I am currently using the Loreal 6 Oil Nourish Shampoo and Conditioner. And I am happy with the results! In the review post, I have also shared that I would like to try the serum as well. Obviously, this isn’t the 6 oil nourish serum. It is from the total repair 5 range. This came in a huge box which contained the shampoo, conditioner, and the serum. The box was on good discount and my sister uses the total repair 5 shampoo and conditioner so this was for her. But she doesn’t use a serum so I took it from the box. ( 😛 ) And I have been using this hair serum for quite some time now. Today I will be sharing my experience with it.

The bottle is opaque white in color with a red flip open cap which closes tight. Due to its size and the cap quality, it can be easily carried around in your purse with no spills. Both the bottle and the box in which it comes packed, contain all the important details about the product.

My Hair Type

Chemically straightened

Color and Texture

The serum is colorless and is very lightweight. It has a non-oily and non-greasy texture. With slight silicone feel to it. Of course, because it contains silicones.


It has a very yummy candy floss plus bubble gum mix kind of fragrance! (I am always sniffing on the nozzle before usage. 😀 )The fragrance quickly spreads in the entire room and also lingers around for quite a bit post application.


As my hair is chemically straightened I am very strict about this 3 step hair care routine which is- shampoo, conditioner and using a hair serum. I also use hair oil and hair mask once in a while depending on what my hair needs. Often most people after getting chemically straight hair complain about dryness and damaged hair. The reason is that they have not been taking good care of their hair by following a strict regime.

I always credit a good hair day to good hair serum. And this is why one must invest in a good hair serum which actually tames their hair frizz. I do have a few flyovers here and there. Also due to the humidity, my hair needs extra care and protection, which the serum looks after.

I won’t be talking about what the serum claims because the claims are too heavy of this entire total repair 5 range and some of them, let’s be real- doesn’t even sound possible!

The total repair 5 serum helps in controlling the hair frizz and makes the hair look shiny and healthy. It doesn’t make my scalp or hair greasy. (Anyways my hair turns greasy naturally on the 3rd-day post hair wash.) It is very light and can be used by all hair types even on treated hair like mine.

I do not have split ends as I get regular hair cuts done. So I can not comment on the ‘less split end‘ claim.

Final Verdict

What else you could ask to have good hair, every day? 🙂 I will be definitely buying this in the future and would like to check out other Loreal serums as well.

  1. Rakhi Parsai says:

    This is my go-to brand and product as my hair is quite frizzy in nature. I love how this serum tames the unruly hair. Loved reading your post about my favourite product.

  2. Varsh says:

    Loreal products don’t need any convincing for me. They’re the best in the market. Giving this serum a try soon!

  3. dipika says:

    I am little vary of using Loreal on my hair and it didn’t suit me. However, have seen many of my friends using it. Sure, this is a great deal of a product for those whom it suits.

  4. Snehalata Jain says:

    I have used L’Oreal Shampoo & Conditioners and love them.Going by your review of this Serum, I guess will try it.

  5. Debra Roberts says:

    I love these serums that take a dime size and do so much! I have tried many of these, but never this one. I’ll have to check the cost in comparison to the one I use. I have fine hair that tends to run dry.

  6. Tracy C says:

    The yummy smell would be enough to make me buy this product again and again. I love that it’s so lightweight and doesn’t make your hair greasy. Great review!

  7. Thuy says:

    Right now I can’t try this because it doesn’t indicate if it’s okay on color treated hair. However, I have had great experiences with L’Oréal products so this is definitely on my radar for later

  8. Pragnya Mishra says:

    I used it for some time before switching to an organic option. As you stated it did work great for fizzy hair without the oily look

  9. Erica (The Prepping Wife) says:

    This sounds like a great product. L’Oreal generally makes good stuff that doesn’t drain a bank account. The only thing that makes me hesitant about this product is the fragrance. I don’t do bubble gum or candy floss. Seems like the kind of thing a 12 year old would go for in terms of smell. But that is just me and my preferences. I do like the fact it is such a lightweight product that doesn’t leave hair looking greasy. I may have to see if I can get past the smell and give it a try.

  10. Deepika says:

    I love to use natural and herbal products for my skin and hairs. I tried almost all the brands and at last, I stuck with Himalaya. I think this review will be helpful for those who want to know about the L’oreal product range.

  11. Lyosha says:

    the product looks lovely, I would like to try it for myself esp as the price tag is not that big, totally affordable. very pretty pictures too

  12. Kim Paradise - MumFLIX says:

    Seems like a great product, only that it’s not organic.
    I like that it has an interesting fragrance of candy floss + bubble gum.

  13. Elizabeth | Tiredmom Supermom says:

    This is an awesome product, i use it all the time! With kids keeping me so busy all the time, who has time for a haircut? This is a great product to help keep my hair looking great.

  14. Lindsay Brown says:

    This looks like a great product. I am always looking for different hair serum products as my hair dries out pretty fast and I do have split end issues. I will have to give this product a try!

  15. The Sunny Side Lifestyle Co. says:

    I have naturally curly hair so a hair serum isn’t for me however I will be buying this product for my daughter. She is in the market for something to control fly-aways and this sounds like it will do the trick. I appreciate that this is a mass-market product we can find at a CVS in the US.

  16. Trish Veltman says:

    I hate having my hair cut so split ends are typical for me – might have to try this see if it helps.

  17. Diane C DeNicola says:

    In previous posts, you have hit me some products I have never heard of but this is actually one I have used in the past and I agree as well that I love it. L’Oreal overall makes great products but this serum worked wonders on my hair. This actually reminded me to get a hold of a bottle again as I am due!
