“MY HAIR QUITE OFTEN TENDS TO BE THE (UNINTENTIONAL) TALKING POINT OF MY INSTA IMAGES, PARTLY, THANKS TO MY FAMILY HAVING THE STRONGEST, NATURAL BLONDE GENES IN THE BLOODY WORLD, BUT ALSO, BECAUSE I LOOK AFTER IT.”
Hair oils – something that has been shouted about by beauty blogs and magazines for a while now, but more increasingly within the last few years with the likes of Argan and coconut oil bursting onto the mainstream, beauty scene. My hair quite often tends to be the (unintentional) talking point of my Instagram images, partly, thanks to my family having the strongest, natural blonde genes in the whole bloody world, but also because I look after it. Admittedly I don’t use heat every day, have never coloured my hair and kind of let it do it’s own thing, but primarily – I nourish it often!
Slathering over your hair for an overnight moisture soak or massaging into the ends to tame fly-aways, I’ve noticed my hair has become so much more resistant to the elements now that I’m regularly treating my locks to some goodness! Whether you have thick, fine, curly or straight hair – there’s an oil here for all, regardless if you favour a thicker or silkier formula, I’ve founded up my top picks and why you can benefit from having some oils in your life (and locks 😉 )
Ahh Argan oil – something that’s been shouted about for the last couple of years and for good reason! Lee Stafford is without a doubt, one of my fave hair care brands and I LOVE the argan oil range (the shampoo & conditioner are amaze!) for when my hair is screaming at me for a moisture hit. I love this nourishing miracle oil as it’s particularly hydrating yet lightweight, a firm favourite for the last year for taming my flyaway, smoothing damaged ends and giving my locks a moisture surge!
THE BEST FOR FINE HAIR (AND THOSE WORRIED
ABOUT OILS WEIGHING DOWN YOUR LOCKS!)
Batiste has always been a go to of mine for brilliant and affordable Haircare and this Hydrating Oil Mist certainly delivers the goods at £4.49 ! It’s the perfect, fine hair friendly hair oil and barely feels like you have anything on at all. A super fine mist means you have loads of control over how much product is on your locks.
Infused with oils to help reduce hair breakage, deliver hydration and leave a beautiful, subtle shine on your hair this is my go-to when I don’t want products to weigh down my locks, so amazing if you don’t like the feel of usual oils or serums!
THE GAME CHANGER
I’ve been using the Percy & Reed Wonder treatment oil for nearly a year now and I’m always falling back to this one as it ticks all of the boxes: A multi-tasker, light weight, beautiful (but subtle) scent, lovely formula, a pleasure to apply and makes my hair feel wonderfully silky and quenched! A little goes a long way so you only need the tiniest of drops to warm in your hands and then apply through the lengths. I love to apply this one whilst my hair is still damp, out of the bath for a pampering treat – leaves my hair smelling gorgeous!
This Rare Oil treatment is a fab all rounder – body, face, hair, I LOVE to pack this one whilst I’m away to keep my skin and hair happy! A little goes a long way with this one so you get some bang for your buck and I love the dropper application on this bottle meaning there’s no spill! The non-greasy formula is perf if you’re like me and have fine hair and are worried about oils making your hair look unwashed! I love to rub this into the ends of my hair to give them some moisture or massage into my scalp before shampooing if winter is leaving my skin and scalp a little bit dry! Also great for rubbing on limbs for a holiday-like glow – I LOVE good multi-tasker!
THE PEOPLE PLEASER
The Moroccanoil treatment is a fab all rounder – men, women, frizz, dehydration or fine hair, this is a fab one for all complaints and deeply nourishes for a total hair treat! I love the size of this bottle – small enough to pack in a travel bag for a mid-trip hair pick me up but large enough so you can LOADS of uses from it!
I also love how rich and luxe feeling this one is – I love to pour a few drops into my hands, warm the product up and treat my hair to a really hydrating oil! I also love to slather this all over my hair if I’m having a pamper evening, wrap in a towel and leave in before showering it out in the morning for a super, moisture boost!
