Glass reviews Fable & Mane HoliRoots Hair Oil


SCALP care. It’s a thing, and it’s a thing beyond looking at your roots and thinking they need “doing” and three lockdowns in, I’m all about the roots and the long-term strength of them. For people who dye, like myself, the roots and scalp are exposed the longest to harsh chemicals, so if there is a way to minimise that damage, I am all for it.

For people who don’t dye, using Fable & Mane Holi Roots Hair Oil this is still a treat and possibly a preventative measure from future trouble and a barrier to, central heating, stress and pollution.  That stuff shows in your hair, big time.

Fable & Mane Hair Oil

The suggestion is for self-massage into the scalp, some time prior to washing, and you can leave it in overnight. Now self-massage is never as good as someone else doing it, but with this, it doesn’t seem to matter. Lightly and pleasantly scented, this oil combines the Ayurvedic medicinal ingredients of ashwagandha and dashmool, which offer strengthening and toning properties.

For best results, they suggest leaving it in overnight, but it can be used on partially dry hair as a super-charged conditioner.  I left it in overnight, slept like a baby and woke like a warrior, with silky, not greasy hair.

For those with oiler hair, it works as a preamble to washing and conditioning. For those like myself, with dry hair, if you apply it lightly you don’t need to rinse it out, and you smell nice as well, and feel like a warrior, from the neck up. What’s not to love?
