        Hair Oil


          • What it is?
            • Because of oil’s innate ability to soften and condition (the scalp is constantly producing oil that travels from root to tip to protect the hair), oil, when used on the hair, also provides a hydrating effect. ... This oil protects the hair and makes it smoother, softer and less frizzy
