L’Oreal Hair Expertise EverCreme Cleansing Conditioner

March 28, 2012

I don’t know why, but I can’t seem to resist the shiny foil labels of the L’Oreal Hair Expertise Ever series. So when I saw their new EverCreme cleansing conditioner, I had to try it.

The front of the label advertises itself as having No Harsh Salts and being Sulfate Free. I can’t help but wonder what it says about the state of commercial shampoo, when a bottle advertises itself mostly by what it does not contain inside.

Clearly, the intended audience is curly-hair nut jobs like me who want only to moisturize and nourish and otherwise pamper their locks. The crowd who invented the no shampoo movement on which this product piggybacks. Only, rather than just being conditioner, this product promises ¼ cleanser. Like an updated version of those disastrous shampoo-and-conditioner-in-one concoctions they sold way back when I was a kid. Remember those horrible things?

Ingredients: The cleanser is Sodium Cocoamphopropionate. It’s ingredient #3, so if that’s 1/4 of the product, then more than 1/4 is water.  The rest of the ingredients list looks pretty standard conditioner. And a very impressive conditioner too. No silicones, for starters. And plenty of natural oils. No taurates or sulfates jump out and yell boo.

The user experience: The pump is bloody awful. It takes about 10 pumps to get enough out for my hair. And the bottle size is tiny. Using only twice a week, I emptied the bottle in less than two months. Eight-point-three fluid ounces of conditioner? Hello! That’s less than half of what most conditioner bottles contain. Just sayin’.

Complaints done, I have to say, this is a freakin’ amazing conditioner. It left my hair silky and soft as a baby’s downy fluff. I love it. It smells great too. If only they gave you a little more in a bottle!

Verdict: Can’t say I won’t buy it again, but it is pretty pricy for 8 oz of conditioner. Still, for the luxurious feel, it might be worth indulging every now and again.

  1. Sometimes it’s worth it to invest in a great product. If it is divine, buy it!

  2. It looks like the packaging is done wonderfully but you are right to expect to have more of the product per bottle.
