Luminous Hair?♥*

Hair oils are a tricky one. People tell you not to use it because it weighs your hair down, yet others then tell you to use it because it helps your hair. I'm always paranoid to use an oil incase I use too much and make my hair greasy looking. I was a little anxious to whether or not the Wella Oil Reflections Luminous Smoothing Oil* would leave me with silky soft hair or horrifically oily hair. So, in normal beauty blogger traditions, I put it to the test.
Personally, the only hair product I use whilst my hair is damp is heat protector, so initially, I tried this after blow-drying. I didn't want to use it from root to tips, therefore decided to use it on the ends of my hair where I feel they were most dry and damaged. One pump was plenty for half my hair, I soon discovered. I was expecting it to be thick, but it's the polar opposite to my expectations. It's on the thin and runny side, which I have came to deciding I love. After I use it on the ends of my hair, I like to brush through it, just to make sure it's evenly spread. Due to it being so runny, I realised it feels quite oily on your hands and found out that it's best to wash your hands before even attempting to brush your hair.

There is a strong, distinct scent that I believe to be rather familiar but can't pin point as to what it is or reminds me of - it's 100% on the sweet side. Once it's in your hair, you don't notice the scent being too overpowering. In fact, I quite like the scent!

For the purpose of this post, I decided to try it on damp hair to see the final results. I used a few pumps from about the nape of my neck to the ends of my hair after towel drying, and brushed my hair before blow drying. When I was brushing out my hair before I tried it, I felt that the oil helped brush out the knots easier. After blow drying, oh my, the results are incredible. My hair has never felt so soft! I can easily say I can notice a difference in my hair. I know for sure I will 100% be using this in damp hair more often!

I reckon my first impressions on this hair oil were wrong. It completely shocked me. As I said, I'm usually nervous with hair oils, but this might have just changed my views on them. Highly recommend and I would say that this would be ideal if you have dry hair.

Have you tried this hair oil? What are your views on it?

  1. I adore hair oils! I think they are really good if you have dry ends. I tend to only apply hair oils to my ends, as when I apply oil any higher, my roots and mid lengths become greasy and oily. This oil sounds amazing Jasmine; love the imagery too!

  2. I have really oily hair so I've stayed far away from hair oils! but you may have just convinced me to try one - if I do what you did and put it on the ends of my hair it should be no problem! I want those super soft results!!

  3. Jasmine!!! WOW! It feels like forever since I came over here and left you a load of comments, so that's exactly what I am going to be doing tonight!!

    Ok so onto this hair oil post, firstly a great review, fab pics as ever and i am pleased it worked for you! I love a good hair oil as i like to think it conditions my hair after the shower and helps to protect it if i happen to blow dry it! I use Dove's hair oil for this and seems to be doing well for me at the moment, although like you i have to be careful with the amount of it i use as it can become oily!! Eepp!
    I would like to try this one though as i do get dry hair!
    Loving your work babe,
