Most Helpful Positive Review Hydrating.
I wanted an oil that I could use once in a while to battle itchy scalp. Clarifying products really over dry my scalp and hair. I thought an oil must do the trick.
I applied directly to my scalp, combed through, tied in a low bun, and wore a ball cap for "heat treatment" until the end of the day. The oil is heavy and slightly sticky, however once I washed my hair/scalp, everything was 10 times better. My scalp hasn't itched for days, no more build up, my hair is shiny, I have less frizz, and my ends are smooth.
I am not going to use everyday because it does have an unwashed look but this oil will remain in my hair care arsenal.
Most Helpful Critical Review Extremely bummed
I write this with full intention of an edit, as I will try again using a lot less product. I used other scalp products by TMC and adored them, and with the reviews I didn't think I'd have a problem with this one. First off, it smells amazing and the bottle is great for application. Though, it left my hair incredibly greasy and weighed down on the roots and scalp. I'm curious to know how the other reviewers are using this product, but unfortunately I can not "style as desired" after application. I rinsed it out though it says not too, and I'm still in a grease pit over here. I'll have to wash my hair again today (nooooo) because of this. I can't not comprehend the "daily use" and "lightweight" comments made against this product.

Makes scalp VERY greasy

Says to use directly on scalp but it made my hair horribly greasy! Used once & will not use again.
Good for 2A-3A fine hair
blondie from California
I read the reviews and was a little skeptical of the oil being really greasy on my 2B/2C fine hair. and it's not. it is lightweight and I only use about 4 drops and then the excess that is at the tip when I close it. I've been using it for a couple of days now and it hasn't made my hair look greasy or gross looking (if you're heavy-handed with the product it might look greasy so I suggest not using a lot of oil). and it smells like citrus! and I know it'll last a while!
Hair feels healthy but greasy
LMD from Ohio
The product description says it won't make your hair greasy and that is a big fat fib. I have medium thick long hair and my hair was greasy root to tip. It felt healthy but you can't leave the house without your hair up.
Love love love!

Works on my frizzy curly hair and smells divine.
love this product
Panda from Wilmington, DE
Usually use this product after I get out the shower and put my hair up or before I go to bed. Love it!

I love this product - I have DRY, dyed and heat processed hair. I use this when I need that "wet" luscious look! A little bit goes a long way!
My Number 1 Hair Oil Go To
SP from Houston, TX
I love this product. It is my number 1 go to and I highly recommend it.
Love this on my Natural Fro
90211 from CA
I love this product. I wished I found it when I was relaxing. I had an itchy scalp after doing the big chop cutting off my relaxed hair and going natural. Figuring out how to be natural.
I really love the smell and the oil goes a long way. My scalp was itching and I found a perfect oil to encourage me to oil my scalp as I rarely ever did. My new afro curls are defining, strong, and beautiful. The oil sinks in and it's not sticky and give my scalp a soothing and clean feeling. Did I mention it smell great!?
I feel the naysayers who are complaining about this don't have natural African or thick hair and of course you will find it too oily. It should be if you aren't rocking black hair and scalp. This is a product for black hair and it does it's job!
Not for my fine hair
Katie from Michigan
I've been dealing with an itchy scalp, and thought this may be a good solution. Unfortunately I think it's just a bit too much for my scalp and skin in general. It's possible I added too much, but I ended up just washing it out anyway. I'll be returning, but I loved the smell!
Ally from Seattle Washington
I have super thick hair and I have trouble getting it really long, so I bought this product and hopes that it would help. It seems to be working and it smells great but it's so greasy I can't use it during the day I have to use it at night and sleep with it in my hair and since I shower at night I can only use it maybe once a week or I wont be able to leave the house
Great oil to massage into scalp before bed!
Sncccc from Georgia
I was skeptical about buying this oil but I wanted to try it because so far every The Mane Choice product I've bought I absolutely love. And this is another one to love! The oil is so soft on the scalp and a little goes a long way! Plus it smells DELICIOUS. Its not sticky or tacky like most oils I've used for hair growth. Although I just started to use this product, I'm excited to use it again and hope to see some hair growth.
i would definitely recommend !!
Alba from Danvers MA
I works like day and night only used the product for about 2 weeks now and my hair is finally passed my elbows!! my scalp is always super itchy and this really did the trick! the only thing is that it makes your hair look greasy but thats the point of using oil LOL i definitely recommend and I've only been using it on my scalp like its told but i know other people put it on their whole hair as well and they had great reviews. I have yet to try it that way as well!! NO REGRETS! ;)
Nb from Dallas
Broke out my scalp, made it red and inflamed and it smells strong like gas would not recommend this product !!
I would buy this product again!
Ruth from Bridgeview, Illinois
I use this product every time I finish showering. I detangle my hair, apply the oil to the scalp, and then style my hair for the day.
Soothing for scalp
Kylie from 20112
Helps keep my scalp moisturized and prevent itching. I ordered this product off the company's website back in April. The version I received from here looks different. The bottle from the site doesn't have the words Alpha on it. Although it has the same ingredients, Oz., and smell the version from this site is thicker in consistency.
LOVE THIS PRODUCT!
Kay from Charleston, SC
Easy to oil my scalp under a protective style.
Monique from TN
I used for a little while. Did not notice major hair growth. I did not repurchase because I did not think it was enough product for the price.
Callie from USA
Started using this for dry scalp and massages excess down my 3a curls and it did wonders for both.

nothing like it
Love love love
Moni from LA
This product is amazing. I have seen more fullness and the shine my hair has is amazing. It is an oil so a little goes a long way. I usually place a few drops on finger tips and massage it in my scalp.
Changed my hair for the better :)
Cat mom from Texas
This smells amazing! It is oily, but I like to use it overnight and wash it the next day. I've used it 3-4 times already and I can see a difference in my hair! It's much thicker & looks healthy🤩
alien 4 from Oklahoma
this will be good for other people but my head is too oily as is so this product is not for me...but I am NOT saying is a bad product just that for someone like me with natural extreme oily hair is not good to add much more oil.
Jess from Birmingham, AL
I use this product on my daughters and myself and it works well on all of our heads.
Irritated My Scalp
