Here's one hair product that I will certainly repurchase! I was standing at the Kiehls counter waiting to buy the musk oil and saw this product's tester. So, bored, I decided to pick it up and examine, and maybe give it a try. I read on the label that it has NO silicones, which intrigued me and all good natural oils. Having extremely dry, damaged from coloring, old frizzy hair, I figured a few spritzes of this while at the store wouldn't make my mop look worse, so I used about 4 sprays and ran through my mid-back-length hair at Nordstrom. I was astounded. Not only did it smooth the frizz, it made my long-dull hair shiny and smooth! And NO SILICONES! It was $25 dollars so I grabbed it, and have been using it religiously since. It has NEVER caused my hair to frizz up (like silicone products always do), it does not build up, and it really conditions and smoothes my hair like silk! I have read that using silicones on hair to smooth it eventually does the opposite of what one wants, i.e. once the silicones dry on the hair shaft, they shrink, causing MORE frizz. Well, this Kiehls oil is totally different, it really soothes the hair shaft, and smoothes it out like nobody's business. I will buy this again and again until the end of time! Thank you, Kiehls!

OH MY GOD
My hair has NEVER looked anything like this, sooo shiny like pantine provine commercial shinny. MY HOLY GRAIL OF HAIR PRODUCTS. I know it's ridiculous but this product is my religion and I will preach it.
UPDATE - The product rubbed onto my skin and made me break out! Now weekly I use apricot kernel oil in my hair overnight with the same effect and no acne :)

I was very skeptical about using this without using a conditioner first. My hair is very course and unruly and so I use conditioner pretty much religiously. I did use the 6 sprays on freshly shampoo'd hair and I was shocked at how it tamed my hair. It was easier to blow it straight and it looked really healthy and smooth when I finished. I bought this product on a whim and am very very glad I did!

I bought a bottle of this oil because I had a voucher and my beloved herbal shampoo was out. Looking back, I'm glad I did. This oil comes in a sturdy, orange bottle (yes, it's the bottle that's orange not the oil itself) with the trademark white label. Now, the first thing about my hair routine I had to let go, was using a conditioner after shampooing. The instructions on the oil bottle say to shampoo first and THEN apply the oil on damp hair. Hence, I left the conditioner aside and I think this is the only way to make it work without getting greasy hair. My hair is about shoulder blade length and rather thick so I apply the recommended 6 sprays before combing it through with my tangle teezer. The oil really does feel light weight and almost dry. It's difficult to describe. Only when my hair dries and I touch it, I can feel that I actually applied oil. It doesn't feel greasy, just well nourished, lush and very, very soft. Once completely dry, my hair looks incredibly shiny and has wonderful definition & volume. No frizz, no fly-aways. I also love to touch it because it feels really great but that could just be my fetish speaking. What I also noticed is less hair loss. I used to wash out quite an amount of hair each time and that's not the case anymore although I can't say why. It's not like I apply the oil on my scalp. The scent is exactly the same as Kiehl's Argan Oil Conditioner: very organic but not unpleasant and it lasts about a day or two. Now for a warning or two: I think it's absolutely possible to overdo & end up with really greasy hair. But that can happen with any hair oil and even though this is the lightest hair oil I ever had, it's STILL oil. So be careful and keep to the instructions. I also think that this is too heavy a treatment for those with fine hair.
One bottle comes at the hefty price of 30 € in Europe (which is quite the scandal, considering the 25 $ price tag in the U.S.) and contains 4.0 fl oz / 118ml. I haven't even used up a noticable amount yet so a little goes a really long way which is why I can justify spending that much money on hair oil. The ingredients are also rather luxurious, I might add: Argan oil, Safflower Oil, Sesame Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil & Jojoba Oil. And it comes without silicones & parabens, yay! A rather accidental, unplanned purchase that turned out to be a blessing! I'm so very glad I got it and I will most definitely repurchase. Highly recommended!
Update 2013-05-24: This has become my holy grail regarding hair care. I'm not even halfway through my bottle, although I use it after washing my hair *every* time and, having said that, my hair has never been so beautiful! It's in perfect condition, healthy, shiny, smooth, sleek, flawless. I hope Kiehl's keeps this forever. I gave away all conditioners I still had stashed, btw. I'm only using shampoo & this oil. There's nothing better.
