Tips to keep your tresses look­ing per­fect.

Most women are mov­ing away from the mis­con­cep­tion that oils weigh their hair down, mak­ing it too limp for styling, so the new man­u­fac­tur­ers in hair care to­day are com­pet­ing with one another to pro­duce the lat­est mir­a­cle cure for all hair types. Oils gen­er­ally add shine to dull hair, re­move frizz and can also be used as a great styling agent. Some of the more popular con­tenders are Moroc­can oil, al­mond oil and the Caribbean’s all time fa­vorite co­conut oil.

Oils have ul­tra hy­drat­ing ben­e­fits to most hair types, as the pop­u­lar­ity of Moroc­can ar­gan oil has proven. The na­ture of the mod­ern hair­dress­ing in­dus­try is so com­plex and di­verse that clients can take their hair from blah to beau­ti­ful, res­cued from the ef­fects of bleached high­lights, braid­ing, weav­ing and other ex­treme chem­i­cal treat­ments. When hair has reached such epic proportions of abuse, and by this I mean to­tally fried, there is no need to add oils to the root; it will wind up look­ing greasy. Sham­poos for­mu­la­tions which in­clude oils are best to use in this in­stance.

How­ever, when ap­ply­ing oil as sheen to aid styling, it is im­por­tant to move away from heav­ier oil, such as jo­joba which is great for hot oil treat­ments. Light­weight oils like sweet al­mond will add a healthy sheen with­out weigh­ing fine hair down.
