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.

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.

Perfect serum for daily use

PROS

refreshing fragrance

CONS

Too watery


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.

Very satisfying
4.6/5

PROS

Adds shine

Travel-friendly packaging

Controls frizz

Non-sticky

Mild fragrance

Detangles hair

Pocket-friendly

Can be used both on damp and dry hair

CONS

Does not manage flyaways


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.

Only detangles hair
3.2/5

PROS

Affordable

Sturdy packaging

Detangles hair

CONS

Does not control frizz


My hair is very very dry, so the nourishment this L'Oreal Paris Total Repair 5 Serum provides isn’t enough. Because of that, it does not control my frizz at all. But I still use it because it works so well in detangling my hair after hair wash. If not for anything, I will give a big thumbs up for detangling.

Disappointing
1.8/5

PROS

Affordable

Can be used any time of the day

CONS

Effects do not last long

Not a long-term remedy


My hair is now so severely damaged that even with conditioner, my hair still feels rubbery. So, I started using L'Oreal Paris Total Repair 5 Serum. Quite honestly, the effects are not long lasting. It does control the frizz initially, but after a while, it comes back. It gives shine and smoothness on the time of application. But after I head out, it does not even last for an hour. The five repair promise is failing in my case. I think going bald and letting my hair regrow is the only option left for me now!

Nothing can beat this serum
4.7/5

PROS

Non-greasy

Controls frizz

None

Makes hair soft and shiny

Paraben-free

Does not weigh your hair down

CONS

None


I have used many serums, but no matter what I try, I always end up with L'Oreal Paris Total Repair 5 Serum. For me, nothing beats this serum. The results of this serum are very satisfying. I love this serum because it does not weigh down my hair, no hair wash is required the next day after I use this serum. My hair feels so soft and shines so well, and somehow, it has helped in reducing my hair fall. For me, it is worth more than it is priced!
