Hey lovelies, I hope you are all well today! I am back with a little review of the new Clay Collection from L'Oreal.
This is a new range to the Elvive family, and it is specially formulated for us ladies and gents with oily roots but very dry ends. Rejoice something that will give me an extra day or two and hopefully will erase the issue of the oil slick.
Years ago I never had a major issue with oil production, but with the introduction of new medication, my hair seems to have decided to not play ball. Due to medication etc my hair falls out easily, so I try and make my washes last as long as possible. So when I read about this new collection I knew I had to try it.
The range includes:
Pre shampoo Masque Treatment
Re- balancing Conditioner
I decided to pick up everything apart from the anti- dandruff shampoo, so off I popped to Superdrug where they had them on a half price offer. I had high hopes and was very excited to try them. The packaging is a gorgeous bright turquoise blue and goes well with the blue colour of the product.
The main ingredients in the range are three different types of clay. A white clay to purify and cleanse the roots, a blue clay to hydrate the ends of the hair and a green clay to revitalise and perk up the whole hair fibres.
So did they actually work?
Pre Shampoo Clay Masque
This is the first step in the range and you apply a generous amount of the product to the scalp and roots of dry hair and leaving it on for around 10 minutes. This masque is quite scented, but it didn't aggravate my scalp and it felt lovely and purifying. After 10 minutes, I jumped in the shower and rinsed it off.
I really did feel this masque helped my hair and the production of the oils. I am easily getting an extra day or two from using this masque, but what I would say is, that I would advise only using it once a week as you don't want your hair getting dry and stripped of the natural oils.
You can purchase the mask here on boots for £5.99.
Re-Balancing Shampoo 250ml
Next I used the shampoo and it felt lovely and cleansing on my hair. It lathered up nicely but also had a gorgeous creamy, luxurious feel to it. I was worried that with all this clay my hair was going to end up very dry and matted, but I had no need to worry, my hair felt squeaky clean but not dry. You can buy the shampoo here for £2.89 from Boots. There is also a larger 400ml option available for £3.99
Re-Balancing Conditioner 250ml
I finished off with the conditioner, again it has this gorgeous clean smell to it and the gorgeous blue colour. It's very lightweight feeling on the hair and in no way did it leave my hair feeling weighed down. I wouldn't say that the conditioner blew me away the same way the shampoo and masque did but it was definitely nice to use. You can buy it here again in Boots for £2.89 with the option of the bigger one available again.
Dry Shampoo 150ml
This with the masque were the products I was most excited to try. Unfortunately it didn't live up to my expectations. It made my hair feel wet, and didn't really absorb any extra root oil. I have tried this a few times but I still am not getting on with it. You can get it here for £3.99.
Keep an eye on Boots and also Superdrug, as they frequently have offers on these ranges, and you can pick them up for less than half price
The mask has became a staple in my routine now and I really feel for anyone suffering with an oily scalp it is worth trying. I will definitely be repurchasing the shampoo, conditioner and masque but for now I will stick to my normal brand of dry shampoo.
Hope you enjoyed this little review, and please let me know if you have tried any of the range.
