Hello hello! 

Have I got a little treat for you today?

A couple of years ago I was in Toni & Guy when I noticed a service they had on offer with the tagline: "Botox for Hair". How intriguing!

At the time though, my hair was actually in pretty good condition so it didn't really strike that much of a tone with me. I filed it away at the back of my mind just in case. Fast forward to May of this year and all the bleaching I'd been doing was starting to take its toll, I dived into the deep recesses of the mind and remembered that product:

L'Oreal Fiberceutic Treatment

I did a bit of research and found that retailing prices were quite varied, anywhere from £50 - £75 for the whole set. Naturally I headed for eBay where I managed to snap it up at auction for just £30. So what did I get for my money? 15 x 15ml bottles of Hair Filling Serum, 500ml of Restorative Hair Sealing Treatment for Fine Hair and a blunt, flat syringe.

L'Oreal's Fiberceutic was launched back in 2010 

This product is similar to the Keratin treatments that you can find, often an awful lot cheaper. There is one key difference though. Keratin Treatments merely sit on top of the hair as the molecules of the active ingredient are just too large to penetrate, whereas Fiberceutic has something called 'Intra-Cyclane' molecules. These molecules are smaller and have the ability to penetrate into hair, which enables it to temporarily fill in the gaps and bulk up the hair with long lasting results.

So if you have weak, distressed and/or battered hair from the harshness of heat appliances, colouring or bleaching, this product is aimed at you.

Just a little background on my hair: it's fine, weak but abundant and damaged from repeated bleaching. I bleached my ends last year for my Turquoise Ombre, then a couple of months back for my Indigo, then twice again for my all over Turquoise. So you can probably imagine the extensive damage that's been done! My hair lacks shine and softness & feels rough to touch. What I will say though is that my occasional Protein treatments by Aphogee are strengthening it. However the Aphogee can't restore the softness, sleekness and shine that I desire.

USAGE

 DSC_6570 

As this was a totally new product to me, I thought it best to follow the instruction provided to the letter. To be honest though, it isn't all that difficult to use.

To begin with, I shampooed my hair and towel dried it to the point where the hair was no longer soaking wet. I stuck the syringe into the Hair Filling Serum bottle, sucked it up and applied directly onto my roots, midlength and ends. Each little bottle contains three syringes full, which for my fine, mid-length hair is sufficient.

The serum itself is quite runny but at the same is also a little sticky, and it's surprisingly easy to spread all over the hair. Once applied, I massaged my scalp and hair to ensure even coverage.

The next step is to apply the Resotrative Hair Sealing Treatment which is practically a conditioner. I pumped out the conditioner, applied all over, popped on a shower cap and left it on for about 15 minutes. I was a little naughty and deviated from the instructions here, they said to leave on for just 5 minutes but the rebel within me thought the heat from the shower cap would help the treatment to penetrate the hair. Once the 15 minutes were up, I gave my hair a good rinse.

Easy!

RESULTS

Immediately after rinsing, my hair didn't feel any different at all. That changed though when I began to blowdry. I was 'blown' away by the smoothnes of my hair. It felt so much softer and was super glossy! What with all the recent bleaching, it was unusual for my hair to feel in such good condition. What struck me most was the drastic reduction in hair breakage during the drying process, usually I get loads but not this time!

Once I'd finished drying my hair looked bulky, each strand looked like it was plumped up. Overall my hair felt bouncy and silky, it also had the "Swish" effect! It just looked healthy. And it wasn't just me that noticed this, a couple of friends asked if I'd had my hair done at the salon as it looked super sleek and glossy!

Swisshing!

L'Oreal claims that each treatment lasts up to 10 washes and in order to prolong the results, it's best to use the Restorative Sealing Treatment in between full treatments. For me, this only lasted 5-6 washes even with the Restorative Sealing Treatment. I can't be too critical of L'Oreal though, I do have incredibly porous hair!

Would I recommend this? 
   
Without a shadow of a doubt, I would absolutely recommend this. If bought at full price it can be a touch expensive, however if you are at your wits end with hair breakage and you yearn for smoother, shinier hair again this could be right up your street. For fine-haired ladies that long for bulky, plumped up, bouncy hair Fiberceutic really does live up to it's claim:

"Botox for Hair."

    Success :) loves it. I'm forever having to use deep treatments to even now repair the previous damage done to my hair but I do find deep penetrating (ha!) hair products are a must.

  6. Guess what?! I went to my salon for a treatment and I saw the packaging of the stuff they used and it was Aphogee!!! My hair was like, 100% nicer!!! But I just washed it, and it doesn't feel as nice. Maybe I should get some of this stuff. I'm not too keen on the syringe?! What the heck?!

    1. I reckon you'll need to carry on using Aphogee every 6 weeks in order to build up the strength of your hair.

      But yes! This is perfect to use in between the Aphogee Protein Treatment :) The syringe does help as the formula of the serum is quite sticky.

  9. i'd never even heard of this until really recently when i read a blog post about it, and now your post as well! my hair isn't super damaged because i don't bleach it or dye it too often but it is really long and the ends to get pretty brittle. it really looks like something worth investing in now that i've read your review!

  20. thanks so much for this review, it sold the product to me. I tried it out as soon as it arrived and OMG I am in love...my hair is bouncy, silky, shiny and has swish, it has never had swish. My hair is chemically treated and has shoulder length extensions so I have roots and deep conditioning treatment done monthly, so in between it can look rough......this is now all in the past, thanks so much

  21. Hi,

    I'm wondering if you know of any place other than eBay where I could buy this product?

  22. Thank you for sharing this review, I have been looking for some hair treatment beside Keratin. I had the Botox treatment for face from http://www.cosmedocs.com/treatments/botox-treatment.php which helped to remove my facial wrinkles, I hope this treatment works in similar manner for the hair giving them the strength.

  23. So I was looking for info on Olaplex and you mentioned this product in that post. I think this might work better on my hair than Olaplex. I do have previously permed ends and grey/white top fine hair. I found a great deal on this L'Oreal product on Amazon so when it gets here, I will try it immediately!! I like the Olaplex No. 3 but it is a bit heavy on my fine hair. Thanks for doing these reviews because they help those of out here in the Boonies!
