5 stars out of 5

Been a while since you left the house for a hair cut? Tell me about it! There’s always L’Oreal Elvive Dream Lengths No Haircut Cream Leave In Conditioner for those of us experiencing split ends that can’t get out due to the pandemic.

My hair had literally bypassed my butt by the time I finally became brave enough to head to the hairdresser. Which wasn’t a bad experience at all by the very way! If you’d like to hear about it comment below and maybe I’ll do a post.

I keep it pretty long but it really needed to go after all that time being so long I was experience split ends and my hair simply wasn’t in the best shape due to all that weight. During that time there was one helpful tool! L’oreal Elvive Dream Lengths No Haircut Cream Leave In Conditioner! Cheap as chips, smells amazing, absorbs easily, not heavy, sticky, or tacky, and didn’t leave behind a tone of messy residue.

I’ve been using L’Oreal Elvive Dream Lengths No Haircut Cream Leave In Conditioner since mid-April when I noticed the back of my hair was beginning to look jagged and split. I got it off Target and had it shipped to me with some essentials I had ordered at the time.

I’ve used it since that time and will likely re-purchase it because I really like what it does for my hair. It contains a mix of castor oil, vitamins B3, and B5 and of course, silicone so if that’s something you’re avoiding this isn’t for you.

I started using it for split ends but I’m still using it because it detangles my hair and smooths it so nicely. It actually creates a really smoothing effect if you’re having issues with your hair splitting at the end and looking dry. If you can’t get to the hairdresser’s truly this is the next best thing as it’ll smooth those tired dead ends and make your hair look a lot better. It also detangles hair very easily. Apparently it also prevents heat damage but I don’t dry my hair so, I’m not sure if that works.

This is a lightweight cream that absorbs in a snap. It’s probably one of the lightest split end, de-tangling creams I’ve used. It absorbs in a snap, has a fresh light floral fragrance and it leaves my hair feeling lightly hydrated and conditioned. Best part? I never felt that it left major build up in my hair. I used it for an entire month and never did I feel like my hair was weight down with build up due to use.

Right now, with the pandemic, it’s a little hard to get to your daily hairdresser appointment! This cheap little treatment can go a long way keeping your hair looking smooth, tangle-free, and hydrated.

Loves it!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I haven’t had a haircut in over a year (basically laziness + COVID fears). Have you ever tried ColourWow Dream Coat? Makes my hair sooo smooth & silky when straightening.
    (BTW I just noticed Kat VonD is now sold at Ulta; didn’t that used to be a Sephora exclusive brand? Considering how it’s really fallen off the radar in the past few years, maybe this is the brand’s attempt to boost sales?)

    • Isabella Muse

      I totally understand <3! Nope! Is it good for uncolored hair?! Kat pulled out of the brand and the rebranded that's why it's starting to pop up at Ulta πŸ™‚ She's no longer exclusive with Sephora. The interesting thing is that I thought the brand was part of Sephora's house brand as in they manufactured it but guess not!

    • Donna Jensen

      Kristin, is your hair colored or damaged? I have read about this product before and wanted to try it but the 1 star reviews on Amazon scared me away. It would be one thing if they said the product didn’t perform as advertised but these people had their hair break off at the crown. I am wondering if it’s only OK to use on healthy, non colored hair.

      • Kristin

        Yes, my hair is colored and damaged from heat styling. I personally have had zero breakage; I wonder if some of these people on Amazon were unknowingly purchasing fake products? (I know fake Olaplex is everywhere!) I got mine at a beauty supply store, so I know it’s legit. It’s heat-activated, so you can feel it start to work as you begin blowdrying/flatironing. I’ve tried a lot of products over the years, and I have to say this was one of the few that really blew me away.

        • Donna Jensen

          Thank you for the response. I have to agree with you since a lot of bad reviews also mentioned that the consistency of the product seemed off. I may give it a go. I know what you mean about finding a product that actually seems different and notable; I recently found one that made my bleached dry hair feel almost TOO healthy, like too soft and silky to do anything but lie there flat and limp (but not the kind of limp that comes from a ton of weighing down product, a GOOD limp), and it was from an unexpected brand- Schwarzkopf. It’s the Ultimate Repair Express Repair Conditioner. The only thing better, in my experience is Virtue.

  • Fong Jennifer

    I love the L’Oréal Elvive volume line but it sounds like I need to add this cream! Going on 7 months with no haircut (they are not allowed here unless your stylist can cut outdoors).
    KVD is a Kendo brand. Kendo is a LVMH company and so is Sephora. They run parallel. KVD was exclusively at Sephora but I guess it’s not now.

