When Is An Oil Not An Oil?

Traditionally, hair oil has a couple of key benefits – it protects hair, adds moisture, and generally leaves your strands looking a bit lovelier than before. But, for some of us, the thought of adding oil to our freshly-washed hair can feel a little counterintuitive. Good news! We’ve discovered a lightweight formula that works for all hair types, won’t leave your clean strands feeling greasy, and has been handpicked straight from the Vogue 100 Beauty Hall of Fame. Introducing… Percy & Reed’s Smoothed, Sealed & Sensational Volumising No Oil, Oil. (It’s easier to use than to say!)

1. WASH AND APPLY

After shampooing and conditioning your hair, towel-dry then dispense 2 to 3 pumps of oil into your palms. Warm between your hands then smooth through your hair from roots to tips. (Yes, even your roots!) This product is water-based so there’s no risk of greasy roots here.

2. BLOW-DRY

Tip your head upside down and position your hairdryer at the roots of your hair to add volume. If you’re curly-haired then try using a diffuser attachment to help keep your curls in shape.

3. ADD TEXTURE
