Oliver J Woods
After 20 years of searching for the right range of top quality hair products, leading hairstylist Oliver decided to develop his own range and has spent the last two years researching and testing.
The wait is now over and Oliver has launched his own men’s grooming products all made with natural ingredients and with the OJW signature scent of bergamot, patchouli, amber, cedar and sandalwood.
The range includes:
A matt clay with abyssinica seed and hazelnut oils to give a firm workable hold.
A flexible wax to revitalise and protect with perica, coconut and sativa oils.
A Himalayan blend of perilla, macadamia and abyssinica seed oils. For calming frizzy hair, taming of feral beards and enriching the face and hair.
For wet or dry hair. The salt absorbs any oiliness while natural seaweed extract gives body and avoids dryness and tangling.
All products are cruelty free and all (except the Blackseed Wax) are vegan friendly.
