I received a complimentary sample of the Sebastian Professional Dark Oil Lightweight Shampoo from PINCHMe to review and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I loved this shampoo! I typically stay away from shampoos that contain a lot of oils, as my hair tends to be very oily at the roots even though my ends are on the dry side. My hair is color treated with blonde and brown balayage, so it is important for me to use a shampoo that is color treated safe. The smell of the shampoo is nice and pleasant, my boyfriend actually really enjoys the smell as well which a good smelling shampoo is a must for me! The texture of the shampoo is similar a lot of other argan oil products I've tried in the past, but this a better consistency where it's not too oily, it's thick and suds up at just the right amount when you scrub your scalp which I really like. It's super light weight and doesn't weight down your hair at all despite their being hydrating oils. I was able to use it for 6-8 washes and I was really shocked that it didn't make my hair more oily, it actually seems like my hair is easier to style and hold volume. By far the best part is that my hair feels so much more hydrated and this has made my dry ends drastically better and smoother. I've gotten a lot of compliments asking what I've been using because my hair looks so smooth and silky! I'm a big fan of this!!
The shampoo isn't my favorite. It did make my hair shiny, smooth, and moisturized without weighing it down or making it greasy like most oil based shampoo products do. The scent is what got me. The scent is heavily manly. It's a scent you would expect from a men's body wash, very musky and woodsy. And it's overpowering to the point I only used the shampoo twice because the smell gave me a headache and made me smell like a man. I'm more into fruit-based scents. However, my 19-year-old son loves it. He has extremely curly hair and he really liked the moisturizing properties of this shampoo. It cut down on his frizz big time, moisturized his curls without weighing them down and stretching them out. He likes the scent, but again he's a man. I did not like the companion conditioner at all. It was too heavy for my fine wavy blonde hair. But again, my son loved it. It did add a little bit of weight to his curls, so the next time around he used less of it mixed with a tiny bit of shampoo so that it wouldn't leave so much deposit behind in the hair. I was also surprised at the amount of chemicals in the shampoo reading the label. I try not to use products so full of chemicals, but in the hair care industry it's hard to get away from. I'm not a big fan of oil based products either, as I have fine hair and they tend to make it greasy. But if you have very dry hair, this would be a great product. I received a free sample of the shampoo and its companion conditioner from pinch me in exchange for a review. If you like the heavy musky more manly scent , And you like an oil based shampoo and conditioner, this product would probably work great for you. I don't particularly care for those attributes, so the shampoo wasn't for me. But my son really likes it.

Purchased this because my hairstylist recommended it. My hair is fine at the moment due to hair loss and she said she personally used this her self (she has fine hair too) I wanted to love it but the scent is off putting to me and it leaves my hair greasier than any other shampoo I've tried.
Boo from Modesto, ca
This shampoo is overall pretty good, I'm growing my hair out so unfortunately my mid to ends are dryer then the top due to dying. With this shampoo I would have to use extra leave in and a oil to calm down frizz due to it drying out that part of my hair more. If my hair was all natural without being dry then this product would work great! So in the end I would say it's not for dry hair. I probably will go back to it when my hair is grown out..
Jessica from long island ny
I purchased this based on all the good reviews but unfortunately it didn't work for me, my hair felt like straw after shampooing and I couldn't go as long in between washes as I normally do either

I'm picky when it comes to my shampoo and conditioner so when I got a travel set of this and the conditioner for free from Ulta I hesitated on using it for months. So I finally gave it a try and the smell is definitely a little manly but it isn't horrible just different. The shampoos lathers very well and is very light weight and works good. The condition is really nice as well. After my hair dried I noticed it helped tame my frizz without weighing my hair down at all, which is hard to do a lot of the time. It made my hair very soft and shiny without all the greasiness that comes along with that also. Over all it is a very good set and I would definitely purchase.

I love the scent, the way it makes my hair feel. My hair looks shiny!!!
Carmi D from Spartanburg, sc
I use this product daily, my hair is in better shape now than ever before, I'd recommend this to anyone with dry hair but also normal hair, its just that good. Maybe pricey but it last a while and you spend as much buying junk shampoo over the course of time so I promise the stuff is worth it!
Karenq from Riverside,Ca
Sebastian Dark Oil Lightweight Shampoo has been great to my hair. It is now more soft and manageable. I received a sample from PINCHme and will continue with this shampoo.

Court from Jersey Shore, NJ
I received a complimentary sample of the Sebastian Professional Dark Oil Lightweight Shampoo from PINCHMe and I am so glad I did! The smell of the shampoo is so nice, and what I love about it is that it actually lasts well after you wash your hair, and not fade away like most do once your hair dries. The fact this is "oil" does not mean it will leave your hair oily. I actually have very oily hair, that many times gets very oily feeling by the end of the day. It's been almost 24 hours since I washed my hair and it is not oily or dirty feeling at all.
Deanna H from New Castle, DE
I received a free sample of SEBASTIAN PROFESSIONAL DARK OIL LIGHTWEIGHT SHAMPOO from PINCHMe. I really loved the woodsy smell. It was a pleasant surprise from the more fruity scents you get with a lot of shampoo brands. The consistency is the same as any good brand of shampoo, thick, sudsy, etc…While the bottle and name looks exotic, the name is confusing. I was expecting literally a dark colored shampoo. Nevertheless, there's nothing to complain about. The pricing is in line with other reputable brands. I'd buy this SEBASTIAN DARK OIL LIGHTWEIGHT SHAMPOO if my other regular brands are either too expensive or aren't available.
DeeDeedumdum from North Carolina
I got a sample from PinchMe for the SEBASTIAN PROFESSIONAL DARK OIL LIGHTWEIGHT conditioner. I was a biiiiiig fan of the smell, and even more so of the way it worked. It was creamy, and as advertised, lightweight. I hate when conditioners just add a coating on the top of your hair. But this one felt like it actually was hydrating and putting oils back into my hair. Big fan...10/10 would recommend.
Aliak from Paramus
Very good product to use if you a thick curly or weavy hair type. This shampoo has a mild soothing smell which is an added feel good factor.
Dove from North Arlington NJ
Infused with a special blend of oils
Adds body to the hair
Ashley from Philadelphia
I received this product complimentary to try. I love the way it left my hair feeling soft and shiny and smelled great even the next day. It did not make my hair oily either which I tend to have a problem with.
AAKK from New Orleans
I received this as a FREE product from PINCHme. I enjoyed his shampoo, it left my hair feeling clean but not stripped. I have heavily bleached hair so many shampoos leave my hair feeling like straw. This did not. I would buy and continue to use this.
Kenny from Pa
Love the way it made my hair feel after the he shower
Erica from California
It left my hair soft and felt volume. It didn't weigh down my hair or leave it oily.
Bethany from New York State
Sebastian Professional Dark Oil Lightweight Shampoo left my hair clean and shiny. I had less hair shedding than with my previous shampoo, and my scalp felt less oily. My only complaint is the scent, which is overwhelmingly strong, and smells like a men's cologne. I received this product free from PINCHme in exchange for an honest review.
Mel from Minooka, IL
I got this wonderful sample for free thru a sample promotion and was able to try it about a month. It was better than my head and shoulder or treatment I use to use. I noticed it was easier to COMB my wet hair. I'm glad I had the opportunity to try it
