Coconut Hair Defrizzer + Heat Protector
I have really think and coarse hair, so I always have problems with frizz when I get out of the shower. I've used other less natural products to tame the frizz, but I always worry about the parabens and other things in these products so I was initially really excited about this product was very disappointed when it didn't work. It didn't help with frizz at all, and my hair felt really dry and brittle after flat ironing even with the supposed heat protecting capabilities of this product. The smell was wonderful and the price was great, but I won't be buying it again because it didn't work at all for me.

What I love most about this product is the scent. It's sweet and coconutty. As a de-frizzer it works moderately well however I live in a humid climate and taming curly fine hair is an on-going battle. But I liked it as a "curl-reviver" and that is how I used it. Just be careful not to over do it or your hair can get weighed down.

I was a little scared to buy this product after reading the only review for this product. But, I am very happy I got this item. If you like the smell of coconut you will love this. It works great to protect your hair and leaves it frizz free.. :)

Unfortunately the smell of this product is too bad to bare. Not sure how effective it is because I could not tolerate the smell of it. Strong chemical like smell.

I was hoping for the best...
I bought this product to use in place of my usual tresseme heat tamer. I want to make the final step in going natural with no chemically derived products (like silicone). But unfortunately in this spring/summer weather my hair cannot combat this humidity and rainy weather unless I use a good defrizzer and heat protectant. I am am black with natural (unrelaxed) hair. I do flat iron my hair so I need something to make my hair flow smoothly and not puff up at the slightest sign of moisture. I only used this product for a week and it did nothing for me. It was basically like I hadn't used any product at all. I was considering using this product for another week and combining it with argan or jojoba oil to better moisturizer my hair but right now I work to much and I don't have time for experimentation. I need to stick with the product that works best for me with the least hassle. Maybe in a couple of months, when I have more time off from work I will try this product again and update my review if I find any positive outcomes!

Love this stuff...
I have long curly hair, and I have been using like 4 or 5 products in my hair to keep it from being frizzy and unruly. With this product I can't spray it on after I wash it and trow some moose in it and go. I love this stuff! Oh and it smells amazing! Have go through about 2 or 3 bottles of it and I plan on using it for a long time, it's great!

Outstanding friz control
This is the first time I have used this product and I love it. It's wonderful stuff! I'm stuck on it and the hand cream is great too!

After falling in love with the Italian Red Grape shampoo and conditioner, I decided to try this. I have short, fine, curly hair. It made my hair frizz and the ends felt VERY dry within 5 minutes of applying it to my hair. The smell is STRONG. You can smell the coconut, but it's more like the coconut is trying to mask another unpleasant scent. I still plan on trying other DE products, but I will be staying away from the hair styling products after my experience with this stuff.

wow! works wonders in cold dry climate for me
I loved the superior quality of desert essence products (the sugar scrub!) way back when. When I saw this up here in Canada I bought it and I am so glad I did. Even though it is marketed for heat damage it also is just excellent for cold dry climates as well, it must be the cactus, because with this winter we have had this product has been magic. My hair can not do nut based products and I can not do wheat so with having thick curly porous hair that is on the dry side this products ticks all the requirements. Nothing else like it even in the big box stores here. Please keep shipping it to Canada. This has kept my hair very healthy and also makes it look great.

Really Wanted to Love This, But...
Some of you may recognize me from my review of the Coconut Soft Curls Cream. I have been using that product every day for months now, and I still LOVE it in conjunction with hair spray. I had been wanting to try this in conjunction with the cream, and I was excited to finally see it on sale at my local health-centered market. Honestly, it has disappointed me... it does not manage my frizz nearly as well as the BWC hair spray I have been using for months. Although the BWC spray holds my hair well, it is very sticky. So I was hoping that this product was going to do the job and not be as sticky. I will still use it on days when I wear my hair in a ponytail, as my hair doesn't get as frizzy then. But it definitely doesn't do a good enough job when my curly hair is down. Just a note about the scent: I don't find it overwhelming at all, which is something other reviewers have mentioned.

overpowering smell :-(
Product seems to work well with my frizzy, sun-damaged hair. Unfortunately, the smell is so overpowering that it makes me not want to use it. Will not buy again.

This works great for me! First of all, the smell is to die for, and I really love that it is a light spray because a lot of the smoothing creams are too heavy for my fine hair and they make my hair feel "stringy" after straightening. I blow dry and straighten my hair a lot and this really keeps frizz down especially now that the warm weather is here

THE BEST EVER IN HAIR PRODUCTS
This product is the best product i have ever tried since some of my hair products that i buy give me allergies but this product is different and excellent, it gives my hair shine and takes away the fizz from my hair real quick but it smells so yummylicous and its all natural which i like alot and my mom sometimes uses my bottle and she likes it to,thank you so much for this product yall got the top notch products which is the best but i would advise that everyone has different hair type, so read the ingredients and find what's right for that hair type

Good product, but pricey
I bought this product for cheap at another place. I have poofy hair especially when I enjoy leaving my hair long during the winter season. It does have a nice natural fragrance, i'll give a good thumbs up since it is vegan, and it works to some extent. This product has wonderful stuff like jojoba, agave, and coconut extracts. However, there's another product i've been using for so long, that does a better job than this. My hair still fizz after a while.

Love how this product makes the hair smooth and frizz-free, which is definitely important this time of year. But an extra special bonus is that the coconut scent makes you feel like you're on a tropical vacation! Amazing!
