L'Oreal Elvive Clay Masque

Loreal Elvive Extraordinary Clay masque

My local Boots is quite a small one, so when you walk in the door you are faced with the "shelves of temptation".  A display of new things or items on offer.  If you can walk past, you are a stronger person than I.

So about a week ago, in I go and right in my eyeline is the new Extraordinary Clay range from L'Oreal Elvive - a shampoo (including an anti dandruff one), conditioner and this clay masque.  I picked up the clay masque, which is a pre shampoo treatment because I've never seen or tried anything like this before and I was intrigued.

This pot of aqua blue clay is applied to dry hair, your roots/scalp, before you wash it. You leave it on for 5 minutes and then wash it off.

I don't have greasy hair but as I wash my hair every other day, on the non hair wash days, the back of my scalp does feel greasy.  (Probably not helped by the fact that I don't really dry that bit fully!).

Anyway, I love this stuff.  It is not a gimmick.  It works.  The sales pitch says that 3 refined clays work to absorb oil and water while cleansing your hair.  The clay soaks up sebum from the roots and hydrates the tips of your hair.  I don't put the clay on my tips (I said tips!), just my roots and after washing and drying, it honestly did lift my hair at the roots and they felt really soft, and clean. Properly clean.

At the moment the clay masque is only £5.99 in Boots.  Or you can buy the masque, shampoo and conditioner for £10.00.

The only tiny minus point for me is the clay masque on my hair smells very slightly like my oven tray does when I've cooked something fatty and the grease has solidified.  Gross I know.  But this is tiny, minor and its only on your hair for 5 minutes.  The clay in the pot smells lovely though.
