FOREST & SHORE - HALLELUJAH HAIR OIL: A REVIEW*

I was kindly sent the 'Hallelujah Hair Oil' from Forest & Shore to try out. Forest & Shore is a newly launched natural, 100% organic and cruelty free skin/ haircare brand made in England. My hair has been a bit of an unmanageable frizzy mess throughout the Summer so this couldn't have arrived at a better time. I have tried a multitude of different hair oils over the years without really getting anywhere so I was excited to see if this new product would tick all the boxes and sort my unruly hair out once and for all and it did just that. 

The product contains a blend of Olive, Sesame, Coconut, Arnica, Rosemary & Lavender essential oils. The hair oil is free from any harsh chemicals meaning it is high quality, natural & effective and made only from nature. The packaging is beautifully designed and the product comes in a glass bottle with a pipette to dispense. I don't know what it is but I'm a bit of a sucker for a pipette and it's also super handy to make sure you use exactly the right amount of product without going overboard. 


The hair oil can be used in two ways which is something that really intrigued me. Primarily it can be used after you've washed your hair by dispensing 2-5 drops into the palm of your hands and then evenly applying it to the mid lengths and ends of your towel dried hair. You can then brush your hair through with a wide-tooth comb, dry and style as normal. You can also use it as an Intense Hair Reboot Treatment. You can do this by dispensing 2-3 full pipettes and then massaging it into the scalp, mid lengths and the ends of your hair. You can then go ahead and brush your hair through with a wide-tooth comb, get some sleep and wash it out the following day. 

I was very impressed with both the regular use and the overnight treatment of this hair oil. There was also absolutely no build up after leaving the product in overnight and it washed out really easily the next morning without leaving my hair looking greasy or weighed down. 


This oil not only works wonders on my hair but it smells incredible too, there is something very relaxing about the combination of rosemary & lavender. My hair definitely put this product through it's paces, I put my hands up and admit I probably use way too much heat on my hair for my own good but I have definitely noticed my hair is a lot easier to style and it is a lot less damaged and frazzled at the ends than it was.

All of the ingredients in this product are natural & organic which means this oil is the most effective in restoring damaged hair. The penetrating oils are said to work deep into the hair shaft repairing broken, brittle hair & smoothing the follicles leaving you with silky, conditioned hair. I really like how each ingredient in this hair oil has been carefully selected because of the different benefits that come with it, all of which I can most definitely vouch for.  

ORGANIC COCONUT OIL - A hydrating, nourishing oil that is easily absorbed into the hair. Coconut oil keeps the hair proteins locked in to encourage strong, healthy hair growth which is pretty amazing in itself.

ORGANIC SESAME OIL- A highly penetrating oil working from the inside out, protecting your hair from damaging heat & UV rays. This is pretty good because it not only protects your hair from your straighteners but everyday damage from the sun too. 

ORGANIC OLIVE OIL- Rich in vitamin A, E and antioxidants, which protects the keratin, sealing in moisture. It is also an essential ingredient for those who suffer with frizzy, brittle hair. Since using this product my halo of frizz that can sometimes appear on super humid days has pretty much disappeared and the ends of my hair have become so much stronger than they once were. 

ORGANIC SUNFLOWER OIL- Contains omega 9, an important fatty acid to stop breakage and help hair growth. It also adds shine and leaves your hair feeling silky soft. I've very much noticed the shine, the silky softness of my hair and the strength of the ends of my hair increase significantly. 

ORGANIC ARNICA EXTRACT- This has great rejuvenating properties for the scalp which helps combat dandruff and itchiness. It also stimulates and strengthens the hair follicles and prevents any early hair loss which is amazing. In the past I've found a combination of shampoo, conditioner and hair oil can really irritate my scalp but this hair oil is so gentle and even when I left it on as a hair mask overnight there was no discomfort of irritation there at all. 


Overall I was super impressed with this product, it was exactly what I needed to sort my hair out and I will definitely be purchasing this oil in the future. I've noticed a significant change in the texture and the condition of my hair after years of struggling to find the right hair oil for me. A little goes a long way and you get so much product which will last me for quite a while. I also think this hair oil would be ideal to take on holiday to protect your hair from the UV rays & the chlorine. You also can't beat the quality of the ingredients and the company's ethics. I love the fact Forest & Shore are organic & cruelty free as well as being made in England.

Hallelujah Hair Oil is available from Amazon for £10.99 here.

I would just like to say a massive thank you to Emily @ Forest & Shore for giving me the opportunity to try this hair oil out. I can't wait to see what other products Forest & Shore launch in the future. 

Thank you for reading
Until next time,
