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!

Hair feels great

I used this product today and my hair feels great. I'm a few days away from a cut and color and wanted something to get my hair looking refreshed.. I have naturally curly hair and it feels so soft.

A little goes a long way

I like the smell & a small amount goes a long way. Used too much the first time & it left my hair greasy.

Better than others I've tried
Sampled

Have tried a few hair oils and they didn't seem to penetrate but left a residue. At first, it seemed like Agave Healing Oil wasgoing to be the same but as the day wore on, it made my hair less frizzy, softer. I tried it with another blowout product and my hair seemed smoother and stayed straight for several days.

No too shabby
Sampled

This product seem to work like I expected. I have naturally curly hair, but I straighten it most days. This oil really cut down on the frizz that often happens when I diffuse my hair and let it curl. I like the sample, but I'm not sure I will purchase this product because of the price.

Felt amazing!
Sampled

I loved this. It didn't have the goopy, sticky feeling I'm used to with these sorts of products, and just made my hair feel really sleek and shiny. I blow dry and straighten my naturally, curly hair pretty frequently, which is pretty hard on it. This product was great for protecting and smoothing.

Too heavy for fine hair

LOVE the fragrance but it was way too heavy for my fine hair type.

Nice product; price is too high
Sampled

I have been using hair oils since I was a teenager. I thought I'd used every type(Camilla oil, Argan oil, etc.) so it was a nice treat to try a new one!
The Agave oil was great, did everything it claimed, & the scent was lovely.
Unfortunately, it does not work any better than the other oils I use or have used, to justify the price.

More Please!

I've used argan, awapuhi & ginger oils on my hair in the past and thought this would be pretty much the same. However, it was different, it made my hair much shinier, sleeker and more manageable than even the argan oil, I was surprised! I loved it and it smells great! It's pretty pricey though, so I'll be saving my pennies to get a bottle :)

Smells good
Sampled

I would prefer this hair oil over Moroccan oil for two reasons. The smell and the way it made my hair feel after drying.

I usually let my hair air dry at night and add my oils after showering. I loved the smell of this product and it didn't make my hair feel heavy or greasy.
