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

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.
