I loved this nourishing protective oil
Sampled

It does the job and it has a very nice scent to it. Doesn't make your hair feel greasy. I do recommend this product to everybody.

Love it!

It works like one of my leave-ins and I use like 1/8th of product compared to what I use for conditioner

Still Frizzy

I love the feel of this product and it does make my hair feel softer and silkier, but visually I can still see the frizz that I'm trying to get rid of. This is a nice hair oil, but it just isn't working for me.

I liked it

This was nice for my summer-fried hair and has a nice, light scent.

Not for me

I have thin fine hair and have found that when I use hair oil, my hair gets really greasy fast. Maybe if I had thicker hair it would work better. It's not a bad product, just not for me.

Luxurious

This is definitely a high end hair product. The glass vial made it difficult to sample much of the product, but it did make my hair feel very soft and shiny.

Not for me

I received this in my May box. It says it's for dry hair and mine tends to be on the oily side. I tried it just to say I did but I won't be buying this in the future. The last thing my greasy head needs is more oil!

Nice product, poor packaging

I was worried about spilling it everywhere when I opened the little bottle, but the oil was nice and non greasy.

Great smell, seems to work well

I loved the smell and consistency of this oil. I really only had enough in the sample to try it a couple times. Which I suppose is ok. I like to put it on my hair at night as a leave in conditioner, since my hair is pretty fine and I don't use hair oil for styling. In the morning my hair did feel nice and conditioned. Would have been nice to maybe use it a few more times but I understand it was just a sample.
