How to use: Replenishes needed nutrients to strengthen, condition and restore shine and softness. Contains kukui nut oil to help infuse lost luster and moisture balance. Protects hair and scalp from environmental pollutants and reduces frizz, allowing for a more manageable and sleek style. "
I was sent the full size ARGAN OIL with Kukui Nut Lipids* 59 ml. The box Application instructions say to: Apply a small amount in palms and work through damp or dry hair. Style. If desired, finish look using a few more drops for added softness and shine.
I was more than happy to try this product, my hair is very flyaway and frizzy. Very long, wavy/curly and there's a heap of it :)

The pump packaging makes using a breeze, you can easily dispense half or full pumps of product right into your palm where you want it.

This oil certainly aided in lessening tangles, and with most oils, my hair tends to dry a bit faster after using them. I'm very prone to oily scalp, and HAVE to wash my hair every 2nd day minimum, so I have to be careful not to add too much oil near my scalp, so I use this mainly on my ends when my hair is damp.

As a Finishing Shine Serum on dry hair? I love it! It's lightweight, doesn't build up in my hair, reduces frizz when applied to dry hair and definitely adds a healthy shine.
As the weather has not yet reached 'excess humidity' conditions, I cannot attest to it reducing frizz in those times. I went to Darwin years ago, and if you live there and have hair anything like mine, I'd be giving this product a go! :)

If you're interested in trying this product for yourself you can pick this up from HAIR2GO for $34.95.. {at the time of typing this, they are running a buy one get one free on this product!} So be quick!

If you're still here, you're probably wondering about the 'Future Giveaway'?? :) I knew it! In relation to this review I will be running a giveaway soon, let me know if you'd like to try this product for yourself, and you just might get the chance to win some Paul Brown Hawaii! :)

Summer just got a lot less frizzy! :)
