Dark Oil

3.2 oz Item 2305849

Find in Store-

It's not what you think it is. What if..

...it was a gel at touch but a hair oil in performance.
...it was caring, but a styling aid. Amplifying shine and doubling the smoothness* for up to 48 hours while providing body and control.
...the oil disappeared into the hair in seconds, thanks to the new DiffusX Technology, leaving no trace behind, just a wonderful, long-lasting effect.

What if it was dark, but light? Sebastian dark oil an evanescent styling oil that replenishes from the inside out to smoothen the cuticle and add body, then disappears from hair. Formulated with sandalwood, cedarwood and argan oil. Protects hair against UV damage.

*vs. untreated hair
Apply 1-2 pumps to dry or damp hair, through mid-lengths and ends, and style.

Precautions: Flammable. Keep away from sources of ignition. Keep out of reach of children.

Comments about Sebastian Dark Oil:

I have middle aged, over processed hair and was longing for the beautiful hair of my youth. A clerk recommended this...i was skeptical, but desperate. This product is like magic...tames the frizz, softens my hair, not heavy or greasy, AT ALL. Really ladies....this is different!

    First tried this when my hairstylist used it on my hair before drying. Loved the smell (reminds me of the beach) and my long, thick hair feels like silk. I hope Sebastian never discontinues this or changes the formula.

      This oil has tamed my hair in the humidity that is forever in Florida! I love how it makes my hair soft & shiny. I love earthy woodsy scents & this oils scent is amazing! The only complaint is how pricey this product is but I am hoping with just 2 drops a day it will last me a long time!

            Comments about Sebastian Dark Oil:

            This product is awesome, i got a sample and immediately purchased it! This works so well to control frizz, keep my aging hair shining and not greasy looking. My hair is dyed and waist length, at age 54 keeping it from braking and looking good is a chore. This is well worth the money. I threw out all of my old products!

              Comments about Sebastian Dark Oil:

              I was skeptical of this product- I had never heard of it before, but the reviews were so amazing that I got it when Ulta had it half off. I WILL PURCHASE AGAIN! Even when not on sale. I have very damaged hair from dying it, and it usually frizzes when it dries, even with all the argan oil and other leave in products for frizz. This product leaves my hair feeling soft, it weighs it down without feeling heavy or greasy. It vanishes into your hair leaving it silky with tons of movement. Two words: BUY IT! You won't regret it.

                Hands down my favorite hair product. I've fallen in love with this entire line, but I just can't live without this product! Makes my hair super soft and manages my frizz. I'm in the process of growing out my relaxer and this is definitely easing the transition. The price tag is painful, but this oil is worth every single penny

                      I have very thin & damaged hair so frizz and dryness are big issues. Oil do not work because it makes my hair look greasy within hours if not immediately. This product feels like an oil in my hand when it goes on but it really does dry up like it claims to - meaning my hair is not oily. It actually does not look damaged after using it. HIGHLY recommend this and I a very rarely take the time to review products but this one is deserving. Hey, use it once and return it if you don't like it but don't use more or Ulta will not take it back.

                          Dark Oil replenishes from the inside out to smooth the cuticle and add body; it does not weigh the hair down. It is formulated with Sandalwood, cedar wood and argon oil. This product protects against UV damage and is great for ethnic hair types that are kinky in texture. Enjoy! :-)
