Shoppers Say This $7 Hair 'Plumping' Serum Transforms Damaged, Dry Strands Overnight

I love how my long, brunette hair looks with highlights — when it’s taken care of, that is. After a dry, cold season, or too many days spent in the pool during the summer, it quickly loses its luster and feels (and looks) like a stack of hay attached to my head. With any kind of color treatment, it’s so important to nourish and moisturize your strands, otherwise they dry out and break easily. Luckily, there are an infinite amount of good drugstore options out there that bring life back to hair, instantly.

Formulated with L’Oreal’s proprietary 2 percent Hyaluronic Care Complex, the formula is designed to fix hair follicles from the inside out, so you’ll be able to reap the benefits long after you’ve wash out the treatment. And it’s lightweight enough to be used on a daily basis — after shampooing and conditioning hair, evenly distribute the spray to your whole head of hair (it’s recommended to focus on ends and stay away from roots to avoid an oily scalp). The Elvive plumping serum is perfect for damaged, dry hair (and is safe on color-treated strands).

One shopper says, “This really does what it says it does! It breathes a bit of life back into dry feeling and damaged hair! And it is very light weight and leaves almost no film or gross greasy after product leave in feeling that some do.”

Another says the formula is good that it even brought back form to damaged curls: “I used this on my hair and my grandaughte’s hair. This product not only smells great but it tames our dry hair into something that is soft and manageable. The biggest plus is it brings back the curls. Recommended!”

One customer states that this stuff “works like a high end product,” and writes, “This product is amazing! It really does plump and moisturize just like it says it will. I can’t believe how soft shiny and frizz free my hair is.”

A haircare product that’s effective, feels luxe, and is under $10? We love to see it.
