I am an oil junkie-in-training as I transition to my natural hair, and I am often researching the benefits of various oils in hair. This elixir contains a number of the oils that are considered must-haves, especially for those with dry hair and/or problems with flakes--jojoba, castor, almond, and of course, argan. It is a moisturizing oil that gives shine without the oily feel throughout my hair. Finally, the scented version (lavender/ vanilla) is wonderful. Given the 4 oz. bottle, it is, without hesitation, the most expensive oil/ oz. that I own, but again, this is a blend of oils that can potentially save you versus the cost of buying each oil individually. Also, a little bit goes a long way, so it is possible to use it sparingly and make it last. I use it as an essential ingredient in my shea butter souffle, and a couple of times/ week to moisturize my roots and scalp.
