It's not only our skin that gets dry in the winter, our hair also suffers. While an oily head of hair isn't ideal, a little oil when hair gets too dry won't hurt a bit.

While earlier versions of hair oils tended to be greasy and weighed hair down, modern formulas have improved by leaps and bounds. With that said, what may work great on curly hair may not be ideal for finer strands. Here are the best oils for every hair type as chosen by the beauty editors of Allure, Cosmopolitan, and Glamour.

Fine Hair

Aveda Thickening Tonic

This hair oil doesn't only give shine, but also increase the volume of fine hair over time. The 97 percent naturally-derived formula doesn't leave grit or residue behind so fine hair doesn't get weighed down.

Bumble and bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil

This Allure Best of Beauty awardee absorbs very quickly; it detangles, moisturizes, and softens hair. It also offers sun protection, and you can use it before using any heated hair styling tools.

John Paul Mitchell MarulaOil Light Rare Oil Dry Mist

This oil comes in a fine spray form so it is perfect for fine hair. Formulated with marula oil, it is also ideal for heat styling and reviving bleached hair.

Dry and Frizzy Hair


Argan oil from Morocco is rich in vitamin E and fatty acids. It softens and adds shine to dry, unruly and coarse hair and helps it become more manageable. Argan oil is great for controlling frizz and flyaways, as well.

Davines Oi Oil

Davines Oi Oil is a cult favorite among hairdressers. It's a multipurpose hair oil that can do it all — detangle, fight frizz, and add shine. Allure editor Kathleen Suico uses it to revive her color-treated hair.

Thick and Curly Hair

Alikay Naturals 17-in-1 Hair Growth Oil

Glamour calls this oil a "saving grace" for natural hair. Since trips to the parlor are rare these days, give your neglected hair some TLC with this own that encourages healthy growth.

Ouidad Revive & Shine Rejuvenating Dry Oil Mist

Best for curly and frizzy hair, this lightweight oil mist makes curl care easy and manages to revive second-day hair into looking better than new.

SheaMoisture Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Hair Serum

If you're constantly heat styling or bleaching your hair, give black castor oil a try. With the added benefits of peppermint leaf extract, the potent combination moisturizes and conditions both the hair and scalp so hair can be restored to its natural glory. Of course, it doesn't hurt to take a break from bleaching and use of heated styling tools, too.