    • Isabella Muse

      Oh my where are you located Fong!? Curious minds! Kendo is indeed an LVMH brand/Sephora too so I was quite surprised about KVD at Ulta! I assumed the products were manufactured by LVHM/Sephora but it appears maybe not!?

        Sephora and Kendo are based here in SF. Ole Henriksen is a Kendo brand and I think they are sold in Ulta too. It could have been a limited time exclusivity contract…?

        • Isabella Muse

          Oh god you guys are being hammered. Thinking of you! Been there, I totally know how it is. Stay safe. Ole is indeed a kendo brand! I dunno! I have doubts on the limited exclusivity only because it lasted so long! Sephora axes contracts really quickly with brands! Kat lasted a decade. I do wonder how exactly they went about this deal!

          • Jennifer

            Thank you sweetie! We are being really careful and taking it seriously, unfortunately others are not
            Sephora definitely cuts you off if your brand does not perform. It is also a big $ commitment to even be in Sephora stores so…
            I think you are right, they want to make more money. It’s rough out there right now sales are down cuz everyone has more than enough cosmetics. Skincare is number right now.

          • Isabella Muse

            No offense at all as I love California but a lot of people are NOT being safe from what I see on Ig. I see people out and about in stores (I’m shocked your stores didn’t close with your case numbers), on beaches, even traveling to Vegas. It’s really a dangerous situation! likewise for Texas! Our governor just shut down the entire state which really put us in hot water economy-wise but it’s a double edged sword as it did help flatten the curve. Self care/skincare is def number one right now for sure as it should be anyway as taking care of your skin means you’ll need to wear a heck of a lot less makeup ;-D You stay safe and well for me ok? I want you to be healthy and safe over there <3!

          • Jennifer

            No offense taken. We see and hear some people around us that think this is no big thing but one of our healthy friend caught it and he was nearly a statistic so we treat it with the utmost care. When we go out, which is as little as possible and I just do up the eyes. Lips are my fave but right now it’s a no-go cuz it makes a big mess of the mask Be safe and take care!!!!

          • Isabella Muse

            wow is he ok now? I know no one that got it thankfully but I see a good deal of people that treat this entire situation very carelessly here in NY. Now that things are open again and things are sort of becoming a bit normal it feels like everyone forgot what we went through for nearly 4 months. They better way up because our numbers went up a little smidge and that could turn into a big old mess fast if they don’t start taking it seriously. Sometimes I feel like I dreamed it up because people are acting a little TOO normal for my liking! Lips are def not a good idea right now sadly πŸ™ but hey, at least there is cool eye makeup around ;-D You too you too! Sending good vibes your way!

          • Jennifer

            So far, he says there don’t seem to be any residual effects so he is cautiously optimistic but still takes all the precautions when out in public.
            I know what you mean! I see acquaintances posting boating parties pix on the lake or hear our neighbors throwing dinner parties without social distancing as if everything was normal but our family members in the medical field are like I want to be healthy so I can wear lipstick in public sometime in the future so I

          • Isabella Muse

            Wow. Sending good vibes his way! COVID is a scary thing! It’s crazy! I know of at least two people I know of from CA who have traveled to vegas, arizona, and all the way to the east coast and they are out in public and doing things like visiting hotel pools, regular tourist stuff. What happened to 14 day quarantine when traveling!? Ditto! I’ll stick to not seeing anyone thanks so much!

          • Jennifer

            Getting on a plane scares me right now! I don’t know how people do it. Sheesh, I’m afraid of going to the dentist right now!!! I know they have their N95 and full face shields on while their right up in your face for an hour but…it’s just a scary time.
            Looking forward to the times when I can see and hug friends and family again! Meanwhile masks and hand washing!!! Oh, and if I’m allowed to say this: VOTE!…but mail it in

          • Isabella Muse

            I KNOW right?! And we are doing good over here so far but I’m still scared. I’m up for a cleaning at the end of this month and I also need to do my yearly mammogram in September and I’m really, really thinking hard about both of those things. It’s just scary. I can’t wait for that day to come πŸ™‚ YES VOTE! and yes do it by mail haha. But please for the love of god everyone vote! We need a miracle!

    I would like to see a post of your haircut experience during the pandemic. I’m in the high risk category so I’m going on 7 months without going to a hairdresser due to fear as there really isn’t any specific guidelines for hair salons in NYC and I don’t know if I can trust what they are or not doing. Thanks.

    • Donna Jensen

      I am not in NY (wish I was) but here in Minneapolis, they had shields up between the stations, everyone was required to wear a mask, they did a health screening (just questions, no actual testing), they made me a sign a waiver, they cleaned and sanitized every area/chair after I used it, and there were no magazines or complimentary drinks. I didn’t feel more or less safe than I did going to any other public location since Covid-19 happened.
