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 Oil

I liked the way this product made my hair feel and the way it helped my frizz but I felt that the sample packaging made it difficult to use. I wasnt able to use the product enough to decide if I felt I would replace my current product.

for the rare occasion

My hair is naturally oily, but I like to use a product like this occasionally to keep it healthy and shiny. I liked this product- nice texture and feel after using.

Hair product

I have tried this product in the past and it didn't do much for my hair except weigh it down.

I like this

This product was very helpful my scalp has been very dry. I only put the oil only on my roots and oh how I could tell the difference. I dont think I would repurchase this however it was a nice treatment for my hair.

Works Well

This is a treatment that left my hair feeling great. Small amount was sent and I have long, thick, hair. My hair is also really dry. I think if I used it per instructions it would help my hair!

not sure about this

I have very thin fine hair so using this product made my hair feel and look very greasy but after a few washes my hair felt and looked fantastic so I am not sure how I feel about it.

Smells great

My sample smelled fresh and wonderful. It felt silky going on. But, my hair isn't frizzy or unhealthy, so I don't really need this product. Birchbox missed the mark on sending this to me. I could have used a volumizer spray or mousse, not something that weighs my hair down. If it's right for you, I'm sure it's a great product.

Does Fine

This hair oil does the job and hydrated my hair well. However, I have other oils that work just the same. Nothing really made it stand out from any of the others for me.
