By Total Beauty. The bane of my hair's existence? Oil. And, lucky me, I have a lot of it.
Since oily roots do not look good with any hairstyle I spend an inordinate amount of time trying to minimize my oil with dry shampoos, alcohol wipes, and strategic bobby pinning.
That's why this new craze of adding oil to your hair on purpose has me a bit flummoxed.
Believe it or not, experts say that this new generation of hair oils can do the work of a leave-in conditioner, styling cream, frizz serum, and shine spray all in one without leaving your hair looking greasy or oil slick-y in the slightest.
These are the hair oils that the pros say will change both your hair -- and your thoughts about oil. See the 8 new hair oils now.More from TotalBeauty.com:
