Conditioner for greasy hair
L’Oreal Paris Elvive Weightless Nourishing Conditioner
Those with oily hair types might be used to skipping over the conditioner aisle for fear that it will leave hair only looking and feeling worse.

The formula is infused with fine coconut oil, so hair feels irresistibly smooth and smells gorgeous too.
