Most Helpful Positive Review Um, WOW
I bought this, and the corresponding conditioner, on a whim, and am so glad I did! I L O V E this stuff. I have naturally curly, naturally gray hair, which is by default naturally dry. I need a nourishing shampoo and thick, moisturizing conditioner, and this Extraordinary Oil fits the bill. On my first use of this shampoo, I wasn't sure I was gonna like it - it lathered well, but felt heavy, like rather than washing my hair of the styling products I'd used, was just coating it with a weird film. It doesn't have much of a slip. So that first time, I rinsed and repeated - and felt like my hair was cleaner after the second application. Before I conditioned (with the Extraordinary Oil conditioner, which I also HIGHLY recommend), I felt like the shampoo wasn't rinsing out - like when you shower with a water softener (which we don't have, which is another reason my hair stays dry). I finally figured out that my hair wasn't squeaky clean because this shampoo, while washing my hair, was also depositing oil. It felt weird and I didn't have high hopes. But after I conditioned, added my normal styling products, and (mostly) air dried my hair, I couldn't believe how soft and shiny and healthy it looked and felt. I L O V E the combo of this shampoo and conditioner and plan to use it every time I wash my hair (I have to use a clarifying shampoo a couple times a week to prevent product build-up yellowing my gray, but will follow that with this stuff). The only thing I don't like about this is the scent - it reminds me of an old lady's perfume, lol.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not that Moisturizing
I received the sample of both the shampoo and the conditioner complimentary of Influenster. I was really excited to try this since I have been dying my hair blonde for the last 10 years. My hair tends to hold on to color for a while but if I am not using a color treated conditioner then it begins to fade or turn gray/brassy.
I wanted to use the shampoo and conditioner three times before writing the review that way I would have a better understanding on how the product did over time with my hair.
I will now review what I thought about the conditioner.
The first thing that I noticed is the fragrance! In my opinion by far the best thing about this product! It's amazing. A lot of conditioners that are for color treated hair aren't as potent and don't seem to last once you get out of the shower. This fragrance does and lasts a couple of days. If you aren't into floral that smell a bit on the lavender side I would say stay away, but I absolutely loved it. So kudos on the smell.
Con: If you have a lot of hair, thick and long, you have to use a lot of product in order for you to get a good wash. I do not wash my hair everyday but if you are a person who does and has very thick long hair I could see you going through this rather quickly.
PRO TIP: With the conditioner make sure you brush your hair before going into the shower so it's easier to comb through the ends. I did not find the conditioner very good at separating snarls with just your fingers. I used A LOT of product in order to fully cover my ends and could see myself running out the conditioner way faster than using the shampoo.
ALSO: When you get out of the shower it wasn't easy to comb through either-very frustrating.
Pro: Leaves hair very shiny! I noticed after letting my hair air dry (I barely every use a hair dryer) and then curling there was a lot more shine that what I was used to! It also lightened my tresses slightly and brought my highlights out as well. Was very happy about that.
Con: For some reason it left the ends of my hair dry and again was not easy to comb through. Although since I was using this product and wanted to see how well it did without additional products I do tend to use on the regular a leave in conditioner. But I do think it left my hair dryer than normal.
Overall: This product is ok. I don't think I would go out and personally purchase this myself but I did enjoy trying it and will use the rest of it to see if using it for a longer period of time will actually bring better results.
Thank you Influenster and Loreal for letting me try this product complimentary. I really appreciate it.

