Will this make my hair oily?
I have naturally oily hair and I am worried that this product will weigh down my hair like other leave-in conditioners I have used.

I have fine hair that usually gets a little oily by the end of the day. With this product, my hair is no longer oily by the end of the day. I even spray it onto my scalp when I am doing second day hair, let it dry and then apply a little dry shampoo- this product seems to break down oil and build up on the scalp. I am not positive, but I think tea tree oil is used to reduce oil (tea tree oil is a primary ingredient in many facial cleansers and treatments for oily skin), so this should be perfect for you!

My hair tends to get oily very easily as it is very fine. This product didn't weigh my hair down or cause issues with the color of my chemically treated hair. What you want to do is lightly mist it all over and work it in with a comb. Also, keep it away from your roots for the most part and do not drench your hair in product. Make sure your hair is damp when you apply. Good luck and hope you love this as much as I do!

I'm a woman, & I like it. I think men might be more likely to use it b/c the fragrance is not floral/perfume-y like most women's products. It has a kind of "minty-fresh" smell when you first spray it on, & I was weirded out by that the 1st time I used it. However, that smell dissipates & leaves a nice, pleasantly woodsy, fresh fragrance that I like. Ingredients include extracts/oils of peppermint, rosemary, lemongrass, hops & nettle (not the stinging kind) leaves, as well as tea tree leaf oil. If you like more "feminine" fragrances, you might not care for it.

This product seems to go onto the hair, feeding it what it needs to stay healthy and shiny, but also giving it a sort of hold as long as using the other sprays with it. If you just use this, I don't feel that you get the hold, but your hair is shiny, soft feeling but not fly away, and just good all over.

The best feature of this product is how it neutralizes bad odors that hair frequently picks up and soothes your scalp when applied between washings so that those pesky dry scalp particles don't appear as you brush your hair between washings. I used it before styling to help detangle and after styling to neutralize the bad smell in some styling hair sprays.

This product is meant to do many things. I like it best used as a detangler and softener. I use it on wet hair and comb through. It can also be used as a "hair primer" to help other products stick. It can also be used on second day hair that has old product in in. It is very light weight and is not meant to be a heavy product that changes your hairs natural make-up, it is meant to give it some nurishment mostly. :)

It really helps with detangling... I have very long hair and it tangles really badly. All you have to do is just spray some on...if you still can't get your comb through just spray a little more and it goes right through! If you spray right onto your scalp it has a nice tingling effect and I noticed my hair is softer and smoother.

Nice detangler/conditioner. I didn't notice the "tingling" in my scalp that the label promises. Ingredients include tea tree oil as well as oils/extracts of peppermint, rosemary, lemongrass & nettle (not the stinging kind). When you first spray the product onto your hair, you get the same "minty-fresh" scent you get from brushing your teeth, which is kinda weird. But that fades quickly & hair is left smelling simply fresh. I have used it on my hair a day or 2 after washing, & it leaves my hair looking & feeling cleaner, although it is not advertised as a "dry shampoo" - so unless you have really thick/oily hair, I can recommend it for that purpose as well.

For me this product basically balances my scalp and hair... leaving it nourished but grease free (my hair is much oiler when I do not use this product). The tea tree oil should help break up excess product build up and oil, while the other ingredients help to condition and detangle, making styling easier and hair smoother. Some users have commented that they use this for heat protection, but I use an additional product (Alterna Dry oil Mist) that is specifically marketed for heat protection. Hope this helps!

PS- the description says it was designed with men in mind, but I think more women than men use it!

I have really curly hair and use it for my dandruff. Hair and shoulders smells terrible, but this, I have found works even if it smells like an herb garden. Try applying it close to your scalp at night and massaging it gently in...depending on your thickness, use accordingly, but try not to soak it so you don't have to wash your hair in the morning! The smell will fade by then too. Hope this helps!

This product is not specifically marketed for heat protection (although some users have noted that they use it for this purpose). it is really meant to balance the hair and scalp and prep hair for other products and for styling. If you are using high heat tools, frequently heat style, or have dry/damaged/chemically treated hair, I would personally suggest using a product specifically formulated for heat protection (not all, but some, products not made for this purpose can actually boil on hair when heated, causing damage). I love the Kendi Dry Oil Mist by Altnerna (I use it after using the Tonic on damp hair, then a light spritz on dry hair before flat ironing/curling iron, and sometimes a spritz after to help prevent flyaways- really a great multi-use product!). Don't be scared by the term "oil", it is very light weight and does not weigh down or add oil to my fine hair.

That said, definitely try the Tonic Spray if your hair tends to get greasy, tangled or is in need of a little more nourishment in general.

I have the styling lotion in addition to this one. In my opinion, the styling lotion is better for finer hair.

Tonic is a primer/foundation and the Styling Lotion is a styling aid. They actually could and should be used together because Tonic enhances the effects of Styling Lotion. You should visit Bb's website. They have lots of information how and why you should "layer" or use several products together. I was using Thickening Spray by itself and hated it. But when I layered Thickening Spray over Tonic, the results were pretty amazing. Tonic detangled and conditioned my hair without weighing it down one bit, and it controlled my oily scalp, extending the time between washes.

I bought both of these products to see which one was better. The description sounded the same for both products. The prep made my hair dry and make me have more fly aways. It does have a good smell but I wouldn't buy it again. The tonic I liked more. It made my hair soft and shinny. It makes your scalp tingle because of the tea tree oil. I don't mind it, just a weird sensation. The smell for this is kind of potent and you can defiantly smell the tree tea. The smell will go away after a few minutes.
You can see which one you like but the tonic is better I think. :)

Prep actually primes your hair for product, tonic is like using a toner on your hair after washing. It is excellent for the scalp, and hair, but it doesn't hold product or refresh your hair like prep will. Your hair also needs to be a little bit course, colored, dry, thick, wavy/curly to use tonic because it tends to be a little heavier. This is based on my experience, I've used both products for 10+ years.
