I have some pretty exciting news that I need to get off my chest before I start my review haha!. So I am now officially part of the beauty editorial team for IDEAL magazine, which I am so excited about. I was approached by their lovely intern Natalie, and it resulted in me writing a beauty article, that was the second most popular of that week. IDEAL is a really relevant clean cut magazine, which has all sorts of articles ranging from beauty,health, lifestyle and more. I will be posting around 3/4 times a month, and would love for you to check out my current article HERE.
Okay, so the second bit of excitement ... My blog is fixed!!!. For 8 months I have been blogging without my posts showing up on my followers feeds, which was due to me having a blog URL change. I felt so down about it, and just hoped that people would see my posts through clicking my twitter links etc, but finally now my followers can hopefully start to see my hard work and devotion to my blog wahoo!.
Schwarzkopf Professional BC Hair Oil
"Precious Argan Oil infuses the hair with opulent shine and caressable softness without overburdening."
Now moving onto my review :) - I have used quite a few hair oils, but because my hair is prone to greasy roots and it's so long, I just have never been their biggest fan. I was sent the Schwarzkopf professional BC oil, and was really interested to see if it was going to leave a lasting impression, in comparison to the other hair oils that I had previously tried. It also has a special technology which allows it to spread an even amount of product throughout the lengths of your hair.
What I liked?
Firstly, I really liked the bottle, it just looks so streamlined and pretty. Most hair oils are in traditional bottles with some snazzy design (which is nice) but I quite liked the shape and simplistic design of this bottle. I was then totally surprised by the fact the product wasn't runny, but instead it was a much thicker consistency.. Which straight away made it different from the others I had tried. I love mythic oil by L'Oreal but the runny texture just made it feel more greasy. The smell of this product is lovely, but I find that most hair oils smell beautiful, but this was just as nice. I then applied the product to my just washed hair, and waited until the next day. After applying the oil, the first thing I noticed was the volume of my hair was still present, and my hair appeared healthy with a natural shine. I noticed with mythic oil if I put it too much in one area then the following day it would be more flat in that area. However, with this oil my hair was as normal, but with a much healthier look and feel. I think this might have been due to the technology behind this oil, which allows it to evenly distribute throughout your hair.
What I didn't like
At first I wasn't sure about the product not having a pump, but when I realized the thickness of the product, I realized that a pump wouldn't have really worked anyway. I then noticed that the product was 100ml in comparison to other hair oils which are normally 150ml, which isn't a problem apart from getting less product. The oil also retails for around £24 which is quite expensive (cheaper on feel unique) but its still better priced than some of the high end oils that retail around £30.00
This product is fabulous for girls with longer/thicker/coarser hair, as it adds health, shine and easier manageability to your hair are routine, without making your hair greasy or taking away volume. It also comes in a light version for finer hair, so overall I think this oil is a lot better for my hair, and I can see myself using this a lot more in the future. *PR sample
