My hair never really got the attention it deserved from me. I've been so busy trying to tame my skin issues, thinking about hair related things was definitely not on my mind at all. Plus, apparently I'm "blessed" with super straight hair (that's what my friends keep telling me), while I was admiring their voluminous curls. But other than that I never had major problems with my hair. Though, now that I've been through quite a few different hair colours, my hair is not as shiny as it used to be. Especially this winter, I noticed how dull and dry it looked in comparison to before. However, I'm not a hair expert, so I didn't really know how to tackle this problem. But when OGX asked me to try out their new Hydrate + De-Frizz Kukui Oil Collection*, I was immediately on board. I don't have any issues with frizzy hair, but I was hoping to recover my glossy hair with the hydration it promises. The range contains kukui nut oil, which was used in ancient Hawaii to waterproof wooden goods and surf boards. Used in haircare, it is supposed to repel humidity and seals in moisture, resulting in frizz-free and shiny hair. All these stories about secret ingredients and gorgeous hair sound miraculous, but I want to see physical results, not pretty words!
So I've been using the kukui oil shampoo, conditioner and anti-frizz hydrating oil for 3 weeks now and I have to say: I'm really impressed with the results! My hair looks so much glossier and healthier than before. The fact that I even noticed is quite the accomplishment, because I'm the kind of girl that didn't even notice, when one of her friends had braces for a year, until someone else pointed it out! Every two days I'd shampoo my hair, towel dry it a little and then work in the conditioner. While I'd wait for the conditioner to do it's magic, I usually cleanse my face in the meantime. After rinsing everything out properly, I'd blow dry my hair and then finish off with the de-frizz oil. It was really easy to shampoo my hair with this range, considering organic products tend to have a harder time with foaming up. My hair smelt really great afterwards and the conditioner and oil made my hair even glossier.
The conclusion: I'm not an expert, but a Sulfate free and reasonable priced product that gives you glossy hair, what else would you want?
You can buy the OGX Hydrate + De-Frizz Kukui Oil Collection* for £6.99 from Waitrose. (And right now they have a 3 for 2 offer!)
