        This stuff....I never want to live without it again. If your hair stylist always uses the razor to thin your hair and tells you that you have enough hair on your head for 4 people....this stuff is for you! I use this everywhere but my roots and it keeps my hair de-frizzed, tangle free, and accepting to styling for days after using (I only wash my hair 2x a week). You NEED this in your life.

            Comments about Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Oil:

            I LOVE this oil! I just started using it and notice a huge difference--my ends feel much more hydrated and silky, and overall my hair is much smoother. I use a tiny bit (mostly just use whats on the outside of the dropper) and apply it when my hair is wet to damp, concentrating on the ends and use what's left everywhere else. I also think it's great the day after you wash applied to ends to give them some added silkiness.

                I am old and so is my hair, thus it needs gentle and effective products. This really has been the most effective so far, though it only lasts like 12 hours.
