My hair's been bleached for almost three years at this point and this is one of the products I still have around. Yes, I know the price tag is pretty hefty, but as in any review for a slightly pricer but amazing product, a little goes a long way. You saw that coming, didn't you? Seriously, I just need two pumps of British M's Organic Annatto Hair Oil for my usually long hair — or I use just one pump if I'm only applying to my ends — and voilà, my hair is smoothed out and looking much less frayed. It absorbs quickly, doesn't feel heavy, and doesn't make my hair look limp and greasy after the fact. (And this is coming from someone who has a slight phobia of oil-based products that *stay* in my hair or skin.)
So the proof that this hair oil ~werks~ lies in the day after. I've always hated the way my hair looks and feels the day it's washed — it's kinda poofy and unruly. I've tried a few leave-in conditioners and mists, but they haven't done much. But after using this oil, my hair is SO DANG SOFT. I can't stop touching my hair because it's feathery light, smooth as silk, and — *drumroll please* — there are no knots! The formula's organic pumpkin seed and argan oil also help give my hair an extra boost of shine, plus added protection from the sun (a main culprit behind faded, dull color). Say it with me, it's possible to have healthy-looking bleached hair!
Get it from Costco for $42.99 or Soko Glam for $67.
If you're looking for a cheaper option (totally gotchu), I use Mise En Scene and it's great as well.
