WOW.

I have the type of greasy fine hair that if I don't wash it at least once a day, I look homeless. That being said, I also highlight heavily - because who doesn't want to be a blonde? :)

I had gotten a sample of the Love Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner in a previous Box, and love love loved it. I loved it so much that I ordered the Smoothing kit, complete with the Oil. I figured hey, freshly bleached hair needs some love - right? RIGHT!

This oil is a miracle worker! I can use it on my hair, and it absolutely does not cause excessive grease (like most oils do). In fact, sometimes my hair looks ok on the second day (okok let's not push it, I also found a decent dry shampoo). My colorist actually said that my hair (especially my ends) looked fantastic at my last appointment!

I love love love love love this oil!

Obsessed with this!
SampledPurchased

I received this back in June in my box. I was skeptic at first because I've tried other oily treatments for styling my curly hair but this one works. It smells wonderful and does not weigh my curls down, my hair absorbs the oil and does not leave it oily. I also noticed how soft it made my hands, so I started using it on my legs and arms. It's great for dry skin. Try some on your legs after you have shaved and it makes them so soft and hydrated. The only thing I don't like is the spray nozzle, it makes the oil come out in a glob sort of way. I am guessing due to the viscosity of the oil it was their only solution.

I love the way this product leaves my hair super shiny and frizz free. I have very curly hair and it also gives it a nice moisture boost. Thanks for letting me try this.

Liked this product. A little goes a long way, so I would suggest using sparingly or else you may end up with greasy hair. Don't like the pump though.

Great product

I really love what this product did for my hair. I have curly hair and live in a humid climate, so I'm always on the lookout for good hair serums. I applied this to wet hair and had light, springy curls. It wasn't so heavy that it weighed my hair down or made it greasy. My one qualm is the smell. I don't know how to describe it, but it's almost chemical.

This product wasn't for me, didn't work at all. I have tight curly hair, my hair just laughed at this.

So good, so smooth

One of my favorite products right now. I loved the big sample size as well. Very nice! Smells kind of chemically but it does a great job keeping my hair under control in humidity and does not make your hair oily. Little goes a long way.

The scent is incredible and the effect on my curls is just perfect!! It also doesn't make my skin break out where it touches, and that is a BIG deal! A+ from me!

Does its job well

I am a big fan of hair oils for their moisturizing capabilities. This product was a nice weight and absorbed well, but I thought the smell was just ok. I have other products that I like more that have a slightly more feminine fragrance.
