I'm hair oil obsessed and I know it. If I had to pick one product to never part with, it would be a good hair oil. I generally apply them after washing my hair, to help keep the frizz away, to add shine and to make my hair feel soft.
However, a new oil from a company called Darshana has me re-thinking my whole routine. Darshana Natural Indian Hair Oil is a citrus-y scented oil that is rich with Antioxidants, Omega 3-6-9, and Vitamins A-B-C-E. Plus, it's made with Ayurvedic herbs that have been used for centuries to improve the health of the hair and skin.
Dry, frizzy or damaged hair becomes noticeably shinier, bouncier and softer after just one use. You apply it to dry hair before showering. Aim to leave it on for about thirty minutes, but you can sleep in it if you feel your hair needs the extra help. Just be sure to sleep with your hair covered so you don't get a bit of oil on your pillow case.
When you're ready, wash out your hair and style as you normally would. You won't need a clarifying shampoo to remove the oil, a sulfate-free shampoo will work perfectly! Just be sure to start out using a small amount of the oil at first. It's easy to over-do it! I also apply a drop (literally, one drop!) to my hair after I've blown it dry or styled it. I try to focus on the ends of my hair, where the damage is most evident. It adds a touch of shine and softness that I'm not getting from any other product. The scent is wonderful too!
A little goes a long way with this hair oil, so start with a small amount and use more if your hair needs it. Darshana Natural Indian Hair Oil is free of parabens, sulfates and silicones and only contains treatment oils and herbs. (Try reading the back of your Moroccan Oil bottle!) I dare you to find something similar at the drugstore - you just can't.
It retails for $38 and will last you for quite a long time! If dry, processed or dull hair is your concern, definitely try this pre-'poo treatment! I'm not the only one who loves it. My good friend, Christine, at 15 Minute Beauty Fanatic loves it too!
