My Experience with Schwarzkopf Gliss Kur Hair Repair 6 Miracles Oil Essence:
I want to grow my hair long but I keep getting split ends and my ends are becoming dry, damaged and brittle. Recently, I received a tip from a fellow colleague that applying Moroccan Argan oil to the ends makes hair beautiful. Argan oils were very pricey and I started looking for alternatives which contained Argan oil along with other ingredients at a lesser price and that is how I came across this product.
The oil bottle is packed and sealed in a cardboard box and has all the necessary info on it. The Oil comes in a dark crimson yellow plastic pump bottle. The dark color of the bottle is to keep the oils from oxidizing I believe! The pump is golden yellow in color and the cap is transparent. The oil is transparent and the dispensing of the oil is easy. There is no leakage and the bottle is travel friendly. The oil has a serum kind of consistency and thick. The smell puts me off, it has an oily smell and there is no fragrance, I wish they added it so that it could linger in the hair. Fortunately, the weird oil smell stays only for few minutes and fades away. Two pumps are enough for chest level hair and it can be applied to dry or wet hair. After a hair wash my hair is always a ball of tangles, if I don’t use a conditioner and when I apply this oil, it automatically detangles itself and by the time it is dry, my hair is smooth and easily manageable. The oil also adds shine to the hair.
I do not use a lot of heat products expect a blow dryer occasionally but this product protects hair against heat. So, it plays a dual role in protecting and managing the hair. I have been using the product only for a week now and it is very soon to comment on its split end prevention but from the time I have been using the product, I have noticed that my hair ends are nourished and hydrated and are not very dry. The hair oil is non sticky and doesn’t give an oily look to the hair but instead adds shine and makes hair smooth. The hair oil manages frizz effectively, as the oil dries, I apply to the flyaway and the oil tames it making it look smooth and manageable.
If you have unruly hair that it difficult to manage and keep in place, this product comes to the rescue. The product smoothens the hair and makes it silky. It doesn’t change the hair texture which I like. It is a perfect leave in conditioner your hair would require. It is recommended to be applied only on the hair ends and applying on the scalp/ roots makes it look oily. The hair oil is light and doesn’t weigh down the hair. The oil however has to be reapplied daily and it is not like the traditional oil. The oil doesn’t do any miracles to damaged hair but it maintains healthy hair. So, before using the oil, if you get a cut and then start using the oil, it maintains the hair and prevents occurrence of splits/ dryness or damage. Overall, the oil is a good product but it does contain some silicones which implies that it coats the strand making it smooth but too much usage will cause build up and damage. So summing up:
