Not particularly helpful
Sampled

I wasn't particularly impressed with this sample. If I used more than one pump, my hair was very greasy, but I couldn't really tell any positive impact from using it. I'm not sure what it's supposed to do, but it didn't do it for me.

Smell is off
Sampled

This oil might be great for some people, I did like the texture and it kept frizz at bay in my hair. However, and it's A BIG however, I could not deal with the smell. I am pretty sensitive to smells and recalling memories based on scent, and this smelled exactly like cat little I used to use when I had cats. It smell like the clean little when I would first put it in the box, but still, smelling that on my hair all day drove me crazy. I will not be purchasing because of the scent and threw away the sample after only using it once.

I have thin hair, even when using a small amount, it left my hair way too greasy.

To perfumy
Sampled

I really like Davines products, but this line was very perfume scented. The texture of the oil was great, but I didn't see any noticeable impact on my hair.

Frizz free but overly fragranced
Sampled

I received the entire Davine's suite of products in my sample box, so I tried the shampoo, conditioner, and oil together. Unfortunately the scent is a bit strong for me although I like that it is not overly floral/feminine. It seems like a good product line if you are sharing hair products with a gent. The oil does have a good quality, but did not detangle my hair as well as the products I already own.

Light Oil, Strong Fragrance
Sampled

The Davines hair oil has a really nice, light consistency that didn't seem to weigh down my hair. It helped a little with frizz and made the ends shiny. I've reviewed other Davines products and they all have had a strong, powdery smell, so be aware of that if you plan on trying this product. I wouldn't recommend it if you're sensitive to fragrance.

Effective, But Greasy
Sampled

This product worked wonders for my hair. It got rid of all my frizz. The only problem is it made my hair greasy, and I felt self-conscious about it all day.

I loved the smell but it did leave my hair a little greasy. I only put it on the ends but it's super thick and just didn't work well on my fine hair.

Nice, but too strongly scented
Sampled

I liked this product, and I liked the scent, but it's too heavily scented. In combination with the OI shampoo, it's a bit overpowering.

Great, just not for me
Sampled

This is very luxe, I just have super thin hair that gets weighed down easily. This would be perfect for someone with thick or very dry hair, it is so smooth and lovely.
