For girls with baby fine hair, tangling with oil can be a greasy mess, which will "take forever to get out—requiring deep, clarifying shampoos and several days of wearing your hair in a bun,” explains Allure.com. But, the recent boom of "companies packaging [oils] to look like liquid gold, their contents floating around in a gilded bottles decorated with elegant designs, and words like ‘mythic,’ and ‘magic’ in the title” can make the temptation to grease up harder to resist than a charming snake oil salesman. To this end, a fine-haired beauty editor began experimenting with ways that these oils could be employed in her delicate locks. She found oil works as a good prep product in small amounts for blow drying—but warns to avoid adding product to the roots. It also works in mini-portions as an overnight treatment to create "glossy waves without any frizz” after sleeping with hair in a bun, and to add shine for a sleek bun or ponytail. The main takeaway? Go light.
