New L'Oreal Hair Care - Clay Isn't just For Your Skin!

Who knew that clay wasn't just good for your skin?! This new L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Clay range contains 3 different clays for smoothing, hydrating and revitalising your hair. Have a look below to hear more and find out what I thought about them!

The first step in the new range is to purify with the Detox Clay Mask (RRP $11.19). You apply the mask onto your roots (while your hair is dry) and leave it for 5-10 minutes. The product claims to absorb 100% of sebum and impurities, and I have to agree that it does do that. After I had rinsed it out and washed and dried my hair, my hair felt a lot lighter somehow, and I think that has to be a result of the mask absorbing sebum/impurities. It also has a really nice scent - kind of sweet and fruity. 

The next step is to cleanse and rehydrate with the Rebalancing Shampoo (RRP $6.59). I REALLY liked this shampoo! I am typically very lazy when it comes to hair, and will just use any old product, but I'm sticking with this from now on! First of all, it was the scent that got me. I think all of the products in this range have the same scent, but I really noticed it in the shampoo. But the most important thing, which might sound weird, it made my hair feel reallllllly clean. Obviously, all shampoo cleans your hair, but this one somehow just made it feel even cleaner than usual. It also did the job without getting my hair as tangled up as other shampoos do. 

The third step is to hydrate with the Detox Conditioner (RRP $6.59). Again, the smell was great. It did a great job of detangling the few tangles I had left from using the shampoo, and it rinsed out easily (I HATE conditioners that feel like they leave a heavy oily residue on my hair and this doesn't do that at all), and felt smooth after. It is everything I want from a conditioner.

The final step is to refresh your hair! There are two new dry shampoos. The first one pictured - the Elvive Extraordinary Clay Dry Shampoo (RRP $11.19) is made to go with the other 3 products I talked about above. It is an invisible dry shampoo - if you haven't used an invisible dry shampoo before, the great thing about them is that they don't spray out a visible white powder, that you have to be careful to brush out, and can sometimes leave a white cast, but on the other hand they don't tend to absorb quite as much oil as visible dry shampoos. So there are positives and negatives to them, and whether you should go for an invisible dry shampoo really depends on your hair type and what you want to achieve from using it. Now, I know you're probably sick of hearing me talk about how things smell at this point, BUT...this smells DELICIOUS. Again, I think it's the same scent as the rest of the range, but this one has the strongest scent and reminds me of watermelon. I've been spraying it in my hair even when I don't need it, just for the scent. 

The other dry shampoo is a root lifting dry shampoo for fine, flat hair - Elvive Fibralogy Air Dry Shampoo (RRP $11.19). This one is also invisible and really does give my roots that extra bit of oomph. 

Have you tried any L'Oreal hair care products? Which others would you recommend?
