I first purchased this product because I needed a hair oil that helped nourish my really dry scalp and leave my hair feeling and looking smooth. Even though I've never used a relaxer or perm, I've been coloring my hair for while which makes it drier. (I've always had a really dry scalp.) This oil has a very soft, sweet, calming scent that makes me want to drown my hair in, which I don't. It helps smooth down my pressed hair whenever I want that perfect ponytail. If you have really thick, dry hair, try this product. I doubt you'll regret it.
