I'm a huge fan of hair oils, I've tried various different ones & now I can't wash my hair without applying an oil to the ends afterwards! Just incase you don't know, I have thick, frizzy hair which is quite honestly the bane of my life. I am forever asking the hairdresser to thin it out instead of chopping layers in here, there & everywhere but she says I'd miss having the volume. I can assure I wouldn't! Every time I see a photo of myself my hair looks so thick around my face, it's too heavy around the top & the ends look too blunt... why do hairdressers never listen!? Anyway, I've gone off an a whole different topic, I'll save the rest for a future post maybe!
Without using a hair oil my hair would be frizz central, so I reach for whatever bottle (I have a few!) I have nearest to me which has recently been the Alchemy Oils Grapefruit Hair Remedy*. It's stored in a vintage style small glass bottle with a wooden stopper top, once the top is removed the fruity scent of Grapefruit hits you. It's a very fresh, fruity, citrusy sweet scent which I love! Removing the oil from the bottle is a bit of a tricky task as you risk it spilling everywhere so I've been dipping my finger tips in whilst it's still quite full. A tiny amount goes quite far, I rub it throughout the ends & smooth over my layers that tend to flick out & leave my hair to absorb it for a few minutes before straightening. One of my main concerns when it comes to using hair oil is the worry it might make my hair look greasy but I can confirm theres no grease in sight! I'm always careful to apply oils though but you really do only need a small amount with this one. The product contains Coconut, Avocado, Almond & Castor oils & as soon as I saw it had Coconut oil I knew it would be good! My hair feels much healthier after I use it, it's very dry & needs a lot of nourishment which this oil provides & it also adds shine so my hair looks healthier too!
