A Review of L'Oreal UltraSleek Shampoo Because It's Amazing



I don't know if sulfates in shampoos strip color and dry out your hair. But just in I've sampled several and all have lacked that delicious slip that means clean. Each companion conditioner was simply dreadful. Struggles to gently swipe a paddle brush through longer hair was a complete failure. The amount of MoroccanOil product needed to drag the brush through resulted in limp, oily hair. 

Skeptically buying yet another contender, L'Oreal's UltraSleek Shampoo and Conditioner, I expected more of the same. Much to my delight, this amazingly wonderful product has slip, a distinct lack of silicone but extreme shine and the brush glided through my wet tangle as if it were silk. Air drying or blow drying, my frizzy struggles ended and you need to try this immediately. All the rest of your shampoo and conditioner combinations will be insanely jealous and you will be so happy. Completely unlike the others in the L'oreal sulfate free line. Heaven ... and how about that under 8.00 price!! 

The wonderful blogger BritishBeautyBlogger wrote about the issues of so many products with Argan Oil ... totally a must read.

  1. Ooh, I'm going to try it. Most of the non-sulfates leave my very oil hair FILTHY.

  3. I've been allergic to any L'oreal shampoos I've tried before. I wonder if this is different. I'm always willing to try new stuff, especially if it works. I wonder when we'll see this product in the UK?

  9. I'll have to make a note of this. I'm not a huge fan of other L'Oreal hair products (or their partners in crime, Garnier). Thankfully I'm really happy with the brand I use at the moment, which is a pharma/botanical brand that leaves my hair feeling wonderful after. This would be a great (cheaper) alternative though for traveling.

  10. I've never cared for the L'oreal brand ... this was a fluke and so good that Kerastase and the very premium brands paled.

  11. Perfect! I always try to switch shampoo/conditioner brands, so this will be next on my list.

    Eternally yours,
    Stephanie

  12. Can't wait to try this - the texture of my hair just isn't what it used to be and I just haven't found a product that I love. Thanks for the recommendation!

  13. Oh I hope you like it too. Strangely, several people have asked whether having had a few Brazilians and then switching, sniff sniff, to MoroccanOil could have changed the texture of their hair. I asked the lovely Shannon and she said yes it does. This might, only might, help. And switching from MotoccanOil to the pure 100% argan oil that BritishBeautyBlogger.com talks about in the link in this post. I faithfully read everything she posts ... she knows everything!

  14. Do you know of anything that really works for thinning hair?

    I've even seen a derm, to no avail.

    Any advice...hair products, vitamins...anything!

    Thank you.

  15. Anonymous, who are you???

    Doctors give men a prescription for Proscar (?),which thickens up hair while keeping their prostrate down low. NOT for women. There's rogaine that you rub in and it helps, really. Drying your hair upside down helps. Extensions are not cheap and have to be replaced but may help. Thickening shampoos over time remove the flyaway thing and help. Blow drying is essential, I think. Shampooing less, just use conditioner. Barely brush, avoid things that stress the hair life hats, rough combing, harsh shampoos. Pantene is a good, best of breed modestly prices shampoo. Careful, find a specialist (not a hair implant) but a vanity dermatoligist.
