Product review: L’oreal Extraordinary Clay shampoo and conditioner

Diwali is bad news for anyone who has greasy hair like mine. Even on regular days, I struggle with my oily hair and even oilier scalp. On principle, I have to wash my hair every alternate day, failing which locks of my hair start sticking to each other and forming oily clumps.

When I first saw the ad for the product, I was curious but I wasn’t sure if I needed buy a new shampoo since I was more than satisfied with my Organix B5 shampoo[1] and eucalyptus conditioner[2]. I had vowed to stick to the brand come what may. However…the attractive sea blue bottle and its promises of a 72-hour oil protection made me buy a tiny bottle to just try it out.

Worst case scenario, it could possibly end up as a foot shampoo if I didn’t like it. The packaging The packaging is not a big departure from Loreal’s usual style, but the colour theme is really soothing to the eyes.

The bottle is a light sea blue with a transparent, light-blue flip top cap. The ingredients Shampoo: Aqua / Water, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Coco-Betaine, Glycol Distearate, Sodium Chloride, CI 42090 / Blue 1, Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, Sodium Benzoate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Sodium Hydroxide, PPG-5-Ceteth-20, Argilla / Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Salicylic Acid, Fumaric Acid, Linalool, Benzyl Alcohol, Benzyl Salicylate, Montmorillonite, Kaolin, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Carbomer, Geraniol, Octyldodecanol, Citronellol, Citric Acid, Hexyl Cinnamal, Parfum / Fragrance, F.I.L.

C179833/1 Conditioner: Aqua / Water, Cetearyl Alcohol, Behentrimonium Chloride, Glycine Soja Oil / Soybean Oil, Cetyl Esters, Sodium Hyaluronate, Phenoxyethanol, Argilla / Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Chlorhexidine Dihydrochloride, Salicylic Acid, Linalool, Benzyl Alcohol, Benzyl Salicylate, Montmorillonite, Isopropyl Alcohol, Kaolin, Alpha Isomethyl Ionone, Geraniol, BHT, Citric Acid, Citronellol, Hexyl Cinnamal, Glycerin, Parfum/ Fragrance, F.I.L. C180281/1

As you can see, no parabens. That was enough to convince me! The price

It is moderately priced at 175 ml for 185 rupees. The 250 ml conditioner is priced at Rs 256. The review

The shampoo addresses a common problem that most girls with oily scalps encounter — an oily scalp and dry, broom-like hair. It’s a cruel joke! Coming back to the product, it comes enriched with clay (no idea which clay) that claims to wash off excess oil from the scalp and the roots, eliminating impurities and pollution particles and (most importantly) moisturise the hair shafts.

The moment I started lathering the shampoo on my hair, I was convinced that it is truly something spectacular. The shampoo forms a rich lather, coating the hair shaft in a thick creamy froth. It helps you detangle your hair in a jiffy.

In fact, it does a better job than most detangling creams. Most importantly, it leaves your hair feeling clean without leaving behind that annoying rough, squeaky feeling. The condition is dense and thick, not one of those lotion-like consistencies.

So when you apply it to your hair, the cream stays in place and it’s easy to wash off. Both have a mild fruity mango-like fragrance with a tingling minty undertone. It renders an icy-cool feeling to your scalp.

As for the claim, the shampoo didn’t lie. Three days later, my hair still feels great. Earlier, my hair would beg for a wash at the end of the second day.

Verdict: So I am sold and absolutely in love with this shampoo! I’d recommend it to the whole world.

I was insanely happy with my OGX brand.

But given the price difference, I think Extraordinary Clay is more suited to my budget as well as my hair!

Extraordinary indeed!

Dabur Amla hair oil – does it stop premature greying of hair …

Spotting your first few strands of grey hair can be really distressing. I almost panicked when I saw about 10 (maybe more) strands of grey hair almost 6 months ago on my scalp. That’s when I decided to try applying Dabur Amla hair oil.

I have never been satisfied with my hair. It’s too dry, frizzy and fine. The addition of grey hair to this list was too distressing for me, a 31-year-old.

Of course, it didn’t help them I grew even more stressed after looking at grey hair because stress can lead to greying of hair, hair loss and other conditions. Unlike some of my friends who have ’embraced’ the greys and somehow look glam with it, I haven’t been able to do so. I have never coloured my hair and I didn’t want to start doing it now, not so soon anyway.

So instead of going in for touch-ups or colouring or simply accepting this change, I decided to Google for quick, safe, home remedies of greying of hair. One of the first remedies for grey hair that came to my mind was amla – both topical application of amla hair oil and consumption of amla. Rich in Vitamin C and antioxidants, amla can give your hair volume and help your hair overcome nutritional deficiencies to reduce greying of hair [1].

Here are causes of premature greying of hair[1]. What Dabur Amla hair oil promisesThis hair oil claims to moisturise your scalp, prevents hair damage caused by chemicals, sunlight and pollution, control pre-mature greying of hair, gives you healthy hair and enhance hair growth to give you longer, stronger and thicker hair. How to use Dabur Amla hair oilI usually warm the oil a little, spread it on my palms and massage it into the scalp.

I use it on its own and sometimes with Bajaj Almond Drops hair oil[2] or any other oil. I leave it on overnight and wash it the next day. My experience with Dabur Amla hair oilThe first thing you notice is the colour–it’s dark green.

I haven’t tried making amla oil at home so I don’t know if this the natural colour of amla oil. The bottle does say it has permitted colours. The immediate next thing you notice when you open the bottle is the very strong smell.

Now, I do not mind the smell because 1) I don’t wear it outside my home 2) I am not very sensitive to smells; I don’t usually get headaches or any kind of irritation with strong smells. The smell is not exactly pleasant but not irritating either. It spreads easily all over the scalp because it has a very smooth, almost water-like consistency.

You need not mix it with other oils.You need only a little coin-sized quantity to cover your hair. It’s quite light. Your hair won’t weigh down with oiliness and it can easily be washed off with shampoo. (Read: Product Review of OGX Organix Repairing Awapuhi Ginger Shampoo[3]) I know it’s too early to notice if it has actually stopped greying of my hair.

I intend to continue using it with the hope that it will! I have heard of a lot of people claiming that this oil has made their black and delayed greying. My hair definitely became softer.

I don’t have dandruff but I sometimes have a dry flaky scalp. Whenever I use this, I feel like the oil cleanses my hair of the buildup of these flakes. ProsVery economically pricedCleanses the hairVery light on the scalp and hair

ConsVery strong smell that could be irritating to someIt doesn’t work that well for dry, frizzy hair Price: Rs 190 for 450 ml Image source: Dabur website
