Wella SP Luxe Oil Elixir

Hello Beauties! 

Another hair oil you gasp? It's safe to say with my hairdressing background I do love hair products, and trying new one's is perhaps one of my favourite things to do. I was sent this one from the lovely people over a

Wella are a brand I'm pretty familiar with as it's a professional brand used widely in lots of salons around the world. Having such a well known name you can expect good things from it which I need. This Luxe Oil* claims to do a whole number of magical things. One thing I really like about this bottle is it's appearance, made with heavy glass and metallic gold lettering it not only feels really luxurious but it also looks great just about anywhere you put it. It also comes with a handy pump so there is no wastage. 

The oil isn't actually that thick at all but you only need the tiniest amount unless of course your hair is really damaged, infused with 3 times more keratin(the main protien in our skin and nails). This is actually where I don't like this product, if your hair is damaged(broken mid-lengh, frizzing, fried or has the texture of chewing gum) you do need that added keratin but if like me you only have split ends and your structure is fine, I'd probably opt for a nut oil(e.g Argan). This however is completely personal and I know some people love the extra keratin, I just also want to add its not just this product I don't like keratin in it's every product I've tried, it leaves my hair really lank and weighed down.

However I did find some good points to this hair oil, one being after applying to wet hair my hair dried in half the time it usually takes, which is a massive help for me as my hair has grown long blow drying has become so laborious. I also loved how soft it made my hair feel, I also felt as though it had 'plumped' each hair giving my hair an almost fluffy texture which I actually liked as my hairs all one length and trying to get the smallest amount of volume is hard work! 

So all in all, I think this hair oil would be perfect for people with really damaged hair due to over processing or bleach, I love using hair oil? What's  your favourite?
