How Makeup Artist Krishni Thavarajah Gets Soft, Silky Hair With Just One Product

Shine-boosting and frizz-fighting, makeup artist Krishni Thavarajah discovers a hair oil that leaves her strands feeling luxuriously soft and shiny.

Krishni Thavarajah’s Challenge: “I want soft, sleek hair with one simple-to-use product that won’t weigh my hair down.”

Beauty Solution: L’Oréal Paris Extraordinary Oil

Her Beauty Diary: Krishni made her first YouTube video when she was just 11 years old. Fast-forward a decade and she’s sharing makeup tutorials with her 200K+ followers on Instagram and YouTube. “If my hair isn’t done, my makeup look doesn’t get the justice it deserves,” she explains. “It’s like they’re sisters; you can’t have one without the other.”

Krishni, who has naturally frizzy hair, says it only takes a single drop of L’Oréal Paris Extraordinary Oil to achieve the right amount of glam. “It never feels greasy, and it makes my hair look super-sleek, shiny and soft.”

“This oil is like a moisturizer for your hair. It absorbs quickly and works on all hair types.”

Pro Tip: “A little goes a long way,” says Brennen Demelo, L’Oréal Paris Canadian hair artist and expert. “Rub a pea-size amount in your palms, and then run your hands over the surface of your hair, starting under your ear line. Concentrate on the ends as this is where your hair tends to be dry and more porous.”

L’Oreal Paris Extraordinary Oil

Because L’Oréal Paris Extraordinary Oil is infused with six precious oils, you only need one drop to hydrate, de-frizz and boost the shine of your hair. It can be used on wet or dry hair and is ideal for all hair types.

Three ways to use it:

    1. Before styling to protect hair from heat damage.
    2. Post-styling as a shine-enhancing finishing touch.
    3. Add it to your favourite hair mask for an extra boost of nutrition.
