a key to <the> best results

Does the word "best"(superlative degree of comparison) always demand "the" before itself?
Eg: It's a key to best results. (In other words can "the" be omitted in informal speech or it should be put in all cases, no matter what style it is?)

    "Immersion into the language environment is a key to best results" or: in one of the bloggers' video about hair treatment one of them used the headline "Keys to best twistout results" and even in his speech he omitted "the".

    And I'm just interested in the possibility to omit "the" (though standard rules don't permit it).

    It's a part of an essay, just a sentence about (the) best ways of learning English (if you meant it)...
