It seems like every time you turn around, there is a new miracle hair oil on the market!
First, there was an argan oil craze…then macadamian oil….and the age old coconut craze.
But the fact reminds is that oil is probably the best means to moisturizing hair. It’s quick and can be used in rinse outs or as a leave-in conditioner for all types of hair.
But just as there are many different types of hairs, there are different types of hair textures. No woman’s head of hair is the same so how an oil reacts to your hair and my hair could be as complex as the difference between apples and potatoes.
The same thing applies with celebrities. What Lupita’s hair likes could be different than what Rihanna’s locs sing a tune to.
