The ORS Monoi Oil collection looks great and features a wide range of products, for a full list of products in the collection, check out my previous post.
I was sent the new shampoo and conditioner for a review a while back and I can finally bring you my thoughts on it. I will be reviewing the Monoi Oil Edge Control too. All the products I have feature Omega 3 & 6 which seems to be the main ingredient and has anti breakage and moisture properties.
The Fortifying Shampoo smells nice and has a runny consistency. It cleansed my scalp and hair really well without stripping it of its moisture. I used a fair amount to get a lot of suds which had a little slip to it which I was able to finger detangle easily with. After lathering my hair felt very soft.
The Fortifying Conditioner has the same scent as the shampoo and has a nice thick consistency. It has a good amount of slip which meant I was able to detangle quite easily with it, both with my tangle teezer brush and my wide tooth comb. The downside is because it’s quite thick I found it difficult to get it out of the bottle- cue hitting the bottle besides the sink and lots of shaking lol. Also it’s quite small- only 296ml! It made my hair really soft though, like butter soft! I always deep condition with heat for about 10 minutes with it.
The Anti Breaking Edge Control Hair Gel – I really like this! It claims to have a flexible hold which I find to be true because my edges are still laid when I take of my wig at the end of the day. It doesn’t melting during the day either! It is soft in the tub which I really like compared to most edge controls which are quite hard. I apply with a tooth brush and smooth it down with my fingers. If I have time to spare I will tie my hair down with a scarf but it’s good to go without that too. I believe its alcohol free (I lost the packaging it came in). I find most edge control gels work on slight damp hair but this works great on both damp and dry hair. Only thing is you can get some white flakes when you use it on top of other products.
I really like this! The shampoo is great for detangling (actually says this on the product) and smells really nice. I really liked how soft it made my hair feel after rinsing. The conditioner is another favourite! The slip it gives is amazing! The only thing I wish they would change is the packaging or the size! I also prefer this edge control to their Olive Oil edge control. With regards to the anti-breakage properties, I haven’t really noticed a difference in the amount of hair shed during wash day- it’s been the same.
