Move over, charcoal—it’s time for clay to have its time in the spotlight. We’ve seen clay formulated in beauty products for years, but you’re about to see a ton of new beauty products featuring the oil-absorbing mineral compound very soon, including this new L’Oreal Extraordinary Clay hair care line that I’ve been obsessed with lately.
This new pre-shampoo, shampoo & conditioner ritual is designed to absorb oil from the roots while hydrating and nourishing dry ends—a problem many people struggle with, especially those like me with straight, fine hair.
The collection is formulated with three mineral clays—Kaolinite to absorb oil and purify hair at the root; Argilane which is used in traditional soaps for its cleansing abilities, and; Montmorillonite, a water-absorbing clay to hydrate the hair.
The pre-shampoo mask is applied to dry roots and can be used once a week for 5 minutes. You’ll really see your roots lifted afterwards! The line also contains a purifying shampoo and weightless conditioner (but still only use the conditioner on the ends)!
Over time, this collection will help to break the vicious cycle of over-cleansing and will help keep your hair feeling fresher, longer. After my first use with the trio, I was able to skip the 2nd day dry shampoo and my hair still looked fresh. After using it for an extended period of time, I feel like my style lasts longer throughout the day and I can even push my shampoo an extra day (making it about 3-4 days on average between cleanses).
This line would be great for those who struggle with oily roots and want to “train” their hair to go a few days in-between washes.
The L’Oreal Extraordinary Clay collection is available now in Canada.shop this story
