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!

Leaves my curls looking great!

I have curly hair so frizz is obviously a problem. I really like this product though! I apply it before I put in my mousse. I find that I could only apply it to my ends though or it left my scalp looking greasy.

I love it

Love it love it love it. I got a lot of use out of my sample size because you need the SMALLEST amount especially with my shoulder length and thin hair. Noticeable difference when I am, am not using it. I just run it through my hair after the shower. So perfect. I want it.

I'm in love with this product!

I used it for the first time a couple of days ago and I absolutely love it. My hair is smooth and it gave it the shine it needed. It looks healthier than it has ever have been. Even my husband noticed.

A must have for me!

Didn't see a huge change.
Sampled

When I first saw the sample, I didn't think it would be nearly enough for my very long and thick hair, but I was wrong. The sample was plenty for more than one use. I ended up using what I think was probably too much oil the first time, and I left it in my damp hair after the shower, waited a while, and then blow dried my hair for 2-3 minutes for some volume. I loved the smell, but haven't noticed any major differences in my hair post-use. For the price it is retailing at, I definitely wouldn't be purchasing this one.

Just Okay
Sampled

This smelled great, but made my hair appear somewhat oily. I have straight hair and think this would work better on someone who has a little more texture to their hair. Also, the packaging was not good. There was more in the container than for one use, but because it was not resealable I used too much... probably why my hair appeared oily.

Hair Oil
Sampled

For the hair, I wasn't impressed. I was, however, afraid to use the recommended amount because I didn't want my hair to look or feel oily. I normally have thick, dry, coarse hair, so I thought this would be good. It was good as a body oil, though!

Good Product for Frizz Control
Sampled

I am used to a spritz on oil treatment product so using my fingers to apply was different for me but okay. You definitely want to apply sparingly as instructed as I believe I over applied in some areas and it appeared greasy. Overall though I liked the product. It controlled the frizz, smelled nice and made my hair look shiny. I will definitely think about purchasing this in the future.

This product LOVES my curls!
Sampled

Besides smelling AMAZING, this oil has been a great boon to my curls. Using my sample, I have been applying it to my dry curls in the morning to rejuvenate them. Before, I would spritz my hair with water, but that seems drying (we have hard water out here ... AND we have a salt-based water-softener!). This oil makes my curls come out without drying them out. I have re-applied during the day, and it has not weighed my hair down. Rather, I get a lovely rush of fragrance and my curls (as if they could audibly emote) seem to squeal with delight at having yet another application of this soothing product.

Too small of a sample to be effective
Sampled

I couldn't really tell if this would be effective because I have a lot of hair. But, my curly hair runs on the greasy side so hair oil isn't exactly on my list of to do's.
