My current product buildup removal routine consists of using dish washing liquid. Harsh, but effective. I'd prefer something that doesn't have the potential of stripping color or damaging my hair, so this may be a good alternative.
The oil itself looks and smells very similar to DHC's Deep Cleansing Oil, which is my holy grail oil cleanser. I love this stuff. As in, I'd marry it if I could. I did a quick comparison of the ingredients between the two, and while they do contain some of the same ingredients such as olive fruit and rosemary leaf oils, the hair oil has some others such as panax ginseng root and arnica montana flower extracts. So, I'm guessing I won't be able to get away with using the facial cleansing oil on my head:-)
So, how did it work? Really well! My hair is soft, shiny, and has that fluffiness that comes from no product buildup. I may have to invest in a bottle! DHC Head Oil is $23 for 1 oz.
