We all spend our fair share of time complaining about our hair. Too dry, too thin, or simply just unruly, oftentimes the right oil can fix many of your hair woes. Here’s a quick guide to choosing the right oil for your hair.
If you suffer from dandruff or have a dry scalp you should try jojoba oil. Jojoba oil is excellent for your hair because it is similar to a naturally produced oil called sebum. You can put jojoba oil in your hair as a leave in treatment. Apply to your hair 30 minutes prior to shampooing or simply drop a few oils in your conditioner while in the shower. Let the oils eliminate your dry scalp and add some extra moisture to your hair.
Coconut oil is an extremely versatile oil and can solve many skin and hair problems. Coconut oil repairs broken hair, protects from heat, and helps with hair growth. Coconut oil is effective because it is absorbed into the hair instead of lingering on the surface so the hair retains the moisture. Apply the coconut oil to your hair, avoiding the roots, and leave for about an hour before shampooing it out.
If you are prone to frizzy or brittle hair, Moroccan oil (also referred to as Argan oil) is an excellent way to ease the pain. Apply a few drops of Moroccan oil to your damp or dry hair and smooth over from roots to tip. The result leaves your hair soft and manageable, not to mention the scent is amazing.
Growing your hair out can be an annoying process due to breakage and frizzy hair. Castor oil is a helpful tool to aid in healthy hair growth due to its natural vitamin E, minerals, and proteins. Use castor oil as an overnight treatment using a shower cap to keep your pillows safe.
Olive oil is not only useful in the kitchen but can also do wonders for the hair. Olive oil has rich moisturizing properties that coat your hair covering up damaged hair strands. It will help your hair look sleek and become strong and healthy. Apply olive oil to dry or damp hair and cover your hair for about half an hour. Rinse in the shower with caution as the oil is very slippery on the shower floor!
The oil you choose to use on your hair may give you different results than that of your friends’. Each person will have varying results and it’s important to find the oil treatment that works for you!
