The L’Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Clay range is designed for people with oily roots and dry ends, which basically sums up my hair. I’ve been having bleach put on my hair for the last 6 years or so with (semi) regular highlights. This has left me with split, dry ends. I also don’t have my hair cut anywhere near enough and my poor hair does suffer. Added to that I also have a fairly oil scalp which leads to greasy hair sometimes after just one day.
The promise of this shampoo and conditioner to balance out my problem hair had me crossing my fingers. I will admit, the review I read suggested I would be able to go 4 days without washing my hair and I don’t agree. Maybe it’s just down to different hair but I definitely don’t think I can go longer than my standard 2 days.
However, from the first use I felt this left my hair feeling more weightless and it looked fresher and in a better condition overall. Having now used this for the past couple of weeks I’m definitely a fan. My hair smells amazing after I come out of the shower, and it continues to look glossy and light wash after wash.
So if you are looking for a shampoo that will stop you from reaching for your dry shampoo quite so often, this is probably not the answer for you, but if you have oily roots and dry ends and you’re looking for a product which will work for you and improve the condition and overall look of your hair then I would say it’s definitely worth a buy.
When I got these, they were on offer for £2 each and I am really happy with the results for that price!
