L’Oreal Elvive Fibrology Thickening Shampoo & Conditioner

L'Oreal Elvive Fibrology Thickening Shampoo & Conditioner review


I naturally have fine and thin hair and would do anything to have thicker hair without the use of hair extensions. After reading the reviews on this on the blogs, Boots website, everywhere, I wanted to give it a try. I did have high hopes for this but now I wish I didn’t.

It is recommended that these be used together to get the best results. The shampoo lathered up lovely and cleaned my hair well. The conditioner was thick but it did leave the hair feeling soft and smooth afterwards. It’s not the best conditioner out there but it’s good enough. Both are a creamy white consistency with a nice floral scent. I’ve been testing it for a few months now and didn’t find that it made a difference to my hair. I couldn’t feel or see a difference. No poof, no fuller, thicker hair. Insert sad smiley emoji here. I want to try their hair serum just out of curiosity.

I would carry on using them until they’re empty but I unfortunately wouldn’t repurchase it.

Have you tried any good hair thickening products?

    A shame they didn't work for you, always disappointing when a product doesn't have the results you're after.

    Oh that is such a shame! I don't try thickening products! I have such thick hair I could use thinning stuff!! I can stick a comb in and it just sits there….

    I've tried these shampoos and I do like them but I don't have thin hair so I didn't need it to work for me. It's a shame that it didn't work too well for you x

    Well it was worth a shot. I wish I could thicken up my hair too.

    I find the L'oreal Elvive hair products are so stuffed full of silicones that they might give you an immediate, temporary effect of some sleekness & fullness, but it won't keep..

    I've converted to HASK products for sleekness & absolutely love Bumble & Bumble for volumising products!

    I use these occasionally but you have to use it with the spray to even notice any sort of oomph but even then it doesn't last xx

    Oh what a shame it didn't work well for you :(. I have to admit I'm not sure I've ever seen a thickening shampoo that actually does what it says. x

    Is such a shame when a shampoo and conditioner doesn't deliver on promise, have you tried any of the Aussie thickening products? After I had my daughter my hair thickness dramatically reduced so until it repaired itself I used Aussie products and it did wonders for my limp lack lustre locks!!

    It's a shame that they didn't work well, I find that natural shampoos without sulfates etc are the best!

    I've never seen these before, sorry they didn't have the effect you wanted.

    It's such a shame this didn't work for you, I've seen really good write ups for it and some even calling it their HG hair product. I have thick hair already so I'm so sorry I don't have any good recommendations for you, but I really hope you find your HG product too! X

    I tried this shampoo and had the same experience as you – I think it was actually too heavy for my hair, definitely didn't make it look any thicker

    I find that most shampoos have no effect on my hair – it's the same whatever kind I use. Shame really!
