We like to think of hair oils as one of those unsung heroes in the beauty world. They work hard at keeping our locks healthy and lovely, yet often take a backseat to more prominent beauty staples like lipstick and dry shampoo. We believe in spreading the love, especially when it comes to our hair, so we want to celebrate some of our favorite hair oils and the miracles they work on manes of all types!
Fine/Thin Hair: Kerastase Elixir Ultime Rose Millenaire
Fine-haired ladies are typically fiercely protective of each fragile strand of hair on their head … and with good reason. You know all-too-well that the life of your locks can be fleeting as each of these little hairs is prone to breakage or death-by-hairbrush. Your fine hair is also no stranger to oil, as it naturally presents itself just a day or two after washing. That doesn’t mean you should avoid oils altogether. Pump your strands with nourishment by adding this little elixir into the mix. Packed with antioxidant ingredients, its main purpose is to protect your hair and strengthen it without weighing it down.
Color-Treated Hair: Garnier Fructis Marvelous Oil Color Illuminate
As much as we love to experiment and switch up our hair color, the process can do quite a number on our strands, right? Hair dye is known to dry out hair and suck the moisture right out of each strand, leaving it looking “blah” -- that is, if you don’t care for it accordingly. Keep your hair’s moisture levels right where they need to be by enlisting the help of this “marvelous” oil. Designed specifically for color-treated hair it’s natural oils help illuminate and protect your locks.
Dry/Frizzy Hair: Redken Argan-6 Hair Oil For Dry Hair
Not all of us were lucky enough to be born with naturally soft, luscious (OK, most us weren’t). And, with all that heat and blowdrying, we need all the help we can get to keep our hair out of “dry and frizzy” territory. Do your due diligence by adding this argan-oil-infused formula to your hair care routine. Simply apply it to damp or dry locks for long-lasting conditioning and softening.
All you curly-haired ladies are probably used to people touching your hair and fawning over your lovely, effortless waves. Little do they know that with curls comes great responsibility. Keeping your hair moisturized and hydrated can mean the difference between bouncy, soft ringlets and a bird’s nest. Avoid the latter by trying this natural formula that fortifies and replenishes curls, putting the spring back into their step!
Thick Hair: Matrix Biolage ExquisiteOil Softening Treatment
Like every hair type, thick hair comes with its own set of troubles. More often than not, thick-hair probs involve coarseness and lack of manageability. Show your thick mane who’s boss by throwing in this luxurious oil that tames frizz and flyaways and softens your (many) strands.
