It does not weigh hair down at all. I apply after towel drying and before flat ironing and there is no greasiness, build up, or oiliness. I live in a humid climate and this oil helps enormously.

I have the same type of hair & used it on my wet hair then blew it out & ironed it & it was a beautiful blow out that almost didn't need the iron, so it cut back on the heat I had to use. However, use most at the ends & just whats left on our hands on the rest of your hair because it is heavier than the Argan or Morrocan Oil but I really liked it & on my wet curly air-dried hair it made for a no-frizz day. With hair like ours it works but I wouldn't do it if I had fine or thin hair.

I have thin, dry, curly hair but I don't think hair type matters, this is just an awesome product. Sometimes I just wash my hair and put the serum in and let my hair air dry. It looks the same as when I use my styling products so I have actually stopped using most of them. If you have split ends, like I do, just rub a little extra on the last few inches of your hair. I say try it, if you don't like it Sephora has a great return policy.

I have dry, fine, thin, curly hair but it's long. I thought it would weigh down my hair and make it look oily, but it doesn't in the least. I use about 5 drops, rub my hands together, flip my hair over (so it's upside down) I use most of the oil on the part that is hanging down and the rest on the back of my scalp and then run my hands through the front of my hair. It makes my hair soft, shiny and gets rid of the frizz. I know it's kind if pricey but it is worth every penny. Besides if you don't like it just take/send it back. Sephora has an awesome refund policy.

maybe just use it on the ends of your hair instead of the root, this way it won't weigh it down. i would give it a try tho, It is a very light oil, i have used many oils such as CHI silk infusion, biosilk, and moroccan oil, and this is definitely the lightest one i have tried, in my opinion. My hair isn't exactly coarse and it tends to get greasy fast and this oil works just fine with it. i would play around with it and see what works best, try applying it when your hair is damp one day, and style. Or you could also try to just add a little bit to your ends when it is dry and see which works best for you. I was defintely impressed with this oil tho, i love it .

You can apply it to wet or dry hair- I prefer applying it to wet hair. You can apply to just the tips if you want, but it's supposed to be evenly distributed throughout your hair (don't put it on the hair near your scalp because that part will get natural hair oil quickly anyway and you don't want to double the grease up there) . I have really thick hair, so I usually use a little more than a quarter sized amount of oil, I put it in my hair and then comb my hair so that it's distributed, then I blow dry or air dry.

I've been applying this oil on towel-dried hair, before I blow dry. Then, after my hair is dry, I'll put a little more oil on the ends if they still look a little dry/frizzy. Most days I don't have to do that, though.

I have over processed bleached hair and I apply more at the ends, but I do apply it all over. I apply it mostly while it is still damp, but on extra dry days I will put it on my dried locks too. My hair is so damaged though that my hair seems to absorb any oil I put on it. As far as oils go tho, this one is the least greasy that I have tried and makes my hair so much softer.

you can use it as a post shampoo serum to damp hair all over (or just ends) or you can use it as a deep conditioning oil treatment a couple times a week before washing your hair. I do both. Sometimes I comb it through my hair before I shower and hit it with a blow dryer for the hot-oil treatment effect. I love it

I think it's best applied to damp hair because it's an oil and it needs to be distributed evenly. Just a drop or two spread across your palms and applied wherever you need it and then combed through should do the trick.

You can use the Kendi Oil on damp and/or dry hair. I use a nickel size amount on my damp hair avoiding the roots and maybe an inch of hair closest to my scalp and then blow dry. If you want to use a tiny bit more before you flat iron or just as "insurance" before you leave home you can do that too.

answer 3
I like both the Pequi Oil (especially the smell :) ) and the Kendi Oil, but I'm choosing the Kendi Oil for personal hair reasons (but they're both great depending on what you want).

They both made my hair softer, smoother, and have improved the health of my hair without causing any breakout on my skin and without weighing my hair down or making it look greasy (and I only wash my hair every 2-3 days).

The reason I choose the Kendi Oil is because I noticed the Pequi Oil made my hair so soft that is was kind of fluffy (hard to explain lol ) . Since my hair is really thick, it looked like I had a little static going on in my hair. So, it wasn't doing anything bad, but the Kendi Oil seems to react better to my super thick hair. I like the smell of the Pequi better because it's coconutty and subtle. The Kendi Oil smells like strong perfume and it's not subtle.

I think the Kendi is supposed to also protect your hair from environmental damage, and help repair it and make it healthy. I don't think it protects from heat damage though, but I could be wrong.

Argan oil s*cks, that a dry oil and does not really combat curly or wavy frizzles. I have tried them all! You will usually have to load your hair with Argan oil (even the pure kind). Argan oil is more for like a top coat smooth/sheen look, but to deal with actual frizz I stay away from it. I really love this Bamboo serum, for my thick wavy hair.

It's full of silicones and they temporarily give your hair that feeling.

Personally, with any hair product I have ever used... If you like the results that you get from the product you are using it is something that has to become apart of your regular hair regimen. But don't be afraid to branch out to other products that advertise the same features... Because you might find something that fits your hair better or demonstrates what a great product you have already found.

In my opinion nothing is long lasting. It sounds like you may have hair like mine and I use a deep conditioner weekly so that it will stay silky.

If you use the shampoo from this brand as well it tells you to put the oil on your hair 10 minutes before you shower so you don't strip the natural oils out.

It makes your hair remarkable!

Yes, it is also a treatment. And it's great. I never thought about heating it up but I'm sure it would be even more amazing.

It could but really just put on damp hair sparingly and let dry....could put a little on dry hair and just style as usual. Doesn't seem to weigh it down.

I haven't tried using it that way, but being that it's technically a "dry" oil, I don't see how warming it would create better or different performance. But, heck if it's Sunday afternoon and nothing more important to do, just experiment and see. I would heat up a mug of hot water in the microwave, once it's done, set the dry oil spray bottle in to the hot water and let it sit for 15 minutes, they try using it. Please report back and tell us how it worked! :)
