MRP: 725 for 100 ml
Cyclopentasiloxane, Cyclotetrasiloxane, Dimethiconol, Argania Spinosa (Argan) Kernel Oil, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Fragrance (Parfum), Red 17 (CI 26100), Yellow 11 (CI 47000).
Packaging: It comes in a transparent bottle with a gold flip cap. The plastic is of good quality and is sturdy. You can see the yellow liquid serum as the bottle is transparent. The name and details are printed on the bottle in black. Be careful while pouring the oil on your hand because the hole is big and if tipped over, a lot of it comes out. It can get messy and sticky if the dispenser is not cleaned regularly.
Formula: It is not your typical hair oil. It feels more like a gel. It is liquidy and not thick and therefore spreads easily. It's non-sticky and dries off very quickly as it penetrates your hair strands immediately. It has an amazing sweet fragrance but it doesn't stay for too long in the hair. The fragrance goes off a soon as the hair soaks up the oil.
How to use it: I take a pea-size amount on my hands and rub it between my hands together to make it warm and then rub it on my semi-damp hair. I start from mid hair and go down on my roots as they get dry and damaged faster. Then whatever residue is left I apply it on the top strands. I do not use this oil on my scalp like regular oil. It makes your hair shiny, smooth and more manageable. It protects it from harmful UV rays. It can be used on colored and salon treated hair. It can also work as a heat protector so you can use it before using hot hair tools of any kind.
I frankly love this oil as I have been using it for a year and a half. I stopped using all other oil and serum after using this one.
I have wavy dry hair and Indian weather doesn't help the condition of my hair. The humidity makes it frizzy and unmanageable but after using this oil. I can proudly say, I can manage my hair very well (even when I don't style them).
You can apply this serum even if you haven't washed your hair but I prefer to use it when my hair is semi-damp and then I comb my hair.
I know a lot of people say not to brush wet hair but I use a wide-tooth comb and go through my hair once it is semi-dry. Update: I have stopped doing this and now I dry my hair first then comb it. I sometimes apply the serum after I semi-dry or sometimes after I dry it completely.
You need very little and therefore the bottle will last you for a year minimum. If you have longer hair you will require more but it will still last you up to 10 months. Therefore making it very economical.
TIP: Conditioning your hair is very important, you can't just depend on this oil. Use it before using hot hair tools as it protects it from the heat and can be used after too for the extra shine or if you have very dry hair.
Availability: It's available online and offline. It's available on Nykaa and Amazon and also some other online sites. You can find this at a better price at beauty stores. It's also available in selected malls and supermarkets.

Update: I finally finished this bottle a few months back and I really miss it. I still love this serum a lot and I will repurchase it after a while since I need to finish some of my other hair serums too. But compared to everything else I have used this is my fav and will remain my fav.
