So, I have a confession... I am a cheapskate when it comes to purchasing hair products! I always have this fear that the products will not work for my hair and it will equate to wasted money. Don't judge me. Nevertheless, this is why I love giveaways and I was stoked (
Also, if you didn't know, Tracee Ellis Ross is the spokeswoman for the Optimum Miracle Oil line of products. Her curls are coveted by many so I was excited to see how they would perform on my 3C/4A hair.

- Multiple Ways to Use
- Hard to Locate
The first thing that comes to mind with this product is that I was not impressed. The first time I tried it was with the LOC Method, which resulted in a twist out. My hair felt great the first day, but then was very dry the next. Typically, my hair can keep moisture in it for at least two to three days so one day of moisture was disappointing.
The next time I tried it, I tried it as a hot oil treatment prior to shampooing. This was definitely my preferred method. It made my hair extremely soft and kept my hair moisturized even after shampooing. The downfall to this was that after these two uses, 3/4 of the bottle was gone. Since the bottle costs around $9 for 4 fl. oz, I do not think that is good amount for the money.
Also, when I first received the oil, I received a question from someone asking where it could be purchased. That's when I discovered how hard this product is to locate. Optimum has a Product Locator and no stores within 25 miles of my area sold the product; however, it can be purchased online.
Would I Purchase?
Honestly, no. I will keep using my trusted coconut oil, which is much more moisturizing for my hair.
