I naturallyhave oily hair, it doesn't matter if I wash my hair in the morning, by midday it looks like it needs to be washed again. Having said that, I try not to use a ton of products in my hit for the fear of making my hair look more oily the. It naturally does. When I saw this product I was anxious to try it because I haven't heard anything bad about John Freidas products and am always looking for items that will help rid my oily hair. I was disappointed in this product as it not only made my root area look oily but the lift didn't last for more then an hour max! I had to walk around all day with flat oily looking hair--needless to say I ending up throwing this product away. I wouldn't use this again and probably wouldn't recommend it to a friend unless they didn't have problems with oily hair, perhaps this may work for them.
