ZAYA Hair Oil Review ♥
Zaya Oils is a brand I’d read about so many times before on countless other blogs and websites so when I finally got the chance to try out some of their gorgeous Hair Oil, I was pretty psyched! If you’re unfamiliar with Zaya Oils, they’re a Canadian made green beauty brand which focuses on fusing the natural beauty world with all things elegant and chic. Their packaging is artistic, feminine, and made from 100% recycled paper and are so well made that ZAYA wants you to keep them and use them to hold your jewelry and other pretty things! I thought this would be kind of weird given it’s just the box, but when I received this in the mail, I immediately understood why. The box really is so well made that I don’t mind holding onto it and storing my cute odds and in inside. Aside from that lovely bonus, all products from their line are lovingly manufactured in Toronto by PhD. chemists with over 15 years of experience in the natural skincare industry using only the finest natural, wild-harvested, and organic ingredients to create products that are not only beautiful, but also effective and efficient. They also hold themselves to the highest standards of manufacturing that’s both cruelty free and eco-friendly.
The first thing I noticed about this gorgeous hair oil is the scent of it. It smells amazing! Sexy, spicy, and a little flora, this hair oil feels so luxurious to use. The first time I used it, I used it as a pre-shampoo treatment by applying a few drops to my ends and a few drops massaged into my scalp. Both my boyfriend and his sister commented on how amazing I smelled almost immediately. My boyfriend normally comments on how weird and herbal I smell so this is really a step up for me! Aside from smelling great, the oil really does nourish hair and helps combat frizz. I noticed that when used as a pre-shampoo treatment, it helps my hair to dry with less flyaways and more shine, but it won’t weigh my hair down like a lot of oils do. On top of that, when used on my ends, it doesn’t make them look oily or stringy; instead it just keeps my hair from looking super wispy or frizzy which is something of an issue for me. I think I personally enjoy this one as a pre-shampoo treatment more than anything because it leaves my hair smelling amazing – the scent is very noticeable – and also I get the hydration, nourishment, and shine without any issues of getting oily hair or scalp. It’s not that this oil is heavy because it isn’t; it’s just that I have trouble determining the right amount for my hair. I have a LOT of hair, but it’s all very fine-medium and, on top of that, my scalp is very oily already so it’s been difficult for me balancing the amount I need to control frizz and also seal ends, but not make my hair look greasy. I’ll update once I find the sweet spot, but for now, I’m more comfortable using this as a pre-shampoo treatment or on damp hair right before blow drying and straightening my hair because the heat styling helps dry up excess oil for me and the oil makes my hair look silky smooth and beautiful.
