The L'Oréal Paris Extraordinary Oil Sublime Sleek range targets the most common hair concern of dry and frizzy hair. The shampoo and conditioner are infused with rare French Amber Cedarwood Oil extracted using a tedious 6-step process to ensure high purity. Amber Cedarwood Oil is known to repair deep damages within your hair and helps to stimulate healthy hair growth for sleeker, smoother and silkier locks.

The L'Oréal Paris Extraordinary Oil Sublime Shine range is tailored for ladies with coloured and dull hair. The shampoo and conditioner are infused with Rose Oil extracted from French rose fields. The fresh roses are then dried within controlled temperature for a few days, before going through a 48-hour long maceration process. The result – precious French Rose Oil rich in antioxidants and vitamin C and E to fight oxidation against aggressors and to revitalise your tresses from within.

The L'Oréal Paris Extraordinary Oil Sublime Wave range targets damaged, coarse and permed hair. The shampoo and conditioner are infused with French White Truffle Complex, an ingredient prized for its restorative properties. It deeply nourishes and plumps up keratin to improve hair quality so that bounciness is restored, great especially for those with wavy locks. The Wave range is not only for permed hair, but also suitable for those with naturally wavy hair.

Pairing one of these ranges (according to your hair concerns) with a simple 3-step hair care routine is the key to transforming your hair in just one wash. 

The 3 simple steps and tips to achieving extraordinary hair 

#1 Use a shampoo free of nasties

Start off your hair care routine with the L'Oréal Paris Extraordinary Oil Sublime Shampoo that is cruelty-free and free of nasties such as silicone and parabens. It’s infused with 100% pure and natural French essential oils that not only smell good but will also help to improve your hair quality in one wash. 

It’s formulated with a Micro-purification Deep Cleansing Technology that removes oil, dirt and even PM2.5 pollutants. This leaves your hair clean and non-greasy till the next wash – perfect for Singapore’s humid weather.

Tip: You won't have to dispense too much product as the shampoo lathers up into a foamy consistency. Create a dense foam before massaging into your scalp to ensure an even distribution of product and more effective cleansing.

#2 Use a conditioner that feels like a hair mask

Next, use the L'Oréal Paris Extraordinary Oil Sublime Conditioner that has 10x nourishing power to deeply repair frizzy, dry or dull hair.

Its thick texture feels like a hair mask which means a little goes a long way. Compared to other conditioners that are watery and will slip off the hair easily, the L'Oréal Paris Extraordinary Oil Sublime Conditioner has a rich and smooth consistency that allows you to slowly work your way through your locks. It even comes with gold shimmers to amp up the luxe factor! 

Tip: Leave the conditioner on for a longer time twice a week to double it up as a hair mask. 

#3 Apply hair oil for the finishing touch

Here's the secret – hair oil is the one product that drastically improves how your hair looks so it’s an indispensable step!

Finish off this easy 3-step routine with the World's No. 1 best-selling L'Oréal Paris Extraordinary Oil Hair Oil.

There are so many ways you can incorporate hair oil into your daily routine: as a pre-shampoo nourishment, as a heat protector before blow drying or styling, as an overnight treatment to reduce friction between your hair and pillow, as a one-step styling product to instantly tame frizzes, or as a finishing touch to add a healthy shine to your hair.

Tip: Run a few drops through your wet hair after shampooing and conditioning, then let it air dry for intense nourishment that will keep your hair moisturised all day long.

We know it's hard to believe that such an easy hair care routine will significantly improve different types of hair conditions ranging from dull to dry. We decided to put this hair transformation routine and products to the test to see if they really live up to the fame!

Our review on the 3-step routine and L'Oréal Paris Extraordinary Oil Sublime Sleek, Shine & Wave products

L'Oréal Extraordinary Oil Sublime [Sleek]

My hair is subjected to high heat almost every day as I use a hair straightener to straighten my naturally wavy hair. This has damaged my hair and caused it to look frizzy rather than smooth after straightening.

In the before photo, you can see that the hair nearer to my scalp is sticking out in different directions and definitely did not look glossy at all. The ends of my hair were also dry and looked like grass. The photo was taken after I had brushed my hair. The brushing did not help to tame the frizziness at all and actually made them more obvious! 

For my 3-step hair transformation routine, I paired the L'Oreal Paris Extraordinary Oil Sleek range with the Gold Hair Oil. After using them, my hair felt dramatically smoother to the touch and less frizzy. Although I could still see some hair sticking out, the frizzes have reduced significantly and this was just after one wash! The ends of my hair also looked less like wilted grass.

I particularly enjoyed using the conditioner because of its thick formula and gold shimmers that made me feel like I was getting my hair pampered at a spa!

I also straightened my hair as I usually would and noticed that less hair broke off while doing so. My locks felt soft and smooth even after straightening using high heat, a stark difference compared to before I started using the Sleek range's shampoo and conditioner.

The finishing touch of applying hair oil was definitely the key to add a natural shine to my locks. 

The scent of the products is a tad on the sweet side but I appreciate how my hair still smells fresh after a whole day out.

My colleague, Angela, has dyed her hair countless times and loves being in the sun. As UV rays break down the chemical bonds in hair dyes, her coloured hair tends to fade very easily and quickly. Pair that with hair dyes that obviously make the hair brittle and dry, and you have a hair disaster right in front of your eyes. 

Before using the products, you can see that her hair looked unhealthy and her hair ends looked especially dull. 

After one wash using the L'Oréal Paris Extraordinary Oil Sublime Shine range, her hair colour looked brighter than before, but the biggest difference is how her hair looked and felt smoother, shinier and healthier. 

She would usually have to tug on her hair in the shower to detangle but because the L'Oréal Paris Extraordinary Oil Sublime Shine conditioner has a very creamy texture that doesn't slip off the hair easily, detangling was a much easier process. This also resulted in less hair fall! 

The Extraordinary Oil Rose hair oil further helped to detangle her hair and for the first time in a long time, she could easily run her fingers through her hair without knots and tangles.

My friend, Charmaine, has naturally wavy hair and used to get compliments for looking like she had her hair professionally permed. Unfortunately, her luscious wavy hair is no longer as healthy-looking as before after going through a few times of dyeing.

You can see that her curls were not defined and the ends of her dyed hair looked especially dry and damaged in the before photo. The top portion of her hair was also frizzy. The ends of her hair were sticking out in many directions and made her hairstyle look messy rather than voluminous, a stark difference from what you would expect from wavy or curly hair. 

After one wash using the L'Oréal Paris Extraordinary Oil Sublime Wave range, her hair looked a lot healthier and most importantly, her curls looked defined and bouncy, as if she had just gotten her hair done at a salon! 

There was a significant improvement in the dryness and frizziness, and her hair looked a lot glossier with a natural shine to it. 

Charmaine especially liked how luxurious the products smelled and felt that the scent helped her feel more relaxed. She also felt her hair become dramatically smoother after using just the shampoo and that made it easier for her to comb her fingers through her hair when she was applying the conditioner. 

She loved applying the Extraordinary Hair Oil Extra Rich on towel dried hair before blow drying as she realised this helped to prevent any frizz. She also applied the hair oil diligently every day on dry hair to give her curls that extra bounce and shine.

Our verdict? The L'Oreal Paris Extraordinary Oil series has indeed lived up to its claims of visibly improving hair quality in just one wash. We were pleasantly surprised at how well they worked and believe continuous usage will slowly transform our hair for the better.
