You know a product is working for you when you notice a difference when you stop using it. I found this out the hard way a few weeks ago when I left my L’Oreal Mythic Hair oil at home. My hair felt dry and far less manageable and I knew I needed to get myself a new bottle of hair oil.
As much as I would have loved to purchase myself a bottle of Moroccan oil, as a student my bank balance wouldn’t have appreciated it, so I went on a hunt for a more affordable replacement. I’d read a bit about the VO5 miracle elixir on a few blogs and thought for £5 I may as well give it a go until I manage to go home and pick up my bottle of L’Oreal oil. The VO5 Miracle elixir contains Argan oil which has many uses from oil for dipping bread into to skin care. It seems to be the ‘must have’ oil of late.
The packaging is pretty simple: A plastic bottle with a plastic pipette to dispense the oil. I like the idea of the pipette as you can control how much you want to use, however I do find that the oil can run out of the pipette before you can dispense it in your hand. This can be a little messy but for the price I don’t think you can complain too much and it’s something you can get to grips with easily.
For the price tag I wasn’t expecting wonders, but I have to say I’m really impressed. The oil is light and doesn't leave the hair looking greasy and leaves my hair soft, shiny and manageable. One thing that I love is the smell. From the oils I've tried they seem to have a smell that I can only describe as manly. This doesn't and I personally think smells amazing. I just run a pipette of the oil through my hair after blow drying or styling and two to three pipettes through as a treatment about twice a week.
I’ve definitely noticed a difference in the three weeks I've been using it and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to try hair oil without the huge price tag! It comes in 50 ml bottles and I found mine in Tesco, although I’m sure you can find it in most Boots and Superdrug stores.
