In Love!!

I am a hair stylist and by far this product is great. I have used many hair oils and serums, but so far not many products are as light weight. The feel is amazing too, I only started using it this week, and I am totally IN LOVE.

Hair Oil

This is a nice oil. Doesn't weigh your hair down. Can't tell from the small sample if it's "liquid gold."

Sleek, sexy hair
Sampled

This delicately scented oil left my hair shiny and flyaway free. I kept my sample in my purse so I could do quick hair touchups during the day. I'm on the waitlist to purchase the full size product.

WOW - a treat for relaxed hair!
Sampled

I used just a drop on my shoulder length bob, and it made my hair feel so soft, smooth and did not weigh it down. I have relaxed hair, which is thinning as I get older, so I'm always looking for products which moisturize without feeling "oily". I washed and conditioned my hair as usual, and applied this product before I used my flat iron. This product is perfect, and a good deal in terms of price since I don't have to use much. I plan to buy when it's back in stock.

Great for fine hair

I received a sample of this oil in my monthly birchbox. It was amazing for my fine and limp hair. I would definitely reccomend this to people with fine and occasionally dry/limp hair.

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.

Seriously, who knew pure bliss came in a bottle? I have thick asian hair and often times it's brittle esp. during winter. I recently bought the full sized bottle of this baby and it has changed my life (slight exaggeration)! After a couple pumps and slather, my hair feels renewed and healthy again. Granted, it comes at a cost. The price is very steep but I believe it's an investment.... in beautiful silk-like hair!!

The most incredible product EVER
Purchased

This is the best hair product I have ever used. It changed my hair, it changed my hair routine, and basically changed my life. It makes your hair soft and luscious and you only need a little drop.

Absolute necessity!

This is the best hair care line I have ever tried. I have pretty "basic" and low maintenance hair, and I never thought I needed any "help" from products. I was wrong! This has completely taken my hair from okay to AMAZING! Worth every penny!
