First impressions: L'Oreal Serioxyl & Ever Creme 6 in 1 Cleansing Balm

2 comments

I have to admit that I'm fairly obsessed with my hair since as long as I can remember. And it's because my hair was never easy to handle - it's nice in texture, smooth and shiny, but also gets greasy easily (second day at most) and it never had any volume that I wanted. That being said, with years, it became damaged from different hair dyes and highlights - and needless to say blow drying didn't help. With all of that in mind, I spent years looking for the perfect shampoo. Conditioners are not that hard to find, but a good shampoo that will make my hair clean and stay clean longer while preserving it's natural shine and not making it frizzy is especially rare to find. That was when I discovered L'Oreal Ever Riche line and also their professional hair salon range of products. I've tried Pro Keratin Refill and Volumetry and they're both great - Volumetry was especially close to my holy grail shampoo product that I've been trying to find. Recently I visited a nail salon where the owner recommended L'Oreal's Serioxyl shampoo & serum to me and I decided to buy it (I instantly liked the scent - fresh mint oil).  Also a few days prior to that I've encountered a new product at a local Muller drugstore - L'Oreal Ever Creme 6 in 1 Cleansing Balm & Shampoo (it's both a shampoo and a conditioner in one product). Today I decided to give you a brief opinions on these two products as I've been quite pleased with both of them.

Moram priznati da sam pomalo opsjednuta svojom kosom otkako pamtim. A to je zbog činjenice da mi je kosa dosta zahtjevna, barem za moj ukus - ima ok teksturu, glatka je i sjaji se, ali je i tanka i brzo se masti te nikada nije imala volumen kojeg sam toliko željela. Također s godinama je postala oštećena bojanjem i pramenovima, a ne moram napominjati da nije pomoglo ni sušenje fenom (koje mi je neizbježno). Potraga za savršenim šamponom trajala je godinama, uz prolazne zaljubljenosti u razne brendove. Tek kada sam zahvaljujući Essie Button (super blogerica + youtuberica) otkrila L'Oreal Ever Riche liniju shvatila sam da postoji nešto što je kao skrojeno za moj tip kose. Također tad sam se bacila u temeljitije istraživanje L'Oreal profesionalne salonske linije šampona i isprobala Pro Keratin Refill i Volumetry linije koje su obje sjajne. Volumetry je posebno odgovarao mom tipu kose, a Pro Keratin Refill je savršen za dubinski oštećenu kosu. Nedavno sam posjetila salon za nokte gdje mi je vlasnica preporučila Serioxyl šampon i serum iz L'Orealove professionnel linije i ostala sam odmah oduševljena mirisom proizvoda. Par dana prije toga u Muelleru sam uzela L'Oreal Ever Creme 6 u 1 šampon i balzam (u jednom proizvodu je i šampon i regenerator) te sam danas odlučila podijeliti prve dojmove s vama. 

L'Oreal Professionnel Serioxyl Shampoo (15$ - professional hair salons)


If you're a lover of minty, fresh flavors and scents you're gonna have to try this shampoo. It smells as if you're bathing in a mint tea with rosemary. The scent is really strong and piercing, for me personally, it's great in those mornings when you can't seem to wake up easily; and if I had to use one term to explain it - I'd say herbal delight. All things minty instantly make me feel better, cleaner and happier, so finding a shampoo that has a naturally strong fragrance like this one was a huge thing for me. Serioxyl is a professional line used in hair salons and is meant for those who have weak, thin hair that gets greasy easily and that's been damaged. This shampoo will help your hair become alive and strong again, while making it extra clean and nourished. It should also help prevent hair loss. I would definitely recommend a stronger conditioner with this shampoo - as it cleans so thoroughly that it will remove all sebum and oils from your hair so if your hair is dry it might need some additional conditioning after using it. I will continue using it and will probably come back with a more detailed review, but for now, this is the best shampoo I've ever used - a perfect base for all of your additional hair styling. It also provides better volume than Volumetry line so keep it in mind as well. 

