Coconut Milk Anti-Breakage Serum
3.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I said I wouldn't buy it again, but that's mostly because of my tendency to not repurchase anything unless it becomes a HG product. I'm also looking more for UV and heat protection now that I'm actually starting to heat style my hair sometimes again. (I haven't really even used a hair dryer very often for like 10 years, so I was mostly using this on my hair as it air dried until about a month ago.) I haven't really looked into the ingredients to see if this actually does anything more than put a bandaid on the issue of dryness and the like, but I definitely notice a difference in my hair when I use this versus when I don't, and I do like it for the most part. Is it really doing anything for my hair beyond making it look better? Maybe not. My guess is the silicone makes my hair look nicer at the time, but that could be it. However, I think that this has helped prevent breakage because my hair tangles way less when I use it (again, probably because of the silicones making my hair smoother). So, I think it helps my hair a bit, but I really haven't done enough research into silicone-containing products to form an opinion beyond that. I think more research, in general, is needed. I have very fine, totally straight hair, but I also have a lot of hair and I usually keep it kind of long, to around mid-back (give or take a couple of inches). My hair gets dry very easily and can start to break, and it just looks awful, so I try to almost exclusively use moisturizing products. The problem with that is how heavy some of those products can be, which isn't great when you have hair that refuses to hold volume. But this stuff? As long as I don't go overboard, it doesn't weigh my hair down, and I notice an immediate improvement in the way my hair looks and feels. I absolutely love the scent of this stuff, and I think even my husband has commented on how pleasant it is. It's not quite the same coconut-y scent you find in some tanning products and the like, but it's also not quite real coconut or coconut oil. It's kind of in between, a little sweeter than real coconut, but not overpowering. I've also only ever used this on color treated hair, and I've never noticed any problems with my color fading faster, whether it was permanent dyes or something like Manic Panic. Pros: -Smells nice and not too strong -Makes my hair look and feel smoother -Fewer tangles/easier time brushing my hair -Adds a little shine -Doesn't feel heavy/weigh my hair down (although it might with curls, but it's hard to tell because my hair doesn't easily hold a curl anyway) -Doesn't feel greasy or weird -Hasn't faded my dyed hair -Doesn't seem to build up in my hair/washes out easily Cons: -I think this might sometimes cause me to break out where my hair touches my face while I sleep

Coconut Water Weighless Hydration Oil

Packaging : Transparent bottle presents with a splash of coconut water which illustrates well of what is the contain of this hair oil. It comes with spray nozzle which sadly, it does not function that well as I need to press hard (like the nozzle gets stuck somewhere and it does not spray evenly like fine mist) to spray out the hair oil onto my palm - a coin size of oil, not fine mist. Price : Quite pricey but I do not mind buying because I really cannot resist myself from OGX hair products especially hair oil/serum. I bought it online (qoo10) quite sometime ago which again, sadly, the seller, USA Seller no longer exists. Oil Texture : Hey! Do not freak out just because it is oil! OGX claims that it is weighless which is very true and once I spray out the oil onto my palm and start to warm it by rubbing my palms together, it dries up very quickly! So no fear that it might overweight your hair to make it looks like oil slick. It is something very light and hydrating enough. You do not have to worry of over using it if you have hair texture like me - dry, straw and frizzy hair. Scent : Lovely coconut scent - it smell so sweet with warm coconut scent. Anyone who likes coconut by-products will surely falls for this hair oil! It is not overpowering if you are wearing perfume on your body/clothes but just itself alone, can work out well like a hair perfume! Verdict : An overall good performed hair oil with coconut oil, coconut water and electrolytes which in my opinion, it can use alone by itself if you do not use with its matching shampoo and conditioner. I personally need 5 - 6 sprays of oil for my middle length hair which is very dry and untamed. The oil dries up very fast and it means all the coconut goodness can soak up perfectly into the hair cuticles, rather than just sitting on it. Electrolytes is a key ingredient which 'recharge' and hydrate your hair but this oil is not strong enough to prove sufficient moisture and hydration to my hair. It does create a bit of healthy shine (but my hair is still dry, with frizz and tangles abit) on my hair although nothing too amazing as I fantasize so much of hair product commercial kinda mirror shiny hair. This hair oil might not be a hit for someone who really needs moisturizing hair oil for very dry hair because I myself mix using this hair oil with my other types of hair oi (The Body Shop Olive Nourishing Dry Oil, Sephora All-in-One Nourishing Oil followed by this OGX Coconut Water Weighless Hydration Oil and a bit of mineral oil to block the moisture from humid weather to enter into my hair cuticles and reactivate the crazy frizziness. If you are a huge OGX fans like me, you may give this product a try.
