This is the first installment in my Hair Growth Challenge series (find out more here). As promised I'm reviewing L'Oreals new Elvive Fibrology range, which promises to increase your hair's natural thickness, provide body and bounce. The range contains five products (I couldn't get hold of the serum as it was out of stock everywhere I looked but I'll try to get my hands on it soon) a shampoo and conditioner, a thickness masque, a thickness booster and a double serum which also acts as a leave-in conditioner.
A product which claims to actually thicken your hair from within sounds ridiculous, surely such outlandish claims cannot be true? Well, L'Oreal have developed a new breakthrough ingredient called Filloxane after 17 years of research. Filloxane can physically penetrate the hair shaft, once inside it expands and thickens the fibre and remains inside for a long lasting effect, the more you use the Fibrology products, the more Filloxane can fill your hair fibres, resulting in thicker, fuller hair.
I don't have fine hair, which is what this product is predominantly aimed at however I do love thick hair-the thicker the better in my opinion. As I'm trying to grow my hair long I'll take all the help I can get. I started using Fibrology almost 3 weeks ago. I used the shampoo and conditioner each time I washed my hair (which is about 2-3 times a week). I used the masque 1-2 times per week. The thickness booster is an odd product which you mix in with the conditioner, it's consistency is water-like and it melts into conditioner when combined, I used this each wash as well. The products are surprisingly light-weight and easily rinsed out. The masque is a thick, rich, almost sticky consistency but like the rest of the range, it's easily rinsed out. Notably, each time after use my hair looked fuller and bouncier. I'm not sure if you'd say they've made my hair thicker, it's too early to tell but certainly so far, so good!
What it's supposed to do:
- Increase hair's thickness over time
- Provide long lasting fullness and bounce
- It's early days yet (I've been using the range for 3 weeks) but certainly my hair is looking fuller and healthy
- Light-weight products
- Leaves hair feeling and looking fuller
- There's not enough Thickness Booster for the amount that you need, so it wouldn't last very long
Have you tried the Fibrology range yet?
