Emu Oil

Hi Guys!

How has everyone been? I've been sick :-( I even had to miss our Xmas party, which to be honest I'm not too fussed about lol! I think I'll return my outfit though, it was this dress that I'm sure Cher Lloyd wore on Xfactor. I was going to team it up with black and gold accessories. Then black and gold smokey eyes with Arabic liner.

Anyways, back to the Emu Oil. Ok, when I purchased it I thought I'd be ok using it as I just wouldn't think about it. But it's fat from an Emu bird! Then I put it in perspective, it's not like I'm a vegetarian! Anyways, I wont go into how it's made etc...I haven't even researched it, I don't want to.

What does it do?
Research shows that Emu oil has been used for thousands of years as a natural medicine by the Aborigines of Australia. It was used for Arthritis pain relief, to heal wounds, burns, sunburns, and to reduce the pain, itch & swelling of insect bites and stings. It's high in vitamin e, contains both Omega-3 and Omega-6 Fatty Acids,  and is an excellent anti-inflamatory. However, now a days, Emu oil is now known for so much more. Wrinkles, hair loss and growth, acne scarring, stretch marks, sore muscles, rheumatism, headaches, gum disease, age spots etc...more can be found listed on this site.

I bought it for hair loss, and have been using it for the past few weeks. I don't use it every day, just once or twice a week as a conditioning treatment. I mix it with some olive oil as it's quite a thick oil and I don't want to use too much of it. I haven't seen a difference in hair loss in all honesty, maybe because I'm meant to be using it more often?! Not sure. When I do use it, my hair looks thicker, softer and a lot shinier. However, I can get the same sort of results with my Philip Kingsley Elasticizer, which is about £15 cheaper & not made from a bird.  

So, would I buy it again? I don't think so. The fact that it's the fat from a bird puts me off even using it! It doesn't really give the benefits that warrant me spending like £40 for a small bottle of oil. I think my hair loss is just random as it'll fall for a week then not fall for about 2 weeks. I don't think anything topical is really going to make a difference...not sure what will! However, Emu Oil isn't a product for me.

Hope this review helped....It's not the best really, is it?! Lol!

Hope you're having a great weekend!

Love Shameera XxX


  1. This line made me lol: "which is about £15 cheaper & not made from a bird".

    I do agree £40 is a lot to spend for something that is essentially fat from a really big chicken..

  2. Lol true though...I'm sure there are no bird ingredients in the elasticizer haha!
    It is just like a big chicken...Lol!

  3. Hi, i also have problem with hair loss!
    was just wondering if u use it on ur hair or scalp?
    coz all of my hair loss serum shud be applied to the scalp!hehe

  4. Hi Sorry I've only just seen your comment as blogger has decided not to send me emails to notify me of comments :@ Anyways, I use it on both, as it's an oil I massage it into my scalp then on my hair to nourish it. The Serums like Nioxin that I use are only on the scalp :) x
