I am extremely lucky to be blessed with naturally good hair, which behaves needing just a 5 minute morning meeting with the hair straighteners. Despite not over using heat products my hair is quite long and very thick. It is easily prone to flyaways, dryness and can often lack moisture.
This product claims it would take my hair on a tropical vacation with a blend of Tahitian gardenias and coconut oil, and would help to hydrate and strengthen my hair, leaving it feeling nourished, moisturised and revived. It also claims it is suitable for all hair types and is free from sulfates, parabens, phthalates, gluten and drying alcohol. What more could you ask of a product? Oh yes it’s also cruelty free!
I followed the instructions on the product packaging initially, which stated to use a pea sized amount of the product. After a couple of days I noticed my hair felt soft but didn’t really look any shinier. I upped the amount to the size of a 5p and this has worked much better. If you have super thick hair or really dry hair I would recommend using a little more than what is stated. The product is applied directly to lengths and ends of your hair, after a shower or when your hair is damp. I tried both methods and found the product worked better when the hair was damp and not too wet, as the water prevented the product full absorbing. My routine with this product is to towel dry, comb hair, apply the product and comb through with my fingers.
It is really easy to disperse through your hair and your not left with any residue on your hands or clumps in your hair. Please don’t be put off by the product being advertised as an oil it is more of a cream and extremely light.
It took a couple of days for me to see noticeable results so make sure you stick with this product, because it is definitely worth it. My hair is now velvety soft and does appear to be shiner and more healthier looking. The pictures below were taken a week apart, before and after using the product. Even though the second picture has more light I really it has made a difference.
In terms of the scent it didn’t evoke the mini tropical vacation I thought it would. The coconut is very mild and can’t be smelt on your hair, perfect if you don’t like over powering fragrances.
If you have dry, damaged or frizzy hair I would really recommend this product but make sure you use the right amount for your hair type, length and damage state. If your hair isn’t particular damaged but you want to use a product to keep the damage at bay I would use it weekly rather than daily, especially if you hair is prone to becoming oily.
Let me know in the comments if you have tried this product before and what experiences you have had with oil creams?
