I am currently using the AO Sea Buckthorn Leave-in and Curl Activator. It's great product for my hair, but the smell a bit strong. I'm skeptical about placing a fragrance oil in it because then the Leave-in may not work as well.

Have you used AO Sea Buckthorn Leave-in and Curl Activator, but switched because of the smell? If you have switched, is the product that you are using just as good (or better)?:happy11:

    I've tried it and don't use it anymore either, not so much due to smell though. It just wasn't all that in my hair. I don't use anything like it though.

    Have you tried diluting it with distilled water? Someone on another hair board I frequent does that, and I've just not gotten to try it yet.

    I, too, couldn't take the smell. It smells HORRIBLE!!! I had to take it back to the store. I just use an Aubrey conditioner as a leave-in and Upper Management gel by Kiss my Face. It works fine.
    Dare to be......remarkable!!!
