L’Oréal Extraordinary Curl Nourishment Shampoo review

The first of its kind from L’Oréal, the Elvive Extraordinary Curl Nourishment collection has been specially formulated for drug afro/curly hair. The collection has a shampoo, rinse out conditioner and hair mask. I was gifted the shampoo and conditioner some time ago (about 2 years smh) and I am only getting around to using them. This post will be a full review on the Curl Nourishment Shampoo which I have been using for the past 2 months.

The Curl Nourishment shampoo has been formulated with alma oil and 6 other oils and promises to provide supreme nourishment, vibrant shine and defined curls


I have been using this shampoo for the last 2 months or so for wash days. It is a thick creamy formula which smells amazing.

I usually do two rinses with the Curl Nourishment shampoo (and all other shampoos tbh) the first rinse is on dry hair and focus on my scalp, I add some water to help me massage and move the product around, then I rinse out, for the second rinse I had a bit more product and also focus on the scalp and use the suds to wash the hair and detangle. This shampoo produces a lot of suds which helps me to finger detangle the hair easily. The shampoo lathers really easily, even on the first rinse and leaves my hair and scalp very clean. My hair feels very soft afterwards, almost like I have conditioned it.



This is a very good shampoo for my 4c hair and I am in love with it. Its smells amazing and you don’t need a lot of product to clean the hair. I have had my hair out for the last months and there has been more on a few times I would go into wash day with very dry brittle hair, this shampoo not only helps to clean my hair but it also leaves it feeling conditioned. I really like the fact that I can easily finger detangle with this product. Overall my hair feels very soft, clean. It doesn’t define my curls but then again I have 4c natural hair, do I see my coils pattern, yes but its nothing I haven’t seen before after using a good shampoo.

I would recommend this shampoo for 4c natural hair. It has SLS in it so if you are trying to avoid sulfates in your shampoo then you may want to steer clear of this. I do not find this shampoo drying at all in fact it’s quite conditioning due to the oils in it.

However, if you want a sulfate free shampoo, this won’t be for you.

L’Oréal Elvive Extraordinary Curl Nourishment Shampoo is £ 4.99 on Fragrance Direct. For some reason, I can’t find this on Boots/Superdrug online but you can get it in stores
