THE GOOD OIL

Simply You Style - - Simply You | Beauty -

Hair oils are a favourite of beauty ex­perts and for good rea­son. They are full of es­sen­tial fatty acids that can help seal in mois­ture, detangle, tame and treat split ends. “The pop­u­lar­ity of oils comes from our de­sire to mimic the best hair oil ever, a nat­u­ral sub­stance we all pro­duce called se­bum,” says Ma­trix’s new cre­ative di­rec­tor Hay­ley Pul­lyn.

Oils like ar­gan, co­conut, grape­seed and moringa bring all hair types back to life. You can use hair prod­ucts that con­tain oils or you can use cold­pressed oils straight from the kitchen. “Post colour­ing and pre-hair­cut, it’s great to do a pre-sham­poo oil treat­ment to nour­ish and plump the hair,” says Pul­lyn. “Also, adding a few drops of an oil serum be­fore and after your blowdry will give more shine and nourishment and act as a smooth­ing agent.

“Gen­er­ally the drier and frizzier your hair, the more oil-based prod­ucts it can han­dle.” Even fine locks can han­dle oils. “Fine hair lacks the elas­tic­ity and sup­ple­ness that thicker and denser hair nat­u­rally has, so you need an oil to help nour­ish it.” TRY: 1.
