Today let’s talk about shampoo. I have really enjoyed the L’Oreal Total Repair 5 shampoo in the past, so when I saw the “extreme” version, I figured I would love it just as much. I would probably love it just as much, if not more.
I’ll be honest from the start – I don’t love it. There is something surprisingly lacking about it when compared with the original version. I’m not sure if it was too much moisture, but my hair didn’t eel as silky and soft when using it. That’s not to say my hair was dry – it wasn’t. But it wasn’t as moisturized as with the Total Repair 5.
One final thing to mention, which I find to be very important – it mad my dandruff HORRIBLE. I’ve talked about my dandruff before, but in case you don’t know, I’ve had a routine that kepis under control for the most part. However, when I change out my “non-dandruff” shampoo, sometimes there are ones that will irritate it, and this one made it a lot worse.
Overall, I would say skip this one in favor of the the L’Oreal Total Repair 5. I enjoy that one so much more, and since they are the same price, I see no reason to choose this one over the original. What are your thoughts? Have you tried both?
I bought this myself. I’m not getting paid for this post. All opinions are my own.
