As someone with naturally curly hair, I am in a constant battle against frizz and dry ends. I also dye my hair every 6-8 weeks, and have been doing this for the past 8 years, so I’m really aware that my hair needs a little bit of extra care to keep it in good condition.
Something that has been an absolute hair saviour recently, especially over the winter, has been the Garnier Ultimate Blends ‘The Sleek Perfector Oil’ with pure coconut oil. It’s specifically tailored to dry, frizzy hair, and claims to nourish hair, protect it from heat styling, tame frizz and flyaways, boost shine and leave your hair smelling ‘divine’.
After every hair wash, I dispense two pumps between my palms, rub my hands together and apply evenly throughout my damp hair, concentrating on the ends where most of the dryness is. You can also use it on dry hair which makes this product extra versatile!
This product is amazing. It smooths down my frizz without weighing it down, and gives my hair shine without leaving a greasy residue. It’s also perfect for people who struggle with unruly curls like myself, giving me more defined curls rather than my natural wavy mess. On the very rare occasion that I find the patience to straighten my hair, it protects it from heat and leaves it unbelievably soft and healthy-looking!
As someone who absolutely hates coconut, you’d think I wouldn’t like the way this product smells, but it’s actually a really light, subtle smell. The oil contains cocoa seed butter as well as coconut, which balances out the scent well and leaves it smelling really lovely.
The product retails at £9.99 and you get 150ml in a bottle. In terms of hair oils on the market, it pretty affordable, and because a little bit goes a long way, it lasts for absolutely ages! It’s also a great alternative to Argon Oil. To go with this oil, there is also The Sleek Restorer Shampoo, The Sleek Restorer Conditioner, and The Sleek Restorer 1 Minute Treatment. I’ve tried all of these products in the past and love them all, especially the 1 minute treatment, and would definitely use them again in the future. Boots often have great deals on these products, so keep an eye out!
