Forget the tanning kind, the only oil you should be packing in your suitcase this summer is for your hair. Hair oils have been big news in the beauty world over the last couple of years, not only for their ability to nourish and repair damaged hair but also to protect it from environmental dangers like salt water and the sun. With that in mind, and just in time for holiday season the FashionBite beauty team have conducted some serious research to bring you the top three hair oils to nourish and protect your locks this summer.
We love Lee Stafford’s Argan Oil range – and not just for its pretty pink packaging. This ArganOil from MoRocco is great for restoring shine, repairing damage and generally making hair look gorgeous and healthy, but the best thing about it is that it works on wet or dry hair so can be used as a serum to tame, nourish and protect hair whenever, wherever. Plus, at £11.99 it’s great value for money!
‘The Original Oil’ that took the beauty world by storm a couple of years ago is undeniably one of the best products around for nourishing damaged hair. The Moroccan Oil Treatment works to replenish hair by replacing lost protein, vitamins and anti-oxidants to restore strength and shine while building protection. Available in salons around the UK, prices vary.
A new discovery for FashionBite, Dr Hauschka Neem Hair Oil (£22.95) uses herbal extracts from neem leaf and chamomile to restore natural sheen to damaged hair. First impressions: it looks like olive oil and smells like a mini herb garden so it must be good right? Right. Apply this hair medicine all over hair and leave on for 20-30 minutes or simply apply to ends before washing (like I did) to repair damage and leave hair soft, shiny and manageable. Use before exposure to sun, salt water and even saunas – for the more luxurious holiday-makers – for guaranteed protection. Just what the doctor ordered!
