When Old Wives Tail, an online organic hair care shoppe, contacted me about reviewing one of their products, I happily accepted. The owner of Old Wives Tail, Lily, is down to earth and cares about the health of her customer’s hair. The recipes behind Old Wives Tail’s hair products are inspired by Lily’s experiences growing up with her grandma in Portugal who taught her hair care remedies. Old Wives Tail is also against animal testing & 10% of their profits go to charities that protect animals!
SOS Organic Anti-Hair Loss Oil Treatment
The SOS Organic Anti-Hair Loss Oil Treatment is versatile and that’s why I love it! Over the course of a month I was able to incorporate it into my regimen as a pre-poo, scalp massage oil, and an overnight deep conditioner. You can also use it as a hot oil treatment, mix it with your castor oil for an extra boost, or add it to your rinse out conditioner.

Product Claim: A healthy scalp is vital for healthy hair growth. If you suffer from a dry, itchy scalp just a few drops of SOS will soothe, moisturize and soften your scalp to prevent hair loss.
This 100% organic oil contains natural anti-bacterial agents that soothe and heal scalp infections and remove dead skin cells. SOS has stimulating properties that increase circulation and encourage healthy hair growth.
Fragrance: An energizing and restorative smell. It has a bright and minty peppermint fragrance with a touch of spicy clove.
Consistency/Color: Olive oil yellow, translucent. A very light-weight oil that spreads easily. Light enough to not cause build-up, but heavy enough to penetrate hair strands.
Overall Results: The SOS Organic Anti-Hair Loss Oil Treatment by Old Wives Tail made my natural, kinky hair very soft and malleable. I used it as a pre-poo and put a conditioning cap on for 2-3 hours. Afterwards, my hair was not only soft but strong. I like that this treatment doesn’t make my hair overly soft which can cause it to snap off from an in-balance of moisture and protein.
At night, I used the oil to massage my scalp. The peppermint oil in the treatment stimulated my scalp and did not clog my pores. This oil is light-weight enough for those with fine hair but penetrates enough for those with thick hair.
I highly recommend leaving it in overnight with a conditioning cap, especially if you have thick hair. I also used it as an overnight deep conditioner. My hair was notably softer, stronger, and had more volume during my washing routine. Overall, I recommend this product!
I give this product 5 sunstars out of 5!
Shipping & Handling/Customer Service: Products ship at no cost from England! If you live in the United States, like I do, keep this in mind when ordering and give a little extra time for product to get to you.
