REVIEW: Oscar Blandi Hair Care

For me it seems like I have to take extra special care of my hair during the hot humid summer months.  I am in and out of the lake, so I am washing my hair everyday, plus I am out in the hot sun and the harmful rays of the sun are playing havoc on my hair.  So all this washing and blow drying of my hair makes it vital for me to use quality products on it that are going to keep it healthy and protected and looking beautiful.  I was given the opportunity to try out two fabulous products from Oscar Blandi that are just perfect for maintaining gorgeous summer hair!  I am very excited to be able to tell you about them in my review.  But first, let me introduce Oscar Blandi to you:

In passion, lies beauty.

This is the quintessential statement behind Oscar Blandi’s philosophy on haircare. This message is consistent throughout every element of the Oscar Blandi empire. It is evident in Oscar’s fervent methods of styling, within the walls of his namesake salon, throughout his dedicated team of stylists and colorists, and inside every product in his extraordinary haircare collection.

It has been more than twenty years since Oscar left his home in Naples to bring his talents and old-world Italian methods of haircare to the United States. Oscar was born with styling in his blood; his father, brother, and three sisters were all in the business. Oscar himself began working on hair at the age of fourteen in the back of his father’s salon. He later left to work in several of his father’s colleague’s salons and attend art school to gain a diverse perspective and develop his own sense of detail.

Within a few years of his arrival in the states, Oscar opened his own salons in the prestigious Plaza Hotel and on Madison Avenue. With his namesake salons tremendously successful, Oscar’s reputation as one of the most sought-after hair dressers in New York and Hollywood quickly followed. His loyal celebrity clients include, Jennifer Garner, Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Faith Hill and Kelly Ripa to name a few.

Blending his extensive professional experience with innovation, Oscar launched the Oscar Blandi Product Collection in 2005 to renew and rejuvenate for “Oscar-worthy” hair. Oscar’s elegant, purposeful treatments and styling solutions are inspired by his love of hair and his passion for helping women express themselves confidently. This unique collection of hair essentials are infused with rich botanical ingredients to provide a luxurious experience for the senses and any hair style. Oscar Blandi products are available at the finest beauty retailers including Sephora, Ulta, QVC and OscarBlandi.com.

When Oscar is not creating his products or sophisticated red carpet looks for celebrities and socialites alike, Oscar can be found at his newly opened salon at 545 Madison Avenue. Like everything else in his haircare domain, this luxurious space reflects Oscar’s heritage and artistic passion.


I was sent two exceptional Oscar Blandi products.  I have been using them for a little over a week now, and I have fallen in love with both of them, for different reasons!  Two key products that are just incredibly amazing for effortlessly keeping your hair in tip top shape all summer long.  Drumroll, here they are:

Price:  $35

You can purchase this and other Oscar Blandi products at Ulta.com HERE or the Oscar Blandi Website HERE


Olio di Jasmine Hair Serum banishes frizz and imparts long lasting shine to all hair types.  This hair serum prevents unwanted frizz while giving long lasting shine, definition and lightweight reflection to dull hair.

  • Enhances shine
  • Minimizes frizz and fly-aways
  • Strengthens and moisturizes to help protect hair from heat damage
  • Jasmine essential oils provide a sensual, intoxicating fragrance for the hair
  • 1.69 oz.


Apply a few drops as needed and style as desired.  Use on dry hair to finish desired look or use on damp hair before blow-dry to protect hair from heat.


This product is literally the most amazing hair serum I have ever tried and I have used hundreds of them over the years.  My hair can frizz up at the very slightest hint of humidity in the air.  So with the humidity at 80% this past week, it was an ideal time to test out just how well this product can keep my frizz level down to a minimum.  I am thrilled to be able to report that not only did it keep my frizz level down, it kept my hair frizz-free!!  That's right, just a couple of small drops of this miracle in a jar worked wonders on my hair and made it silky smooth and soft.

But it keeps getting better!  The product not only eliminated the frizz-factor, but is made my hair shine with such brilliance!  To me, shiny hair is healthy hair.  When hair looks dull and lifeless, that indicates hair that needs some TLC.  This product instantly adds shine and hydration to my hair to make it look radiant and nourished.

OK, but there is more!  The scent, oh my goodness the aroma of this serum is sensational, or shall I say sensual!  If you love the fragrance of Jasmine, you will not be disappointed with this product.  It has Jasmine essential oil in it and so when you apply a few drops to your hair your hair immediately smells so lovely.  I have long hair so it was easy for me to take some of it and just inhale in the beauty of the scent.  It is so pleasing to the senses and who doesn't want hair that smells and looks gorgeous!  This product is a keeper for me!

You are at the beach, your have spent the day there, you have been swimming, sweating and your hair looks and feels disgustingly dirty.  Have no fear, this product is here!  In seconds you can transform your icky beach hair into clean, refreshed and smelling pretty hair!  This product is genius.  It literally cleans and revitalizes your hair just as if you had taken a shower and shampooed it yourself.  It will work the same if you have been swimming in a chlorinated pool.  I have used it this past week for both instances and so did a few of my girlfriends.  We all concluded we love this product.  We all have totally different hair types and styles and for each one of us we felt this product adequately and thoroughly cleaned our hair and made it look fresh in a matter of seconds.

Or, how about those mornings where you know you want to wash your hair, but you are just too tired or pressed for time and you are running late?  This product will be there to save you time and energy, and in moments you can have your hair looking rejuvenated, full and bouncy for the day. 

Oh and did I mention how intoxicatingly amazing this product smells?! Lemon verbena, so invigorating and energizing for your senses to breathe in!  Not only will you have happy hair, but you will feel elated when you apply this heavenly product to your hair.  I followed the application instruction to a tee and when you do that this product will not disappoint.  I found not only spraying it directly to my scalp and massaging it into the roots effectively works, but also I took the tip on spraying it onto my hair brush and also working it through my hair that way was equally effective.  I didn't mind trying both methods because this product is so pleasurable to inhale and use.  Again, another Oscar Blandi product that will keep you wanted to sniff your own hair over and over again.  I love it!  You will to, I am sure of it!

This concludes my review.
