VO5 Hot Oil Moisture Soak Elixir Review

It's no secret that I'm not naturally blonde- shock/horror. I've been dyeing my full head blonde for four years now and I've been lucky enough to not have had any problems with its condition and its always looked really healthy, until recently. Last year I decided to grow my hair out so I stopped getting it cut on a monthly basis and instead just got my roots done when I went to the hairdressers. It's grown so much in that time, it went from touching my shoulders to chest level! But because it had gotten longer and I'd stopped cutting it as frequently as I used to it started to get quite dry and it did look noticeably different. After browsing through a few blogs I noticed that so many of you were raving about the VO5 Hot Oil Moisture Soak Elixir so I ran down to Boots and opted for this in shower treatment version.

There's no fuss whatsoever involved with the Hot Oil. You simply apply it in the shower before you wash your hair and leave it on for up to a minute. There's no pre-heating required, which I didn't expect seeing as it's a 'Hot' Oil treatment. The bottle has white arrows down the side to indicate how much you should apply which is such a clever idea, I didn't realise what they were at first (I'm brilliant that way). I was only going to review this once I'd used to whole tube, but so far I've only used it three times (out of a possible five) and already my hair looks and feels so much better. It used to feel horrible and dry at the back but now it feels so smooth I can't believe it's changed so much in only three applications! The only word of warning when it comes to this is don't exceed the one minute instructed. The last time I used it I left it on for about two minutes and even though I washed it all out, my hair was a little greasy on one side when I dried it. If your hair is dry and damaged or you just want a little shine I seriously recommend that you try this! It's cheap as chips and does the job! You can't ask for more.

I bought my VO5 Hot Oil Moisture Soak Elixir from Boots for £4.29.

I'm always on the look out for products to keep my hair looking healthy, what products do you use?


  1. I've been using macadamia oil every now and then, which always leaves my hair soft and shiny. But i'm coming to the end of the bottle so i'll have to keep my eye out for your review of it!

    please take a look,

  2. I love hair oils so I'll definitely try this out. I love that there are indicators on the side as well, it's so easy to over do it with oils x

  3. I'll be trying this out ASAP, been looking at so many oil products recently and get so overwhelmed by them all i end up going and getting makeup or something instead haha x

  18. Hey Leigh-Anne =)

    I use coconut oil on my hair, it works so well! It's about £10 for a big tub but it lasts forever so it's really worth it. On a night where my hair needs washing I rub it through all my hair and a tad into my scalp and then scrape my hair back and either leave it for an hour or two or sleep on it (with a towel on the pillow!). Then I wash it out (always apply load of shampoo first to your hair before any water so the water doesn't resist the oil) and my hair is lovely and silky soft =) it helps it grow and also can be used as a moisturiser, multi-use! =) See you in class in a couple of weeks! xxx
