My Italian heritage makes me oily AF (hair and skin) and I used to be scared to use oil products because I thought it would exacerbate the problem. But actually if you use the right kind, oil is great for all types of hair and skin! Here are some of my favorites:

Moroccanoil Treatment


Sephora, $44

The one that started it all. This makes your hair so soft and shiny without weighing it down! I use the classic formula because I have super thick and naturally wavy hair. But if you have thinner hair or are weary of oil they have a light version too. I've featured the big bottle for $44, but they have mini versions that are only $15 if you don't want to make that kind of commitment!

Maple Holistics Argan Oil Shampoo

Maple Holistics, $10

I've learned that oil in my hair for conditioning purposes works great, but I was pretty apprehensive about a shampoo that has oil in the name because my roots always get super greasy in less time than it takes me to eat a whole box of macaroni & cheese (aka very fast). So when Maple Holistics contacted me about sending me their Argan Oil Shampoo to try I was skeptical, but y'all it is actually great! It conditions my hair without making it oily like I expected it to (moral of the story: don't judge a product by its name). Lucky for you they have free samples you can try! While you're on their site, be sure to check our their blog post on derma rolling.

Tarte Maracuja Oil

Sephora, $48

What's even crazier than putting oil on your hair? Oil on your face! But really, it's not that crazy—it's actually great for your skin! I have used Tarte's Maracuja Oil for years and it makes my skin so soft. A little drop goes a long way, so don't put too much on your first time! And if you're still skeptical, try using it at night before you go to bed.
