L’Oréal Paris Extraordinary Clay Dry Shampoo

Where I got it: I got this from my local Countdown for $8.99 while there were having a Club Card special ($2.20 off). My local Farmers doesn’t seem to stock this range for some reason and they are not available from Pak n Save as well.

What I got: This is a 150ml can of the L’Oréal Paris Extraordinary Clay Dry Shampoo. Experience the cleansing power of clays in Extraordinary Clay Dry Shampoo.

L’Oréal Paris Extraordinary Clay Dry Shampoo

How I find it: I have dry, frizzy ends and oily roots so usually after I wash my hair, I like to use a defrizz serum or a hair oil. Therefore my second-day hair feels and looks the best. But by the 3rd day, my roots start to get greasy and hair feels heavy as well. I usually start using a dry shampoo on the 3rd day. This dry shampoo smells nice and doesn’t leave a white powdery residue on my dark brown/black hair. When I spray the product in my hair, I can see how it mattifies my roots slightly but when I brush it out, it doesn’t seem to do much in terms of absorbing the oils from my hair. I either need a lot more product or that this thing doesn’t work as good as I expected. It doesn’t give leave a gritty feeling on my hair though which is nice and it doesn’t weigh my roots down so much like a lot of other dry shampoo does.

Overall: Overall, not too impressed with the effectiveness of this dry shampoo, I think it probably has quite a high alcohol content but not enough active ingredients to absorb the oil from my hair, therefore it has a lovely cool feeling on the roots and minimal powdery residue and it doesn’t weigh my hair down. However, it defeats the purpose of using a dry shampoo I reckon… Now I just use it on second-day hair for a quick refresher and a gentle fragrance to the hair, but will not rely on this to give me a fresh hair look on 3rd day hair.
