Beauty Advice

Which hair oil should I choose?

From pollution to sun, overly harsh shampoos and heated styling tools (hairdryer, straighteners, tongs, curlers): hair comes under a lot of stress all year round. Day after day, it loses its strength and becomes dull. What if we were to tell you that there is a remedy to restore nourished and beautiful hair? Discover the benefits of hair oil, a real rejuvenating boost for tired hair. 

Hair oil: the universal care 

Nourishing hair oils help to care for your hair each day. Consisting of a blend of botanical oils, they protect hair and infuse it with their benefits. Hair is repaired, locks stay shiny and soft despite shampooing, blow-drying and straightening.  

Based on a combination of precious botanical oils including argan, macadamia, camellia and borage, Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse® is a real nourishing, repairing and beautifying concentrate. Sprayed over hair after styling or applied as a nourishing mask, it creates a nurturing veil and enhances shine. Its fragrance combining orange blossom, magnolia and vanilla infuses your hair with irresistible notes. 

When the sun shines, choose a product with sunscreens to moisturize your hair and protect it from UV. A real protective shield, the Nuxe Sun Moisturizing Protective Milky Oil for Hair will be an essential beauty ally. While the sun’s caress feels blissfully comforting, it is also the biggest enemy of our skin and hair. To provide protection from the harmful effects of the sun, the Nuxe Sun Moisturizing Protective Milky Oil for Hair combines two sunscreens to protect hair from UVA and UVB. This dual-phase mist with coconut and jojoba oils repairs and moisturizes hair, leaving a shiny and non-greasy finish. Hair colour is protected from the sun’s rays, chlorine and salt. Sweet orange, tiare flower and vanilla create an irresistible olfactory trio that will infuse your hair with a delectable holiday scent. 

How should you use a hair oil? 

The drier your hair is, the more frequently you can apply your hair oil. It can also be used on oily hair, simply apply to the mid-lengths to enjoy the benefits while avoiding any greasy effect on the scalp. Hair oil is a versatile care product designed to meet all your needs: 

  • Care for dry ends 

Simply spray your hair oil over the ends of your hair and smooth gently with your fingers. Repeat as required. You can also apply it after blow-drying to protect your hair from moisture and avoid frizz or use it to reshape curls. Spray the oil into the palm of your hand, warm the texture in your hands and then run them lightly over your hair with open fingers, almost as if you were combing the lengths.  

  • Protect your hair from the sun

Apply a protective sun oil all over dry hair. In the same way as with your sun cream, apply before swimming and reapply regularly to maintain the protective effects of your product. After a day by the sea or pool, always apply your nourishing oil. Then cleanse your hair with a gentle shampoo to remove any residue of salt, chlorine and sand. Leave your hair to dry afterwards for a natural look. 

  • As an express nourishing mask

Throughout the year, your hair shows signs of weakness. A mask is an ideal conditioning treatment to strengthen your hair. You might be wondering how to use a mask? It couldn’t be simpler, once or twice a week:  

  • Apply your hair oil to the lengths of your dry hair before washing, paying particular attention to the ends. If you have very dry hair, you can apply all the way up to your scalp. 
  • Spread the product liberally over each strand until your hair is completely saturated. But make sure the oil doesn’t drip. 
  • Pleat your hair or tie it up in a bun and then wrap it in a scarf, a plastic cap or even cling film. 
  • Leave the oil on for 10 minutes before shampooing to allow your hair to absorb all the nutrients. This will give it time to soak up the nourishing benefits of your product and you can get on with something else while you wait.  
  • When it’s time to rinse off your conditioning treatment, start by soaking your hair before washing with a gentle shampoo. Spend a little time massaging your scalp before rinsing. Shampoo once more if necessary. Conditioner is optional. Finally, style as usual. 
  • If you’re used to using a hairdryer or straighteners, wait until you have finished using your appliances before applying the oil. The combination of this product and the extreme heat could damage your hair.  

The nourishing and delectably scented hair oil will take your hair beauty routine to a new level. This protective and repairing product can be used daily for shiny and protected hair, and it is also a perfect SOS rescue treatment to revitalise tired tresses.
