L'Oreal Elvive Fibrology Thickening Booster 30ml £5.99.

L'Oreal Elvive Fibrology Thickness Creation Double Creation 2x15ml £6.99.
As I've been accumulating quite a lot of different hair products lately, I thought it was only appropriate to share some of the latest stuff I've been trying with you. I probably should have brought the conditioner to go with these, and the hair masque as well so I have the whole collection, but I was tempted by other things. My bad. I brought these from Boots, and you can click here to view their Fibrology range online. When I brought these in store, they had a 3 for £10 offer on different L'Oreal Elvive products, so I actually got the thickness booster and the thickness creation and an intensive repair hair masque (not shown) for £10, so I saved quite a bit of money. I don't know if this offer is still on in store, but they do currently have some price drops online.

I won't go into massive details for each product, as they're pretty self-explanatory, and you should be able to read what they say on the bottles. The shampoo to start off with really does leave my hair feeling thicker, even straight after I've rinsed it out. Obviously it would work better if I had the conditioner to use afterwards as well, but I am currently using the L'Oreal Elvive Triple Resist Reinforcing Conditioner (click here) as I like to mix things up a bit. It contains filloxane, which penetrates deep within the hair and this helps to expand the diameter of each individual hair, giving it a thicker look. This ingredient stays in the hair for a long period of time, so it keeps hair looking thicker for quite a while.

The thickening booster serum is a little weird for me, in all honesty. I haven't yet decided if I'd buy it again and let me explain why. It says that you're supposed to use the same amount of this serum of conditioner that you intend to use, but both at the same time. I don't do this. This is because I'm just so tight-fisted with money, so I use it like it's sacred. This said, I do use enough to cover all my hair with it, but there just isn't a lot of product for your money I don't feel. However, I have noticed that using this has helped my hair look and feel thicker, so it's doing its job and I can't complain too much. It also has a really clean, pleasant smell to it that remains on my hair even after I've used it. This is intended to be used at the same time as your conditioner, so you put this on first, then put your conditioner on as usual without rinsing the thickening booster out beforehand.

After I've rinsed out the booster and my conditioner, I then apply the hair masque that I have, blah blah blah. You get the drill. Leave it a little while, rinse out after 5-10 minutes, get out, dry myself, do whatever else.

After I've let my hair dry a little bit so it's damp and not soaking anything around me, I'll then apply some of the thickness creation double serum. As you can see on the bottle/box, the pink liquid is what thickens the hairs, and the white liquid works with it to smooth out the surface of your hair, which is an added bonus. The pump on top of the bottle ensures that you get an equal pump of both liquids at the same time. All I do is mix it together by rubbing my hands together to spread the serum about, then I apply it all over my hair by gently rubbing my hair so that it gets all my hair. This serum is one that you can apply to damp or dry hair, and it's recommended to be used daily to help ensure your hair looks thicker and smoother.

As a side note, all of these products say that they contain filloxane, like I mentioned. Although, I've looked at the list of ingredients and I can't see it stated... Am I just being blind or is it a shortened version of the ingredients?

Have you tried these products? If so, what did you think?
