This product is really hit-and-miss! Despite all the mineral oil and petrolatum, it's light enough that it works great for *some* but not-so-great for *others.* I think that's because it's basically a low-moisture sealing treatment.
Anecdotally, in my childhood when my hair was finer, often processed, and required less moisture than it does now, it appeared to work a little better to make it more manageable. Now I have healthy but thick, low porosity 4a (tightly coiled curl pattern) hair which needs all the moisture this product utterly fails at locking in (even when I try to layer it over others). Meanwhile, my mother's thinner, relaxed hair loves this stuff to death! It somehow makes *her* hair soft, shiny, and smoother, yet not particularly greasy. I don't think much has changed about this stuff over the years, either.
If your hair is very low porosity &/or needs help absorbing all the moisture it can get. If you are particularly high or low porosity (basically everybody with curly hair except those few in between, lol), this is *not* the product you want.
If your hair is relaxed (chemically straightened), heat-treated, or in need of a *standalone* product to lock *out* moisture (anti-frizz), this might be the right thing for you.
If the package advertising was accurate I'd have at least given this product a 3/5 overall, but it basically claims to be everything for everybody, and that's not cool at all.

do not buy this crap or any of its other brands , im not black but i use this on my hair and been using it for years , was wondering why my hair would not grow and now i know why , it also makes your hair dry , dust and gives you split ends , i have to keep cutting my hair more than 3 inches but i will never touch this brand again. its going in the trash , for all of you that wants to put oil moisterizers in your hair dont do it! it just sits on your hair , leaving it to rip the natural moister out and dry out your hair. use a serum , like nexxus , this brand is crap.

The smell was horrific. It smells like STRONG, bad perfume and the smell DOES NOT come out no matter how many times after you wash your hair.I tried covering the smell with perfume, and scented lotion....but no matter what I did I smelled like this horrible Pink Luster crap. I think it took a week of washing my hair and not using this for the scent to be gone.
Never will I ever buy this God awful crap again.

So I just use this product after drying my hair to get the fly aways down. I use a little bit on the palms of my hands and rub them together and run my hands through my hair. I make sure to put a little bit more on the ends, but not too much because than my hair will look oily and gross. It works really well it moisturizes and softens my hair and the fly aways go away. I don't think I use the product like you're suppose to but it works for me. Better than spending a lot of money on John Frieda Frizz ease products that don't work as well for me. It does smell a little weird, but it's not a big deal.

This time, even I must agree with the others. This product sucks! I have mid back length 3b, 3c and 4a part ethnic curls which are dry, frizzy and coarse, and this product did nothing to treat any of these problems. This product is based on melted petroleum jelly and as such, it coats the hair, actually preventing moisture from coming in. On my hair, the results were a waxy, non-shiny mess. On the other hand, I'm not a 'natural products only' junkie and am well aware that there some very moisturizing and nourishing non natural hair moisturizers out there, such as the one I prefer to use on my hair. These are thick, nourishing moisturizers loaded with moisturizing ingredients(glycerin, various oils such as olive oil/coconut oil, etc.). Do yourself a favor and look for these moisturizing ingredients in the product, look for thickness of texture, and steer clear from coating ingredients and ingredients which may provide temporary shine but are stripping and drying in the long run. Your hair will thank you by being so healthy, it shines from within.

Once I stopped putting this crap in my hair it actually grew past shoulder length. This junk adds nothing of nourishing quality to hair. My hair is now bra strap length, I keep it off my shoulders, out of my face and use mostly natural ingredients in it. Most of the products (gel included) aimed at black women are of no use or quality. Do yourself a favor and do more research into natural products that will benefit you and your hair because this is not it. MUA should really consider a 0 star option.

I'm soo surprised by all the bad reviews! I'm caucasian, with bleached platinum blonde hair, and I LOVE this stuff... like so much, that I would buy stock in the company and even do commercials for them if I could lol. Usually I avoid products with alot of 'fillers' and non-natural ingredients, but this stuff WORKS so I stick with it. My hair isn't typical white girl hair though, its naturally very fine and dry, compound that with bleaching the crap out of it, and you've got yourself a hot mess. Enter: Pink oil moisturizer. It literally seals in moisture and keeps my hair healthy and shiny. I refuse to heat style (too damaging), so I get my hair straight by roller setting my hair in large rollers when its wet (my hair's naturally wavy). I wash my hair with Pantene conditioner, rinse out about 75% of it, then run the Pink oil stuff through it before putting it in rollers. It comes out shiny, bouncy and gorgeous. This product is definately a keeper for me... but different products work different on everyone! I basically use it as a 'setting lotion' to control frizz and seal in moisture when I put my wet hair in rollers. I'm not impressed by the mineral oil content, but it's taken me years to find something that tames my hair so I'm not gonna shun it cause of that! :)

I'm amazed by all the bad reviews for pink oil. I use it as a sun protectant and frizz tamer/leave-in conditioner for my hair. It works great, not leaving it smelly, greasy, or frizzy. It's the perfect amount to weigh down the frizz and big hair look I get in humid weather. It works great to coat and protect my hair before swimming or beach going as well.

