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!

Great hair rescue

Up till a a few days ago I had long hair that was dry and would tangle easily. I got a sample of this in my March Birchbox and love it. It helped my hair look healthier and easier to comb and controlled the frizz. I can't wait to buy a bottle.

Great

Made my hair shine and it did not look greasy or limp. It smelled wonderful.
I will purchase this product after I get paid.

Great product, a little heavy

This product worked well to tame the frizz, (and smelled fantastic!) but the thickness of the oil causes it to build up easily on your hair. So use sparingly or it will look like you dunked your head in a bucket of oil.

leaves my dry hair super soft

I'm loving this light weight oil. I have dry curly hair and have used many oils which claim to moisturize. All you need is a small amt and it leaves your hair so soft and luxurious. This is an absolute must have !

Super light and hydrating!

Really liked this product. It's super light and doesn't weight my hair down or leave it feeling greasy and the scent is really light as well.

good product

Gave my hair a nice beachy look and smell on day one, i may have used a little to much as my hair felt a little oily. Day two my hair was sleek and shiny. Will def consider purchasing in the future.

little goes a LONG way

this is a great product but beware- really only put a dime size amount throughout your entire hair. And careful of the scalp area. It'll weigh down your roots.

Great Scent!

I tried this oil on my curly hair after washing and alllowed it to air dry. I was pleasantly suprised by the lovely scent and the light texture of the oil, which left my hair shiny and smooth. Frizz free, its definitely a keeper!

Game changer

Prior to use, I had been having a bout with brittle, dry hair after this treacherous winter. This product made me look like I just spent $100 on a blow out in a super fabulous salon.
