Back in 2014, I was having a conversation with a hairstylist about how I despised hair oils. They weighed down my fine hair, and in many cases, I’d end up having to rewash it. The worst! She said to me: “Hair oils are fantastic. You’ve just never used the right one.” She used the UNITE U Oil on my hair that day (despite my hesitation because I thought I’d end up a greasy mess), and she was right. There are bad hair oils and good hair oils, and this one is really good.

The Benefits

A cult-classic beloved by hair professionals and consumers alike, this oil is a true multitasker. A couple of drops add shine, seal a frizzy cuticle, protect the hair against heat and UV damage, and hydrate dry hair. And that’s not all: It also helps reduce the time it takes to blow-dry your hair. And for me, although my hair is fine, I have a lot of it and it takes forever to dry. I also love using one drop on just my ends when they start to look a little haggard between haircuts. I rub the oil between my fingers and then pinch and twist my ends when my hair is dry. It instantly refreshes my look.

The formula is vegan and safe to use on hair extensions and chemically treated hair. In the nearly 10 years I’ve known this product, I’ve seen it used on several hair types, including super fine and super thick. I’ve also heard that it’s great for softening coarse gray hair. I love the scent, too, which makes my hair smell like I just left the salon. I’m not surprised many reviewers call this oil “magic in a bottle.”

Key Ingredient

A high concentration of argan oil deeply nourishes the hair, making it feel silky-smooth and look shiny.

How to Use It

Apply one to three drops (depending on the texture and length of your hair) to damp or dry hair. Like any hair oil, a little goes a long way. I like to rub the oil between my palms first so that it’s evenly distributed. Once you get the hang of how much works for you—one, two or three drops—you’ll reap all the benefits.
