Moroccanoil dupe: L’Oreal Extraordinary Oil for coloured hair
05 Saturday Jan 2013
I posted a review last week featuring my hair saviour, Moroccanoil. I love everything about it but the price. I’ve been looking for similar hair oils at a more reasonable price… finally I’ve found one!
The good news is that L’Oreal have recently introduced a new hair oil in their Elvive range that is similar to Moroccanoil but is formulated especially for coloured hair.
The L’Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil contains 8 different flower extracts and has a UV filter to protect coloured hair from fading in the sun. Added bonus!
The oil itself is very light, and a few drops or one pump is more than enough for long, fine hair like mine. You apply by rubbing the oil into your palms and then running through the hair, from root to tip. It can be used on wet hair as well as dry.
It has a strong floral/ musky fragrance, similar to Moroccanoil but much sweeter. It
isn’t as overpowering as the Moroccanoil fragrance but is still noticeable.
The bottle is a luxe glass bottle with hygienic pump for added control over amount dispensed, something that Moroccanoil is sorely missing. It minimises spillages and is good for travelling. A mini travel-sized bottle (with pump) would be really useful though.
In terms of amount of product… it beats Moroccanoil hands down. L’Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil is 100ml for £9.99 compared to Moroccanoil £30 for 100ml.
Since the I coloured my hair again last December, my hair has felt so dry and rough. Extraordinary Oil makes it smoot, silky (without being greasy) and hydrated again. I’ve been using it for a week now and am impressed by how fast it works on my hair. I will definitely be packing this on my weekend trips rather than my Moroccanoil.
