I don’t know about you but with all the hair styling and heat that has been thrown at my hair in full force, it’s left feeling quite dry so when the lovely team at Alchemy Oils wanted to send me one of their Hair Remedy Oils, I jumped at the chance. All of the oils that they sell are packed full of nutrients that help to achieve various things depending on the oil.
I decided to go for the Alchemy Oils Alma Hair Remedy as the blend of coconut, avocado and argan oils help to promote growth, strengthen and condition hair. It also contains a splash of lemon oil to shine and naturally cleanse the hair. It all sounds wonderful and I couldn’t wait to give it a go. Amla is a powerful hair tonic from the Indian Gooseberry. It is known to stimulate the hair follicle to encourage growth. It nourishes the hair by adding strength and sheen, cleansers the scalp to prevent dandruff and provides the perfect environment for long and healthy hair. The vitamin C can help to treat dry, itchy scalps because is it very rich in antioxidants. These antioxidants carry anti-ageing mechanisms that prevent grey hairs.
Firstly, you can use the remedy as a light serum which is what I tried first. I washed my hair as usual and instead of using the Paul Mitchells Serum that I have been using for months. I put the tiniest amount of oil on my hand, rubbed it between my palms and smoothed through the ends of my hair. The first thing I noticed was how good is smells! If any of you are familiar with the citrus scented bath bombs from Lush then you will love the scent of this because it’s so uplifting and the scent lasts all day because it’s so strong. After drying my hair and styling it for the day – it looked a lot shinier and smoother. I have been trying to delay washing my hair so that it can grow. I’ve heard that this technique works best. Using the oil as a serum, delayed my usual wash by an extra day because my hair still looked smooth and healthy.
Next up, I tried it as a hair mask. I applied a generous amount of oil all over my hair, working from the roots to the tips, and massaged it into the scalp. I left it on over night and then washed it out with my usual shampoo and conditioner. Even whilst I was in the shower, my hair felt a lot more smooth and nourished. When my hair was fully it dried, it looked beautiful! The shine was gorgeous and healthy. It felt super light and really clean.
Overall, I definitely think that the oil worked best as an overnight mask rather than a serum but either way it made my hair look so healthy. One thing I do have to say is that I wish it had a pump or something so it was easier for the product to come out of the bottle. To get the smallest amount, I had to put my whole hand on top of the bottle and make sure that I carefully lifted it away without getting to much product. This is really the only negative thing I have to say about the product and other than that I loved it. The packaging is very luxurious and the effects it has on my hair is amazing. The oil retails at £27.00 and can be purchased from their website alchemyoils.co.uk.
