Bought the option for 'Dry/Rough Hair' - Used more than recommended as my blnd hair is highlighted and very very frizzy. This worked like magic. I'm actually astonished at the condition it brought to my hair as I didn't condition properly. I love it! Will be using this in place of serums as it isnt greasy or oily and really works like a moisturizer for very damaged, dry, frizzy hair.

I have tried quite a few leave-in treatments and this one is one of my favourites. I like that the product itself is more on the liquid side. Many leave-in treatments are too thick and heavy for my hair so it is rare to for me to come across a leave-in treatment that is light but still really moisturising. I really love the scent as well amazing! It also keeps the hair soft and moisturized.
However i find that the product works better in semi-dry hair rather than damp hair straight out from the shower. You need a very little amount (especially if you have fine and thin hair like me), if you use too much the hair will get oily which is the only con i can think of. It's a really good product compared to the price and i will recommend it for anyone! It is suitable for all hair types.

I am loving this product! I've got curly hair that I like to leave natural & wavy. This cream leaves my hair looking healthy, not greasy and eliminates my frizz.

This is a decent mid-range leave in cream if you need something to help tame your hair, particularly for the very reasonable price. I find it a little on the water-y side, and my hair remains frizzy after its use, I'd say it helps reduce the frizz by around 30%, I then need to add various oil and cold blow dry to get it to around 70% reduced frizz. There are better products out there, but this is very affordable, and I would expect it is very good for those with virgin (uncoloured) or already very healthy hair - the conditioning may be enough for those of you falling in that basket. If your hair is very dry, I'd suggest it may not be that helpful.

From the official website:

Are you worried about trying a hair oil? Now you can experience the nourishing feeling of Extraordinary Oil but in the lightness of a cream.

With 6 luxurious flower oils*, use it in the same way you would use an Extraordinary hair oil and discover a new daily beauty ritual.

What's your Oil-in-Cream ritual?

Apply a small amount onto wet or dry hair for hair that feels nourished with a luxuriously floral fragrance.

Apply a lollipop-sized amount evenly through the lengths and ends of your hair before blow-drying to help protect it from frizz and feeling dry.

Before shampooing, apply a generous amount throughout the hair, from root to tip. Massage the sumptuous cream into your scalp and leave for up to 5 minutes. Follow with Extraordinary Oil shampoo for luxurious nourishment.''

So, first off I don't use it as a pre-shampoo treatment since I have lots of hair and the tube would be gone in no time. I prefer actual oils like coconut or olive oil for that.

I have curly hair around 2c, bra strap length. What I do is wash and condition them, comb, apply some of this cream -around the size of half walnut- and wrap into a towel for 10' before frizziness kicks in. Then apply some hair gel, scrunch them a bit and apply the same amount of this cream as in the start to smooth everything out. I get well defined, frizz free curls this way. I use it on dry hair too if they become unruly or need some extra prep.

I also use it when wearing my hair straight but in this case I use it as a finishing product (I prefer a heat protectant when hair is still moist for that)

It's a yellow cream with thin consistency and spreads nicely withought weightnening the hair down or leaving them sticky/greasy as hair oils do sometimes. The tube is well made and 150ml cost around six euros. Don't expect it to be a heavy duty treatment though because you'll end up disappointed but it's also a multipurpose product and have really been enjoying using it.
