It’s been awhile since I got a VoxBox from Influenster, so I was super excited when the L’Oreal Extraordinary Clay System came to my doorstep for me to try out!
I seem to have a hard time finding hair products (especially shampoo & condition) that work well with my hair type! Because of this I was super excited to give this new system a try! In my VoxBox came three products: the Clay Mask, Re-balancing Shampoo, and Re balancing Conditioner! The packaging on the mask says,
“Deeply absorbs oil and purifies the scalp, ultra fresh, lightweight roots!”
“Introducing our 1st purifying pre-shampoo clay mask. Used before your shampoo, it deeply absorbs impurities and excess oil at the root, for long-lasting fresh, beautiful hair.”
I will admit that one thing I struggle with is oil roots. I’ve always had oily roots, but now that I work out so hard in the morning, it seems to be worse. I’m not one of those people that can go 48 hours without shampooing their hair…well, I could, but it would just be downright gross! This new system from L’Oreal boasts “up to 48hr purified roots + hydrated ends”…obviously I was intrigued. It also says that these products are ideal for people with oily roots and dry ends and that’s definitely me!
So, anyway…on to my testing. One Saturday when I didn’t have to be anywhere right away, I gooped up my scalp with the mask and like any good review blogger, I put a stunning picture of myself on Instagram!
After letting the mask set for at least 5 minutes…(I think it actually ended up being about 10-15 minutes because that’s how my life goes), I headed for the shower, where I used the shampoo and conditioner! So, did it work? What did I think?
- Super easy to use all the products
- The shampoo & conditioner can be used without the mask, if need be
- My hair feels super clean and super soft when I use it!
- The products smell really well and the scent hangs around, even after I’ve put other product in my hair and gone on with my day!
- In order to get the whole system done, you’ve got to be able to spare 5-10 minutes prior to your shower (not feasible for me on a day to day basis).
- The system did not last me 48hrs, but I was going to be shocked if it did.
So, what’s my final verdict?! I enjoy the system and will definitely continue using the shampoo and conditioner (and will probably purchase it once available in stores). The mask will stay until I’m out. Purchasing it later is still up for debate! If you have oily roots and dry ends I would definitely recommend at least giving the Extraordinary Clay system at least one shot!
