I received this Hope & Repair 3 in 1 benefit oil with virgin coconut oil & ylang ylang flower oil from Crowd tap to test it out. I was really excited to try this out, as I have really long, thick, dry, damaged & color treated hair. And living in Michigan in the middle of winter the ends of my hair are SO dried out. When 1st reading the back of the label I really liked that it prompts you to use as a pre-wash for a deep treatment or post wash. I would've never thought of using before a shower. So I put my hair in a few sections & applied from mid-length to the ends of my hair, & making sure to avoid my roots as that's a no-no. Left it in for about 30 mins & then washed out with shampoo (Love Beauty & Planets Shea Butter & Sandalwood purposeful hydration shampoo) skipped conditioner & let my hair air dry. I was very surprised that my hair wasn't oily looking & felt soft smooth & the frizziness was calmed down more than normal. And It had that desirable shine. Also, my hair smelled really good, I couldn't stop smelling my hair with the nice coconut scent! This really worked well with my hair. Also, I really didn't have to use a whole lot, so I know this bottle will last me at least a few months. It helped give life back to my dry & thirsty hair!
