Skala Professional Oleo de Coco Review

P_20141216_182648_BF

My tub of Skala Professional Oleo de Coco, ordered I think about a week ago.

I know I said I’d review M.Chue Lipbalm and Lip color first but I thought I’d review Skala Hair Treatment before those because my hair looks nice today thanks to Skala lol.

I discovered Skala via instagram after following DIY Beautyshop. I kept seeing raves from their customers for a while and decided that I want to test the product for myself. Like I’ve stated before, if a product gets a lot of good reviews, especially when there’s picture-proof, I get curious and usually end up getting that product (granted that it’s in my interest of course.)

I’m a big fan of great hair (who isn’t?)–but what i’m not a fan of is shelling out money every week or month to get salon treatment, and according to the claims of happy customers, with Skala, you don’t have to. Skala will give you salon-treated looking hair. Alrighty then. I ordered after a few months of reading great reviews on DIYbeauty shop and finally tested it out for myself.

I also put it on one of the greatest road-test you can put it on, which was restoring bleached hair.

I got the Oleo de Coco variant (they have several; Ceramides, Keratina..etc) because from what the other customers say, after using it their hair looked like they had rebonded hair (and were even asked by other people if they got their hair rebonded.)

Anyway, after I bleached my hair, I used Skala Oleo de Coco on my hair for two consecutive days and again after two days (I went somewhere and couldn’t bring the GIGANTIC TUB with me. It’s huge man! I didn’t expect it when I ordered the product.)

I didn’t see any effect expect for softness for two days but after the third use, whoa. Hello softness and my frizz from bleaching calmed down considerably. Needless to say I was satisfied with the result. It doesn’t look like my hair was rebonded BUT it does look like I got one of those expensive Brazilian hair treatments offered at most salons these days — which is good enough considering how brutal bleaching can be on the hair. Now I don’t have to wait months for my hair to rebound from bleaching 😀

Here are the not so greatly taken photos (lol :() of Skala-treated hair

Bleached 3 days ago, and after 3 washes, this is the result. Sorry I don’t have pre-Skala pictures of my hair.

Looks decently flat/frizz-free for bleached hair right?

My hair looks darker in these photos thanks to my iffy camera lol. Also I didn’t comb my hair…because I really generally don’t use combs, just fingers.

Pros:
-Uhhhmmm soft and smooth hair duh! 😀
-better hair in a matter of days (which, hopefully will get all the better after a week, a month? :D)

-Huge ass tub means great hair for up to maybe a month (according to others, their tub lasted them 2 months with everyday use.) The tub is 1000 grams in weight.
Cons:
-Not available at your local supermarket. So far DIY Beautyshop is the only place that I know sells them. I think it’s originally from Brazil.

-You have to leave the product on for 3 mins before rinsing–WHICH isn’t too bad considering there are 5 or even 30 minute treatments so Skala’s 3 min-rule is actually not that bad (only if you don’t have the luxury of 3 mins which understandably some people don’t have especially when running late in the morning.)

Rating:

4/5

Would I purchase again?

Yes. I’m sill waiting to see what its effects are on my hair after like a month or so though 🙂
