Anna: So I thought this was a rather odd idea, applying oil to your hair then washing it out. But don’t get me wrong, I’m sort of obsessed with using beauty oils so I was definitely up for this one. So after reading the instructions, I shook this stuff right onto my roots, then massaged my scalp to spread out the oil. It smells sort of lemon-losangey but not unpleasant. After that, just as the box instructed me, I waited 10 minutes before jumping in the shower. My main concern was all the oil at my scalp– I didn’t want to shower and have my hair dry greasy or weigh it down. Anyways, I shampooed, conditioned, and after it dried, my hair felt and looked really nice– moisturized, shiny, but still bouncy and light. However, I usually go at least two days before my next wash, and I felt that after using this product, my hair got greasier a bit faster. Although I don’t always have the time for this one, the results were truly effective and the whole process feels quite luxurious and relaxing.
Amanda: I was really nervous that this was going to make my hair really oily, but I actually found that it helped balance my hair’s natural oils–I was able to wait 3 days before a wash as my hair wasn’t nearly as greasy as usual. I actually really liked the smell–citrus-y, soothing and a little bit herbal (I do love honey-lemon Strepsils). I will definitely keep using this as it is supposed to increase scalp health and circulation, which is always a great thing in the cold, dry winter months. It is also supposed to enhance hair growth by deeply cleansing the scalp and strengthening hair from the root, another benefit! I will keep using this as I need long, mermaid locks for my wedding.
