I don't love this as much as I should
Purchased

I think this is a lovely oil- I still like Moroccan Hair oil better and it is far less expensive. I had high hopes for this as I love the brand, but I won't be buying it again. Makes my hair a bit greasy too.

Smells good, smoothes

I seem to get a lot of sample of this type of product and this one was alright but didn't really stand out from any of the others ive tried. I will stick to my regular product. I have a lot of hair I feel like the sample size is never enough to get much of a trial out of it.

Great

Liked it so far but the sample ended to be larger since my Daughter's and Myself have very thick hair

Great Product

I had a chance to try the product on saturday and it worked great! I curled my hair that day and it was humid and the oil kept it from getting frizzy. I will definitely be purchasing this product in the future.

Love this oil

THe only thing I didn't like was that I had to pry the top off to use it. The sample package could be easier to open.

Did not like

I use different hair oils (suave, l'oreal etc) all the time so I was excited for this one because it wasn't a drug store brand so I had high hopes for it. Unfortunately it left my hair stringy looking and feeling like straw. I used it multiple times, varying how much I used, how I styled my hair etc and every time I didn't like it. Not worth the money.

Good hair oil

I liked this hair oil. It left my fine, color-treated hair very soft. My only issue with it is the price. I use a similar product from a different brand which is much more economical.
