Guilty, as I am writing after long. Hope you guys are chilling with cool breezes of December. I am so thrilled to plan picnics and road trips as the year ends. While peter-pattter of rain drops and romantic drizzles made me lazy and sleepy last week, I barely wanted to make it out of bed. Also, I was suffering from vacation-hangover. I was a bundle of happiness while visiting home for 10 days and I will write about my visit soon. December brings festivities and warmth of X-mas and New-year, but guess what suffers in this gorgeous climate? Our Skin and hair. Skin dries out and hair ends tend to tangle and split. Hope you readers are keeping your skin moisturised. I am posting L’Oreal Professionnel Serie Expert Vitamino Color A-OX Color Radiance Protecting Shampoo review today to give you gorgeous people a much needed gyan for those beautiful manes.

My Take On L’Oreal Professionnel Serie Expert Vitamino Color A-OX Color Radiance Protecting Shampoo:
Packaging: The shampoo comes in a baby pink bottle. The cap shuts tightly, but is not entirely spill-proof. Overall packaging of the product is nice, but I wish the bottle was transparent for me to have a peek of product used.
Consistency: Consistency of this product is of gel meets cream. The shampoo is a little towards the runny side and comes in a baby pink color.
Fragrance: The fragrance of this shampoo is extremely mild and I have to get a good sniff to actually feel it. It is sort of citrus meets floral smell which disappears after shampoo.
Having my hair coloured recently, I was in need for a color-protect shampoo. This was suggested by the hair style specialist who coloured my hair in Eleven-Seven Salon. Honestly I love getting my hair color but the after colour maintenance is a pain. However, I have used this shampoo with the hair masque and it works pretty well for my oily scalp and dry ends.
I also had major hair fall issues, which was worse during monsoons. But after using this shampoo I have noticed considerably less hair-fall. Hair tangles less and feels soft after shampoo. The shampoo cleans well and lathers well. I can go on and not shampoo for 2 days and my very oily scalp looks manageable after shampoo. It really fares well on colour maintenance part and my hair colour stayed as-is for more than 2 months.
Only thing is, if you have major frizz issues, this shampoo will not be able to tame it. I have stripped my hair colour to lighten it and have a more intense coverage of bronze Ombre color for my hair leaving ends of my hair is coloured. Hence, the ends of my hair tangles more and is prone to breakage; and L’Oreal shampoo does not help me much with that. But the masque helps retaining moisture, I will review it next.
As for now I am loving using this shampoo and masque combo. Less hair-fall equals more good-hair days.
