Smells nice

I have very thin hair and don't normally use oily products in my hair but this did not seam to weigh it down or leave it more greasy. Left it with a shine but not greasy.

Wish an oil would work

Unfortunately, yet another hair oil that does absolutely nothing for me. I don't understand them! They either weigh my hair down or don't seem to have any effect at all. I have yet to find one that reduces frizz (some cause more) or leave a sheen on my hair. I had big hopes for this product bc I love Shu Uemura, but nothing special.

Smooth Hair Days

I have tried many hair oils to protect my long, colored treated hair. This product has kept my hair smooth for days without become oily looking. In TN heat I need something to control frizz and this is it!

Nice..smells great.

The sample was a great size - I got at least four uses. I was afraid it would make my hair greasy but it only made it soft and less fly-away. It smells wonderful too. With my hairstyle it didn't help as a styling product but with people who flat iron I think it would be especially useful.

Smells good, smoothes

I seem to get a lot of sample of this type of product and this one was alright but didn't really stand out from any of the others ive tried. I will stick to my regular product. I have a lot of hair I feel like the sample size is never enough to get much of a trial out of it.

Great

Liked it so far but the sample ended to be larger since my Daughter's and Myself have very thick hair

Protective Oil

This definitely smoothed my hair, but not enough to justify the price.

I don't love it
Sampled

For the price I don't think it did anything that spectacular for my hair. It was nice. The smell was nice. I will keep using my sample. What does need to be rethought is the packaging of the sample. It is too hard to open and too easy to spill.
