Hair Oils & Dove

I made a bit of a deal with myself at the beginning of the year to oil regularly. And you know what, I’ve stuck to it pretty religiously! Every Saturday night before I jump in bed, I slather myself in oil, it all sounds rather sexual, but I assure you it’s not. Previous hair oils that I have used are the Shahnaz Husain Shalocks (this one is probably my all time fave), the Organix Moroccan Light Penetrating Oil and the Organix Anti- Breakage Keratin Oil, all of which I have loved, but I fancied a change. You may have noticed that none of the hair oils mentioned come cheap, in fact they are all bloody expensive so I tried to find a cheaper alternative and ended up getting my hands on the Lotus Herbals Kera-Veda Growoil. In 3 words – I hated it. It had a strange scent of tobacco and didn’t sink into the scalp very well. Then to top it all off, it resulted in terrible hair fall. I don’t usually out poopy products on this blog, but that is certainly one that deserves a slating!

After the disappointment of that I decided to get a product that I have been eyeing up for a while – the Dove Elixir Hair Fall Rescue Hair Oil in Rose & Almond. I’m not going to lie, it was the smell of this product that drew me to it – nice rose goodness! And once I’ve applied it my hair smells subtly rosy! It’s formulated for those prone to hair fall and is supposed to help to smooth the hair. Now I haven’t experienced any extreme smoothing of the hair as yet, but I’m all for a bit of chemical-free softening, so I’ll keep you posted on that one. It sinks in the scalp quickly and leaves my hair feeling nice and nourished until I repeat my little routine the following Saturday. Next on my list is the Hibiscus & Argan Oil – anyone tried it?
