    I've never used WGO but I have used the Doo Gro oils and got good results with them. I stopped using them because it's cheaper to mix up my own oils that I already have in my kitchen.I remember the Doo Gro oil had a mild, pleasant scent to it.

    I tried this a while back. I liked how it made my hair feel. However, I find I prefer "pomade/grease" form products. I also wasn't too big a fan of the fragrance. I'd rather apply that bacon-smelling tar hair grease than WGO.

    I discovered this before I discovered the hair boards. I don't know if it was wild, but I'll say this it kept my new growth soft and manageable and it filled in rather nicely my edges. I really think it worked well for me. But I just really don't like the smell.

    I used WGO when I first started taking care of my hair for real in 2005. It was great for edges, pre-shampoo or hot oil treatments. I used it up for about 2 years and replaced it with other oils. DH used to complain about the smell.

    It can go bad from a number of factors:
    1) Keeping it longer than the recommended shelf life. (Respect the recommended shelf life. Use up your oils before they expire.)
    2) Not storing it properly; e.g., keeping it in the sun, keeping it in a warm, humid place, not storing in proper containers.
    3) Introducing liquids or something foreign that can make it "go bad".

    Proper storage and usage is a must! You'll know it's bad because it'll smell rancid or musty.

    This is one of the first hair products I started using since my HHJ. It has a great consistency and is the only oil that made my hair soft. I didn't mind the smell at all. Since then I've replaced it with JBCO they give similar results, but JBCO seemed to thicken my hair more.

    As for growth, WGO didn't do anything in that department. They should change their name :look:

    OT, but I'm confessing that I always thought WGO was wheat germ oil. Thanks for clearing up the confusion! I'm not gonna try it though because I really like JBCO.

    ^^^Yeah, someone started a thread about the confusion. I think they clarified by stating that Wild Hair Oil is Whgo instead of WGO.
    Ok, I add peppermint oil and black cherry oil to diffuse the stinky smell in both original and yellow bottle. I really like both the original ( used to grease my scalp) and the moisturizer ( used to seal in moisture daily).

    What type of shampoo are you using to wash this out with? You know, all shampoo's are not created equally.

    I have been using this for a while now...about 3 times a week with a baggy but my hair is in braids under my wigs so I don't know if its giving me growth spurts but it does keep my hair soft after I moisturize! I dont plan on stopping anytime soon.

    I used WGHO consistently for the first two years after I was natural. Then the BSS by me stopped carrying it for some reason. Then a few months ago it showed up in a different bottle with a different scent (IMO.) Well when I used it before, I did get the growth and the softness, now this time around all I get is the smell and the itchies like no one's business. I scratch like I have fleas whenever I use this stuff now. I'm so sad about it too. Has anyone else noticed a change in the formula?

    I just bought a bottle a couple of weeks ago. It smells horrible! I guess I'll use it on my nape area and my temples for now, maybe twice weekly. I'll put some all over my hair and scalp maybe a few hours after I get ready to wash my hair.

    I used WGHO years ago, really started using for the first time I think sometime in 2003. It was in the white/green bottle back then. I still have an old applicator bottle of WGHO that I just used up and started putting other oils in. I noticed they changed the packaging and the website...it used to have many testimonials. WGHO always kept my hair soft, shiny, and it did help a lil' wit growth, and I only stopped using b/c smthn bttr came along---MTG!!

    ETA: The old formula was not a bad smell at all...they must have changed the formulation if yall are saying it smells horrible...the old version had very simple ingredients: olive oil, jojoba oil, coconut oil, ergocalciferol (vitamin D), choline, inositol, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, calcium, natural color, fragrance. I actually rather liked WGHO (old formula) b/c it was a good maintenance product for my ends and scalp.

    I've also been using this product for awhile and it's great! I've been mixing it with mega tek and the growth is amazing.

    I had to stop...it stank too bad and I noticed how sticky it gets around the bottle. Had me thinking that I would have problems with build up, then moisture retention problems, then breakage...

    I was in the BSS store and passed this and almost got it. I might go back and get it.

    I really like this oil and I believe it aids in hair growth. When it's on my scalp I feel it doing something. It also moisturizes my scalp. It's also a natural product. I did see extra growth.

    I've looked for it in BSS and can't find it.

    I ordered it off EBay like a dummy, they have it in my local BSS. I think Amazon has it too.

    It keeps my new growth lubricated and soft. Doesn't help me with growth, but it helps control breakage.
