| Review | Augustinus Bader The Hair Oil 

If I could hoard one hair product, it would be hair oils. I have tried so many, accumulated so many, and now, I may have found the best of the best. Augustinus Bader is known for producing products with the ability to repair and my hair most definitely needs help repairing! I am excited to see the brand move into the haircare category of the beauty industry and from my previous experience with the brand, I have very high hopes for this formula. Read on to find out if this formula is worth a ton of praise or not worth the money. 

Augustinus Bader The Hair Oil Review

The Augustinus Bader The Hair Oil retails for $50.00 USD and is available at Augustinus Bader and other retailers. This reparative hair oil is housed in a luxurious glass bottle with a copper dropper top. The bottle is in the iconic Augustinus Bader blue and is opaque. The bottle really is beautiful and the dropper allows you to dispense the perfect amount of oil, minimizing waste and preventing the user from going overboard.

Augustinus Bader The Hair Oil Review


This hair oil is incredibly lightweight, probably the lightest oil I have ever tried. It has a very thin texture that barely feels like oil. This is a very potent hair oil, despite feeling so light, I find that you only need a few drops to thoroughly coat your hair. I highly recommend using less than you thin k you need because this formula is so thin and spreads to easily, you can go overboard really fast. The thin texture spreads out very easily and it doesn't weigh down the hair, even very fine hair. I recommend applying a few drops to your palms, rubbing your palms together to evenly distribute the product on the hands, and then distribute the oil through your hair. 

This formula can be used on damp or dry hair without any issues. I like to use it both on my damp hair before I blowdry or airdry my hair. I focus the product on my lengths and ends, then I apply the remaining product toward my roots. Then, I like to brush thoroughly through my hair before blowdrying. Using it before heat styling really helps nourish and protect the hair during styling. I notice a huge difference in the texture of my hair. It instantly hydrates and softens the hair. I also use it after blowdrying or styling my hair to smooth out any frizz on the lengths and ends of the hair. It really gives the finished hair a smooth and silky finish, better than other hair oils than I have tried. Also, this hair oil gives my hair exceptional shine and makes it look very healthy but it doesn't feel greasy or heavy.

This hair oil is very nourishing because you can instantly feel the difference in the texture of your hair. After shampooing or heat styling my lengths and ends are fairly dry but when I apply this oil, my hair feels significantly smoother and softer. This hair oil gives my hair the silkiest and smoothest finish post-blowout I have ever seen! Typically, after I blowdry my hair, there is significant frizziness and the texture of my hair isn't silky smooth. After I started using this oil, I've had the best blowouts I have ever achieved! Even days after, my hair is is ultra-smooth, soft, and silky. My hair is touchable, healthy, and shiny! 

I love the light and thin texture because I can apply the oil to my hair whenever it feels dry but it doesn't add a greasy texture to my hair. It just adds more shine and hydration to my dry hair. This product does have a fragrance but it is extremely faint and light. I have to press my nose near it and the fragrance is familiar but hard to explain. It has an almost fruity-clean scent but it is barely detectable, almost like a fragrance you would find in skincare. Once applied to the hair, you can't detect the scent at all. 

The beauty of this oil is that it not only deeply hydrates your strands but it seems to seal the hairs in a protective veil, which prevents the hair splitting, breaking, and tangling. My hair feels so silky that it almost feels like I'm running my hands through water. Each strand just slips through my fingers and it is the healthiest my hair has ever looked without a greasy feeling throughout my locks. I also love that this formula is so versatile because I can use it in wet or dry hair. It is a very protective and preventative formula that just really improves the health of my hair despite, all the damage I put it through like, dying it, heat styling, and lack of trimming it.

The full ingredients list for the website is listed here: 

Coco-Caprylate/Caprate, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Ethyl Oleate, Punica Granatum Seed Oil, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Undecane, Ethylhexyl Polyhydroxystearate, Squalane, Tridecane, Adansonia Digitata Seed Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Pelargonium Graveolens Oil, Tocopherol, Aqua/Water/Eau, Glycerin, Lecithin, Rosa Damascena Flower Oil, Pentylene Glycol, Alanyl Glutamine, Arginine, Brassica Alba Seed Extract, Hydrolyzed Rice Protein, Lithothamnion Calcareum Extract, Oligopeptide-177, Oligopeptide-6, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Hydroxide, Citronellol, Geraniol, Linalool, Citral.

The brand touts that the hair range is "powered by TFC8® technology" but doesn't necessarily say it contains TFC8® technology. From what I see in the full ingredients list, their exclusive complex is not included in the formula because it would be listed as PALMITOYL TRIPEPTIDE-8 but I don't see this peptide complex in this formula. I believe what they mean by "powered by TFC8® technology" is the formula is based on similar research but not necessarily the same technology. To me, this is the brand using their formula's notoriety to market their other products. I personally find this a little deceptive. I don't think the brand needs this over-the-top type of marketing because their products really speak for themselves.

Augustinus Bader The Hair Oil Review


I have tried A LOT of hair oils and while I have liked most of them, this one blows them all out of the water by a tenfold! I honestly didn't think a hair oil could actually get much better than the ones I have tried but if anyone could so it, it would be Augustinus Bader. His products don't come cheap and I would tell you if it was garbage because I pay for all my products from the brand myself, but this oil is incredible! This hair oil gives me the silkiest, shiniest, and healthiest hair! Even with months without a hair cut, color-treated hair, and excessive heat styling, my hair is still looking the best it ever has! This oil has changed my hair routine, making it so much easier and faster to dry my hair, even when I I air dry it. It allows my blowouts to look consistently amazing! I just love how silky and soft my hair looks after a blowout. I am not great a styling my hair but this oil makes my hair look like I can out of salon every time! I can't recommend this oil enough! It has made my hair maintenance and styling routine so enjoyable. While it is expensive, you need so little that even with long hair, like mine, your bottle will last forever. Once you try this hair oil, you will never want to use another one!
