I was really lucky to be invited to the launch of the Grow Gorgeous Strengthening Oil. Unfortunately I couldn’t make it but they very kindly sent me some products to sample. I have been wanting to try out Grow Gorgeous for ages but I never got round to it so I couldn’t wait to give the Back Into The Roots Masque, Strenghtening Oil and the Hair Growth Serum a go.
The first product I tried was the Back Into The Roots 10 Minutes Stimulating Scalp Masque. It works to boost circulation and lift roots. It is infused with burdock root, hyaluronic acid, vitamins and caffeine. As soon as I unscrewed the cap I was enveloped in the scent of cooling menthol. I massaged a generous amount into my scalp and left it on for about 10 minutes. It cools your scalp immediately which felt lovely given that I have just got back from a run and was roasting. I’m also going to try it the next time I have a migraine as I think the cooling and the scent of mint would really help. When it came to rinsing it off my scalp felt so clean and fresh. I often get eczema on my scalp and I found it really soothed it so the masque is a definite winner.
I really felt that this would be the perfect product for me, I used to use hair oils but got out of the habit of it. I used to have all my hair bleached blonde but have more recently gone back to highlights. This means that the bottom four inches of my hair are still saturated in bleach and are prone to being seriously dry (read straw like). I am actually keen to go back to all over bleach as I just love having white hair so I have high hopes that the Strengthening Oil will help. The oil should help the elasticity of my hair and improve its strength. It says to apply on damp or dry hair so I went for damp as I find that my hair absorbs it better this way. There was no greasy feeling and it didn’t weigh my hair down. I also find that by putting it on before I blow dry my hair that my hair actually dries faster and it helps to protect it from the heat. I will definitely keep using this product and would recommend it to anyone with damaged hair like me.
The serum works to increase the density of individual hairs to give the appearance of thicker, fuller hair. I naturally have very thick hair so I’m not sure if I will get the same level of results. I have used it a couple of times since I have received it but not really long enough to see much difference so I will be sure to keep you updated on my progress!
I was impressed by Grow Gorgeous overall. I love their stylish branding with the funny illustrations on each box, and all of the products smell amazing. I will definitely continue to use the Strengthening Oil and the Scalp Masque. What also impressed me about the brand is that the Strengthening Oil contains Amazonian Brazil Nut and Sacha Inchi oils which have been sustainably sourced. Knowing that they care about their impact on the environment makes me love Grow Gorgeous that little bit more.
