Rated 4.15 out of 5 stars
Most Helpful Positive Review Pleasantly suprised
I used it as a conditioner on on my dry curly hair and it actually works really well it was the first time that I didn't use any styling products on my hair and the curl actually kept just with the oil i used in the shower and as instructed combed my hair in the shower. The reason why I gave it four stars was because I spritzed it on my younger daughters curly hair thinking it would tame the frizz on 2 day old hair and it did nothing you could still see the frizz hanging high it was just shiny.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not worth the money (or in this case, the Ulta reward pts)
The best thing I can say about this product is that I don't think it damaged my hair. But it definitely didn't make any positive contributions. I have very curly hair and tried this product as a leave-in condition, as a refresher, and as a heat protectant. I did not notice any impact in the overall condition of my hair when the product was used as a leave-in. Perhaps my other hair care products are really good and so this did not add value above and beyond, but it certainly did not appear to add to the condition of my hair. The product was completely ineffective as a refresher. It did not reduce frizz or help control or tame my curls. The product was also completely ineffective as a heat protectant. My hair was much dryer and had less moisture when I blow dried it after applying this product than when I let it air dry. I could not tell that it did anything to protect my hair from the heat. Very disappointing performance, especially considering the price point. I used my Ulta Reward points to try this product so at least I'm not out any money, but sad that I don't have those points to spend on something else.

I tried it tonight for the first time. I have fine curly hair lots of it. I put 3 sprays into my palm rubbed them together then put it on the ends which are really dry. At first it did nothing in fact I was upset and wanted to wash it out. Then my toddler woke up from his nap. I forgot about it for about 20 minutes. Then something magical happened lol. My curls were shiny bouncy and more defined. I guess it needs to sit and penetrate into the hair. I'm glad I waited and didn't wash it out. It's really good!
Good hydration, but be wary of weighing down fine hair
MH from Dallas, TX
I should start by saying that I have fine hair with a very loose, wavy curl pattern. Despite that, my hair is extremely dry and in constant need of hydration. This oil is a super-hydrating oil, which I need; however, if I spray this on my ends wet or dry hair as directed and then style, I often have "oily" patches or hair that is weighed down and limp.
What I have started doing is using it as a pre-wash conditioning treatment, and oh my goodness it has made all the difference! I spray in 5-6 spritzes all over my hair (shoulder length) and work through with my fingers. (It's pretty oily and saturated at this point.) I give myself a quick scalp massage and then comb everything through one more time. Sometimes I wrap my hair in a warm towel but sometimes I don't...but I do wait 20 minutes to let my hair drink in the oil. Then it's into the shower to wash my hair and condition it, as usual. Before drying my hair, whether I let it do it's sort-of-curly-but-not-like-it-used-to-be thing (hello aging...) or blow it dry straight, I add just one spritz of oil to my palm and work it gently through the ends and only the ends. Apply styling products as usual and style. My hair is crazy soft. My ends are not dry and frazzled. And most importantly, it's not weighed down or oily at all!
This whole process takes about an hour, including the pre-shower treatment, so it's not something I do every time I wash my hair (which is only twice a week as it is). I do this once a week in the winter (usually my Monday morning wash) and once every other week in the warmer months.
As for cost, yes, it is a higher price point product, but I've had the same bottle for almost a year and I am finally to the point where I need to re-order. I think that's a pretty good deal if you amortize the cost over 12 months (yes, I am an accountant).
My Holy Grail Product!
Kylie from Michigan
This stuff is better than any other hair oil! Doesn't leave hair feeling sticky or oily, just super soft and shiny. I spray this on fresh curls, before bed, and in the morning to refresh and it makes a huge difference in how my curls last!

