Today, we are going to look at the all-new L’Oréal Paris Extraordinary CLAY range. It is a new range that L’Oréal has put out, and I was instantly excited to try these out because it sounded unique and tempting. So, this is basically a clay-based range that has three products: a shampoo, a conditioner, and a scalp refresher. This range is quite unique as I have never heard any brand putting clay in their hair care products. I have been using these products for the past 2 weeks, and now I have a good idea how they work and what I think about them.
Price: INR 66 for 75 ml [BUY HERE: L’Oreal Paris Extraordinary Clay Shampoo, 175ml]
Shelf Life: 36 months
Product Description: Do you feel that your hair becomes greasy too rapidly and washing it too often dries out your lengths? You need tailor made care! For the 1st time, L’Oréal Paris Laboratories have infused the extraordinary power of pure clay in a shampoo to keep your hair non-stop fresh for up to 72 hours. It washes off excess oil from scalp and roots, eliminates impurities and pollution particles, and moisturizes from length to tip of the hair.
My Experience with L’Oréal Paris Extraordinary CLAY Purifying & Hydrating Shampoo
Packaging: This shampoo comes in an opaque beautiful turquoise-colored bottle with a flip-top cap. Both the front and the back labels carry all the necessary information. Being sleek, sturdy, and leak-proof makes it absolutely travel friendly. The opaque packaging, however, makes it hard to find out how much product is used. Except for the color of the packaging, nothing fancy.
Texture: The texture of this shampoo is very light, thin, and runny—a sort of gel like—and is ideal for daily use. The actual shampoo too comes in a translucent shiny turquoise color. It has a nice, citrusy, fresh fragrance. Moreover, the heavenly fragrance lingers on the hair for quite some time as well. Its light texture makes it to dilute easily with water.
Performance: As I mentioned earlier, this shampoo contains clay, and clay is well known for its cleansing and hydrating properties. This is so unique for a shampoo. Another amazing point is that this shampoo is for people with oily scalp and dry ends. Shampoos usually cater to either oily hair or dry hair, but this shampoo caters to oily scalp and dry ends, which is exactly my hair type. So for me, this shampoo has the best of both worlds. Moreover, this shampoo says that it helps get rid of all the dirt and pollution particles. It is cool to have a product like this as we generally tend to neglect hair compared to our face related to pollution. A small amount of this shampoo is quite enough as it lathers well and is effective. As it suggests, it cleanses the scalp so very well, and it leaves a nice cooling sensation on the scalp that I love. While washing the hair itself, you could notice some chillness on the scalp. It is not the kind of cold you would not like, but it is that fresh, cold feeling. When I use the shampoo itself, my hair feels fresh and amazing. Once the shampoo is washed off, the scalp feels fresh, lightweight, and hydrated. The shampooed hair not only feels fresh but also looks really fresh. For three to four days, the hair feels fresh and frizz free even without the use of a conditioner. This shampoo adds a bounce and makes the hair manageable and soft. The scalp does not get oily at all for three days straight. The best part is that while keeping the scalp oil free, it does not make the hair ends extremely dry as well. However, it does not add any shine or healthy look to the hair. Because the scalp is oil and dirt free, there is a good amount of reduction in hair fall. Overall, I am very much pleased with this shampoo and enjoying every wash with it.
