L'Oréal Hair Expertise finally makes its way to Canadian soil - well hair really but you know what I mean!

For years now I have been forced to listen to my European friends and bloggers  rave about the L'Oréal Elsève haircare line.  As I never travel to Europe and Christelle is too mean to bring me back presents when she goes - I have never actually been able to get my hands on this line to try it. L'Oréal felt my pain and is bringing me (okay fine,us) products from the line that will specifically meet the demands of Canadian women's hair - to help it cope with the harsh winters and dry, humid summers - with a new look and a new name for the line - Hair Expertise!  Consisting of five categories: damaged, dry, coloured, frizzy and dull hair - there is something for everyone!

For damaged hair: Total Repair 5 - a pro-keratine (the conditioning formula that reinforces each hair fibre to give it strength to resist daily wear and tear) and ceramide (the formula restores smoothness to the hair fibre, leaving it soft to the touch with a healthy looking shine) enriched formula that targets 5 of the top Canadian hair problems: weak, limp, lifeless, dull and straw-like hair without weighing it down.
Total Repair 5 Repairing Shampoo - 385ml - $5.99 - penetrates the hair to deliver targeted root-to-tip nutrition.  hair is thoroughly clean and ultra shiny all over.

  1. I am pretty happy about this. Used to love the Sleek, Shimmer and Nutrition versions before I moved to Canada, so it is nice to see these come. My hair definitely needs some help with the crazy winters here.

  2. The Nutrisleek was my favourite serum before I moved here! Couldn't understand why I couldn't find it.

  3. sweet =D
    looks like a great line~
