a small pea size amount is more than enough to coat my hair evenly. It doesn't have a pleasant scent, and it is very sticky, making it a bit challenging to use. I have only used this on dry hair, I assume it would be easier to use on damp hair but I tend to forget. I warm it up in my hands before carefully prayer handing it down the majority of my hair and then using my water sprayer to help more of the oil to get off my hands and on my hair. My hair loves this oil. It glows and is incredibly shiny and healthy when I use it and it stops any frizz that I had immediately after use.
I don't really enjoy applying this product onto my hair as it's to hard to distribute all over my hair, and each time i apply it my fingers seems to pull off some hairs since it is so thick. I think it does a good job of hydrating very dry hair though!
