I don't get it? I put a tiny amount in my hands and ran it through my hair after just one day of no washing, and it didn't do anything to soak up the oil. It literally didn't lessen the appearance of grease or anything like that. I'll keep trying it but was very underwhelmed with the product. The smell is fine, the consistency is like shaving cream. It just didn't dry down and soak up much oil for me.
