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.

A little goes a long way

By Likexotics

from stanwood

Comments about Sebastian Dark Oil:

I have thick curly hair, I flat iron it...it's only two years old, I am 58 and lost it all to chemotherapy. I absolutely love this stuff. It makes your hair so soft and manageable. I tried it at the store and bought it immediately. I highly recommend it if you like soft shiny beautiful hair...the price tag is worth it, a little goes a very long way!

After I wash and condition my hair a put this product in my hair and let it air dry. Right before I straighten my hair I put some more in and the end result was amazing. I received multiple compliments on how healthy, shiny and soft my hair was.....try it trust me you'll love it!

Amazing Product

By Allie

from Arizona

Comments about Sebastian Dark Oil:

I have really dry, curly, frizzy hair with too much volume. I have tried a lot of drug store hair oils in the past and have never been satisfied- they just do not work as well as this. My hair stays smooth, shiny, manageable, and frizz free. I use a pump when my hair is wet, and another pump when I'm done styling. It does not make my hair too oily. The smell is also amazing! It's definitely worth the price tag, and a little goes a long way.

Absolutely love this serum!

By Mrs glenn

Comments about Sebastian Dark Oil:

Smells amazing & smooths out my hair without weighing it down or making it look greasy! My hair has a dramatically different texture since using this! I have long thick but fine hair so I use 2 1/2 pumps on my hair when damp then 2 1/2 more after blow drying & before putting my curlers in & the outcome is wonderful! No more frizzies during the cold & hot months & my hair shines like healthy hair should!

I use this before diffusing my curls. Smells great and works well. I like that the smell stays with your hair, despite adding other products.

    Comments about Sebastian Dark Oil:

    This product is amazing. It smells great, makes my hair shinny and silky smooth. I have been having problems with my hair after it was very damaged with highlights. It took me months to get my hair to feel like hair again. I keep cutting and cutting it to get rid of the damage which upsets me because i want to grow my hair. The color is beautiful but it will so much better with longer hair. This product literally saved my hair. It makes my hair look shiny and healthy instead of damaged and dull. Its not greasy. It makes my blowouts look super healthy.

      Comments about Sebastian Dark Oil:

      I have curly hair so I use an oil every time I wash my hair. I was excited to use the oil because I have had great experiences with Sebastian products in the past. The oil smells great but, doesn't work any better than the less expensive oils that I have been using. This one is not one to blow the bank on ladies!

          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! :-)
