... use this product again. Organic Root Stimulator Olive Oil Treatment. Horrible stuff. Of course I am speaking of my own experience, and having used the Carrot Oil by the same company (which I love, find it very helpful) I expected the same great results ...with maybe a subtle difference.
The first time I used it I used way too much, so I thought that was why I was in a pickle. But this last time I used such a teeny amount I never would have guessed the product would linger on through a few washes and, what is worse, I had a bit of breakage. I never
have breakage so I was saddened to see this.
I decided to pamper my tresses with a deeper conditioning treatment, and decided to bypass the shampoo since I just washed a couple of days ago. I rinsed my hair very well, diluted some Napa Valley Organic White Wine Vinegar (I love this vinegar) and rinsed with it, I let it soak in, then rinsed again (my hair felt so soft), then conditioned with Smooth as Silk by Giovanni, rinsed lightly, put a little of my Burt's Bees Hair Repair on the last few inches... plaited in one French braid and let it air dry.
Took forever to do so. I "washed" in the afternoon and at three in the morning I woke up to fairly dampened tresses. So I unbound the lot and let it dry until I was tired from my reading. Then I braided it up and went to bed.
This morning's hair is soft and smooth, not a hint of dryness.
Well, I just thought I would share this... and this --> my hubby, who is now home, keeps commenting on how long my hair is! He hasn't seen it down yet either, just braided. As some of you know he has been away.
