Do you want your hair to shine bright like a diamond? Well lucky for you, I chose four hair products I have used over the years to make my hair shiny and smooth! I usually rub these oils and serums (not all four at once) on my hair before or after I straighten it. And being a person who has difficult, unmanageable, and curly hair, these products really work! I’ll review them in the order I was introduced to them.
Kerastase Oleo-Relax: My aunt, who is a hairstylist, first introduced me to this hair oil. The salon she works at used to carry a lot of Kerastase products so she would show me all of them. I absolutely love all Kerastase products but this one was my first favorite. It did exactly what it’s called. It relaxed my crazy hair! I used a tiny amount and polished it on my hair after the straitening.
Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Renewal: I actually started using this product because I won it! Every year my friend’s family has a scavenger hunt for Easter and my team won! In the treasure chest there were a bunch of prizes for girls so I picked this one. As soon as I used it, I immediately fell in love. It makes my hair very silky. I carefully pour a little in the palm of my hand and rub it on starting from the middle of my hair to the ends.
Sojourn Serum Smooth: This product is not so oily since it is a serum. It is more like a lotion for your hair. Being that, you can use a little more of it at a time. I usually apply this on BEFORE straightening. I massage it all through my hair (especially my ends). I noticed it helped me straighten my hair better. My hair is very dry due to me bleaching it so this product really helps.
Mythic Oil: Love love love! This product is liquid gold! A couple months ago my aunt did my hair and she used this oil just before blow drying it. And my hair never felt softer! I sometimes smooth this on even if I don’t plan on straightening my hair. It relaxes and de-frizzes my natural hair. And a bonus is that is smells great!
*Note* A little goes a LONG way with oils. You want to make your hair look healthy and shiny not greasy. If you put too much on, especially towards your roots, it will look like you haven’t washed your hair. Your hair has natural oils, so you don’t want to over do it. Plus if you have very thin hair be extra careful. You just got to try what works for your hair type. 🙂
