L'Oréal Elvive Extraordinary Clay Range

I don't know about you but I do feel as if I have tried everything to get my hair looking shiny, healthy and try to eliminate my dry ends. Regular cuts, letting my hair dry naturally and trying every hair care product going to battle these problems. FINALLY! A hair care range to targets oily roots and dry ends! L'Oréal you beauty! I have always struggled with oily roots and dry ends I could even go on to say straw like ends that break so easily. I have tried no end of products to try and nourish my dry ends but these can leave my roots looking very greasy, so greasy that it doesn't always even look as if I wash my hair. It is rather frustrating, as my hair only lasts a day and I am having to wash it every other day, everyone knows that regular washing can create more problems rather that combating them. So when I saw this L'Oréal Extraordinary Clay range in Boots that promises to purify roots and hydrate those pesky dry ends I had to put them in my basket and give them a try.

L'Oréal have combined 3 refined clays which aim to absorb oil and balance the hair from root to tip. This clay range includes a Clay Masque Pre-Shampoo Treatment, a Re-Balancing Shampoo & Conditioner, an Anti Dandruff Shampoo and a Dry Shampoo. I picked up the Shampoo, Conditioner the Masque and the Dry Shampoo.

Let's start with the Clay Masque Pre-Shampoo Treatment and seeing as it's a clay I expected it to be a grey colour but the masque was a vibrant blue colour. The recommendation is to leave the masque on your hair for 5 minutes to deeply absorb excess oils and impurities before rinsing the clay out whilst massaging the scalp until the water runs clear. The consistency of the product is easy to apply to the hair but it does feel strange applying to dry hair because it feels so heavy. I really thought that the clay masque helped my roots feel really light and my hair wasn't oily after three days. 

After using the Clay Pre-Shampoo Masque, I applied the Re-Balancing shampoo onto wet hair, gently massaging into the scalp and then rinse. This product is great! It smells lovely and my hair feels and looks so great. And when paired with the masque and conditioner it has truly extended the length of time my hair has stayed clean and grease free. It is so easy to use and is great value, I also think that colour of the packaging is cute too. I could even go on to say that without the masque the shampoo and conditioner combo improved the length of time my hair has remained clean, grease free and nourished!

The Re-Balancing conditioner claims to deeply purify roots, hydrate dry ends to create perfectly balanced hair condition. For best results it's recommended that after shampooing, apply onto the hair focusing on the mid-lengths and ends, then rinse. I absolutely love the rich texture of the conditioner which makes it so easy to apply and to be honest you don't need to use a lot. I have long hair with split ends, that is prone to frizz and gets greasy quickly, this conditioner eliminates all of those problems. 

By using this trio has left my hair feeling soft, nourished and I feel as if there is a definite lift at the roots so my hair has more body. It has to be one of the best products that is available at the moment that promises to combat any grease build up in the roots to hydrating dry ends - this perfect trio will help break the vicious cycle of oily roots and dry ends in no time.

  1. This looks great. I'll have to give this one a try. I have this problem sometimes too, although it has definitely been helped by only washing only every other day. My hair dresser also gave me the tip of rinsing my hair every day, but no shampoo and just a small amount of conditioner on the ends, which seems to help. These products look great though, will remember these for the future. x
