Agave

Birchbox Breakdown

Mexico’s blue agave is best known as the source of tequila, but we’re also intoxicated by its ability to moisturize and strengthen hair. Agave extract is a key ingredient in this healing oil treatment created by Beverly Hills hairdresser Fernando Romero (Romero, an Acapulco native, calls agave “nature’s smoothing secret.”). The lightweight oil helps hair build resiliency as it boosts vibrancy, shine, and color. We’ll raise a glass to that!

How it Works

The amino sugars in agave soothe damaged hair and infuse it with moisture. This fragrant healing oil treatment is also packed with plenty of other natural conditioning ingredients to keep hair soft and sleek: vanilla, coconut, and baobab seed oil, to name a few. And it’s free of the stuff that’s not so good for your locks: parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.

How to Use

Warm a dime-sized dab of oil between your palms and distribute it throughout damp hair evenly, from roots to ends. Air dry for a natural look, or blow dry for a sleeker style. And don’t stop there—this also doubles as a hydrating body oil!

Not for thin hair

It wasn't that great. It made my hair feel super greasy and looked wet. Not good if you don't have super thick hair.

Made me feel like I needed a clarifying shampoo

I know that this is a healing oil, so that it will be... OILY. But, it left me feeling greasy and in need of a good clarifying shampoo. Not my favorite.

Love

I love this product even though I do not have frizzy curls my hair is still dry and slightly damaged from over processing. I only used it on the ends (because they are the driest part of my hair, also the sample size is pretty small for someone with A LOT of hair) and it really seemed to help.

Amazing fragrance but kind of heavy

I loved the smell of this treatment oil! I have fine hair though and it weighed it down. I definitely felt like I needed to wash it out. My hair does feel smoother though and has more shine. If I didn't have such fine hair I'd be more included to use it again.

Average

I liked the smell and feel of my hair after application. However, I have such long hair that the sample wasn't enough to really see a difference from the other oil I'm already using. The price point is also a wee bit high for me to justify switching brands.

Love the way this smells!

I was surprised by how much I really liked this product. My hair is quick to get oily, I can't ever go a day without washing it. To put oil ON my hair on purpose seemed crazy... but this was nice! When used in small increments it made my hair really soft and shiny. It really smells ridiculously good and that is always a plus. I made the mistake once of applying too much and my hair was a little slick, but since then a little at a time has been good. Using it in smaller doses has made my sample go a loooong way!

Seriously amazing

This stuff is so awesome! I have super thick hair that tend to get oily quickly but this product worked so well! You only need to use a tiny pea-sized amount in order for it to work. I loved the smell and the texture it left.

Will be buying as soon as I run out of my current oil.

Unlike other oils!

My hair is fine..but frizzy. Unfortunately most oils weigh my hair down but this did the exact opposite! It was totally lightweight, provided great frizz control, made my hair extremely soft and smelled great!
