I bought this for my daughter who has thick, course, curly hair. Only a lil spray can make hair look very oily with this. I only recommend spraying on ends of hair and stay away from roots. I have thick, wavy hair and when I tried using this, it made my hair look like it hadn't been washed in days. It does work well as a detangler on my daughter and because her hair is so course, it absorbs the oil in about an hour and doesn't look as greasy.
