Captain Blankenship Mermaid Mane Hair Oil

Mermaids have always held a certain allure (hey, they could be real!), so when we heard about this Mermaid Hair Oil, our visions of flowing, lustrous mermaid-esque hair were more than enough motivation to try it. With just a few drops, the oil adds luster and moisture to your hair, leaving you with soft, silky tresses that feel divine with a smell even better.

Too heavy
Purchased

I love hair oil but have gone through more products that don't work for me than ones that do. This one is too thick even on my damp hair and just didn't do anything special...no extra shine or softness. Made my hair look like. Nice scent and love the name, it just wasn't effective.

Nice overall
Purchased

This stuff smells amazing! It's so earthy and natural, and it made my hair smell great all day. However, that was the only effect I can see. It didn't have much impact on the health of my hair, nor did it make my hair shinier or silkier. I have super thick hair, so maybe I just haven't been using enough, but I'm not in love with the product.

Didn't really help with smoothing
Purchased

This product smells great but it didn't really help with smoothing fly aways like I had hoped it would. I was afraid to apply too much and cause my hair to look oily.

Hydrates, but be careful
Purchased

A little goes a long way with this product. Too much makes your hair look greasy... But it does help me tame my summer mane. I don't think I'd order it again, but it does a decent job.

Works well and smells heavenly
Purchased

I love this hair oil, it works well, is hydrating and smells heavenly- like rosemary. Some people might not like the more herb-y smell, but I find it refreshing! I only gave it four stars because you have to be very careful to not be too heavy handed with this product. I use two drops for my long hair and if I don't distribute it enough my hair quickly turns oily. This also means the product lasts a long time though, so some might not see this as negative, just beware when you're experimenting!

A little goes a long way
Purchased

I tend to get really dry, split ends in the winter. I haven't changed my hair care routine at all other than adding this product and I have noticed significant improvement. The only issue is that application is almost an exact science. You want to make sure the get the exactly perfect amount for your hair. It takes some trial and error to get right, but once you do it is perfect.

great product, but be sparse with use!
Purchased

Smells amazing! I would use just a few drops on your ends, as a little seems to go a long way. If you use to much, it can end up making the ends of your hair look a little greasy.

O Captain
Purchased

A little really does go a long way. It smells so good that I just wanted it all over my hair, and then I was a greasepit. So, don't do that. A friend rec'd this and I wasn't disappointed. It keeps my hair ends soft and smooth, and I always get compliments on how good I smell. Thanks, Cap'n!

A+ for organic ingredients
Purchased

I prefer a more natural approach when it comes to the products I use on my hair. The Mermaid Mane Hair Oil gets an A+ for using organic ingredients! The natural oils help my ends stay hydrated, makes my hair soft and brings out its natural shine!
