Fabulous Product
Purchased

This oil really is the best one I've tried. It's better than Moroccanoil and either one of Ojon's oils (which are both good). It makes my hair shiny and soft, but my favorite thing is that it controls frizz. I live in a very hot and humid climate. My thick but straight hair usually has crazy pieces everywhere when I've been outside for more than 20 minutes if it's hotter than 80 degrees. Now that I use this product, I don't really have that problem anymore...ever. I went to an outdoor concert on one of the hottest days in August and danced and got super sweaty, yet my hair still looked great. Some of the reviews talk about using this oil on dry hair, but I haven't tried that. I use a full pump plus a half pump on towel-dried hair right before I blow dry. Around my house, we refer to this stuff as "magic oil!"

Based on the reviews and price, I was expecting this to be better. I think it works as well as many mid-range oils. It definitely smells great, but not sure if I'd repurchase solely for scent.

Holy Grail!
Purchased

I love this product more than any other hair product I have tried....and believe me, I have tried a lot. I have used a bunch of hair oils and none compare to this. I think this product works best on dry hair. I like to work it through my hair before I flat iron it. My hair is instantly more silky and shiny. It smells like heaven as well!

It completely rocks out my blonde hair!!! My hair looks and feels amazing!! It's great for blowing out and also I add it to dry hair next day for added shine. Although I'm wondering if it has anything to do with breakouts, when I use it I seem to break out more...

Liquid Gold - Perfect description
Purchased

LOVE this product. It's fabulous for smoothing frizz and flyaways before and after straightening (flat iron). My hair is long and thick, so this is a little pricey for how much I use, but if money was no object - I'd use it always!

Best oil on the market
Purchased

This stuff will last you forever and make scraggly ends look soft and healthy in a matter of seconds. Here's a little secret: Use a bit of this oil on hair that has been doused with hairspray for an updo and it will instantly take the hair from a kinky greasy mess to unbelievably soft.

made my hair flat. Did smooth down the fly aways. However, my hair did not have any life. Find the Fekkai creams better.

Incredible product that has actually changed the texture of my dry,coarse hair. I have spent a fortune on high end products for my thick,coarse hair and the Essence Absolue is the absolute best.Pricy but the bottles last eight months.Finest hair oil .
