first I was afraid to use oil without cone,
also i just cant stand smell of many hair oil ,for example pureology oil.

hair oil no cone is sounds bit heavy on my hair or cause weight down my hair.

2. apply on dry hair.
3. apply on wet hair then towl dried.

I have dry, fine long coloured hair (but a lot of it) and I'm not convinced with this product. Don't get me wrong the packaging is AMAZING and it looks beautiful, lovely bottle, but really isn't that great. First time I used too much, I used 6 drops even though the package said 2-3 because my hair is long, but it completely greased up my hair! Second time I used 3 as per the instructions, but it made little difference to my hair - no shine and no visible difference to the £6 loreal oil I normally use. Very disappointed, but will keep using it as the packaging suggests different uses (e.g before shampooing or mixed in with hair treatments). I have the gold bottle not the black one in the picture.

I have fine, color-treated hair with an oily scalp and dry ends. I use this after I shower and before I blow dry my hair. I use a couple drops along with the Chi Keratin Silk Infusion and my normally frizzy hair comes out smooth, sleek, soft and shiny.

In the beginning I made the mistake of using too much and it weighed my hair down but after a couple trial and errors I found a dime size amount of the silk infusion and 2-3 drops of the diamond oil are the perfect amount for my long (just past the middle of my back) hair. I concentrate on the mid-shaft and ends and avoid my scalp completely.

The bottle is sturdy glass, not plastic like I expected, so I make sure to keep it away from the edge of the sink. Can you imagine trying to clean this up after a spill?

The only down size is the price. It's currently listed for $40 at Ulta. You use a very small amount so it will last a while but $40 still seems pretty steep. I'd buy it again but only if it's on sale or if I had a coupon.

Absolutely LOVE this product I've had it for months and at first didn't like it at all but I wasn't using it correctly which is why I know a lot of people dislike this product. I use two drops max on my fine damaged hair after the shower in damp hair and let air dry and after styling my hair it looks feels smells everything is healthy and fresh. Wouldn't go back to anything else my hair hasn't felt this healthy and nice in a longtime

No body on here is using it correctly. On the bottle and on the Redken site it tells you to put it in your hair before shampoing or overnight as a mask before shampooing. This product works great when you use it correctly.

I was really hesitant to purchase this because it looked kind of gimmicky and was kind of expensive. But I did...and I quite like this oil. I have very long hair (down to my butt) and despite consistent cutting and conditioning (I do not color my hair), my ends are always dry and my hair gets knotted and tangled really easily. This stuff not only smoothes and conditions my hair like nobody's business, but it makes it look really shiny and healthy! It also helps with the frizz. I usually need about two to three droppers worth of oil for my ends (I never apply it to my scalp, only from the ears down). I only use this on the days where I don't condition my hair. It's non-oily and doesn't not transfer to my pillow or face. It has the typical "argan oil" type of smell, but it doesn't last long once it's absorbed. Since you use so little, this big bottle will last you a long time - which kind of makes it worth the price.

After carefully reading the reviews here I decided to give this hair oil a try. Unfortunately I didn't read the eBay product description nearly so carefully, and wound up purchasing a bottle of the Intense version rather than the standard one in the amber bottle, which is what I thought would be more appropriate for my hair. But I got a great deal, and after thinking it over I decided to open the box and give it a try rather than go through the hassle and expense of returning and exchanging.

In short, I'm really glad I did. About me: my hair is very short, minimally processed, and fine in texture but I do have a lot of it. I have now been using the Intense version for about 2 months so I've had some time to play around with the product before writing this review. Zero regrets about going with the Intense version. I use 2 drops every morning after getting out of the shower, just rub them between my palms and then apply with my hands through wet hair. Blow dry like normal. Anything more than two drops and yes, my hair will look greasy, but it's very easy to measure out the right amount with the dropper provided in the bottle. Occasionally at night I'll distribute up to 5 drops in my hair as a deep conditioning treatment before going to bed. This product has made a noticeable difference in the sheen and texture of my hair, it looks and feels softer and healthier than it did before. The smell is nice, nothing special, and if I'm only using 2 drops at a time I can't smell it once it's in my hair but on those treatment nights I can smell the product after application.

The bottle is HUGE - even if you pay full price for this you're still getting a bargain, especially if you use it as frugally as I do. I'll probably have to will this to my grandchildren. No problems with it being glass either, just use a little extra caution and don't go throwing it around.

This is very versatile as it can be used as a leave-in, mixed with your deep conditioner, or as a pre-shampoo treatment. It's a lovely oil with no silicones, which can be difficult to find nowadays as almost all hair oils on the market have silicone in them. The silicone is what gives your hair the smooth shiny look, and the silicone gives hair the super silky slip factor. But the thing about silicone is it build up greatly, and dries out your hair a TON. It creates a coating around the hair shaft, preventing any moisturizing or hydrating ingredients from penetrating the hair. Then as your hair gradually gets drier, you find yourself using more and more of the product in attempt to combat the dryness. This is marketing, my friends. It works amazing at first, giving you smooth, shiny, silky hair. Then the silicone builds up, and you keep using more and more of their product. People say their hair gets "used to" products, this is false. It's that they are using products with silicone. This oil will not make your hair extremely shiny and silky overnight. This oil actually penetrates the hair to make it healthier, not just give the illusion that hair is heathy. It repairs and protects the hair, and with continued use over time, it can really improve the health of hair. People have left reviews saying it is not to be used as a leave-in. I use this as a leave-in every time I wash my hair. The trick is to use very little, and just in the ends. Those who are used to using tons of moroccanoil in their hair will get a serious shock when they use the same amount of this, hair will feel greasy and gross lol. This makes hair super soft, you only need a little through the ends and lengths of hair. A dime size for my long hair is what I use. Moroccanoil is nice and all, but do not use it every time you wash your hair or at least not long-term. I made this mistake, you must give your hair a break from the silicones. Moroccanoil is full of them. It makes your hair shiny, smooth, and smell great. But it does not make your hair healthy. This diamond oil is amazing and a total godsend to those trying to grow their hair or increase the overall health of their hair.

My fine hair did not like this product (or the original in the orange/amber colored bottle)
No matter how little I put in, dry or wet, it made my hair greasy, not shiny, and feel dirty.
it wasn't shiny at all. it made my hair look and feel wet. kinda like wet straw, if that makes sense.
Since I'd definitely never walk out in public with this on my head I'm using it as a treatment before I take a shower and when I sleep just to use it up, but even that way I hate it.
horrible product. smells awful.

I like Wella's oil and Martix's oil much better!
In fact, I love hair oils. I think they're amazing, just not this redken one. so many other great oils!

Review for the regular version in the amber colored bottle.
Great product. The oil really moisturizes and adds shine to my dry-ish but unprocessed hair. I notice a reduction of frizz and dryness and a sparkle to my hair. Lovely!
I don't dislike the strong scent, but I do find it pretty intrusive and it clashes with my perfumes, so I usually apply 4 drops to my mid back-length hair before going to bed, avoiding the roots, and then I braid my hair. The next morning my hair is shiny and soft (and without scent!) and the waves induced by the braiding are lovely and defined. The evening before the day I wash my hair (every 3 days), I apply 6 drops as a pre shampoo "treatment" (not really, just a bit of extra care) and then after washing and conditioning, when the hair is still damp, I apply 3 drops.
Doing this, my hair never looks oily and on wash day, the oiled part of my hair will still look super conditioned and if it weren't for my oily roots, I'd be reluctant to wash.
The packaging, hmmmm. I really like the dropper concept, but seriously Redken, oil in a glass bottle, called Shatterproof? That's very brave...
