LOVE BEAUTY & PLANET
I had never heard of this brand before, So I was pretty excited to test a new line of products from a brand I had never used before.
After receiving my package I read more one their website and on the packaging, and I’m impressed. They use recycled plastic for their packaging, they are cruelty free & Vegan.
“Love Beauty and Planet was started by a group of like-minded people who believe that looking good and doing good should go hand-in-hand. We are obsessed with fantastic beauty products, those that we would love to use ourselves too.”
COCONUT OIL & YLANG YLANG HOPE AND REPAIR – 3 IN 1 BENEFIT OIL
First of all, the directions on the packaging are mildly confusing, ”Spread 1-2 pumps of oil evenly through wet hair using your hands and (obviously) work it, avoid roots”. I assumed like Moroccan oil it was a leave in type of thing, you put it in wet hair after you shower and than continue with your normal routine (for me, blow drying and than straightening). However when I looked up the directions on their website it says
• Using your fingers, divide your hair into sections.
• Apply a coating of Hope & Repair Oil throughout each section. Make sure to put oil though every layer of your hair.
• Wash out in the shower with Hope & Repair Shampoo and Conditioner.
So I ended up re washing my hair after reading it’s a wash out oil, I feel the directions on the packaging weren’t clear on that and reading the other reviews on Chick Advisor it’s clear I wasn’t the only one who assumed it was meant to be after you finished washing your hair.
But the product it’s self I adore it, my hair felt very smooth after putting it in, I ended up using 3 pumps but my hair is fairly long and thick.. It was easy to apply evenly and I love the pump itself I find some pumps are to powerful or give to much product however this one was very gentle and a nice amount of product was given.
I again was super excited to receive the Coconut & Ylang Ylang Collection since coconut is my favourite scent, and these products smell incredible. My hair smells wonderful even after sleeping and hours later it still has a noticeable coconut scent.
The packaging is sturdy and well made (also made from 100% recycled plastic!) it’s also well designed, very cute and eye catching.
Looking at my dead ends today (I really need a trim) they look a lot healthier, my hair feels healthier and feels like it has more volume and it’s shiner and soft, after just one use so I’m excited to use it more.
I’d rate it a 4.5 simply because the directions on the packaging could be better, but I still love the product so far and will continue to use it and would recommend it to anyone who has dry or damaged hair and or loves using hair oils and loves coconut!.
