13 Nourishing Oil Treatments That Give Life to Natural Hair

Oils have been coveted by beauty junkies for complexion cleansing, body hydration, and DIYs (to name a few!), but naturalistas especially know how they can work wonders on damaged hair.

Beauties with natural hair can rely on them to add shine, soothe the scalp, tame flyaways, or even use as an intensive treatment.

To save you time, we rounded up our favorite oils for natural tresses. Read on to find out why they are worthy of "holy grail" status.
