When it comes to hair, I find all natural treatments are really the way to go! I usually get better results and they truly do treat the hair as opposed to masking them with silicones and waxes. One of my favourite treatments is Live Clean Bali Oil Restorative Hair Treatment. Is it Natural? Boy is it ever! This product is 98% plant derived, pure vegan and paraben free. Here is a full list of the ingredients in this moisturizing powerhouse (I added the bold words to explain ingredients in plain english!):
Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) oil, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Fruit Extract*, Elaeis Guineesis (Palm) Oil, Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Seed Extract*, Cera Alba (Beeswax), Parfum, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Protein, Tocopherol (Vitamin E). *Certified Organic
As you can see this product only contains one questionable ingredient – and to be honest, it makes this treatment smell absolutely divine! It reminds me of my trips to Hawaii which is always a pick-me-up! Plus, personally I’m not as concerned about that with products that are quickly rinsed out of hair. Not only is this product super natural but it also contains a handful of organic ingredients which is always a bonus. And yet another added benefit is it is super affordable and readily available!
Is it Effective? This product is incredibly effective! I have wavy/curly, thick but fine hair that tangles at the drop of a hat. Not only that but it is super long (past my bust line!) so there’s a lot of hair to get tangled, dry and damaged. I also colour treat my hair which causes drying and damage but I limit my heat exposure to blow dryers, curling irons and flat irons to once a week or so (mostly because I’m lazy and it takes forever to blow dry my hair). So, there is definite need for improvement in the damage department and this does it overnight!
This oil is easy and a pleasure to use! You only need a small amount (about half a teaspoon) to cover even my long hair with enough oil. Once you scoop it out of the container (it comes as a solid) you rub it between your hands to make it an oil, then apply. You can use it for 5-10 mins or as an overnight treatment to repair very damaged hair. You can also apply heat from your blow dryer to really activate it like a hot oil treatment! I use it as an overnight treatment and rinse it out in the morning – or I apply it to my hair and sit in the sun to let it heat up and penetrate – by the way it rinses easily as well and doesn’t leave hair weighed down or greasy.
I’m very impressed with the results this has given me each time, super shiny, soft and manageable hair that doesn’t seem to tangle as easily as if I didn’t use it. Even if you don’t need a deep condition (which I’m sure most of you do!) I would suggest you use this just for the smell alone! My boyfriend loves it and it lingers for hours – maybe even to your next shampoo! I definitely recommend this treatment!
