The Must Have Hair Product: Hair Oil

If you could only have one hair product for the rest of your life, what would it be? I know what mine would be. Hair oil.

I don't always use the same hair oil, but I do use a hair oil everyday. I can't remember the last time I missed using hair oil, but on the off chance that I run out or forget to restock my locker at the gym, I feel like I've lost my best friend. Seriously. It's depressing styling hair without hair oil.

I truly think everyone should be addicted to hair oil. While they all are a little different, the basic effects from hair oil are the same. Improved manageability, softer hair, less frizz, reduced static, improved moisture, increased shine, (are you sold yet?) UV protection, longer lasting color, damage control, decreased drying time, faster styling, healthier hair, sealed cuticle, less tangles... the list seriously goes on and on.

I use it on my hair before I even touch a comb to it. It's my detangler, leave in conditioner, and the foundation that I build my hairstyle on. I mix it with other styling products to make them preform better. I use it to tame fly-a-ways and make my hair color shine.

Do you use a hair oil? Which one? Did it make my list of favorite hair oils?
