Review: L'Oréal's Ever Riche shampoo and conditioner

As anyone who knows me will be fully (and painfully... sorry) aware, my hair and I have a very bad relationship. This sad reality is due to the fact that my hair is exceptionally fine. So fine in fact that three different hairdressers have told me that I have the finest (and most tangley) hair that they've ever had the displeasure to comb (they didn't say it in quite those words...) This means that it dries out in a flash, gets horribly knotty looking if I don't brush it regularly and has next to no volume. You can imagine how excited I was therefore when I discovered a shampoo and conditioner that has turned all of this on it's head!

I started using L'Oréal's Ever Riche shampoo and conditioner about a month ago and, in a nutshell, I absolutely love it! The first point that I have to make is that this stuff actually smells like heaven. And I mean actually! It says that it's made of 'botanical oils, camelina and apricot seed', which doesn't really help describe the scent but it smells incredibly natural and so good that I want to try and eat it. Which I promise I won't do. 

In addition to it's heavenly scent, this product really has made my hair feel beautifully soft and much thicker than usual. A hairdresser once told me that L'Oréal is a great brand for haircare as they're owned by the same company that makes really good quality salon brand products, her thinking being that surely it's all the same technology that's used to create products that care for your hair instead of simply coating it in silicones and waxes. I obviously don't know how true this is, but the Ever Riche product certainly seems to prove her right. I have been using the one for dry, fine hair (although they have different types), which promises nourished and flowing hair that feels 'satin soft', and it's certainly delivered. My hair does indeed feel so much healthier, softer and is most definitely not as knotty as usual. It also feels really clean, and so, although I am no expert, I feel that the 'no sulphate' and 'no waxes' promise really does make a difference. The one thing that it doesn't do is add volume to my hair, but I've actually found that I haven't been as bothered about that as usual. Maybe becasue it looks healthier?

So, now I've finished getting more excited about shampoo and conditioner than I ever have in my life, I'd love to hear what your favourite haircare brands are? Do you use this product and if so, what do you think? Has it impressed you as much as it has me, or do you have another favourite that gets you as excited as I just have? If that's possible.
