Does it cut down on frizz? Yes. I will say this is one of the few products I have ever used that I didn't totally hate how my air-dried hair looked. On a positive note, it smells amazing.The biggest gripe I have with it is not in the product itself, but in the packaging. The dropper is very ineffective. I don't know if the oil is too heavy for the type of product, or that the hole at the bottom of the dropper is too large. When you squeeze the dropper and pull it out of the bottle, you'd better be ready. Before you can squeeze the dropper to release the product, it is already coming out. If your hand isn't right there and ready, the product will leak out everywhere. At this price point, it's too expensive to waste. The first time I used it, it leaked all over the counter. And yes, I did wipe it off of the (clean) counter and put it in my hair. Plus, if you have long, thick, course hair like I do, you will need a full dropper-full of oil to use. With the packaging as is, it is near impossible to get a whole dropper full.Even with the price, I probably would have given it four stars. After my hair is dry, I still use a curling wand to add to my waviness. Using this product, though, has drastically cut down on the amount of hair I curl, and has eliminated my use of the flat iron over the top section (my worst frizz zone). Despite that, the horrid packaging took it down to three stars.

This is a review for the oil in the dropper bottle. I found that this made little difference to my hair. It was not strong enough to control frizz and did not smooth. I found it to be in no mans land and for the price, im not really impressed. I have had better success with Organix range and the Macadamia Oil range. I still prefer separate products for anti-frizz and glossing. I still go back to old faithful living proof. I have tried the shampoo in this range and its much better than this product.
