Live Clean Exotic Silk

Organic Beauty BloggerWhen it comes to natural hair care products, I’m constantly looking for something new and better. Something that would make my hair look shinier, healthier, and more beautiful. If you’d ask me, I could name my skin care holy grail products in a blink, but for hair care, the same answer is pretty blank. Yes, I prefer some brands over others and, yes, there are many products that I keep repurchasing, but I am not attached to any of them (except maybe John Masters).

I’ve wanted to try this Live Clean Exotic Silk Keratin Oil Treatment for ages, so when it went on sale, I didn’t hesitate. The fact that it comes in a travel-friendly 100ml bottle with a pump also seemed like a good investment for future travels. Live Clean is a Canadian brand, and I hear it’s pretty popular in Canada. The Keratin Oil Treatment retails for CA$11, in Europe it cost me 6.99 on sale (8.99 RRP).

I was interested in this treatment because of its promises to visibly smooth, defrizz, and lock in moisture by making the hair more healthy and manageable, with the help of oils such as organic macadamia oil, buriti oil, and the plant keratin blend.

See the ingredients:

Diheptyl Succinate, Capryloyl Glycerin / Sebacic Acid Copolymer, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Triticum Vulgare (Wheat) Germ Oil, Glycine Soya (Soybean) Oil, Macadamia Integrifolia Seed Oil*, Mauritia Flexuosa (Buriti) Fruit Oil, Mel (Honey/Miel)*, Parfum (Fragrance). *Certified organic.

For the sake of this review, I should explain the current state of my hair. Though my hairdresser says I have a lot of hair, it certainly doesn’t look that way. It looks thin with a lack of volume at the roots and dry/frizzy at the ends. Not the most easily manageable combination, I know. So, because of this frizzy state of my hair, I was buying this treatment hoping it would be a perfect leave-in. However, after giving it a fair amount of tries, I was left very disappointed. And I mean, not just “meh, this product doesn’t do anything for my hair” disappointed, but “I’m not going to use it ever again” disappointed. Even the tiniest imaginable amount of this treatment left the hair looking greasy, so I started thinking my hair wasn’t so dry after all. I did try it again as a pre-wash. I would apply the oil to my ends (nowhere near my roots, thank you very much), leave it for 10-15 minutes, and wash the hair as usual. The results were much better – the frizz was reduced, and the hair was more manageable and softer – however, not to the point that I would continue using it.

So overall, if you can lay your hands on this Live Clean Exotic Keratin Treatment, I would recommend it to anyone who has extremely dry hair and wants to get it under control.

Have you tried this Live Clean hair serum? What’s your holy grail hair serum?

Interesting….I am not so much into leave-in products as I often get disappointed in a very similar way than you had :-((. x

I like creamy leave-ins, I find them less intense, but it is so tricky to find a leave-in serum, which would actually work, but wouldn’t be too greasy 🙂

I think intense hair masks would be more beneficial for you than serums 🙂

thanks for your thoughts 🙂 I use hair oils and hair masks as it is. My favorite is manuka honey + coconut oil. Do you have any store bought or DIY faves?

Sorry for getting back to you only now. I love coconut oil as a hair mask too! As for store-bought, my favorites are John Masters Organics detanglers (especially, bare). I use them as hair masks, leave-ins, etc.

My hair isn’t dry at all and actually get oily quite fast, so I don’t think this is my serum.

In that case, it would be too oily for you 🙂

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
