Review: VO5 Miracle Concentrate Hair Oil

A while ago I wrote a post about what hair oil to try, and eventually decided that I'd like to try the cheaper VO5 Miracle Concentrate Elixir with Argan Oil. I came to the decision when I found it in Superdrug for about £5 which I thought is a steal for hair oil... since most bottles of the same amount are around £10 each or more.

Superdrug - £5.19

I put my hair through hell with styling. It is a pain because it easily frizzes, my curls don't form as well as they used to and I generally love styling it anyway. So with washing, brushing, drying and styling my hair I'm putting it in major danger of damaging it and sometimes shampoo and conditioner isn't enough. VO5 Miracle Concentrate Elixir with Argan Oil is an 'intensive leave in treatment' that hydrates hair and conditions it and after using this for a couple of weeks I feel like my hair is a lot healthier and easier to manage.

As you can see it comes in a small bottle with the pippet which helps control the amount you wish to apply. I like to apply half a pippet full, as it is just enough. There are two ways of applying this; You can apply to damp hair before drying or on dry hair to tame and add shine.
I first tried it and applied it to my hair damp before blow drying. I found that my hair felt healthier and softer instantly once dry. I expected to be slightly disappointed as an oil product, as I expected my hair to come out a little greasy but it really didn't. It felt hydrated instead, like it was being fed all the nutrients and vitamins needed! So I was very impressed with the results with damp hair application.
On dry hair, I was just as impressed with results. I used it when I has pre-washed my hair the day before. I wanted to test it for controlling my hair on a dull day when I was most prone to a bad hair day and frizz and this was the before and after results....!

I brushed my hair through, and then applied the oil running it through with my fingers from top to tip and it really controls it and reduces frizz and adds shine and definition; Something I lack when I'm having a bad hair day.

Again, I was really impressed and it does everything it says it should do. I really am impressed because dry or damp it does two different jobs with one product. It's a perfect product to have in your collection for hair care products and this is definitely something I will purchase again when I run out. I've recently got more into my hair care products and VO5 have never failed me. I really want to try some of their other products like the high volume weather resist hairspray and extra body mousse for styling!

Would you try VO5's Hair Oil and do you have any VO5 products you love?

  1. I have tried this and you are so right about the smell! I love it!

    It was not my favorite oil because of the consitency, but my hair type is different from yours, actually opposite! I have thick hair, but not much of it with frizz, and it is very coarse. I think for my type of hair it is a good oil, but not the best.
