In a time where dry shampoo is our saving grace for quick hair fixes, we often forget one product that can give you extra shine and moisture. We’re talking about hair oils.
Into the Gloss explains that the trick to smooth and glossy hair is to apply the oil while it’s still damp. This will “make clean hair feel even cleaner” and you can also use this as a detangler. Even when you apply it on dry hair, you’ll feel the same effects.
Of course, not all oils work on different kinds of hair. It’s a matter of testing them out and finding which suits your needs and preferences.

Known for being a natural conditioner, argan oil will make your hair sleek and shiny. Even Binibining Pilipinas-International Mariel De Leon swears by this and told us that she uses it every night. Available at Rustan’s The Beauty Source.
L’Oréal Paris Elseve Extraordinary Oil
Made with six flower extracts, the Elseve Extraordinary Oil nourishes hair and leaves a non-greasy sheen. Just massage it on wet hair and leave it on for one to two minutes before rinsing. It also has a mild floral scent that’ll last a long time. Available at SM Makati.