I agree with all the negative comments about pink oil but I will say that the smell of this stuff makes me nostalgic. It brings back memories of getting my hair done, listening to my aunt complain about me being tender-headed, hot combs, beads and braids, and tinkerbell peel off nail polish. I would not use pink oil on my hair (anymore) but whenever I get a whiff it takes me back.

I remember using this stuff back in high school (on relaxed hair) and throwing it out because it made my hair CRISPY!!!
Now I wouldn't dream of using it on my natural hair....what for, so it can dry up, fall out, and blow away like tumbleweed?!
I recommend this to NO ONE. This product's name is a misnomer....it's called a moisturizer but it doesn't! Stay far, far away from this product! Like other reviewers, I'd give it a big, fat ZERO if I could and I'll NEVER buy it again!
If you need a moisturizing lotion, try BB Oil Moisturizer or ORS Olive Oil Lotion....both much better than this CRAP.

I wish I could give a 0 for this and select "Never" instead of "No" on the repurachase question. It's some mess. Every ingredient and filler that dry/curly/wavy hair DOESN'T need, dumped into liquid wax and mineral oil to coat the finest of strands. I blame growing up with this, Blue Magic and other bad practices as primary culprits for the delayed start to healthy hair and measurable progress.

Ah the days of curly perms and wet looks! Those days are over and so should this product be. It wasn't all that when we had those looks and today its even worse on natural unprocessed or relaxed hair. The pink color is off putting for one, the smel isn;t that bad but acts as a laughable nasal throwback to anyone who lived through the 1980's.
There are far better prodicts out there that work better, smell better and moisturize better.

This is the Jennifer Lopez of hair products. Everybody and their mama has experienced it and claim to hate it, but most people I know have a bottle in their cabinets and go to it when nothing else will work. ;-)
Yes, it's heavy and tends to smell waxy(1 lippie off for the scent). But it's just about the only product that I've found to detangle and moisturize my daughter's natural, bra strap length, thick as 5 heads, 4a/b hair simultaneously. I'm just cautious with it as I would be something with high levels of coating materials in it(petroleum, silicone, shea butter, etc.) and make sure to wash once a week and do a deep condition afterwards. For the record, my daughter's hair is very healthy and experiences less breakage and tangles when using this product. And this is from someone who has tried *EVERYTHING* on myself and my daughter from high end, drug store, grease, Aveda, etc. I've also tried "all natural" and while it's great that it's natural, unfortunately, it doesn't work as well as the stuff with all the bad for you chemicals.
Unlike others, I will repurchase.

the stuff smells awful & weighs hair down, but atleast it provides shine

This product should be banned. First, the scent can be smelled from a mile away- and gets STUCK in your nasal hairs! aaarggh!!! Second, it is a horrible, gummy, sticky, lint collecting, pink mess that coats the hair and weighs it down. Could only justify using it for a sleek ponytail when hair is still wet. Even then, I'd rather use Vaseline, kerosene, anything...oh, just forget it.

First I wanna thank my sister for leaving 2 big bottles of this crap in our bathroom as she ran off to live in Europe. Pretty much this stuff is just a big bottle of pink colored grease. It smells awful and lasts for all eternity because it a liquid petroleum by-product! (mineral oil)
It took me forever to use of this stuff. I used it in my hair and it was a b*tch to wash it all out. This mess left a coating so I usally had to wash my hair more than once. I've also used a few drops on a squeeky kitchen cabinet door and on the side of my car tires just to get rid of it! Trajectly this stuff looked better on my car tires than it ever did in my hair!
I do not recommed this to anyone but car washers to use on car tires! Try Carol's Daughter products instead. The Hair Milk, Hair butter, or Hair Balm are made from pure and natural almond oil, shea and cocoa butters.

Garbage. Literally nothing but mineral oil, water and that putrid fragrance. Gives the ILLUSION of moisture, when it's really sucking the life out of your hair. I remember using this crap by the globs daily, wondering why my hair never grew. Black women need to file a mass lawsuit against Luster's for damages and for producing such a horrid and pathetic product. Boooooo!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Sensitive, Dark Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
This product HAS to be a joke! I remember using it when I was younger -- hoping, wishing, and praying that it would give me hair like the little girls in the ads and on TV. Man puh-leeez! This "moisturizer" only made my hair a oily mess. My hair became limp and the smell was atrocious. I encourage all African-Americans to step away from this horrid product.

What in the heck were our mothers thinking when they subjected our hair to this? And to think at some point I must have liked using this. I was so brainwashed. I know when I was a kid/teenager this was a staple in just about every home. This has to be THE greasiest, heaviest hair oil ever made. Stay away. You have been warned.
