Hey Guys, I have been struggling with extremely dry ends recently, and had no idea what to do! I mean, my hair is in pretty bad condition and really try to look after it well. I don’t straighten it often, I hardly ever blow dry it, I cant put it up because its too short, I try not to play with it during the day, and I use a good shampoo and conditioner. I was completely stumped on what to do, till a work colleague told me about hair oil! I figured I would give one a go, there was a lot to choose from when I went looking, and settled on the Mixed Roots Oil. Here is what I think:
First off when I put some into my hand – with the pump which I really appreciate because I can only imagine how messy it would get if I had to pour it! The scent coming off the product was amazing, It smelt nothing like oil, which I had first expected! It smelt a lot more like strawberries, and lime, and all things summer and fruity! It was pretty strong, and at first I didn’t know how to take it, but I decided I liked it! The product itself felt pretty moisturising, so I was holding a lot of hope for this. I then mixed the product between both of my hands, only one pump at first, then took the product to the ends of my dry hair. I made sure I got most of it by brushing it through afterwards. My hair looked great, it smelt great and felt a lot softer.
About half hour later I then noticed the roots of hair looking super greasy, I mean a week without washing greasy! It was disgusting, I hasn’t actually planned on washing my hair that night as I know an oil is a leave in treatment. I wasn’t to let the oil do its work before I washed the excess product out, but I just couldn’t! My hair looked greasy, and lifeless. I don’t know how anyone could put this on their hair and keep it there. So I washed my hair, and tried it again with my hair a little damp. Exactly the same thing happened – I don’t know whether I am applying too much, only 1 pump!
Overall, I think the scent is great, the packaging is lovely – I love the fact it has a pump, but the actual product itself has really let me down!
If you use a hair oil I would love to know which one in the comments below! Or even how to give my hair a little more life, and less damage! Thanks for reading, Jade xo
