Today Im going to talk about something I have absolutely been swearing by for the past month or so! I was going to include it in my June Favourites video over on my Youtube but I decided it needs a whole post to itself.
The L’Oréal Elvive Extraordinary Clay Shampoo and conditioner are just incredible!!! Before finding these I was chopping and changing with my hair products trying to find the perfect ones. I find this so hard because I suffer from very sensitive skin, especially on my scalp, and as a result of this I suffer from very dry scalp and dandruff sometimes. I never really talk about my sensitive scalp because people seem to think dandruff is dirty etc and its not at all, I wash my hair very regularly, it has nothing to do with cleanliness! So back to my point, I not only need to find a shampoo to help prevent my sensitive scalp and dandruff flaring up, but I also have coloured hair. Finding a shampoo that will both protect my colour from fading and protect my scalp is really difficult. I had been using the L’Oréal Elvive Colour Protect which was fantastic for my colour as you would expect but didn’t help my scalp at all. I then tried using both head and shoulders and the colour protect shampoo together but again, it didn’t help at all.
I had heard about the new Extraordinary Clay Shampoos and Conditioners and when I went into boots and saw they were both half price I couldn’t help but give them a try! My scalp had been do painful for about 2 months before this and I was willing to try anything to help! As well as my sensitive skin flaring up, my hair was also in one of the worst conditions it’s been in for a while. Since dying and bleaching my hair over and over it was starting to suffer the consequences. The ends felt like straw and were just snapping off every time I brushed my hair. It felt so so bad.
To try and rescue my hair I picked up the L’Oréal Elvive Extraordinary Anti Dandruff Shampoo and the Re-Balancing Conditioner. After only one wash my hair and scalp already felt so much better! I’d had this with a couple of other brands I had tried so I wasn’t feeling hopeful that I’d found the perfect products yet, but I stuck it out and kept using them to see if the results lasted, AND THEY DID!!! I could not be happier with the way these products have left my hair. My sensitive scalp has not flared up once since using these products and my hair hasn’t felt this thick and healthy in a long time! I am so so happy with the results.Another great thing about these products is that they are Silicone Free. My hairdresser told me before my hair felt so good after using the Elvive Colour protect because my hair was just coated in silicone so I’m really glad that L’Oréal have changed their formulas and removed this. Now I know my hair just feels good, not because its covered in silicone! If you are on the search for a shampoo and conditioner to rescue you hair I definitely recommend trying out the Extraordinary clay range, they are definitely worth it
