what are the benefits of using 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.

Hair oil shampoos add shine by replenishing the lipid layer on the surface of the hair, making it look shiny and sleek. Additionally, hair oil conditioners give life to dry hair in need of nourishment. Hair oil also works wonders as a styling product, when you want to achieve a half up top knot or tame flyaways.

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.
