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!!!!

  3. Nice post. I be taught something more challenging on totally different blogs everyday. It would always be stimulating to learn content from other writers and practice somewhat one thing from their store. I’d want to make use of some with the content material on my blog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll give you a link in your net blog. Thanks for sharing.
