Pooka Pure & Simple Nectar Hail Oil ($14) is awesome!
It’s a natural oil containing pretty scents like lavender, peppermint, and lemon. I ordered my bottle off the internet, but I hear it’s sold at Whole Foods.
I was slightly skeptical about trying this hot oil treatment because I already have slightly oily hair to begin with, but I’m always in search of new beauty products to try so I decided to go for it.
I heated up a few tablespoons in the microwave for a couple seconds (it gets hot quickly!) then dumped it on my head. I’ve got A LOT of hair, so I had to go back and heat up more oil in order to cover my whole head. Then, I wrapped my head in a plastic bag (I couldn’t find a scarf or towel handy) and waited for about 15 minutes.
After that I shampooed and conditioned my hair, per usual.
This oil works!! After blow drying my hair it was definitely shiner and not oily-feeling. I wish I had taken a picture – it reminded me of the shiny unreal hair in commercials!
PROS: It smells amazing, it’s inexpensive, its really idiot-proof. I think this would be a perfect product for someone with over processed or dry hair. I bet it could be used once a week with great results! Someone with my type of hair (prone to being oily) would only need it every few months.
CONS: If you have a lot of hair, you may go though this small-ish bottle quickly. It’s a little messy and requires some finesse when applying or else you’ll get it all over like I did.
Overall, I recommend it!
