My bench partner in school had the most gorgeous hair I have ever seen. I had asked her the hair oil she applies and she answered back saying ‘Magic Oil with Hibiscus’ and all I had was the boring ‘Coconut Oil.’ I remember the same day I rushed home and cried to mum for the Hibiscus oil. She never got it for me but after years, I found my magic oil with by Dove.

My Review :
I have never been an oil person. My Mum literally used to get it on my hair with a stick beside her. Then, I grew up and she gave up trying. I heard everyone raving about the Dove Elixir Nourished Shine Hair Oil which made me really keen on trying it out. She was shocked when I came back with a bottle of hair oil. 😛
Did you see that classy glass bottle with hibiscus petals at the bottom ? Isn’t it just breathtaking ? I absolutely heart it and have kept it as a decoration on dressing table. 😛 It, however, comes with a pump dispenser which can suck sometimes. Like it gulped a petal few days back and I had a hard time getting the oil out of the bottle. The glass also makes it a bit heavy and not very travel friendly. The fragrance, Holy God, is heavenly. Me and my sister got the oil on our palms and couldn’t stop smelling it. 😛 It disappears after a while though.
Dove Elixir Nourished Shine Hair Oil is extremely light weight and get absorbed into the scalp quickly. With ingredients such as Argan oil (why are you so expensive?) and hibiscus, this hair oil is sure to do some magic to your tresses in just 30 minutes unlike the conventional overnight oiling. The healing properties of hibiscus and argan oil is supposed to make your hair soft and nourished and provide luminosity to your hair. Argan oil is known to retains moisture in the hair, treating dryness while making it supple and smooth. It’s not oily like our regular oils and is easier to wash off.
I haven’t noticed any drastic change in my hair texture or shine but I would be happy to trade my regular hair oil with the Dove Elixir Nourished Shine Hair Oil. I personally like to use it as a leave in serum and it does help to tame my frizz.
Overall, I think it’s a great break from regular hair oils. If you run away from oiling your hair like I do, you should give this a try. You’ll want to oil your hair more often. 😉
