We Tried This Game-Changing Smoothing Hair Oil And It’s Only $30

Frizz, flyaways and unruliness are no match for this hair saver.

Hair oil is a quick route to a more gloss and shine. And while hair oils are amazing at taming curly, thick and hard-to-manage hair, surprisingly they are also great on fine hair like mine.

My hair can be prone to flyaways so I am always looking for solutions – both in my bathroom in the morning and on the go. When OGX’s much-loved Argan Oil of Morocco Penetrating Oil came across my desk, I was keen to see if this cult supermarket buy could tame flyaways and give my hair deep hydration and shine without weighing it down.

The answer? Yes! Just a few drops of this fresh citrus and floral scented oil adds instant moisture to my highlighted hair and gives it instant shine (which can be tough with blonde hair). It’s great for protecting my hair when heat styling and helps make it feel both softer and more manageable. I can also apply a drop or two during the day to refresh a blow-dry so I have a bottle in my top drawer at the office.

I really like that this product is both sulphate and paraben free – which puts it in a league similar to salon brands. These nasties can build up on hair and make it dull and hard to manage so I try to avoid them. In these expensive times, I also really like that this is a cost-effective way to balance and hydrate my hair and give it a shine boost.

My best tip on hair oils? Add a couple of drops to your palms them rub it like hand cream all over your hands – front and back. Then you’ll just have the finest layer going onto your hair. You can always build it up but honestly try it, it’s a gamechanger, especially for fine hair which can get overloaded with too much oil.
