#PamperPicks: Our Top 5 Favourite Hair Oils for Healthy and Shiny Hair

Achieving smooth and shiny hair is not as hard as you may think if you use the right hair care products. Besides the basic hair care like shampoo and conditioner, you can add hair oil in your hair care routine to nourish your strands and make them look healthier and shinier. Hair oil can be applied on wet hair or dry hair – applying on wet hair after shampooing and before blowdrying will help in detangling and heat protection; or you can also apply on dry hair to tame the frizz and add more shine.

A good hair oil not only comes with high-quality ingredients that will promotes healthy hair growth, but also a fine texture which is lightweight and non-greasy so that it won’t leave your hair feel sticky and weighed down.

Over the past few months, we have been trying out different hair oils from both affordable and luxury brands, to see which one met our expectations and more to our liking. Out of all the hair oils that we tried, we’ve picked our top 5 favourites to share with you!

Infused with a blend of Passion Fruit oil, Shea oil, Cotton seeds oil and Moringa oil, the Precious Hair Care Oil smooths and nourishes the hair for a glossy finish and healthy feel, enhancing the shine and radiance of your hair.

Drop a small amount of this nice scented hair oil on your palm, gently apply to the mid-lengths and ends of your hair by rubbing it between finger tips, the lightweight hair oil will penetrate your hair to deeply nourish, instantly smooth frizz and revitalise shine without weighing hair down.

Pricing wise, it is quite an investment – RM390 for 100ml, but based on the results we have seen, we would say it is well worth the extra dollars. You can get it at Sisley Paris counters nationwide or selected A Cut Above Salons in Klang Valley.

The Saffron Hair Elixir Pistachio + Rose Hair Oil is 100% vegan and packed with a blend of four hydrating Persian oils, including Saffron, Rose, Pistachio, and Argan oil. It works wonder to nourish the dull hair and take care of the frizz and flyaways.

What we like the most about this hair oil is its super lightweight formula and the non-greasy feel after application. Totally no weigh down at all! After applying, it leaves our hair feeling nourished and soft while leaving behind a mild, pleasant floral scent.

The Saffron Hair Elixir Pistachio + Rose Hair Oilcomes in two sizes at reasonable prices -RM119 for 33ml and RM215 for 92ml. The 33ml option is worth considering if you’re new to the Joon hair oils and want to test it out.

Just 2 pumps for each application after shampooing will leave your hair smooth, shiny and frizz-free!

The hair oil is available in two sizes – 60ml (RM86) and 15ml (RM41), we recommend you to get the bigger bottle as you only need to topup a bit and the portion is much more.

Infused with a powerful blend of Rosehip, Argan and coconut oils, Briogeo’s Farewell Frizz hair oil helps seal split ends and revive dry and damaged hair for a shiny, smooth and healthy-looking finish.

Gluten and cruelty-free, this hair oil comprises of 99% naturally derived vegan ingredients, and the antioxidant-rich rosehip oil acts as a protective barrier, shielding hair from heat, harmful UV exposure, and free radicals.

The Botanical Hair Oil is a product of Botanist, a Japanese haircare brand well known for natural beauty products. All their products are free from artificial ingredients and silicone-free, and more than 90% of the product is derived from natural plant ingredients.

The Botanical Hair Oil uses five different botanical seed oils that supply moisture and smoothness on the hair surface and protect your hair from external damage, while leaving a pleasant aroma. Not only will it add amazing shine, it will also protect your hair from heat damage when using dryers, flat irons or curling irons.
