Spring favorites: Give your hair an 8-second transformation with L’Oreal’s Wonder Water.


By SARA VANDEN BERGE


My skepticism was on high-alert when my friend Jennifer told me about an inexpensive product that she claimed did wonders for her hair.


With fine hair like mine, Jen told me that a quick wash with L’Oreal’s Elvive 8 Second Wonder Water left her hair feeling thicker and smoother.

“You have to try it,” she said.


Since I’ve been wishing for thicker hair for the past 50 years, I was willing to risk 8 seconds of my life and a few dollars for beauty.


But even while placing my order for a bottle on Amazon (6.8 oz. for $8.97), I was skeptical.


L’Oreal promises that its Wonder Water will give your hair an instant transformation in just 8 seconds.

Its website states: “Wonder Water’s liquid formula stands out from conventional rinse-out treatments. Upon contact with wet hair, it works in just 8 seconds to visibly transform hair in a single use. Damaged hair feels silky, shiny and healthy.”


My bottle of Wonder Water appeared on my doorstep less than 24 hours later and I hopped in the shower with it a short time later.


The hope that its magic potion would improve my hair woes even a teensy bit had me excited to give it a try.

I washed, rinsed, then smoothed Wonder Water through my locks (its consistency truly is like water, so be careful when pouring it out).


And because I’m a rebel, I left it in for about 30 seconds.


And guess what?


The difference was immediate.


My hair felt thicker and healthier, and when I dried it, the frizzy ends were gone, replaced with a smoothness I can only get at the salon.

Even my style held all day.


I told my daughter about it, and now she is a fan too.


If your hair needs some spring sprucing, give Wonder Water a try.


You won’t regret it.
