Product Trend - Hair Treatment Oils

Oil Essences for Healthy Hair

Natural oils have been used for moisturizing, antioxidant and protective benefits for hair and skin for centuries. There has been a recent resurgence, especially with argan oil, but also manketti nut, primrose, abyssinica, tiare flower and other oil-laced treatments and styling elixirs, with many new products popping up all of the time. Here is just a taste of what’s available.

MoroccanOil Treatment
Vitamin rich with powerful antioxidants, this treatment oil hydrates, nourishes, and restores hair, increases elasticity and detangles tresses, softens thick and unruly hair, and controls frizz. This formula protects hair from damage caused by drying or over-processing, even environmental elements and restores it to its natural condition.

Macadamia Healing Oil Treatment
This lightweight oil adds moisture and nutrients for shine and increased manageability while providing UV protection. It can be mixed into color for improved absorption resulting in longer-lasting applications. Natural UV protection extends the life of color and reduces blow dry time.

Joico K-PAK Color Restorative Styling Oil 
This weightless formula can be used as both a treatment and styler. It contains a blend of manketti, argan and evening primrose oils, to help seal and nourish the cuticle—preventing premature color fading. Conditions hair for softness and smoothness. As a styling aid, it reduces drying time and provides shine without weight or build-up.

Biolage ExquisiteOil 
Contains weightless Moringa oil, a clear, odorless botanical that contains antioxidants to protect strands from environmental stressors while infusing shine. It cushions strands with emollients and leaves a healthy shine. 

Rusk Sensories Wellness Oil
This rich treatment contains oils from the Tahitian Tiare flower, the Moroccan argan tree and Ethiopian Abyssinica. Rusk Sensories Wellness Oil includes panthenol, hydrolyzed silk and mango butter to cleanse, condition and treat hair. It offers a color-safe, organic hair care experience.

Agadir Argan Oil Treatment
This treatment oil repairs, smoothes and strengthens dry, brittle, frizzy and overworked hair. It contains vitamin E, antioxidants and essential fatty acids and protects against heat styling tools and UV rays.

How to use oil products: 
Most oils are best applied to clean, damp hair, working a small amount in from the mid shafts to the ends – the areas that typically need the most moisturizing and protection. If your scalp is dry, a very small amount can be massaged through, just be aware that it may hamper any root lift efforts you may try to achieve during style. After working the oil in, comb through to help distribute the product and then either air-dry or blow-dry as you normally would. You’ll notice a quicker dry time and softer strands. If you are going for a sleek look, add a few drops to your hands and smooth your palms over dry, flat ironed hair to take down any flyaways. If you have any of the product left, most oils make for a great hand and skin moisturizer too.
