Dry, thinning hair? This nourishing oil won't leave your locks looking like you stuck your head in a 'grease trap'

This celebrity hairstylist-approved essential promises to increase shine by 75% without weighing hair down — and over 7,000 shoppers are hooked.

If you're mourning the thick, shiny locks of your youth, you're not alone. Age might bring wisdom, but it also dulls and thins your hair! Finding something to return your strands to the sheen of their glossy glory days without weighing them down can be challenging, but we'd like to introduce you to Verb Ghost Oil. It's available on Amazon and is celebrity hairstylist-approved.

Nearly weightless, Verb Ghost Oil is made with natural and nourishing ingredients like moringa oil, bamboo extract and argan oil that hair absorbs quickly to make your locks shiny and frizz-free.

This stuff is made for the stars — it's even graced the locks of celebs like Salma Hayek at Hollywood's most sparkling affair. Her hairstylist, Jennifer Yepez, used the Ghost Oil to get the actress primped and primed for the Oscars in 2023. She also used the brand's Glossy Shine Spray and Volume Texture Spray.

The multitasking elixir promises to enhance shine by up to 75%, fight frizz and flyaways and hydrate hair all at the same time. It's made with good-for-hair ingredients like argan oil and bamboo extract, but the star ingredient is moringa oil. It's loaded with antioxidants, including oleic acid, which hydrates and moisturizes skin and hair.

You can use Ghost Oil as a leave-in treatment for extra hydration, but it can also be used before styling to protect your hair from a curling iron or hairdryer, or you can use it as a finishing oil for added shine. The lightweight oil won’t weigh your hair down, and it’s free from harmful sulfates and parabens, so you can feel good about putting it on your hair.

More than 7,000 Amazon shoppers have already awarded Ghost Oil a stunning five-star rating.

"The Verb Ghost oil is my favorite hair oil because it's weightless," a rave reviewer shared. "I'm so impressed with this hair oil! My hair looks nourished and hydrated without looking like I stuck my head in a McDonald's Grease trap. I highly recommend if you have frizzy and [untamable] hair. Or just want to give an extra boost of nourishment and shine."

"Listen, I used to never blow dry my hair because it got super frizzy," a beauty enthusiast wrote. "This stuff is GAME CHANGING. I now put this in my hair before I blow dry with a Revlon brush (heat protectant too!!) and I get almost no frizz. It smells SO good and makes my hair super soft and shiny. I have random girls coming up to me at the bar and asking how my hair still looks good, and I tell them about this stuff. I've made all my friends feel how soft my hair is now. I literally can’t stop talking about my hair since I started using this."

"Believe the hype," urged a five-star fan. "This stuff actually does what it says it does. For one thing, it doesn't weigh your hair down, even with my thinning hair. It also makes it soft with a nice mellow scent. I've been using it every day since I got it and I'm super impressed."

"Verb Ghost is the only oil that will tame my fine brittle hair," shared a happy shopper. "I apply it while my hair is air drying. The next morning, I will apply it to flyaways. I’ve tried sooo many different hair oils. This one actually works without greasy-looking hair."

Nourishing with a side of shine, this potion is also sulfate-, paraben- and cruelty-free.
