I have very long thick brown wavy hair, dried out from colouring over the years, and so my hair always seems to snap. I bought this on impulse at the supermarket just to see what it was like. I am impressed! I love what it does for my hair and I've found I've been having less snapping and getting way less split ends! Just be careful to not put too much in as it makes your hair look heavy and gross.
I bought this at around £10 from Boots UK and it has lovely packaging but you don't buy it as an ornament, you buy it for the contents! So I don't see why that's relevant, but it is a nice product. Feels lovely and soft and works well on very short hair, ie. Hair that's a few inches long, but once your hair grows to around bob length like mine did and I tried it again you have to use about 5-6 pumps to coat your hair after washing it. I'd say one bottle would last a month if used regularly. I usually just use a couple of pumps a day and it's nice but light and the best oil I have ever used is Macadamia Natural Oil. In comparison, it only takes a little bit of Macadamia Oil and your hair is instantly transformed to satin and stays silky until you next wash it. Even permed and African hair can become silky, so on my dryish Caucasian curly hair it made it feel amazing, but this product can be so expensive if you buy it from genuine retailers, so as a cheaper alternative I have been using the L'Oreal Elive Extraordinary Oil and it's okay just as something to be going on with. I wouldn't return it to the shop for any quality defects or anything, but I don't think I would buy it again. Might try Coconut Oil next time as I've heard Coconut Oil actually penetrates the hair unlike most hair oils, which just coat the strands. Hope this helps!
Absolutely love this product. I put it on my lenghts just before blow drying my hair or as a pre-shampoo. It doesn't make my hair look greasy, smells good, makes my hair look healthy and shiny. I've been using my bottle for one year right now and it is still like 80% full, because you use a very little amount. I'm gonna rebuy this over and over, it's a musthave in my beauty routine.
I use this oil only in the lenght and roots of my oily, fine hair. Around beditime, I do a good massage with it in the ends of the hair, and then go to bed. The morning after, wash the hair with a good shampoo, only or twice if is still greasy. It adds a lot of shine and suppleness. Great value for money :)
Before i use a product i always research the ingredients in it (since i found lavender oil and spearmint in alot of product which irritates the skin...). I'm surprised to find all ingrediants are natural OTHER THEN the perfume/parfum. i find my hair gets dry after a certain amount of time wearing it. If they maybe put almond oil (VERY good for the hair) i would like this product more. Although nice product, dries out the hair after awhile but nice smell and my hair does feel nice after applied.
Love Extraordinary oil! I use it pretty much everyday. I apply it before blow-drying to protect my hair and to keep it looking healthy, I also apply it to wet hair to air-dry, and I also apply it to dry hair to make my hair look beautiful. A few reviewers dislike the glass bottle, but I love it - it gives an expensive and sophisticated look to the product. The oil itself has a gorgeous smell and the consistency doesn't feel too greasy. I consider this as a beauty staple!
For long period of time I used argan oil hair treatments, that would make my hair oily. This product is amazing, however better results are achieved when its massaged into your dry hair.
Really love this product. I have dry frizzy hair so this is a real god send!! Never gets greasy with this just makes your hair look really healthy and shiny.
Heavy packaging and not very good, i used to use argan oil and it was lovely my hair felt soft and stayed shiny, this stuff just makes it feel nice when first applied but soon my hair is left feeling dry and tangly again :( xx
I wasn't expecting to like this as much as I do. I had used Moroccan Oil in the past and it made my hair lank and greasy, and I broke out in cystic acne wherever my hair touched my shoulders and neck, so I have to admit I was really nervous. I totally fried my hair a couple of days ago when I dyed it and this product has been a godsend. It went from feeling like dried rice noodles to silky soft from the first application. My hair is very very fine and I was worried it would go limp and greasy. It is probably a bit early to tell about the breakouts, but so far there's no sign.
