Review: British M – Organics Annatto Hair Oil

Good morning Queens,

Hair oil? What? Isn’t that counterintuitive? Don’t I want to get rid of oily hair? I can totally understand this thought process and as someone who deals with oily skin 24/7, I was skeptical. However, a few years ago I decided to give it a try.

Before I bought anything I wanted to research what the benefits are and if it was worth purchasing. Some points that I have found and that have worked for me are:

  • It can help detangle wild and unruly hair.
  • It’s a good heat protectant.
  • Revive dry hair.
  • Bring some shine on those locks.
  • Help ease frizzy frizz.
  • Can be a sealant to help damaged ends.

It’s recommended to apply it once a week but, normally I do after every shower. It’s only because of how dry my hair has become from various dye jobs over the years. When I apply the oil I start in the middle of my hair and move downwards making sure to target my ends. I don’t recommend applying it to your scalp as it will cause a grease overload and… Girl, that ain’t cute. Trust me, I’ve been there!

Recently, Soko Glam started advertising British M’s Organics Annatto Hair Oil and instantly I was intrigued. I’ve never heard of British M before and I actually thought it might be a British company, for obvious reasons. But, it turns out that it’s a Korean company and their brand name is an acronym – Brilliant Respectable Impressive Thoughtful Intelligent Stylish Honest / Men.

For Black Friday I was able to get my hands on it and here are my thoughts.

Pros:

  • Large glass bottle.
  • Luxurious feel.
  • Packaging is smart and cute.
  • You don’t have to use too much oil. 1.5 to 2 pumps is all I need for my long hair.
  • It’s lightweight and doesn’t weigh my hair down.
  • It makes my hair feel soft.
  • It has a nice light smell and I don’t think it is too overpowering.

Cons:

  • Glass bottle — easy to break and slightly heavy.
  • Price is $67, quite pricey for hair oil.
  • It would be a pain to travel with.

Repurchase/Final Thoughts?

Yes, I would 100% repurchase it, but I would be more likely to buy during a sale. The price is just a wee too much for me to drop regularly. However, with the amount in the bottle, I think it’s going to last me for a while. Always a win!

If you don’t want to commit to $67, I would recommend as a starter the OGX Renewing Argan Oil of Morocco Penetrating Oil ($7.99 Ulta). It’s actually one of my favorites and what got me started.

Have you guys tried it? What are your thoughts? Do you have a favorite hair oil?

Lots of Love,

MK x
