LOVE!!! This product......it is wonderful for my curly, frizzy, VERY dry, double processed hair. This product is definately great for delicate hair like it says!! AND if you mix it in during styling with gel or just alone during styling it detangles. Over look the one or two drops like is says on the bottle if your hair is anything like mine. You really need a good dime size for shoulder length and below. Some things about the product however, just to respond to other reviewers comments so that everyone has a fair idea of the product......for those doing an organic and natural route like myself, there ISNT any propolene glycol like one reviewer said (not sure where she got that from the only ingredient that was a concern of mine was the isoproyl palmitate and I looked that up and it is made from coconuts (so nope all organic).and (like another reviewer said) YES you can make it yourself (that is what I am NOW in the process of doing) but it is WAY MORE expensive that $20.00 and I searched around for the ingredients. If you get certified organic, cold pressed oils it can run you anywhere from 35.00 to 50.00. If you get lower quality oils sure you can make it for on the lower end of 28.00 to 30.00.....no way could you do it for 20.00. AND if you did lower quality oils what would be the point. Bottomline it is a outstanding, wonderful product for VERY dry hair that is processed and a God send to anyone that is not using sulfates, silicones, proplene glycol and going very natural and organic. And on a side note I am causacian, with hair an inch or so down my shoulders.
A very nice blended hair oil comprised of olive oil, propylene glycol, argan oil, lavender essential oil and I believe limonene, which is part of the essential oil fragrance. So, it smells like lavender with grassy tones. I use this as a pre-shampoo treatment on lengths and ends and have found it to be very nice and moisturizing. I don't like it quite as much as a styler on damp or dry hair, although if used sparingly it can be done (smoothing, softening, adding definition, roping in strays). If I remember correctly, it's about $20 for a 3.4oz bottle, so it's pretty expensive for what it is, although you'll definitely get a lot of use out of it. The packaging is excellent though: a soft, easy to hold squeezy bottle with a twist open tip which makes it very easy to control where the oil's going on the occasions when I do actually apply it to my scalp. In light of this, here's my suggestion. Buy the original, use it, enjoy it. When you finish it up, buy some argan oil, lavender essential oil (or another EO if you prefer) and mix it up with some olive oil. Pour into Biolage bottle. Continue enjoying.
I gave this product a 3 overall and said no to repurchase because, while it's a really nice product, I'd be a fool to repurchase something I could so easily make myself. But I'd definitely want the original bottle =)
My hair: fine, dense, 1b (straightish to frizzy with very loose waves, straightens with brushing). Oily roots, dry angry ends, color-treated, just past mid-back.
I think this is Biolage's answer to the popular Moroccan oil product. I'm still trying to find the best way to use it at the moment. My hair is relatively short - above shoulder length and when I put a couple of drops throughour the hair it goes all soggy and oily. I've tried using it on the very ends only which is better, but then that defeats the purpose as I want something to moisturize the hair throughout the length to prevent frizz. The smell is quite nice though - a green grassy type, not sure how to describe it better.
