There are some beauty rituals which I rarely do and others which I do all the time. A weekly face mask and hair oil treatment are two that I do every week without fail, usually at the same time much to my husband’s amusement. I am passionate about pure plant based oils and their benefits for our skin and hair so when I was contacted my Amandeep from Alchemy oils I was excited to make the connection. Amandeep and her sister have always used oils as part of their haircare regime and it is integral to Indian culture and so they decided to develop a hair oil that would suitable for all hair types.
Their beautiful blend comes in a very classy glass bottle, the packaging and the branding undoubtedly make a good impression from the get go. Whilst the packaging is beautiful, for practical application purposes I decant a small amount in to a plastic bottle with a small nozzle to make sure I don’t spill any precious oil. The Grapefruit hair remedy is made up of five oils, coconut, avocado, sweet almond oil, castor oil and grapefruit essential oil. Coconut oil and avocado oil are already two of my favourite oils for your hair, coconut is one the oils that has been found to penetrate the hair and helps repair it, avocado is also deeply nourishing and strengthens the hair. The oil in this blend that I haven’t used before is castor oil, but is a very light oil which has anti-fungal, anti-viral and anti-bacterial qualities, whilst also improving circulation making it absolutely fantastic for the scalp. The grapefruit essential oil give it a love citrus scent but is also said to stimulate the hair follicles.
I have really enjoyed using this hair oil, it is light and easy to rinse away, I love the fact that this is pre-blended with some of my favourite ingredients making things easy for me, especially at the moment as I am too busy to mix my own. I have found my hair to be growing really thick and strong lately and I am sure that this alongside the Body Deli shampoo I have been raving about have been responsible. If you have never used an oil on your hair you are missing out, although it may seem a scary thing to do there is really no need to be worried, I like to take a small amount of oil at a time and rub it in to my scalp and through the ends of my hair and allow to absorb, the longer you leave it on the better. This blend is quite light so I think it would be suitable for all hair types, if you are prone to very oily roots then you can apply to just the ends, but I tend to think that oils can balance oil production so it is worth trying on the scalp too to get all the benefits.
If you are on the lookout for an oil blend for your hair then I highly recommend this one from Alchemy oils, it’s always great to support a small business that is just starting out and you can tell the founders of this brand are really passionate about what they are doing. Do you use oils on your hair?
