L'Oreal EverSleek

I was at the store today, and the PJ in me saw a new set of bottles in with all the L'Oreal silicone-free stuff. L'Oreal EverSleek is in orange containers, and it has none of the mineral oil that the other L'Oreal silicone-free lines have. There are two types of low-poos and conditioners (regular frizz-control and damaged/processed frizz-control), a tub of deep conditioner, a pump bottle of leave-in, and a frizz taming creme serum. I splurged on the silicone-free frizz serum, as I am still looking for the perfect touch up small product that I can throw into my purse. I will report back after I've tried it. Meanwhile, I am curious as to how the shampoos and rinse-out condishes stack up. Anyone tried it?

Thank you Saila!! I'm sorry, I thought the ingredients were in the original link, but they weren't.

I have now tried out the L'Oreal Hair Expertise EverSleek Frizz Taming Creme Serum, and I can say that a tiny dab (well less than one pump) rubbed between palms and smoothed over the hair can tame errant flyaways. But as a serum to be applied when the hair is soaking wet? I am no so impressed with that claim, especially given the glycerin content in these low dews that can be drying. It does seem to have clumping properties, though.

I also saw this in the store, but was seriously overstocked on products so I didn't buy. I hope this conversation continues, and if I buy and try I will post my results.

I am particularly interested in the silicone free conditioner, anyone having good results with it?
Very Thick dry 3b BSL.
Fine, medium porosity
Right now I am using GVP conditioning balm for cowash and RO,
my hair loves protein.
for styling my base is BRHG I can use it alone but prefer with Curl Keeper. I sulphate poo once a month or so as needed.

I bought the reparative shampoo and condish today and wow my hair is so friggin soft. Also a lot better curl formation and lots of ringlets. I have been having problems with my current hair regimen (see in signature) my hair has just been flat and stringly and I knew I needed to change things up a bit. I still used the same stylers as always and plopped and I was just blown away by the results. I'm very impressed so far. Hope this continues to impress

I've been using two Eversleek shampoos (Intense Smoothing and REparative Smoothing) and the conditioner (Reparative Smoothing Conditioner in the tube) for about two months now. As an alternative to the expensive DEVA low-poo and no-poo, I think the shampoos are acceptable. The Intense Smoothing shampoo creates a suspicious amount of lather; the REparative smoothing shampoo not so much. Both leave my hair and scalp feeling a bit cleaner than the DEVA poos, but not as soft. The conditioner doesn't impress me at all; it seems no better or worse than any other comparable drugstore option. It is by no means a deep conditioner.

The packaging screams "Sulfate-free/Silicone Free/Paraben-Free" and, curiously, 100% vegan". What other noxious substances may be lurking within, I do not know.

BTW I bought the Eversleek products at a Target in the U.S. for $5.99 each. I have yet to find a sulfate- silicone- and paraben-free product that compares to that price, so I'm sticking with these guys for a while!

Cheers,
Karen

I'm interested to see how people are still getting on with this. I've only fairly recently discovered it in the UK, and so far I'm fairly impressed. I've been low-poo for a while (I had been CG for a couple of years, and stopped because of my wedding last year - long story), and the EverSleek shampoo has certainly given me pretty good results. I agree that the amount of lather is suspicious - basically I think it doesn't have sulphates but does have lots of foaming agents - but despite that it doesn't seem to dry my hair out. I was using a fully natural shampoo before that, and found that my hair was much more tangled and dry after washing with that than with the L'Oreal.

I've got itchy feet about my current routine though, and I'm thinking that I'm probably going to go back to being CG - therefore I'll be trying the EverSleek conditioner with my CG routine, as it's just what I have in the shower at the moment. I'll let you know how it's going if anyone's interested.

Incidentally, I am trying to only buy cruelty-free products, and have got in touch with L'Oreal and had it verified that this line is not tested on animals, if that's a consideration for anyone else.

Any more news from people on this line? Has anyone new tried it? CG or low-poo? How does it fare over time? I'd love to hear from you. I've been away from NC for AGES and have missed the curl chat! x

i was looking for a product to use after scrunching out the crunch to fix certain curls that were a little loose as well as to smooth frizz. i purchased the finishing cream and the serum. i like the serum better for my purposes, but neither of them are really the product i am looking for. i used to use frizz ease secret weapon... to bad it has silicones.
