Skip next paragraph if you don't have time for my guilt trip.
A come back post is always a weird thing; not knowing where to start or how to apologize for not updating my blog for so long sometimes prolongs the come back itself. So I'm back, and I hope I still know how to write :). Ok Ok, I'm so sorry for not posting for so long and I would really try to maintain a schedule for updating my blog. I promise I would try.
I have been trying out loads of new stuff lately which I would save for some future post but today I want to review one of my all time favorites, the Jamaican Mango and Lime Island Oil.
|Jamaican Mango & Lime Island Oil.|
Function - Very Good
Smell - Awesomely Excellent
Feeling - Ok
Consistency - Excellent
Island oil is a mixture of Castor Oil, Carrot Oil, Jojoba Oil, Olive oil, Tea Tree Oil, Mineral oil, colouring and Fragrance. As you can see Island oil is a lot in one mix, each of these oils have several benefits to help groom healthy hair. Island Oil is a perfect mix for hot oil treatment and can also be used to mositurise your locs and scalp after a shampoo and before re-twisting.
What I love the most is the about the Island Oil is the smell. It literally smells like heaven. I used to use only olive oil from my kitchen to re-twist my locs at some point which was ok, but immediately I switched to Island oil it put my hair status "on fleek" and compliments started rolling in - "Your hair smells so so nice". The consistency of Island oil is great as well, it is not too thick or sticky, neither is it too light or watery.
Island oil claims the following
- Lubricates scalp; which is very obvious,
- Nourish roots; this very agreeable to considering the Natural oils in the mix.
- Strengthens locs; again I can agree to this.
All in all, I give the Island Oil a 9 on a scale on 1 - 10. The score down is because it contains mineral oil - a controversial product which is derived from petroleum. Besides that I love Island Oil and would recommend this to any loc head.
Ok folks there you have it.
Your Loc Head.
