The 10 Best Hair Essential Oils of 2022

Hair oil is generally a mix of "oil-based ingredients" extracted form plants, rather than real essential oils. Many leave-in creamy products or lotions are sometimes difficult to control precisely because you have to take into account many aspects, like application method, applying time, and the amount. That’s why good results can not be achieved. Hair oils have better performance than leave-in conditioners, as they cover the hair follicles more directly, locking in moisture, reducing dryness and restoring healthy shininess. According to Birnur Aral, Director of a Beauty Salon, the hair oil is like a protective film to keep hair separated and making it smooth and easy to take care. Dry hair, frizzy hair or damaged hair are the best candidates for using hair oils. For healthy hair, it is not necessary to use hair oils. For delicate hair, it is not recommended to use hair oils, otherwise your hair will be more prone to flattening and lack of vitality.

We rounded up a host of brands with a cult following, like Kerastase, Schwarzkopf, L’Oreal and so on. Each brand boasts a wide range of super-quality products, and most of them are the winners of multiple beauty awards. So to find your pick, check out the list of hair oils we’ve compiled for you.
