Hair Oils; What's the Verdict?

Hello guys! So, this post is gonna be about a new craze taking over the beauty world; Hair oils. Argon oil, Morrocanoil, TRESemme oil- it doesn't matter what type or brand of oil it is, people jut cant wait to get their hands on the stuff.

First, what's so great about hair oils, anyway? Most oils are infused with fatty acids, omega-3, vitamins and antioxidants that all nourish and protect your hair and scalp, reversing damage and brittleness and leaving your hair super silky and extra soft. All that you need to do is apply a tiny amount of the hair oil onto damp or dry hair, and let it do it's magic. Make sure that you apply most of the amount onto the tips of your hair, as this is the area with the most damage. Furthermore, if you slather on the oil at your roots, you hair is going to look super greasy and disgusting, not sleek and chic.

Just one note of caution before you run out to purchase, the magic of the hair oils is that nearly all of them are derived from nuts and plants that survive in extreme climates. This works great at combating boiling straightening irons and sizzling suns, but if you are allergic to any nuts, PLEASE don't use any hair oil before reading the label thoroughly and deciding if it's safe for you!

However, one bad thing about these oils is that, through excessive use, the oils can start to take the place of the natural water in your hair, which will mess up everything in the hair cuticle. Not good. So, don't use them every minute of everyday!

Here are two options for Hair Oils- a save vs. a splurge;

TRESemme Liquid Gold Argan Oil Infused Perfecting Hair Treatment - £6.99
