All this did was impart a nice shine to my already straight hair. What it did not do was stop frizzies/flyaways unless shoveled on and then I was left with flat hair.
I didn't like the smell very much nor did I like the weird waxy/waterproof feel on my hands when done. I'm glad I only bought the sample size and I still feel ripped off.
Smell is so so but I do like this

This made my hair really soft and left it looking very healthy and shiny. I do love this! I was using waaaay to much, I was used to my old stuff that I used more of. A small amount goes a long away, literally a pea size is perfect for my short hair. My hair is shiny and super soft. I even bought the travel size for a friend because I knew she would love it to.

I was so exicited about this, but for me it didn't do it. I thought it would be more conditioning for my wavy hair, but it really is kind of sticky. I will not repurchase.

I've had long, long hair for years. Every blue moon, I get an itch and chop it all off into a pixie and then grow it all out again. The last time I had a pixie was freshmen year of high school, and now as a recent college grad, it's been chopped again from mid-back length. Needless to say, the DH cried for ages.
When I had long hair, this stuff was meh. In fact, it was sort of disgusting to use. My mom had given it to me and I rarely found a chance to use it. Every time I did, it would look like I had just dipped my hair into some grease, rubbed it around, and walked around without washing my hair for years. I like a poufy, bedhead look with long hair, something that looks effort-less.
Enter pixie cut with very choppy layers and almost razor cut ends, two months into the regrow period with no trims except for the mullet back. My hair looked like a cross between Asian boy band member and 70s dad. Even with a very coarse and thick texture, everything liked to pouf up every which way. It wasn't a good look especially when I wanted a more professional look for work. I also didn't want to use wax (too heavy) or gel (too thick, shiny, obvious, flakey, etc).
This stuff is PERFECT for going through the dreaded growing out stage with some grace. It flattens everything on my pixie without making it look greasy, simply because I think it works better with texturized hair. It also makes my hair feel super soft. I'm amazed. There really needs to be a disclaimer for hair products, because I'm usually clueless about all of them besides heat protectant.

I love this product! Tames all frizzies and makes hair shiny and smooth. A little goes a very long way. I have long, thick hair and only have to use a dime-sized amount.

I started using Fekkai about a month ago and OMG I am in love! It works so much better than regular shampoo. I have thick thick hair and trust me it leaves my hair so soft and shiny! I have been getting so many compliments from people and my boyfriend loves the smell of the shampoo! It IS super expensive for the size of the bottle, which is a bummer. I will keep on buying fekkai products! I am addicted!

I purchased this expensive product only because of recommendations online. I noticed that I wasn't quite getting the salon results when styling my hair at home. I could not understand why as I own a quality straightener and blow dryer. In comes this product, it is definitely worth the price. I use it along with heat protector on my hair prior to applying the flatiron. It leaves my hair relaxed, frizz-less, and naturally straightened. I can use this product the same way when blow drying it to style or straighten.
I do find that I need more than a pea sized drop for my entire head. I use about 6-10 pea sized drops per styling session. My hair is thick and curly, so that I need a pea size per section of my hair. This amount does not leave my hair greasy whatsoever. In fact, it leaves my hair smooth and nourished. The cost is $25 for 7 oz. At Ulta, you can use the $3.50 off $10 coupon. I think that the product is sold cheaper at Target. It will take you a while to get through the tube.
I highly recommend this product to those with THICK, COURSE, WAVE/CURLY HAIR. I purchased the small size to test out and now larger size tube.
PS Some people were commenting on two different formulas. I can't tell the difference from the tube. Message me if you know how to. But if I buy it in the store, I noticed that the correct formula has more pastel green, pastier,and thicker formula. I think the writing in the back is in French verses English. Not sure. Just get the thick formula.

My hair is quite curly and highlighted with bleach and is frizzy. I use a pea sized amount from where the highlights start (they're growing out so there's a good 5 inches of virgin hair colour which never gets as frizzy and i don't use this on the virgin hair) and comb through with a wide toothed comb. On the whole, I let my hair air dry naturally and this eliminates the frizz completely. I did my first blow dry using it yesterday and, again, it was soft, manageable and with almost no frizz. I'd say for those with dry, curly, coarse or frizz prone hair - this is a great product. Just don't use more than a pea sized amount as a little goes a long way. It is expensive at £25 for 7oz but worth it. As to packaging, it comes in a tube although I don't buy or not buy a beauty or hair product based on packaging as I don't care if they're ugly as hell to look at, so long as the product inside does the job.

Excellent product. A trick is to use a tiny amount. It will leave your hair shiny, soft, and healthy looking.

This is truly a great product...just not for my fine, thin hair. It makes my wavy/frizzy hair sleek, shiny, and smooth and super easy to flat iron. However, even if I use the tiniest amount (1/4 a pea sized drop), my hair gets greasy and flat within a few hours.
If you have thick, coarse hair, I could see this being an excellent product. Just make sure you use the tiniest amount, even on thick hair...a little really goes a long way. And, yes, it is expensive but, considering how little you will use, a large-sized tube could last for years.
