Since getting my hair cut (more on that experience later) I’ve been determined to treat my extremely dry hair carefully with lots of nourishing treatments, so that if I do grow it again, it won’t be a big massive frizzy hair bomb.
Olive Oil is a wonderful treatment for the hair, but I liked the look of this Skinfood Olive Hair Essence which I saw on eBay (about £8 with shipping).
The essence is a very thick oil – no messing about or thinking out there, so it goes without saying – apply cautiously. My hair is fine but there’s lots of it so I slathered it on my ends to smooth it out.
It did everything I thought it would – made my hair softer, glossier – once again, it is heavy so just a small amount is enough. It tamed frizzy ends – I used it before drying once and also when my hair was try – I preferred it before blow drying I think and the result is soft looking hair. You may want to avoid if you are trying to put in curls as this would probably make it drop out a little.
There aren’t many ingredients in this – some preservatives and good old olive oil and perfume. Made me think – is Olive oil from the rack just as good?
Well, no, because I think normal Olive Oil is great as a leave in treatment, but is too smelly (unless you like smelling like a an french dressing) and too greasy as a blow dry/finishing serum.
This product is nicely perfumed (smells flowery) and is designed to be used as a finishing product.
Verdict: I Likey!
