Smile Sealing is great...even for low porosity

I never thought sealing would work for me because every time I tried it, I would get a greasy mess that never absorbed. However, today, I tried it with a lighter oil, apricot, and only used three drops on my wet hair after shampooing, leave-in conditioning, and styling. My hair has been annoying lately because it's been getting dry, droopy, and undefined, but after sealing, it's soft, curly, and not frizzy! I definitely recommend it!

I got it at Whole Foods
Other oils could be bought at any grocery store, though, like sweet almond, coconut, or olive

UPDATE....
Oh my god. I tried this again to see if maybe it was just a one time thing, but my hair is even better today! It's full of soft, defined, moisturized ringlets, and my curl pattern that was drooping to maybe 2b is now a definite 3a!

Do you focus on the ends or distribute throughout? Have you had more luck with the apricot oil or with the argan oil in your siggy?
