Keracare Essential Oils For The Hair Review

I have been using this oil for about 4 months now and am in love with it. I picked it up from a black hair care shop two minutes away from my house at university. It was around £ 6.99 which I feel is well worth the money.

It's really light and non greasy, when it was slightly warmer I used it as a sealant over my lush r 'n' b moisturiser. Since I have eliminated glycerine from my routine this winter,  I use it on its own or with other products because it doesn't contain any glycerine. Most recently I used it as a pre-poo treatment and ADORED it.

Below are the ingredients, the ingredients are really good I especially love that it has aloe vera oil in it which can help to seal the cuticles. Although I'm not so happy about the ingredient 'propylparaben' as parabens can be carcinogenic.

sunflower seed oil, peanut oil, castor oil, coconut oil, jojoba oil, sesame oil, aloe vera oil, almond oil, olive oil, perfume, propylparaben, BHA

I've found that a little goes a long way and if I use too much then my hair can look a bit greasy but that soon goes as the oil doesn't just sit on my hair.

Im not too keen in the smell but it doesn't linger so that's not huge problem.

I also recently tested the LOC method to keep moisture in my hair with this oil and loved the results. I will do a post on the LOC method soon.

I think this may be a staple product for me and I am tempted to try other products from this line.

Overall rating: 5*****

Have you tried anything for, this line, what did you think?

Hair update

Currently I have noticed a real change in my hair; my hair is long, strong and healthier than ever before.
My hair is growing at a really steady state of about 1/2 and inch per month and my ends are retaining length.

This is my hair on 1st January 2012:
Just above APL (hair wasn't 100% straight as you can see)

This is my current length before my trim:
It's just grazing mid back length

This is my hair after a trim:

I got just over an inch off and after the much needed trim my hair is just about BSL, my layers do still need sorting out though and m ends looked horribly dry, so I made a DIY conditioner to help them. Its another 5-6 inches to waist length so if I continue this progress for the next year my hair will not be far off waist length.
