Recently I got contacted by Old Wives Tail, a small hair care company that sells 100% handmade organic products with no additives or chemicals, to try one of their products.
Since I suffer from a dry and itchy scalp (glamorous) thought that I could benefit from trying the SOS Organic Anti-Hair Loss Oil Treatment, which states it soothes, moisturises and softens the scalp to prevent hair loss. It also mentions that this oil contains anti-bacterial agents that heal scalp infections and remove dead skin cells, as well as having stimulating properties that increase circulation and encourage healthy hair growth.
Even though I normally experience a bit of hair loss when I brush or wash my hair, it is completely natural and am not concerned about that very much, but what made me select this oil to try is that it mentioned it gets rid of dead skin, which sometimes accumulates on some areas of my scalp and can be visible and embarrassing.
When I use the SOS oil, I put it all over my scalp and massage to make sure it gets through and then apply some more on the lengths of my hair, after I've left it for an hour I wash it twice to completely get rid of any residue.
What I really like about this product is that it smells amazing - it contains olive, avocado, almond, lavender, peppermint and clove oils, though it mostly smells of peppermint and lavender. I also noticed that after washing, my hair is noticeably shinier, softer, smoother and it also has more volume at the roots; and the visible dry skin on my scalp has considerably reduced so I will keep on using.
The only downside that I've found is that this product is very runny and the packaging makes for a bit of a messy application, so a pump would be greatly appreciated. Quite a good product nonetheless, so I would recommend it for dry scalps and for adding more volume to your roots.
