Taking good care of hair ensures that it has a healthy texture and an enviable shine. But it is easier said than done. Weather changes, pollution, lack of time, hormonal changes are some of the many reasons why hair tends to go limp, dry or coarse. Beauty counters are stocked with innumerable hair care products that claim to transform your hair. While I do use lots of different hair care products, one staple in my hair care cabinet is hair oil. I have been using hair oils for as long as I can remember. More recently, a treatment that I have been using for some time now is the Jojoba & Clove Organic Oil Treatment from Old Wives Tail.

Old Wives Tail is a small hair care company that sells handmade organic hair care products. Their products are  100% Organic – absolutely no additives or chemicals of any kind. Their products aim to nourish the hair with unique blends of oils. The company are strongly against animal testing in the beauty industry and donate 10% of their profits to charities that save animals from being tested upon. That is one more reason to buy their products.

This is how my product reached me. Loved the simple yet beautiful packaging.

Moving on to the product that I was sent - Jojoba & Clove Organic Oil Treatment. This one is said to be a very hydrating and balancing hair treatment for dull, thinning, brittle or broken hair. My hair has been on the dull side for some time now. I have also had some issues with increased hair fall, so this seemed like a good product to put to test. The treatment contains pure organic jojoba oil that adds strength, volume and texture to weak, lifeless hair by penetrating every hair follicle. Because it also contains clove oil it packs in anti-bacterial and stimulating properties as well.

How to use?

You need to massage the oil into your scalp focusing on the ends. Leave the treatment on for one hour. Then you can shampoo it out. You could use your regular conditioner on the ends of your hair if needed. Another way to use the oil is as overnight treatment. Apply the oil on the scalp, wrap in a warm towel and leave it overnight. Next morning you can wash it off as usual. I have tried both the methods and each one has worked well - it leaves the hair nourished and smooth.

While both these are the suggested uses and work well, I have found that the oil treatment helps me in other ways as well. I suffer from migraine and normally when migraine sets in, I need to oil my hair. That helps the symptoms to ease off a little. I have used this oil treatment a couple of times when I happened to get my migraine and it helped in reducing the intensity of the migraine. I think this could be because of the presence of Clove oil. Another use is massaging in a few drops of the oil on the hair while blow drying. This keeps the flyaways under control. And the third way I used this product was by mixing it with my conditioner. It gives much better results than using just the conditioner.

Overall, this oil treatment is good as a deep conditioning treatment for hair. All other benefits that if offers are an added bonus.

Ingredients: Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Karite Butter Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) Fruit, Eugenia Caryophyllus (Clove) Flower Oil, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil.
