Badger Seabuckthorn Hair Oil Review

A little over a month ago I did an introductory post for Badger's new hair oils, and I mistakenly wrote that I was going to try it out for a week before writing a review.  I went back and re-read the information that I had been sent, though, and realized that they wanted me to use it for a month before writing up my review, since it's recommended that the oils be used once a week.  So I did, and here goes the review!

I'm familiar with hair oils, but it wasn't something I used until recently (when argan oil became such a fad).  I still don't use them on a regular basis, but when I was sent a sample of Badger's new hair oils to try I jumped at the chance because I love all things W.S. Badger Co (and I've professed my love on multiple occasions here on this blog)!  I received a 1 fl. oz sample of their Seabuckthorn Apricot & Pomegranate Antioxidant Hair Oil, which is suitable for all hair types.  It contains 10 ingredients total, nine of which are USDA certified organic:

I've used this a total of four times since I received it.  The first time I put it in before bed and left it in overnight, the other three I put it in an hour before showering.  I didn't notice much of a difference between letting it set for an hour or overnight.  If my hair could talk, it would probably say "I hate you.  Why are you so mean to me?" because I heat style it almost every day (blowdrying and straightening).  I like the idea of using this hair oil because it penetrates deeply to moisturize really well.  I have an oily scalp, though, so I didn't apply it close to my roots.

One thing that I really love about Badger is that they're Leaping Bunny certified as cruelty-free; you can see the Leaping Bunny logo in the photo above.  This means that they've passed the highest standards of cruelty-free certification, which is something that's very important to me.

But back to the review -- like I said, I used this product for a month and I was pleased with the results.  I applied it, let it set, then washed it out using my regular shampoo and conditioner as instructed.  Some nights I let my hair dry, others I used a blowdryer.  The night that I left this in overnight was a night that I let my hair air dry, and when I woke up I noticed that it felt much softer than normal.  I also applied a little bit too much because I wasn't sure how much I needed at first, which caused my hair to be weighed down a bit.  But no matter, because most importantly I could tell that this was a hair oil that worked.

My hair felt much softer than it usually does after I used this hair oil, and I plan on continuing to use it for quite a while.  My sample size was 1 fl. oz, but a full-sized bottle will cost you only $18.99 and is twice the size (2 fl. oz).  I have a lot of hair, so I use two full pumps, but I still think that a 2 fl oz bottle would last you for months.

Bottom Line: Badger's Seabuckthorn Apricot & Pomegranate Antioxidant Hair Oil is yet another Badger product for me to love.  I am a bit biased because they're one of my favorite brands EVER, but I still think that anyone who gave this hair oil a try would love it!
