Hair Oils: Macadamia and VO5
The smell is light but really lovely, the bottle is glass and I love that it has a pump which makes it easier to dispense the oil.
The label instructs you to work a small amount in damp or dry hair and for extra nourishment you can add a small amount to your favourite hair mask which I am yet to try but sounds like a good idea. It states that it instantly absorbs into the hair, weightlessly infusing moisture, health, softness, protection, control and shine.
The VO5 miracle concentrate elixir with argan oil was purchased after hearing so much about it via blogs and you tube videos and it was also on a special offer in Boots at the time so I thought why not? Plus I like that it's smaller than my Macadamia bottle which makes it better for travelling purposes. It has a pipette which is fantastic for controlling the amount you want to dispense, nothing worse than a product in annoying packaging that gives you too much product! Again this smells really nice, a slightly stronger scent than the Macadamia oil.
The label has no instructions on how to use it but I guess it's fairly obvious but it does say that the elixir is high in Vitamin E, Rich in Anti-Oxidants which help fight free radicals and is hydrating and deeply conditioning.
Macadamia oil is much more expensive it retails at whopping £29.95 for 125ml on websites like lookfantastic but I'd suggest looking on ebay. The VO5 however is much more affordable although it's a smaller 50ml bottle but has the price tag of around £4.99
As I haven't been using VO5 for as long I can't make a judgement on which one is better but I really like both of them, they both make my hair feel nourished and smooth. I do want to point out however that both the products contain 'cones which can be good and bad for your hair so if your looking for pure oils I'd avoid these.
Do you use any hair oils? If so which ones?
