Hair oils we know you’ll love

Monday, 7 July 2014

If you have very coarse or ethnic hair, you’ll understand the frustrations of having to deal with dryness, breakage and zero manageability. Enter: hair oils. Now before you think grease and grime, you have to understand that oil has the capability to completely transform your hair. A good quality hair oil designed specifically for coarse and ethnic hair can:

promote hair growth (especially those that must be massaged into the scalp);
– help strengthen hair and prevent breakage;
– provide deep nourishment, moisture and hydration;
– give hair a glossy shine (without looking greasy);
– make it more manageable and easier to style

    I have used the motions product and it is amazing. It made my hair soft, shining and manageable. After using it for a while my hair looked healthy and the product smells amazing. I would recommend this.

    I cannot wait to try the new ethnic hair brand Smooth‘n Shine. My local mall is not yet selling them. Their Oil Moisturiser is quite reasonable at R24.95

    Absolutely love the Curl Care Range from Dr Miracle’s. My mother used to use the Original Amla Oil when I was growing up and it defintely boosts hair growth, although your hair gets very oily. Should give the Dark & Lovely Amla a try
