I use this prior to washing my hair or for after the shower as a styler, this product made my hair much better when I was bleaching and using hi lift color like crazy, it does tame my hair and it makes a great pre wash hair mask, now that my hair is almost back to my natural color I only use it for after the shower, it makes my hair wavy, Agadir makes my hair curly, I use with a light hand because you can really make your hair looking super oily with this, two sprays are my max.
I use the rest on my body, keeps skin looking great. Benn using this bottle for a long time and barely looks used.
This has got to be the most underrated hair product in hair history.
I have long, thick black hair. I get numerous compliments and everyone wants to know my "secret" on how it gets so shiny. Really, it's so simple! I never really put much thought into my "hair regime" but since I get asked so frequently, I hope my review helps someone:
1) I wash with a dime size amount of shampoo all over my entire head, careful to massage and lather in my roots/scalp.
2) I use again, a dime size amount of conditioner on just my ends.
3) On damp hair, I apply two drops of Proclaim (which I warm up with my palms) and dispense all over my hair. I brush the product in and let it air dry/blow dry it in with a roller brush.
Easy as cake. I never use any other hair product such as gels, sprays, leave in conditioners --nada. I find the more hair products you use on your hair, the worse it becomes.
I purchased this product during three years ago for $15 at my local salon. It's still no where near done. You don't need a lot, and it does wonders to hydrate my dry hair in the winter/summer time and adds that extra gloss over (which salons will over charge you for!)
This is a very lightweight, all-purpose oil. Does not go on heavy at all. I really like the ingredient list. Nothing but good oils, vitamin e and fragrance. The scent is pleasant but a bit overpowering for me. I have sensitive, dry skin and this is not effective enough for me. But as it is such a good value, it is worth giving it a dry for hand and nails, body and hair care.
This is an excellent body oil for not so dry skins. If your is is almost borderline eczemic, donīt use it. As a hair oil, it was fine as well, but my hair is also too dry. Believe or not, this didnīt moisturize my hair at all. <as a hand oil or cuticle oil however, this is brilliant stuff. Makes your cuticles so soft and malleable itīs unbelievable. It also works great as a bath oil. Mix it with powdered milk and some honey. Great little pick me up and it smells luxurious and relaxing. I wouldnīt buy it again because I think Iīve used much better. Otherwise, great little jewel for those who arenīt dry as a desert (almost). continued >>
I love this for my hair. The spray bottle is stupid because it doesn't spray out in a fine mist but rather in a concentrated blob stream that's better to just spray in your hand then rub your hands together and apply, but that's a small matter. Got mine at Sally's and I would buy it again. Makes my hair silky. Love it. Can also be used for the face and body as well as hair.
I have long, bleached hair. Since using this product as a deep oil treatment twice a week, my hair has really improved. My split ends have almost disappeared. And my hair is very silky and manageable, It does not feel like straw anymore !!
Once again, this proves that just because a product is dirt cheap doesn't mean it won't work. I will never blow lots of money on fancy hair conditioners anymore !! This one is awesome..and the green bottle of 'Natural 7 with Olive Oil' is almost better than this one. It smells better, feels lighter on your hair, and leaves my hair VERY silky,- NOT greasy at all.. I HIGHLY recommend BOTH of these Proclaim products
I hate to ruin the perfect score for this product but I am really disappointed in this one. I saw the rave reviews so I decided to pick this up last week when I went to Sally. Natural oils and dirt cheap! What could be wrong with that, right? Ha! Natural 7 my arse. Not so natural it turns out. This has several really nasty ingredients in it like an endocrine disruptor, several immune system toxins, skin toxins, along with some cones, and perfume. Needless to say I am returning this. I am mad at myself for not checking the ingredients before I bought this. My fault. I should know by now that just because something says its natural doesn't mean it's not a chemical cesspool. Lesson learned (again.) I'll just keep making my own oil blends so I can know, for certain, that I'm not polluting myself or my family in the name of beauty.
I got this on sale from Sallys for 2.99, regular 3.99. I ran across the reveiws for it and I decided to check it out. I love using natural stuff on my skin, so this was a bonus! It soaked in so easy, which is a plus cause usually with oil products they sit on my skin and take forever and leave me feeling gross and slippery. It didnt do it with this, it soaked right in and left my skin smooth. It smells so good too! I honestly didnt expect it to stink, but I thought it would have some type of earthy scent. Love it for the price! And great product.
I LOOOVE this stuff. I used this throughout my pregnancy to help my itchy skin and moisturize my stretching skin. I bought a bunch of these bottles. I put some drops in my bath. I massage my feet with it and my cuticles during manicures...WAY better than that " cuticle oil " my nail lady uses. I also use a couple drops of this stuff in the bottle of my hair dye and it makes my hair dye stay for a lot longer. A few weeks ago I noticed a bottle was missing! * gasps !!! * where did it go??? Well it just so happens my husband uses it for his clippers. Im not sure how or wat he uses it for but all he said was, " i use it to cut my hair for my clippers. " So this really is a wonder oil. Also, it smells GLORIOUS!
UDPATE: I read the 'chemical cesspool'(?!) post under this product and I'm sorry, but don't understand the rant. I'm not sure what product the poster is referring to, but I'd like to balance the hyperbole and debunk the dramatics about this not being a natural product, or worse, that it could be a health-damaging one. Imagine that.
I will not list all the chemical names of the ingredients, but stick to their familiar names which are listed beside their 'chemical' name:
Olive Fruit Oil
Castor Seed Oil
Jojoba Seed Oil
Grape Seed Oil
Sesame Seed Oil
Sweet Almond Oil
Cyclomethacone (your 'cone)
Fragrance, then a list of chemicals ALL of which are naturally derived and approved as FOOD GRADE products by the FDA, some of which are thought to be ANTI-CARCINOGENES - meaning they *prevent* cancers, not cause them.
Please, before posting a review of fear-based 'facts' with such superiority, just fact check your post against the product you are talking about, and what is actually in it. So everyone, enjoy this product in good health.
And so, my original review:
This is for the Proclaim Natural 7 with Olive Oil in the green cap bottle (pictured)
A resounding Yes! This is da bomb. I used to make my own natural oil blend very similar to this and it was fabulous for my skin - this is the closest to it I've found on the market. I use this for everything, and everything I use it for is better for it! This oil is super softening to the skin and is such a light, skin-friendly oil it just sinks right in. Simple, natural, light and lovely scented. Makes your skin silky smooth and you can't believe how it manages frizzies! I've uploaded a picture or two to show how amazing this stuff works. I'm over 50 with fine hair and use hot tools on my hair and I colour and highlight - in other words I challenge my hair! I've been frustrated with not being able to control the frizzies in my style, especially after flat ironing. I've got every product to try and smooth things out. But I tried the Natural 7 oil (and I uploaded a picture of how this oil took care of it!) After my hair is completely dried and styled I tease the under layers and smoothed the top layers over. Then I take about 1/4 tsp of Natural 7 oil and rub it all over my palms and fingers. Then I 'air brush' my hair down. I just pass my hands *over* my hair style above the hair - just where the frizzies hang out. I do this over as I need, never touching my hair, just sweeping my hands right above my hair wherever I se frizz poking out. Then I touch the ends up to give definition and shine. You can overdo it and look stringy so go spare and build as you go.
