Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the $ This product is definitely better than other hair oils. The fragrance is wonderful and the texture isn't greasy. It softens my hair without weighing it down. I have fine, slightly wavy hair in a slightly layered cut and I just apply essence absolue after the shower and let it air-dry. The cost of this product makes me uncomfortable, but it's truly worth the investment. I really do find it's superior to other oils, which leave my hair greasy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for coarse, dry, curly hair I have been using this product for years as a finishing treatment. It leaves my hair soft, controls frizz. I love that it is not a strong-hold product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect amount of oil This does not leave your hair oily and smells great. Love it before blow drying my hair. I have lots of thick straight hair and it's great when I apply it when my hair is damp and then blow dry and straighten.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Leaves hair soft & smells amazing! This product makes my hair feeling so soft even after all the colouring and blow-dry heat that it goes through. The oil is so hydrating. Sometimes when my hands are dry, I'll even rub it on them. And it has an AMAZING smell too. The one drawback is the price. I'm on a student budget and it's not something I can buy often.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product made my hair very shiny and very soft. Love love love this product! Sometimes I used it as a pre-wash before shampooing. And you do not need a lot of the product to do the trick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing... After the first time I tried this oil, I threw all the other oils I had spent a collective fortune on, in the garbage. Buy it. You will not be disappointed. Use it on damp hair before drying, add it to conditioner, work it into dry ends during the day and apply liberally as an overnight treatment. Now I am worried it will be discontinued....may buy a few to store....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent product This is a must-have item if you have frizzy hair. It will not weight down your hair and no residue at all. It seems expensive but only a dab of oil will work fine with medium length hair. Sure will buy again when mine runs out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HG Status I do not any purchased items unless I find it to be exceptional - this hair oil is beyond exceptional. I have tried many brands, from drugstore to high end, but none delivers like this product. I recently dyed my hair so that the bottoms were intensively bleached. If you have ever bleached your hair, you know that touching your hair feels similar to petting straw pieces. I always look for products to not only nourish my hair and make it look healthy, but it also needs to feel healthy and smooth. I use this product after it has been blow dried or naturally air dried. It makes my hair soft to the touch and shiny! The difference between my natural hair and my bleach-dyed hair is not noticeable - it is amazing!! It does all this without weighing down my hair or making it look greasy. I would highly recommend this product to anyone who wants their hair to be shinier, softer, or appear less damaged. AMAZING! Please do not EVER discontinue this product!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This oil is magic I am utterly smitten with this oil - I started using it about 4 months ago, and I feel like my hair ends are substantially healthier, plus it's not heavy, and not that smelly so it's not distracting. There is no comparison between this oil and moroccan oil that I was using prior - I will ONLY use this oil going forward, it's totally worth the cost. I have very fine hair, but lots of it, and use 3 squirts on freshly washed hair, and anticipate that my bottle will last me about 8-9 months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A year of amazing hair! I bought a bottle a year ago and this oil has worked its magic every day since! I have never felt great about the look of my hair when it is down (thicker, curly, dark) but using this oil has changed that perspective and I have never had so many compliments. It has a beautiful smell, and my hair has a sheen that is natural and texture that is light. To say it changed my life, well, it changed my hair's life! Now onto a new bottle!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! I tended to use so many styling products, until my stylist recomended this product!.. It transformed the texture and the look, and feel of my hair to a lush velvety touch! I get compliments all the time on how my hair looks and feels! And smells wonderful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible product I've had this bottle for over a year now, I use it daily. I've used it after running outside and sweating at the gym to soften the dried ends. I've used it to tame frizz for my crazy curls, and as a serum for straightening. My favorite use is as a deep conditioner overnight treatment, I divide my hair into four sections apply one pump to each section comb or brush through and leave in overnight. In the morning my hair is so soft and healthier looking.
