5 L'Oréal Paris Hair Treatments to Address Your Peskiest Concerns
For many people, a hair-care routine begins and ends with shampoo and conditioner. And while that duo is essential for a reason — healthy hair will always start with cleansing and nourishing — hair treatments are the real key to addressing hair damage and hair concerns such as dryness, split ends, and fading color.
If you're looking for the best hair treatment for your strands but don't know where to start, look no further than L'Oréal Paris. Yup, the drugstore brand offers must-have products to address a variety of hair care needs. These five new products from the brand will take your hair from damaged to dazzling faster than it takes to snag concert tickets on Ticketmaster.
For Split Ends: L'Oréal Paris Elvive Dream Lengths Savior Fiber Mask, Paraben-Free
If you've been noticing more split ends in your hair, the L'Oréal Paris Elvive Dream Lengths Savior Fiber Mask, Paraben-Free ($11) will be a welcome salve. Created with fiber concentrate and collagen peptides to revive damaged ends, it works by wrapping around your strands to target the weakened parts of your hair. To activate the fiber technology, spread the mask in your hands, gently clapping your hands together to change the formula from cream to fibrous and almost string-like. Apply it on wet hair after shampooing and conditioning, and massage the mask in for two to three minutes before rinsing it out.
For Weak Hair: L'Oréal Paris EverPure Bond Strengthening Pre-Shampoo Treatment
Every time you color, bleach, or apply heat to your hair, it can become damaged, leading to your strands weakening from within. That's when it's time to reach for the L'Oréal Paris EverPure Bond Strengthening Pre-Shampoo Treatment ($13). This pre-shampoo hair treatment penetrates inside the hair cortex to rebuild weak hair bonds and reduce breakage after just one use. Before shampooing, apply the treatment to your damp hair and let it sit for about five to 10 minutes. Rinse out the pre-shampoo, then follow with your regular shampoo and conditioner.
For Dry Hair: L'Oréal Paris Elvive Hyaluron + Plump Flash Hydration Wonder Water, Sulfate-Free
The L'Oréal Paris Elvive Hyaluron + Plump Flash Hydration Wonder Water, Sulfate-Free ($11) is a lamellar rinse-out treatment that's water based and formulated with hyaluronic acid to target dryness, leaving your hair soft and hydrated, but without any weigh-down or heaviness. Think of your favorite conditioning treatment, but with a super lightweight consistency, since lamellar treatments target the dry and damaged parts of the hair. Shampoo your hair as usual, then grab the wonder water and apply it to your lengths (avoiding your roots so they don't get greasy), massage the product into your hair, and leave it for eight seconds. Rinse it out, then follow up with conditioner. Plan to use this hair treatment about two to three times per week for as long your strands feel dry.
For Faded Hair Color: L'Oréal Paris EverPure Sulfate-Free Signature Masque, Color Care Hair Mask
Whether you're a hair dye pro or a newbie to the world of hair color, you likely know that color-treated hair needs a bit more love and care in order to continue looking smooth and shiny. A thick and nourishing mask treatment like the L'Oréal Paris EverPure Sulfate-Free Signature Masque, Color Care Hair Mask ($13) is a great choice to keep your color looking fresh, and the vegan protein in the mask will help nourish and hydrate your hair while keeping your color in tact. It's also very easy to use: just apply the mask through clean, damp hair, leave it in for five minutes, then rinse it out, and you're done.
For All Hair Types: L'Oréal Paris EverPure Sulfate Free Simply Clean Midnight Color Care Serum
No matter your hair type or hair concern, a hair serum is a great addition to your existing hair care routine. The L'Oréal Paris EverPure Sulfate Free Simply Clean Midnight Color Care Serum ($13) is formulated with rosemary essential oil to add shine to your strands, while also leaving your hair softer and with less breakage. Before going to sleep, massage the serum into your lengths and ends, leaving it overnight. There's no need to rinse the treatment out in the morning — you can go straight into styling.
