I had never tried using hair serums in the past before my college days, as I thought they were fully made up of chemicals that actually damage the hair. After I started college, I noticed that my friend had beautiful shiny hair and when I asked her the material behind that, she said Hair serum! I was quite sceptical about it yet thought why not give it a shot. She recommended me to go for the L'Oreal brand since she uses it and I was quite amazed with how silky & glossy my hair looked. Unfortunately the results aren't very much long-lasting and when I'm out the door my hair screams dry & damaged again!

My hair is so damn unmanageable without this that I have to tie it every time. This L'Oreal Paris Total Repair 5 Serum controls my hair frizz and makes it fall beautifully. It even prevents my split ends and other hair damage from coming back.

This hair serum comes in a standard bottle with a flip open cap. It does not have a spray dispenser. The formula is clear liquid. The fragrance is very much mild. One needs only a small quantity to apply on waist-length hair. Post application it leaves the hair looking shiny, sleek and a lot more manageable.

This product really helped my split-ends and damaged hair when I had grown it out for very long. Every time I left it in my hair, my hair did not tangle and I could feel it was smoother. But this does not repair hair for good. Rather it makes the damaged hair feel smoother through the formula. But it will not actually repair your hair in the long run and make its quality better.

My hair was dry for a long time . But after using this product it was much better. I would recommend you to use this regularly even for non shampoo days because for dry hair you need to use it as much as possible. I used it as a straightning serum too.

It is a good product for the ones who have a frizzy hair problem. I am currently using it after shampoo. At times normally while going out on dry hair also. It helps in detangles hair which helps in reducing hair fall. Makes hair look good a, it is fragrance-free, nonsticky. Overall it's a good serum to use.

The Loreal Paris Total Repair Five (5) Serum is a very bad product. The quantity is very little for the cost. It is very heavy and thick texture so it makes hair look oily after use even if you put little much. It does help to detangle hair and makes it a bit soft and also removes frizz but it is all chemical and no natural healthy oil is there. It has to be used with the matching Shampoo and Conditioner but they are also very bad products with only chemicals. The serum does smell very good but I like natural oil ones better.

I have no good things to talk about this range ! Total repair turned out to be fancy ad with new name and claims that were as big as they can be .. but results for me were zilch other than a well smelling range it didn’t do anything . So is this serum.. very heavy in application. It’s as if gel based serum. Don’t like it even one bit !

From my experience, no L'oreal haircare or skincare product have ever suited me. They're products are somewhat reasonably priced but aren't good in quality at all. While this serum has pretty much the same analogy for me , I would still say that its not too bad and totally worth a try.

Loreal has a wide range of serums in market and i think this one is more chemical laden. It contains a strong smell. Packaging is poor. It controls frizz to some extent. Lightweight on hair and does not weigh down.

Hair serum is good for all types of hair and L’Oreal Paris Total Repair 5 Serum is suggested for frizzy, damaged and dry hair. It is a ceramide cement that repair the hair in 5 different ways restoring hair health. Health loses its originality due to severe weather conditions, dust and pollution, health issues etc. and becomes dry and unmanageable, resulting in breakage and hair loss. Use it after hair wash in towel dried hair. Massage in the roots to hair end in circular motions and leave it in the hair. You don’t require to rinse. It works on the hair roots till the hair ends, thereby, replenishing the damage and repairs. It acts as a protective shield on the hair protecting it from extremes. It is affordable and the packaging is similar to L’Oreal Paris other products. White plastic bottle with a flip cap of red color. The consistency is runny and transparent. It has a mild sweet fragrance. It gets well absorbed in the scalp and the hair. The price is pocket friendly so no gasping. I use it for my hair in monsoon and autumn when my hair goes haywire. I use it thrice a week and find my hair smooth. It sets the hair and adds a shine to it. It helps in detangling, controls frizziness and keeps my hair smooth and shiny giving required nourishment. I bottle is enough for me for one quarter if you don’t use it daily. My friend and sis have adopted L’Oreal Paris Total Repair 5 Serum in their styling products and are happy with the result. This serum can also be used for styling hair styles as it keeps hair in place. This is fair for short, medium n long hair and can well be used on colored or dyed hair. Give it a try and you will thank me.

Most of us only take care of our skin care routine and follow it religiously, but do we ever realise our hair needs a hair care routine just like our skin. At least I was very ignorant towards a proper hair care routine until I was advised by an expert to follow a hair care routine and its importance. I was blessed with a naturally straight and silky hair that needed least care, but with time and hormonal changes during pregnancy and post pregnancy and due to lack of sleep, my hair started to look dull. I faced hair fall, damaged hair exposure to pollution and dust was another reason to all these hair problems. I was advised by a hair expert to oil my hair at least once a week and use conditioner and most importantly a serum after wash to protect my hair from dust and pollution and give it that extra boost of nourishment. I did not want to go for an expensive one but a drug store brand and that when I got my hands on L’Oreal Paris total repair 5 serum. On using it for almost over two months now I am very happy I gave this a try. This serum is very lightweight and does not leaves my hair oily or greasy. Because I have silky hair I was looking for a formula that nourishes my hair strands but does not make my scalp oily. And this is just what I as looking for. It definitely adds a protective layer on my hair and my hair has started to appear more soft and shiny. This has significantly taken care of split ends and damaged hair. My hair looks healthier and I am happy with the results. Also I really like that the packaging is very easy and handy to carry during travel and this product is not heavy on my pocket.

My hair is wavy and after every hair-wash, they get tangled. But this serum worked so well for especially the tangled hair that I am regularly using it. The best way to use L’Oreal Paris Total Repair 5 Serum as per my personal use is-  After hair, wash towel dry your hair and wait until water stops to drip from the hair  Take ample quantity of the serum and rub on palms  Apply evenly on the strands of your hair  Allow settling for 2 minutes  Now comb your hair and appreciate zero tangle The texture is watery and transparent.It has a very fresh and distinctive fragrance which I found so attractive. It is non-sticky and non-greasy, it spreads quickly and gives the desired result within 2-3 minutes only. It also controls the frizz, though not for a long time but still at least for the day. It repairs intensely damaged hair. It helped me to improve the texture of my hair and added shine to my hair. As the name suggests it is “Repairing” serum, you can leave it in your hair and can use daily. It not only detangles hair but also it makes the hair strand smooth ad if some protein covering is there on the hair. Only a small quantity is enough for the desired effects.You can also use it as a styling product. Though the ingredients show chemicals I did not find any harm. It suits almost every skin and hair type. For dry hair, this product is a must to have. Now it has become a ritual for me to oil my hair leaving overnight, washing the next morning, applying conditioner and as an intensive repair treatment applying L’Oreal Paris Total Repair 5 Serum. You can also use it as a styling product for your hair for a light party look.

My hair changes with the weather and temperature. During winter, it is at its best state. But during summer? Polar opposite. To combat that, I got L'Oreal Paris Total Repair 5 Serum and have been using it for a month now.L'Oreal Paris Total Repair 5 Serum comes in an opaque pearly white plastic bottle with a red flip-open cap. The cap shuts securely, so there is no spillage of the product. It perfectly dispenses the correct amount of the serum. And it has a mild fragrance that lasts for about 2 hours.The serum is non-sticky, and it easily spreads on my hair. I used this hair serum both on damp and dry hair, and it works well in both ways. When I use this serum, it helps in detangling hair and reduces frizz to a certain extent. It does impart healthy shine without making my hair greasy as it claims.The frizz is controlled till the next wash. The only fault I can find about it is that It does not help flyaways in any way. Other than that, I think for a price it comes at, it is a very satisfying serum.
