L'Oreal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Clay Re-Balancing Shampoo £2.59 Boots
They’ve only gone and done it again. I didn’t think the hair gods, aka L’Oreal could improve on Fibrology, but then came Extraordinary Clay…
I’ll cut to the quick – this shampoo has transformed my hair. It's taken me from an every other dayer to a twice a weeker – hair washes that is. Being able to go three days is rare, unless I’m hiding in the house, or under a hat. The first time I used this I got 4 whole days out of it! A couple of weeks in, I’m comfortably getting 3-4 days before the grease slick slides in.
The shampoo itself smells gorgeous. It works up a reassuringly thick and rich lather and rinses clean with no residue. My hair is fine, a little flat and prone to greasy roots. Elvive Extraordinary Clay definitely zaps the greasy roots but without making my locks frizzy or dry and most importantly for me, still gives my hair a good lift and leaves it feeling thicker and stronger. L'Oreal have basically served up my hair wish list on a pretty mint green platter. Big love for the mint green bottle by the way and the fact that it matches my favourite nail shade Essie Mint Candy Apple gives it extra kudos.
I’m not entirely convinced by the appeal of Clay for the hair. If it says volume, thickening, fattening or plumping, I’m like a moth to a flame, but this I probably would never have even picked this up, so thank gawd I came across a sample in a magazine! I still love Fibrology and I’ll reach for it whenever my hair needs some va-va-voom volume, but for now, Extraordinary Clay is my daily go-to! And the fact that it's just £2, is the icing on the (mint green) cake!
