Oat Hair Treatment Pack
Explanation:
I think this sounds right when you're talking about a product like this. I'd buy it! You could also put in 'root' somewhere buy I had a hard time fitting it in, it sounds strange.

oat treatment


Explanation:
A frequently used, commercialised product is 'hot oil treatment pack for hair', to 'add life and vitality' (as the blurb says) to your hair.

At first I thought 'mascarilla' was for the face, as that is more it's literal meaning, to 'mask' the face, e.g. , but I see it's for the hair, so you can't call it a mask. Yet to call it an 'oil' unless it's really an oil, would be inappropriate.

I suggest the following, depending on the sententence/context:

oat treatment pack for the hair
OR
oat hair treatment (product)

Pack is OK here, becuase we also say 'face pack' to refer to 'mascarilla' for the face.

Hope this is of some help.

hairpack or oatpack


Explanation:
The cosmetics industry uses the term "pack" when talking about beauty treatments using a thin layer of a product ontop the face/hair/skin. Thus:
facepack=mascarilla facial
hairpack=mascarilla capilar
oatpack=mascarilla de avena
