Stick to makeup

This brand needs to stick to making makeup and not hair products. I don't like this oil nor the cream to oil that is in this same line. It made my hair feel kinky. I love the brand but the hair line is the pits.

Not for me
Sampled

I have very thick hair, and it usually dries out since I put so much heat in it to keep it straight. I used this product after receiving it in my box. It did nothing for my hair. I was very disappointed.

Trash
Purchased

Ok, not that bad but I feel like giving it to a friend. Maybe they'll like it better than I do. I bought this after sampling the shampoo that I loved. The Shampoo was out of stock so i figured this was the next best thing. Nope. It just didn't seem to do anything. Disappointed and now it's just taking up space in my bathroom.

Not for My Type of Hair
Sampled

For my hair texture (which is relaxed african american hair) it provide no extra moisture. It didn't dry out my hair, but it didn't help it feel moisturized either.

I have oily hair

I was shocked that birchbox would send me a oil for my hair when I have oily hair. I'm not happy. I can't even use the product without looking disgusting.

My hair is too fine and flat to risk making it worse with oil.

Oil is oil

I don't see anything impressive about this oil. Oil is oil, I usually use a sheen. It seems to lubricate the scalp.

Disappointed

I was excited to use this product because my ends tend to get dry and frizzy. I didn't work well at all. The fragrance is great! For the price of this product I didn't see good enough results to purchase in the future

ShuUeruma!

I was really hoping i would like this product as i am in search of one like it. Unfortunately, i did not. The sample came in a little vial like a perfume sample….not cool…..It does smell good though….:) In the meantime, i am still on the look out for a very good protective oil.

Just OK
Purchased

I thought it was very heavy, so only use a little at a time. I was not impressed with the scent. For the price, I would not by again.
