I’m not proud of it, but it’s true: I am a hair care snob. Although I often try to open up to drugstore products, so many have failed me that I’ve just come to terms with my snotty status. But, don’t cry for me and my $30 shampoo receipts. Because today I bring you a contender that makes both my hair and wallet happy – it’s L’Oreal Triple Resist.

Triple Resist is just one of 5 collections in L’Oreal’s Advanced Haircare lineup. A lineup that had five years of research, holds eight US patents and was tested on 5,000 women; resulting in what they call their “most effective and transforming line ever.” As if that’s not reason enough to be excited for the line, my snobby side doesn’t forget that this is a French company we’re talking about, after all!
The task of the Triple Resist collection is to reduce hair fall-out due to breakage. The main ingredient is concentrated arginine (an amino acid) which attaches to weakened fibers to enhance and protect hair from root to tip. L’Oreal claims when all three products are used together it will leave hair up to 3X stronger. So what are those three products?
The Triple Resist Reinforcing Shampoo and Conditioner are the first two steps towards stronger hair. They’ve got a delightful smell that’s neither too fruity or too floral. Before I even used them they received giant bonus points from me for having different shaped bottle with their dispensers on opposite ends. Such a plus for my sleepy, dazed-in-the-shower self!
I noticed immediately too that they both have a really nice consistency and feel especially silky while I’m using them. I chalk that up to silicones being pretty high on the ingredient list (Dimethicone is the 3rd ingredient in the shampoo, Amodimethicone is the 4th in the conditioner). My hair works well with ‘cones, so I’m pleased.
That silky feeling carries over to when it’s dry. But not without first applying the Triple Resist Ultimate Strength Solution. I expected more of a detangler with this. But one squirt of that applicator and I knew this stuff means business.
Rather than a fine, wimpy spray, this shoots a mighty direct stream to your roots, which you then massage gently with fingers to stimulate micro-circulation (Note to self: do this more often – it feels good!) The Ultimate Strength Solution has the highest level of arginine of the three products. Breakage-prone hair doesn’t stand a chance!
I’ve only been using this for a couple of weeks so I can’t attest to any long term effects. But I can tell you this:
• My hair does feel a bit thicker.
• I don’t seem to have quite as many hairs in my brush.
Combine this with it’s pleasant smell and silky feel, and you know what? I just found some drugstore haircare that I really like! We may have to redefine Hair Care Snob…
