The L’Oréal Professionnel Absolut Repair Shampoo and Conditioner Are Game Changers for My Pastel Pink Hair

Here’s how washing with the L’Oréal Professionnel Absolut Repair system hydrated and resurfaced one editor’s color-processed hair.

Back in January, I dyed my hair a light pastel pink color. To achieve the cotton candy hair of my dreams, I went to a salon where my hairstylist bleached my mane and added color from root to tip. It’s no secret that dyeing your hair a fantasy color can damage and dry out your strands, so it’s not a change to be made lightly. My colorist asked me numerous times if I was sure I wanted to undergo such a big hair transformation, but I knew I was ready to say goodbye to my virgin strands and hello to a bright pink mane. 

Prior to my current hair color, my hair was generally soft and hydrated. However, now because of the damage from the bleach, it’s a bit drier. I knew that to keep my hair and color looking and feeling its best, I would have to make some major changes to my hair care routine. In addition to making frequent trips to the hair salon, I knew I’d need to rely on a high-quality shampoo and conditioner set.

After being given the L’Oréal Professionnel Absolut Repair Shampoo and L’Oréal Professionnel Absolut Repair Conditioner to review, they’ve become my go-to duo. Read on to find out how the L’Oréal Professionnel Absolut Repair became a game-changer for my colored strands.

Who is the L’Oréal Professionnel Absolut Repair Instant Resurfacing Hydrating range good for?

The L’Oréal Professionnel Absolut Repair Instant Resurfacing Hydrating range is particularly good for those with sensitized hair. Sensitized hair refers to strands that aren’t considered damaged just yet, but are on their way. After bleaching and dyeing my hair, it’s safe to say that I have sensitized hair, so I could greatly benefit from the line. Additionally, if you have dry and dull hair, you can also benefit from the line with shinier and smoother strands.

How I Use L’Oréal Professionnel Absolut Repair Instant Resurfacing Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner In My Hair Routine

Ever since I dyed my hair, I wash and condition my hair three times a week in cold water to preserve the color. The L’Oréal Professionnel Absolut Repair Instant Resurfacing Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner have become an integral part of my hair routine. I put a quarter-sized amount of shampoo into my palm and lather it into my wet hair. After that, I rinse it out and repeat. This is done to first cleanse and then treat the hair. After rinsing out the shampoo, it’s time for conditioner. I use about a dime-sized amount and massage it into my hair using a comb to spread it evenly from root to tip. After two minutes, I rinse, and I’m all set. The whole process takes less than 10 minutes. 

Casey before L’Oréal Professionnel Absolut Repair

I loved how smooth both the shampoo and conditioner went onto my strands. After I got out of the shower, I noticed that my hair dried relatively quickly. Since I have a thick head of hair, it usually takes three to four hours to air dry, but it took just under two hours for it to dry with the L’Oréal Professionnel Absolut Repair Instant Resurfacing Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner. They left my strands feeling and looking softer, shinier and resurfaced, so I was very happy with the results. My only complaint is that the smell isn’t my favorite—but the benefits of this shampoo and conditioner duo are too good to give up.
