This is my first post and I was extremely excited to write for this blog. I decided to review a product that I have been using and endlessly loving since the past 2 years. It is the Wella Luxe Oil.
Where did I come across this product?
This product was initially suggested to my mother, who has really heavy curly and frizzy hair by her hairstylist, and in no time I was making more use of it than she was. My hair type is wavy and I have soft curls, but in humidity my tamed hair can turn into a hair-raising (pun-intended) nightmare if correct products are not utilized. I have been using this product diligently since 2 years and here is my opinion about it.
Price: £15.90/ Rs. 1601.77 for 100 ml

It’s texture is like a light oil but does not feel sticky and glides through the hair very easily making the hair feel instantly smooth and soft.
My experience with Wella SP Luxe Oil
I have always been on a serum hunt since the time I started to grow my hair long and understood its texture. I have been through A LOT of serums, tried and tested several brands ranging from both high end to low end, but unfortunately never found a brand that has done much for me. However since I discovered Luxe oil 2 two years ago, while rummaging through my mothers stuff on a trip to Miami, I can assure you that I have sworn by this magic potion ever since. It is a transparent liquid and comes in a gorgeous golden glass bottle with a pump and is very travel friendly.
The beauty of this oil is that it can be used both on wet hair and dry. In fact it has been my savior on days when I don’t wash my hair and need it to feel more soft, look more shiny and smell heavenly good! The product smells like sweet almond and is perfect for daily use to achieve a fresh look. It can be used on dry, damaged as well as chemically treated hair. The best way to use this product is to use two pumps of the product depending on your hair length and work the product into the length of your hair avoiding the scalp completely or it might result in greasiness. This product is the perfect companion on a trip where it is going to be humid or post swimming because it tames the hair so beautifully and provides you with such manageable silky hair. It can also be used before blow drying or while using any heat, as a heat protectant.
Since the time I have been using this product my hair has become more healthy and thick. I don’t think it is due to the product itself, however due to the reduced number of head washes per week, from everyday, to two- three times a week, my hair has started to retain its natural oil and has become healthy.
Overall I absolutely Love the product and have been using it as a part of my daily hair care routine, on dry and wet hair both, since the past two years. It beautifully manages my hair and provides me with a shine I can never get enough of, and not only that, but it has made me give up on all heat products to tame my frizz and enhance my curls. This is the perfect answer to all our frizz taming solutions and should be tried at least once by all.

Would I recommend Wella SP Luxe oil?
Yes, most definitely I would. I have been using it since 2 years and have no complaints from it nor do I hunt for new products for daily use anymore.
