WELLA – Luminous Smoothening Oil for frizzing hair

Brand: Wella Professionals
Cosmetic: Oil Reflections

Luxurious hair care cosmetics are characteristic to Wella Professionals, this is why this brand is recognisable all over the world. Oil Reflections Luminous Smoothening Oil is a smoothing hair oil created for all hair types. It will work well both on fine and thick hair. The curly and straight hair. Healthy and damaged.

However, the best results can be observed on frizzing, unruly, rough, requiring smoother hair.

It is worth to dedicate a moment to analyse the composition. Wella Oil Reflections’ composition is brief, but contrary to the appearances there are fit also other ingredients than oils. There are three natural oils. These were complemented by other, not necessarily good ingredients, though the natural oils are responsible for the cosmetic’s action.

  • coconut oil (Cocos Nucifera Oil) – penetrates hair bulbs, nourishes and complements nourishing ingredients deficit as well as seals hair cuticles, provides softness and gloss.
  • macadamia oil (Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil) – regenerates dry scalp and hair, moisturises and smoothers due to great absorption.
  • avocado oil (Persea Gratissima Oil) – nourishes and regenerates, eliminates free radicals ensuring rejuvenation, indicates protective action, moisturises and strengthens.

Three oils mix with curious properties is definitely a plus of Wella Oil Reflections Luminous Smoothening Oil. It was enriched with vitamin E, known for its antioxidant and rejuvenating properties. Unfortunately, in the short composition are also silicones, which can contribute to weighting down and oily hair. Right next to these is alcohol with drying action. Not only this composition makes it probable that the result will be far from looked-for one, but also can cause irritations and allergies.

Wella Oil Reflections in smoothing version is a universal oil with medium thickness. Despite of the formula being velvety and coat hair with delicate film, the product may weight strands down if applied in excess amounts. Use it in moderated amounts to avoid oily hair. If used this way, it is efficient, because for obtaining the expected result not much product is needed. The aroma is pleasing, sweet and fruity.

Wella Luminous Smoothening Oil has standard volume, 100 ml/3.4. fl. oz. Its prize, however, is much lower than many other luxurious products. Nonetheless, the cost is adequate to the action. Besides, Wella Oil Reflections has elegant design. Glass and solid bottle has beige and golden touches. For application is dedicated convenient pump. Sadly, the use of glass for greasy oil is not entirely good idea.
