I have used various lavender sleep aids in the form of roll-on oils and pillow sprays, but I have never come across a hair spray that helps aid sleep. I came across This Works Sleep Plus Hair Elixir as I received a sample in a beauty box that I purchased and I was happy to give it a go.
It’s a motion activated 2-in-1 overnight hair treatment that can help to encourage healthy sleep patterns and also help with unruly hair. It uses 100% natural essential oils which help to give you a good nights sleep with the added plus of softer, shinier hair.
I don’t suffer from insomnia, but I do find it hard to relax on a night, so it does take me a while to fall asleep and I also have curly hair, so often wake up looking like I have been dragged through a hedge backwards, so this product seemed well suited to my needs.
You spray it directly onto hair just before going to bed (it can be applied to wet or dry hair). What I like most about this product, is that you spray it around your head, so it has the effect of a cloud of lavender around you, which means it’s easy to breathe in to aid relaxation. With pillow sprays and roll-on oils, I sometimes find that I cannot even smell the product, so it’s nice to get a big whiff of lavender as you spray the product in your hair and the fragrance sticks around for a while.
I did find that it helps me relax on a night and when I wake up my hair looks less like a birds nest, but seeing as how thick and curly my hair is I would not expect miracles in that department. This Works Sleep Plus Hair Elixir costs £25 for 80ml.
I bought this product with my own money
