The definition of hair oil is very different in my home country. For us hair oil means straight up oils. Coconut Oil, Almond oil, Sesame Oil are the basics. These are then infused and cooked with multiple herbal powders, pastes and strained later to get clear herbal oil. We massage is all over the scalp and wash it as usual. It is a ritual.

Here, in the states, Hair oil is more of a styling product that has silicones in it that smooths the frizz, adds shine to the hair and protects against the bad effects of hot hair tools.

This transformative multi-tasking hair oil is concentrated with restorative Brazilian patauá oil to treat damaged hair. Rich in Omega-9 and fatty acids, it replenishes and strengthens hair strands against daily damage. Smooths frizz and adds shine to seal in sleekness for supple, soft-to-touch hair.
Reduces split ends considerably.
Protects against heat styling tools such as hairdryers, curling irons and flat irons.

Star Ingredient: Patauá Patauá oil, rich in omega-9 and fatty acids, strengthens the internal structure of the hair fiber, leaving hair soft and shiny.

Color, Texture, Consistency
Pale green, slippery, not too thick or dense, light, viscous fluid

It has a very distinct herbal scent. Every product from the PATAUÁ line has this same similar scent. It is a little intense that lingers on for a while, but nothing that is bad or obnoxious. 

I use a few drops (3-4 may be) to palms of hands, rub them together to evenly distribute, and gently glide palms through hair, moving from mid-length to ends. I use it on both dry or damp hair, before or after air or blow drying. Never apply silicone based product on the scalp.

The most important thing and that is what made this product on my good list is the fact that this oil does not weighs my hair down. I have very dry, thin and wispy hair. So even the tiniest amount of oil makes my hair appear greasy and weigh it down. This leaves my hair silky soft and manageable. It eases out the frizz and prevents tangling. It does give some shine to the hair, but not that glossy sheen that I get from using some other products.  I personally prefer high glossy sheen for my dull, thin hair. 

Comes in a cute plastic bottle with a pump. It dispenses adequate amount of product without any leaks. There is a cap that protects the pump.

Final Thoughts
I like this oil. There are many similar products that I have tried in the past and some were hits while a few didn't work. I realized that consistency of these kind of oils matter a lot. For my kind of thin hair, a thicker consistency and highly viscous fluid weighs them down badly, leaving it very greasy and making it appear extra sparse. This one is not too slippy. It definitely is slippery all thanks to the silicones, but way thinner than the other products that I have tried in the past. I wish this imparted a bit more sheen to the hair.
