Oil for the hair can seem counterintuitive and even intimidating due to the fear of having greasy residue, but finding the right one will offer a ton of beauty benefits to your locks and restore your strands, whether you suffer from chemical or heat damage, frizziness, or the effects of environmental stressors. Give them new life with these five hair oils:
1. Percy & Reed Perfectly Perfecting Wonder Treatment Oil+ – If you fancy Percy & Reed’s Totally Intensive Treatment Oil, consider this an upgrade with even better ingredients such as Camellia Seed Oil, Macadamia Seed Oil and Carrot Seed Oil to restore moisture, protect and rejuvenate the hair, and strengthen the scalp.
RM140, available soon at Sephora stores and online.
2. Shiseido Aqua Intensive Oil Unlimited Silk – Developed with Shiseido’s Lasting Veil Technology which locks in moisture, this two-layered oil has a lovely feminine floral fragrance and contains the goodness of Royal Jelly extract and Argan Oil to replenish damaged hair, on top of protecting it from UV damage and heat.
RM120, available at professional haircare stores and salons.
3. OUAI Hair Oil – Jen Atkins’ OUAI haircare has gained lots of traction for good reason. This Hair Oil can be used as a hydrating overnight mask and is packed with African galanga root extract, ama, borage and baobab oils to smooth frizz, seal split ends, offer a high gloss shine, prevent colour from fading, and protect the hair from sun damage.
