How Oprah's Stylist Saved My Hair

How Oprah's Stylist Saved My Hair

Share

My hair is many things: long, fine, brown. But, it has never, ever been frizzy. However, since moving to the Pacific Northwest, I've experienced one bad hair day after another. Thanks to the hard water in my building and the perpetual humidity, it takes about two seconds for my hair to fall flat and frizz out. How is that combination even possible?

I've tried all of my secret weapons: volumizers, velcro rollers, dry shampoo, heat protectants, anti-frizz serum, and still, nothing. On a whim, I gave Oprah's personal stylist, Andre Walker's, Q-Oil Quench Essential Hair Oil ($35) a whirl.

Although it seemed counterintuitive to add more moisture to limp hair, it turned out to be exactly what my tresses needed. My mane is manageable again, and my blowout is smooth and bouncy. Unlike some argan oil hair serums, Q-oil is incredibly lightweight — not greasy. I smooth a few generous drops from mid-shaft to tip before round brushing my hair. The best part is, I can't seem to screw it up.

Add that to the list of reasons to love Oprah.
