Alchemy Grapefruit Hair Remedy Oil


I dye my hair about once a month so I'm always on the look out for products that will help keep it healthy and stop it from drying out. When I came across the Alchemy Grapefruit Hair Remedy oil I was excited to try it, as it's a completely natural product and sounded like it would really benefit my hair. It contains 5 super oils that are combined to improve the condition and strength of your hair. It is made with Coconut, Avocado, Almond and Castor oils which all work in sync to promote growth, thicken hair and make it shine. Finally, it contains a citrusy scented Grapefruit oil, which fights dandruff and keeps your scalp healthy. This makes it smell really fresh and different to other hair oils. Best of all though, there are no silicons, sulphates or parabens, so it won't damage your hair in any way. 

There are two ways to use this hair oil:
1. As a hair mask/ treatment before you wash your hair.
2. To put on the ends of your hair when it's wet before you dry it. 

1. When I use it as a treatment mask, I cover my hair from root to tip with it. I did it when I woke up on Saturday morning then simply tied my hair up for about 2 hours before showering and washing my hair. My hair naturally gets greasy quite quickly and I found that, although my hair was lovely and soft, and more sleek and less frizzy than normal, it did go greasy quicker than it usually does, meaning that I had to wash it sooner than I normally would have done. However, if I was planning on styling my hair, such as curling it or putting it up, then this would work well because although your hair is clean, it's easier to style.

2. When I use it after I've washed my hair, I simply pour some onto my hand then rub my hands together and then run them through the ends of my hair. It doesn't make my hair greasy at all like some other hair oils do, and it makes it really soft to touch. 

My only criticism with this hair oil is the design of the bottle. It's a shame because it looks gorgeous on my dressing table with the glass and cork stopper. Yet, in reality, it's just not that practical as it can pour out too quickly and you end up pouring too much out- just a word of warning! Also, as pretty as the cork is, it doesn't feel very secure so I probably wouldn't take this away with me.

Overall, I really like this hair oil and how natural all the ingredients are, it feels like it's really good for my hair. I will use it on regular basis on the ends of my hair after washing it, and then now and again as a treatment. 

Price: £17.99*

  1. It looks gorgeous but I can imagine how practicality wise it's difficult to use, would love to use it as a treatment on my ends though! xxx
