My hair type
100% natural, kinky/coily, super dry but elastic and bouncy once moisturized properly. I need a pretty thick moisturizer for that to happen.
What it’s supposed to do
The oil mist is described as a light oil for fine and thinning hair. Now I don’t have either, but I thought since it’s an oil, it’s going to be naturally heavy and naturally moisturizing. The purpose of the oil is to provide moisture and nutrients for smooth, manageable hair. Since I purchased it from Ulta, her is the description that swayed me:
Keranique Marula Oil Hair Mist is an easy to use hair oil treatment spray adds instant moisture and shine to thin hair. Makes fine, thinning hair look and feel softer and healthier. Multi-benefit lightweight oil that revitalizes, increases shine, softens texture, and fights flyaways for thinning hair. This blend containing natural mongongo, marula and cyperus oils creates a light layer of moisturizers that conditions the hair without build-up.
Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Isododecane, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Phenyl Trimethicone, Schinziophyton Rautanenii Kernel Oil, Sclerocarya Birrea Seed Oil, Cyperus Esculentus Root Oil
How I use it
My natural hair:
I spray the mist directly to the sectioned portion of hair I am detangling. I have tried the mist on wet and dry hair.
My straight hair (human hair wigs):
I tried the mist on a couple of my wigs that appeared flat and dry and could use a boost of shine to wake it up a bit.
What I like about it
I love the way the mist sprays. It’s so light and satisfying. Every mist should spray like this one! I like that the mist brings wigs/weaves that look kind of dull back to life.
What could be better
I’m not gonna lie, when I opened the box and pulled the mist out, I was incredibly disappointed by its size. For $35.00, I was expecting something much larger. Regardless of what the information says on the website, I was still quite shocked the bottle was so small. I also wish it was not $35.00 and had some kind of fragrance to it. I really prefer fragranced hair products, and this doesn’t smell like much of anything.
I regret not taking a look at the ingredients before I purchased. While oils generally make my hair soft and more manageable, the first few ingredients are synthetics and silicons. I am more interested in all natural oils. In addition, while the oil does give shine to my natural hair, it did not come close to moisturizing it, and that’s spraying it on liberally.
On a scale of 1-10, this oil mist is a 2. I think it’s overpriced and it doesn’t do much of anything of my natural hair, the primary reason I purchased it. This will get used up as a body care product.
