As a woman with fine hair that battles with oil control daily, I was very excited to try this product. First, the product is rich, thick, and easy to apply. I simply sectioned my hair and applied the pre-shampoo directly to the scalp throughout the sections. After leaving it on for 5 minutes, I continued to work it into my scalp by massaging it for a few moments before rinsing it n out and continuing with my shampoo routine as normal. I noticed immediate difference in the softness of my hair and also noticed a reduction in frizz as well as my scalp feeling cleaner and less irritated. I sadly did not see much of a difference in oil control. With that being said, I do suffer from moderate oily hair that requires me to wash my hair every other day at maximum and/or use a dry shampoo. Overall, the product offers a lot of positive attributes and my scalp health and hair softness are near the best they've been in years. I would overall recommend this product, but would caution additional oil control products may be needed.
Pros: scent, texture, use, eco-packaging
Cons: needs better application instructions, needs applicator tip
I received a sample size to test and review. First experience I enlisted my fiancé's help. Plot twist, he actually is a hair professional. We read the tiny print on the packaging and he meticulously applied the product to my scalp by separating each section of hair. The scent was amazing, I didn't feel any irritation during application or the time I left it on prior to the shower. Next day my hair was stunning! It felt clean, was super shiny, had great volume at the roots as promised. I did however develop some itching and scabbing on my scalp but I can't be certain if it is directly related or just Florida summer mosquitos.
Second application, I had received a nice flyer describing the benefits and proper application. Wow, we definitely used more than a gumball sized amount the first time around, and I have a tiny head! Oops! This time, I decided to DIY the way I would typically apply the product for myself. I squeezed the amount of a gumball sphere on it my palm and attempted to work the product in to my scalp using just my fingertips. Epic fail, the more I tried to get the product to the scalp, the more of a mess I made with my roots and top of my head. The rest I did as described, left it in then normal shampoo routine in the shower. My next day results were not the wonderful first time achievement (when my hair stylist fiancé applied with more product yet less grease pre-shampoo.)
I've determined this is a fantastic product conceptually but in execution, you need to treat it as a self-care routine and commit the time to doing it right. This isn't a quick-fix, it's luxury pampering! Taking the time to separate each section to access the scalp, and hopefully an applicator tip will really pay off! I'm not a hair professional so I was out of my Wella-ment ;)
This product is absolutely amazing for someone like me who hv dry hairs but greasy scalp, i notice i m not washing my hairs more often coz they feel fresh even for three four days
This is formulated with no silicones. I applied to dry scalp, left for 5 min, then massaged in and rinsed out. It made may hair feel soft, look healthier, and shinier. It did not help a lot with the oil though. My thin fine hair still had oil! It smells good but didn't really work for me.
I was really excited to use this. My first thought was the smell-it smells sooo good! I didn't really notice a difference in my hair or scalp when using this. Also, it was so hard and time consuming to apply because I have so much hair.
Over the years I have done a million and one things to my hair. But my scalp? My scalp has resented all the changes with only the traditional shampoo and conditioner until now. I had never really given the scalp the proper care and cleaning it deserves. This amazing product came to change the way I treat my scalp & hair care for ever. Overall it feels so much cleaner, healthier and I finally have hair volume without needing to blow dry my hair. I do love it!
