Head to Toe

As you know by now, I love to try out new products, I guess is it just my personal quest to find the ultimate product. So I was thrilled to try the CoCasta Shikakai Herbal Hair Oil by Hairveda. This is an oil that is supposed to make your hair stronger, softer and shinier, so I was willing to give it a try. This product can also be used as a body oil. I have to tell you when I pulled out that oily goodness I was sold. I have been mainly using it as a body oil. I am literally smoothed out all day (except for my hands which I wash 100 times a day lol) My hands are smooth but I am always reapplying lotion and the cocasta is too big to lug around in my purse but my legs are shiny all day long.
The scent is like that of fresh cherry Now and Later candies...yummm. The scent is certainly not long lasting so I enjoy it while it lasts. I did put it on my hair and here are the results (before is to the left and after is on the right).

As you can see it is shinier after so that is good, but what oil wouldn't make it shinier? I must say that I do like that it is not heavy on my hair and you only need a little. Hours later your hair will still be shining, not as much as when you first applied it but the shine will still be there- at least for me. If you go to the website to make a purchase, you may not be able to because they often close down shop to fill the hundreds of orders that come in. Yes, this is a natural company making homemade products and I love it!!!!
The ingredients include "Ingredients: Ricinus Communis Seed Oil, Prunus Amygdalus Dulsis, Acacia Concinna Oil, Bacopa Monniera Oil, Emblica Officianalis Fruit Oil, Azadirachta Indica Seed Oil, Fragrance."
Anyway I like this product and I will get it again but I will probably use it more for my body. For $11.00 you can get the 8oz bottle but $20.00 will get you the 16 oz.
Have you tried anything from
