When I went to get my bangs trimmed a couple weeks ago my stylist gave me a sample of Orofluido Beauty Elixer (regularly $32 for a 3.38-oz. bottle) and raved on and on about how it was to going to change my life, starting with my hair.
I’d never heard of Orofluido before, but it’s a small indie haircare line a little more popular in Europe than here in the States. They only list two products on their website — the Beauty Elixer that my stylist gave me, and something new called Shine Spray.
The company claims their mix of argan, linseed and Egyptian Cyperus oils (not cypress like the tree) leave hair “silky and disciplined.”
Music to my ears, ma!
My stylist suggested putting a few drops on damp hair before blow drying (or flat ironing) to add volume and shine.
The product’s much, much thicker than I expected. I put a few drops in my palms, rub them together and then work the oil through my wavy, highlighted hair.
To say I’m impressed would be an understatement. HOLY WOW! This stuff sure pumps up the volume. Typically when I take a blow dryer and flat iron to my head the hair at my crown lies flat, but after using Orofuido my hair has plenty of extra lift and movement. I mean, I’m not used to hair with this much volume. It’s so big that it might even exert its own gravitational pull, for reals!
I did this style last week using a blowdryer, a flat iron and Orofluido Beauty Elixer
The product also tames stray hairs, adds loads of shine, softens and imparts a wonderful warm amber and vanilla scent. I can hardly believe that one product can do so many different things. It’s just awesome.
If you’d to give it a try and can’t find it at your salon, you can also order it online, or call the company’s customer service line for help tracking it down, at 1-800-598-2730.
I found it carried by a company called brightonbeautysupply.com for $32 for a 3.38-oz. bottle. Each order also includes three samples, too, which is a nice touch.
If you’re trying to stay away from silicones, brace yourself, but it does contain cyclopentasiloxane, cyclotetrasiloxane and dimethiconol… and they happen to be the top three ingredients on the list.
I’m hoping Beauty Elixer makes its way into larger beauty chains soon because I think it’s downright amazing.
PRICE: about $32 for a 3.38-oz. bottle
