L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil

I've been on the hunt for a hair oil that isn't ridiculously expensive for a while now and I came across this one in boots. At £9.99 it's not exactly cheap but it's far from expensive for a hair oil, especially when you consider there's a lot more in this one than in some of the much more expensive ones. It's got coconut oil and sunflower seed oil in it as well as other things, both of which I've heard good things about when it comes to hair, so I thought why not try it out.

Usually I use this product on wet hair but if my hair feels like it needs a bit more love when it's dry I'll put some on then too. All it needs is for you to put a pump or two (as little as possible really to prevent putting too much in and making your hair look greasy) into your hands, rub them together and then apply it to your hair. I only use it on the bottom half of my hair as you shouldn't use it at your roots - all it will do is make your
hair look greasy!

The ends of my hair are fairly dry and damaged at the best of times due to it being bright red a few years ago. Although I've let the colour grow out and it now looks like ombre, the sun still damages it very easily which is why this product is great for me in the summer. Although it's not a life saving product, it definitely does the trick. After using it a few times I did notice a difference in my hair and I think on hair that's not as damaged as mine it would work a treat! 

What is brilliant about this product is that because a little goes a long way, you really do get your money's worth. I've been using it for a good few weeks now and it's hardly gone down at all. 

As I've not tried other hair oils I can't compare this to any others. It certainly seems to work and the price is definitely fair. It's definitely a cheaper alternative to some of the very expensive ones such as argan oil. 

Do you have any recommendations for other hair oils? Leave them below and I might just try them out!
