Hair Oils For Dry, Damaged Hair

Mention hair oil and the word “greasy” pops up first in our heads. These formulas, however, are here to change our minds.

The hair oils we’ve picked are lightweight yet moisturising to maintain a balance of hydration and shine throughout the day. They aren’t just for thick, coarse manes; fine frizzy hair can reap its benefits too.

After shampooing or before styling, apply the product to your hair, avoiding the roots. Ahead, discover the worthy additions to your hair care arsenal.
