L'Oreal Extraordinary Clay Masque and Shampoo

L'Oreal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Clay Review

"It's green."

Were the first thoughts that came to mind. An unnatural shade for any skincare/hair care product and yet this was meant to be applied on the scalp.

But as a greasy-roots type of gal with sebum production paralleling life's stresses eg. worse with on calls at work and less so if I'm off on the weekends, the promise of oil-reducing hair clay instantly grabbed my attention.

L'Oreal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Clay Masque Pre Shampoo Treatment. This stuff is interesting. The texture of this masque is quite unique. It's a lot more bouncy and not as thick as I had imagined. It has an easily work-able texture that doesn't cling on to strands. I find myself thinking "I could get used to this". And perhaps branch out to trying other hair treatment products.

I apply a blob half the size of my palm and smooth on damp hair. Using scalp massaging strokes, it feels like a treat. After gently massaging, I wait about 5 minutes then rinse out, followed by the shampoo.

This works excellently at stripping out flakes and oils from the hair; and it also works well to prevent build up of sebum on the scalp. It's a wonderful product!

L'Oreal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Clay Re-Balancing Shampoo. This blue tinted shampoo, like the clay masque, has a somewhat bouncy lightweight texture. After a rinse, it leaves my hair semi-squeaky clean. Not super clean to completely strip out the oils, but it does feel a lil squeaky. Compared to the pre-shampoo treatment, somehow this isn't as oil controlling, and adds weight to the strands. I wouldn't recommend it.

Now if you're wondering about the conditioner, it wasn't on my radar. I hardly use conditioner as I find they apply too much weight on the hair and most leave quite a bit of residue. Perhaps once my current tube of Moroccan Oil conditioner runs out, I might purchase the Extraordinary Clay variant. 

And the effect?

Overall out of the two, I would recommend the L'Oreal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Clay Masque Pre Shampoo Treatment as it does seem to do the trick. I wouldn't recommend L'Oreal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Clay Re-Balancing Shampoo at all for greasy roots. The search is still on for the perfect dandruff defying shampoo. I'm up for any recommendations. Care to share?
