Packaging: The L’Oreal Gold Quinoa Shampoo comes in a golden-coloured user-friendly bottle, which is very convenient to use. The label at the back includes all the necessary details, like product ingredients, how to use it, M.R.P, etc. It is a 300 ml bottle, which is also travel friendly. This is my first bottle and I’ve been using it for around 2 months now, so it’s safe to say that it can last you for a pretty good time.

Colour & Texture: The shampoo is pearl white-coloured, has a runny consistency, and blends easily on a wet scalp. The shampoo also consists of gold-coloured flakes with a subtle sheen which looks pretty fascinating.

Fragrance: It has a subtle fragrance, similar enough to give you the vibes of salon-washed hair and it lasts for a while even after drying the hair.

My Experience:

Having chemically treated hair, it’s really crucial for me to take care of my hair. While I was on the lookout for the right shampoo that keeps the unnecessary frizz away and retains my hair’s original smoothness, my hair stylist recommended this L’Oreal Professionnel Absolut Repair Gold Quinoa and Protein shampoo by the Serie Expert range, and since I started using it, there was no looking back. The shampoo lathers well and cleans off even the stubborn oils and dirt in just one wash.

I use the shampoo twice a week and I’ve noticed some amazing changes in my hair texture.

  • The hair texture has been softer than ever.
  • It leaves an amazing fragrance for the day.
  • The hair has been voluminous.
  • The frizz is managed to a great extent.

My natural hair is extensively frizzy, so this shampoo does its job perfectly and it is an awesome buy for people who spend a lot of time out in the open, or love styling their hair often.

Although, I would recommend using a hair mask or conditioner along with the L’oreal Shampoo, especially if you’ve got extra frizzy or curly hair.
