“You put oil on your hair? Seriously!” “Of course, before I shampoo…” “Ah right, I see!” “And whenever it starts to get too dry.” “Weird!” I’ve had similar conversation many times – even with people who have frizzy hair themselves. I think that’s weird, ha!
Who are Roots & Rituals?
Roots and Rituals are an independent company who see hair care as pampering time for your head and not just a necessity. They use natural ingredients and their products are silicone, mineral oil, SLS, paraben and artificial fragrance free.
About The Product
Deep Conditioning Hair Oil £15.99 (cost and postage) 100ml ‘Pure and carefully selected ancient hair oils to create a truly effective ritual for both hair and scalp. Coconut, olive & avocado oils penetrate deeply into the hair shaft to lock in moisture. Amla, almond and sesame oils nourish and hydrate the scalp to help promote optimal hair growth. Argan, hibiscus and basil oils condition and repair the cuticle (outer layer of hair strands).’
How I Used It
I waited until I had an hour to myself and gave myself a soothing scalp massage with the oil. I also gently rubbed plenty into the very dry ends of my hair. I washed my hair as normal and then let it dry in the sunshine. When my hair was still damp I rubbed a tiny little bit between my palms and gently rubbed it onto the ends of my hair.
My hair is still damp in places
Now my hair is dry
I didn’t use any heat styling products or balms or curl cream. I was seriously impressed! I apologise that the bottom picture is slightly out of focus my Mum took it and she’s not used to my camera. It’s the first time I’ve not needed to flatten fly-away hairs at my roots with small hair straighteners. My hair is still like this two days later despite really bad humidity. In this climate I usually end up looking like Monica from that episode of Friends or Cousin IT or Side Show Bob from the Simpsons!
- Wonderfully effective mixture of oils
- The push and tip lid distributes one drop of oil at a time so you won’t spill it
- I think the packaging looks cute and quite bohemian
- The lid can be pressed open when the product is in the post but the packaging is so secure it won’t leak outside of the envelope.
- I really didn’t find the scent appealing but my hair only smelled of the oil for a few hours and if you’re applying before washing only, then it won’t matter anyway.
