Old Wives Tail - Luxury Hair Treatment review.

Hi there!

I've had a lush weekend back home in sleepy Devon and back in Cardiff which is on lockdown for Obama and other world leaders' arrival for the Nato conference. You will have to twitter-search or Google to get the full effect of what it's like here at the moment but it resembles the film 'Children of Men' or a Zombie apocalypse survival town. Police with guns, giant mental fences and people filter-systems - Scary!

Anyway onto something a little more light-hearted, today I have to show off a luxury hair treatment from Old Wives Tail (I think the spelling mistake is deliberate here!)

Organic Clove and Jojoba Organic Oil Treatment*

The first thing that caught my attention with this brand is that it is 100% animal friendly and 10% of profits go to charities that are stopping animal testing and protecting animals from it. The packaging insn't that striking however it's true to it's natural and organic roots which is always good.

This hair treatment is mean't for hair that is brittle, dull and broken (exactly like mine!), I found it hit and miss for a few reasons (mostly totally my own fault) and here is why:

First up you have to leave the treatment on for an hour - now finding an hour in my day where I have nothing to do except sit with treatment on my damp hair is hard BUT I managed it! Then I'm pretty sure because it felt like I wasn't using alot of product/it wasn't going far, ending in me using WAY too much. Instead of massaging it into my scalp as instructed I actually put it all over the ends of my hair (as I thought I'd put it on the part that needed the treatment rather than the parts I felt didn't) which after the wash-out left my hair pretty greasy.

The plus side is my hair smelt amazing and felt super soft, so if I find another spare hour at some point and re-try this I will definitely follow the instructions properly and hope for real results :)

Do you have any dry/broken hair treatment miracles you can share with me? I really need them!



  1. Witty name!

    I bleached my hair for the first time a few months ago, and it was crispy fried :| I used this Pantene mask for a whole month (I think it was a Japanese version) and it was great! Really helped my hair recover :)

  2. I'm pretty sure I need to try this! My hair in such bag condition. Just had a look at some of the Cardiff snaps on Twitter - crazy!

  3. I did the same and used too much of it. I washed my hair 3 times and still felt the weight of it when my hair dried. When I washed my hair the next day though it felt great!
    Think it works well, but really need to work on my application technique.....

  4. I've heard so many amazing things about this brand, I haven't tried it yet though! As you know coconut oil and olive oil do wonders for my hair! xxx
