A popular Afro-Caribbean hair product is being used in place of cooking oil by some people who clearly didn't check the packaging.

London student, Coral, spotted something unusual in her friend's kitchen - a bottle of ORS Olive Oil Sheen Spray.

Speaking to BuzzFeed, the 20-year-old revealed she asked her friend why the hair product was in the kitchen, and he replied: "It’s cooking spray."

Coral said she was "shocked" and explained to him that the oil is used for adding hydration and shine to Afro-Caribbean hair, but he was still adamant it was for cooking.

"But it says olive oil," he insisted.

Turns out, Coral's friend isn't the only person getting in a mix up, with many social media users sharing their similar mistakes on Twitter and Facebook.

This last post might explain the confusion.
