Oil blends and serums are incredibly versatile--you can use them as a sealer on wet hair or to enhance dry hair. You can use them as a pre-poo treatment prior to cleansing, before blow-drying to protect your hair from the blow dryer's heat, as a finishing product to help control and smooth your style or as a touch up on second, third, fourth day hair and beyond to add back shine and help control frizz and flyaways.
A lot of these products also treat and nourish the hair thanks to the benefits of the oils and ingredients inside. Here are some great oil blends for wavy hair.
One of my favorite oil blends. This is a blend of rosehip, argan and coconut oils. It penetrates the hair shaft to deliver intensive hydration and nutrients while enhancing shine and vibrancy and smells delicious- very sweet and fresh. It is silicone and paraben free and concentrated- a little goes a very long way.
There are several customized versions of this oil, the one I am referring to here is "Rich Oil" which is designed to give "complete control over rebellious hair" My hair is the most unruly in the world and as soon as my hairdresser used some of this on my last blow out I was so impressed I bought it right then and there (I usually wait, go home and search online to buy it cheaper) I was literally speechless seeing the puff and frizz on my ends magically decrease. This is made with Rice Bran and Argan oils to provides intense nourishment to make hair more manageable, create a smooth results for an easier blow-dry and quickly absorbs into the hair for intense yet lightweight control, allowing your hair body, if desired.
Ojon™ gathered several potent natural oils legendary for their "great healing powers" and infused them into 3 hair-reparative phases: Amber, Crystal and Red. It is important to mix the 3 together before applying. This oil protects and nourishes to repair and transform dull, dry or damaged hair to vibrant health. Hair instantly looks glossier, shinier; suddenly feels softer, silkier, more luxurious. Plus, it smells like coffee! We like that this oil is available in 3 different formulas: light, medium & thick textures. If you have fine hair or a very loose wave, then you'll probably want to stick to the light.

Light-weight and quick-absorbing, this oil featuring a luxurious blend of six oils and two extracts that have a multitude of benefits including to soften, tame flyaways, and add shine immediately and over time. It also helps hair look and feel healthy, smooth, silky, and conditioned while controlling frizz and strengthening hair against breakage. It contains UVA/UVB filters that offer heat styling protection and is a clear formula- so it will not tint or alter any hair colors (yay for us blondes).
This is one of my favorite products for blow drying wavy hair straight. It provides a smoother surface and tighter diameter which significantly reduce drying time and speed up styling time. The Super Skinny Complex penetrates deep into the hair shaft where it displaces water and constricts the hair. Lightweight silicones smooth, condition and seal hair with added shine.
Lightweight and non-greasy, humidity-resistant actives coat the hair eliminating frizz and unruly flyaways instantly. Flash dry fruit oils of olive, avocado and grape give hair a noticeable luster. This spray is nice to add shine and help frizz on second and third day hair.
This glossy curl enhancer rejuvenates hair’s natural moisture so any style is easy to perfect. It helps make dry unruly hair more moisturized and manageable. Packed with Marula- a rich oil harvested for 12,000 years in Madagascar that instantly restores and softens your curls. It leaves the hair flowy and lightweight and has an intoxicating smell of powdery roses.
This contains nourishing olive, avocado and almond oils, which help to transform dryness for healthy-looking hair and soft skin. The multi-use oil rapidly absorbs to treat hair and skin without oiliness. It is extremely lightweight and perfect if your hair gets weighed down easily by all other oils.
This is a maintenance product for anyone plagued with dry scalp. It is suggested that you use it as a "leave in" scalp nourisher. It is a hybrid safflower oil base, so you only need a small amount. The ylang ylang and cedar extracts reduce fungus and bacteria. The safflower oil sooths the scalp and restores it back to health. This product is 100% natural.
This is a luxurious daily leave-in treatment that revitalizes hair from root to tip. This multi-tasking dry oil is so potent that it tames flyaways and infuses lasting, luminous shine. It’s weightless and non-greasy, so the formula is instantly absorbed.
This is another one of my personal favorite oils to use. Super potent, it provides ultimate shine, softness and nourishment, strength and smoothness for all hair types. It contains Kerastase's "Oleo Complex" of Maize, Pracaxi, Camellia and Argan Oils which also helps to promote cellular renewal with its anti-oxidant active ingredients. This makes a tremendous difference in the amount of frizz I have.
