The best hair oils to use
We’ve seen the great things it can do for our skin, and now it's time to show our hair the same special treatment. When used in the right way, oils are a wonderfully natural way to give your hair the boost it needs to keep it shiny, healthy and happy. And while there are a ton of oils to choose from, we’ve culled the list down to three absolute musts.
So here are our top picks of the best oils and products for your hair, plus why you should be using them...
WHY YOUR HAIR LOVES ARGAN OIL...
A long time devotee to our skin care regimen, argan oil has been hailed for keeping our complexions in check for eons, but it might surprise you to know its benefits don’t stop at your visage.
Often referred to as ‘liquid gold’, argan oil is extracted from the kernels of the argan tree native to Morocco. It’s extremely rich in fatty acids and vitamin E, which makes the oil a great natural alternative for solving skin problems as well as softening your strands.
When your love for heat styling is starting to show in the way of damaged tresses, that’s a sign of either two things: you’re extremely social or you’re not using the Remington Keratin & Argan Oil Nourish straightener. This amazing new tool is infused with keratin and argan oil, which means you can actually protect your strands while you style it. Yes. Dreams really do come true.
The Redken All Soft Argan-6 Oil with Omega-6 will give you silky-soft strands without weighing them down. Pump a small amount into your palms (perfect your portions here), rub them together and then apply this luxe oil to your damp strands from the mid-lengths to the ends for added shine and heat protection.
Hailed as a Holy Grail product, think of the Moroccanoil Treatment as a foundation for your hair. Acting as a base for haircare and styling, it detangles and boosts shine, leaving hair smooth, manageable and nourished with each use. What did we tell you? Holy Grail.
The muk Spa Argan Oil Repair Shampoo and Conditioner duo are a damaged head of hair’s dream thanks to the luxurious blends which contain Moroccan argan oil to smooth frizz and flyaways, for good! Each product deeply penetrates the hair strands to provide a nourishing coating and intense conditioning as well as shine and moisture.
Not too heavy, not too light, the De Lorenzo Defence Argan Finishing Oil is just right for replenishing brittle locks. Ideal for use as a heat protectant and serum, the formula is easily absorbed and adds shine, giving your hair a new breath of life.
WHY YOUR HAIR LOVES COCONUT OIL...
It’s no secret that coconut oil has amazing benefits for our skin, but the magic doesn’t stop there. This deliciously-smelling substance is yummy hair food that supports growth, conditions from within and hydrates every strand...
If the smell of the Schwarzkopf Extra Care Marrakesh Oil & Coconut Express Mousse Treatment isn’t enough to draw you in, the way your hair looks and feels after using it should be enough to convince you. Boosting shine while increasing hydration, this treatment will leave your hair feeling smooth and soft without weighing it down. Smells good, looks even better.
A great three-for-the-price-of-one deal, The Body Shop Coconut Beautifying Oil is easily absorbed and can be used on your body, hair and face to get rid of dryness, restore softness, and nourish from head to toe.
Specifically formulated for dry and damaged hair, Palmer's Coconut Oil Shampoo and Conditioner remove product build-up without stripping your hair of its colour while adding back shine, nourishment and volume.
WHY YOUR HAIR LOVES ABYSSINIAN OIL...
Also known as organic crambe seed oil, abyssinian is intensely hydrating but extremely light in weight and texture, making it brilliant for fine, thin or greasy hair that can easily become lank if overloaded.
Say hello to soft, manageable strands when you use the ELEVEN Australia Smooth & Shine Anti-Frizz Serum. Designed to control frizz and flyaways, this serum leaves hair soft and shiny, sans the greasy look and feel.
Ultra-light, ultra-smooth, ultra-awesome, the non-greasy Fudge Light Hed-Ed Hair Oil mist fights humidity and frizz with just a few spritzes. Use it as a styling product, treatment or finishing oil to leave your hair looking a million bucks - or like you’ve just spent that much on it at the salon.
