Hello Everyone!!! In today’s post I will review L’oreal Total Repair 5 Instant Smoothing and Nourishing Oil Serum. Finally the winter is here and it is the tough time for our hair. As we generally use hot water to wash our hair so it makes our hair rough and dry. As a result hot water takes away the natural shine from our hair making them unmanageable and frizzy. Therefore to overcome this problem it is always advisable to use a serum after you wash your hair. It works as a leave in conditioner. Moreover it makes our hair soft, silky, smooth, manageable and even control frizzy hair. Hence L’oreal Total Repair 5 Instant Smoothing and Nourishing Oil Serum is one of the products which I am using for many years.
It comes in a white plastic bottle with red flip cap on the top. The bottle is travel friendly with no leakage problem.

5 Problems 1 Solution Total Repair 5 Instant Smoothing and Nourishing Oil Serum is a daily leave-in treatment that nourishes and smoothens your hair from root to tip.

Damaged hair can lack the natural cement which keeps the hair strong and resilient. To ensure cohesion and strength, the L’Oreal Laboratories have created Ceramide-Cement technology to replicate the hair’s natural cement, targeting the 5 problems.
How to Use
For best results, use on towel dried, damp hair:
- Take a few drops of the serum onto the palms of your hand. The amount of serum depends on the length of your hair.
Rub hands together and distribute evenly along the lengths of your hair, paying particular attention to the ends.
- Can also be used on completely dry hair prior to combing for intense shine & smoothing. Do not rinse. Leave in.
My Experience with L’oreal Total Repair 5 Oil Serum
I have been using this serum from many years and my experience with this product is good. 40ml bottle lasts up to 2 months for my shoulder length hair. The serum is light oil based but when applied it is instantly absorbed by hair without leaving hair oily. It is quite watery in consistency due to which it spreads evenly on hair. Only a small amount is enough for my hair length. I generally use it on damp hair but it can even be used on dry hair. The results are same under both the cases. It makes my hair silky, smooth and manageable. It plays a great role in detangling my hair after wash.
Thought it doesn’t repair any kind of damage as claimed by the product. It even doesn’t control frizziness of chemically damaged hair. But it is good for detangling hair and making them soft and smooth. I will definitely recommend you to purchase this product as it is quite affordable in price so trying it out is a good option.
