1. Vernon Francois Overnight Repair Treatment Oils
Vernon Francois' Overnight Repair Treatment oils come as a pack of four vials where you use one full vial per use and for best results, you should use the treatment once a week. The oils are a blend of Jojoba oil, Sweet Almond oil, Argan oil and the anti-oxidant Vitamin E, so you wake up with soft, hydrated, frizz-free hair. When applying, you should spray on to dry hair evenly from root to end and you will be surprised at how fast the oils absorb into your hair so you don't have to worry about waking up with a greasy pillowcase. These treatments are perfect for the ladies with thick, curly hair as the oils absorb so quickly so they'll wake up with shiny, frizz-free strands and can simply style and go - no washing needed. And thanks to the lightweight, sweet almond scent of Vernon's treatment oils, your locks will smell amazing all night and into the next day.
