Review: VO5 Miracle Concentrate Hair Oil

Today, I'm reviewing the VO5 Miracle Concentrate Elixir with Argan Oil. I across this in Superdrug for about £5 which I thought was a great price for a hair oil since most bottles of the same amount are around £10 each or more.

I put my hair through hell with styling. It is a pain because it's so frizzy and my curls don't form as well as they used to. That said, I generally still love styling it anyway.

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 pipette which helps control the amount you wish to apply. I like to apply half a pipette 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 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 had pre-washed my hair the day before. I wanted to test it to see if I could control my hair a little on a dull day when I was most prone to a bad hair day and frizz.

This was the before and after results:

Person with frizzy hairPerson with smoother hair

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. Dry or damp, it does two different jobs with one product. It's a perfect product to have and this is definitely something I will purchase again when I run out. 

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.
