L’Oreal Pure Resource Purifying Shampoo Review

how to fix greasy hair

L’Oreal Pure Resource Purifying Shampoo Review is designed for normal to oily hair types. This shampoo comes in a 1500ml/50 oz bottle. It’s a purifying shampoo that contains an anti-oxidant which is blended with vitamin E, purified water and an anti-hard agent to the leave hair looking healthy. The directions for this shampoo, are the usual “spread through hair evenly, then rinse thoroughly”.  The shampoo clears the hair of oil build up and restores radiance to give hair the long lasting shine.

The positives

First thing I noticed after opening the top of this shampoo is the glorious smell! It’s delicious. I used three pumps to get a good lather, which was more than enough for my shoulder length hair. After using for the first time, the results were noticeable instantly. It gave my hair that salon feeling. My hair felt amazing after a much needed refreshment – it was bright and shining again. For the first time in such a long time, I didn’t need to use my dry shampoo 6 hours later. It’s also great for coloured hair, this shampoo can be used without dulling the hair. I’ve never used a shampoo that cleans my hair so thoroughly yet is completely gentle. After using this shampoo, I can go up to 4 days without washing my hair. Which is quite incredible, considering before I needed to wash my hair every day without fail. My hair afterwards was lusciously soft. The size of the bottle is huge! My bottle did last me a couple of months. Could this shampoo be a game changer?


Thel'oriel2 negatives

One might argue the price of this L’Oreal Pure Resource Purifying Shampoo. The massive bottle more than makes up for the price. There are no negatives to me.

Final thoughts

This shampoo is without a doubt a game changer. I couldn’t be happier with the results I obtained with this rather large, stupendous product. The amount of compliments on how “glorious” my hair looked is worth the price alone. At last, I can leave my hair without washing for 4 days. This product is my life saver and will be my go-to shampoo for a very long time. I’ve spoken to a few hair experts and hairdressers recently, whom of which also recommend this shampoo. It’s my magic bottle. Congratulations L’Oreal, you own the market.

  1. This shampoo seems great but I have no idea where to buy it. It seems like a huge hassle to continue buying it online.

    • Sorry it took so long to get back to you Kristina, I know that at first it seems like a hassle to order online but on Amazon usually things are cheaper. Also, you can set thing to be orders on a subscription (you can tell Amazon to ship you one every 3 months). Last, on most orders over a certain amount shipping is either free or pretty cheap.

  2. Can I use this shampoo as I would my normal shampoo or is it one of those clarifying ones your only suppose to use once a month?

    • Hello Mattea,

      The point of this shampoo is to help remove build-up and oil. You can use it as much as you need. With that in mind though sometimes over shampooing is one of the problems. We recommend using this shampoo at most every 2-3 days and do not wash your hair at all on the in-between days but use a dry shampoo to help with the oil.
