Transform Dry, Frizzy Hair With A Nourishing Leave-In Hair Oil
If you’ve been struggling with lifeless, damaged hair, it’s time to call in the help of a leave-in hair oil.
Always start with a pea-sized amount (less is more), and begin at the ends of damp or dry hair while working your way up the hair shaft. When used properly, these oils won’t weigh hair down. A drop or two worked into the ends and through the strands will also help revive any day (or two or three…) old style.
And, don’t forget to rub any remaining oil into your hands, cuticles and elbows for an added dose of body moisture.
