As you can see, a little goes a long way!
I have had this bottle for months! Well, I am also dreading the day, its gone!

On my last trip over the Pond! I found a treasure, JO HANSFORD LONDON ILLUMINOIL™. I had read about it prior to my trip and put it on my list of "Beauty Must Haves" to purchase while I was there. Luckily for me, the Jo Hansford Salon was only a hop, skip and a jump away from where I was and I picked it up right inside the Salon. Right by the U.S. Embassy. Well being American but half British. I felt it was meant to be!!

Oh how I love it! It has now replaced the other hair oils that I had been previously using! It leaves my hair feeling soft, shiny, and smooth! Never Greasy! Exactly how I want it to feel!

Here's the skinny on it:

ILLUMINOIL™is a versatile miracle essence for all hair types.

ILLUMINOIL™ is a unique blend of rare ingredients that combine to form an exquisite oil that is one of the most luxurious and sumptuous haircare products ever formulated, 'I created ILLUMINOIL™ miracle essence for all hair types, harnessing the healing power of the world's most exotic and precious oils. Pomegranate, Argan, Karanja, Jojoba and Almond oils combine in this unique formulation to hydrate and nourish your hair, leaving it glossy and radiant'. Jo Hansford MBE


As a finishing product:
Use sparingly on dry hair to smooth the cuticles, leaving your hair soft, sleek, and shiny.

When my hair gets a bit dry, I will take a tiny amount (size of a pea) and run it through my ends and use the remainder on my hands to run through my cuticles.

Before blow drying:
Use sparingly through mid-lengths and ends to prevent frizz and aid blow drying.

This is when I use it most, I take about a pump or two at the very most and run it through my mid-lengths and than massage the bare minimum of what is left on my hands into my scalp and through the top part of my hair.

As a intensive treatment:
After shampooing, towel dry hair and apply Illuminoil to mid-lengths and ends to repair, restructure and nourish. Leave on for up to 10 minutes, rinse and condition.

I have used this in the shower or the bathtub when I am doing a hair masque and I will add a pump of this to my ends.

As an overnight scalp treatment:
To soothe and treat dry, irritated flaky scalps, gently massage Illuminoil on to scalp, combing through to distribute evenly. Leave overnight, then shampoo and condition as normal.

I have done this after coloring my hair. I don't wash my hair for at least two to three days after coloring my hair to really let it set in. So at times, that can dry out my scalp. If that should happen, I will apply this on my scalp the night before I plan on washing my hair to help any dryness.

Final Thoughts:
I love this product so much. I just wish that it was available in the U.S. If you are in London or are planning a trip there. I would definitely contact the salon to have them save you a bottle or to see where else it is stocked.
