Just OK

It works fine as long as you get the right amount on your hair. I like how soft my hair feels but you have to be very careful about how much you use or you will end up with greasy hair. I also hate the packaging for the sample.I ended up spilling some while trying to put the cap back on.

Not bad

Not typically a hair oil person, I have naturally oily hair. But if I skip the conditioner and use this instead, it makes my hair super soft! I like it better than other hair oils I've tried.

Love At First Use!
Purchased

If you are reading this review, then just stop right here and buy this product already. I am not easily impressed by products, but this was love at first use. It left my hair silky smooth, noticeably less frizz and just all around nourished. After shampooing, my hair is still silky smooth. Love this as both pre-shampoo treatment and leave in conditioner. I might have to throw out all my other leave-in hair products now. Well worth the price.

If the actress Ashley Madekwe (girl from Revenge) says its good, it must be good because she is gorgeous.

smooth finish

This oil provides a smooth and shiny finsih for straight hair. It also calmed the frizzies on my curly hair when I let it air dry.

not great

I have another much cheaper oil that I like better. This one just isn't worth it for me.

It was ok

Just okay for me smells pretty good sample was too tiny I have long hair I need more product to be able to sample from. It didn't do much for my frizzy curly hair

Not for Me

This stuff turned my curly hair into a frizz ball. It just didn't work for me. I love hair serums just not this one.

Nice to have.

It is lightweight and effectively smooths out my hair.

Didn't do much

Didn't do much for me, especially considering how expensive it is. Maybe it just wasn't meant for my hair type.
