I came across this L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Clay duo when browsing Boots' website last month and after hearing that it is designed to balance the hair by hydrating ends but purifying roots to prevent the hair getting greasy, I was hooked. I aim to wash my hair every other day to keep the natural oils and prevent dryness and breakages, but for some reason my hair only seems to last one day without it looking oily. I do use dry shampoo but I try to do this sparingly as I've heard that it can be quite damaging to your scalp. Anyway, I began using this shampoo and conditioner around a month ago, and I use it 3-4 times a week. The first thing I noticed was the smell; this range has a lovely smell which lasts in your hair for about a day after use. It also made my hair feel super clean and soft which is a plus for me. I was really excited after the first use to see how long I could go with my hair still looking freshly washed, though unfortunately, my routine of washing every other day remained.
I have found that maybe my hair gets greasier even quicker than usually using this range which I'm disappointed about, as these are really highly rated! There is a pre shampoo masque that I haven't tried, so maybe this is the missing piece of the puzzle? I am going to repurchase the shampoo and conditioner, and also pick up the masque to see whether this makes a difference. I would definitely recommend this set as it definitely gives your hair a thorough cleanse, and the conditioner leaves your hair feeling soft and supple. In terms of keeping roots dry, I'm not convinced that it works, but I'll be back with an update after using the masque! Have you tried the L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Clay haircare set? What did you think?
