Hello there 🙂
In a skin care obsessed universe, it can be pretty easy to forget how much TLC our beloved strands also deserve. Our hair is just an extension of the skin on our face and head, after all, and just like how you want your skin to be protected, moisturized, and shiny, our strands require similar levels of care. Unfortunately, moving through the world of hair care can be very difficult. It would be impossible for every single person to have the same effective skin care routine, and the same goes for hair. Everyone has unique needs that require a unique routine.
After speaking to countless hairdressers and colorists over the years, one product that everyone unanimously approves of is extremely important (and frankly a little underestimated), hair oil. No matter how thick or thin your strands are, or how curly or straight, everyone can benefit from the super nourishing and rejuvenating benefits of a fabulous hair oil. The only problem, of course, is the problem of finding the perfect blend that will suit your unique strand structure. We couldn't all wear the same facial oil on our complexions, and so does hair oil. For example, people with white, blonde, or even silver hair want to stay away (clear) from amber or gold colored hair oils as over time they may literally start coloring your hair. Someone with thick, coarse hair needs a heavier, richer formula than someone with an ultra-fine texture. Research and reviews are vital, and it's important to consider not only your hair type (curly, curly, wavy, or straight) and texture (fine, medium, or thick), but your hair as well
Gates. Some oils add a gem-like sheen while others contain ingredients that are more aimed at repairing and strengthening. Some hair oils are light and promote volume and bounce, while others are heavier and loaded with pampering ingredients. Can you catch our drift?
Fortunately, we've done the heavy lifting by finding 18 of the best hair oils that are great for all hair problems and hair types. Not only did my colleague Courtney Higgs and I put our heads together to select our personal verified favorites, but I also searched the internet for the hair oils that shoppers are obsessed with. Keep scrolling! The 18 best hair oils of all time on the internet are just below that.
Courtney and I love Prose – a bespoke hair care brand that's pretty much the best since sliced bread. (That's coming from someone practically bleeding carbs.)

"I wasn't that pleasantly surprised with a launch, specifically a hair product, forever," says Courtney. Rating: 4.5 / 5 stars, 26 ratings on Sephora.

My former roommate and another beauty editor first introduced me to this French hair oil and it literally changed the texture of my hair. Before I started playing out my shower and wash routine with a healthy marinade of this material, my hair was dry, brittle, and all around sad, and definitely looked sad. But when I started dousing this stuff over my strands for a while before washing (I like to let it sit between 10 minutes and an hour), my hair got a whole new identity – it was soft and smooth and so shiny that it practically glowed. (It's also light enough in tint that I don't worry about staining my platinum blonde color.) Check out the reviews because I'm definitely not in the minority here! The glowing review, "I've been using this for many years and it has always been my favorite product for my hair. There are a few things to consider while using it that aren't covered here. Firstly, this is an oil that does Room temperature a bit solidified. You won't get a product that looks like the one pictured here. It will arrive milky and firm. But don't worry, you just have to warm the bottle up with tap water or soak it in a saucepan for a few minutes with hot water, and it turns into real oil that you can easily pour out. Personally, I use a lot more than recommended, but that's because my hair is over my shoulders. Shorter hair will likely use about twice the recommended amount , long hair about four times. Otherwise, you won't actually distribute it all over your hair. It is helpful to have a wide-toothed comb on hand (not a regular comb; a they can get tangled. If you don't have a comb, just mix it with your fingers until everything is good and feels oily and greasy. 🙂 I leave it for half an hour or so while I do other things. Then I jump into the shower as usual and shampoo. The best part of this treatment isn't even the softness and shine that you get (for days!) After. It's the fact that it kind of adds volume too. This oil gives even fine hair a boost. I would never use any other oil on my hair. It's the best on the market for my money, and although I use more than what the instructions say, one bottle will easily last four months. So it's not that expensive per application. It has a strong floral odor, but I think it's lovely. " Rating: 4.7 / 5 stars, 2510 ratings on Amazon. Although Courtney and I have completely different hair types and textures, we both agree that certain brands are so perfect that they are borderline witchcraft.

Given the number of ultra-rich oils it is made up of (baobab oil, argan oil, sweet almond oil, jojoba oil, sage oil, geranium oil, and vitamin E), you'd think it would leave a residue or that tell-tale fat sensation. Unfortunately not! It is instantly absorbed and provides soothing moisture with no oily side effects. The glowing review: "So I don't usually use oil when doing my hair because it weighs it down.
