Hair care essentials - Hair Oil

It's so important to look after your hair! I've only ever dyed my hair once (and it was a ginger wash in/wash out dye) but I still have to keep my hair from being dry and damaged. Heating, styling and dying all contribute to deteriorating your hair's condition. A vital product in the fight against the frizz is hair oil; I've been using it for a bout 2 years now and I can't believe I never did!

Why use hair oil?

Hair oil replenishes the natural oils in your hair - if you heat your hair a lot or wash it every day it can dry it out and leave you with split ends. It is best used on damp hair after washing but it can also be used sparingly on dry hair to tame flyaways. It is also great at reducing the appearance of hair damage and means you can get away with it not being cut for a bit longer! 

How to use hair oil

It is SO important to not put the oil on your roots or you'll end up with really greasy hair! Concentrate it on the ends and only go halfway up the hair shaft; your roots will pull the oil up the hair anyway. 

Recommended hair oils

Cheapest: Hask Argan Oil  - you can also get this at Primark for £2.50 (I have no idea why it has placenta in the title on Amazon O.o) and I used this on holiday last year as I was washing my hair every day due to chlorine in the pool and it was really good for the price!

Mid-rangeL'oreal Extraordinary Oil - this is a bit more expensive (£9.99) but made by the same company that makes the most expensive oil I've tried. Again, a really good hair oil but this one is more refined so soaks into the hair better. 

ExpensiveKerastaste Versatile Beautifying Oil - you can get this at various hairdressers for £25 and is expensive but much better for fine hair as it won't overload it and make it feel too greasy. As I have curly hair which is very dry, I can get away with the cheaper oils. 

I hope I've convinced you of the merits of hair oil and have given you some sort of guide as to which ones to buy if you decide you want to try it!

See you soon and stay insane!
