The four oils combined together confront damaged, dry, and brittle hair, transforming it into smooth, shiny locks. We all know coconut oil is great for hair, but what about the other three? Well, camellia is a source of vitamin E, polyphenols, omega-9 fatty acids, and even plant collagen and proteins that skin and hair alike adore. Kukui oil helps repair damaged and overexposed hair due to its amino acids. Macadamia nut oil is loaded with essential fatty acids and vitamin compounds that help diminish frizzy hair. Give it a try by using it as an overnight treatment and washing it out in the morning, or leave some in your hair for at least an hour before washing it out.
