From beauty editors to influencers, it seems like everyone's talking about L'Oréal Wonder Water right now. Already a best seller in the US, beauty lovers are raving about the cult treatment now that it's landed on UK shores. So, what makes it so good?

Promising to transform hair in just eight seconds, Wonder Water is a liquid conditioner that promises to detangle, add shine and heal damage in all hair types, not just long, straight hair.

The secret ingredient is patent pending Lamellar water technology, which smooths hair due to its moisturising agents and amino acids – tests found that all hair types were 10 times smoother with less breakage after use.

Even better news? You can currently pick up this miracle treatment for less than £5 at Superdrug. Keep reading for everything from before and after pictures to how it works...

A conditioning treatment using Lamellar water that gets to work in just 8 seconds. 

How do you use L'Oréal Wonder Water?

Wonder Water is a rinse-out conditioning treatment applied only to the lengths of your hair that can be used up to three times per week. Using a zig-zag motion, apply one dose if you have fine to medium hair, or two to three for thick and curly, textured hair. Add an extra dose if your hair is very long.

Massage into your hair for eight seconds (as the name suggests) and then rinse, following with conditioner if needed. Then blow dry your hair for extra shiny results or use the L’Oréal Professionnel SteamPod 3.0 for an ultimate sleep look.

Despite only launching a matter of weeks ago, the product has already racked up hundreds of positive reviews. One online reviewer writes, "I was a bit dubious how something can work in 8 seconds, I don’t know what kind of wizardry is at work here but I really did make a massive difference after only that time! My hair feels smoother, softer and it’s shinier."

Another added, "My hair is definitely much smoother, stronger and shinier after using this product and also so much softer and easier to comb. I have long waist length coloured hair and this product worked perfectly for me and left no residue and did not weigh down my hair."

With those glowing reviews, we'll take three, please.
