Being a member of Influenster definitely has perks! Like getting full sized bottles of shampoo/conditioner sent right to do your door for FREE, in exchange for a review! I have always loved trying new products; I was the teenager signing up for free samples and passing them out to my friends.

As I’ve gotten older and had babies it has become more important to me that the products I try are made using less harsh chemicals. L’Oreal was shooting for that with the L’Oreal Cleansing Balm.
I have used this product for about a month on the whole family because I wanted to be able to give it an honest review based on a few different hair types/styles.
I do have dry and damaged hair, which is exactly what this product is designed for. My problem is that even though I have dry hair, it also tends to get oily pretty quickly. I found that while this helped with moisturizing and making my hair shiny, it also left me feeling like it gave me build-up. I didn’t actually have build-up, it just gave my hair a different texture than I was used to.
I kept using it, waiting it out, hoping that my hair would adjust to it, but it hasn’t fully happened yet. No worries though, this just means I’ll use it weekly, rather than daily, to help hydrate and nourish my hair. It is excellent at that!
For my youngest, she has curly and nearly unmanageable hair. This thing is a LIFE SAVER! It detangles and nourishes her curls so I can comb through them quickly without any “ouchies”. I will keep using it on her.
This works well for my oldest because she has such long thick hair, the detangling properties are perfect for her too, and the gentle cleansing is just what she needs.
My husband and son both of have short hair and aren’t overly observant. They like the smell of it, and think it works well. They both agreed that it is nice that this is an all-in-one rather than using two bottles. I noticed that their hair looks healthier since using this.
As a health conscious momma (or at least a wannabe) I love that this is Sulfate-Free, Silicone-Free, & Dye-Free. I will admit there are still some chemicals within this product that I wish they were able to leave out. Cutting those 3 things out though is a step in the right direction and I’ll still use it.
I rated it a 4 out of 5 stars on Amazon.
