L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil Coconut Hair Mask

Here’s what our SUPERcrew had to say about this deeply nourishing hair treatment

The product

Coconut oil. It’s definitely had its time in the spotlight over the last few years and by the looks of things, it isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. And there are some darn good reasons why. Besides its benefits for your skin, coconut oil is also known for its hair-loving attributes, such as deeply nourishing hair and leaving it more manageable.

L’Oréal Paris has bottled these benefits into its Elvive Extraordinary Oil Coconut Hair Mask and created a luxe-feeling mask that intensely hydrates hair, without weighing it down. The mask conditions, protects and softens hair and won’t leave your strands feeling oily – although it will infuse them with a delicious coconutty scent!

Our panel of SUPERcrew testers put this product to the test.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil Coconut Hair Mask to our SUPERcrew, a panel of 50 women who are the most prolific reviewers on our site (find out what it takes to become a SUPERcrew member here).

The lowdown

Here’s what the SUPERcrew loved about the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil Coconut Hair Mask:

How hydrating the mask was: Our reviewers loved how nourished and soft their hair felt after using this mask. The panel also commented on how smooth and shiny it left their hair.

The multipurpose nature of the mask: The SUPERcrew liked that the product could be used not just as a mask but also as a leave-in treatment to detangle and nourish hair before styling.

How enjoyable the mask was to use: Reviewers commented on how luxurious the mask felt to use and were surprised that it didn’t come with a high-end price tag. They also loved the coconut fragrance, with many saying it reminded them of summer or a tropical holiday.

The verdict


“I have damaged hair from bleach and styling. My hair can be frizzy and dry but with oily roots, [so] I love a good conditioning treatment that doesn’t leave my hair a greasy mess. This product worked magic on my hair and left it smooth and manageable and completely frizz-free. The scent is amazing; it smells delicious without being sickly sweet or over-powering. I can’t believe the affordability of the price.”

“I have very long and straight (Asian) hair that has been colour treated, so it can feel quite dry... After leaving it on for 5 minutes, I was amazed to see that my tangles were combing out completely effortlessly, and that my hair felt like silk. However, the real results came after my hair dried and it was STILL silky smooth, soft and glossy like fresh salon hair… I can't believe the price tag. I would even pay a high-end price tag for this little gem. Unbelieveable results at an unbeatable price.”

“I have found my holy grail hair hydrator in this tub of creamy white goodness. It smells absolutely amazing. On many occasions I catch a whiff throughout the day and think, ‘My perfume is fantastic!’ before remembering that it's my hair. I've tried it as a mask, a leave-in conditioning treatment and a styling aid and it's fantastic however you use it! It doesn't look at all greasy, smells glorious and keeps my generally flyaway hair from getting tangled in the breeze. My love for this treatment runs deep.”
