L’Oréal Paris Advanced Haircare Extraordinary Oil Shampoo and Conditioner

I have found a drugstore oil shampoo and conditioner set that is just as nice as my "luxury brands": L’Oréal Paris Advanced Haircare Extraordinary Oil Shampoo and Conditioner (from $4 to $8 each, depending on store). I like oil products for my skin, so when I saw the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Haircare products at the Giant grocery store, I decided to try them. They were on sale, so I had little to lose. To skip to the end, I love the shampoo and conditioner, and I continue to purchase them. They have become my go-to hair products.

Here is what L’Oréal has to say about them...
Dry, lifeless hair? Transform it. Renourish and rejuvenate hair with the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Haircare Extraordinary Oil system. Strands go from dry and lifeless to soft and lustrous in just one wash. Experience the power of L’Oréal Paris Extraordinary Oil with Oil Complex - coconut, argan, chamomile, amla, soja, and sunflower oils. Deep nourishment without the weight for incredibly lustrous, touchably soft hair.

Truth!  The shampoo thoroughly cleanses my hair of mousse and hairspray with one wash. That saves me time in the shower in the morning. The conditioner detangles my hair quickly and leaves it soft, moisturized, and bouncy. Unlike many conditioners, I don't have to use more conditioner than shampoo, so I run out of both around the same time. What more could I want? I think it even reduces frizz from humidity and split ends - and extra added benefit.

L’Oréal keeps changing the packaging, which confused me at first. The last set I purchased looked like the photos here. The container sits flat on it's snap-on top. I have to ensure that it snaps shut or it may leak a little since the fluid flows to the top. I've learned. I see online that L’Oréal may now be calling it 6 Oil Nourish Shampoo and Conditioner. It's the same product.

The shampoo and conditioner were designed for use on all hair types. They are safe for color-treated hair. You can see the ingredients here. There is a problem with the list, though. The ingredients list on my containers does not include propylene glycol. I tend to trust the container rather than the Web site. The light fragrance is enjoyable while I am using the products in the shower, but I don't smell it after I've styled my hair. I've left a set at my hair stylist's salon so that they can use it on me when I visit. I prefer these beauties to their house brand. I've invited my stylist to try it, and she loves it too.

You can find L’Oréal Paris Advanced Haircare Extraordinary Oil Shampoo and Conditioner at mass market drugstores and grocery stores. Watch for sales; they happen often. There are plenty of online sources too, such as Target. I think you'll be pleased with these frugal treasures.

Anytime I can find products that work just as well, or better than, my department store faves, I'm a happy camper! I usually spend a lot of money on hair products because I have thick hair that has gotten dryer since menopause. (Doesn't everything?!?) My long-layered bob has become difficult to comb through after shampooing and conditioning, even with the pricey brands, so you can be SURE that I'll try these, CG. Thanks!

Charlestongirl, I was using two different high-end shampoo and conditioner products when my hairdresser actually suggested I try the L'Oreal Paris advanced Extraoedinary Oil Shampoo and Conditioner because of Hair damage I had. I, too, love it! Actually, I was pleasantly surprised when it actually did the job she said it would, and at a pittance of the price for what I was paying for the High-end products! Wonderful discovery, indeed!

Now, on the high-end side of makeup, my delivery from Bergdof's of the Guerlain Enjoy eyeshadow and the long-lasting eyeliner in Khaki Driver arrived today and I am a very, happy woman! I had to immediately "play" with these gems, and am thrilled with how they look on my eyes. I never would have ventured into these colors if it were not for your post and Eileen's comments! Change is Good! Thank you!

I am looking forward to trying this, but it does contain propylene glycol. I picked it up today. They must have reformulated since you last purchased?

Strange, Anonymous, because I bought the set I'm using within the last month. Go figure!

Sandra, I'm happy that you like the Guerlain colors and the hair products! I sure do.
