L'Oréal Elvive Extraordinary Clay Re-Balancing Shampoo & Conditioner

What could you want more than smooth silky hair...? Probably a lot but it's a start eh?

If you've read this post: Tips for Badass Blonde Hair, then you'll already know my hair has been through a lot in a short space of time. I've bleached the hell out of it, loaded hair dye upon hair dye and it recently got to the point I basically had to chop most of it off it was so rank - but I have found my silicone-free saving grace.

L'Oréal Elvive Extraordinary Clay Re-Balancing Shampoo and Conditioner are honestly the best hair products I have ever used. I've always has pretty good experience's with their shampoos so I knew one way or another we were going to get on, however, little did I know we get on like a house on fire. I am in love. The clay based shampoo and conditioner claims to re-balance your hair, specifically targeting people with oily roots and dry ends to finally tame your tresses. This, my friend, is true.

"Oil produced from the scalp can build up causing the roots to become visibly greasy, weighing down the hair. Over-washing to combat this problem can strip the fibre leaving it dry. This results in a vicious cycle of washing. What if you could have hair that was cared for at both ends?"

When using the shampoo and conditioner together it hydrates ends and leaves roots pure for 72 hours, holding on to beaut hair a little longer between washes. Also avoids anyone washing like merry heck. Three refined clays are mixed in the product leaving your hair perfectly balanced and beautiful. Plus it smells flipping great. The conditioner leaves my hair light from the scalp and not heavy on my hair at all. I have pretty thick hair and it just feels all light and fluffy afterwards, which is such a bonus and something thick haired people struggle with. My hair is so shiny and soft, often with a little bounce (usually when running to work).

The main reason I fell in love with this product is because the results were immediate. I genuinely had new hair afterwards and in fact, after going out after the first wash, people commented saying my hair looked shiny and health. Is that not what we all strive for? I think so. I do feel like I have my old hair back. It's the kind of shampoo that lathers really well for those crazy bath hairstyles and foam beards. That's right, I know what's up.

As I mentioned before, these products are silicone -free. Ever wondered why your favourite shampoo and conditioner just 'stop working' for you? This is because of the silicone in it. This specific ingredient 'cones' your hair creating a barrier meaning your hair is unable to be hydrated, leaving it dry and brittle. Not only that, silicone makes the product really hard to rinse out of your hair as it's water insoluble creating a heavy greasy build up over time. Seems like an odd thing to put in shampoo... Luckily this baby has none of that.

The shampoo smells great as you would expect from a brand like L'Oréal and is currently around £2.50 a bottle in all major stores. There is nothing I don't like about this product. Highly recommend.
