My Curly Girl: L'Oreal Paris Evercurl Hydracharge Cleansing Conditioner Review (before and after pics)

Updated on July 7, 2013

My Curly Girl

My daughter has super curly hair and so I've tried many many products on her little curls, whether it was hair detanglers, the perfect shampoos and conditioners for her curly hair, moisturizers, and other things. When she was smaller her hair would be so frizzy and it would get dried out, hard to comb out because it would get so tangled. After I trashed all of the hair detanglers I had bought for her and went with my own homemade hair detangler, I made a decision to start keeping record of all the products I try on her hair. I'm sure there are lots of curly kids, and curly women out there who want to know which products do what!. When I bring you a review on (especially) a hair product for curly hair, you can rest assured it's completely genuine, tried, and true. With that being said, I'd like to bring your attention to L'Oreal Paris Evercurl Hydracharge Cleansing Conditioner.

Crazy Tot Hair Before


Crazy Toddler Hair Before

So, the picture looks CRAZY right? Trust me, it doesn't feel as bad as it looks. This is my daughters hair about 3 days after the last washing, and just pulled out of a bun. When the weather is as hot as it's been here in Texas, I don't leave her hair down very often because it just seems to dry it out so much faster. In this picture, it's a mess, but it's not too bad, mostly around the edges she has a lot of frizzies and the ends are dry. It would be way worse if I didn't use my spray daily to keep her hair moisturized.

My Thoughts on L'Oreal EverCurl Hydracharge Cleansing Conditioner

Okay, now here are my thoughts on this product. First let me say that in case you didn't see above, this is 100% Sulfate FREE, very important for not only curly hair, but for childrens' hair as well. Curly hair dries out just fine on it's own without the help of sulfates.

Scent: When I first pumped some of this into my hand, the first thing I noticed was the fragrance. It's not one I'm familiar with, but I actually really enjoyed it. I'm going to assume that what I was smelling was the Hibiscus flower since that along with Grape Seed Oil is what's in this. Either way, I enjoyed it and to me it smells crisp and clean.

Consistency: The consistency of the cleansing conditioner is pretty thick, not runny like shampoo, more like a creme. This doesn't really bother me but it does make it a little more difficult to work through hair because it doesn't have the "slip" like shampoo or even conditioner. It's not terrible though. I did notice that it took about 4-5 pumps worth, versus my initial 2, to get this really good and worked into my daughter's hair. The bottle says 6-8 pumps so it was expected.

When I worked this into Ms. K's hair, it does take a little patience, but if you have curly hair or a curly child you are probably used to that anyway. It's a very low lather as it claims. I worked this thoroughly through her hair, and then let it sit for about 3 or 4 minutes while she played.

The Rinseout: Due to the consistency of this, it takes a little more work to rinse it out all the way, but once it's rinsed out, it leaves hair smelling and feeling so clean and moisturized.

I have to say that when I got my daughter out of the tub, I told the Mr. to look at her hair, and it was so pretty. It honestly was the first time I could say that I appreciated her curls. Even after her hair dried, it was super soft, bouncy, LIGHTWEIGHT, and smelled so good. This is one of the best if not the best, product I've used as far as curl definition as well. Her is my daughter's hair after the first wash with this cleansing conditioner.

Day of Washing..........


Say Goodby to the Frizzies

L'oreal claims that the EverCurl Cleansing Conditioner helps to control frizz for up to 48 hours, and I can agree after using it. My daughter's hair stays baby soft and very manageable for a good few days before it gets frizzy again. Overall, I really like this a lot and will most definitely 100% be purchasing it again. I have since purchased and tried another product from this line L'Oreal EverCurl Hydracharge Leave-In Creme, and so far I'm really enjoying it as well. (Will be posting a detailed review on that one soon so stay tuned.)

The picture below is my daughter's hair 3 days after the initial use of this product. This is the kind of curl definition you're going to see with the Conditioning Cleanser. In the mornings when she gets up, I will spray her hair with the detangling spray I make (has since been updated to just 2 ingredients since the cleansing conditioner eliminates the use of so much in between washes).

Nothing is ever 100% perfect, and this product is no exception.

  • Price is a little high at about $7.00 a bottle (but it does both jobs and there are often coupons available)
  • Difficult to work into hair
  • Takes a generous amount for each wash

Even though there were a few things I wasn't thrilled about, they aren't breaking points for me, and it won't keep me from purchasing this in the future.


This is a great product, I'm very glad I purchased it and plan to keep using this along with others from the line. Here are the main positive points I found:

  • Cleansing Conditioner: which means it eliminates a step in hair washing, while moisturizing at the same time.
  • No Sulfates
  • Nice Scent
  • Results were outstanding and it does what it says it does
