To start with, I have dark thick straight heavy hair and loads of it. My mum used to laugh at me that I have horse hair #tuttut I used to be annoyed for this, but to be honest, now I think it is kinda good, because some of my friends suffer an incredible hair fall #sadworriedface and to me it seems that my hair even iff half of it falls out, there’s gonna be still than enough left #uff I used to dye my hair since I was 12? #longlongtimeago but the last time I dyed it was in April this year, so basically it has all washed off now and I am tryin to make my hair as healthy as possible (although I fear it gets even thicker and heavier and it will eventually squash my skull flat #worries).
Now to the actual review! If you are reading this and you are not an owner of this bottle, I beg you, drop reading this and run. And get two of them. At least. (Oh, no, I am not paid to do this! Not by VO5 nor Superdrug! #haha) It is a trully miraculous thingy.
“Elixir with Argan Oil – restorative power of an Elixir in its most potent form” Everyone is surely familiar with argan oil and what it looks like and what it is meant to do to your hair. So I skip this, and go straight to VO5. It is an intensive leave in treatment, but to be honest with you, there are millions of ways how you can use this. I personally I always put it on towel-dried hair, just one almost full pipette (or whatever that thingy is called #embarassedface) and first rub it into my hands and then rub it into the ends and middle legth of my hair. I would not put it on my scalp, unless your scalp and roots are super dry. Another way to use it is to put two or even three pipettes into full length (not roots!) of your hair and leave it there for a few hours, then wash off thoroughly. Basically every morning after I brush my hair (no tangles when you using this regularly, I swear!) I put half a pipette on my hands and rub it in the ends again. Don’t worry, it will not make your hair greasy, if you using the right amount! Finally, I do the same before I blow dry my hair or use hair straighteners. Your hair literally eats it all in, so after dryin your hair, you can rub some more in.
For those who worry that it will make your hair greasy, I promise you, it won’t as long as you use the proper amount and don’t go crazy! I think I use it more than once a day sometimes and it took me two months to get through one full bottle (50ml), the pipette measuring thingy is amazing, it would be so unractical without it and would probably make you go overboard super easily. And for £4.99 a bottle, what a bargain! (considering the usual price of Argan oil about £15?)
Finally, the results! My hair is so soft and sleek it’s unreal. My friends started commenting on my hair, how lush it looks after I’ve started using this. In my opinion, it slightly intensifies natural colour of your hair (my hair got a bit darker, although I’m not sure if there is something else in my routine or even the weather to blame). It gets rid of tangles in your hair and combats your dry ends. In a way, I think the oil seels split end, which however is not a solution for it, but at least doesn’t make them look so unhealthy. If you have any baby hair poking out, or broken off hair, this will tame them effortlessly. Ooooh, almost forgot, it smells amazing #sniffsniff Kinds of sweet but not sickly sweet and I guess it’s that kind of smell that you won’t get bored of too soon #yay
