L'Oréal Paris Smooth Intense Ultimate Straight

L'Oréal Paris Smooth Intense Ultimate Straight

**I received these products from Influenster for testing purposes

It's been ages since I've washed my hair with anything other than the OGX Thick & Full Biotin and Collagen Shampoo, but a switch every once in a while is always in order. L'Oréal's gorgeous rose gold packaging arrived at my doorstep at the perfect time. Although my hair is naturally straight, I wanted to see just how smooth and intense it could get with the Ultimate Straight Line.

Right off the bat I'll tell you that you don't need as many products as the line provides you. I'm always in favor of the less is more mentality when it comes to hair and too many products can really weigh you down. Yet beyond the number of products the line makes you feel like you need, this collection is amazing. They smell amazing, but I can't quite put my finger on exactly what the scent is. Grapefruit? Candy? It's delicious either way and the shampoo builds up into a nice lather.

I also really enjoyed the Straight Perfecting Balm. It worked more as a heat protectant for me than anything else, but my hair felt and looked shinier and smoother after use. No stray hairs flying all over the place like usual.

My hair felt clean after usage (always a good sign), but a little too flat for my liking. It's a hard balance to create a straightening product, that also still gives you volume and body. This range just couldn't do that for me. I find that volumizing shampoo work a lot better on my hair type than ones that boast about straight hair. I'm sure if your hair isn't as straight as mine this would be a great line to try, but for us straight hair girls it leaves me wanting more volume and grit.

It's definitely an affordable range to check out if you're in the market for some straightening gems, but straight hair girls should stay away in favor of volume and texture.
