I love this product! I have tried so many hair oils, but this one is definitely my favorite. I've used Kerastate Elixir Ultime, Bumble and Bumble, Caudalie, etc...I have medium thick hair that goes about an inch beyond my shoulders. I use only 1-2 drops of this oil, so the entire bottle could probably last me countless years. I let my hair air- dry afterwards, and it turns out shiny, silky, and amazingly soft. It also has repaired a lot of damaged hair, although my hair is really healthy because I never use heat on it.
The reason for the bad reviews seems to me to be because people use too much of the oil. Really, just put your finger on the end, tilt the bottle upside down, and use what is on your finger. You need nothing more than that, unless your hair is ungodly long or ungodly thick. This is really an amazing oil!

I have fine hair with ends that tend to be dry. I got the trial size of this at Sephora for CAN$17, which is pretty expensive. I was attracted by the pretty colours and the amazing, candy-like scent. I usually use argan oil to refresh my dry ends on a no-wash day, and love that but the smell isn't always pleasing. I had high hopes for the Rare Blend Oil. Unfortunately, it does nothing to help my hair. In fact, using just a drop too much will render it gritty! I'll stick to my cost-effective argan oil despite the smell.

I can't believe the poor reviews! Really, if you have fine thin 'normal' hair you shouldn't be using any oils as a leave in product!!!
My hair is very thick, course, bleached blonde and quite long.
I have been using coconut oil for years with amazing results. But as it's so hot and humid it's getting a little too heavy for summer use.
I was drawn to this product because it looks so pretty, the colors and the way they layer in the jar :) Then of course I read the label and decided I had to try it.
Well, it's exactly what I was looking for, moisture and detangling without weighing my already heavy hair down. This keeps the frizz at bay and doesn't feel oily at all.
The scent is nice and light, not overpowering like a lot of hair products these days.
I agree with others about the packaging, it's easy to pour too much out of the bottle. I also think it's a bit overpriced, but it is aesthetically pleasing.
Recommend to those with damaged hair looking for lightweight moisture in the warmer months, but I don't think this will be hydrating enough for winter.

I'm now starting to realise that one must have a bit of luck and find products that work for them at the time they're in need. I see some very poor reviews of this product, however after recently trying this over the last few days I'm very happy with it. I sampled this and the originally Ojon hair oil - restorative I think, before purchasing and my hair responded better to this one.
I have quite dry and parched hair due to regularly highlighting my naturally strawberry blond hair and my hair drank this oil up without looking or feeling greasy or heavy. You really do have to be carefull to only add a little bit at a time as it seems it would be very easy to over do it and look like you haven't washed your hair in a long time.
Did it give me supermodel hair? No. However, it did exactly what I needed. It added a natural looking shine on my blond highlights. It gave my hair elasticity (or allows me to fake it at least) which naturally healthy hair has and I've lost. It also made it significanlty less puffy and frizzy. This is much more than all the other hair oils have done for me. As such, I'm very pleased.
However, I think this product would be too oily for anyone with fine hair that gets weighed down easily.
In summary, what works for one, doesn't always work for another. It would be best if you can try this in a store before you buy it as it's quite expensive.

I recently got a haircut that is a tragedy. As such, I've been trying different hair products to try and turn it into something manageable. After seeing this on one of my favorite YouTube gurus hair care videos, I decided to give it a try. I purchased the small bottle for $15 from Sephora.
This is, without a doubt, one of the worst products I've ever used on my hair. It left my hair so stripped and dry that it took several deep conditioning sessions and other highly moisturizing leave-in products to get my hair back in it's previous condition, let alone a better condition. I will absolutely not be using this product again.

