You Need This Overnight Hair Treatment In Your Life
If you’re anything like me, then the second you hear the name Vernon Francois you’re all ears. He’s the hairstylist responsible for some of our favorite looks on Lupita Nyong’o and Serena Williams, and recently launched his own haircare line that’s garnered hella buzz.
His Instagram serves as my daily source of hair inspo so I’d be lying if I said I didn’t rush to the nearest Sephora to buy his products. Full disclosure, I’m a sometimes fro-wearing, sometimes weave-wearing, sometimes silk-out wearing girl so my hair goes through it all. Did I mention it’s colored too? With that being said, I immediately gravitated towards the overnight treatment oils—four mini spray tubes that are just as stylish as they are effective. When it comes to our hair, finding that perfect mix of product is important, and more often than not, we find ourselves with hair that’s either too greasy or too dry. This miracle in a bottle changed all of that.
I must admit, when I first sprayed what is now my favorite hair product onto my hand I was taken aback by it’s consistency. It’s a tremendously lightweight texture that initially left me wondering if my hair would be provided with the moisture it needed. I was pleasantly surprised. After rubbing 3-4 pumps in my hands, I massaged the leave-in onto both my hair and scalp, threw it under a bonnet and woke up with hair noticeably more hydrated than the night before. I was amazed and swore up and down the oil was magic—hell, I still do. I repeated this process night after night, finding that each time I did, the state of my hair continued to improve. When wash day came around, it was amazing to see that there was no excess build-up caused by days of using the treatment. Instead, my strands had completely absorbed the perfect blend of jojoba oil, sweet almond oil, argan oil, and antioxidant vitamin E, keeping my hair protected against the wash. I’ve been hooked ever since.
I’ve dubbed this my “glow-up oil,” because that’s exactly what it’s done for my hair. Whether it’s straight, in it’s natural state, or in Lil Bow Wow plats under my wig, I use this religiously to ensure that I never have to worry about dehydrated hair. I keep at least one bottle in my purse and on those days when the elements want to try me, I know I can rely on the treatment oil to give my strands a pick-me-up. Yes, I use it during the day too.
My favorite thing about Francois’ overnight repair is the long-term results. Since using it, my hair is less dry after shampoos, retains moisture a thousand times better, and shines without needing heavy product to do so. It’s also color safe so I never have to worry about my highlights beginning to fade. From the first use you’ll feel an immediate difference in your hair. I promise. Summer is around the corner, and whether you’re prepping to let the curls free, or protective style it up, this oil is the perfect way to promote growth and all-around hair health. Prestige haircare brands that are made for us are hard to come by, and I’m holding on tight to this one, you should too. The Vernon Francois Overnight~Repair Treatment Oils are $42 at sephora.com.