How you use this product is great either way.
Exactly what I wanted!
Ashley from Florence,KY
This was exactly what I needed for my curls and does a great job of scrunching out the crunch
The price is outrageous
Missdiva from New Mexico
I live the oil and not the price the bottle is small
OVERPRICED for bottle size
Missy 30 from new Mexico
I like how this spray hydrates my hair however the price is outrageous
I would give this 6 stars if I could
Jaime_Gee from MO
On clean, wet hair I spray six times into the palm of my hands, rub palms together and then rake the product through my hair. It really does banish all frizz in my fine wavy hair without weighing it down or making it look greasy. I thought it was too expensive, but the bottle lasts me about 6 months. I'm willing to pay the price since it works so well and lasts so long.
Good product but overpriced
Tara from Wyomissing, PA
It worked as it was supposed to, but not any better than other products half the price. I returned it.
Great oil for curls!
MrsLuna from Sinking Spring, PA
I usually use this Momongo oil as my last step when it's wash day! I spray it all over my damp hair and and scrunch! It makes my hair smells amazing and adds shine to my curls. I wish the bottle could be bigger as it's so expensive. I try to use it once a week only so that it can last!
Best product. Must have
Marissa from Philadelphia, Pa
I use this product every day! I use it when my hair is dry to give it that finished look. Helps with frizz , adds shine and makes each curl look that much better. I will not go a day without this, it is a must have for curly girls! Truly my favorite product on the market, and I've tried quite a few!
KatyK90 from Chico, CA
It's so good and I love it. I have very finicky hair, where it frizzes year around and I deal with psoriasis, eczema and rosacea. So finding products that are both okay for my skin and scalp is so hard, this is my holy grail. This hydrates my ends while also keeping my frizz in control and making my curls look so cute! I would defiantly recommend, but a little goes a long way!
Love this oil!
Erin B from Sarasota, FL
I have curly hair and I absolutely love this oil for scrunching out the cast after diffusing. It leaves my hair moisturized and frizz free, with a good amount of shine without appearing greasy. The smell is incredible as well, wish this scent came in a body lotion or perfume! I'm almost done with my first bottle and will be repurchasing.
My Favorite =)
Autumn Roze from TX
I love this on my hair. I'm on my second bottle and need another one. My first bottle I used by the directions... but then I got carried away and spray it directly on my hair. when I do that, I end up using a lot of product. nevertheless, this is my favorite product that doesn't weigh my hair down and makes me feel awesome seeing my curls.
LOVE LOVE LOVE
Margie from Orange County, New York
I loved the way this made my hair look and feel. I have very curly hair. I sprayed this in my hair and dryed it with the blower. I loved the softness and the flow my hair had. When I washed, sprayed and airdried, it was equally soft.
Good but pricey
Alejandra from Colorado
I love how it makes my hair feel but wish it wasn't so expensive and it had a better smell too.
My hair loves this oil.

Best Hair Oil
Flygirl83 from Phila
I have 4a hair and use this hair oil as a finisher after straightening my hair. It gives my hair a nice shine without weighing it down. Its a little pricey but worth it.
Love this product to help my hair Not frizz!!!
Lucy from Dallas
I buy this every few months! Best product ever for frizz!
not worth it. Did nothing for my hair
Maro from Ca
It makes the hair shinny however it just feels like and oily mask. My hair does not do anything with it. Moroccan oil seems to penetrate better with out an oily greasy feel.
love the scent
jewels from RI
I have had this oil for a very long time. I dont have curly hair, but wavy and frizzy, thin. I do love the scent and use it regularly so I will it lasts very long. I use at least weekly and i have had it for about a year of more. I truly cant say it has done anything for my hair, but kept it and trying to use it up. I will recommend since it may work for someone else and it did not cause any harm to hair either. I would not repurchase though
Janell from Wa
I used others advice in the reviews and sprayed this into my hands and scrunched i to the bottom of my curls. I immediately noticed a difference. My ends were no longer dry or started to frizz. They looked moisturized and defined without being greasy or weighed down. And the smell is divine. A new holy grail for me.
Kendra from Atlanta
Feels great in my hair
