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.

Camellia Oil

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.

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.
