ORS Hair & Scalp Wellness Oils - Coconut Oil

Sunday, 8 November 2015

I've always relied heavily on natural oils for injecting life into my thirsty strands and the range of Hair & Scalp Wellness Oils by ORS have been created to target a variety of tress woes. There's 10 different oils in the range - Tea Tree, Castor Oil, Jojoba Oil, Argan Oil, Black Seed Oil, Shea Butter Oil, Saw Palmetto Oil, Indian Amla Oil, Virgin Olive Oil and Coconut Oil.


I was sent Coconut Oil (£4.99)* to try and as much as I love using pure Virgin Coconut Oil straight out of a jar I've been relying on the ORS Coconut Oil most recently as it's so convenient. The applicator tip means I can squeeze a little onto my fingers and apply or just dab it straight onto my scalp.

The product itself is actually a blend of natural oils, including Coconut (of course), Sweet Almond, Corn and Hibiscus. It also has Neem and Rosemary Leaf extract included. Together these ingredients are supposed to soothe breaking, dull hair, providing strength and shine.

You can use this product in a few different ways but my favourite is as a pre shampoo treatment. I warm the oil a little before applying, leave on for 10 minutes and then shampoo (see here). No matter how harsh the shampoo I use is my hair always feels so soft and moisturised I almost don't need to deep condition. If your hair is dry definitely give a hot oil treatment a try! This product can also be used as a conditioner, oil rinse and to add a little shine when hair is looking a little lacklustre.


As this is fairly cheap I'd definitely buy this and I'm interested to try a few of the other oils in this range. Currently I've only seen this available in selected Boots stores or online here.

  3. I love oils and use a range of them in my hair. My favorite is argan oil as it is light but also gives a shimmer to the hair.
    However, I think this is over priced for a product that only partly contains coconut oil. It cost 4.99 for 90 ml You can buy organic coconut oil at Tesco for the same price, 4.99 but get 2.85 ml and it is all coconut oil. This is a blend of oils. It also contains some other substance like benzyl benzoate and alkohol. Some of the oils in this mix is corn oil which is one of the cheapest oils you can buy and maybe not an oil typical for hair use.
    As much as I see the benefit for using a mix of oils, i think it is best to buy pure organic oils and mix them myself when needed and when not needed use them separate. Much cheaper and much more pure product.

    1. I love natural oils too and agree with you that its cheaper and more beneficial in terms of the ingredients. I still like using products like this though as I don't personally feel the need to always use pure ingredients. Often I don't want to buy lots of different types of oils to mix together and that's when products like this come in handy x

    2. Hi here from the brand. We just thought we'd make a note on composition - the main oils used are Sweet Almond and coconut - with corn oil included as a minor a great high molecular oil for weighting, but totally outweighed by coconut and sweet almond in the composition. The success of these oils to date has been because of the high proportion of good quality oils plus other 'good stuff' purposely included to nourish and cleanse the scalp such as Neem and Rosemary extract which would not be included with a singular oil product. the ingredient composition of this particular oil can be found here for others interested also: Prunus amygdalus dulcis (sweet Almond) oil, Cocos nucifera (Coconut) oil, Zea mays (Corn) oil, Parfum, Hibiscus sabdariffa (Hibiscus) oil, Melia azadirachta (Neem) leaf extract, Rosmarinus officinalis (Rosemary) leaf extract, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), BHT, Benzyl Alcohol, Benzyl benzoate, Coumarin.

      We look forward to receiving further feedback as we are always listening to consumers and reading reviews such as these so thank you all.

  4. I couldn't live without oils! They've been part of my hair care regimen for as long as I've been caring for my hair, and ever since my dedication to my HHJ I've found so many great oils that I love. I use them at every stage. From pre-poo, deep condition, oil rinse, seal and protect. Just great!
