Palmer's Olive Oil Hair Range Review

 At times my hair can be far from manageable. It's thin, coloured, knotty, somewhat dry and seriously lacking in the volume department, so I am always trying out and testing new hair products to help address those issues. I previously tried the Shea Moisture Smooth and Tame Argan Oil and Almond Milk Range out(which I really loved) but beforehand I put the Palmer's Olive Oil Hair Range to the test.

Palmer's currently have a very extensive range of products using their Olive Oil formula(twelve to be specific), and I have been trying out four of them. I have been trying out the Olive Oil Smoothing Shampoo, Replenishing Conditioner, Weightless Shine Dry Oil Mist and the Deep Conditioner.

The Olive Oil Formula is most specifically designed for those with hair that is prone to frizz. I am quite prone to frizz and it can be a challenge to fix it, especially when it's exposed to damp and humid weather.
Palmers Olive Oil Hair Range Review
I always used to be quite apprehensive about using certain oils in my hair as I always thought they would make my hair greasy, however that is no longer the case. I have tried many different hair oils(Argan Oil, Macadamia Oil, Coconut Oil etc) and I have always been surprised at how well they've performed. One of the oils that I have not tried is Olive Oil, so I was intrigued to see how I'd get on with this range.

The Smoothing Shampoo consists of four key ingredients- Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Vitamin E, Jamaican Black Castor Oil and Keratin Amino Acids. This combination is designed to add moisture, and smooth out the frizz, leaving your hair feeling softer, healthier and stronger.

I wash my hair up to twice a week to keep my hair in the best condition. I find that washing often can be a little excessive and takes a toll on my hair, making it greasier quicker and it doesn't last long in between washes. The Smoothing Shampoo has been a dream to use. It instantly cleanses, injects moisture into my hair and it has the most wonderous creamy texture to it. I only need a small amount of it as its incredibly rich. If I use more than a small dollop of it, it makes my hair look and feel a little weighed down, which is totally the opposite of what I want. That's down to my hair being quite fine though. 

Within this conditioner is a concoction of three main ingredients- Extra Virgin Olive Oil(to protect hair from free radicals), Vitamin E(to repair and strengthen the hair) and Keratin(replenish lost keratin within the hair).
 The Replenishing Conditioner is quite rich and creamy, exactly like the Shampoo, and I only need a small amount of product too. I apply it to the mid to end lengths of my hair, which is where my hair tends to get dry and frizzy the most. After using it, I find that my hair is much more easier to brush through and it's certainly more softer and sleeker in appearance. You can no longer visibly see any sign of flyaways or frizz. It's wonderful. 

Deep Conditioner

The Deep Conditioner has a combination of four main ingredients- Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Vitamin E, Jamaican Black Castor Oil(relieves dry, itchy scalp) and Botanical Scalp Complex(to soothe irritation and redness).

This is the conditioner I go for whenever my hair is in need of a serious boost of hydration. I mean, yes, the replenishing conditioner is just as good but the deep conditioner is really quite intensive and adds that little bit more moisture that you need, should your hair be feeling super dry and let down. It is incredible. It comes in a packet which is a little bit of an issue. I would've preferred it to be packaged in a bottle as you can get so many uses out of it. Leaving an open packet sitting there on display, waiting to be used again just doesn't sit right with me, especially if you don't need to use it very often.

This mist contains a blend of a total of 8 different essential oils in order to do three things; tame frizz, restore moisture and add shine. I have to admit, this isn't my favourite of the four I tried from the range. I have used the mist in two ways; on wet hair before blowdrying, and also after blowdrying and styling my hair. It's a very lightweight mist but I find you have to really press the top to get the product out. I don't know if I've just got a dodgy pump or what, but it was really frustrating to use. It did a really good job at putting frizz at bay but I didn't find it did much else. It's a shame as I really wanted to like it, especially as I had never tried a dry oil mist beforehand.

The Olive Oil range is wonderfully scented though, and the products have been a joy to use. All of the products within the range are also free from all the nasties too, including Sulphates, Parabens, Phthalates, Mineral Oil and Gluten. 

  I am so intrigued to see what the rest of the range holds. You can purchase Palmer's Olive Oil Hair range here from Superdrug.
