Review: Let's me clarify one thing first: in Switzerland, the EverRiche line consists of 2 shampoos, 2 conditioners and a hair mask. On one hand, there are the Nourishing & Taming shampoo and conditioner (for thick, dry and "rebellious" hair) and on the other hand, the Nourishing & Flowing shampoo and conditioner (for dry and fine hair) that I tried. The nourishing intense mask can be used on both hair textures.
With that being said, let's dive into the review... I tried the Nourishing & Flowing shampoo and conditioner many times, first together and then with products from other brands (EverRiche shampoo followed by a conditioner from another brand, and vice versa). Both products are formulated without sulphates, and thus are said to be less harsh for our hair. Unfortunately, my strands were not impressed by this "new hair care system" from l'Oréal. The shampoo isn't bad, but my hair definitely feels drier than when I use my beloved Ultra Doux from Garnier. As for the conditioner, while it's a good detangler, it doesn't provide enough nourishment to counteract the dryness induced by the shampoo. Even when I used it after another shampoo, I didn't find the results to be that incredible.
Will I buy it again? Probably not. I was expecting more from hair products costing almost 10 CHF. Maybe I'll try (out of curiosity) the Nourishing & Taming line and the mask someday...
What about you ladies? Have you ever tried these products? How did they work for you?
