Palmer's Coconut Oil Formula Strong Roots Spray-Review, Photos



Company/Brand Claim: Moisturizes hair and scalp. Freshens hair. Soothes tightness and itch.

For Hair Type: All

Packaging: Handy plastic bottle with spray pump.

Product Coverage: -

Formulation: Slightly oily 

Texture and Feel: Non sticky and watery.

Color: Transparent   
       
Fragrance: Smells just like coconut oil with a slight hint of mint. Not everyone might like it. 

Application: Just spray onto the scalp and massage with hands.

Result: It is the first time in many years that I've willingly used coconut oil for my hair. Although well aware of its benefits, I still stopped using it because of the weird sticky feeling. After I used the Palmer's strong roots spray for the first time, the first thing I noticed is the fragrance and a mild cool feeling on my scalp, just like it happens with products that contain menthol does. I divided my hair into strands and sprayed a few times and massaged. Although the label says it can be used after the shower for styling, but I prefer it as an alternate to coconut oil. I leave it on for 3-4 hours and wash the hair. It doesn't irritate the skin, doesn't drip and does not stain the pillow (really happy about that). It is meant to "nourish hair" and not make them long or thick and that's what it does. The pumped bottle is very convenient and ready to carry for travel. My husband gave it a try and he said it made his hair nice and soft. This product has a become a staple for my hair care. 

Ingredients:



Besides coconut oil, it also contains vitamin E for softness and eucalyptus oil for overall hair strength and itch control. So those with dandruff can definitely use it.

Staying Power: 2-3 hours 

Times Tested: 3-4 times
 
Cons: None

Anything Else: -

Palmer's Coconut Oil Formula Strong Roots Spray comes in a 150 ml spray bottle. It is also available in olive oil and coco butter formulations. 

Rating: 4.5/5




Take it:

You're looking for alternate to coconut oil
You prefer non sticky texture
You suffer from an itchy scalp
You have dry hair

Leave it:

You prefer pure coconut oil
You find the fragrance disturbing

Price: Rs. 550/-  
Available at: 
Pakistan: Naheeds, Chase-up and other leading super stores. Online at Just4Girls and Beauty Arena.
UAE: Safeer Mall.
Website: Palmer's USA

Conclusion: I kind of liked the idea of oil in a spray bottle so out of curiosity I placed an order and was really happy to see that it is not pure coconut oil but a mix of several ingredients that nurture the hair.  Recommended? Yes!

Fashion Haul and experience with Rea$onablez



While I was in Pakistan, I came across a new Facebook page named Rea$onablez where I spotted these beautiful Kolapuri sandals. Although I'm not a fan of the style, these somehow seemed very different and trendy and I placed an order. I also ordered a beaded turquoise bracelet with charms, as it seemed equally tempting.

I received the parcel after two days of order placement through tcs. I was happy to see my stuff was safe and sound and I quickly tried on the sandals first. They're fit for casual wear and have velcro lock at the back for a better grip. I've never seen such Kolapuri's before, so this new look was impressive. Here's how they look. 






I got the Kolapuri's for Rs. 1200/- and the turquoise bracelet for Rs. 1700/-. If you'd like to have a look then checkout Rea$onablez. Overall I had a nice experience shopping with these guys. Hope you liked the haul.  Enjoy!
