Review: ORS Incredibly Rich Moisturizing Hair Lotion

Hair is a big part of African American culture, especially for women (for better or worse). Whether you're into extravagant weave or not, you can't show up somewhere with your hair looking a hot mess.

Not only that, but it takes a lot of time, effort, and products for African American women to take care of their hair, from moisturizers, to hair oil, to gel, to relaxers. As much of a demand as there is for hair care products, it's actually pretty hard to find products that work the way they say they do.

Most African Americans have naturally dry hair, so we have to use moisturizers and oils so our hair doesn't become too dry and brittle. Way back when, the only thing that did the trick was hair grease, which is what it sounds like, grease that you put in your hair. Nowadays, there are a ton of hair moisturizers to choose from.

I've tried a lot of hair moisturizers, but the best is ORS Olive Oil Incredibly Rich Moisturizing Hair Lotion. All of the ORS products, including the relaxer, have olive oil in them for natural moisture retention.

First off, the thing I like about the hair lotion is that it has a subtle, non-offensive smell. Some hair moisturizers, especially the ones with natural ingredients, can smell horrible. The ORS hair lotion has a subtle smell that does not have a lot of fragrance so that people think you've dumped a bottle of perfume on your head.

Secondly, the lotion itself is thick and rich, but it doesn't leave your hair weighed down, and it absorbs quickly, so there is no build up and no residue when you touch your hair. It also gives your hair a healthy shine.

The bottle says to use a small amount, but since my hair is very thick, I use about double the amount specified. Depending on how dry your hair gets, you can probably get away with only using this hair lotion every few days (I usually moisturize my hair once a week, but that's only because I'm pretty bad at moisturizing my hair frequently enough).

I would definitely recommend ORS Olive Oil Incredibly Rich Moisturizing Hair Lotion as a hair moisturizer. It's thick and creamy, but isn't heavy once you put it on. It also does a great job of moisturizing. When I use it regularly, I notice that my hair isn't as brittle, and I have less breakage (meaning not as much hair in the sink after combing)!


  1. Excellent review! This sounds awesome! I have dry hair. My hair is just now recovering from a bad relaxer. Will definitely look for this at Sally's. Thanks!

    1. Thanks! This stuff is absolutely the best moisturizer ever, and I highly recommend it.

  2. I love the hair product. Would you like to follow each other on GFC, Bloglovin & Google+? If interested, please let me know.


    1. I know; I don't know what I'd do without it! I'd love to follow you!

  3. hmmm I have brittle hair, I should really look into this as well. and yeah I agree with you it's hard to find your "dream job" after you graduate from university despite what the movies portray and what the older generation tells us! I have to say that we are definitely fighters compare to them!
