The L’oreal Professional Age Densiforce Omega 6 Density Enhancing Shampoo was given to me by my hair stylist, Cindy of Hair Sense Gallery, sometime last year.
I highly recommend Hair Sense Gallery. It’s a simply furnished (one might even say spartan) hair salon at Far East Plaza and Cindy’s the owner. The shampooing is thorough with a decent head massage, Cindy takes the time to discuss with you the hairstyle that you’d like and suit your hair and never, ever pushes any treatments nor upsells, which most places do. Even when I had my ultra long back length hair, she didn’t think a treatment was necessary. Such refreshing and non-pushy service in Singapore is a rarity these days, in my opinion. Long and short, she cuts them all with panache.
Now back to the shampoo.
The Professional range is often used in many hair salons in Singapore and sold at a premium. As I have fine hair that can look limp in Singapore’s humidity, this is certainly something that I do need.
The Omega 6 formula promises more body to your hair. However, it contains SLS, parabens and other synthetic chemicals which natural skincare/haircare/bodycare lovers would eschew.
There’s also a distinctive perfume to it, that smells very “salon-like”. AKA slightly synthetic. As I only use this de vez en cuando, it doesn’t perturb me much. My hair also enjoys the occasional change.
It’s transparent and foams up a lot with a small quantity, so no need to use too much. Easy to rinse out.
Does it give me the much needed body to my hair? Yes indeed. I’m currently spotting a chin length bob with longer layers at the front, thus, when my hair’s limp, it shows more easily than when I had almost waist length hair. This does make a difference to the other non-SLS/no paraben shampoos that I use. It’s a moisturising formula and I don’t need additional conditioner after for my current length.
This 250 ml will last me for quite sometime, since I rotate my shampoos (currently 4 of them!) on whim. I would purchase this again when I run out, for special days or events when I need my hair to look extra good.
