Really nice oil

I have needed some hair oil and this could have not come at a better time. The oils had a nice light feel. It really helped my split ends. Far less split end frizz.

Way too expensive

I know you have to pay for quality, but this is a price I won't pay! Good product, just too expensive

Not completely necessary for me.

I have oily skin and oily hair, so I try to avoid oils of any kind. With that said, this does a great job of smoothing frizzy ends.

Meh

It's not really worth the money, I have had better smoothing products for half the cost.

A Non-Greasy Hair Oil

My hair is fine and gets greasy quickly, so receiving a hair oil in my BirchBox made me skeptical. However, this is a great product. After I shower I put this on the ends of my hair and they are soft, silky and it smells fabulous. I will definitely buy the full size when my sample is gone.

Nice product

I have used products similar to this one, but I did not find it to be any better than other ones that I have used that are less expensive. The smell was nice and it did make my hair soft.

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

Different Packaging

The actual product itself was amazing. My otherwise dry hair looked very healthy and felt smooth. The only drawback to this product was the sample packaging. The top was extremely difficult to remove and resulted in quite a bit of the product to spill over.

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.
