    Comments about Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Dry Oil Mist:

    Originally have straight hair but I like to wave it. I don't wash my hair every day and this is perfect for those 2nd or 3rd day hairs when you need to freshen up your hairstyle. Doesn't weight down my hair or ruin the curls I've created. Also great for color-treated hair! Adds great shine and IN LOVE WITH THE SMELL! I mostly use it to freshen up my hair and I treat it kinda like hair perfume. Just wish that it was a better value because I go through this stuff quickly because it smells soo gooood.

          Great product! My hair is on the thick side, wavy , dry. It tends to frizz. This is one of the best products I have tried. I use it on wet hair followed by a smoothing serum. Then I blow dry.This can also be used on Haifa that is already styled.... It does not create product build up. It is light, but effective.

              I have long, naturally curly hair that is colored often for grey coverage. This product is great! I massaged a bit into my scalp and it helped to alleviate my dry scalp and my hair felt more healthy and was less frizzy after just one use BUT I simply can't afford it. I have to use quite a bit for all my hair. :( I took away one star for the price point only. If you have an unlimited beauty product budget I HIGHLY recommend for dry, damaged and frizzy hair!

                  I'm surprised by all the good reviews for this. It was just okay. I used it on dry hair to give it shine and smooth out a small amount of frizz. I have fine hair. It made it a little shiny but also kind of stringy & clumpy. I like Kenra Shine Spray better - it gives a very fine mist and coats every hair with shine, but doesn't change the texture.

                      We do not specifically test against heat protection therefore we do not have any clinical claims on this product however it does provide some thermal protection as well as humidity resistance and deeply nourishes and strengthens the hair.

                    Could I use this with the moisture milk? I want to use the milk for moisture but it doesn't have any heat protection or frizz fighting and then use this for those two things?

                      A:

                      Yes - Moisture Milk does actually provide heat protection up to 450F but it is also a great source of moisture. The Kendi Dry Oil Mist can also be used to banish frizz, provide humidity resistance and nourishes and strengthen the hair. It is also great to apply throughout the day as touch ups are needed.

                      A:

                      This product is the lightweight counterpart to Bamboo Smooth Pure Kendi Treatment Oil (Item #: 2228630); it works great for fine to medium hair and won't weigh hair down or cause oiliness. For super fine hair, instead use Bamboo Smooth Kendi Oil Micromist (Item #: 2259736), the lightest-weight version. This product features a subtle botanical scent and is not heavily perfumed.
