Wella Professionals Oil Reflections Smoothening Treatment
I will review Wella Professionals Oil Reflections Smoothening Treatment in this post. If you’ve read my blogger’s event post on Wella, this was the product which we were given as our goodies to try out. Since then, I have used it a lots of times, especially when my hair ends get dry and knotty. This product is named as oil reflections that means it adds on a glossy shine to the hair and is a smoothening treatment that makes it work like the hair serums. It does both the tasks. By the way, Let me ask you do you use hair serums every time you wash your hair or go out or just when you need some extra shine and smoothening? I use them when I need the shine or to get rid of the tangles really quick without too much hair breakage.
Price: Wella Professionals Oil Reflections Smoothening Treatment is for 850 rupees in India and can be bought from Wella Professional salons and Online Here.
Brand says “Wella smoothening treatment is multi-sensorial oil enriched with macadamia seed oil, avocado oil and vitamin E, known as a natural anti-oxidant, instantly reveals the beautiful, natural reflections of hair color with a very lightweight technology that makes hair feel incredibly light and supple. High, glossy reflections: specifically designed to enhance the shine of Wella Professionals Colour, making it up to 86% more reflective. Wella Professionals Oil Reflections can be used in a number of different ways like for :

Styling — Apply a few drops of oil to wet hair before you dry for additional protection.
Finishing — Apply after styling to give hair extra shine, and to intensify colour reflection.”
Views of Wella Oil Reflections Oil smoothening treatment
It smells like sweet fruits mixed with some vanilla which is very refreshing and soothing. This is actually a high point of this oil reflections serum. After the application it leaves a mild and subtle fragrance. It has a consistency as that of the regular hair serums. But on application comes out to be very light weight.
How to use this product:
Take 1-2 pumps of this oil in the palms of the hands and distribute the oil reflection smoothening treatment throughout the hair below the ears and the hair ends. It can be applied on the damp hair to help smoothing out the knots and tangles whereas for the dry hair, it can be used to add a glossy shine on the hair. This is a leave in product hence should not be washed off.
This smoothening treatment does help to make my brush just glide through my hair which means lesser hair breakage. It does add a subtle shine but I have noticed that the shine doesn’t last for too long. It vanishes after half an hour though the fragrance remains for an hour. I mostly use this when my hair is in semi dried state.
It works well for my normal hair but for very dry hair this may not perform optimally but still can give you some relief from the dryness and brushing the knots through. It doesn’t weigh down the hair even if you have applied or used this liberally on the hair. AS it doesn’t make hair sticky, it is good for the oily hair, it will not make them oilier, would just tame the ends a bit. The bottle is 100ml that comes for 850 rupees and as the quantity needed is just 2-3 pumps at the most; it will last really long due to which I think price is justified though that completely depends on you, how much you wish to splurge on a particular product.

Take: Wella Professionals Oil Reflections Smoothening Treatment helps smoothing out the hair just like the way serums do. When applied on the semi dried hair, it helps the brushing without causing too much hair breakage due to the knots, adding a mild sweet scent to the hair at the same time without weighing them down. It does add a shine to the hair though that is short-lived. Smoothening effect remain for a lot longer for my normal hair, but for dry hair it will not work the same. As it is not sticky, it can be tried for oily hair. Pump packaging makes it easier to use however be careful as it is made up of glass. Overall, a good product to try.
