Oil me up

I have never tried a hair oil treatment before. So, naturally as any fashion/beauty blogger would do, I oiled myself up, well my hair anyway. My product of choice was 'V05 give me moisture hot oil'.

The application is simple: hold the capsule under the shower or in the bath to heat it up, then apply to hair for a minute before washing off and partaking in the usual shampoo/conditioner routine. Post-treatment, pre-shampoo, my hair was noticeably smooth. The oil replenishes dry and damaged hair-which, no thanks straighteners+Winter winds my hair did need. After I had styled my hair I didn't see a big difference, however, but healthy hair needs moisture so I assumed the product had worked to repair my hair as it was a little smoother. However,seeing pictures of before and after the treatment the difference in shine, gloss and just general healthiness is noticeable!

Before (left) and after (right):

Verdict-The weekly treatment takes minimal effort, which is always a plus in my eyes. A great product for adding oomph and shine to hair. The capsules are great ideas as they allow just the right amount of product to be applied so oily, greasy hair wasn't a major problem. Remember though, when it comes to hair oils I am a novice!

Have you used this product? How does it compare to other hair oils?

The top five hair tracks I swear by:

  1. Leave conditioner on whenever possible. I try to leave it on for about two minutes before washing it off-leaves hair so soft.
  2. Salt spray! Whether you want to add some oomph to poker straight hair, or perfect your bedhead look. It doesn't have to be expensive, beauty shop's own brands are great. I use Superdrug's version. Beach hair in winter? Check!
  3. When you have a day off, a lazy day if possible avoid the straighteners give your hair a well deserved rest!
  4. Once a week treat your hair to a hair mask, there are plenty of treatments to choose, whether you want repair, hydration, nourishment, protection. Sit back in the bath and grab a magazine and a glass of wine for the ultimate relaxation.
  5.  Finally, eat well. Vitamins and nutrients are key to healthy hair, as is drinking plenty of water.

What are your hair commandments?
