Review: ORS™ Black Olive Oil Repair 7
I won 3 of the 5 products from the ORS™ Black Olive Oil Repair 7 line in a giveway from ORS™. Those products includes the Sulfate Free Shampoo, Rinse Out Conditioner, and Leave-In Conditioner. This line promises to achieve 7 results: Thermal protection, shine, frizz control, anti-breakage, strengthen, reconstruct, and add body. Watch the video above to see these product in motion. Currently, these products can be purchased at Target (in-store and online) and Amazon.com.

I do not use shampoo often as it makes my scalp flake, and this shampoo was no exception. However, I really liked it for my hair solely. My hair was cleansed really well and not stripped. This shampoo was very moisturizing. It did not leave my hair feeling squeaky nor thirsty. Only a small amount of this shampoo is needed for use and the bottle will last a VERY long time. Also, many shampoos tend to make my hair tangled, this shampoo did not do that and had great slip.

The directions of this conditioner suggest to use a generous amount and I found myself doing just that. The more conditioner that I used, the more slip and hydration my hair felt. I love this conditioner for the results, but the amount that I had to use is the downside of this product.Three to four uses is the most that I can get from this product which is about a month’s worth of use.
Rating: 3.5 out of 5 | Retail Price: $8.99 for 8.5 oz. | pH: 6
Ingredients: Water, Cyclomethicone, Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Olive Oil, Glyoxyloyl Carbocysteine, Glyoxyloyl Keratin Amino Acids, Dimethiconol, DMDM Hydantoin, Fragrance, Benzyl Alcohol, Citral, Limonene, Linalool, Geraniol, Yellow #5
This product did not work well for my hair when applying/working in sections. I found better results when I generously sprayed it all over my hair right after the rinse out conditioner. When working in sections, certain sections were beginning to dry which did not work well with this leave-in conditioner. It worked way better on soaking wet hair or dry hair. Though I loved the results of this product, I found myself using quite a lot of the product. Just like the rinse out conditioner, I would get about 3-4 uses of this product. The fact that the product is not fully emulsified is a bit annoying. I had to shake up the product several times during one use.
When I actually followed the directions on each product’s label, I received great results. My hair achieved all of the 7 benefits that the product line promised. My hair looked shiny and felt moisturized, strengthened, and had body. I did not use another product for heat protection outside of the ORS™ Black Olive Oil Repair 7 line. I wanted to see if it actually had thermal protection. Surprisingly it did and my hair did not have damage from the curling wand. However, I would not personally use a flat iron with this system, just to be on the safe side. The ORS™ Black Olive Oil Repair 7 Leave-In Treatment may be more suitable for flat-ironing.
This line is more moisturizing than the original ORS™ Olive Oil line. So if your hair is protein-sensitive, then you have nothing to worry about. Silicones are very present in all of the products in this line. However, if you were to use the line in its entirety, the silicones will not negatively affect your hair. All of the products worked cohesively to give my hair great results. Also, each product contains fragrance which is consistent throughout the line and smells sweet but not fruity. I may purchase this line in the future. For more information about these products visit orshaircare.com.
