decent hair oil

I'm used to V05 for hot oil treatments and Moroccanoil as a styling oil. I feel that this was too thick for hot oil treatments (I needed a good amount to coat my hair well), and I am pretty loyal to Moroccanoil as styling oil. But this is a perfectly acceptable oil and I like the smell. It would be my second choice if anything happened to my Moroccanoil!

Good

It was good, I don't really use this type of thing in my hair, but it was great to try out.

Shiny Hair
Sampled

I love what this does for my hair! It makes it so smooth and shiny. I'm not sure if I'll buy it because it's quite expensive.

kerastase never disappoints!
Sampled

I have medium length, fine, highlighted hair and it loved this product. It makes my hair so soft and smells AMAZING. The price tag is a bummer, but I am going to purchase it anyway because a little goes a long way...

Just ok...

This product works ok for smoothing out frizz, but I think Moroccan oil works much better - not planning to purchase this one...

Awesome Hair Product
Sampled

This product was awesome. My hair was so soft, and even when I used it without blow drying, my very thick and coarse hair came out kitten soft! I can't wait to buy it and use it all the time!

not bad

Usually use another brand of hair oil, but was happy to get the sample because I'd wanted to try Kerastase products for a while. On its own pre-blow dry I didn't notice much difference from other oils/serums. However, when added to a little Kerastase Nectar Thermique, left my hair noticeably silky. The best part of this combo, though, is that it's relatively lightweight and doesn't seem to attract dirt as quickly as other products (a big deal when you only shampoo a couple times a week). I also use a little bit as a smoother after the flat iron but as another reviewer has mentioned, it doesn't help with static/flyaways.

Great except for the smell
Sampled

I really wanted to love this. It works well on my hair and smells great coming out of the bottle. Unfortunately, once it's in my hair the smell morphs into a weird burnt hair sort of smell. Maybe it's just me?
