Lovebirds' Summer Beauty Review: Honey Curls Hair Honey Oil Blend

Disclosure: I received a sample of Honey Curls' Hair Honey Oil Blend for review purposes. All opinions expressed are my own.
See that picture up there on the far right in my Summer Beauty collage? That's my Lil Lovebird giving Honey Curls Hair Honey Oil Blend a try. The oil is just what it says - a mixture of several luscious oils:
  • Canola seed oil
  • Sweet almond oil
  • Jojoba oil
  • Meadowfoam seed oil
  • Wheat germ oil
  • Shea oil
  • Borage oil
  • Olea Europaea oil
  • Coconut oil
  • Karanji oil organic
When Honey Curls reached out to me to review the Honey Oil blend I appreciated that there aren't any parabens, sulfates, petroleum or artificial ingredients in their products. When the oil arrived it was in a tall flask - it was a generous amount that I've even found beneficial to use on my skin especially because it has a neutral smell.

I decided to use the Honey Oil Blend in two ways on my Lil Love Bird's hair:

1) As an enhancement to her conditioner during her weekly wash

I love the sheen the oil helped give her hair and the manageability to create this style 
2) As a baggying/overnight oil treatment

I applied the oil to her hair and worked it in - it was completely saturated
Before bed - it did not stay on the whole night (she abhors anything covering her head!)
The next morning
Overall I have to say I preferred the #1 method - Nia's hair soaks up pretty much anything I put in it and at her age it's hard to keep a cap on in addition to the baggy (if you can't tell by the look on her face!). Since I'm still transitioning and wearing extensions, the oil is too heavy for me to use now, but when I'm done with my transitioning journey at the end of '14 I look forward to revisiting Honey Curls for myself. 

Interested in trying Honey Curls Honey Oil Blend? An 8oz bottle can be purchased on their website for $20.

Have you tried baggying? Which oil treatments work best on your hair?
