Ampoules are GLASS...be careful !!! I use a towel to break open one tip then put open tip inside empty dispensing spray bottle then break the other end open with towel. Allowing the oil to flow more freely into the dispenser spray bottle.

My hair is down to the middle of my back and high lighted every 6-8 weeks so it tends to get dry. After 1 use the product showed results. The ampules are easy to use, you snap off the tips of the ample and pour the product into the spray bottle included in the package. Best bet snap one end, place over the spray bottle (with cap removed) and then snap the other end so gravity takes it's course

break off one side of the ampule and point it in the white spray bottle then break off the other side so the oil flows in the sprayer

The trick to opening is to break one of the ends of the vial using a towel while keeping the vial upright. Then turn the broken end over the spray bottle opening then snap the other end using a towel. The liquid releases right into the spray bottle. No mess.

You can use it 3 times a week or more, its up to you and your hair condition! You open them by either pushing the pointy part down, but I would recommend getting a pair of scissors and just cutting it open and the top tho! Its plastic not glass so dont worry it wont hurt you. The white spray bottle next to it is actually when you open the the treatment oil tubes that is there for you to pour the oil into, so then you can spray it into your hair. hopes this helps!!

the ampoules are scored at the top and bottom and you need to snap off both ends in order to get the oil out--- they advise to use a towel, but i have a better grip with my hands (silicone gloves might work). the white spray bottle is empty and you can empty the ampoule into the spray bottle and spray it onto your hair. it makes the strand-by-strand application much easier and much cleaner. I have been using this product once a week (one amp./week), and I also use the phyto Elixir in between.

there are five "vials" for treatment. You use only one per treatment. The little bottle on the left is an empty spray bottle (very small and made of glass. Open up the top spay part - then use a towel to break off one end of one vial flip into the empty spray bottle, then break off the other end that sticks out of the bottle and the contents will flow right in. It is a fairly thick oil that you spray on your hair in sections, then comb through with a wide toothed comb to distribute the product evenly. Only need to be on for 15-20 minutes then ready to rinse out and wash hair as usual. Product is to be used on dry hair then you wash....almost did not mention that!

Use once a week The conditioner comes in glass vials. Use the white plastic thing to open your glass vial. Place one end of the glass into the white plastic thing. Press your fingertip over the angle of the plastic and gently press. This will snap off the tip of the glass vial. Pour the conditioner into the empty glass container that is provided in your package and apply the oil to your hair. I throw out the spray attachment and apply the oil with my hands.

The box should come with a white plastic vial opener (looks a bit like a sewing thimble) You use that to crack open the ends of the vials. The spray bottle is for to assist with the application of the product; you pour the oil into the bottle to spray it onto your hair. I personally find it easier to pour the oil directly onto my hands and then apply it to my hair.

I found that I had to open one end (using a towel to break it) and place that end in the opening of the spray bottle. Then open the other (also with a towel) and the oil flows freely into the spray bottle. This procedure does seem to make using this a lot of work in comparison to other hot oil treatments.

you apply to dry hair then you wash after leaving it in for about 15-20 minutes. I just comb through my hair after I spray my hair with this product and leave it as is for the minimum time and rinse out and follow my regular routine. My hair is in excellent shape since I started this treatment. Only need to do every other week or so....I also use the mask...wonderful product that I highly recommend!

I've been using Huile d'Ales for about two years (it's my favorite product of all time). I apply it to dry hair. Since my hair is long, I use a full vial each time (I use it once every week or two) but when my hair was shoulder-length, I could definitely get by with just using half a vial. Once my hair is covered, I pull it up and secure with a clip and leave it on about 30 minutes, then shampoo. Fantastic!

It says to leave it on for 30 minutes, but I don't see the harm in leaving it in overnight other than the fact that it is an oil and it will get on your pillow.

I put this on my hair right before showering, put my hair up in a clip, and leave it on for about 20 minutes before washing it out. It probably doesn't hurt to sleep with it on, but I don't think there's any added benefit.

No overnight treatment - Very easy - just spray on about 10-20 minutes before you want to wash your hair and then rinse off, wash hair with regular shampoo and conditioner. You will be amazed at how wonderful your hair will look after you use this product! I use a towel to break off one side of the vial (little thin tips on end) then stick it into the little mini spray bottle, then break off the other end and it flows right in there. Replace the cap on spray bottle and go to town! It doesn't look like much, but will really be enough if you have short to medium hair!

You can add the treatment to your hair while you sleep (recommend using a towel on your head so your pillow does not get oily) or you can add it at any other time of day. Keep on your hair for at least 30 minutes.

Huiles d Ales is actually a oil that can be used alone before or after shampooing because it is water based or it can be added to your hair color.

answer 2
Huile d'Ales adds moisture and shine. Phytonectar is a protein treatment. It is more for restructuring and helps with breakage.

answer 3
This is better! I've used both and this one completely transforms my hair. Even with washing my hair daily, one application of this gives me at least a week of shiny, healthy, manageable hair. The phytonectar is easier to use (no vials) but it seems to only work for me on the day that I use it. Basically, they are both great deep conditioning treatments but I definitely prefer Huile d'Ales
