A few weeks ago, I was contacted by Forest & Shore to sample their Hallelujah Hair Oil. A cruelty-free, vegan and all-organic hair product? Obviously, I was all in. Over the last two weeks, I’ve been trialling Hallelujah Hair Oil in my usual hair care routine, and I’m so pleased with it that I just have to share it with you in more detail!
Easy to order
Hallelujah Hair Oil ships from Amazon*, so ordering is simple and delivery is quick. The only thing that does seem to happen is that stock runs out from time-to-time, so if you’re planning to order but get a pesky out-of-stock notice, keep an eye on Forest & Shore’s social channels – they’re very good at keeping everyone updated!
One of my biggest bug-bears is excess packaging. Layers and layers of plastic, shrink-wrap… you name it, there’s way too much of it about. Fortunately, Hallelujah Hair Oil has none of that. The outer box is card, and the bottle is glass. Both are fully recyclable. The only bit of plastic is on the bottle’s dropper, a significantly small amount than most similar hair products. Plus, the bottle will last so long that you’ll only throw it away at very infrequent intervals. Which leads me to…
So £15 isn’t a crazy amount of money for a luxury hair product, but it’s not really cheap, either. However, the product has completely replaced conditioner for me, which removes another bottle of plastic from my bathroom and cuts out a relatively frequent expense. It will also last you for a really, really long time. I’ve been using it for two weeks straight and I can’t even see a dip in the level of product in the bottle yet. I’m estimating that my Hallelujah Hair Oil will last me at least a year.
The most important part, of course! I have really fine hair, which is prone to feeling weighed down and greasy. At the same time, I also have ombré lengths, which has left my hair prone to dryness. If I skip my conditioner, my hair is brittle and unmanageable. If I use it, it instantly feels greasy and lacks volume. I can’t win! Since receiving the oil, I’ve skipped the conditioner in the shower, and apply three drops of oil to my hair before brushing and blow-drying. I didn’t expect to have such dramatic results, but this has made a huge difference to my hair care routine: my hair is manageable and stays supple, but there’s no greasiness or heaviness. My hair lasts three days between washes with no dry shampoo – hurrah!
