Palmer’s Olive Oil Formula Shampoo & Leave-in conditioner review

‘If I had to use just 2 oils for my face & hair care, for the rest of my life, I will choose Olive Oil & Coconut Oil’

I have been feeling very festive. Enjoyed myself on Diwali and now I am preparing for Halloween. I believe good hair and skin are the keys to looking and feeling beautiful. Even though I was hit by the seasonal flu, what kept me looking and feeling like a million bucks was the fact that at least my hair looked shiny, happy & healthy and for that I thank Palmers.

As you are aware, I am one of Palmer’s brand ambassador in the UAE, and as a result, I get to use and review Palmer’s products before they even hit the market. You will be happy to know that Palmer’s UAE launched three haircare range here in the UAE at the start of this month:

1.    The Raw Shea Butter Range – You can read my review of the same here

2.    The Manuka Flower Honey Range. – Unfortunately, I have not tried it yet

3.    The Olive Oil Range- Keep reading 😊

Today, I will be reviewing their Olive Oil formula based Smoothing Shampoo & leave – in conditioner. I received these products from the company to use and review. I assure you that my review like any of my reviews will be honest and heartfelt.

Product description

I unboxed these products very happily singing Happy Diwali on my Insta- story. I hope you saw my excitement and felt it too. It’s because Palmer’s Olive Oil Formula Smoothing Shampoo moisturizes and smoothens frizzy hair, replenishes moisture and nutrients and removes product buildup. The balanced blend of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Hair Keratin Amino Acids and Vitamin E cleanses thoroughly and leaves hair softer, with a smoother texture, easier to style, healthier and stronger.

Happy Diwali

Key Ingredients

  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil: contains naturally occurring vitamins and minerals which act as antioxidants protecting hair and skin from damaging free radicals
  • Vitamin E: aides in hair’s natural ability to repair damage, an essential step in the process of strengthening the follicle that allows hair to grow long and healthy
  • Keratin: replenishes lost keratin in damaged hair, helping to strengthen and repair hair
  • Jamaican Black Castor Oil: It works for all hair types and textures. I am a fan of Castor oil and I have previously mentioned it benefits on this post. Click here.

Smoothing Shampoo

  • This rich, smoothing shampoo is specifically formulated to nourish and repair unruly frizz-prone hair
  • Infused with extra virgin olive oil and Jamaican black castor oil, it helps to detangle, defrizz, smooth and soften hair
  • Gentle enough for daily use, this is a sulfate free, paraben free, gluten free product that can even be used on tender scalps and sensitive skin

Leave – in conditioner

  • Palmer’s® Olive Oil Formula® Leave-In Conditioner nourishes and repairs dry, frizzy hair. Enriched with an intensive blend Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Vitamin E, Keratin, and Silk proteins, this lightweight spray helps control frizz, adds shine, reduces split ends, detangles and acts as a heat protectant from styling damage. Can be used daily on dry or wet hair to detangle and moisturize, leaving hair more manageable.
  • With continued use, hair becomes silkier and more manageable with frizz-free shine
  • Key hair-healthy ingredients combine to form a protective seal around unruly, frizz-prone, damaged hair, repairing and replacing essential moisture and adding unsurpassed shine


My Hair Texture & type:

I have naturally curly hair. I have used straightening products on my hair in the past and that has made my hair even more unruly now that the effect has gone, and difficult to manage. I believe in cruelty-free, paraben & sulfate free products for my hair type because I really don’t want to feed them harsh chemicals anymore.

How I used it

  • Olive Oil Formula Smoothing Shampoo: I had oiled my hair a night before as is my routine. So, I had an awfully oily lot of hair to wash ironically by the Olive Oil formula!! 😊 I started off by rinsing my hair with warm water thoroughly before lightly shampooing the scalp. I was impressed by the mild fragrance and it lathered better than the previous shampoo that I have used of Palmers. I then used my Shea Formula Curl Repair Moisture Conditioner by Palmer’s, another one of my favorite and then towel dried my hair.
  • Olive Oil Formula Leave-in Conditioner: I generously sprayed the leave-in conditioner across the length and breadth of my hair. I must say, that I like the easy to use spray packaging and it immediately tamed the unruliness of my quickly drying hair.

What I like

  1. I like that these products are paraben-free & sulfate free
  2. I like that with Olive Oil, it also has Black castor oil to add that extra punch of smoothness to my hair. I liked that after drying it didn’t flatten my hair. My curls were intact and so was the volume of my hair.
  3. My hair was visibly shiny and less frizzy, I am hoping for more benefits with continued use. See it for yourself in the pic.

The Verdict: 

The hero ingredient of this shampoo & conditioner duo is Olive Oil, something that I have been putting on my daughter’s hair and body since her infant days. So obviously it’s very safe and effective ingredient when it comes to hair and skin care.

