Creme of Nature - Straight From Eden - Plant Derived Repairing Oil - Review

I'm Just going to start this out with a confession :) I recently noticed something about myself and that is I'm totally addicted to hair oils. Before recently I didn't even know people used oils in there hair and was standoffish whether I should try them or not once I saw that there were products like this.

I received a free full sized bottle of Creme of Nature - Straight From Eden - Plant Derived Repairing Oil from entering the Creme of Nature Giveaway on Facebook. I also received sample sizes of the shampoo, conditioner, and leave-in conditioner, but lets face it when you have as much hair as I have sample size is just not enough. Either way I'm totally grateful and I thought I would give a review on what I could.

Creme of Nature - Straight From Eden - Plant Derived Repairing Oil says  its infused with natural oils derived from coconut, avocado and olive oils. And is said not to use Sulfates, parabens, mineral oil, petrolatum or alcohol.

It also claims to renew shine, deeply nourish, control frizz, fortify and repair. Also fight humidity, and instantly smoothes and softens hair.

Now anyone who knows me know my hair could use all of that. My hair is slightly wavy in the front and whole lot of wave in the back. Also seriously dehydrated. Any time I run a brush threw my hair its instant static. DULL in color even though I never use hair dyes and is extremely dry to the touch. I also have a serious dandruff problem that worsen in the winter. The frizz once it drys makes me instantly throw my hair into a bun to get it out of site, I have been sporting my messy bun since the 6th grade!

Reading the directions

First I tried washing my hair and using the oils as you would a leave-in conditioner. Mind you I did not use there brand of shampoo or conditioner, because my hair is to the middle of my back, super thick, I need more then a sample size packet to wash it. Towel blotted dry and added a small amount as directed to my palm. 

I smell the product before actually putting on my hair. I didn't really care for the smell at all. TO me it kind of smell like children bubbles they play with in the summer time. I thought maybe it was unscented or something and that why it was smelling like that but I read the back of the box and it indeed is perfumed. I didn't like it at all.  

My hair quickly absorbed the oils. the parts that it got on from using the small amount as directed seemed much softer and shiny as it dried. I was still frizzy and so I used a bit more product to try to calm the frizz. which it did. 

I like how it absorbed so quickly and didn't leave my hair feeling greasy or oily.

Would I buy this actual product though? How it smelled like bubbles was a huge turnoff for me. While I love what its doing to my hair, do I really want to walk around smelling like children bubbles all day? I would have to say no. If they made a different scent I would sure try it but this one, nope I couldn't see myself rushing out to get another bottle.

I hope you guys found this review helpful :)