The first thing that made me blown away was the fragrance of this! It took me like 10 minutes thinking and trying to realize where I've smelled this before. Amazing, fantastic, cookie smell. And then it hit me: Mac cleanse off oil. It smells EXACTLY like that. Which I love! So that already made me love it. With moroccanoil and kerastase elixir I usually apply a pea sized amount of a little bit more. I have dry, dark, thick, medium to long hair, and I have A LOT of hair. But even a pea sized amount was too much! You know when you apply olive oil to your hair, and even a tiny bit makes it look like it's wet and you have just washed it?! Well this is like applying olive oil to your hair but without the nasty smell or the sticky feeling in your hands. It absorbs better. I gues it's a good oil for applying at night, going to bed, and then washing in the morning. As a finishing oil i dont think many people are going to like this because it's just too oily. I'm gonna try to apply less next time. Oh and the bottle doesn't help either, it doesn't have a pump, but a huge hole instead, which sucks.
So, I like it, love the smell, but the bottle it's just ridiculous. I feel like sometimes brands do this on purpose, just so you can waste product.
IMPORTANT: if you have fine hair or oily hair stay away from this.

I got the product as a sample, and I have been seeing in the blogger and other reviewers about how this product will help to tame your hair. I have a thin( not course) but heavy I mean a lot of thin and curly hair that are hard to manage. Either I have to straighten it or just make a bun and off I go. Ooh not to mention I have a long hair. So I tried this oil hair therapy, after I wash my hair and apply this in my damp hair. First of all it takes longer to dry and my hair looks awful like I haven't washed in a month or something. So that failed, I tried different method, so I apply the oil Therapy on my dry hair and leave them for about an hour before I wash my hair (usually this will do the trick with other hair oil therapy/treatment I used). Ok... ta da... after washing my hair with regular shampoo and conditioner, yaaaiks my hair is even dryer and looks like brittle??? just like the corn hair. Well, this product is just not for my hair type. And it took me 4 days of washing my hair to get the residue of the oil really out of my last strand of hair.

This is NOT for me. I got a sample in my Beauty Bar box, which was nice because I've been wanting to try it. I'm glad I didn't go out and buy a big bottle just to test! My hear felt dry even when it was still damp from the shower. I'm not crazy about the smell, but it's not terrible. For price and packaging, I really can't judge since it was kinda free and just came in a tall vial. I won't buy this again, but if you can get your hands on a sample before you buy, I'd go that route.

I got a (somewhat deluxe) sample of this oil in my Birch Box last month. I'd been eye balling it on the Sephora website for a while so it's one of the few times the folks at Birch Box sent me something I was already interested in.
Just an overview: my hair is super dry, thick and super curly. Back when I was flush with cash, I got keratin treatments which, despite all the hullabaloo about toxic fumes, etc., are a God send to me because it makes the whole straighten process easy. Since I'm not flush with cash at the moment, my hair has reverted back to its frizzy natural state. This is especially true at the crown where it seems like my hair is even curlier and unruly. As such, I like to try any product that claims to moisturize or tame my frizzies. This oil doesn't really tame much so if you're looking for something to smooth out your hair, this probably isn't the product. Rare Oil conditions well enough and it smells nice (vaguely suntan lotion-y) but I didn't notice any amazing results.
Truth be told, this oil is comparable to just about any other hair oil out there that is a fraction of the price. I think the draw for this product is the fact that it separates into a tri-color oil that looks pretty cool in the bottle. Throw in a hefty price tag and (most) people think it's a product that is bound to work. Don't get me wrong, this isn't terrible but it's certainly not worth the $35.00 price tag. Aside from the high price tag, this oil is impossible to control in the pour bottle that it comes in. If you try to pour out a small amount, you best believe half of the oil will come out. Why this isn't in a pump, spritz or even a squeeze bottle is beyond me.
Overall, this is a nice product (if you use it sparingly) but I likely won't buy it unless the price is drastically reduced or someone gave it to me for free. With all the cheap hair oils floating around today, I don't see a great need to spend extra money on hair oil that's virtually the same as a generic/drugstore brand that doesn't separate into three pretty oils.

Does wonders for my thick yet easily weighed down hair. My hair is normally in pretty good condition but sometimes I just want something to add sheen and gloss, and this does the job. The added heat protection is a bonus as I almost always put this oil into wet hair instead of dry.
It's very thick and creamy, and you only need a teeny tiny amount because of it - the way the SA showed me was to put the palm of your hand on top of the bottle and then tip it upside down onto your hand, and then turn it the right way up again before you remove your hand. That way you only get a tiny amount and it's just right.
Saying that, the packaging is a bit silly, so I'm thinking of buying a pump top to go over it.
Overall an amazing product but perhaps the packaging needs a rethink!
