Couture Colour's Pequi Oil is a nautral oil derived from the pequi fruit, a fruit native to the Amazon Rain Forest. This oil is claimed to be "rich in moisture restoring antioxidants, vitamins A&E, and nutrients that help maintain hair's health, colour, and radiance". Couture Colour says that this oil, which is 95% organic, will "tame frizz, mend split ends, revive dry, brittle hairs, and has a natural UV filter to keep colour vibrant, fresh looking." Couture Colour offers three sizes of Pequi Oil, .5fl oz ($12), 2fl oz ($32), and 4fl oz ($50). This is some pricey stuff! I got a little .5fl oz (15ml) sample bottle in my October Ipsy bag. Couture Colour products can be bought through the brand's website and at Sephora. This brand does not test on animals. This hair oil was made in America. This hair oil has pretty nice packaging for only being a sample. A translucent, plastic sepia bottle is toppoed off with a black screw on cap. This bottle is recyclable. Unscrewing the cap reveals a small tab that acts as a stopper. Popping that little tab up reveals a small hole. You'd think, as an oil, this stuff would just pour righto ut and be a mess, but pouring product out isn't as easy as you'd think it'd be; it actually takes a few shakes to get an adequate amount out. The label that wraps around the bottle is grey, and is still firmly affixed despite it's exposure to oil. The label features the name of the product on the front, and directions, warnings, and ingredients on the back. My hair can get a little greasy, so putting more oil in it didn't sound like a good idea to me, but like a good little blogger I put this oil treatment to the test. Couture Colour's Pequi Oil is a viscose, but not thick, clear oil. This stuff smells exactly like Biscoff cookies to me. Nom! This hair oil is no where near as greasy as I predicted. Come to think about, nothing about this oil is anything like what I expected. Do I honestly think that this Pequi Oil mends split ends and gives me hair thats "600% stronger and 250% shinier after just one application"? No, that's bull. But I love what this oil does for my hair, regardless. Its suggested that this product is applied before shampooing, styling, or blow drying, but I like to work this hair oil in after a thorough brushing on a day in between washings. The oil absorbs almost instantly, but the results aren't quite as fast acting. I don't notice the full results from this oil til the next day (I tend to apply it at night). The next morning, when I brush my hair out, my hair is superbly shiny, silky, and so easy to work with, it actually makes me want to do something other than just put my hair up in a ponytail. This treatment doesn't make my hair oily either. The best part is that the results last for about two days in my hair. I apply Couture Colour's Pequi Oil twice a week and it has really improved my hair's texture and it gives me a small confidence boost. Plus it makes my hair smell like one of the most delicious and underrated cookies ever. I really, really like Couture Colour's Pequi Oil! It wasn't what I thought it would be, it's much better! This product has really piqued my interest in trying other hair oils. If Argan or Moroccan oils are anything like Pequi oil, than I can totally understand the hype. While I don't believe this product's outrageous claims (we've had this talk before about split end mending), I do like the results it delivers. Sadly I won't be purchasing this product due to the price. I will continue to use and enjoy Couture Colour's oil, I still have at least 3/4 of the bottle left even though I use it frequently. I definitely recommend Couture Colour's Pequi Oil if you can afford it.
