TRESemme Oil Elixir review

TRESemme make really good value hair products, so when they mentioned they were bringing out a new, more premium oil for hair, I was really intrigued to see what this would be like.

The new Oil Elixir* is a dry oil, and can be used on damp hair for extra moisture pre-styling, or on dry hair for a smoothing effect post styling. There are two formulations - one designed for coloured hair and the other for uncoloured hair.

I've been testing out the formula for uncoloured hair which contains Macadamia oil and Babassu oil and it smells divine! I usually apply 2-3 pumps to towel dry hair and then style my hair as usual. It leaves hair with a really glossy finish, but doesn't make it greasy at all, A bonus for someone like me with fine hair which is easily weighed down The packaging feels really luxurious and the oil comes in a 100ml glass bottle. Surpisingly though, Oil Elixir will only set you back £9.99, which is very good value! You will need to use a good clarifying shampoo if you use the oil on a regular basis as like a lot of these products it does contain silicone.

I was lucky enough to ask TRESemme's lead stylist Matthew Curtis a few questions about his top tips for using the oil and the hair trends for the upcoming season.

Kat: What are your favourite ways to use the new TRESemme oil? 
Matthew: 'The new TRESemme Oil Elixir is great as it’s so light it means it’s a really versatile product to use on different looks. If you’re creating a sleek on trend pony tail, you can apply the oil to the ends to give a glossy expensive finish. An amazing tip is to add the oil to the hair as a finishing touch to loose tumbling curls for extra shine.'

Kat: What are your top tips for keeping hair in great condition?
Matthew: 'You wouldn't go out with dirty clothes, or make up you have slept in the night before, so why would you go out with your hair looking anything other than amazing. Keeping your skin in good condition involves a lot of rituals and routines twice a day and can be a hassle, where as to keep you hair in good condition it’s so simple. A good hair mask once a week, such as TRESemme Keratin Smooth Masque, which you can leave in whilst doing your house is sometimes all you need to do to make your hair instantly feel healthier. This along with having regular visits to the hair dressers using a good heat protect spray such as TRESemme Heat Protection Spray should keep your hair feeling amazing for longer.'

Kat: Are there any hair trends for AW13 we should keep an eye out for? 
Matthew: 'This A/W you will see all those soft, loose Grecian inspired updos from last season, have transformed into strong bold statements shaped with pony tails and buns, perfect for lasting all night straight into the evening. It may only be the brave who go that step further and match this with the on trend wet look, using TRESemme 24hour Body Amplifying Mousse, but it still works well to keep it slightly softer if you’re not feeling so brave.'

TRESemme Oil Elixir will be hitting the shelves in the next few weeks - will you be trying it out?
