what are the benefits of hair oils?
We hear hair stylists and celebrities rave about hair oil products, like our Essence Absolue Hair Oil Collection, but what are the benefits? Hair oils are beneficial to all hair types, providing moisture, shine, and control. The universality of hair oils allow them to work with all hair types from colored hair and oily hair, to damaged hair, dry hair, among other hair concerns. They also provide heat protection for various styling needs.
Different types of hair oils use different ingredients to provide the desired level of moisture and shine. Camellia oil is a rapidly trending ingredient that originates from Toshima, Japan, where seeds are handpicked from the camellia flower and transformed into a nourishing oil. Camellia oil has been used for centuries for its nourishing properties to enhance moisture and shine.
Our Essence Absolue Nourishing Protective Hair Oil is a bestselling, multi-use product formulated with camellia oil and can be used on wet or dry hair in the following ways:
• USE AS A STYLING AID: apply 1 pump to your hands (a little goes a long way) and work through hair from mid-lengths to ends
• USE AS PRE-SHAMPOO: use 3-4 pumps and comb into dry hair before shampooing
• USE AS A CONDITIONING TREATMENT: apply 1 pump each to 4 sections of hair from mid-lengths through ends, and massage into scalp

hair oil for curly hair
Hair oils are perfect for curly hair girls, given that curls tend to dry and frizz easily. Applying a small amount of Essence Absolue Nourishing Protective hair oil to each curl helps define and fix frizzy curls, leaving them shiny and smooth.
hair oil for fine hair
Although women with fine hair are wary of oils weighing their hair down, fine hair still needs healthy nourishment. Apply a lightweight hair oil such as Essence Absolue Nourishing Protective hair oil to fine hair sparingly, making sure to stay away from the scalp and roots. Brush the oil through to distribute evenly and without buildup.
hair oils for oily hair
A common myth is that hair oil is not intended for greasy or oily hair. High quality hair oils balance the scalp’s natural oils and effectively draw out impurities – as the saying goes, “oil removes oil.” Our precious ingredient, Onsen inspired ferment is known for its purification properties.
hair oil for dry hair
Hair oils can also act as a great way to maintain moisture balance on the scalp for dry hair types. Our Essence Absolue Nourishing Protective hair oil calms and regenerates hair while soothing, leaving supple and soft hair.
hair oil for heat styled hair
Styling your hair with heat tools like blow dryers and flatirons can lead to damaged, dry hair. Use a protective hair oil such as Essence Absolue All-in-Oil hair milk before heat styling and use Essence Absolue Nourishing Protective hair oil as a finishing product to add shine and moisture to your finished look.
hair oil for second-day hair
Revive unwashed or dirty hair instantly with a pump of hair oil. Reshape and redefine your look more easily with increased moisture and flexibility. Additionally, dry shampoo and other cleansing products tend to dry out your hair, so hair oil is the perfect shot of nourishment your mid-lengths and ends are looking for. Need a quick touch-up? Try our Essence Absolue Universal Balm, formulated with our precious ingredient Camellia Oil. This lightweight balm adds nourishment, softness, detangling, shine and treats dry lengths to revive hair on the go.
