A few weeks ago, Emily from Forest and Shore contacted me and kindly offered me a sample of her Hallelujah Hair Oil to try and review. After doing some research into the company, I discovered that this was a product that I was definitely excited about, as I actively try to keep my coloured hair in as good condition as possible with coconut oil. The product can either be used on clean, dry hair to add nourishment, or as an intense hair treatment to be washed out. So far, I prefer to use this as a leave in treatment, which I wash out after a few hours, so all the natural goodness can be absorbed into my hair and scalp.
I can’t deny it, but the packaging design is beautiful. Forest and Shore have taken a minimalistic approach that I adore, and the simple pencil drawing effect featuring various plants and flowers perfectly embodies the company’s natural ethos, as well as the key ingredients in the hair oil.
The game-changing feature of the bottle is the pipette applicator in the lid. For some time now, I have been using organic coconut oil on my hair, which I apply by spooning out the solid coconut, melting it in my hands and then rubbing this into my hair and scalp. This is a method that works, but it is undeniably very messy! The pipette dispenser on the Hallelujah Hair oil means that you can apply the product accurately, and ensure that the oil also reaches your scalp to nourish and moisturise evenly.
The hair oil is a blend of olive, sesame, coconut, arnica, rosemary and lavender essential oils, all of which have huge beneficial properties for dry or damaged hair. The ingredients are all also 100% organic, and free from parabens and sulphates.
