Montibello's Gold Oil Essence - First Impressions

Gold Oil Essence - Liquid Gold

When I was first asked to try Montibello's Gold Oil Essence I was naturally very excited, because hey, who wouldn't be!? I'm a big fan of hair oils and let's be honest, how did anyone ever survive without them? Ever since the hair oil explosion a couple of years ago with Macadamia and Argan Oil bursting onto the scene like Lady Gaga and Nicky Minaj in their hotpants; we all had plenty of chance to try at least a couple, so as you can imagine I was over the moon when the opportunity presented itself. (If you don't know what I'm talking about then please keep reading... it's for your own good)  ;)

Let me tell you that Montibello Gold Oil Essence is one of the big boys. First, just like the amber cane in Jurassic park, it grabs your attention like a sleeping giant in golden packaging. A very luxurious experience from start to finish. All the benefits of Amber oil and Argan oil combined into one beautifully presented neat little package!

You know you're in for a treat as soon as you open the lid, it smells so nice that I wanted to pour it all over me (luckily there's a nozzle) ;) That'll be the Amber Oil then.

Once I'd composed myself enough to wash and condition my hair (it works best when applied to damp hair) I rubbed the Gold oil essence into my hair concentrating on the mid lengths and ends. I quite like the fact that it absorbed instantly and my hair felt light and clean. Then much like any other oil or leave in treatment I combed it through and continued with my haircare routine. 

Over the years, like most of you, I'm sure, I quickly found out that you can also use hair oils as makeshift de-tanglers and once again Montibello's Gold Oil didn't disappoint, it helped me tame my mane in a calm controlled manner. Gold Oil Essence made my hair soft, shiny and smooth and you know what, I wasn't confronted with the post hairdryer frizz that I have grown accustomed to! Bonus!  

Montibello Gold Oil Essence 30mlLike me, some of you may get a little giddy (just a little) so for best effects try not to get over excited and use too much, especially if you have fine hair. It's a fairly viscous oil so go easy to start with and add more in depending on the length and volume of your hair. 

Overall you can't go far wrong with a 30ml sample, it's great. One thing's definitely for sure, Montibello's Gold Oil will be a great addition to anyones travel plans... be prepared for that unexpected visit from the dreaded frizz monster!

Happy travels to you all x
