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!

Shiny hair
Sampled

I have really thick and frizzy hair and while this product was nice and made my hair shinier and softer, it didn't have much of an effect on de-frizzing which is the main reason I want hair oil.

May have made my hair shinny...
Sampled

But overall the sample was too small to really tell. It seemed like most hair oils out there, made your hair shinny because of the oil but also a little greasy. The smell was nice.

Oily hair..
Sampled

I'm not a fan of this. It mostly just made my hair oily. I've found other products that moisturize, protect, and shine without leaving oily residue.

Smells great

I love the way this made my hair smell and it did leave it feeling soft. A little pricey but definitely made it feel like I was treating myself

Great!

It really made my hair soft! I definitely want to buy it, I just wish it wasn't so expensive. I think the size might be worth it though!

Amazing hair oil
Sampled

I have thick, coarse, dry hair and am very accustomed to using hair oils. This is by far the best I have tried. And the amazing smell is just icing on the cake:)

Finally a great oil!

I have used a lot of oils for my short dark curly hair. Leaving it frizzy and dry. When I used this it smells good, and left my hair frizz free and defined curls. Love love it!

Good smell
Sampled

I really like to use hair oil and this was a good one to try that I had never heard of before. It had a nice smell which was not too strong. It did protect my hair and leave it soft.
