Surprisingly good for such an inexpensive product!!! Very versatile. Yes it's not pure argan oil and has some silicones in it, but I have used it sparingly on wet and dry hair with very nice results. It says you can even add some to your conditioner, so I might have to try that too.
i used to use Moroccan oil and some pure argon oil. i love this product but it does have silicons in it and as such it is not a pure oil. I prefer the pure argon oil as it does not weigh down my waves but for my color treated ends this is the very best. it is heavier than Moroccan oil due to the silicons in it so if you have fine to medium hair you must be careful to put very little in your hair. I mix it with water or gel. i bought it on sale for 3$ so i am super duper happy
I bought this product based on the positive reviews here. While it may be cheap, this is not a good serum for my fine, thin hair; a tiny drop made my hair flat and greasy. The only serum my hair can handle without going flat is Moroccanoil.
I have lots & lots of fine shoulder-length hair. I have natural volume, natural waves, and I don't dye or highlight my hair, so that's natural also. It's a head of hair that many women would pine for. Unfortunately, my hair frizzes, not a little but a lot, and it needs styling to keep it in shape. I've always been a minimalist when it comes to my hair - little product, little heat, little styling, little whatever. I like a natural look, not an over-processed or over-made-up look, and I don't like to spend a lot of time on my hair. Achieving that look with minimal time & effort is sometimes difficult & tricky, but that's always been my goal ... since I was a teen.
My go-to treatments have been Biosilk Serum, a Frieda smoother and Sebastian Potion 9. I have rotated through those products for too many years to count. Unfortunately, in spite of deep conditioning hair treatments, my hair started to become unmanageable and frizzy in the last few months, and my hair care & styling routine was no longer working. I attribute this to a combination of hard water build-up and heat damage from new tools that replaced a decade-old combination blower & iron tool that finally went kaput. After going through 3 different tools to replace the original, none of which was working with my hair, I knew I needed a radical change. I swapped out my entire hair care routine -- all new products, tools and techniques. After reading many reviews & comparing prices, I decided to give Moroccan Oil a try as a finishing serum, and I chose this Garnier Fructise product over the name-brand original oil.
This is a great product that creates sleek, shiny hair. As part of my routine, I apply it to clean damp hair, in little bits from the bottom up. I let my hair air dry, and then I use jumbo hot rollers to get sleek hair that resembles a professional blowout. My natural, middle-age hair has amazing shine and highlights, which I attribute to this oil when used with the hot rollers. I get a great look with minimal effort. And no frizzies.
I usually go 3 days between shampoos, and my hair still looks sleek & shiny on day 3. Unfortunately, my hair seems to be a bit weighed down by day 3 when I use this oil. I don't think I'm using too much product - in fact, I'm using very little because my hair is so fine, even if there is lots of it. So, I think my next step is to try a dry shampoo - I think that just might rectify the issue with third day hair.
Super, super product! Such a great product for a little dough. Unfortunately, it smells like coconut & suntan oil - I could do without that but for the price I'll let that go. Otherwise I'm quite pleased and will purchase again.
I absolutely love love love this on my coarse curly hair. My thirsty dry hair just sucks it up, leaving my hair soft and manageable. I used to straight iron my unmanagable hair, now I add a quarter size right after shampooing and let it dry naturally. I love my curly hair again! Thank you, Garnier!
I was a Moroccan Oil die-hard until I tried this brand in a pinch. It gives the exact same results, and costs 5 bucks Canadian. What's not to love?
Been using this for about three months and I really like it, I'm surprised that something so cheap actually works, I alternate this with my Proclaim oil and my Agadir oil. I use this when I am air drying and does a good job, I prefer Agadir over Proclaim or Garnier Fructis.
I like to straighten my fine, dry, curly hair. I used very little of this and it didn't help with frizz AND made it look oily. I had to wash the heck out of my hair to get it out. And hated the smell, which I think is comparable to men's cologne, and very strong.
This product works, it does exactly what the name says- makes hair sleek and shiny. This is how effective it is: I tend to apply more product to my ends than my roots, well with this product I can literally see the difference when I do that. My ends wind up super-smooth and swingy while my roots still remain a bit frizzy. And I love the fact that it's dirt cheap, incredible value for the price! However, only 4 lippies because I think CHI Silk Infusion beats this product by a mile (but it costs a lot more). Kerastase Elixir Ultime too. I can see myself reaching for this in the future and eventually using up the whole bottle. Excellent drugstore product (gotta love those) but it's not HG.
HG for me. This has transformed my hair physically as well as my emotional messed up relationship with it. I have a bit of an OCD issue and am constantly trying to smooth every single strand. It's actually a real problem, like a freakin' drug addiction. Anyways, my hair is fine and very thin due to all the tugging, pulling and smoothing that I've done since birth (grabbing at my mom's hair until I grew my own). Amazingly tho, using this hair oil softens and smooths my hair so much that I don't feel the need to do it manually... not as much anyways. It's a big step for me and my hair looks so much better and healthier! It's dirt cheap too. I haven't had an issue with using too much and looking like a grease ball which is usually the case with all other serums and oils I've tried. This stuff is perfect.
