If you’ve noticed that your hair is starting to look a little frizzy or dry from one too many hits with the blow-dryer, consider adding a hair oil to your routine. After applying the product and styling her hair, Strategist writer Ambar Pardilla says “the effect was something akin to what I would get in a salon chair: smooth, bouncy, and impossibly shiny,” and her hair had the “glossiness reminiscent of what you’d see in a shampoo commercial.” It even impressed her toughest critic: “My mother, who notices when a single strand is out of place, complimented me on how my hair looked the morning after I first used the oil.” The product is chock-full of small-molecule, antioxidant-rich seed oils like passion fruit and pracaxi seed, which helps to give hair shine without weighing it down. True Botanicals Shine & Protect Hair Cream Oil also counts a fan in Strategist senior editor Simone Kitchens, who says the oil moisturized her superfine, in-need-of-a-trim curls. And right now, it’s on sale for 20 percent off as part of True Botanicals’ sitewide sale. “What you’re left with is your hair feeling like its best self,” concludes Pardilla.
