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!

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

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!

Adds too much shine
Sampled

I always feel that if my hair is shiny then it needs to be washed. Despite this product being nice, it left my hair far too shiny for me to want to use it on a regular basis.

Fine hair
Sampled

This was okay, but since I have fine hair I couldn't use it. Weighs it down and makes it incredibly oily. I think this will be good for curly hair.

Good Stuff
Sampled

I was able to get a few uses out of the sample I received. It smelled good and it seemed to help with my frizzy and unruly hair. It was lightweight and not to heavy on my hair.

Smells nice, but I didn't see the shine.
Sampled

I have very dry hair, so maybe I underconditioned beforehand, but the oil didn't seem to do much for me before blowdrying my hair. I didn't feel that it moisturized much, but it was indeed very lightweight. Smells good though!

Love it
SampledPurchased

I have frizzy curly hair and flat iron my hair often. I will put it in my hair when it is wet to blow dry and then once I am done flat ironing and it makes a huge difference with the frizz. It smells good too!

LOVE!!!!

This product is absolutely wonderful on my thick, coarse, naturally curly hair.

The sample was super small but it was great... smells awesome, does not leave your hair greasy.
