In the world of hair care, there are many factors that ultimately decide 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 that are formulated to repair damage, will it weigh down your strands? Enter: Lamellar water. You’ve probably never heard of it, but it’s the latest Korean beauty trend—and we promise you, you’ll most certainly want to learn about this miracle in a bottle. Lamellar water treatments are easy and quick to use, and—dare we say it—they're just what you’ve been seeking for your strands. 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 water technology, including what it is, what benefits it can have, and how to use a lamellar water product in your own hair care routine.
Lamellar water is a liquid treatment for hair that works to repair and visibly transform your hair, making it appear smoother, shinier, and healthier. Because of the lightweight yet potent formula, lamellar water treatments absorb quickly. They work to coat the hair with moisturizing agents and amino acids that target damaged areas of hair, forming thin layers called lamellars that smooth the surface of strands without any weigh down. And that isn’t only true if you have thick, damaged hair. Any hair type, with any damage level, can benefit from a lamellar treatment. The smart technology deposits actives based on how damaged the hair is. The more damage, the more actives that are deposited—that’s how no over-coating is ensured.
Equally important for you and your busy life is the fact that the lamellar water technology 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.
Now, you might be interested in trying lamellar water but wondering where you can snag yourself a bottle. Take a stroll down the drugstore hair care aisle and you’ll quickly see that there aren’t many—if any—options, but we a feeling that will be changing soon! So, keep your eyes peeled.
So, you’ve decided to try a lamellar 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.
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 water treatment to help repair damage, we suggest using a shampoo and conditioner system that’s formulated to do the same. Try the L'Oréal Paris Elvive Total Repair 5 Repairing Shampoo, which works to repair the five visible signs of damaged hair—split ends, weakness, rough texture, a dull appearance, and dehydration. Rinse out completely and move on to the next step—using your treatment!
After you’ve rinsed out your shampoo, it’s time to use the lamellar water. Here’s how: Apply the product onto wet hair, coating it completely, then massage through hair for about eight seconds. After eight seconds, rinse it out, taking care to avoid contact with eyes. It’s as easy as that!
As for how much of a lamellar water treatment you should use, that will depend on your hair texture. If you have medium to fine hair, you won’t need as much product as someone with thick to curly hair.
While many hair masks and treatments are meant to be used in place of your conditioner, that isn’t necessarily the case with lamellar water. While you are completely fine to hop out of the shower after using the lamellar treatment, you can also follow with conditioner. To complete your hair care system, reach for the L'Oréal Paris Elvive Total Repair 5 Repairing Conditioner and apply it primarily onto the lengths and ends of your strands. If your hair needs some deep conditioning, try the L'Oréal Paris Elvive Total Repair 5 Rapid Reviver Deep Conditioner, which also works quickly—in just one minute!
Here’s a hair hack for you: Drying your hair with a cotton T-shirt is gentler than using a cotton towel—which is especially important if you’re trying to protect and revive damaged hair.
Before you pick up your blow-dryer, spray the L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray onto damp strands. This heat protectant spray provides 450-degree protection for all heat tools while also sealing in frizz and shine and blocking out humidity.
The results from your lamellar water 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.
