Salma Hayek used this $18 'holy grail' hair oil for her shiny Oscars 'do

The 95th Academy Awards red carpet took the cake for the most glamorous beauty moments in recent history. And one of our favorite drool-worthy hair and makeup looks had to be Salma Hayek’s. While the actress sizzled in a bold orange sequin Gucci gown, she kept things low-key and approachable with bronzy makeup from Makeup by Mario and gorgeous tousled waves thanks to affordable hair products from Verb. The hair oil behind her shiny, frizz-free strands is only $18 at Amazon!

Salma’s hairstylist, Jennifer Yepez, shared a behind-the-scenes look at all the products she used on her Instagram Stories, writing she was “getting Salma Hayak Oscar ready with Verb products.” She used the brand's leave-in mist, texture powder and hydrating masque — but the one item that really stood out to us was Verb’s Ghost Oil, especially after learning the nourishing treatment has nearly 6,000 perfect five-star ratings on Amazon.

The multitasking beauty essential promises to enhance shine by up to 75%, fight frizz and flyaways and hydrate hair all at the same time. The lightweight oil won’t weigh your hair down (as proven by Salma’s voluminous ‘do) and it’s free from harmful sulfates and parabens, so you can feel good about putting it on your hair.

One shopper called it a “holy grail hair product,” before adding: “This stuff is amazing. I heard good things, but I didn’t expect what I got. My hair is frizzy and dry and color-damaged near the bottom. I used one pump and it looked like normal hair. It’s shiny without being oily looking, and the effect seems to last beyond the initial application.”

“This is the best hair oil ever! It’s SO lightweight and leaves my wavy/color-treated hair smooth and shiny. I couldn’t recommend this product more; it’s awesome,” raved another.

A third wrote: “I honestly had no idea this product would suit my needs. I have oily hair so applying more oil to it did not make any sense. My hair was wiry and oily so the worst combination…. [This] instantly softens it and makes my hair look model-ready. I have these natural highlights all over and these crazy curls when I use this product. My hair is not oily and the smell is great. Complete transformation.”

A beauty product with this many rave reviews and an A-list endorsement is hard to find but luckily this one is a verified steal at $18. Grab a bottle for yourself!
