It’s as if it’s always “opposite day” when it comes to your hair’s response to your best efforts, and it’s not as if you haven’t tried it all when it comes to possible solutions to get your hair to be more compliant and luxurious.
Whether it’s spending insane money on some fancy shampoo and conditioner “combo” that’s supposedly all the rage in Hollywood nowadays only to find that while it may work great for Scarlett Johansson, it does nothing for you.
Or mixing up some crazy concoctions inspired by old wives’ tales that you then dump on your hair with great hope only to have said hopes resoundingly dashed, you have truly suffered.
However, if you haven’t given up hope altogether, you will want to consider the following: hair oil!
Now, unless you’re the “smarty pants-teacher’s pet” kind of gal who always had her hand up first in class, you are probably aware of some but not necessarily all of the following oils and their particular benefits, let alone tried them all (and in the manner that works best).
The most common include jojoba, almond, Bhringraj, castor, alma, neem, olive, argan, sesame, and coconut oil. These are just a few of the oils that will make your hair more manageable, exhibit greater resistance to heat and styling damage, and generally much healthier.
Suffice to say that, collectively, oils provide a wide range of benefits that ensure your hair will finally start to take you seriously and not just blow you off like the “cool girls” did back in high school.
