L’Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Clay – Does it work?

I actually fit the bill for this product perfectly, I’ve always had oily roots but dry ends. I have to wash my hair every other day and use dry shampoo in-between, which as you can imagine is an absolute nightmare! I have tried all sorts to help my hair become more balanced, but nothing has worked. When I saw this range I was so excited that finally something was out there for this annoying hair type I have… But does it make my hair feel “purified” for 72 hours?

In short, for 72 hours, it doesn’t *rolls eyes* But I do still really like this system. I’ve noticed that my hair has become less greasy, even if only slightly there is a difference. I was worried that the clay would leave my roots feeling stripped of moisture, dry and frizzy, but thankfully it doesn’t. After initial use my hair felt light weight, it was clean at the roots and fairly nourished at the ends! I would say my hair really is the extreme, so if your roots don’t get too oily I feel like this would work so well for you. Or if you wanted a deep clean for your roots once a week this would be a fab option for that. 

The clay part to all of this is a bit of a faff, I’ve used a lot of it up already so I’ll be needing to repurchase that way before the shampoo and conditioner. The conditioner is good because it doesn’t leave my fine hair feeling weighed down at all, but I feel like it could be more nourishing than it is so I still use a deep conditioner on the ends of my hair once a week.

If you have a similar hair type to my then please help a girl out and share how to control it. I feel like I have tried everything, from not washing my hair as often to conditioning before using shampoo… nothing seems to really work. Overall I love the concept of this, but my hair needs something even more powerful!

    I've got the same issue as you but not as extreme. I've not found a treatment that works but will give this a go, sounds perfect for me. I'll let you know if it works or if I find something else that might suit your hair 🙂

      Yes I think it would be really good! I'm still using it and enjoying it but I just need something a little stronger. Yes I'll let you know, I'm still on the hunt 🙂 xx

    I really like this range too but like you it definitely doesn't last 72 hours for me! I'm still washing my hair every other day as normal but it feels super clean and soft when I use this! Danielle's Beauty Blog

    • Jodie Moores says:

      Ahh yes exactly the same then! I'm still using it too and enjoying it, there needs to be something stronger though.. Someone on my twitter recommended a clay shampoo, so I might give that a go! x

    I was intrigued when I saw this range in Boots the other day. My hair tends to get oily really fast but the ends of my hair get pretty dry so this sounds perfect. Definatley going to give it a try! xxwww.bethanlikes.com

      Yeah I think it on introductory offers at the minute so you can buy it cheaper! I am impressed by the range, my hair is just really oily! xx

    I have similar hair and I really love using the Lush 'I love juicy' shampoo. The people at the store always warn that it's 'stripping' but on my oily roots it's not stripping, it just does the job and actually cleans my hair. http://www.thesundaymode.blogspot.com.au

    • Jodie Moores says:

      Thank you for the recommendation, I'm going to give that a go! I can always put a good conditioner on my ends x

    my hair doesn't get greasy easily but my sister has the exact same problem and the only thing that helps her are a pure organic range of hair products with no added nothing. maybe that could work for you too.❥loovelle.blogspot.com

    • Jodie Moores says:

      Oo yes maybe! Thank you for the recommendation.. I haven't used hair products like that in a while so it might be good to give something more natural a try xx

    I have a similar hair type to this, the ends aren't overly dry but definitely not nourished & oily roots are a nightmare. Might give this a go but I wish I knew the solution to the problem!Lucy | Forever September

    • Jodie Moores says:

      Another thing I do that helps is just wash the roots of my hair with shampoo, I never lather it into the ends and that really helps keep my ends feeling less dry. I would give the Clay Masque a go, it might help slightly like it has for me! xx
