It's easy to consider oil the enemy of a good hair day—grease doesn't exactly equal glamour. And so, applying an oil to a freshly blown out mane may seem counterintuitive.
However, hair oils of the bottled variety offer only positives. In fact, these nourishing formulas are able to repair damage, replenish moisture and optimise hair health all while simultaneously leaving strands feeling silky smooth and enviably soft.
Their versatile nature also carries over to application options; you can apply damp or dry, to smooth split ends, enhance a sleek style, or even as a potent pre-shampoo treatment. However you choose to utilise them, hair oils always equal hydration.
Here, our edit of the best hair oils on the market.
