Forest and Shore Thrive Hair Oil

#Gifted I had heard so many positive things about rosemary in haircare and how good an ingredient it was in hair oil for promoting growth, strength, and shine, so I was very excited to try the Forest & Shore Thrive Hair Oil. Right away I noticed how luxurious the packaging was, it has a high quality salon feel and look.

The box has pretty sketches of all the wonderful botanical ingredients, and the soft lemon colour is pretty against the white and the black illustrations. They clearly tell you how to use the product and the benefits. I even like the font they have used, I appreciate a good type face.  The bottle and the pipet are glass, the top is rubber (good quality) I like the nice minimal label, and you can clearly see how much product you have left. So the quality and aesthetic of this product gets a big thumbs up from me.

You can use this product in two ways, you can use it as an overnight treatment up to 3x a week, then wash your hair in the morning. Or you can add 3 – 5 drops after you wash your hair, which is how I have been mostly using it. I have a short bob, so only use 3 drops on the midlength of my hair, and I have noticed a big difference after 3 months of use. I had quite split ends which looked frizzy and dry, I also noticed before using the oil that I would get a lot of breakage and this has greatly reduced in recent months.

My ends never look frizzy, my hair is very glossy and less breakage means it is stronger. So I am thrilled. It took me a week or so to get the amount of product right, as I was being a little too liberal with how much I was putting on and my hair would go greasy, so 3 drops works well for me and my hair length.

If you want to see more results and stimulate hair growth, then using this oil overnight is the best way to achieve that. I wanted more targeted results, focusing on the ends of my hair, and this is where I have seen visible results.

Because Forest and Shore use a blend of the very best oils that are nutrient rich, your hair is in the very best hands! This oil is absolutely jam packed with, as the box says, earth loving botanicals (and hair loving too). You will also notice straight away that Thrive Hair Oil smells like a luxury spa, it has a relaxing and soothing fragrance. To me, I can smell the lavender, parsley, and rosemary which are beautiful!

Here are a list of all the fantastic natural ingredients in the oil and the benefits for your hair, there are so many!

This oil will nourish your hair and scalp, encourage hair growth, strengthen hair, reduce split ends and frizz and make your hair look, feel and actually be healthy and glossy. I very rarely use conditioner now, and the only other styling product I use (only when I am putting heat on my hair) is a heat protector spray. Otherwise I only use shampoo and my hair oil, talk about simplifying my routine, love it! You can’t beat a simple routine.

Not only is the Thrive Hair Oil good for all hair types, you name it curly, wavy or poker straight, it is also completely natural, certified organic and vegan-friendly. Made in the UK with high quality sustainably sourced ingredients. This oil is 100% natural, free from silicones and is cruelty free.

The founder of Forest and Shore, Emily Horrigan has done a lovely job with this brand & it is a slice of British luxury, with a focus on using natural botanical ingredients and really harnessing the power of plants.  Let me know if you have tried anything from this brand, if you want to learn more about their products head to Forest & Shore or you can purchase their products on Amazon.

Neal and Wolf Luxury Haircare Review

I love to use nice hair products, I’m trying to use products that tame my locks and leave it glossy. I have naturally wavy hair and most days I don’t use heat on it as I let it dry naturally (apart from my fringe). I like the effortless look and have been growing my hair for the past year as I want to plat it and do lots of hairstyles that require long locks. Slowly but surely I’m getting there and my hair is now down to my shoulders.

I was kindly sent three products from Neal and Wolf to try. I’ve been using them for almost 6 weeks now and feel I can really give you a good review of them. I had never heard of this brand before but a quick google search showed that I have clearly been living under a rock as they are really well-known and loved by a lot of people.

You can’t purchase them on the high street they are only available in selected hairdressers and online. You can order them from the Neal & Wolf online shop here.

I have been trying their Daily Cleansing Shampoo, Intense Care Treatment and the Super Shine Spray.

Neal and Wolf

The Daily Cleansing Shampoo 250ml – £10.95

I wash my hair every 3 days and I so look forward to using this shampoo as it leaves no greasy heavy residue in your hair and if you didn’t want to condition your hair you’d still be left with glossy locks. It’s a very gentle cleansing shampoo and it smells utterly luxurious. It has a mixture of silk, milk and shea extract. I don’t think I have used a shampoo as nice as this, I feel like my hair is getting a treatment and so am I. You just have to smell it to understand.

Hair care

Intensive Care Conditioner 200ml – 12.95

My hair can get dry even though I very rarely use heat to style it and with dry hair comes flyaway hair, which is so hard to tame but this conditioner is so creamy and nourishing. I use this once a week for a really deep luxurious treatment and leave it on my hair for 10 minutes. Neal & Wolf say that ‘The difference in texture and appearance is truly stunning, leaving hair shiny, healthy and manageable.’ I have to agree my hair is very silky and bouncy not weighed down at all. This is my favourite product from the 3 I have tried.

Super Shine Spray 100ml – £11.95

The first thing I need to say about this is that it smells better than some of my perfumes It’s blooming lovely. This is a spray that you put on after styling on dry hair to really ramp up the shine. I tend to spray it more on the length of my hair as I get greasy roots very easily. You only need a couple of sprays to do the job & the spray action is very even is like a mist which I like.

I have to say I’m thrilled to have been introduced to this brand and I have my eye on a couple more things from them. Their hair care would make a really nice gift for someone who is into hair care as their packaging is really luxurious and the products are like having a salon experience at home. I can’t recommend them highly enough.

Let me know if you have tried anything from Neal & Wolf as I’d love to hear your recommendations.

* These three products were kindly sent to me for my consideration. My review is 100% my own.
