I recently saw a review of this range on IMBB. I have used this one before and when the online store offered a flat 30% discount on this brand, I surely had to get it. They send me such discounts every 5 days and I just cannot stop myself from getting stuff; may God help me to control this habit because at times it happens that we get necessary stuff but this was the one that I genuinely wanted, so got it. I have used this one before , o this is my second tub of this particular product.
Price: Rs. 495 for 250 gm.

Palmer’s Olive Oil Formula, a therapeutic balm formulated with Extra Virgin Olive Oil and essential vitamins, restores softness and manageability and leaves hair silky with a long lasting sheen.
Directions For Use:
Apply a small amount to hair and scalp daily.
My Take on Palmer’s Olive Oil Formula Gro Therapy:
Anything that has olive oil attracts me a lot as I prefer olive oil for my damaged hair. I am using the oil that was suggested by Shivani in her DIY, so couldn’t compromise on olives too in any case, so thought of getting this one too. I have not tried anything so far from this range other than this product, but I am planning to get some more stuff as it works really well. This one comes in a huge and heavy sturdy green tub and the look of it is very attractive, in an eco-friendly green colour. Since it is too heavy, it cannot be termed as travel friendly and the quantity is amazing. If we consider the price and quantity, it will easily last for 4 months even if you apply it everyday to your scalp and hair shaft. It is also made with organic oil, so it would be a good alternative to the extra virgin olive oil. It has a paper kind of a thing on the lid and you open it and it has a whole lot of information and instructions which makes the product even more credible.
I thought it would be creamy like other hair masks, but when I actually opened it, I could see a waxy thing, olive green in colour. It is like a balm, waxy and oily. The consistency is thick which may in turn make the hair greasy and oily. The fragrance isn’t that happening too as it smells a bit like wax and some hair oil mixed together. I apply it like an oil and keep it full day and overnight when I do not have to leave the house because it makes hair very greasy and oily. Since they have mentioned to apply it on the scalp, I feel like it is a complete oil and not just a balm. I have very thin hair and after applying this, my hair become totally flat and I cannot just go out with such oily hair. I think this is not suitable for thin hair, so it can be used as a spa when at home. It feels very heavy on the hair and causes a lot of build-up too if used every day, so a clarifying shampoo along with this is a must, but the results after washing are amazing.
The hair becomes soft, smooth, shiny, manageable and frizz-free as well. It reduces the damage and makes hair look healthy, but I did not notice any growth, there was minor growth but I think that is natural growth and not because of this product. Overall, the product is good for overnight use as it penetrates deep inside and you will notice a difference in the health of the hair if used continuously.

Will I Repurchase/Do I Recommend Palmer’s Olive Oil Formula Gro Therapy?
It is really good if you want to use it as a spa or an oil overnight because it works exactly like olive oil, but you just cannot apply this and get out of the house because it is greasy and and I will not repurchase as I have already purchased two tubs and I will give something else a shot rather than getting this again.
