Kérastase Elixir Ultime, $54
Kérastase kicked off the hair oil craze earlier this year with their Elixir Ultime, a multitasking serum that can be used as a treatment before you shampoo, a leave-in conditioner before you style, or as a shine enhancer on dry hair. It's a blend of four different oils -- maize, Pracaxi, camellia, and argan -- which have antioxidant properties, as well as smoothing and hydrating benefits. Women -- us included -- swooned.

Even though the original is plenty amazing, Kérastase just launched three new versions, each for specific needs. First, there's Elixir Ultime Rose Millénaire -- an oil so light it feels like water -- for fine hair. Then, there's Elixir Ultime Moringa Immortel, which has bonus calcium, iron, and magnesium for damaged hair. And finally, there's Elixir Ultime The Imperial, which has Imperial Tea for extra UV protection for color-treated hair. We sense even more swooning happening soon.

8 New Hair Oils -- and Why You Need One

November 14, 2012

By Total Beauty. The bane of my hair's existence? Oil. And, lucky me, I have a lot of it.

Since oily roots do not look good with any hairstyle I spend an inordinate amount of time trying to minimize my oil with dry shampoos, alcohol wipes, and strategic bobby pinning.

That's why this new craze of adding oil to your hair on purpose has me a bit flummoxed.

Believe it or not, experts say that this new generation of hair oils can do the work of a leave-in conditioner, styling cream, frizz serum, and shine spray all in one without leaving your hair looking greasy or oil slick-y in the slightest.

These are the hair oils that the pros say will change both your hair -- and your thoughts about oil. See the 8 new hair oils now.
