I bought this product after using my sisters bottle for a week or so and really liked how manageable it made my hair. I have very fine, slightly oily hair that really lacks volume, unless I use volumising products specifically, or if it is very windy. The flip side to having super fine hair like mine is the tangles. So. Many. Tangles. Wake up in the morning? Rats-nest. Stormy outside? Snags. Brushing hair after a shower? Hah! That knot will separate from the brush only when scissors make an appearance. Enter Miracle Hair Treatment. A pump or two to towel dried hair and that brush is gliding, nay flying through my locks like Superman rescuing a falling Lois Lane. It makes my hair so soft and silky smooth, although it does build up over several days and causes my hair to become a bit dull, despite being washed daily. I bought a once-a-week clarifying shampoo that has taken care of that little problem. It doesn't do much to give me volume but it stops the humidity-frizz which is great since Auckland is practically a sauna this summer, 2016 will henceforth be remembered as the summer of 762% humidity.
I also love that it helps protect against chlorine and sun damage. Having spent several summers with my hair becoming victim to the dreaded green-chlorine stain, you can imagine my delight when I started using this product and stayed blonde despite many, many, many a trip to the pools.
Smells like HEAVEN. Oh my gosh I want to eat it or bathe in it, it smells that deliciously coconutty and tropical. Heck I would probably buy this product for the smell alone even if it didn't really do any of the 11 things it claims (for me, it noticeably does about 7, possibly 8). I get wafts of it all day long and I feel fresh and pulled together even if everything else is going to custard. Seriously, find some of this tropical delight and smell it for yourselves!
-Definitely adds shine, smoothness and softness to hair.
-Helps manage frizz and flyaways.
-Makes hair far more manageable and detangles even the gnarliest of snarls.
-Works as a heat-damage preventer. Great if you are a daily curler, straightener or blow-waver
-Protects against sun and chlorine damage. Always a bonus.
-Gives a dose of moisture to my dry ends if I have been a bit harsh with the blow-dryer or beach trips.
-Has helped with the breakage I used to get when brushing or styling. I am noticing far less split ends and broken hair shafts when brushing or just in general.
-Smells like heaven. I would shower in this stuff if possible.
-For me, this product doesn't really do all the 11 things it says it does.
-Doesn't really add to my hair's volume. If anything I would say it weighs it down a little, but that may just be me?
-Leaves a bit of greasy buildup after 3-4 days consecutive use. Get a good clarifying 1x week shampoo.
-Ingredients: it lists a number of silicones (which probably causes the dull build-up) and long sounding chemicals. I'm not anti chemicals, everything in existence is made of chemicals, but the ones in this product I am pretty sure are all synthetic and probably aren't the best for you health wise if you use this product every day for years on end. Who knows, I could be wrong.
