Hi everyone. I recently posted a review of the new L’Oreal Total Repair Extreme shampoo, and today I’m talking about the accompanying deep conditioner: Total Repair Extreme Emergency Recovery Mask. A long time ago, I reviewed the Total Repair 5 deep conditioner that comes in a tub. I LOVE that stuff. However, I wanted to give this a try to see fi it was just as good or even better than the previous version that I loved so much.
The first thing I noticed and that must be addressed is the packaging. A squeezy tube allows much better use of the product and results in significantly less waste. Instead of dropping half of what you have in your hands while you are trying to screw the lid back onto the tub, you can just pop the top closed and you’re done.
In terms of the product, I’m actually not a fan. My issue is that it is too heavy. You have to really rinse your hair to get all of the product out, and if ou don’t rinse well enough, your hair feels greasy and slick. If you do rinse it well, the results aren’t that nourishing. My hair feels okay after I use it, but not any more moisturized than a standard conditioner.
Overall, I would pass on this and instead purchase the L’Oreal deep conditioner that comes in the tub (the yellow one); it works way better in my opinion.
What are your favorite deep conditioners? Let me know in the comments below.
I bought this myself. I’m not getting paid of this post. All opinions are my own.
