Nice, but not for fine hair
Sampled

I have soft, fine wavy hair and this product weighed my hair down and made it look very stringy. I can see this being great for people with thick,curly hair though!

Unappealling
Sampled

Disappointed in this product because although it functions well, it leaves a really unpleasant scent in my hair that lasts all day.

Decent oil, small sample
Sampled

I liked the idea of this product, but due to the side of the sample in my Birchbox, I can't say for 100% certainty as to how it works. I had to use it on the ends of my hair and leave it at that. It made them soft, so I guess that's good right?

Packaging confused me at first
Sampled

The packaging on this was a little weird, because I thought it might be a spray, only to end up with a glob of oil on my shirt. After I figured it out, though, it wasn't too bad. One squirt was enough for my mid-shoulder length, thick hair, and it did help my hair feel really soft.

Hair oil
Sampled

This is an amazing quality product even for a sample. I found that it made my hair more oily but I already have oily hair.

Silky smooth hair
Sampled

It makes my hair silky smooth without being overly greasy. I wasnt too crazy about the smell but it's tolerable.

Eh.

First off I want to say BRAVO to Birchbox for the sample size!!!! I have long, thick, curly hair, and its really hard to "sample" some products because theres usually not enough to distribute through my hair. Not with this!! Perfectly sized sample, I still have leftover that I'm using. Now for the product review, I was so excited when I saw this in my box because I love hair oils, but this one didn't seem to improve my hair any ): and the smell was not very pleasant, overall I was not impressed and will not be purchasing unless on big time sale somewhere

Too heavy
Sampled

This product kept my style in place (sort of) but also made my hair feel dirty (too oily/ heavy). It really did not work for me, and I have dry to normal hair. The product size is really good though - plenty of uses (for someone else).

could be a good product for me, sample too small
Sampled

I think this is a nice company and could be a good product for my hair. However, the sample was just too small for me to tell. I didn't like the packaging and it was hard to get the product out. I think I only got a couple uses out of it...
