Jo Hansford ILLUMINOIL

I was invited to Jo Hansford's new salon opening in London this week which sounded amazing but sadly I couldn't make it! Hopefully when I'm next in London I will be able to visit the new salon but I was kindly sent a bottle of Jo's new ILLUMINOIL to try out.


Jo Hansford is hailed by American Vogue as "the best tinter on the planet" and described by Marie Claire as "The first Lady of Colour", she is simply an icon in the field of hair colouring and counts Nigella Lawson, Sienna Miller, and Elizabeth Hurley as loyal clients.


ILLUMINOIL is a blend of exquisite ingredients to add shine, heal and protect hair and this 'liquid gold' is 'one of the most luxurious hair care products ever formulated' - wow that's saying something! The ILLUMINOIL was created as a miracle essence for all hair types, harnessing the healing power of some of the world's  most exotic and precious oils. Pomegranate, Argan, Karanja and Jojoba oils combine in this unique lightweight formulation to hydrate and nourish your hair, leaving it glossy, shiny and radiant. 


The packaging is very luxurious, in a glass and gold pump action bottle and first impressions are great - the oil, which is more like a serum, smells amazing - very fresh, clean and citrus-y and it is extremely lightweight and non-greasy. I have tried many different hair oils out over recent months and this has got to be the nicest scented one I have found to date! This is a multi-purpose product, you can use as a finishing product on dry hair after styling to smooth cuticles and tame flyaways leaving your hair soft, sleek and shiny. You can apply a little through mid-lengths and ends of towel dried hair to prevent frizz and aid blow drying, intensively nourishing the hair leaving a smooth silky finish. It can be used as an intensive treatment after shampooing leave on for 10 minutes before rinsing and conditioning as normal, it can repair, restructure and nourish dry, damaged or over processed hair. It can also be used as an overnight scalp treatment if your scalp is dry, irritated or flaky to soothe.


Jo Hansford ILLUMINOIL is priced at £29 and is available from Harvey Nichols and johansford.com
