L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Clay Hair Care

by - Sunday, May 08, 2016

You've heard me complain many times about my oily skin when it comes to make-up. Well, let's just say it's not just my face that gets oily, it's my scalp as well. I've been battling with it since a very young age, have tried many products but nothing really seemed to make a difference. When I saw L'Oreal Elvive created a new line of products targeting specifically that problem it was a no-brainer really, I had to give it a whirl. L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Clay Hair Care is what we're all about today at the ED headquarters.

I feel like I've been using L'Oreal Elvive products pretty much all my adult life. My mother used them and when I started colouring my hair I became a fan of them too. Although I still colour my hair and use preservation treatment for natural shine and nourishment, most of the times I end up with oily roots and dry ends. I would have been fine if that was just the case but my hair are heavy, so the minute the roots turn oily the fall flat and lose all their natural movement. Who wants that for their hair? I know I don't. 

Maybe you're already wondering why this new line of products is going to be anything different than so many others out there, promising the same exact results. Well, most affordable hair care brands release a shampoo, conditioner and hair mask, yes? So far the L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Clay is the same, but with a twist. Well, actually two. Bear with me for a while longer.

First off, I really need to point out the fact that L'Oreal was going down the spa way with this line, be it the colour of the packaging (mint green is so on trend lately) or the lovely smell of clay. For those of you with a sensitive nose, I would suggest you give it a whiff before you buy as the smell of the hair mask maybe a bit OTT for some. To me it's a very refreshing, clean smell that was more than welcome. But let's go back to those twists.

Here you don't get to apply the hair mask after shampooing but as a preparation step before. After 5 minutes of it being applied to the roots you rinse it off and move on to shampooing your hair and then conditioning the dry ends. There will be some people who will find this weird to do but so far it has worked for me. I've managed to gain an extra day in-between washes and I believe it's all because of the hair mask. 

And here's the second twist, L'Oreal Extraordinary Clay Hair Care comes along with its own dry shampoo (which I forgot to take a picture of, sorry) included in the line. Unfortunately it's the only product that didn't perform for me as well as the rest. I suppose it would be fine for someone with less oiliness on their scalp than mine, but for now I'll stick to my heavy duty Batiste dry shampoo. 

All in all I'm really enjoying the new L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Clay Hair Care range and definitely recommend it. I personally will stick with it until something shiny and new comes my way, making my inner magpie stray from its course. What about you though, do you have a favourite product range for your hair?

Until next time,
