Renaissance Henna’s Henna Hair Oil

This is a sponsored post.
In fact, this is my first sponsored post ever, and it makes me feel quite giddy inside!
How cool: Brands wants to send me stuff to review? Wowsa.


  

No, seriously. This is definitely one of the coolest experiences since I started blogging!

Renaissance Henna sent me a bottle of their Organic Henna Hair Oil Blend to try.
Previous price: £12.99 (GBP)
Price: £10.99 (GBP)

The bottle contains 100ml.


Product description:
Renaissance Henna India Desert Earth Organic Blend Henna Hair Oil
A little goes a long way - just a few drops of this exquisite India hair oil will beautify, nourish, repair and condition the most lifeless hair. Perfect after and in between henna / indigo to help maintain henna hair colour and keep it glossy and strong. This is food for hair. May help to encourage hair growth.

It's manufactured and packed in India. How cool. 

First thought: Great bottle. Plastic, so no risk of shattering. Good grip on it too. The little grooves in the bottom should help maintain a grip on the bottle even with wet and slippery fingers.


Ingredients : Organic Sesame Seed Oil, Lawsonia Inermis Extract, Acacia Concinna, Eclipta Alba,
Aloe Barbadensis, Emblica Officinalis.

Ingredient list deciphered
Sesame seed oil.
Lawsonia Inermis is the Latin name for the henna bush.
Acacia concinna is used to make the herbal powder Shikakai.
Eclipta Alba known as false daisy or bhringraj.
Aloe vera.
Emblica Officinalis also known as amla.

I'm far from an expert on Indian herbs, but I recognize all of these. I've never actually gotten experimental with anything other than cassia and henna, but these herbs I've seen in so many hair recipes before. 

What do the herb-experts say?


The bottle opening

The oil
The oil itself is light and thin in consistency. It's easy to distribute in my hair and doesn't leave a greasy residue. It absorbs nicely and leaves a pretty shine behind.

Scent
It has a sort of lightly wooden scent with overtones of fruitiness. Once applied to hair, it seems to disappear.


Glossy!!

  2. Well dear I have used straight neem oil to my hairs to prevent my hair loss and dandruff in my hairs. No doubt my dandruff problem got a solution but my hair fall did not stopped. Then on recommendation of doctor I tried herbal hair oil. I am sure it will work, as I have took help of an experienced doctor now to cure this hair loss problem.
