What is Tsubaki Hair Oil?

It’s a deeply penetrative hair oil formulated with high concentration of selected camellia oil to deeply protect, moisturize and repair your hair, resulting in a luxurious shine. It can instantly penetrates hair upon application without feeling greasy or sticky and gives a silky smooth finish. It also protects your hair from damage by UV rays and heat from hair dryers (or other styling equipment), while preventing split ends and hair breakage.

Not only that, it has a very nice floral scent! ❤

Traditional harvesting method
Only fully ripe fruits are carefully handpicked, one by one, before they fall to the ground.

Meticulous oil pressing method
Camellia oil is extracted using a traditional, time-consuming method of pressing finely selected seeds.

So how about the product? Let take a look at my hair condition before and after!

IMG_6662 IMG_6667

Had recently went to colored my hair and they are now super dry!! You can see from the above pic, especially the pic on the left.. Scary split end and hair breakage easily! *heartache*

Now let’s start our Tsubaki Hair Oil application…


(Before application)



First, pour a few drop (about 20-cent coin size for mid-length hair) onto the palms and work through the hair. Then, drop a few drops again onto the palms and focus on areas that require extra application.


It may look oily here but that’s because the oil haven’t been really absorb. I would usually rub till my hand doesn’t feels oily anymore and I’m done.


See.. Better right? Not only it looks better, my hair smells good tooo! Somewhere between sweet fruity to light flora scent.. If you’re a Tsubaki product user, you know what I mean! 😀

TIPS:How to prevent flat hair (Particularly recommendable to those who have soft and fine hair) 

Refrain from applying large amount inappropriately and unevenly. Start application from the damaged tips and gradually work upwards to the roots to avoid flat hair

TIPS: How to reduce volume or prevent dry hair (Particularly recommendable to those who have thick and voluminous hair)

Apply an appropriate amount to wet hair and dry it with a hair dryer. Then, spread a small amount onto the palms and apply on bottom half of the hair to reduce the volume.
