Hair Oils: The Best Ones to Try

Estimated Reading Time: 1 minute

I used to think that hair oils were only meant for damaged hair, but they’re actually great for all hair types. Hair oils are like a daily hair treatment that keeps your hair moisturized, especially if you have dry, brittle ends. Hair oils are also great for making your hair look extra smooth and shiny. Plus, they make unruly hair more manageable and are great for anyone dealing with frizziness. 

Looking for the right hair oil? Here are the best hair oils to try for shiny, frizz-free locks:

Best for damaged hair:

A weekly hair mask isn’t enough to treat damaged hair, especially if your hair is bleached or if you have split ends. Treat your hair daily by applying innisfree’s Camellia Essential Hair Oil Serum on towel-dried hair. This hair oil is formulated with fermented camellia oil which repairs and strengthens damaged hair. It’ll also leave your strands feeling softer and shinier!

 

Best for frizzy hair:

Frizzy hair can be hard to manage, especially if you live in a humid environment, but it’s manageable with the right hair oil. To tame constant frizz, go for hair oils that are rich in fatty acids and Vitamin E, like argan oil. 

To get rid of frizziness, you can’t go wrong with TOSOWOONG’s Morocco Argan Hair Oil. With just a few drops of this hair oil, you can say goodbye to flyaway hair. Your tresses will also feel soft and moisturized without feeling or looking oily. 

 

Best for dry hair:

Dry or even straw-like hair can be an issue during the colder months. As we get closer to spring, it’s important to take good care of your hair so you enter the new season with healthy-looking tresses. 

The solution to dry hair is to nourish it with hair oils like Lador’s Premium Moroco Argan Oil, SKINFOOD’s Argan Oil Silk Plus Hair Essence or innisfree’s My Hair Recipe Oil Serum. All these hair oils are perfect for dry hair as they hydrate your hair from within and restore its shine.  If you use heat styling tools regularly, these are the best hair oils to apply before you blow dry, straighten or curl your hair. 

 

Best for fine hair:

For those with fine hair, some hair oils can feel a bit too heavy. To avoid having greasy hair, it’s best to stick to a hair oil that’s lightweight but just as nourishing. 

My Hair Recipe Hair Mist from innisfree gives your hair just the right amount of moisture without weighing it down. For fine dry hair, go for the “Moisturizing” hair mist. For fine damaged hair, use the “Repairing” hair mist. If you have fine curly hair then the ‘Curl Up’ hair mist is ideal as it helps add an oomph to your locks and keeps your curls looking moisturized and bouncy.
