Inlight Hair Elixir | Review

Press Sample (Affiliated Links)

You may remember that I reviewed, and absolutely fell in love with, Inlight's Supreme Eye Serum (Reviewed HERE) and Inlight's Face Oil (Reviewed HERE) last year, and I am equally thrilled by their new Hair Elixir.

Inlight is a UK-based skincare company that has a mission to create the highest quality organic skincare products, made from ethically sourced ingredients, and their socially and environmentally responsible sustainability practices helped them become the first UK skincare company to achieve Cosmos accreditation.

Their new Hair Elixir is a very high quality hair oil that can be used as a pre-shampoo conditioning treatment, or as a leave-in, and I prefer to use it as a leave-in to tame frizz, nourish and hydrate my hair and scalp, and to give hair a lustrous shine. Furthermore, it is 100% organic, cruelty-free and made from very high quality natural ingredients. It boasts serious efficacy, is a treat to use and has a pleasant earthy aroma that isn't cloying or overpowering.

I should note that the spray bottle has a fine enough mist that effectively covers the hair with minimal waste, but you can also spray it into your hands, warm it between your palms and work it though your hair.

According to Inlight,

A multi-purpose blend of restorative and nourishing oils to actively fortify and regenerate all hair types, delivering intense hydration whilst improving elasticity. With refreshing notes of lavender and lemon zest.

Strength and shine are visibly restored thanks to powerful nourishers such as Argan, Avocado, Jojoba and Rosa rubiginosa oils, and health giving botanical extracts of Rosemary, Nettle, Horsetail and Burdock. Our in-house extracts, produced through a slow method of infusion, help to keep the vitality of every ingredient intact.

  1. I love hair oils! The natural ingredients and the mission of the company make this one a winner!

    1. I do too, and this is a really lovely one. The mission of the company and the natural ingredients definitely make this one worthy contender!

  2. I definitely need to try this. Sounds perfect for my hair type!

    1. It is a lovely and nourishing hair oil, and it is very effective on my naturally curly (dry-leaning) hair. I think that you would really like it.

  3. Always love a good hair oil. I have natural waves and sometimes frizz drives me crazy

    1. Me too. This is good for all types of hair, and since it can be used as a leave-in or a rinse out it will have wider appeal for people who don't use leave-in hair oils. I find it intensely moisturizing and nourishing, and it is definitely wonderful for fighting frizz!

  4. No curly hair here but with the changing season I can see a lot more dryness and flyaways already. This sounds like a great product.

    1. It would work wonders on your hair as well– it is great for all types of hair, but it would be a treat for your hair during a cold Michigan fall and winter. I am very impressed by it.

  5. I love the abundance of nourishing botanical extracts, I bet your hair looks amazing after using this elixir!

    1. Me too, and it is really such a healthy treat for the hair! Definitely worth the splurge!
