Loreal Smooth Intense Instant Smoothing Serum Review

By Yamini

Serums are a must specially after shampoo and conditioner when you have dry and frizzy hair. Winters are knocking at the door and so are the problems like dryness and roughness of hair along with frizz. A regular hair serum though can tame the tresses can’t really control the frizz and so I thought to buy a serum that is specially formulated to make hair soft and smooth. That is when I purchased the Loreal Smooth Intense Instant Smoothing Serum. This range has another serum in its kitty which is the Loreal Paris Total Repair 5 serum. Anyways in this post I am going to review the Loreal Smooth intense instant smoothing serum and tell you guys how I liked it. Read on to know more.

The Loreal Smooth Intense instant smoothing serum bottle comes in a metallic finish golden colour cardboard box.  The bottle itself in golden yellow in colour with a flip top cap that shuts really tight. The bottle is light and travel friendly. All the information is written at the back including a full list of ingredients which is really helpful for the users. Overall the packaging is really classy and looks good.

My experience with Loreal Paris Smooth Intense Instant Smoothing Serum:

I really loved the product. I have fine limp and straight hair. So when l tried this serum, I was happy with the results as it gave my hair a good healthy shine and it made them soft. So according to me, it’s a good product for people who are looking for products that will enhance the shine of their hair. It make sense you look confident and enhance your style statement.

Will I recommend this product again?

Overall impact:

I have used various expensive serums that I get from the salons but I found this the best. For people with thin hair, just a few drops of this would do. The bottle itself says that it is for unmanageable and dry hair. I feel it a must try as it is economical. It costs 240/- for a 100 ml which I think is not bad deal. I must appreciate this product a lot.
