Oils for Natural Hair: Essentials You Need to Soften Your Strands

A one-stop product for all your hair oil needs.

We’ve read and written about the different kinds of hair oils many times, but we know that when it comes to hair care (and beauty in general), one size does not fit all hair types. If you’re searching for the best oils for natural hair then you’ve come to the right place. Today, we’re highlighting two of our favorite oils for natural hair and some of our best tips on how to use them.

This 6-in-1 product is the answer to your hair prayers.

Finding the best oil for natural hair comes down to finding an oil strong enough to enter the inner structure to truly make a difference in both the health and feel of your hair. We suggest the Nexxus New York Salon Care Oil Infinite Hair Oil for both of these qualities and a few additional bonus effects, too.

The Nexxus New York Salon Care Oil Infinite Hair Oil is infused with six different oils, each serving its own purpose. A quick search for the best oil for natural hair will list these six oils along with a few others. This Nexxus oil combines Amazonian Babassu oil and African Marula oil (both known for their nourishing properties) with four others as a one-stop shop for all the essential oils for natural hair. Another great benefit of babassu oil for hair is that nourishes and hydrates dry scalp. Despite the formula containing multiple ingredients, it remains lightweight and won’t weigh down your hair. This oil will nourish and repair the surface layer of each strand of your natural hair to reduce frizz and add softness.

This product also works for every season as it adds moisture to dry wintry strands and tames frizz in hot and humid weather. It can be applied to damp hair for a smoother air-drying process or on already dry hair to add some shine and a glossy finish.

Another favorite is the TRESemmé Botanique Damage Recovery Elixir, a lightweight spray that combines the benefits of nourishing and smoothing an oil and the weightless shine of a spray. Infused with macadamia oil, wheat proteins, and avocado, this oil works to repair rough cuticles, making your hair smooth, healthy, and glossy. Bonus: it’s safe for color-treated hair!
