Default L'Oreal Out of Bed

There's a huge 13 page thread on this stuff on the product review board. The acronym is LOOB. Anyway, it is in a little tub and it is marketed as a creme gel to create a bedhead look. However, the clever curlies here discovered that using it on wet hair under gel gived great results. I tried it last night before plopping, followed by LA looks gel (yellow). I was very impressed. It seems to give body and enhance curl. AND, I was impressed with how cleanly the stuff rinsed off my hands.

Yeah -I like it ok but the smell is horrendous.
I like Boots better.

The smell is from the tub for me, it never smells like anything on my hair fortunately.
While I like say recoil and boots, Loob has really great clumping and boy is my hair shiny when I use it. It's nice that I can get it local too and it's not expensive. It works well with that tightly would spray, or I can actually use it alone right now while it's so dry.

If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!

I've never used it under a gel - it works for me just over a leave-in .

I think it's a lot lighter than boots, which weighed my hair down. This gives me more volume. The smell bothered me at first, but I got used to it and it doesn't linger anyway. I'm on my third tub, and I still love it!

Bailey, you're on your third tub already?? I bought 3 for the next 4 months (hoping to come back in july), but maybe I should buy a couple more.

Well, I've been using it since October, so that's 2 tubs in 4 months (I just opened the third one a few days ago). I guess that's a lot, but I tend to need a lot of product in my hair.

I think I started using my first tub in December, so about 1 tub per 2 months sounds about right for me, too. I think you'll be fine, lush

One of the ingred is PEG/PPG 22-24 dimethicone. Does this mean it is water sol.? I can't fing info on that in the ingred thread. Anyone?
I also found the white tub that it used to be in at Kmart FYI.

Lush , if you run out before you come back you could post for a swap on the board and see what happens. I'm sure one of would be happy to oblige we PJ's can help an overseas sister in need. I have personally shipped overseas and it is not that difficult.

I looked but could not find this on the product review board. Can someone help? The PJ in me is dying to try this one! :P

Thanks,

Yay! Sharing the LOOB love. I actually bought a third (I'm still in the middle of my first ) tub of it yesterday because a drug store was in had the black containers (I have 2 of the white) and I couldn't resist seeing if it worked the same in my hair . . .
