Hair is an essential part of our beauty. It talks "volume", "shine" and "health" of our styling and grooming. Maybe that is why we heard "a bad hair day" and not a "bad lipstick day" or bad "rouge day".
Upkeeping of hair in today's age of busy life, stress, pollution and harsh chemicals, has become a huge a challenge. On top of that, the beeline of products in the market makes the task tougher. Decades back, people would know only a thing or two about hair care and they were all natural. Today, however, if you go to market, you are most likely to be flooded with advice on "things" that you can do "for" your hairs including buying this shampoo, going for that Spa, that medicine, that treatment and so on.
Though I tried multiple such "therapies" and may keep trying some more in my life but my hair care regime remains simple and fixed till date. i.e. Oiling, Shampooing and Conditioning... all Twice in a week, in the same order of preference.
Oiling is an essential part of my hair care. It is a regime that I am following since my childhood and I still ensure that I do oil my hair in advance before washing them. Minimum time can be half an hour and maximum can be a day as well. The day when I shampoo my hair without pre-oiling, I feel inadequate and my scalp, thirsty.
I have a very sensitive hair, sensitive than my skin. When I say sensitive, I mean, that there are very few products that suit my hair including oil. Off late, I have been very restrictive in terms of experimenting with new oils and shampoos as constant travel and change of weather, plus my stressful lifestyle makes it difficult.
When L`Oreal Paris India, approached me to review one of the new product in their International Kitty, I had my own reservations but it being L`Oreal, I relented.
I am a regular L`Oreal user whether it is hair care, skin care or makeup and had a good history with all their products. Hair oil was new for me and little hope, I agreed for the review.
Thank God, I agreed for the review. For the oil has turned very effective for me and I am all gaga over it. Before I share my experience, let me give you a quick insight on my hair condition-
1) Medium length, wavy, Black and brown, Off late Thin
2) Dandruff-prone, dry, tendency to get dull, rough [ no thanks to my travel and stress]
3) Dry to oily. However, no split ends.
4) Scared of Hair fall
Prior trying this oil, I was using Soulflower Castor Oil, mixed with Amla Oil and occasionally coconut oil. I was looking for almond oil but the pure one and not what is branded and sold in perfumed bottles in market [My brother in law used to get it from a town in Punjab and they were awesome]
L`Oreal Paris 6 Oils Nourish Oil is non-sticky, non-greasy, not too heavy laden with fragrance and worked well for my hair. Here's what I liked about this product and what I did not-
What I liked about it-
1) Non-Greasy / Nonsticky
2) Neutral Smell [ no perfumed fragrance or pungent feel]
4) Makes hair soft, shiny and smooth right from first application
5) Easy to wash and does not require shampooing twice.
6) Controls Frizz
7) Easy to apply/absorb
What I did not like
Honestly nothing much till date. Maybe you can say the- glass bottle packing. Even then I believe glass pack would be better than plastic w.r.t chemical contents used in plastics that can mix with oils as diverse as these.
Well that my personal opinion about the product and as I always maintained that my opinions are strictly personal, stated otherwise and they are not prejudiced in any manner, whatsoever. I received this product couple of months ago and I agreed to have it tried for a relatively effective period of time before posting my feedback and experience.
So if you liked what I liked and want to know more about the product, here we go-
Product: L`Oreal Paris 6 Oils Nourish Oil is a unique hair oil product [essentially for female] with a unique proposition of 6 oils [3 traditional; 3 Exotic] with 6 benefits viz-
Almond Oil Coconut Oil Olive Oil Argan oil
Camelina Oil Jojoba oil
Strong Soft Smooth Thick
Price: Priced at Rs 199/- for 100 ml, this oil makes it a worth buying, given the benefits it translates to your hair and styling.
Packaging- The oil is packed in a pretty looking transparent glass bottle with adequate labelling and branding in the tune of all products in a range of L`Oreal Paris 6 Oil Nourish [Shampoo, conditioner and mask; I am yet to try them]. The packaging looks lovely and needs to be handled with care. Also, it comes with a list of all ingredients used in this product including Mineral oil.
Place/ promotion: The oil is widely available at various supermarkets and shops including the online stores like Nykaa.com. The range was latest advertised in TV featuring their brand ambassador Katrina Kaif. [In case if she is a purchase influence for you :)]
Overall I am happy using this product and next change will try their shampoo and conditioner in the same range too. In case, I did, you may definitely find the review here. Oh yes, do I recommend this hair oil? Definitely yes.
Go buy it, cause your hair, totally worth it!
