Review Time - Hungry Hair Oil Treatment
Well BFFs, with a Surinamese/Irish father and an Indian mother, it's no surprise that my hair can be quite demanding. The wrong products easily weight it down, and let's not even begin to talk about frizz and dry ends. When I was living in Holland, bad hair days were the norm. The rainy drizzle and moisture would quickly turn my hair into a big frizz puff. I would step out of the door and 'poof' the damage was done. Here, in sunny California, it's a little easier to manage, but with the constant heat, there are still plenty of challenges.
When Eva NYC contacted me about trying their Hungry Hair Oil Treatment, I was initially a little hesitant, having had several hair disasters in the past. However, I read
up about the oil and decided to give it a try.
Packaging & Ingredients:
Hungry Hair Oil Treatment comes in an orange box with English and French writing on it. Inside the box, hides a brown, glass bottle that for some reason reminded me of a cough syrup bottle. I'm not complaining, I actually like this... Medicine for my hair!!!
The oil has no color and is pretty much translucent. It doesn't contain artificial colors, sulfates or parabens. Yay, for natural hair care!
The main ingredients include Keravis Protein, for increasing flexibility and strength of your hair, and Argan Oil which provides nutrients and vitamins. Before even receiving the oil, I knew it was going to smell amazing due to the Argan Oil. I've used products with Argan Oil before and they all smell fabulous!

Directions & Results:
In addition to using the oil on damp and dry hair, I was excited when I read that it can also shield hair from heat damage during blow drying. Per the instructions, I applied a few drops of the oil to the palm of my hand and rubbed my hands together before running them through my dry hair. When I removed my hands from my hair, the oil was gone and my hands were dry. My hair just soaked up the oil like a sponge. Since I have a lot of hair, I repeated this step several times. I noticed that my ends were starting to look hydrated and bouncy (major plus!) and my hair got a healthy sheen to it. I was sure that the oil would weigh my hair down, especially since my hair tends to get greasy near the roots. However, the next day, my hair was still full of volume and did not appear greasy like I though it would. It felt soft and looked healthy. Oh, and let's not forget the lovely scent of the oil. If it was edible, it would make me gain 5 pounds in a week easily.
I decided to use the oil right after washing my hair. The pictures below show the progress. From left to right:
Left: This is a picture of my hair after washing it. I untangled it and combed through it with a comb. After it air dried a little, I applied some of the hair oil to it and combed it one more time.
Center: This is after blow drying my hair, using the Hungry Hair Oil Treatment as a heat damage shield. As you can see, my hair is 'fluffy'...That's just the first word that comes to mind.
Right: This is my hair after applying some more of the Hungry Hair Oil Treatment. I rubbed some drops in between my hands and used a squeezing motion to apply it to my locks. As you can see, it helps to accentuate the curls, smooths the flyaway strands and eliminates any dryness.
Hungry Hair Oil Treatment comes in a 100 mL bottle, which costs $20. Although this might seem expensive to some, you only use a little of the oil each time, so it will last a long time. If this is outside of your budget, or if you want a small bottle for in your purse, get the 1 oz. bottle which costs $8. You can purchase Hungry Hair Oil right from Eva NYC.

About Eva NYC:
Before trying this oil, I had seen Eva NYC products in my local beauty store. I had never tried them before though. If you're wondering who Eva is.... According to the company's website, Eva is the girl everyone wants to be friends with. She's a little bit of all of us -- the bookworm, the popular girl, the athletic girl, the fashionista, the mom, the daughter, the sister...... The company constantly tests their formulas to ensure they're of the best quality. They provide "premium hair care that's affordable and stylish". Sounds good to me, and from the hair oil, it seem that they do as they say!
Hungry Hair Oil Treatment smells so good, it's very hard not to like it. However, I'm not one to be persuaded by just the scent, the product has to actually do what it says. From the results I got, I feel that this oil works like a charm, especially if your hair tends to be on the dry side. Mostly, I will be using it on my dry hair, since it's quick and easy.
