L'Oreal Eversleek shampoo and conditioner review

I've been considering trying sulphate free shampoos for a while as I've heard that's it's much better for your hair and can be good weapon in the battle against the greasies.  In the past the choice of SLS free shampoos is quite limited, and many of the choices are particularly expensive, so I was very excited about the new range of sulphate free shampoos from L'Oreal.  



L'Oreal haven't just brought out one SLS free shampoo - there's a whole range for different hair types.  I went for the Eversleek version, which is to smooth and nourish hair while replacing moisture.  It might seem an odd choice to those of you who have heard my previous moans about greasy roots, but I have really dry and damaged mid-lengths and ends, so I usually alternate between products that threat these opposing issues.  

A fear I had about using this shampoo, was that it wouldn't lather up very well, as I'd heard that about sulphate-free shampoos before.  There was no issue of that sort with this, although I did noticed that on two day old Monday morning hair it was a a struggle to lather and I had to do a second wash, but I get that with most shampoos.

The conditioner is nicely moisturising but also not to heavy for my occasionally lank locks.  Plus both of the products smell really good.  I was worried my hair might be extra greasy after using these because they're moisturising products, but actually it felt fairly normal and lightweight.  It was still greasy on day two, but that's just what my hair does!

I really like these as a break from my usual anti-oily-roots routine and I think my hair has welcomed the change.  The squeezy tube bottles are really different too and quite easy to use when you're hanging your head upside-down, as you do.  I'm not sure if it'll be as easy to squeeze the last of the shampoo out, but I can always snip and scoop!

The shampoo and conditioner costs £5.99 each and the Eversleek and Everpure ranges are currently on offer at Boots - 2 for £9.

  1. It's the lack of lather that puts me off using sulphate free shampoos, there's something about the bubbles that makes it feel cleaner. These sound quite good for £6 each x

    1. Me too - I don't feel like I've washed my hair if I don't get bubbles, so I was really pleased this lather up like a 'normal' shampoo!

  2. I've got a little packet of these to try out, but I'm a bit worried. The only sulphate free shampoo I ever tried left my hair looking like it hadn't even been washed. xx

  4. Ahhh, I cannot stand washing my hair without lather, it just somehow feels wrong! I always feel like I can't get an idea of how well I've washed it. Glad to hear that it's not a factor with this shampoo, I'll have to give it a go!

    1. If you get greasies hun try the Redken scalp detox. I did a post on it here and it's the best I've found for keeping my hair cleaner for longer xx

  6. Hi there,

    I do not recommend this shampoo AT ALL! I bought it and 2 weeks later I had dandruff and itchy scalp! I never ever have dandruff normally! I checked on other sites, some other girls have the same problem and some even have spots around the forehead and the back!! disgusting... I had to throw the shampoo away... really bad!!
