L’oreal Studio Mineral Control Modelling Gel Paste Review


Hi Girls,


I have curly hair which was always pretty frizzy..After a lot of research and using diff products, my hair has calmed down a bit bit there are always those tiny random strands which refuse to stay down and poke up making me look as if I’ve been electrocuted! 😉


Also, I usually comb back the middle section of my hair back with a hair comb and always noticed some shorter strands wriggling upwards which looks seriously funny ….so after a lot of research I found this gel paste on Healthkart and decided to give it a whirl.

My experience with L’oreal Studio Mineral Control Modelling Gel Paste


  • Packaging –This gel paste comes in a white tub with a lawn green colored lid. I wish this was in a tube form because its very unhygienic to use the fingers to scoop it out everytime and using a spatula is ok, but irritating all the same.

  • Color –This paste is clear white in color.
  • Texture – It has a very thick but soft kind of a texture…like a souffle. It isn’t greasy or anything and spreads quite easily.
  • Fragrance – It has a mild chemical fragrance which is a bit annoying but fades away after a couple of minutes.
  • Usage –After combing my hair and using my hair comb to push back the required section of hair, I scoop out a tiny bit (a tiny dollop the size of a green pea) and spread it over the wayward strands in the direction I want them to stay. Incase I want to braid my hair, I apply a slightly larger quantity over the braid to tame them as well.

Does it work?


Definitely! This has helped a lot in making my hair behave. I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve gone for a party or a wedding with my ‘shocked’ hair. I wish I’d found this earlier…or atleast during my wedding! I still have a pic during my reception where my tiny strands are standing up like the rays of the sun! 😉


The major plus point about this in my opinion is that it is non greasy and even after using this, it doesn’t look like I’ve applied anything. It lends a healthy shine to the hair without looking oily or tacky. This also stays for a long time. I have had this on my hair for about 12-13hrs at a stretch and not even 1 strand wriggles out of its place 🙂 Cool na?

  1. nice reviw,luks nice..tubs s def unhygnic. . Yucks,.me hates. 2 tame those frzz n frys,betr invst in hair rebondng..instd usng load n loads of chemi evry tym. .it wl lead 2 buildup nly:-( loreal dosnt wrks 4 me. Gud it wrkd 4 u ! 🙂

    • thanx khushboo..

      hair rebonding ill never go in for! ive seen my pals suffer so much hair loss with that… i luv using his coz i us just a tiny t to tame the starys..u dont ned much….so not really to much chemicals.. 🙂

  2. god evening everyone and a merry christmas to you all! Z even i have the problem of the small small hair going astray.. apparently that is due to dry frizzy hair 🙁

    • seriously!! i wud hav luved to hav straight hair….i luv my mane when i straighten them..i keep swishing my head from side to side and can feel the strands flitting about so nicely..not like my current curls which r so unruly i can only feel them bobbing around in the air! no swishing at all! 🙁

    • haha! Vishu!! beautiful hair???? Oh I wish!! my hair is one of the saddest ever….i hav to do so much to make it controllable atleast…

      and i dont use much of this also…i wud use just a pea sized amt or even lesser….otherwise i run the risk of getting my scalp all greasy…

    • well, if ur hair isnt too frizzy then the usage will be very very limited….apart from taming starys u can use it if u like hair styling…For example if u like making those thin braids and then looping above ur head n all then its nice coz the braid will stay still and running a bit of the paste over it will avoid tiny hairs from escaping n all…

  3. naaa…i dont see it making much difference to the volume…but then again, my hair is pretty wavy as it is and i feel it has too much volume so i may not actually be able to gauge properly if this does make a diff to volume….
