Comments about Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Dry Oil Mist:

I have used this product a few times, it is lightweight, has a very soft and pleasant smell and applies well to my ends. It is not a product meant to tame frizz, just an oil after your hairstyling. I like it but I am sure that there is a product out there that does the same for a lower price.

Comments about Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Dry Oil Mist:

I have fine, damaged hair that is colored. I try to minimize my heat styling but sometimes I just need to iron my hair to get rid of frizz. I have tried endless serums and smoothing creams but they just made my fine hair greasy and the silicones would just build up and cause breakage. This product is an oil but goes on very light and not greasy (unless you put way too much, two or three sprays to ends is plenty). I think it does have some silicone but not nearly as much as other products of its type. After styling,my hair just feels soft and smooth. The smell is a bit stronger than I like but I find it fades a bit so it is not overpowering. The only downside is the price but since it lasts a long time it is still cost effective and totally worth it. I want to try other products in the bamboo line now.

        Comments about Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Dry Oil Mist:

        I bought this in a boxed set that was on clearance. My favorite part about this is that it is a spray, much easier than getting your hands all icky with a serum. I just spray a few times, usually on dry hair, and then use my flat iron to smooth my wavy hair into submission. This works great. It looks a little bit oily at first, but after I style it, my hair never looks or feels oily. I think it sinks into my hair and conditions it. It has a light scent that fades. I recommend this product!

          Comments about Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Dry Oil Mist:

          My hair is naturally curly but I straighten it daily. It's also been dry and broken since it was double bleached in March to remove red hair color. I tried the Moroccan Oil since everyone makes a big fuss out of it but it did absolutely nothing for my hair. I use this oil while flat ironing and it not only adds shine, but makes my bad ends look normal.

            Comments about Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Dry Oil Mist:

            I use this every time I brush my hair out from the shower. It works well as a detangler for my looonnng hair and keeps my hair nicely slicked for the day (I wear my hair in a tight bun for work- not by choice). My hair is noticeably softer and shinier after I use it and even on the second day it feels luxurious and looks great. Also smells quite nice. My hair is fine but I have masses of it and it can get quite dry. I recommend it. I use it conjunction with argan oil for days I don't wash my hair and I have no complaints. I've had it for several months and I'm just now running out even through liberal use. However, I don't know about the styling aspect with blow-drying and other hot tools because I don't do any of them to my hair.

              Comments about Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Dry Oil Mist:

              This product was recommended to me by a friend. I was hesitant because I did not want my hair to appear greasy or limp. This oil provided great moisturizing for the ends of my hair, and shine, without making it limp. As someone who uses heat to style their hair, this helped to protect my hair from the heat and give it great shine. So, so happy. Other oils I have used are heavy and weigh my hair down. This product is not cheap - but Alterna products are not budget purchases.

              Comments about Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Dry Oil Mist:

              I use this product when I have my natural hair in protective styles; braids, bantu knots and twist. It is light enough to spray directly onto scalp, or in the hair daily. It allows for low manipulation styles to have sheen and great for dry scalp maintenance. I thought it was a little on the pricey side.

                      Spray liberally throughout damp hair prior to heat styling. It may be used on dry hair after heat styling to enhance shine.

                      This product is the lightweight counterpart to Bamboo Smooth Pure Kendi Treatment Oil (Item #: 2228630); it works great for fine to medium hair and won't weigh hair down or cause oiliness. For super fine hair, instead use Bamboo Smooth Kendi Oil Micromist (Item #: 2259736), the lightest-weight version. This product features a subtle botanical scent and is not heavily perfumed.
