Summer haircare: how to boost your hair's health with oils

Our favorite beauty secret, hair oil continues to boost our hair's shine and health. Here's how to use it for a gorgeous head of hair all summer long!

Choose an oil adapted to your hair type

You choose your shampoo, conditioner, masks and treatments based on your hair type, so it only makes sense that this rule applies to selecting hair oil as well. L'Oréal Professionel has recently expanded their Mythic Oil range with products formulated for specific hair types: for fine to normal hair, opt for the formula that includes osmanthus oil and ginger; for thick hair, rely on the range's argan oil and myrrh formula.

You might also consider making the Huile Initiale Pre-Shampoo (formulated to moisturize and detangle the hair before washes) a part of your routine. This specialty haircare is available exclusively in the salon, so check with the hair professionals on site to find out how to maximize its benefits.

How to use hair oil in summer

To nourish and hydrate your hair during summer, softly fragrant and luxurious hair oils are a perfect choice. Dispense a hazelnut-sized amount into the palm of your hand and then run it through your ends each morning - think of it as a daily moisturizer for your hair!

When you hit the beach, combat the drying effects that sun, salt and sand can have on your hair by giving it a double dose of hydration and protection. Start by coating your locks from root to tip with hair oil and then add sun protection via the Sublime Sun Spray by L'Oréal Professionel.

To enhance your hair's shine for a special occasion, opt for oil with a subtle golden shimmer! You can even apply the oil to your shoulders, collarbones, arms and legs to ensure an all over glow.

Use products with an oil base

To benefit even more from all that hair oils have to offer, don't hesitate to try haircare products with an oil base. L'Oréal Professionel has developed multiple new formulas with a non-oil texture:

- Brume Sublimatrice, a dry conditioner that allows you to untangle, hydrate and add shine to your hair between washes.

- Crème Universelle, a no-rinse cream that works to discipline and protect your hair before washing or styling.
