While this didn't make my fine hair greasy or weighted down the day I put it in (the day after may be slightly more greasy than if I used something else), it also did absolutely nothing for me.
I have fine asian hair and lots of it and can typically get away with not conditioning in the shower even though I have highlights. After using this after every wash for a month, my hair is much drier and less glossy. Normally, with or even without a leave in serum (or moisturizer if I don't have anything else on hand), my hair is extremely glossy and reflective. Now, it looks duller. And my ends actually feel crunchy. It does still work to detangle but does nothing for actually conditioning.
I usually only pump of about a dewdrop size into wet hair and then another of the same size concentrating on the ends. Like with many other serums, 1 full pump will definitely make me greasy. Plus side is if I put the semi dried mess into a bun or braids, it will actually hold a wave after it dries all day when usually my hair reverts back to straight in an hour. Also the serum smells fantastic. Too bad it doesn't do what it says it should.
Using even a small amount of this hair serum turns my hair into a weighed down, heavy, greasy mess. I have fine hair, but lots of it, and it turns unbearably oily if I don't wash it every day. My hair looks great when I use the Fekkai glossing cream or, even better, the Fekkai sheer shine mist. Those are really the only two products I've ever found that make my hair look smooth and shiny, but not greasy or weighed down.
This argan oil hair serum is similar to most of the 'cone heavy styling products I've tried. My hair looks okay for about the first half hour that this is in and then rapidly flattens and turns oily and greasy looking. It makes me look like I haven't washed my hair in days, almost a so greasy it's wet look. Then my scalp starts itching.
This just doesn't work for me at all. Definitely in the 'hate it' category for me.
Pros: This did a good job of giving my fine, somewhat dry hair a nice shine and reducing frizz.
Cons: It doesn't work any better than any number of drug store products and/or more reasonably priced higher-end options you'd see at Sephora or Ulta. For the price, I expected to see much more of a result.
Packaging is awful. I had no dropper so I had to pour it into my hand and then fuss with my hair for a few minutes to try and make sure it was evenly applied -- and if you accidentally use too much it will make your hair look greasy and limp.
Bottom line: In my opinion, there are equally good options for a fraction of the price.
I have fine dry hair that just tend to look a mess without some sort of smoothing treatment, keratin, or argan oil. I love this, it makes my hair so soft and shiny. I put a few drops in the palm of my hand, rub them together to warm it up and apply to my hair. I have used this both air drying my hair and with a hair dryer and have gotten great results either way. Despite being fine, I found that this doesn't weigh my hair down.
I tried this several times, and found it really weighed my hair down and made it look gross and greasy by mid afternoon, which is unusual for me. I have experimented with using different amounts of this product and just can't get good results no matter how little I use. Will not repurchase, but am happy to see that other people are happy with the product. I love JM products, this just isn't one for me.
Here's your headline: would not repurchase. It's really sticky and weighs down my hair. I applied it on my hair after taking a shower and then proceeded to blow dry. My hair felt heavy and oily. I don't think I used very much of this stuff.
So glad this was just a sample and I didn't waste money buying it!
This product is heaven on earth. It makes my hair soft and shiny without weighing it down. Perfect for taming the ends. I really notice the difference when I don't use this product. I have long hair and I find that one pump is more than enough product. Remember to warm it in your hands before you apply it.
I just cannot shell out this much money for hair oil! i really love the lightness of it and the rose scent is quite nice. it left me hair very smooth and not weighed down at all (i used on wet hair). but again, $96.00 bucks for 4 oz? yikes! i am going to try and find pure argan oil on amazon. Oh-this also was so light that i couldnt detangle my hair very well like the oils below.
my all time favorite is enjoys hair and skin treatment oil. affordable, smells awesome, amount is generous for the price (about $35.00). 2nd runner up is Biosilk. Both deliver in terms of smoothing out my bleached highlights. Hair oil definitely speeds up the drying time also. I prefer the scent of Biosilk but if you use too much on fine hair it can get greasy. I always use this on WET hair, it also helps getting the brush through to detangle also.
Bottom Line: I really LOVE this oil but really, over priced and there are comparable dupes out there for much less.
Hmmm to repurchase is the question??? I love this stuff the scent is amazing and when I flat iron my hair it looks so good, soft, and healthy. But the price is a little crazy in my opinion is it amazing yes. Does my One N Only Argan oil work just as well? Yes and no it's a different feeling with Josie's hair serum it's much lighter than most serums. It leaves your hair light and soft where as the One N Only leaves a more glossier finish. I don't know why there is a difference but there is I would think because of the silicones in the Josie Maran.
So would I repurchase this yes I think I would but when I run out will I run to Sephora no, when I find there are less expensive oils that get the job done. What is great about the JM is it does feel luxurious and I really like that. You can tell your using a high quality product that's for sure. I have very long hair so I don't know if I can afford this all the time but it is something I think a girl should treat herself to. I will recommend this to friends.
Ive tried many hair oils and this one is in the best! probably also the most expensive.. it doesnt weigh my fine hair down and gives lots of shine - but ive had to abandon it to find something more affordable! This little bottle went down super fast!!
