How to get a glossy mane

Want to look hot to trot at your next event? Here’s how to get shiny locks that rival even the biggest of show ponies.

Nourishing hair oils are the unsung heroes of the beauty cabinet.

Not only do they help hydrate, tame and smooth the hair follicle, but with consistent use they can also make your hair healthier, glossier and thicker.

And best of all, modern lightweight oils leave the hair looking shiny, and feeling soft and smooth – without leaving a greasy feeling.

So if you want your mane to be the main attraction at your next event, now is the time to weave an oil into your hair routine.

How do hair oils work?

Hair oils can be used as a pre-wash treatment, leave-in conditioner, hot oil treatment or an overnight mask.

Depending on their formulation, they can help tame frizz, nourish the follicle and balance oils on the scalp.

Massaging oil into your scalp may help increase blood flow to the hair follicles and deliver beneficial nutrients to the roots.

Hydration for the hair

While there are a multitude of reasons to use hair oils, their biggest benefit is the ability to rehydrate dry, damaged hair.

Products containing rosehip oil work well on normal to damaged hair because of its regenerative properties and high levels of antioxidants.

Grape seed oil is another excellent deep conditioner for normal to dry hair, helping to lock in moisture and prevent frizz and split ends.

Light and odourless, it may also help in treating dandruff, flaky scalp and hair loss.

Hair oils can also promote thickness by providing nourishing agents like protein and fatty acids to the follicle.

How to use hair oils 

They are easy to use, especially if you find one that can be applied to wet or dry hair.

Massage a few drops gently into the hair and leave in for maximum benefit.
