Default Global Goddess Shine Coconut and Amla Oil treatment

Otay, so I saw this stuff in a magazine and am intrigued. I could only find one thread about it here, which I promptly bumped (in product reviews). The stuff is pricey as hell, but I'm thinking about maybe trying it as an adjunct to CK, sort of as a shine enhancer/frizz killer.

Ingredients:

Cocnut oil/sunflower oil/safflower oil/avocado oil/ grape seed oil/shea butter oil/fragrance/henna extract/phyllanthus emblica fruit extract/melia azadiracta leaf extract/meadowfoam seed oil/jojoba seed oil/tocopheral acetate (vitamin E)/ ISOPROPYLPARABEN/ISOBUTYLPARABEN/BUTYLPARABEN

Apparently you can buy it OTC at Dillard's and Nordstrom.

Seems awfully pricy for something with oils you could add to your routine easily enough from the health food store. I wonder what kind of consistency it has and how you could use it in curly hair...

Well, here are the reviews at makeup alley:

They're using it as a DT, as a leave in, as a regular old styling aide to enhance shine and decrease frizz, etc..

I would agree with Jess - awful pricey for a hair oil, especially considering the ingredients. There's nothing bad in there and it is CG, but I think you can do better for the money.

I bought some Dabur Vatika Coconut Hair Oil from here, and it's a great product. I use it for DT's and pre-poo treatments.

The ingredients are somewhat similar to the Global Goddess Oil but include more beneficial herbs for a fraction of the cost.

Ingredients: Henna - colorant, hair conditioner & restorative
Amla - hair nourishment, delays graying & hair fall
Harad - protects from UV rays, delays graying
Bahera - maintains hair color
Neem - anti-microbial, fights dandruff & hair fall.
Brahmi - hair vitalizer.
Kapur Kachari - antiseptic.
Lemon Oil - astringent, fights dandruff.
Coconut Oil - promotes hair growth & nourishment.
Cow's Milk - natural nourishment.

I agree. What's up with adding parabens to oil? Misspam, I love the vatika oil, too. And the Ramtirth Brahmi Oil even better. Ruchita Ayurveda has some great oils and powders at excellent prices (and a 15% discount for that I actually emailed for the LHC-enter LHC15, I think it was...)

Well thank you ladies!! Glad to know there is an equivalent product out there for much lower cost. I may have to get some of that Vatika stuff.
