this product is really expensive and doesn't really deliver everything it promises. It was great for my hair in the first few months but over a while made my hair greasy looking and just limp. A product that is much better is Kerastase oleo curl creme.

I like this product. It smells nice and leaves my hair softer and shinier.
I add a few drops of jojoba oil to a generous amount of the glossing cream and work it through the ends of my hair to tame the dryness/frizziness that never seems to go away. None of this pea-sized nonsense for me, I need at least double that to get through my huge mass of curls. But once I'm done, my hair feels a thousand times more resilient and looks less messy. If you need major moisturizing, I seriously recommend adding a few drops of jojoba oil (or whatever other oil you prefer), it makes a world of difference. Those with normal hair can probably just use this product on its own and be completely satisfied.
It's a bit pricey, and there are probably other products out there that will do the job for less. But I like the creamy consistency of this since a lot of other shine products tend to just look greasy. I don't have to worry too much about losing volume with FF Glossing Cream. And I like that it has a nice, subtle scent that doesn't compete with my perfume. All in all, it's a good buy and I've repurchased this several times already.

This gives shine and temporary help with frizzies. Its okay, nothing to write home about. You get a lot of product in one tube so I can't imagine running out of this for a long time. I don't think I will repurchase.

Since I take showers at night, I am usually terrified of putting any product whatsoever into my hair for fear of breaking out. This cream is the only product I will add to my hair before I go to bed. I bought the small bottle and I literally use less than a pea size amount and apply it to the ends and work it up through the shaft of my hair. It leaves it hydrated, smooth and shiny. I wake up the next morning with beautiful hair.

I have horrible hair. It's fine, dry, frizzy, and I have tried everything in the world to fix it. Anything, nothing will fix it, but this stuff makes it shiny and manageable, and if I also flat iron it; my hair is actually beautiful for a day! I just use a quarter-sized drop for my long hair when it's towel dry and that's it.
I've already repurchased this 3 times. Don't use too much of it at once, or your hair will look greasy. A little goes a long way. HG for me.

A little goes a long way. Smooths out fly-aways. Moisturizes dry and brittle ends. Hair shines and is soft to the touch post-application.
Rub the product in palm and fingers, then work through hair, starting with the ends.

Works great to combat frizzies and make hair smooth and silky. If you want body in your hair, I do not suggest this. I have fine hair, but a lot of it (so my stylist says) and this just makes me smooth and straight - and I use mousse with it as well. It might not interfere with the mousse so much if I did not use it on my damp hair as well as my dry hair. I like to use about 1/2 pea size on my short angled bob while my hair is towel dried.....then I apply mousse.......blow dry...then finish with another 1/2 pea size as well as my "mess up" pomade. I love the results......shiny, straight, smooth......

I love this stuff. I have pretty thick hair and without this my hair is a frizz mess after an air dry or blow drying. After using this I am always told my hair look soooooo shiny. I am not a fan of the shampoo or conditioner but I have been using this stuff for years. Please note that a little goes a long way. I used a tad too much a few times and my hair was heavy and greasy looking - and by too much I mean about a tablespoon size for shoulder length hair.

I've been using this for years and am in love with it. Makes my hair silky and shiny. Not too heavy for my fine hair either, which is a huge plus. I will continue to use this for the long run for sure = )

My favorite hair product ever! I've been using it every time I dry my hair for almost 3 years and only bought my second small bottle recently. I just put a dab of this in my hair when they're wet and style them with the blowdryer and flat or curling iron and they feel soft and look shiny. The only thing is I wouldn't recommend the big bottle cause after like a year if you still have some product the olive oil and the cream separate so it's kind of messy. You just shake it and it works just the same but like i said it's not that clean. Oh and i have morrocanoil and macadamia oil but they don't work for me because i feel that they stay on the surface of my hair and make it greasy and fry when i iron it. Hope I convince some of you to try this product :)

i love this product! i use it everyday! its pretty expensive but if you buy the big one it lasts forever. i've had mine for over a year and its about halfway full. it makes my hands glittery but i love the smell and feel though i never see any enormous difference but i love it anyway.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Dry, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Hazel
the product made my hair smell nice and feel silky smooth. i liked this product, but was a little too greasy for me. ive used other shine and gloss products that arent as greasy as this one, but its not a bad product.

After using, my hands look like they have glitter on them. A little goes a long way, but if you use too much, your hair looks very oily. It does make my hair shiny, though.

I've been using this product for years. I love the smell and it leaves my hair so silky and shiny. I use it when my hair is slightly damp and then blowdry or let it air dry. Cuts down on the frizz significantly. If i blowdry, my hair is super silky and straight. If I airdry, the wave is not frizzy but more beachy and defined. If you heat style, it makes your hair even more silky and shiny. A little goes a long way so be careful to not use too much or your hair will look greasy. I got my boyfriend on this stuff too after they discontinued Sebastian's laminates gel. Gives a nice flexible, shiny finish to his naturally curly hair. I will continue to always have this product in rotation in my routine.

