OUR BEST SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER FOR DAMAGED HAIR
Your damaged strands need some care and attention, and the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Total Repair 5 Repairing Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris Elvive Total Repair 5 Repairing Conditioner were created to provide just that. This duo is formulated with ceramides and protein to tackle the five signs of damage: split ends, weakness, roughness, dullness and dehydration. The ceramides and protein work to reinforce the hair fiber and lock in nourishment. Start your wash routine by giving your scalp a deep cleanse with the shampoo, and follow up by coating your hair with the conditioner and letting it sit for a minute or two before rinsing with warm water.
Editor’s Tip: Use the shampoo and conditioner in conjunction with a weekly hair mask for extra hydration for your damaged hair.
