I tried this last night for the first time and it made my hair so soft and manageable it's unbelievable. I used less than suggested because i did not want my hair to look oily but it came out looking shiny and vibrant, not stringy or oily at all! I left it in my hair for the exact time it says on the bottle and i am so glad i did because i got the best results possible. I have a feeling that this bottle will last me for a very long time. I will use the styling oil about once a week to maintain soft and shiny hair!
Better than Moroccan Oil!!!
Uber nourishing, I use this on dry hair after heat styling. 3 pumps of the oil, warm it between your palms and run it through the mid-to-ends of hair. Leaves curls shiny NOT greasy, and tames frizz. It's light-weight and smells wonderful.
Packaging leaks oil a little near the pump-- but a small price to pay.
Yes! This keeps my hair healthy, and detangles, shines and gives frizz protection cheaper than Moroccanoil, doesn't smell as nice . I use a little on my wet hair and more before I curl the ends. Good suggestion from haircare board. I will buy again if it still works as nice as Moroccanoil in a month.
this stuff is amazing!!! i got this from my mother and the first time i used it, i noticed a difference. it absorbs in half a minute and leaves your hair shiny, smooth and soft!!! seriously, after i applied this, i gently brushed my damp hair and then when i touched my hair, my hand just glided through it!!!this is more pricey for a hair product, but too amazing to care for price
This is hands down the best oil I have ever used in my hair and it is worth the money and time spent looking for it in salons, from a supplier, or on Amazon. I would walk 1000 miles if it meant I could have a lifetime supply. It's that amazing.
I have dry, unmanageable, wavy hair that tends to be limp on top but poofy on the bottom half (gorgeous, I know.) After shampooing and conditioning, I towel dry my hair with a t-shirt (gentler than towel) and apply a half dime size amount to the ends just to de-tangle. I then let my hair become about 90% dry and I apply another half a dime size amount to the ends up to the mid-shaft. From here, I wrap my hair into a loose bun until completely dry, preferably overnight.
The next morning, I wake with bouncy, voluminous waves with shine. My hair has never been healthier or smoother. This is the first time I have gone out of my way to write a review for a product that I loved.
TO ALL WOMEN WITH UNRULY, DAMAGED HAIR: BUY THIS PRODUCT! Just don't buy too much or else there won't be any left for me! :)
Stay smooth <3 continued >>
Applied to damp, freshly shampooed hair, you can barely feel it, and you may think you need to add more. Not necessary! One pump for short to medium length hair, two or three maybe if you have longer or really thick hair. As hair dries, the oil just seems to soak in, leaving no greasy feel or tell-tale shine. (Unless you put on a LOT.) You're left with a smoother, healthier, frizz-free look. Hoorah! One annoying wavy patch near my temples relaxes nicely with this, enabling me to style without having to get out any irons to make it blend in. I also sometimes layer it with Joico's K-Pak leave-in liquid treatment, or the foaming Reconstructor leave-in, when I want super smoothing and de-frizzing. This almost gives the effect of having flat-ironed. Nice!
One thing I have not noticed - and was rather looking forward to - is the fast-drying effect it seems to have for most people. My hair has been heavily highlighted for so long, it may be that it's it's just too damaged.
Finally, this oil is expensive, but you use so little a bottle will last a year or more, depending on how often you use it. In the long run, it's a good deal.
Overrated. After the reviews I was disappointed. It's not that fantastic.
When I read everyone else's reviews, I couldn't wait to try this. It sounded like a match - longer, highlighted, dry, blow dried, tangley and sometimes flat ironed, older (43, really?) hair - and I've tried many, many other leave-in shine, conditioning oils. I purchased this on Ebay on Sunday and by Thursday morning was trying this out after I washed my hair. I added a squirt when my hair was half dry and then maybe a squirt more before flat ironing. You girls were right - this is great stuff and maybe becomes HG for me! It made my hair feel like normal, healthy hair. I couldn't stop touching it. The best surprise was waking up day 2 to find that my hair still really looked great - no greasy build up or kinked ends from sleeping on it. I really just brushed it a little and went to work. Pretty pleased with this! This may replace my old stand by - Redken's Smooth Down. I also like Redken's Outshine, which is more of a cream, but a great leave-in conditioner - I may try this oil with the Outshine. I've also tried Paul Mitchell Skinny Serum, Chi Silk Infusion (eh), Moroccan Oil, Biosilk Silk Therapy, AG Fast Food, Kerastase Oleo Relax (I've gotten less thrilled with this) and a host of other such products. This is a good one. I can't wait to experiment more with the amount and in conjunction with other products. I suggest trying it out!
Looking for an oil that absorbs quickly in your tresses? Joico K-Pak does just that. I have previously coated my bleached wavy frizz-prone hair with extra virgin olive oil, grapeseed oil, almond oil, castor oil (this one as a hot oil treatment, or mixed with my shampoo), and a few others like Moroccanoil Treatment which contains Argan Oil. But, Joico seems to be a perfect blend of certain oils, and is very effective as a leave-in treatment, pre-styling, and after-styling aid. Not only does it contain Argan Oil, it also has Mongongo Oil, Evening Primrose Oil, and Kukui Seed Oil -a beautiful blend that my hair drinks up. Would I buy this oil again? You better believe it. It has revived my hair from a bad hair color job, stripping out the hideous color, further bleaching, and blowouts. For the small amount that I use everyday, I don't mind the price. And I actually love the faint scent it has (which I see some others here hate). Oh, one more note, if you don't like silicones, than don't try this product cause it does contain it. I don't mind so much, being it makes the hair easier to brush without breakage.
I love this styling oil. I have long highlighted blond hair that sees a lot of heat and abuse. I put 3 pumps in my towel dried hair and everything is easier. Blowdrying is way faster and my hair ALWAYS looks good and never gets frizzy. It lasts forever too because you need very little and the pump is controlled. I just started my second bottle after two years with the first. It doesn't really have a smell and it's not super exciting but it's reliable. I have tried lots of oils as I have thick wavy hair and this is the best by far.
