TAHIRA'S TOP THREE: HAIR OILS
I have Dry Hair. In fact, I have dry everything, but I digress….I have been dying my hair for a few years now, so the ends get dry, but the roots are fine. That, combined with my natural wave and london water, my hair can go frizzy and ratty-looking fairly easily. I also very rarely DO my hair, often opting for leaving my wavy hair in my Boucleme Organic Cotton for a bit, putting in some serum and then letting my hair dry naturally.
I like oils that can be used on towel dried hair, that I then leave in as a treatment. I am very wary of most Serums on the market, as they contain a lot of silicone which only coats the hair, making it appear softer for a while, and then drying it out in the long run. Here are my top three Hair Serum Treatments right now.
Alchemy Oil Grapefruit Hair Remedy : I love the fresh scent of this oil I have tried it only once the intended way, which is to leave it overnight as a mask. I have used it often on wet, damp or dry hair to reduce frizz. A little goes a long way for styling, but I love the Ritual aspect that Alchemy Oils Promote, to take time for some self care. This blend is intended to thicken and strengthen hair, perfect for New Mums experiencing hair loss 3 months Post Partum.
Evolve Nourishing Hair Elixir : This Light Oil-Serum absorbs quickly without leaving hair greasy or heavy. I would not recommend it for very fine hair, but it really softens frizz. I have used it on damp hair that I then air-dry as well as a finishing “Gloss” on my dry hair. Really keep this away from the roots tough, as I think it is too rich and may “weigh down” the Hair.
Tabitha James Kraan 4 in 1 Conditioner : I mean seriously, this product does EVERYTHING but the dishes. It can be used as a Rinse-Out or Leave-in Conditionner, and it can be used on Damp Hair as a Styling Aid or as a Finishing AND it can be used as a dry scalp treatment! I have tried the Citrus scent which is lovely, but it also comes in Amber Rose and in a travel size perfect for your hand bag on particularly frizz inducing days! I prefer it as a styling product than a rinse out conditionner, but that is because of the texture of my hair.
