Dimethicone is in almost all shine products including those from high end lines like Kerastase. However, this product also contains several other types of oil missing from the other silicone-based products on the market. As a result of these other oils including olive oil, coconut oil, and safflower oil, as well as grape seed, I find Bumble and Bumble's version to be much better for color-treated hair that is dry. The trick is to only use a little bit. One pump, spread over the palms, and then apply to the ends of your hair avoiding the scalp. Too much of any shine product with make your hair greasy. Invisible Oil works great for me and makes my hair very soft and manageable. For reference, I have hair of medium thickness that is dry due to blonde highlights and regular exposure to sun (I live in a sunny desert climate).
If you find this too intense for you (for example, if you have fine hair that is not dry), you will probably like Bumble and Bumble's Brilliantine product for shine.

This made my hair so greasy. It definitely isn't invisible. I felt like my hair was coated and weighed down. A definite no.
I probably would not have bought this, if I had read the reviews here. It is not a popular product! I bought it, when I was having a desperately frizzy day. I wasn't sure about spending so much money on an oil. The Sephora SA assured me I could return it, if it didn't work. For me, it did work suprisingly well. It smoothed the frizz down without looking greasy or heavy, just shiny. This is the best oil I have tried and I have tried alot. It is an investment though, so worth trying a sample to see if it works for you. UPDATE: Not quite as impressed as I was. Some days this works and some days, it doesn't. Not sure why results vary for me!
Don't buy into the hype! This is in no way an oil that is good for your hair. The first ingredient is dimethicone, a synthetic silicone oil that is known to cause skin sensitivities and acne. It's a cheap ingredient that is in tons of lotions, cosmetics, and hair products - especially inexpensive drugstore ones, so why are they charging $38 for this oil? Sure it may smooth your hair initially (if you blow dry) but sure enough it will eventually dry out your hair. All it does is coat the hair. Bumble and Bumble is good at marketing, too bad their products can't live up to their claims. Stick with Moroccan oil.
I have very smooth straight coarse black hair that is very shiny idk why in the hell I decided to try this as a professional cosmetologist myself I should've known better! This crap made my hair so greasy it looked as if I was a dirty bum with greasy slick hair I only put a drop and I have 18 inch long hair omg my hair was attracting fuzzies and dust literally! Why would I pay $30+ for a silicone based product when I could easily go to a drug store or Armstrong McCall and get something for a better value and better quality instead of paying 30 something for this "High End" trash!
I have to agree w/the negative reviews. I purchased this at my salon during a B&B event, becuse of the UV protection. I have extremely thick course wavy red hair. This just isn't heavy enough to reduce the frizz like the argan oil does. I've been using it after I blow dry to lightly smooth out any flyways. It doesn't make my hair greasy and smooths nicely, but due to the price I won't purchase again. I think it might work better for someone w/fine hair.
I tried this in-store (it was impossible to miss the huge displays with testers in Sephora!) and I'm so glad I tried it before buying. I'm generally a sucker for hair oils and leave in smoothing type products. My hair is coarse, wavy and prone to frizzing in humid weather. I flat iron regularly (2 to 3 times a week, though more lately because of hot yoga!). I might have just grabbed this had the price not been so steep. Anyway, I smoothed it onto the ends of my hair and the results were not very good at all - in fact, it left the ends of my hair feeling "crispy" and sort of sticky. It also left my hands feeling sticky - I had to go to the mall washrooms to wash the residue off my palms. I will stick with my trusted Moroccan Oil or Osis Magic as smoothing treatments. I was surprised by how poorly Hairdresser's Invisible Oil performed. Based on trying it, I wouldn't buy this even at a budget price!
EXPENSIVE! for a poor performance. Did nothing to smooth my frizz at the ends. I might just mix it with my conditioner since I don't want it to go to waste. The new Garnier Morrocan oil is much better and cheaper.
I got a sample of this from Sephora. I was very surprised when the sample packaging said that the person used a dime sized portion. I have highlighted hair that is VERY dry on the ends, but I also have an oily scalp so I have to be careful. Even about half of that made my hair look greasy (of course, I got nowhere near my scalp with it), and it didn't help with smoothing out the flyaways. Like the first reviewer said as well, it left a disturbing, gummy residue on my hands that required me to use a scrub to get it off. Sorry, but this just isn't invisible, or a good product.
Light oil, great for the ends of my hair. I use only one-two pumps for the middle-ends of my long hair (and I have a lot of it). Gives shine and definition. I can't use it on the top of my hair or my bangs, weighs it down. Makes hair soft. But too much can make it flat.
