Oils are amazing for your skin, but what about your hair?
Unlike our skin, hair has no way to hydrate itself. This is why our hair follicles produce sebum, a natural oil that travels down the surface of the hair, with the aim of keeping our locks lusciously hydrated from root to tip.
Unfortunately, this natural process is sometimes disrupted by technical services, environmental factors and even styling, meaning that the natural oils aren’t always enough to keep hair beautifully nourished.
Hair oils are the ultimate, multi-use product to introduce to your haircare routine to support your hairs natural beauty.
Kérastase Hair Expert Milly Whittle shares her top tips to finding the perfect hair oil for your hair type!
Different ways you can use your hair oil:
On Wet Hair:
Hair oils work wonderfully when applied to towel dried hair for easy detangling and to prime the hair ahead of blow drying and heat styling. Apply 1-2 pumps of your chosen Kérastase oil and work into the mid-lengths and ends of your hair, using a wide tooth comb to glide through any tangles and evenly distribute the product.
On Dry Hair:
Applying a lightweight hair oil onto dry hair is the perfect way to achieve polished, glossy locks in minutes! Using 1 pump of your chosen Kérastase oil, work through the mid lengths and ends of your hair to add shine and combat frizz.
For an intense hit of nourishment, apply your hair oil as an at home, pre-cleanse treatment. Adding this step to your haircare routine can do wonders to lock in moisture, leaving hair feeling soft, strong with boosted shine. For a seamless application, remove any tangles from dry hair and divide into sections. Apply the oil from root to tip, working through each section of hair. Once the oil is evenly distributed, allow the oil to work its magic for at least 30 minutes before shampooing the hair.
