Treat your strands to the Agave Smoothing Trio, which includes this nourishing oil, plus Agave’s Smoothing Shampoo and Smoothing Conditioner.

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!

Smells AMAZING!
Purchased

The one big reason I purchased this product after trying the sample is because it smells absolutely amazing! A little bit goes a long way yet it is very lightweight. I usually just put it on my ends and it helps keep them from drying out. I use it on wet or dry hair. You can also use it on your body too which is a plus because it feels great and smells great.

Just okay.
Sampled

I was excited to try this healing oil. However, it did not live up to my expectations. It was okay. Made my hair feel too heavy and took more than one shampoo to wash out. Smelled great though.

My favorite Product
SampledPurchased

I am obsessed with the Agave Oil after receiving the sample in my box. I ordered a full bottle and use a dime size amount of oil twice a week on clean, damp hair. I then blow dry my hair normally. The oil smells incredible and makes my hair wonderfully shiny and soft. It also has helped my hair grow faster.

Not impressed
Sampled

I have thick, coarse, curly hair, and this oil treatment didnt really change anything for me. It was lightweight, which was nice, but not effective on my hair. Also, the smell was too strong for me.

Great! Silky Smooth Hair
Sampled

I finally tired my sample and I was so impressed!! I had been putting it off because I already had products that I liked for blow drying and haven't cared much for oils in the past. I am so upset that I waited because this oil works wonders. I was able to get through my blow dry with out any additional detanglers and after there was no static, frizz or flyaways that I have gotten accustomed to, and that's on bleached blonde hair to boot! I recommend this to anyone!

I love this stuff
SampledPurchased

I got this sample in my first birchbox a while back and I've always loved it.. I'm just now purchasing full size and it's just the same as I remember. it leaves my hair feeling soft and moisturized, and when I use it on damp hair just out of the shower, it set angles it also. I love this stuff

Amazing

I purchased this product after trying the sample. I have used it everyday since! I recommend it to everyone. I was worried that using an "oil" would leave my hair greasy and oily as the day went on but surprisingly this product only made my hair More smooth, soft and tangle-free. My hair is LESS greasy than it was before I started using this (NO products). Love this! Wish I could buy a jug :)

keeps the frizz away

I began using a small droplet of this oil in my wet hair along with my heat protector spray before blow drying. I feel like my hair stays shiny and damage has slowed down from the heat. Any frizz I used to get from blow drying my hair has decreased significantly. I can still use a flat iron w/out that greasy feeling some oils can leave behind.

Agave Healing Oil For Hair

I will definitely be buying this product. I live in a really dry climate and my hair is always dry, damaged, etc. This product is great!
