White Sands Orchids Oil Review



I was really excited about getting my Orchids Oil from White Sands because I had been reading about it being used by alot of stars from Hollywood and beyond. It sorta makes me feel like a "star" knowing I am using something that one of my favorite TV characters is using or a star using it in a film!

Gosh, you would be surprised at how many of them use different hair products from White Sands! If you don't believe me, just go to Hollywood Loves White Sands and read the impressive list yourself!

For instance, Ghost Whisperer, Samantha Who, Dirty, Sexy Money, Private Practice and Ugly Betty to name a few!

But most impressive is Dancing With The Stars! Now, we know how they get all those gorgeous hairdos!!

No matter what hair style is needed, White Sands has a product to help Hollywood and you become whatever you wish to be.

I was sent a bottle of Orchids Oil and some samples of The Cure 24/7 to try. I have really dry hair and it tends to frizz quite a bit. I used to have really curly hair when I was younger and to make it more curly at times I would get permanents and boy, was that the wrong thing to do! On top of that I used to highlight my hair quite frequently.

Actually, I still do color my hair all over because of the grey I am trying desperately to keep at bay. So, all of those factors along with health issues have left my hair in sad shape. After using the Orchids Oil for about a week I noticed a difference in the amount of frizz along with the shine that had come back. That is what I missed the most, the shine, because it tells you that your hair is healthy. I chose the Orchids Oil because it is suppose to help chemically treated hair and from thermal stress (flat irons, curling irons, etc).

I do straighten my hair from time to time but try to do it only every so often as it defeats the purpose of getting my hair back to being healthy looking.

Here is what White Sands says about Orchids Oil (I decided to quote from them because they said it so much better than if I had tried to re-word it):
This Orchid oil extract restores moisture, shine, elasticity and softness to hair that has become damaged from chemical treatments, and thermal stress. White Sands’ interest in Orchids for hair is inspired from studies that have shown the orchid’s mysterious capacity for longevity, beauty, and its versatility to adjust to different environments with vibrant color. Orchid oil is very light weight, unlike most other oils it does not affect the hairs ability to perform when styling.

Now, The Cure 24/7 was absolutely awesome and when used with the Orchids Oil I got the best chance of reversing the damage that I had inflicted upon my hair. Within minutes of putting the application on, my hair felt smoother and looked shiny! You can apply either the Orchids Oil or The Cure 24/7 on wet hair or dry hair.

Make sure to only use about a quarter size amount because it goes a long way and you don't want to over do it and have your hair looking oily or so shiny that people will notice and wonder what the heck did you put in your hair!! But, seriously, The Cure 24/7 does repair damaged hair fibers to make your hair stronger, smoother and shinier.

You can apply anytime of day, whatever is more convenient for you. The Cure 24/7 lasted about 3 shampoos before I noticed I needed to apply it again, so you won't need to use it after every shampoo. All I can say is that both of these products worked wonders on my hair and it is so much more shiny, smoother and prettier than it has been in a long time.

And the best part is the scent of Orchids in the Orchids Oil is absolutely intoxicating! When I opened that bottle the smell of Orchids was unmistakable. It will leave your hair smelling so good you might not want to put on perfume that day!

White Sands has so many more products to try and I hope in the future I get to try some more to tell you about like their shampoos and conditioners. They have hydrating, moisturizing and voluming shampoos and the conditioners are the same so that you get a set with each kind that you need for your hair problem. They also carry styling products, sprays, other treatments beside the two I got to try and they have a curling iron that they recommend.

You can tell them what type of hair you have along with how you style your hair and they can recommend which products will work the best for you. Now, doesn't that sound great? You won't have to worry whether or not the product you just purchased will work or not on your hair because they take all of that into consideration and give you the best products to help you continue your hair routine!

Now for a little About Us/History on this great company:

With a passion for producing unique products catering to each individual’s artistic needs, White Sands is a professional hair care company committed to the hairdresser and the consumer. We strive to market and distribute the best performing and innovative hair care products in the world. All of our styling, cleansing, and treatment products define quality, style and performance.

With humble beginnings, White Sands is a family owned corporation created nearly 10 years ago by the Salas Family with only $1,500.00 in hand. Our family of five, Fernando, Patricia, Aarron, Noel and his wife Kelly began this adventure by filling products from gallons to 8.5oz bottles one at a time in Fernando’s garage.

In 1999, White Sands participated in the Premiere Beauty Show in Orlando Florida with just a 10 x 10 booth. As Fernando spent his day on stage styling hair, his wife and business partner Patricia sold the unique spray product he was using. By noon of the first day, 200 kits were sold – and the product didn’t even have a name. After this amazing first day, the Salas Family knew the days of working for others were over: the end of the trip christened the soon-to-be developed line White Sands.

In 2006, White Sands added yet another family member Don Stone (Brother-in-Law/Uncle) to grow distribution chains both nationally and internationally. Since this addition, White Sands has grown tremendously with 28 distributors nationwide. The White Sands family is truly living the American dream and a true testament that with hard work and perseverance you can accomplish anything you put your mind to.

This sounds interesting for me. I live in the desert, and with the dry air my hair is almost always frizzy. I was thinking of using a flat iron, but I do have some nice natural curls. This just might do the trick.
