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.

If only the smell lingered in my hair days later..
Sampled

The timing of this sample was perfect! I just ran out of my Moroccan hair oil the week prior and was considering trying a new brand.

The smell is even better than the Moroccan oil (I love vanilla scents), and the texture is just as thick so you don't need much at all. I'm a sucker for good marketing and had never heard of this brand. After researching the brand and product myself..I'm hooked! Instead of just Argan oil the Orofluido is made of three different oils! The Cyperus oil has wonderful restorative benefits for your hair. With a price point of $29.99 for 3.4 oz..it's also cheaper than Moroccan oil with more benefits!

I used the oil for two weeks before writing this review. After washing my hair and while it's still wet, I apply a dime size amount of the oil to the ends of my hair and work up to about an three inches from the root. The oil absorbed quickly and after blow drying I noticed the hair wasn't weighed down at all. My hair was shiny, had less frizz, and a much faster drying time. The only con is that the wonderful smell doesn't last. I can't comment on whether or not I noticed a dramatic change in the condition of my hair, because my hair is overall pretty healthy.

After being introduced to hair oils two years ago I will never stop using them! This is definitely one I would recommend every woman try at least once.

Nice product

Doesn't leave hair oily. Smells great. Only need to use a small amount. Am still on the fence about purchasing.

Meh
Sampled

This oil smells divine! It is the first thing that I noticed, and the second is that it is a bit thicker than I had expected. Before this, I had been using the Shu Uemura Essence Absolue and really liked it, so that is my comparison product. The Elixer is definitely heavier and I have to use more of it to feel like my hair is getting it - I do have a lot of hair so take that for what it is worth.

The end result when I look at my hair and how the flyaways decrease or how it changes how my wet hair dries is okay, but I find that I prefer the Shu Uemura product more as it does more for my curly and frizzy hair.

a little strong

The scent is very cloying and I could smell it all day- which would be great if I had enjoyed the scent! It could just be my pregnancy nose, but I prefer something a little lighter on the vanilla.

Smells so good

This serum smells wonderful. It is very thick, so you don't need much to make a huge impact. I think that it left my hair a little greasy, but I still really liked the product.

Not for every hairstyle
Sampled

The smell is amazing; however, I found that my hair seemed "too soft" after using it. This product is best used by women with straighter hairstyles. Anything other than poker straight may be disappointed in resulting hair texture.

Very hard to read the instructions on the product. I had to come to the website to get the application instructions

Directions please

I was very exited to get this hair treatment. Although the sample is cute and smells great, it would really be nice to know how to use it. It included no directions. Do you heat? Do you apply to hair and leave in? do you rinse it out? Do you shampoo after use? Apply to wet hair? I just dont know.

I got this in my October box (what shows up in my account in October is not what I got at all). I really do not like this product - even when used sparingly, it just makes my hair look greasy.

It made my hair soft and manageable, which I liked a lot. It added a shine that looked natural, and didn't look oily at all. However, I found the product to leave its yellowish residue on my hands and my hair was very weighed down and lifeless by the end of the day.
