A One-and-Done Oil for Smooth Hair

Let’s Just Get to the Point:
A moisturizing hair oil that smooths frizz on wet hair and tamps down flyaways, Sexy Hair Love Oil Moisturizing Oil ($23) is a must for those who air-dry their hair.
If You Want to Know More:
Ever since a supermodel commented on (aka insulted) my frizzy hair, I’ve looked for a product that will smooth my (apparently notorious) flyaways. Unless it’s picture day or I have a really, really exciting date, my goal is to wash and go with no hot tools necessary and a minimal product regimen. Thanks to Sexy Hair, I’m now BFFs with Love Oil Moisturizing Oil, a one-and-done product that’s perfect for air-dryers like me or blowout devotees.
The first thing you’ll notice about Love Oil is the scent. It’s formulated with mimosa flower extract and moonstones, which give the oil a sweet citrusy fragrance with a hint of sugary bubblegum. It’s strong (and delicious-smelling) enough that I received multiple post-hug compliments. As always, Sexy Hair delivers a product that makes people want to get closer.
I parted my damp hair in two and used two pumps of oil on each side from my ends to about two inches up. My hair dried smooth, preserving my beachy waves without the telltale flyaways of air-drying that, apparently, supermodels hate so much. On days when I didn’t work the oil in immediately after a shower, I used it on dry hair to tame stray flyaways. It ditched the frizz without—and this is a huge bonus—leaving my hair greasy. Don’t let the oil’s rich texture fool you; it’s silky but not greasy, and smooth but never sticky or tacky. If you are using a hot tool, the oil even helps protect against heat damage. After just one morning of adding it to my “towel-dry and go” routine, my hair was frizz-free. After a week, my hair looked shinier, too.
The oil is so rich, you’ll only need a pump or two daily, which means the bottle will last all the way from dry hair season to frizzy hair season. Even better, it’s TSA-friendly and small enough to fit in your travel bag.
My hair regimen may be built on laziness, but Love Oil fit right in. The only thing better than a blowout? When you only need one product to fake salon-quality shine.
