I have naturally curly hair. And I could not wait to try this item after reading reviews about how soft it would make my otherwise dry and untamed locks. When the package arrived today, I took a shower, shampooed as usual, and used about a tablespoon (I have hair that comes maybe 3 inches past my shoulders) rubbed it in my palms and ran it from root to tip. Let my hair air dry for about 5 minutes and then used a diffuser. The results were not the light bouncy curls I had hoped for, yet a flat, greasy looking oil slick. I am extremely disappointed that I spent the money on this item.
