Garnier Fructis Wunder-Öl Hitzeschutz & Pflege (Miraculous Oil Heat Protection & Care)
What Garnier promises:

- quicker hair drying
- anti frizz effect
- soft and shiny hair
- perfectly protected hair
What I liked:
Firstly I totally love the concept of a hair oil with heat protection as it's a combination of two products I would use regularly. You really don't need much of the oil, one little drop is enough for my long, thick hair. It makes my hair feel really soft and it also looks shinier. Argan oil is of course one of the best oils you can use for your hair so I really appreciate that they used it. I don't really have huge frizz problems but I used this oil one some rainy days and I always felt my hair would still look good in the evening. Oh, and I should mention that the smell is really good, quite sweet.
What I disliked:
There is nothing which I really can't stand about this product but of course it has some disadvantages as well. As I only use very little of the oil, in order not to make my hair look greasy, I can't be sure if all of my hair is protected from the heat (but in fact you can't be sure about that with any product). Furthermore I felt that my hair itself gets hotter when I straighten it after using the oil. Last but not least, this product does yet again contain silicone oil, which is quite annoying for someone who tries to turn silicones down.
Even though I couldn't say if my hair dried more quickly, this product keeps its promises and makes your hair tangibly softer. I'm not sure if I would use it as a heat protector forever but I like it as a hair oil to be used before drying my hair. The only really bad point however are the silicones. All told I can imagine rebuying the oil after having used it up.
Have you been trying this or similar hair oils? Have you found hair oils without silicones? What else do you use as heat protector?
