Not Nail Related: Melado Hair Oil

Wednesday 27 August 2014

As promised, today I have a very different sort of review for you... 
I was recently contacted by a lovely lady at Old Wives Tail with regards to reviewing one of their hair oil treatments. Old Wives Tail is a small hair care company selling handmade organic hair care products using absolutely no additives or chemicals. Their main goal is to eradicate animal testing in the beauty industry and they donate 10% of their profits to animal charities which I whole heartedly support! The contact couldn't have been timed better because my thick, dark, super-long hair was crying out for some love after a lot of harsh summer treatment!

I chose the Melado Hair Oil which is designed to give the kiss of life to the most dry and damaged hair. It's a mix of Olive Fruit Oil, Almond Oil, Argan Oil and Lavender Oil; it smells absolutely amazing! It's paraben free, sulfate free, gluten free and suitable for vegetarians and vegans. All of that on top of the no animal testing, made it PERFECT in my eyes.


So, this is my hair after a normal wash & condition, brush and being left to dry naturally... As you can see it's dry, frizzy and crazy long! It's so unmanageable that it spends most of the time being tightly wound in a bun, which only makes things worse! I also get a dry scalp in summer... Argggh hahaha!


This is my hair a couple of days later after a standard treatment... When it was next time to wash my hair I simply dampened it and massaged the oil into my scalp and throughout the lengths; a little goes a long way. I then wrapped it all up in a towel and left for an hour before rinsing thoroughly and washing as usual, being sure to only add conditioner to the very dry ends. Again I just brushed and left to dry naturally and this was the result! Shiny and sleek :)


I am soooo happy with this product, look at the difference!!! I've heard people rave about various hair oils in recent years but I never thought it would be this good! After just one standard weekly treatment too... You could also do an intensive treatment, using twice a week and leaving wrapped in a towel overnight rather than just the hour. The oil can also be used to tame those frizzy, flyaway's by rubbing just a drop in your palms and smoothing through the mid-lengths and ends :) all in one!

This oil is priced at £13.99 for 100ml and can be delivered worldwide for FREE! Very reasonable for this kind of result and considering the company's fantastic, enviromentally friendly values!
