REVIEW -- Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Cream

Hey everyone! Today I have a review of Fekkai's Brilliant Glossing Creme for you. Since my hair has been flip-flopping from blonde to brunette, it's been looking a little worse for wear lately.. and I'm definitely well past time for a trim. I can't stand having scraggly looking ends, and no matter what I've tried they won't stay smooth anymore. Even though I'm generally wary of any hair product containing olive oil, I figured it was worth a shot.

Fekkai's Brilliant Glossing Olive Oil Creme is a frizz-fighting creme that boosts shine with an encapsulated shine-release complex, and seals the hair's cuticle for added smoothness. It is available at salons, Ulta, various etailers, and comes in 3 sizes: 7 oz ($34), 4 oz ($25), and 1.6 oz ($9).

For best results, you should apply a "pea sized" amount to damp or dry hair and then work the product through.

Olive oil hair products aren't usually my favorites because they weigh down fine hair and can tend to make it look greasy, so I let Fekkai's Brilliant Glossing Creme sit on my bathroom counter for almost a month before I broke down and tried it. But when my ends could no longer be tamed by Argan oil, I figured it was time to break out the "intense" product.

Using the smallest "pea sized" amount possible on dry hair, I was instantly impressed that the creme doesn't feel heavy or greasy. It's a little bit thin,  absorbs quickly, and leaves no oily residue behind on my hands when I'm done! Oh.. and the smell? Amazing. Light, but a little bit spice-y.. It's very fresh and clean.

I concentrated most of the product on my ends, and it did make my hair look a bit piece-y and weighed down. After a few passes with my flat iron though, my hair was shiny, smooth, and my ends were definitely tamed! When I've used the product on wet hair, my hair looks normal after blow drying. It's not weighed down or greasy looking at all.

Overall, I really like the Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Creme. It does a great job of smoothing my hair without weighing it down, and I enjoy the smell. I think it's a bit pricey (1.6 ounces for $9).. but since you use so little, it will last a long time. I have medium-long hair and haven't even made a dent in my 1.6 oz tube after several uses.

I think the creme is a great option for people who don't like to use Moroccan or Argan oil, or who need a product that's a bit more intense. 

I'm going to give it a 4.0 out of 5 star rating.
RATING: 4.0 out of 5 STARS
