L’Oreal Paris Extraordinary Clay Shampoo and Conditioner Review

I thought I would do a quick little review on a new shampoo and conditioner I have been using for the past few weeks.

I have bombarded my hair with different colours, bleach and various products over the past few years and recently I felt I needed to back off and give it a rest. I asked my hairdresser to just dye my hair back to it’s natural brown (a colour I have not had since I was a teenager!) The condition of my hair was not great. It has been really greasy at the roots but really dry at the ends. I was finding the current shampoos I had just made it worse. The shampoo for dry hair helped the ends but made the roots greasier and vice versa.

Whilst shopping, I spotted a new range by L’Oreal Paris called Extraordinary Clay. I bought the Re-balancing Shampoo and conditioner as they completely suited to my hair ‘greasy roots and dry ends’.

It claimed to:

  • Deeply purify scalp for 72 hours with freshness and light, lifted roots
  • Hydrate dry hair right to the ends
  • Revitalise the hair with softness, shine and bounce.

After the very first use I noticed a huge difference and my hair looked great. It completely re-balanced all areas of my hair leaving my hair looking fresh and healthy. I have been using it a few times a week for the past month and I am so impressed. It has really turned my hair around. They stand up to these claims as hair stays fresh for several days. I felt I had to write a blog post about this as I really am pleased and know many of my readers face the same hair problem.

Available from Superdrug for £2.50 each for 250ml.

  1. Where was this shampoo when I used to bleach my hair? In the end I had to do what you did; just ask my stylist to dye it back to my natural colour because it was in such horrible condition!

  2. I refuse to give up the dye, so it has been an ongoing battle of ‘what’s the best approach’ while still trying to maintain the blue I love so much! I am blessed to not have overly greasy roots so I was able to make the transition to cowashing to save mine. Glad you found something that works!!!!
