      Comments about Palmer's Olive Oil Formula Gro Therapy, 8.8 oz:

      I don't write reviews but had to for this item as I was suprised with the negatives.

      I use this once or twice a week, primarily because I wear my hair down and the hair that touches my neck when its hot or when I'm in the shower at times gets moist (sweat) or wet and when this happens it gets frizzy. I also use it to tame my hair after getting caught in rain as rain causes the top part of my hair to frizz. This product remedies my frizz issues quickly and inexpensively especially because a lil goes a long way.

      My brother also uses this; I have to get him a few bottles a year. He has curly hair and uses it to set his hair daily (after washing) as it gives his hair the wet curly look that gel would without all the hair damaging ingredients.

            Used a very small amount on scalp and hair. Turned hair greasy and tangled. Shampooed 7 times in 2 days to finally remove product from hair.

              Comments about Palmer's Olive Oil Formula Gro Therapy, 8.8 oz:

              This product smells AMAZING. I put it in my hair just for the smell. Don't expect it to make your hair grow, but it does help damaged ends. I don't put it on near my scalp because my scalp is very oily as it is. But I do put it on the ends of my hair before I blow dry it and before I go out. It keeps my hair soft and smooth and tangle free. I only use a teeny tiny amount (about the same amount as a balm or wax). I rub it between my hands to melt it a bit and then smooth it over the ends of my hair.
              I had a lot of issues with my hair being excessively damaged. I believe it was a combination of factors, but I lost about 4 inches of length over a 6 month period from breakage. I have since cut off a lot more hair and am trying to keep the ends moisturized so they don't break again. I use argan oil and cream in addition to this product. So far, it has helped keep my ends a bit less damaged than before.

              First off, this product smells amazing. I put it in my hair just for the smell. Don't expect it to make your hair grow, but it does help damaged ends. I don't put it on near my scalp because my scalp is very oily as it is. But I do put it on the ends of my hair before I blow dry it and before I go out. It keeps my hair soft and smooth and tangle free.

              Bottom line, as long as you don't use too much of it, it is a great product. Smells great and helps seal in moisture. I gave 4 stars and not 5 because I can't put it on my scalp to see if it will help grow it because it would get too greasy.

                Comments about Palmer's Olive Oil Formula Gro Therapy, 8.8 oz:

                This product isn't all bad and judging from some of the low ratings it strictly says on the container to use a PEA sized amount.

                This product smells great and it's easy to use. My cons were that it made my hair shed really badly and my scalp was itchy. I wash my hair every other day and I still couldn't seem to stop scratching... I used very little on the ends but I also started using this a few days ago so still going to give it a little more time.

                Not all bad but just don't over use it.

                    It is basically a jar of petroleum jelly, it is fairly sticky and will tangle your hair easily. Like what the first reviewer said, it is also very greasy and it will make your hair looks 'wet', I spent two days trying to wash it off but my hair is still in a greasy mess. Please STAY AWAY from this product!

                      I have hair down to my waist and this product is the only thing I use besides shampoo and conditioner. It's great to tame fly aways, use as a deep conditioning treatment, heal dry cuticles, and sooth any rough skin.

                      The ingredients are natural and it isnt tested on animals!
                      A friend bought it for me because she uses it for her skin all the time and now my dad is hooked too!

                      Most people use too much and unfortunately miss out on how great this product is. You need a tiny, tiny bit and I rub my hands together to melt it into an oil. I stay away from my bangs or my roots unless Im using it for deep conditioning.

                      I will continue to buy it and Im glad I found something cheaper than the BioSilk I used to use.

                        This product has so many uses! If your cuticles are dry, your hair is extra frizzy, or you have dry elbows- it just takes a tiny bit! It lasts a while because you dont use a lot. I put a bit in my hands, rub them together so its melted like oil and run my fingers through my hair, esp the ends but not a lot at the roots to avoid a greasy look. If im just trying to tame the frizz, i ll just lightly graze my hands down over my hair, only getting the fly aways.

                        A friend bought it for me because she uses it all the time for her skin and I've now got my dad hooked too!

                        If you use a lot, it will look greasy- like any product. This item is superbly moisturizing and so you only need a LITTLE BIT. My hair goes down to my butt and this is one of the only things I use besides shampoo and conditioner.

                        Sometimes I will put a generous amount into my hair, especially on the scalp, and let it sit for a few hours before washing it as a conditioning treatment.

                        I love that the ingredients are natural and so good for you and that they do not test on animals. Personally, I think it smells great.

                        I used to use Biosilk but this is so much cheaper! It's always in my purse just in case.

                        This is one product I will continue to buy!

                            when I tried product it was super greasy in my hair. My 12 year old said it looked like I had just gotten out of the shower. (so greasy it looked wet) Smells bad also and the next morning when I went to brush my hair it was a tangled mess! Not helping the growing process.
