Blue Ocean Hair Care Oil

Got this during my trip to Turkey few months back. I am not sure if Blue Ocean is Turkish brand or it comes from neighboring countries.
This is one of those pre-shampoo treatments. You are supposed to apply and massage the oil to the hair and scalp, then wait for 30-45 minutes. Shampoo and condition as usual after that.

First, the packaging… plastic bottle with spray nozzle to dispense the oil. But since the oil is of cooking oil consistency, I do think the spray nozzle is not so helpful. Yes, it does eliminate the risk of the bottle tipple over and spilling its content… but I just don’t like the idea of spraying 2-3 times before getting enough oil for my thick and coarse hair. But hey, this might be a godsend for those with shorter, finer hair- who wont need as much oil as I do.
Here’s the list of ingredient: sesame oil, sweet almond oil, pine oil, nettle seed oil, chamomile oil, lavender oil, myrtle oil, eucalyptus oil, wheat oil, castor oil, rosemary oil, coconut oil, olive oil, vitamin e, vegetable oil.
While the ingredient is full of fragrant oils, the oil itself is not as wonderful smelling as I imagined in the beginning. It smells faintly of something I cant point my finger on… not nice, but not repelling… just strange smell-which dissipates quickly after application.
The oil rinses easily if you massaged your hair thoroughly during shampooing. I just wash my hair as usual then condition. It does make my hair softer and more manageable, But not extraordinarily so.
Not a necessary addition in my hair care routine. It does make my hair softer and more manageable, but no extraordinary result here.
