Old Wives Tail is a unique company, a special company, who is dedicated to cruelty free hair care with a focus on putting an end to animal testing with the eradication of animal testing in the beauty industry described as the companies’ ‘main lifetime goal’. What’s more, 10% of all profits go to charities that save animals from being tested upon.
The products are all made in small batches, designed for particular hair concerns based on the owner’s grandmothers’ oil blends which she would use growing up in Portugal with thick, dark locks. Oils and masks are available for everything from hair loss to promoting growth to treating and nourishing tired, dry hair.
Ingredients are simply moisturising oil blends with the added powers of essential oils such as cinnamon, lemon and peppermint all formulated to make the perfect, luxurious treat for the hair. All are made with certified organic ingredients only and are paraben free, sulfate free, gluten free, vegan & vegetarian with absolutely no animal testing.
I used the Almond & Cinnamon Oil Organic Hair Mask as recommended for deep moisturisation. My hair was so dry, brittle and lifeless. After one use, on dry hair, left on overnight, my hair felt much better and had some shine back, but it was really after the second use on damp hair, left on for just over an hour that made real impact.
My hair was like I’ve never seen it since lightening my hair. It was soft to touch, manageable, brushable, shiny and it felt strong.
The scent of cinnamon leaf is powerful at first, but the mellow scent that remains once the product has been washed off is woody and aromatic and beautiful. I was complimented on the scent of my hair various times throughout the day! It also, took away the brassiness from my hair and you can see from these pictures how the colour has dramatically brightened after each use.