I received a travel-sized bottle of this as an employee gratis, and kind of shrugged at it, because I'm not much of a hair person. I mean, I'm a bleach and dye the holy-living hell out of it kind of hair person, but product? No. But I tried it one day on a whim, and I gotta say, I like what it did. My hair has a habit of looking rather dull, and a tiny amount of this really helped bring in some shine, and it makes the hair slightly softer to the touch.
I use the package-directed pea-sized amount on the very tips of my fingers AFTER I've blow-dried my hair, tapping it in at about mid-shaft and quickly, lightly dragging it down. Finished up by popping whatever is left on my fingers up into the top, which never needs as much help as the rest.
Remember, though, hair product is NOT one-size fits all. If you have ultra thick hair, you'll probably have to do this in sectioned layers, using a bit more product -- I would, if I didn't have the back and sides of my scalp buzzed. For thin or fine hair, it would probably take less than a pea size. Just keep playing with it til you get the right amount.
My only gripe about the product is the cost... it's a little steep for my liking. The amount you get will last FOREVER, so it is still a good buy, but it's one heck of a chunk to throw down in advance, if you're not really into hair. Still, once my little trial tube runs out, I'll more than likely pick up a larger one with my discount, because it really does help improve the look and feel of my hair.
Of course, even though I got it for free and I work at BBW, I mean what I say here. If I didn't like it, I'd just keep my mouth shut :P

I don't heat style my hair, and I used this as a leave in conditioning product on both wet and dry hair, and wasn't impressed with it. It has little shiny particles in it that come off on my hands when I run my hands through my hair, which is kind of annoying, but it seems to leave my hair looking dull and coated instead of shiny. Perhaps using heat would bring out the shine, but it doesn't say you have to heat style your hair for it to work. I also find it too concentrated, so that it's hard to spread through the hair properly. Even a little bit on dry hair makes my hair look greasy. I would say it helps somewhat with frizz, but not a lot. I do appreciate that they sell a generous sample size, so you can give it a good trial to see if you like it. I wish more companies would do that.

The Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Cream with Olive Oil worked better for me when used as an anti-frizz product rather than a glosser - on DRY hair.
When I used it post-shower on wet hair, the frizz was lessened but my hair was left a bit limp and lifeless. And this was using EXACTLY the 'pea-sized' amount recommended. I saw no added shine, despite the addition of Mica particles in the product.
Perhaps it's preponderance of oils in this styling cream? The 2nd ingredient is Dimethicone, the same ingredient found in make-up primers. There are various oils and paraffin waxes in this product which may account for why this weighs my hair down.
~ Re: PANTHENOL. Interestingly enough, there's no Panthenol in this product. Products with Panthenol work better on my hair type. (Nearly all the Pantene line-up - Shampoos, Conditioners, Styling Treatments AND Deep Treatments - contain Panthenol high up on the ingredient list. Most high-end lines contain it. Pantene is one of the few drugstore lines that uses Panthenol.)
Someone with really dry, very thick hair would probably get better results from this product. It's not inexpensive, but you need to use such a small amount that the 4 oz. tube may last you a long time, even with regular use. It's a nice product to have on hand but I probably won't be buying it again as I had mixed results using it.

The only reason I would not repurchase this for myself is because it is not meant for my hair type. I LOVE this stuff, and I would definitely purchase it for anyone with thick, coarse, or unruly hair. I love the texture of this, so glossy, it adds an enormous amount of shine, and smells light and heavenly! But, alas, I am going to have to stick to eating my olive oil, since this is too rich for my short fine hair.

i got this today and this is what i think of it
i have NEVER been amazed from a hair product
im more of a skin care high end junkie (la prairie,la mer,sisley,chanel) then a hair product junkie,its just that i'v tried alot of high end hair products ( Kérastase,paul mitchell,alterna) and they never WOWED me
so i just use my regular john frieda (witch i love) and redken products
but still im not that amazed from them but im happy with it
now i live in israel and here we make the "moroccan oil" products witch the whole world raves about
but still sorry i dont think its that amazing product
so anyway back to this product
it is the MOST AMAZING THING I HAVE EVER TRIED!!!
it makes my hair SUUUUUPER SHINY and SOFT like i can't belive!!!
it is my HG hair shine cream
i just use 2 "pea" size amounts for my sholder lenght hair
i use it on dry hair every morning before i go out
i would discribe it as this....
you know when you come from the beach and your hair just looks amazing? or when you go to the salon for a blow out and the hair looks alot better the next day when the natural oils come out?
then thats what this does it just gives (like its name) a super gloss effect and super shiness and softness thats second to none
now after that i raved about this cream ill also fact what its not....
its not for ppl who want a mosturizing cream (be cause its not)
and it is some what oily (but just a bit) so that could be a problem for ppl who have a problum with that
very very RECOMED THIS!!!
sarai from israel :-)
*TIP.....if you are like me (wavy hair) what i found is this...
if you go with your natural hair style then put it on when the hair is damp (about 30 min after washing your hair)
if your straightning your hair DONT PUT IT ON AFTER YOU DID
put it on before straightning (on damp hair) and then work with an iron or blow drier.
that way it wont look oily and still have that amazing shine
