I see the other two reviews on here were negative, but mine is quite the opposite. I have tried so many different products for my hair it isn't funny. My hair isn't quite coarse, but it's very think and very curly. If I don't use any product in my hair at all it looks as if my head is surrounded by a fog of frizz. I have my own atmosphere, basically. It's bad. I bought this not really expecting much out of it, but I was really attracted by the minimal ingredients. The first time I tried it I put waaayyy too much in my hair, causing it to feel thick and sticky. They really MEAN use a quarter sized amount. Generally when hair products say this I ignore it because of how thick and ridiculous my hair is, but this stuff is very thick and creamy and goes a long way. The second time I used it was better by far. I even blow dried my hair and the frizz was hardly noticable. All in all, I love this stuff to bits. It doesn't have a smell at all, which is nice. It's cheap. The ingredients are minimal and fairly natural. I don't have to use much of it for it to work. I would recommend this product to those with thick, curly hair like mine. EDIT! 08/12/12 Still using this! But now I mix it with a couple drops of jojoba oil and my hair LOOOOVES it. I would recommend you apply this product when your hair is damp. Since mine is so curly I never brush it and I've never had a problem with it feeling sticky or strange (aside from the very first time I used it) which I think is because my hair is so naturally dry.

Jojoba oil is the best thing I have ever done for my skin (aside from not using conventional face wash and moisturizers). My skin is pretty sensitive, especially on my face, and this oil makes it feel heavenly. About five drops is enough for my entire face and neck. I basically slather this stuff all over my body and boy, does it feel awesome. The smell is actually pretty nice, too. Kind of like sesame oil with a hint of fruit. I've tried coconut and olive oils, but jojoba wins hands down. I would recommend at least trying this if you have oily skin. Jojoba is light, as far as oils go, and if you take a minute to massage it into your skin you'll be good to go. GIVE THIS A TRY! You won't regret it.
