Starting a good haircare regime can be super confusing, especially when brands throw technical jargon around. It can also easily become an expensive exercise regardless of your budget if you buy products that don't work for you. So before making the dive, you'll want to hear from someone who's tried the product to give you an honest opinion if the product is really that good.

Keep scrolling to read my honest review of which L'Oreal Professional products are worth every cent and the one's not so much.
L'Oreal Professionel Serie Expert Inforcer Conditioner is formulated for fragile hair in need of strengthening and repair. Enriched with Biotin & B6 technology, well known for their strengthening properties, this conditioner will target breakage, split ends, will assist hair to become more resilient to breakage and is beneficial for those with long hair.
Since chemically straightening my hair 5 months ago, it has recently started to feel rough, texturised and I am also experiencing hair breakage. This is an inevitable side-effect from a chemical treatment and I was expecting for this to happen. So, well in advance I started researching for conditioners and treatments that can help keep my straightened locks smooth and healthy. I came across the L'Oreal Professionel Serie Expert B6 & Biotin Inforcer Conditioner, known for it's strengthening and anti-breakage properties, I had high hopes for what sounded like a miracle in a bottle.
Following the instructions, I used the L'Oreal Professionel Serie Expert B6 & Biotin Conditioner in place of my regular conditioner for a few weeks. The texture is smooth, not too runny or thick. I liberally coated my strands from root to tips with the conditioner, before securing it in a bun for a few minutes.
While rinsing my hair with cold water, I could feel my hair was soft. But as soon as I got out of the shower my ends didn't feel as soft and silky as it did a couple minutes ago. This raised flags immediately but I wasn't going to give up on the conditioner just yet. I detangled my hair and left it to air dry with no serums.
The result? After using the conditioner for a few weeks, my hair was smooth, but it didn't feel as soft or as shiny as my hair usually is with my regular conditioner. It does the job in terms of detangling and smoothing hair, but I didn't feel the repairing or strengthening effects.
I didn't want to give up on the L'Oreal Professional Serie Expert B6 & Biotin range just yet, so I decided to give the masque a go. Just like the conditioner, the Serie Expert B6 & Biotin Masque is vitamin enriched and is designed to target breakage and split-ends, resulting in stronger, shinier and more conditioned hair.
Once again, following the instructions I used the L'Oreal Professionel Serie Expert B6 & Biotin Inforcer Masque in place of my regular conditioner for a few weeks. The texture is thick and smooth, and a little goes a long way. I applied the masque from my roots to tips, before securing it in a bun for 5 minutes.
The product easily rinses out with cold water and immediately I could feel the difference in the texture of my hair. My hair felt soft and smooth between my fingers as I washed the product out. After detangling my hair, I let it air dry with no serums.
The result? I honestly had low expectations for this product but I was pleasantly surprised. After using the masque for a few weeks, my hair felt moisturised, stronger and shinier than before. This masque since, has become a staple in my haircare routine.