Ako volite miris mentola i svježinu u kosi nakon pranja morat ćete isprobati ovaj šampon. Znam da se mnogi kod nas reklamiraju kao šamponi mentol mirisa, ali nikad zapravo do sada nisam naišla na neki koji bi zaista opravdao takav marketing. Serioxyl linija obogaćena je uljem prirodne mente i vjerujem da taj prodirući miris dolazi upravo od samog sastava proizvoda, a ne umjetnih parfemskih dodataka. Već od prvog korištenja voljela sam s njim prati kosu jer me odmah razbudi, popravi raspoloženje, a i istovremeno umiri i pripremi za dan koji me čeka (menta ima ovakav učinak i inače, zato je čaj od nje izuzetno dobar za anksiozne osobe). Ovaj šampon pomaže kosi da živne i dobije prirodnu lepršavost, dok je istovremeno nevjerojatno čista i glatka. Dubinsko čišćenje jedan je od glavnih aduta ove linije, šampon mi iz kose makne sav višak drugih proizvoda, sebum i masnoću koja se nakuplja na tjemenu te je ona nakon njega pripremljena za sve daljnje tretmane. Upravo radi ovoga smatram ga odličnim baznim šamponom na kojeg se super nadopunjuju maske i regeneratori. Nastavit ću s korištenjem i vraćam se s opširnijom recenzijom nakon što potrošim cijelo pakiranje jer me zanimaju i dugotrajni efekti ovog šampona. Također, meni je ovaj šampon pružio bolji volumen nego Volumetry linija pa obratite pažnju na to. 

L'Oreal Ever Creme 6 in 1 Cleansing Balm (8$ - Muller drugstores)


Embarrassing as it is to admit - I had no idea I was purchasing a product that was both a shampoo and a conditioner in one. In fact, I never knew products like this existed (you learn something new each day). I thought I was purchasing a regular shampoo from this line that has changed packaging and went to some minor re-branding. So what does it mean to have two products in one? It means saving a lot of time. However - there are some small downsides to this. This is not a shampoo that will clean heavily greasy hair. For that you'll need Serioxyl mentioned above or something stronger. But for someone whose hair is not too dirty and who's been washing it often, this is a great product to use in between washes or perhaps on those days when you just want your hair to rest from heavy cleansing. I've personally used it on those working days when I know I'll just be in office all day or on those weekends when you still want clean hair but don't need longevity or extreme freshness. The balm part of the product is better  - it really makes my hair soft, shiny and smooth. That's why I've developed a great combo - I usually use Serioxyl first - to thoroughly wash my hair and then this balm for second washing and a nice, subtle conditioning effect. Not to be confused - yes, this really functions as both a shampoo and a conditioner - your hair will be clean after using it and you can rely on it in most daily situations. 

Koliko god mi neugodno bilo priznati - nisam zapravo znala da kupujem 2 u 1 proizvod dok nisam došla doma i pročitala opis na etiketi. Na prvu mi je djelovalo kao da je moja omiljena linija promijenila pakiranje iz tube u ono sa pumpicom i u naletu uzbuđenja kupila šampon. No zapravo sam istovremeno kupila i regenerator. Što zapravo znači imati dva proizvoda u jednom i kako je to moguće? Zapravo, to znači uštedu vremena koja će super doći svima koji nemaju pretjerano zahtjevnu kosu. Ipak, ovakav proizvod ima male nedostatke - ovo nije šampon koji će dubinski oprati kosu kao Serioxyl spomenut gore. Dobar je za one koji ju peru svaki dan ili kojima treba samo mali popravak, a ne temeljito čišćenje. Ja ga koristim vikendom ili kad znam da u uredu mogu pustiti kosu da se odmara i da neću imati nekakav posebno ozbiljan event za kojeg trebam "savršenu kosu". No zašto onda kupiti ovaj proizvod? Po meni je odličan jer zaista funkcionira kao blagi šampon i dosta jak regenerator u jednom. U vrlo malo vremena kosa je oprana i spremna za ostatak dana, a i da se ne zabrinete, zaista će biti čista, samo će se eventualno brže zamastiti nego s nekim jačim šamponom. Sa svim rečenim, razvila sam super kombinaciju - obično prvo koristim Serioxyl i onda za drugo pranje ovaj šampon koji mi je odmah i umjesto maske/njege. Zapravo sam dosta zadovoljna tom kombinacijom za sada, a za dublje dojmove pričekat ću da prođe još neko vrijeme.



Koji Vi trenutno šampon koristite? Jeste li isprobali ove proizvode?

    1. Hvala :) da, oni su stvarno super kao kombinacija, drago mi je da imam oba jer mi je Ever Creme super za dane kad ne idem nikud posebno, a ovaj je odličan za sve one druge dane kad baš trebaš savršenu kosu :D Mislila sam ti ga već pretočiti u nešto da isprobaš prije kupnje.
