I bought some hair moisturising oil...
Having used it tonight for the first time today I asked OH if my hair is
"shiner" ?

& he said "it has a vinyl silk sheen"...

It could be worse he could have said vinyl matt sheen.

Well I was a bit worried incase I used too much & ended up with a lard head...I guess if that had happened he'd have just presented me with the swarfega! :-(
