We’re all for trying new products and jumping on the bandwagon of the latest craze, so when the new Marula Oil range by Paul Mitchell crossed our desk, we were keen to give it a whirl and add it to our beauty routine.
Marla oil is all of the rage right now, and while it’s not here to replace the beloved organ oil treatments in our beauty cupboard, it definitely needs to sit alongside it, at the very least. So what is marula oil?
Harvested in South Africa from the nut inside the marula fruit, marula oil contains antioxidants and essential fatty acids like omegas-6 and -9 which and it’s hydrating, replenishing and sustainable. Marula oil is friendly on the skin and is full of powerful antioxidants, oleic acids and a high concentration of nutrients. As if that’s not enough, it is harvested sustainably by African women;s collectives who are educated on safe practices, provided with traceability training and paid fair trade wages, so it helps create a sustainable economy for women and families in southern and eastern Africa.Marula oil has been introduced into our face and body products for some time, but the new Marula Oil range by Paul Mitchell brings the skincare-inspired ingredients into haircare. Marula Oil is ideal for dull, damaged, thick, coarse and unruly hair and it helps to seal split ends with immediate results. It also works to nourish and hydrate for noticeably healthy, shiny hair.
I’ve been using the Rare Oil Replenishing Shampoo to smooth, hydrate and restore, alongside the Rare Oil Replenishing Conditioner to smooth, soften and nourish. You only need a tiny bit of each and so far, so good.Have you added marula oil to your skincare and haircare routine or are you set to jump on the bandwagon?
