In the world of hair care, there are many factors that ultimately determine whether or not a new product deserves a spot in your regular routine. First of all, how much time will it add? Also, will it really be worth it? And, when it comes to hair treatments, will it weigh down your strands? Enter: Lamellar technology. You’ve probably never heard of it, but we promise you, you’ll most certainly want to learn about this miracle in a bottle.
Lamellar technology, a type of liquid hair treatment, is nothing like the hair masks you know of. The texture of it looks like water but transforms into a light froth when it mixes with the water on your hair in the shower! This wonder water hair treatment is easy and quick to use, and—dare we say it—just what you’ve been seeking for your strands, because it gives you a tailored amount of care, depending on the amount of damage your hair has. That means your hair won’t experience over-conditioning or weigh down. Best of all, it’s seamless to add it into your normal hair care routine, right alongside your shampoo and conditioner. Plus, it’ll make your blowout look even better! Keep reading to learn all about lamellar technology, including what it is and its benefits for your hair.
WHAT IS Wonder WATER?
Wonder water is a new generation of liquid rinse-out hair treatment that works to visibly transform your hair immediately, making it appear smooth, shiny, and healthy-looking. Because of the lightweight yet effective formula, this lamellar technology wonder water treatment spreads throughout hair quickly. Wonder water works to coat the hair with moisturizing agents and an amino acid and it targets damaged areas of hair, forming small and very organized thin layers called lamellars that help smooth the surface of strands without weigh down. And that isn’t only true if you have thick, damaged hair. Any hair type with damage (caused by anything from heat tools to regular brushing) can benefit from a lamellar treatment. The smart technology deposits care based on how damaged the hair is. The more damage, the more care that is deposited. Smart technology that works with your hair!
Equally important for you and your busy life is the fact that the wonder water works fast—and we mean really fast. Literally, eight seconds is all it takes, and after a single use, hair is already reaping the benefits of the lamellar technology.
Finding yourself interested in trying this wonder water, but wondering where you can snag yourself a bottle? Good news, you can now get your hands on the L’Oréal Paris Elvive 8 Second Wonder Water Lamellar Hair Treatment. Next, let’s talk about what to do once the treatment is in reach.
How to use wonder water
So, you’ve decided to try a water treatment for yourself—and now you need to know exactly how to use it for the best results. Here, we’re walking you through each step.
STEP 1: SHAMPOO AS USUAL
Start off by hopping in the shower and shampooing your strands per usual, focusing your shampoo on your scalp (rather than your lengths and ends). Since you’re likely using a lamellar treatment to help your hair look healthier, we suggest using a shampoo and conditioner system that’s formulated to do the same. Shampoo, rinse out completely, and move on to the next step—using the water treatment!
STEP 2: APPLY Wonder WATER
After you’ve rinsed out your shampoo, it’s time to use the wonder water treatment. Here’s how: Apply the product onto wet hair, coating it completely from mid-length to ends, then massage through hair for about eight seconds, in a zig zag motion. You’ll notice a frothy cream-like consistency emerge as the formula comes in contact with water, and don’t worry if you feel a slight warming sensation, that means it’s working! After you’ve fully massaged your lengths, rinse it out, taking care to avoid contact with eyes. It’s as easy as that!
As for how much of a wonder water treatment you should use, that will depend on your hair texture and length. If you have medium to fine hair, you won’t need as much product as someone with thick to curly hair. But no matter what your hair type and texture is, your hair will definitely benefit from our innovative and smart hair technology.
STEP 3: FOLLOW WITH CONDITIONER
While many hair masks and treatments are meant to be used in place of your conditioner, that isn’t necessarily the case with a wonder water treatment. While you are completely fine to hop out of the shower after using the lamellar treatment, you can also follow with conditioner if that is your normal routine. If your hair needs some deep conditioning, you can try the L'Oréal Paris Elvive Total Repair 5 Rapid Reviver Deep Conditioner, which also works quickly—in just one minute!
STEP 4: DRY HAIR WITH A T-SHIRT
Here’s a hair hack for you: Drying your hair with a cotton T-shirt is gentler on strands than using a cotton towel—which is especially important if you’re trying to protect and revive damaged hair.
STEP 5: BLOW-DRY HAIR
The results from your wonder water treatment will be even more apparent if you give yourself a blowout. In case you aren’t a total pro at wielding a blow-dryer and a round brush, here’s How to Blow Dry Your Hair at Home.
