Summer Hair: OGX Weightless Hydration Coconut Water Trio

There are few things for me that epitomise the summer scent, but coconut is sure one of them. The coconut water trend has literally blown up over the last year or so, and although I absolutely despise it as a drink, subjecting my hair to it is an absolute dream; delectable, coconutty goodness! The lovely team at OGX kindly popped me over their take on the ingredient in the form of the OGX Weightless Hydration Coconut Water* range, comprising Shampoo, Conditioner and Hydration Oil. Now I have these products firmly in my shower line-up, I will be busy washing my hair for the foreseeable future when faced with an unappealing social invitation. If I wasn't unsociable previously, I am now. At least when I do step outside, passers by will be basked in my coconut-emitting aura.

So, what does the bottle say? "Drench your dehydrated strands in this ultra-light blend of weightless hydrating coconut water, combined with nutrient rich coconut oil to transform dry, parched hair into silky, shiny perfection". When I first read that, I was most certainly sold. Purely because it transported me to an island in which I would be stood, showering in a waterfall stream consequently surrounded by coconut trees, swinging my neck and hair around as if I were in some kind of hair commercial. Yes, I know, never going to become a reality; I don't need to be told twice. That being said, my hair does feel swathed in hydration when I use this, and I almost get an extra whiff of pineapples - It really is summer in a bottle. I also love the fact that the formula is clear; it makes the bottles look very chic. I really admire a brand when it dresses up a simple product like shampoo, it really does thrill me - it's the little things guys, the little things. I must also say that the weightless bit is a claim that has rung true; my hair feels super hydrated yet entirely weightless, not congealed or heavy like some shampoos and conditioners can make the hair feel. The only downside to these is that they contain sulphates, which I have been warned aren't ideal for colour treated hair. That being said, they do advertise that they are colour safe, and I haven't noticed my colour fading any faster than usual. For £6.99 each (£7.35 for the oil), I can see myself going through these and continuously re-purchasing. I have another variety from the brand to try - there are so many different ones for a number of hair types/concerns, and definitely something for everybody. The oil is a nice little after touch, that extra little splash of hydration, but if I am truthful, I do feel - possibly due to the dryness in texture - that my hair eats it up and needs a stronger argan-based oil on the ends to really make a difference post blow-dry.

To conclude, if you're looking for summer in a bottle and love a strong tropical scent of coconut and pineapple, I would highly recommend you try these. The smell alone will leave you wanting to wash your hair at any given opportunity.

  1. I've been wanting to try these, but the fact it's clear scares me a bit. I like my shampoos to look a lot more moisturizing since my hair is pretty dry. But then again... the smell sounds right up my street! Ha!
