Review
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.

Review
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.

Review
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.


Review: ORS™ Black Olive Oil Repair 7Conclusion
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.

    Wow! Even looking at the ingredients in the leave-in compared to the rinse-out conditioner, it doesn’t pack as big of a punch. Would you consider using the rinse-out conditioner as a leave-in conditioner?

    • Ammina Rose-LovinOurTextures.com says:

      Hey, thanks for visiting. The rinse-out conditioner is more for moisture and the leave-in is more smoothing and helps prepare the hair for heat styling. You can try and see if the rinse-out conditioner is suitable as a leave-in. I haven’t personally tried it, so it’s hard to say. If you try the rinse-out as a leave-in, let me know if you have great results or experience flaking or crunch.

    I used this elixir for the 1st time on 6/26/2018 and fell in love with this product. I used dark and lovely in the shades shimmering bronze and black mixed together about a week and a half ago. I have fine natural hair and this left my hair very weak, even more thin and dry. I was so disappointed. I went to my local beauty supply store looking for something to fix my hair and came across this gem. I went home and used it right away…..I was completely blown away, this elixir is like magic in a bottle. with one use my hair has been completely transformed from what it was…not 100% but about 60%. I am definitely going to continue using this product. Thanks ORS.
