The L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Clay Collection


L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Clay Review

I have to admit, despite my pretty apparent love for all things beauty related, it's very rare that I get particularly excited about haircare. Even though my hair could always be less frizzy, I tend to use the same products and brands on rotation and have done so for the past couple of years. So it takes something pretty special for me to really notice a new haircare range or launch but that's exactly what happened with this range.

I first spotted the L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Clay range on the front cover of Stylist magazine a couple of weeks ago and ever since then all I could do was think, 'why don't I give a new haircare range and regime a try?' By sheer coincidence a parcel arrived for me from L'Oreal with the new products enclosed and since then no other brand or product has touched my hair.

Designed specifically for those of us with oily or greasy roots and dry ends, it almost feels like a tailor-made routine for me and my hair. If you struggle to keep either your oily roots or dry ends at bay, or both, then the L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Clay is one that should definitely check out.

L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Clay Masque

The one product that caught my eye straight away, when I first saw the range, was the L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Clay Masque*. We've all heard of clay masques for the face but one for the hair? Now that really had me intrigued. Meant as the first step in the L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Clay routine, the clay masque is applied to dry hair for around five minutes before washing it off. It's essentially a pre-shampoo treatment which is there to help absorb any excess oils from the scalp.

I had worried that it might be difficult to apply but thankfully those worries were unfounded. It's actually quite a light texture for it being a clay masque and it washes out easily too. After using this just once I noticed the results straight away! My roots and scalp felt incredibly clean but they hadn't been dried out either, which is always a worry when you're attempting to combat oily or greasy roots.

The L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Clay Collection

I then followed the masque with the L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Clay Re-Balancing Shampoo* and the L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Clay Re-Balancing Conditioner*. These carry on the work that was started by the masque and again, my hair feels properly clean without being weighed down by product and I'm definitely happy with the results. Any preconceptions that the clay aspect of the range might leave my hair feeling overly dry or stripped in any sense, were completely wrong.

The range is rounded off with the L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Clay-To-Spray Dry Shampoo*. Since the rest of the routine provides you with hair that still feels clean on the third day you only really need to reach for this dry shampoo for a little bit of refreshing on those final days before your next wash. It's not chalky in the slightest, which is always the first thing that I look to avoid when it comes to dry shampoos and it works to extend the number of days between washes.

The L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Clay range also includes an anti-dandruff version of the shampoo and conditioner as well.

What do you think of the sound of the L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Clay range? Do you suffer from oily or greasy roots and dry ends? And do you have a favourite haircare range? If so, what is it?

  4. I've got these on standby for when my shampoo runs out and I'm so excited to try them! Honestly, been trying to use more shampoo than necessary just so plod through it. My reaction was the same as yours, when I heard clay masque for hair I knew I had to try it out.

  12. I loved the sound of this range as it sounds perfect for my hair, I'm so disappointed that the shampoo contains SLS! I think I'll still give the mask a go, though :)

    1. I used to have issues with a dry scalp/dandruff and recently it's cleared up a lot so I would definitely recommend trying the range out Rozalyn! :)

  15. I tested the shampoo and conditioner (used up the small size bottles) and felt like it only made my hair more greasy. I didn't get on with it at all and I so wanted this to work! One thing to note is that I didn't use the clay mask so that could have had an affect. On the whole I usually find that lighter shampoo works better for combating oil such as the herbal essence range