Also, these products are a wonderful buy, priced at AED 32 each!! Now, why would I buy an extremely pricey hair product when Palmers gives me the same results, that too without the use of harsh chemicals!

I would recommend this line to all you ladies who have chemically treated hair which tends to get unruly. This olive oil formula will help you, I am sure.

I am told that these products are NOW AVAILABLE in selected Boots: Dubai Mall, Mall of the Emirates, Mirdif city center, Deira city center, Al Barsha and Al wahda mall in Abu Dhabi

  1. Ayesha Asif

    I’m currently using Palmer’s olive oil formula shampoo.
    It’s sooooooooooo great.
    Love it😍😍

    1. Love Life And The Little One

      Me too.. Yay!

  2. […] Keep it on for 20-30 minutes and wash it off with a mild shampoo & apply conditioner. Another quick tip. If you have dry, damaged hair, go for Baby shampoo and conditioner. I am using a green apple one from boots and man! it’s amazing. Another perk of being a Mom, you can flick your baby’s product and smell divine. Do read my review of Olive Oil formula based Palmer’s Shampoo & Leave-in Conditioner, here. […]

  3. Curious, does it change the texture of your hair, like does it feel sticky? I’ve tried some of these less chemical shampoos and shea moisture did that to my hair, almost made it feel like straw.

    1. Love Life And The Little One

      Nope, I didn’t feel that way. Also I have dry frizzy hair, so infact, they felt soft after wash

  4. I will love to try the Manuka Flower Honey range! The leave-in conditioner might be something I need because my hair’s really frizzy from all the dyeing and styling from filming and photoshoot!

    1. Love Life And The Little One

      Hi, yes, I hear you. It’s precisely the reason why I loved the leave in conditioner

  5. We don’t have Palmer in Italy I think but it sounds so great. Specially I would love tri the olive oil one

    1. Love Life And The Little One

      I know. And when I visited Italy, I realized their love for olive oil

  6. Elizabeth O

    I haven’t tried this Palmer’s shampoo and leave in conditioner before.But it looks so interesting. Yes!! Olive oil as a lot of benefits. Likewise, in our hair. I will definitely check this out.

    1. Love Life And The Little One

      Thanks so much.

  7. So one more product to be added to my list of to be used – products. Olive oil is very good when it comes to conditioning

    1. Love Life And The Little One

      I agree. Hope you like it

  8. Are those products available in Indian market ? After reading your review I am keen to try out the hair care products of Palmer’ s..

    1. Love Life And The Little One

      Unfortunately, not yet available in India

  9. Frank

    Awesome product and the best that it contains the Vitamin E which is awesome for healthy hair and yet it contains more of healthy stuff for the hair xp :))

  10. I’m going to have to look for these. My hair has been having a tough time. I started using a homemade mixture of conditioner, olive oil and tea tree oil, but my hair and scalp is not responding well. Time to try something new!

  11. I have not tried this Palmer’s products before, but these look great! I will definitely check and looking forward to try these products.

  12. The Manuka honey flower range sounds interesting! Must be smelling great and that one of my prioritize in good qualit products. Thanks for the useful share! 🙂

  13. Olive oil and coconut oil have so many benefits! I’m glad you found a brand that focuses on those ingredients. I’m pretty sure this shampoo and conditioner are worth getting!

  14. Sounds like an amazing range of hair care products with Olive oil. I like that the products have castor oil too, which helps with the shine and is also good for scalp. Nice detailed review.

  15. I’ve never used olive oil for my crazy curls. Right now I am into Tea Tree Oil base but olive oil might be a good alternative

  16. Love palmer range and have used it generously during my pregnancy days. Haven’t tried this one yet but will check out.

  17. Ah I am glad you think these are good! I like Palmers shea butter body lotions but I’ve not tried any of their olive oil range, I will have to find them!

  18. most of the palmers product are good to use…and this shampoo is good for those who have hair fall problems.

  19. Corinne and Kirsty

    I haven’t tried the olive range however I have tried the coconut one and reviewed it on the blog! What a good range! glad to hear this one is good too!

  20. I love Palmers products. I swore by the cocoa butter lotions when I was pregnant. I will have to check this out!

  21. A great product which I also use for my wild and frizzy hair. Great stuff!

  22. how very interesting! i like to use coconut oil for my hair, but have never used shampoo/conditioner with olive oil in it. i would love to give it a try though, my curly locks can use all the moisture they can get!

  23. This sounds like an interesting product. I love that it is free of sulfates and all of that. I am always looking for a good leave in conditioner so maybe I will look into this. But you’re right Olive Oil is the best! I love it.
