Review: Old Wives Tail Jojoba & Clove Organic Hair Oil Treatment

I was recently approached by Old Wives Tail, a small hair care company that sells handmade vegan hair products. They make a range of natural, organic hair masks and oil treatments that aim to nourish your hair back to life. Just like myself, Old Wives Tail hopes to eradicate animal testing in the beauty industry, and consequently donate 10% of their profits to charities that save animals from being tested on.
Old Wives Tail kindly invited me to try one of their hair oil treatments. I decided to try the organic jojoba and clove treatment which is designed to hydrate and balance dull, thinning, brittle or broken hair. My hair is very long and is naturally fine and straight, and it can often look rather limp, so I am always looking for ways to help give it some extra oomph.
The product was carefully packaged and arrived safely wrapped in pretty paper.
The texture of the oil treatment is soft and creamy and it has a gorgeous spicy aroma. The ingredients for this product are:
Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Karite Butter Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) Fruit, Eugenia Caryophyllus (Clove) Flower Oil, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil.
The jojoba oil penetrates every hair follicle to add strength, volume and texture to weak, lifeless hair. This treatment has anti-bacterial and stimulating properties which help to naturally soothe, balance and stimulate your roots to encourage healthy hair growth.

To use the oil treatment you apply to wet hair, massage into your scalp then leave it on for an hour (or overnight if your hair is in a bad way). I put mine on while I relaxed in the bath with an orange bath melt. The combination of the bath melt and the oil treatment made it smell like Christmas (I'm already counting down the days!). I then washed the product out; you do need to shampoo a couple of times to get all the oil out, especially if you have oily hair like me. I didn't feel like I needed to use any conditioner but you can just use a bit on the ends of your hair if necessary. I then blow-dried my hair and I loved the end result. My hair looked and felt in great condition; not only did it appear more volumised but the strands actually felt thicker in texture as well. My hair felt soft and smooth, and it still smelt of lovely cloves, even the next day! My hair looked shinier than usual and had more volume for a few days after using the oil treatment.
Overall I thought this was a great product and I will definitely use it regularly to help keep my hair looking its best. Old Wives Tail are currently running a competition where you could win not one but two hair oils of your choice! Which ones would you choose?
