makes my hair a bit TOO oily
Sampled

I was excited about this, because of the "anti-frizz" info - and it does just that. But, even when using a "small amount" and "focusing on the ends" as the directions said, I felt TOO oily. That's fine if I'm not needing to get ready to go right away, but this is NOT for last minute type use. Since my hair is in good shape, this product is not worth it to me. I understand anti-aging, but I use other products that do the same without making me look greasy for 45 minutes.

okay
Sampled

I've used hair oils almost my entire life (comes with being Indian). I still like the old fashioned almond or coconut oils for my hair. They smell better than this one.

The product was okay but I think cheaper brands have worked better for me.

Works on Cuticles
Sampled

i have oily and fine hair. Hair oils just weigh my hair down. Since I received this product in my box I started rubbing it on my cuticles since it would not work in my hair. It moisturizes my cuticles fairly well but not that impressive.

The scent - egads!
Sampled

I tried it on damp hair then again on dry hair & both times I didn't see any difference than any other hair oil I've tried in the past or currently use.
What really got to me was the fact that my husband who never notices anything scent wise was taken aback & made the "smells bad" face.
I had gotten used to the smell until I started moving around & realized it was indeed following me. Then I was terribly self-conscious the rest of the day until I could shower again.

Nice, but definitely not natural
Sampled

Nice smell and texture, but seems like there are a lot of added ingredients for something that should be pretty "natural"..

Surprised
Sampled

I was surprised to not mind this product. I was definitely skeptical about a hair oil, considering I have thin, fine hair and I live in TX where we sweat and have tons of humidity. But it really didn't weigh my hair down and I was able to use it in place of a detangler and had success with it. That said, I don't really have a great interest in using an oil, particularly one that has this scent, so I probably would not buy it.

I like your hair feels but not the smell. You would only need small amount or it will leave hair greasy.

I don't get it
Sampled

I guess I just don't understand hair oil, so I don't know how much my opinion is worth. I've tried this oil on wet hair and dry hair, and I just don't notice anything. No extra shine or softness. I've tried other hair oils too and had the same experience.

Too much for fine hair
Sampled

I don't have issues with frizz and the last thing my hair needs is more oil, so I was skeptical when I received this in my box. I tried it out according to the directions and sure enough, way too heavy for my fine hair. The scent is also pretty overpowering.
