To be honest, I’m a bit frustrated. I received this treatment as a gift from my relative and was surprised when I learned the price, which is $40


Let’s try it, then.

Country of origin: the USA

Volume: 125 ml or 4.2. oz. Pretty generous, in comparison with other leave-in-treatments.

The bottle is very eye catching, but it depends.

The bottle is brown-green, there something oriental in it, in my opinion.

The treatment comes with a handy pump dispenser, that’s a big plus.


So, this treatment is supposed to cure my hair? Nice...Actually, I don’t believe that damaged hair might be improved by something except scissors.


Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Ethylhexyl Salicylate, Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane,

Tocopheryl Acetate, Isopropyl Myristate,

Parfum/Fragrance, Benzyl Salicylate, Coumarin, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Linalool, Hexyl Cinnamal, cl 61565, cl 26100, cl 60725, cl 47000.


There are silicones, but the treatment is paraben and mineral oil free. There are not so many natural ingredients, though. Two good oils can be found in the list, namely macadamia seed oil and argan oil.

I have nothing against silicones. My hair like them. I’d say, I even want more of them in this very treatment.

So, not enough silicones and not enough natural oils as well. But that’s just my opinion.

Consistency and fragrance:

I like that the oil is light-brown, it somehow makes us think the treatment is natural. The formula isn’t thick.

The treatment glides pleasantly between the palms. The scent is far from natural, though. It’s chemical but I like it.

How to use:

Dispense a small amount of oil on the palm of your hands and emulsify for a few seconds. Use on clean, towel dry hair or dry hair. Brush through for even distribution. Let hair dry naturally or blow dry

I apply this treatment after each hair wash, which is 2-3 times a week. I warm it between my palms and apply it onto towel dry hair, giving attention to the hair ends.


I’ve been using this so called miraculous oil for a month now. Do you think it cured my hair? Not even close! The effect lasts till the next hair wash, and honestly, the result is far from amazing. No better than a regular cheap leave-in-treatment.

I don’t think it made my hair softerPlus, the treatment doesn’t make frizzy hair smooth.

Hair ends look neat, but that’s just an appearance of health.

The product isn’t worth its price. Buying such a pricey treatment, one expects a better result. It has to be shockingly gorgeous to justify its price.

I don’t think this oil would be good for damaged or porous hair.


  • Eye-catching design, good pump dispenser and pleasant fragrance
  • Easy to apply
  • Doesn’t make dry hair heavy. But what would this treatment do to oily hair, I wonder.



  • The ingredients are far from natural
  • The product is really overpriced
  • The effect is hardly noticeable.

Not recommended! I would never repurchase even a smaller bottle of this treatment!
