10 Best Hair Oils Of 2020 For Every Hair Type

hair oil

We all suffer through different hair issues (hair loss, dryness, poor shine, frizz, split ends, flyaways, heat damage, UV damage…etc). For each of these hair concerns, there is an effective solution based on synthetic or naturally derived ingredients to tackle the problem from roots to ends, and that’s the time when we start to think about adding a suitable hair oil to our haircare routine. Hair oil treatment doesn’t only work as a source of hydratation, it also provides the minerals and vitamins required to keeping it healthy.

Truth should be said, not every solution in the form of a beautifully packaged hair oil is the true answer for your hair issues. You should study the science of your hair, know more about your hair type (straight, wavy, curly, kinky), its porosity level (which means the hair’s ability to absorb and retain moisture), texture, type of curls (for curly hair), hair’s strand width (fine, medium, thick), and last but not least your “ hair’s history ” (if it was chemically treated, relaxed, colored, over-processed, and the list goes on) just to have a clear idea of what kind of hair oil treatment you’re looking for.

To find your hair’s matching pick, read on to learn about our top 10 hair oils of 2020, the following list includes the product’s features, key ingredients, hair concerns to treat, net weight, ethics, claims, fragrance, formula’s texture, price…etc.
