Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a good product - sticky and brittle hair This product is not good for my hair. It is thick, sticky, hard to brush through, and seems to make my hair really dry and brittle. I have thin, fine, curly hair. I wanted to think this would maybe be good for my hair over the longer term, so I’ve been trying to use it over the last two months, but unfortunately have only seen bad results. Every time I use it I am disappointed by the texture of my hair afterwards and how unmanageable it becomes from this product. Really bummed about that. Would recommend the Damage Repairing & Rehydrating leave in treatment instead of this

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product, Poor Packaging A little rubbed into palms and applied to my super dry broken hair has completely changed it’s appearance in a few days. Yes, the cap needs to be removed and the product dug out of the bottle but it is far superior to anything else I’ve tried for my broken frizzy hair. I have a lot of hair, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best product in a long time I have extremely thick curly course hair that tends to be very dry. I’ve tried actually everything to control my hair all my life. This product was a friend’s which I borrowed in a pinch and now I’m obsessed with it. I brush my hair in the shower, shampoo with a quality purifying shampoo and DO NOT CONDITION, if u do you’re essentially going to try to run oil into oil and end up with a mess. Then when I get out and pat dry my hair, while it’s damp but very dry from being shampooed I work this product thru. My hair has never ever been better: super management, soft, hydrated, great curls, no frizz.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great Product Ruined by Wrong Bottle For some reason, the bottle for this product is made of hard, translucent green plastic. In my experience, this is unlike any other Kiehl's product -- the packaging in everthing else is great (other than in the Age Defender Power Serum with a pump bottle you never get all the product out of). The top is a pop-up squeeze delivery top, very standard. Same, for example, as on the men's Facial Fuel Energizing Face Wash. No problem there. But the Face Wash has a soft plastic bottle, so you can squeeze the stuff out through the top. The Strengthening and Hydrating Hair Oil-in-Cream, this product, by contrast, has a HARD plastic bottle. Really hard. You can't squeeze it. You have to unscrew the top, then hit the bottom like a bottle of catsup. Ridiculous. It's impossible to know how this mistake has been made, nor can I find any interest in the company in fixing it, having reported it before. If someone at Kiehl's reading this would simply requisition a bottle of Strengthening and Hydrating Hair Oil-in-Cream and try squeezing it, they'd see instantly what a mistake the bottle is and they'd understand perfectly. A complete mystery why the company won't address this. Really disappointing. They seem very happy to waste our time letting us tell them these things and not rectifying them. Sorry for the unpleasant comment. Such a good company making such a needless mistake on a good product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Product if you use it right I am surprised to read some reviews about this product. I bought this reluctantly but with the hope that maybe this would solve my frizz issues... And it does! I think a lot of the reviews here describe this negatively perhaps because they apply too much product on to the hair. There were times where I put too much and it led to very bad results. If you have curly hair like me, (I like to let my hair air dry as much as possible), I would suggest you apply a small amount EVENLY through your hair strands AFTER combing it. Do not apply it before you comb through your hair because its going to make everything more difficult. This product also works great if you need to blow dry your hair. On my hair it actually kind of relaxed the curl which is a cool different look. I agree with other reviews though that the bottle needs to be changed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst purchase ever So disappointed with this purchase. I have tried it several times hoping for a different result but each time, I end up with hair that is sticky, frizzy, and a tangled mess. The packaging is horrible as well. Can't get product out of bottle! I can't believe that this has not been pulled off the shelves yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worst product ever Worst purchase ever... Sticky, stiff, drying, gummy. Horrible product. Atrocious. The only thing going for it is a light scent. If you're a wash-n-go girl, this product weighs down, stiff, sticky, gummy, and frizzy/dries out at the same time. It's the worst product on the market. By far - worse than drugstore leave-ins, worse than Ouidad, worse than Devachan. None of the Kiehl's conditioners or leave-ins are any good. The only way the site would accept this post this was with 5 stars... it's really a Zero!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for Very dry hair/scalp and with itching. Tried a number of shampoos but nothing worked. This seems to help at least for a few hours. Agree that it's hard to get out of the bottle

