Jan 23, 2012 - I bought this because I have a hard time finding a hair product that works well on dry hair; most of my leave-ins and products need to be applied to wet/damp hair. This was not the product for me. The texture is hard to distribute, no matter how much I try to emulsify it in my hands first, and I always notice little white flakes of product buildup later in the day whenever I apply this to my hair (which is obviously a big NO). It's not worth the trouble for me, because my hair always feels sticky and dry after application anyway. As a positive, the smell was very nice, so if it works for your hair, you shouldn't have to worry about an overpowering or unpleasant aroma. Sadly, it didn't work for me.

Jan 23, 2012 - I've never tried this as a hot oil treatment, but simply as a hair oil it was average. I didn't think it particularly moisturized or conditioned my hair, and the smell was bordering on medicinal -- not unbearable, but not as nice smelling as some other Carol's Daughter products I've used. Overall, it was mediocre. If I am using an oil, I prefer formulas by Philip B. and Moroccanoil.
Jan 23, 2012 - This has recently become a product staple for me. I love the greener, cleaner formulation that excludes the usual chemicals/sulfates/silicones as other products. The texture is great for my 3b/3c hair -- creamy, with slight hold (but not tacky or sticky). I usually layer it under a light gel to control frizz, but on good days -- if my hair is well-moisturized -- I can get away with using it by itself after washing. I usually detangle before using this, but as a leave-in conditioner it's fantastic (and very affordable!!).
