Hot Six Oil Review

African Royale Hot Six Oil (Six oils in one)

 Ingredients: Olive Oil, Canola Oil, Wheat Germ Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Safflower Oil, Castor Oil, Sesame Oil, Vitamins E, A, & D, Cyclomethicone, Sheep Sorrell, Yarrow, Slippery Elm Bark, Sage, Henna, Comfrey, Burdock Root, Ginseng, Goldenseal, Cherry Bark, Black Walnut, Chamomile, Alfalfa, Hyssop, Wheat Germ and Fragrance.

Claims: All Natural, goes in hair, skin, scalp and nail cuticles easily and without a heavy oil buildup. 

Uses: Can be used as a hot oil treatment and a nail, body or hair oil.

I think this product lives up to the hype, it smells good and the ingredient list is very attractive. I have never used many of the ingredients on their own so it's good to see then all in one bottle.

I was a little concerned with the presence of Cyclomethicone because it didn't sound natural, so I looked it up and found out a lot. 

conditioning agent, solvent, humectant, carrying agent and viscosity controlling agent...When applied to the skin and hair, it gives a silky & slippery feeling to the touch and acts a mild water repellent by forming a protective barrier on the skin. It can also fill in fine lines/wrinkles, giving the face a temporary “plump” look...It’s particularly useful as a hair conditioner because it provides a silky feel with out weighing the hair down with greasy residue. 


While silicones such as cyclomethicone do not appear to have adverse effects on the human body, there are many concerns regarding the harmful effects it may have on the environment...It’s also worth mentioning that silicones may trap sebum, dirt, and bacteria in a layer on top of skin, thus potentially provoking allergic flareups and breakouts.

Considering the aforementioned factors, I think this product will be a staple in my product filled stash. I genuinely like it, it smells great and I like how my hair feels. I will keep buying my oils separately though, because I like having options and alternating products.
How do you like African Royale Hot Six Oil (Six oils in one)?

I always liked this oil and still do. I have a new blog post up about me using the oils separately, though. I'm trying to get the natural oils rather than a premixed potion (not that its bad). I'm just more into using them separately for right now, thanks for reading!
