[review] mega care olive oil

mega care olive oil
olive oil, soybean oil, sunflower oil, castor oil, safflower oil, cotton seed oil, wheat germ oil, macadamia nut oil, tocopherol, fragrance.

i've used this when i was relaxed and have no recollection at all of what it did for me, but i do remember that i used it to moisturize every other day when i was in a weave. i wanted to use it up and the little nozzle opening made it very easy to get past the netting. when it was time to take the weave out, my hair was not dry at all, probably because of this and the bee mine.

so i decided to revisit it now that i'm natural and i'm not exactly amazed. it's got good ingredients in it, but if it did anything, i couldn't tell. i got a comment on the scent (a very strong "what is that?") and it wasn't good. the smell is a little musky, doesn't stink, but it's a far shot from fragrant. smells just like the ingredients would have you think.

the oil had little absorption, and i could feel the rest sitting on my hair, but i'm also very heavyhanded so take that with a grain of salt. i'll use it up as a pre-poo maybe and try lighter applications, since i can't walk around in public with it on my head without offending. left my hair soft, but not as soft as castor oil, but my hair didn't feel too dry by the afternoon.

verdict: i will not repurchase.
