My hair had not been feeling the love lately, I don’t know if this is a thing for anyone else but my hair seems to ‘get used’ to products after a while and is left feeling a little sad. I’d been after a shampoo and conditioner to give my hair a special lift and I came across L’Oreal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Clay Re-Balancing Shampoo & Conditioner. I’ve been loving these products so much that I just had to share my thoughts on them.
I’d seen a few bloggers talking about this shampoo & conditioner so I was itching to try them out. My hair gets oily so quickly and yet the ends get really dry and tangled. I’ve also been getting a lot of frizz lately so I really needed something to help it out. If I’m being honest, I’ve never really got on with L’Oreal hair products in the past as they tend to weigh my hair down and make the oil problem even worse. However, these products were promising exactly what I needed; the shampoo is meant to deeply purify your scalp leaving it oil free and fresh for longer and the conditioner claims to hydrate your ends, making them soft, shiny and frizz free.
I worked the shampoo into my roots and the first thing I noticed was that a little bit of product really does go a long way with this shampoo. The formula is really thick and I have a lot of hair but I only needed a small amount. I applied the conditioner to just the ends of my hair, again I was able to use way less conditioner than I do with other conditioners I’ve used. The scent is absolutely amazing, I’m really bad at describing scents but the smell is just so fresh and clean. After drying and straightening my hair the smell still lingered throughout the day.
I can very honestly say that both of these products really have changed my hair for the better. After using them just once, my hair felt so thoroughly cleaned and silky smooth. I literally felt like I was in a shampoo advert and I couldn’t stop running my fingers through my hair because it just felt so good. It was noticeably much easier to brush through my hair after washing it, usually I suffer from really knotty hair that I have to keep brushing throughout the day but this problem was pretty much eliminated. I really feel like this has saved my hair, I’ve only used it a couple of times so far and I’ve had no more frizz or unwanted oily roots.
There’s also a clay hair mask treatment available as part of L’Oreal’s Clay Re-Balancing range that targets people who suffer from extremely oily roots so if that applies to you, it really could be a game changer. I’ll definitely be picking this up for myself when I spot it as I’m loving the rest of the range. These products are really kind on your purse as well as they’re a lot more affordable than a lot of high-end brands but work just as well. I paid £2.89 per product in Superdrug which I think is such a bargain for the results I was left with.
Have you tried any L’Oreal hair care before?
