Oils have become a big part of my hair regimen lately. From using Olive Oil as a hot oil treatment to oil based products like this one from Carol Daughter stay in my hair rotation. They’re great for natural curly hair which helps keep moisture in as well as give it great shine. I would like to say that I’m pretty familiar with the types of oil that are great for your hair, but when I was asked to review Orchid Oil from White Sands, I didn’t know what to expect! I never heard of this before and wanted to know more.
Orchid Oil, formulated with Bulbophyllum sp, an orchid flower extract, promises to
- Restore your hairs moisture that has been depleted by chemical treatments, stress from heat, and UV/UVB exposure
- Keep away the frizz and bring on the shine by closing the cuticle layer of your strands
- Help define curls
I’ve used this oil for a few weeks now and one of the first things I loved about it was the fragrance. This oil smells amazing, like a light flowery perfume, perfect for spring time. The bottle looks like a perfume bottle too! The oil itself looks thick but once it’s on your hair it’s really light without being greasy, especially when it’s wet. I did get a great shine after using it but unfortunately it didn’t last all day, especially when I used it by itself. My hair did stay moisturized when I used it with my daily moisturizer especially over night. As a matter of fact, I liked the oil much better when I used it with other products, sealing in the moisture that my other products without weighing my hair down.
All in all, I liked the Orchid Oil as a finishing product.
