Rethinking Drugstore Hair Systems: L'Oreal Paris Vive Nutri Gloss Shampoo/Conditioner

I was a bit skeptical when I first tried L'Oreal Paris Vive Nutri Gloss Shampoo and Conditioner, as I've gotten used to my Paul Mitchell Super Skinny line. However, I have been using this for two weeks, and I am very, very impressed! Makes my hair super soft, shiny, and helps with the frizz factor that I am forever fighting. While it's supposed to be for medium to long damaged hair that is wavy or curly, I would think even short coarse hair will benefit from this system. It won't weigh your hair down, and it won't leave a build up that is hard to get off.

Seriously, my only complaint is that the conditioner bottle won't sit upside down in my shower, and what kind of lame complaint is that? But I like to not have to shake it up and down and fight to get product out - I like everything to be easy and handed to me on a silver platter. That's just how I roll.

But this line has made me seriously rethink how I have traditionally approached drugstore shampoos: I obviously didn't give them enough credit. My stylist will be crushed that I'm not getting my supply from him anymore!
