Sample Sunday - L'Oreal Extraordinary Oil.

Hello, how are you?
I realised recently that I have loaaaads of samples that I've received when buying other products, so I thought I would do a little 'Sample Sunday' series to use them up and do a mini review on each one. If you do something similar, leave me your links in the comments below. I have by no means come up with this idea so I'm not claiming it at all haha.

So the first product in this series is the L'Oreal Extraordinary Oil. I had a 3.5ml sachet from Red Magazine. I decided to use this because my hair is majorly long and the ends aren't in the nest shape at the moment, but as I have just booked two holidays, I can't really afford a haircut (especially seeing as hair salons are totes expensive here in France). So I cracked this out to try and remedy my ends a bit. Obviously 3.5ml only covered my ends, but then I'm not a massive fan of applying hair oil to the whole head anyway.

 The product says that it's a versatile product and lists four different ways of using it - so before shampooing, as a masque, before styling, or as a finishing touch. As I said, my ends are in dire need of moisture so I decided to apply the oil and put my hair in a bun whilst I did some work for around 30mins. Then I shampooed and conditioned as usual. I should have taken pics of my hair afterwards, because I think it actually did make quite a bit of difference to the appearance of my hair - I had less frizzy bits and even the very ends were glossy and shiny. Overall, I will definitely be looking out for this product in the shops.

What's your fave hair oil? Have you tried this one?

  1. This is a good idea, I have so many samples and they just sit around not being used! I didn't know you could get samples of hair oils either, just never seen that before. This is one of my favourite oils to use as a 'finishing product' after styling :) xxx

    1. I usually never get around to using them haha! I think I will purchase this, it was great to use :) xxx

    2. I have a sample will try it & let you know how I got on

  2. i've used argon oil before from Superdrug - it's actually such a good product!:) now following you hun xxx

    1. Oh really, is it just a superdrug own brand? Always on the hunt for a hair oil! xxx