Rated 1 out of 5 by from One of the worst purchases Went to Kiehl's for a hair product that would hydrate my dry fine hair. Strengthening and Hydrating Hair Oil-in-Cream was suggested to me. This product leaves my fine hair all clumped together and sticky. I thought I used too much so I shampooed and conditioned my hair again and use less product. The results were the same, sticky unhydrated hair. I returned the product. When I went to another Kiehl's and spoke to a sales person, I told her my issue and she suggested another product. I asked her about Strengthening and Hydrating Hair Oil-in-Cream and she said that she would not have suggested that product for my ihair. When I told her that another Kiehl's suggested it, she said she didn't know why they would suggest it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Change The Packaging Great Product. Please give it some great packaging. This product needs to be in a tube like Silk Groom.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst purchase evwr. The worst bottle design, impossible to squeeze product. This procuct didi not worked for me, instead it leaves my hair hard and sticky.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product but.... I really love how effective this product is. It does what it claims and I love the scent. BUT it's impossible to get out of the bottle please please consider a redesign!! Ugh!!! It's almost annoying how hard it is to get out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Man, This is Great! I really love this product. It's one that I've overlooked for years and honestly never knew existed - but after I tried it, I fell in love. This cream really does what it says by strengthening and hydrating my hair. I also believe it helps control my frizz a bit too. It's just so lovely and I can't get enough. I do agree with another reviewer that this product needs a pump.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super soft hair I have been looking for a product that nourishes and softens my hair for years and this product does it. In the last 6 years, my hair has gotten increasingly dry even though I trim it every 2 months and wash it every 3-4 days. I do admit I style it after every wash. I have been a Kiehl's customer for 10 years and I cannot believe it took me so long to find this product. I have been using it for a month, every day (wet and dry) and my hair has gotten super soft and healthier looking. I do not need a lot of product but I plan on buying more when I'm done with my current bottle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST!!!! Kiehls, please, please, PLEASE, never discontinue or change the formula!!! There isn't ANYTHING that works for my hair like this product does. I'm African American with naturally curly hair that tends to be on the dry side, especially after a hair coloring fiasco. I use this as a leave after washing my hair. It instantly smoothed my hair & moisturized like nothing else. I used a light gel on top of it for hold & that was it. Frizz was greatly reduced compared to other products I use. I'm in love... I do wish it was easier to get out of the bottle & for $25 at least an 8 oz bottle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best The promises that the product professes is right on target. I am very pleased with the end result which is hydrated hair that is now soft and shiny! I also mix it with silk groom. I apply product to both dry as well as damp hair. I only mix the silk groom to damp hair. Product lasts approximately 3 months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Abused hair? Stop here, look no further Trust me ladies, just throw down and buy all of these products. After one time I promise you'll throw away everything else you've got like I did. This is imho the best product in the Olive Fruit line - I have very long hair and about 2 quarter size blobs work well in my unruly hair. My hair is softer, shinier and in better condition than it's been in years. While I'm a big fan of science, have to admit that I never thought natural oils and organics could be so amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific product; terrible packaging I have tried other leave-in products for my dry, newly gray hair, but this is the best by far. As with many other Kiehl's products, I found the packaging in a brittle plastic bottle hopelessly inadequate for this fairly thick product. I could not squeeze out any of the product, so I spent nearly an hour transferring it by the drip method to a bottle with a pump that I had saved from another product. Why, oh why, can't Kiehl's provide pumps for its thick, bottled products? I would gladly pay extra for them. Marvelous products are no good if one can't get them easily out of their containers, and that's the case with far too many of Kiehl's products.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible product This product is terrible. I have bought many products from Kiehl's and really liked them all...until this product. I have very dry hair and thought this might help. All it does is leave my hair feeling sticky, not soft and moisturized. If it weren't such a pain to get a refund I would be doing it right now. Don't waste your $25 on this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally something that works I struggle with dry, frizzy hair and have to avoid shampooing but once a week in order to get my hair to be manageable. This cream is amazing. I use it every day and my hair looks so much healthier and it's much softer now. This stuff is incredible. It also smells amazing so that's an added bonus. My only complaint is that it does build up and causes dandruff, but so do most hair products. This stuff is pricey so I've been keeping an eye out for a cheaper generic brand of a similar product, but so far this is the best thing I have found.