There are oils everywhere but not many that boast of being formulated with baobab. The baobab tree is a tree found in Africa and is most commonly referred to as the “upside-down” tree. It can have have a lifespan of up to 6,000 years.
Free Your Mane Restorative Hair Oil is a natural, ultra-light oil that works best by cutting frizz almost completely out of the equation and leaves your natural hair very soft and smooth. We tried using this oil on wet hair right out of the shower after a wash and our leave-in (as directed), on damp hair after we’d washed and let our hair dry for a little bit and on dry hair. Each time we liked the results but found that it was easier to use on our damp and dry heads which didn’t leave our hair too greasy and sealed in moisture wonderfully.
In addition to being paraben free and formulated with baobab oil, it also contains argan, one of our favorite ultra-moisturizing oils, as well as anti-oxidant rich pomegranate seed oil and sweet almond oil. It’s also formulated with cones, which we don’t mind, and because of this, it works as a great product under gels, as a heat protectant for light blow outs and to get our twist and braid outs back in order after a bout of frizziness while leaving just the right amount of shine.
The smell reminds you of an apothecary – very rich and warm – and we have to admit, even the bottle is pretty. We really like the combination of moisturizing oils and silicones in Free Your Mane Baobab Brilliant Restorative Hair Oil and think it makes for a great combination when you need your oils to go to work a bit harder for your hair.
