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!

Lifesaver.
Purchased

I am not a fan of oils but this oil leaves no trace and really softens the hair. I have coarse and thin hair and it's just enough not to weigh it down.

Okay

It wasn't great, it was okay. I don't plan on buying this product. I have products that are just as good.

Eh?

What can I say? I read the reviews. Ordered the product. Waited in anticipation and then...nothing. I'm underwhelmed. Pros: It has a nice scent. Cons: It's heavy. I have a lot of hair but it is very fine in texture. This weighed it down and totally made my styling fall flat...and greasy. I've found its best use for me as an overnight treatment. And even then the results have not warranted to price tag. I've been using it on my legs to at least get my moneys worth.

Lovely!

I started using this after my hair texture and condition changed after having kids. It smells lovely and works very well without being too heavy. I even use a drop on my daughter's hair to tame the tangles and curls. Definitely a good purchase and worth the price.

Worth it!
Purchased

This product is amazing. It has a wonderful scent. It helped to de-frizz and soften my hair. I imagine it will last a long time as I've only needed to use a very small amount each day.

Nongreasy hair oil
Purchased

I love using hair oil - this one keeps the hair really moisturized without looking greasy -- which is really hard for an oil to do. However, if my ends are really dry, this doesn't help as much (as say coconut oil). Also, it smells really nice so I always run my hands through my hair with a little of this every day.
