I am 22 years old and have been dying, straightening, blow drying, back-combing, stripping and highlighting my hair since I was 14 years old. I have used EVERYTHING under the sun to try to repair this head of damaged hair since I was able to buy my own products. This micro-oil is wonderful, it's extremely lightweight and doesn't have a strong overpowering smell (for those of you with sensitive skin this might be your 'Christmas' miracle) use it very sparingly, literally a little goes a long way (I put one pump into my hands rub them together and saturate my ends then use what is left to go from root to end). I do use it after using the Full Repair Shampoo and Conditioner (which I also strongly recommend). I have used it once and my hair feels like it did 8 years ago, no joke! I strongly advise you to at least try it, it will be the best money you have ever spent.