I didn't really care for the smell of the shampoo after awhile and I didn't see it helping my hair.
Soft on the first day but greasy after
Erica from Pennsylvania
The bottom half of my hair has been a bleached ombre since March and I've been using L'Oréal purple shampoo to help keep the brassiness out, but I've been using it with a normal "color care" conditioner. I was at the store and thought I'd give a toning purple conditioner a try.
The day of washing with this conditioner, I was impressed; my hair was smooth and my split ends seemed less noticeable. My hair also smelled pretty good. However, the next day, I woke up and my hair was rather greasy compared to how it usually is the second day after washing. I typically wash my hair every three days, but my hair was so noticeably greasy that I had to start washing every other day, which I hate. I thought at first it was just my hair adjusting to a different conditioner, but it's been a good 3 weeks and I still wake up on day 2 after washing and find my hair the same way.
Overall, I guess it's toned my hair a little more than it was before, but it's definitely not worth how greasy it makes my hair. Unfortunately I am at a point where I don't even want to finish using the rest of this bottle, which is disappointing and a waste of money.

I have 4c hair and I used the shampoo and for the first time in along time, my hair did not tangle up.
Sensational Salon Quality Shampoo
DeanaM from Tx.
I am extremely happy with this product. My hair was very damaged and dry from being in the summer sun. I had been using another brand of shampoo and it caused an enormous amount of build-up chemicals on my hair which cause me to have oily roots. I used this in conjunction with the Elvie balm on my hair. My hair feels so much better and looks more lively.
Good so far

Update to my previous comment. I slept on my wet hair as I usually do. I did put in other products after shampoo & condish - I used a Pantene spray in leave in conditioner detangler, and a Pantene leave in styling cream. I have to say my hair does look and feel less frizzled, so I am happy about that. I would recommend so far. Will see after a longer term use.

I like this product a lot. I use this as my primary conditioner now due to the effectiveness on my colored hair! My hair is pretty dry if I wash my hair every other day and this does well with it. My hair is still blonde and isnt hard to tangle out afterwards.

kimberlyj60 from undisclosed
This isn't a pigmented purple conditioner. It is more lavender rather than purple. It is very affordable but you can purchase a better quality purple conditioner that will actually do something for your hair for just a little bit more. In a pinch, this would work but for longer-term use I would suggest purchasing a better and more pigmented product.

I bought this conditioner to use when I bleached my hair last summer. It did not work how I expected. My hair was left feeling dry and the blonde in my hair quickly turned to a brassy brown tone instead. I would not buy again. If I bleached my hair again I would buy a much nicer blonde shampoo from a salon.

It did a good job at moisturizing my hair but did not brighten it. It did not do a good job at giving me a lighter blond color at all and in my opinion was not violate enough to do so as it suggested

For a drug store conditioner, I'm impressed. I love the scent, and use it because it prevents brassiness on blonde hair and has an amazing scent. When my bf uses it in tandem with the shampoo I want to smell his hair all day long.

I often use this conditioner to help prevent brassy hair. It is very gentle for color treated tresses. A sulfate free choice is great for long hair to help prevent breakage. Would recommend.

I love this conditioner for my silver dyed hair! It keeps the silver toned and shiny. It also makes my hair really soft. It doesnt really keep the color from fading really well, but I wouldnt expect that from a normal purple conditioner.
Not the best blonde...
rachels224 from undisclosed
Not the best blonde toning conditioner out there. I only use this every couple weeks because I find it leaves my hair feeling chalky and I just want to wash it out with normal shampoo and conditioner. Better things on the market.
angelpup84 from Graham, KY
I gave up on my hair a long time ago. I was born with naturally curly, very thick, very dry, frizzy hair. I tried so many things and nothing helped...I'd end up with the unmanageable mess I started with...seemed like the only thing those shampoos or products did was make my hair smell fruity which i hate. I tried L'Oréal Paris elvive Extraordinary Oil shampoo and conditioner almost a year ago, mainly because of the AMAZING smell. But after the first use, I was and still am HOOKED. My once curly dry frizzy hair is so soft, manageable, and I cannot believe the difference in my hair. THANK YOU L'OREAL I love it

Its a really good shampoo. ill give it that, although I dont see it making my hair blonder or saving any of my color tbh. It does smell great and so i continue to use it but, im not sure i would recommend.
