Smells amazing!

I probably overuse this product because it smells so good. It doesn't weigh my hair down so I can use it daily.

Best hair oil available

I have blonde, color-treated hair. Unfortunately, I do need to wash it every other day. On the days I wash it, I apply two pumps (direx say one, but I use two) from mid-shaft to ends and let hair air dry. My hair is incredibly soft and smooth once dry. The oil penetrates well. Smell is lovely, but not intense. Bottle lasts quite some time, so I don't get too upset over the price. This is one hair product that I've always come back to.

Good treatment for hair
Purchased

I have mid-length hair and use one pump for leave-in treatment. It doesn't weight down or make my greasy at all. I sometimes use it as over night treatment.

Pros and Cons...

I have very thick unmanageable hair, and usually need a lot of product. Pro...this product works very well, but be warned, it only takes a small amount to go a very long way, so it's also a budget in that regard. Con...if you use too much, you'll have to re-wash your hair and start all over again (learned the hard way)

Love it

This product makes my hair so soft and gets rid of the frizz. I received it in the vanity affair box. I really feel it works better than typical hair oils for my fine wavy hair. A little goes a long way.

One of the best!

This is one of the best hair oils I've ever used. It did not leave a buid-up on my hair or weigh it down. I love it!!

Just buy it, you wont be sorry.

This is a miracle in a bottle. Seriously. My coarse hair was transformed to smooth and sleek strands without use of a hair dryer or flat iron. It's the product you didn't know you needed until you have it.

Great in the winter
Purchased

I purchased this product almost a year ago, and I still have a good amount left to use this winter. It's great for keeping hair healthy during the winter months. I work the oil into the ends of my hair, and everything looks so much livelier and healthier. I would recommend this product to keep hair healthy and moisturized during the dry winter months.

Finally, shiny rich people hair!
Sampled

All my life I have coveted the "shiny rich people" hair I see on commercials and every once in a while on a real human being and not a model/ actress. I have mousy blond/brown hair that is fine, limp, sometimes wavy and all the time frizzy in the humidity. Not any more. This oil ( and just a dab) changed it all. Smells amazing, smoothes frizz and flyaways, givesu hair the light but sleek bounce. So worth the money and one container will last more than a year. LOVE this.

Pretty Much Liquid Gold
Sampled

This definitely gives a polished, sleek look. I like applying it when my hair is wet and then blow drying and styling. It takes away frizz, too!
