FOM Revitalising Hair Serum

I received this sample of Revitalising Hair Serum in a SoukSouk beauty box a good few months ago and haven't got around to reviewing it. For me, finding cleaner hair care alternatives has been one of the hardest things to get right. My hair has two issues, oily roots and dry ends, both are equally troublesome. My hair is very fine and very fussy. I am prone to dry and split ends because of the length of it. Whilst the ends cry out for moisture, most hair oils and serums have simply been to heavy. I have learned the hard way that things like coconut or argan oil just don't work for me.
Revitalising Hair Serum is a very light serum. It has a subtle chamomile fragrance, which although isn't my favourite, isn't strong enough to put me off. It is made with jojoba, rosehip, buritti, manketti, and passionflower oils as well as olive squaline. It delivers a big injection of moisture, without any heaviness. Most of the natural hair oils I have tried, just sit on my hair, weighing it down and leaving it greasy. I can't tell you how pleased to find something that works as well as this.
I have had this sample for several months and it is surprising just how far it goes. I have had chance to have a good play with it, and have been impressed with how versatile it is. I have been able to use it as a pre wash treatment. This is unheard of for me - most oils need numerous washes to get it all out. A couple of drops added to my conditioner works well, as does a few drops neat to damp hair. Revitalising Hair Serum smoothes and softens my hair, but leaves it shiny and much more manageable. Would I buy this again? I already have.

  1. What an interesting blend of oils, sounds like a brilliant treatment I am a fan of FOM I think the formulations are very well thought out :) Xx

  2. I definitely want to try more from them too Ana, I am very impressed with what I have tried so far x

  3. Great review! I found this a little bit heavy for my hair but I've got very fine hair. Glad to hear you've found something that suits your hair x

  4. I like this too! I love using it just as a de-frizzer when I've finished styling my hair :)

  5. This sounds lovely and I am keen to try something from FOM as I have seen a lot about them recently.