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Where have you been all my life I seriously don't know how I lived without this. My hair is curly/wavy and I usually wear it straight. So many other products either make my hair Rough and sticky or way too greasy ..... Not this. Just one use and my hair feels silky, smooth, and I can't stop touching it thinking it's too good to be true!! Order this product and you won't be sorry :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Stuff Ever This product is a miracle on my hair. I live in a hot and humid climate, and very few leave in oils or conditioners actually help eliminate frizz and coarseness. This oil in cream does make a dramatic difference. My hair is medium thin, but still reacts to this summery weather. Now, I can let my hair dry naturally and run the hot iron over it just once, and it takes on an incredible softness without feeling greasy. All you need is a little. I'm also using the Olive Oil shampoo and conditioner. My hair feels stronger with little or no breakage, and easily keeps casual styles. Thank you Kiehls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Hair Treatment Ever That's my favorite hair treatment product!!! You can see the effect as soon as you use it~ I already purchase my second bottle. I love how it makes my hair looks smooth and healthier!!! ❤️❤️❤️

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spectacular hair product This is my holy grail, hands-down favorite hair product. I have tried countless products but this one takes the gold medal. It leaves my hair SOFT, SUPPLE, SHINY, and SMOOTH - without adding any extra weight to it!! I put it in my damp hair after a shower and am ready to go for the day. Plus you only need a tiny dollop to get plenty of moisture Kiehl's is great because they do samples so if you are on the hunt for a hair product, I'm begging you - GIVE THIS A TRY!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME styling cream for curly hair! I had received a few samples after a purchase... and the first packet I tried, I was really impressed with the results as I had a challenging hair length for my curly hair and nothing I had used before had made it look good. After the first packet- THANK GOD I had a 2nd packet because it was amazing... after the 2nd I made the purchase and am so happy to have found this- my hair looks GORGEOUS!!!! And we've been having pretty wet and humid weather in NYC- it still looks better than with any other product I've tried in the past, plus i don't feel like it weighs my hair down or makes it feel greasy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great price, a little heavy for my fine hair I bought this to help with my dry scraggly ends. It does work great but is a little heavy for my hair. I ended up giving it to my best friend who is blessed with thick flowing locks and she loves it. Can't complain about the cost - most decent hair products even at the drugstore come close to this cost or are even pricier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best result ever hair oil/cream I use a lot of mousse and hair spray to style my waist-length hair each time I go to work. The chemicle products damaged my hair so badly that I lost confident in myself when meeting up with clients or friends over meals or during gatherings. I discovered Kiehls's hair products last year and fell in love with them since. This oil-in-cream product treats my damaged hair so well that I stop going to hair saloon for treatment for a year! I saw the result within a few applications. Now, I would make sure I apply this product on my hair EVERYDAY. Thank you Kiehl's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING! BEST HAIR PRODUCT EVER!!!! Ive used Moroccan Hail Oil and other top brands for frizz decrease and shine. This product is half the price and yet AMAZINGLY better. It doesn't make my hair oily at the end of the day like the other oil products do. It goes on clean and stays fresh and shiny, but not oily. Makes my hair noticeably shinier, healthier, and smoother. My grandma, who has never commented on my hair, said my hair looked very healthy today (which prompted this review).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for curly hair! I have very coarse, curly, dry hair and though I know exactly how to style it best, I'm always looking for one more thing. Well, this is it! I received a sample of this from a rep at the store and I was so impressed with how well it worked, I went out the next day to buy it. It helps define my curls into a frizz-free, sleek look and my hair is incredibly soft now! I apply it after my hairs been washed when it's still really damp, and then I style as usual. I got so many compliments when I went into work about how nice my curls looked that day. Definitely a solid purchase! I would not recommend this for girls who have thinner hair, as it is very rich.
