OROFLUIDO Elixir

When it comes to evaluating new hair care products, we look for the three S’s: soft, shiny, strong. This fragrant serum delivers all three, making it one of our new favorites. Incidentally, since we’re also suckers for that other big S, scent, we can’t get enough of the amber and vanilla notes that drift up every time we flip our hair.

Shiny hair but no better than other similar products
Purchased

Smells great and makes my hair shiny but does nothing more than other shine enhancing or glazing products I have tried in the past. Does not really seem moisturizing to me.

Wish it did more than smell good!

I'll admit that I find the scent of this oil to be irresistible. After emptying the sample from my Birchbox, I kept the tiny bottle just to sniff the wonderful aroma occasionally. But, as Cosmetic Cop Paula Begoun says, "Fragrance isn't skin care" (or hair care, or any other kind of beauty care) - it's just olfactory pleasure. The aromatic loveliness of this oil doesn't outweigh the fact that it did nothing for my baby-fine hair except make it a little damp for awhile. It certainly didn't settle flyaways, which is what I hoped to achieve, or make it shinier (except for the temporary dampness). I can't justify buying or using it just because it smells nice, especially if something else might work better but possibly conflict with the Orofluido Elixir. If this product happens to work for your hair (or you don't mind paying for its pleasant scent), enjoy!

Really great value
Purchased

I really like Orofluido - the smell, the way it makes my hair feel after applying. Plus the amount of product you get for the price is fantastic. My only complaint is that after a couple of months, the oils started to separate in the bottle and even after shaking they won't combine.

smells wonderful
Purchased

this product to me is worth buying just for the wonderful smell alone. i don't really notice much difference in my hair when i use it, but as i said i love how my hair smells after.

Smells good
Purchased

This oil smells great and I liked using it for awhile. I stopped because it has silicone in it and I know using silicone based products isn't great for curly hair.

Nice scent, decent product
Purchased

I've tried tons of hair serums and oil to try and keep my fine oily hair from having crazy fly-aways or being full of static. This is the latest attempt. The elixir has a great scent - very subtle - but it is less effective than the cheaper argan oil blends I've used in the past. Take my advice - stick with the Moroccanoil brand - it's the first I ever tried and best one I've used.

Made my hair frizzy
Purchased

Did not work well for my type of fine, curly, hair. It made my hair frizzy, and slightly weighed down. The smell is nice, though.

Smells amazing, feels amazing- use it fast
Purchased

This stuff is amazing and I instantly fell in love with it. The only reason that i give it only 3 stars is because after two or three months, it got stale in the bottle and just smelled like old oil. I would recommend this only if you plan to use a generous amount and quickly, it really is a lovely product, but with a very limited shelf life when opened.

good smell, but thats about it.

this product wasn't absorbed, it just coated my hair like limp grease even though it was used barely. I have been using regular Moroccan oil, and it is hands down a better product

Nice oil but maybe not liquid gold.
Purchased

I am on the band wagon with hair serums. But... I like the quality of this oil but don't feel that the 'silk and shine' is as rich and lasting as with other similar products. I have only used it on dry hair it might be more effective when used right out of the shower. It's worth a try. The fragrance is nice.
