L'ORÉAL Elvive Extraordinary Clay: Clay to Spray Dry Shampoo

I got really excited when I heard about L'Oreal's Extraordinary Clay range, especially the Clay-To-Spray Dry Shampoo (€5.99). With three refined clays to help combat the problem of oily roots and dry ends, I thought this is ideal for me and my hair. I do love a good dry shampoo, with Batiste and COLab usually being my go to's but they can make my ends even drier, so I'm thinking I could be onto a winner with L'Oreal.


The packaging stands out with it's sleek light green shade. Handy size of 150ml so easy for travelling with in the handbag. The nozzle was the first issue I ran into, it broke on the second go and had to go buy another, and I'm disappointed to say the second one broke on the fifth time of trying it. It smells fresh to begin with but I could also get that hint of aerosol that you get from these cans and this smell started to bug me after awhile. Now in fairness that could be just me; I'm not a huge fan of aerosol cans and only use dry shampoos really in this form. I just can't stand that smell you get from them. I hope you all know what I'm talking about or maybe I need my head checked!


L'Oréal claim that this dry shampoo will lift your hair and give volume. Nope, not with me. My hair looked flat as a pancake. They also claim that it will keep your hair fresher for longer in between washes. You spray this in, leave for 2 mins, and then lightly brush but I saw no results at all. I do have the type of hair that needs to be washed everyday. I try my best not to do this so not to strip the oils so I find dry shampoo's the perfect go to for second day hair, but this was a lost cause for me. The product just disappeared on my hair leaving no residue which, in turn (in my head anyway), made me think there was nothing there to help soak up the oils in the first place.

It's being a long while since I tried something that failed so badly for me, but let me know if you tried it and worked?!

    1. It was very disappointing and I had such high hopes for it! Maybe my expectations were too high but I really couldn't see any difference it could possibly make. x

  5. I tried it too. It was awful. Made my hair look greasy. So disappointing as I use other Loreal products which are great. Will be sticking to my Batiste. :-)

    1. Glad in one way I'm not the only one who was disappointed. You are right as I love many of their other products so was very surprised that the dry shampoo didn't work out :-(
