I've been searching high and low for a shampoo and a conditioner that would give my hair a sleek and straight look without oiling it to the point of being greasy and flat and I think I've found the one in the L'Oreal Ever Sleek Smoothing & Moisture combo.
This shampoo and conditioner target frizzy and overworked hair (you can find hair type recommendations in the top right corner). Mine is thin and curly and when it's ironed flat it tends to look lifeless and even greasy. Not with this duo. It adds a substantial amount of volume to my hair which lasts throughout day two as well.
These two are sulphate free but the shampoo foams as if it was a regular shampoo. My hair definitely does need the conditioner to smooth out and detangle and the one that goes with the shampoo does its job really well. I'm going to explore the line further to see if other products are equally good or perhaps even better, but I'll bear this duo in mind and definitely repurchase.
Together with the shampoo and conditioner I got the Ever Sleek Smoothing Mist which promises to make my hair smooth while using hot tools and also protects it from heat of up to 180˚. It's an oil-based spray which is not entirely water-free, so you need to wait a couple of minutes till it evaporates otherwise this will bring more damage than protection to you hair if you flat iron it wet. For blow drying it really doesn't matter.
I think it's a nice spray, but I don't think it's a game changer for me. I didn't notice any spectacular styling results apart from some shine, which might also be attributed to my flat iron. I'll use this up, but won't repurchase.
Altogether these are excellent higher drugstore shelf products. Their main disadvantage for me is that the're unavailable here in Poland and I need to order them online, but I suppose they're worth the effort.
