Today I am reviewing the Orofluido original range of products, which encompasses the shampoo, the conditioner, the mask and the oil.
I had been loving using oils for a while before the Orofluido one entered my radar. I had been using drugstore ones or pure argan oil (too rich, let me tell you now) before, so I felt like giving it a try.
Sucker that I am, I fell for a mask and oil set and bought as well the shampoo and conditioner in XXL size. Why not, right?
Perhaps my mistake was giving it a sniff at the store. I love the scent of the range. To me it smells like oriental decadence, like vanilla and amber and spices and it makes me travel to a pampering session in a hammam. If I light up a Dyptique Amber candle before stepping into the shower, by the time I step out I am in olfactory heaven. Marvelous! However, my hair would not say the same.
Turns out that while I fell in love with the Orofluido Beauty Elixir, I didn’t feel anything special towards the Orofluido Conditioner and Orofluido Mask and I loathed the Orofluido Shampoo.
The Orofluido Beauty Elixir is a gorgeous thicker oil that contains argan, cyperus and linseed oils. According to the brand it has UVB and UVA filters, but what I love about it is how it leaves my hair shiny and smooth. It banishes frizzy hair, gives it shine and helps you brush it out. And lets not forget the fantastic scent that it leaves as well!
Tip a small amount of the product into the palm of your hands, rub both of them together to warm the oil and apply from mid to ends. Voila!
The Orofluido Conditioner and Orofluido Mask (not pictured) are alright products, as they are reasonably moisturising, but I confess that my opinion on them might be influenced by how much I hated the shampoo.
The Orofluido Shampoo was a nightmare. Yes, it had that delicious smell, but it left my hair dry, brittle and with little shine at all. Not even the Orofluido Beauty Elixir could help here. It was so bad that I used it only ever other time I had a shower, alternating it with another shampoo. In the end I gave up; that huge bottle is still half full and it is going directly to the dumpster.
What is my recommendation? Definitely try the Beauty Elixir, it is fantastic, you can skip the rest.
