Forest & Shore hallelujah hair oil review

I have found that since my coeliac diagnosis, I get very dry hair and very dry skin.  I have no idea why but I do know that others suffer the same issues.  I have to constantly use moisturising products to keep my skin soft and hair not frizzy!  Emily very kindly contacted me to ask if I would like to try her new brand, Forest & Shore, hallelujah hair oil for dry or damaged hair.  I jumped at the chance as it's something that would benefit my hair so much and I knew that some of you would find it useful too as I'm not the only one with dry hair (or skin!).  It is also cruelty free which I do really love.

As you can see, the packaging is amazing!  The bottle comes in a cardboard box that has this neutral floral pattern on, this is completely my aesthetics!  The product comes in a class jar with a pipette to dispense the product from.  I feel so fancy when I use this hair oil!!

It smells honestly amazing, the packaging says it is 'a blend of olive, sesame, coconut, arnica, rosemary and lavender essential oils' - they all go together so beautifully.

So, how is it helping my hair?
My hair is not frizzy anymore!  I put around 3 drops on my hand and rub it into the ends of my hair, every night after I wash my hair.  I then roughly blow dry it and my hair doesn't go frizzy at all.  I have very thick hair and I often find it can go uncontrollable I don't have a product in my hair.  I used to find that sometimes my hair felt too heavy and weighed down with certain oils, but as you use so little of this oil, I don't have this issue.

The delivery...
I ordered the product on Friday 18th and it was meant to be delivered between Thursday 24th to Wednesday 30th (it was a bank holiday weekend) which I thought was pretty quick - 3 to 5 working days.  But no.  It got delivered on Tuesday 22nd!  How quick is that?!  I was honestly so impressed!  I love speedy delivery, I get excited for a parcel when I order and when it comes quickly, it means I get to use it quicker - bonus!!

As you can see in the above photo, it is free from synthetic fragrances, synthetic colours, parabens, sulfates, silicone, EDTA and mineral oil.  It is 100% organic and is soil association approved.  They are suitable for vegetarians and vegans, none of their products have been tested on animals.  It is also recyclable.

I hope you have found this useful, as it is something a little different for my blog but I did think it would help many of you.  Do let me know if you've tried it and you're thoughts.  Thank you once again to Emily and the team at Forest & Shore for giving me this opportunity to try your amazing hair oil.
