I washed my hair, then sprayed "liberally" per the directions. I blow dried my hair, and turned out awful. It smelled good, but it was quite oily - I nearly re-washed my hair it was so bad! Oddly, despite the oil, the next day, my hair was dry and brittle, and not very shiny (which I might not blame on the product as the weather also got quite a bit colder). In any case, I really wanted this to have more "benefits". A bit disappointing.
