Now that autumn’s approaching, you might find that your hair feels a little drier and more difficult to manage. A combination of factors such as harsh central heating and lower levels of sebum production from the scalp can leave hair in need of some TLC. Luckily, there’s a quick and easy solution: hair oil. If you’re not already in the habit of using oils on your hair, we’ve handpicked 5 of our stylists’ favourites for you to try.
Why Use Hair Oils?
Our scalp naturally produces oil, which helps to keep our hair in good condition – however, for most of us, the oil never gets further than the roots of our hair. Using a hair oil is therefore the best way to get this natural hair hydrator throughout the lengths, without making it look greasy. The benefits of hair oils are numerous: they help to seal the hair’s cuticle, detangle wet hair and protect against heat damage.
5 of the Best Hair Oils
So now you know the benefits of using hair oil, how do you pick which one is best for you? Across our salons and online, we stock around 35 hair oils, so there’s guaranteed to be one that’s perfect for your hair length and type.
One of our bestselling oils – and rightfully so – is the Moroccanoil Treatment. With super-softening Argan oil, this treatment works miracles with just a few little drops. Add some to the lengths of towel-dried hair to speed up drying time, boost shine and detangle even the most unruly of hair.
If you find that some oils feel to heavy in your hair or make it look greasy, then this one could be for you. Redken Diamond Oil has been specially formulated for use on fine hair, with apricot oil helping to lock in moisture and create a glossy finish.
If you have naturally curly hair then you’ll love the results of the Screw It Curl Oil from Bed Head. Enriched with nourishing ingredients including glycerin and Brazil nut oils, this jelly-oil hybrid helps to hydrate curls and leave them smooth and shiny.
Suitable for all hair types, the luxurious oil from Wella’s Oil Reflections range can leave hair up to three times smoother. Infused with macadamia and avocado oils, the formula helps to smooth flyaways, fight frizz and add beautiful shine to hair. This must-have taming oil is also available in a 30ml bottle for smoother hair on the go.
For all the benefits of an oil without the weight, our stylists love the Weightless Dry Oil Leave-In spray from Designline. Infused with eight oils, the lightweight spray works on towel-dried hair to improve manageability, reduce frizz and cut down on blowdrying time.
