Why Hair Oil Is The Key To Having Shiny, Frizz-Free Hair
Our hair is constantly exposed to heat and styling products that don’t exactly nourish our hair, plus many of us are guilty of over washing, which means we can strip it of its natural oils. But, don’t worry, there’s an easy solution to flawless hair – a hair oil. It will instantly make your hair look softer, shinier, and healthier, and if it’s regularly used it can help with split ends and even boost growth.
How does a Hair oil Work?
A hair oil basically works to replenish the hair follicles and will increase the natural tensile strength of your hair. The fatty acids within the oil will add a protective layer to your hair shaft, which is typically broken down by heat damage. This protective layer will also help safeguard your hair, especially in-between washes, from pollution, dirt and the ultraviolet rays of the sun.When you massage the oil into your scalp, you’ll also increase the blood circulation. This not only helps to improve blood circulation to damaged hair follicles but it can also help to reduce dandruff and stop your scalp from getting itchy – result! This means not only will your hair be way stronger, but because of it, you’ll have less breakage so it’ll look healthier and have killer shine.
Best Oils To Use
Different oils target different hair issues too: argan oil is amazing for dry hair, almond oil is best for treating dandruff, and coconut oil can help to boost hair growth. You can either buy the oil in its original form or get a hair oil that has a combination of healthy hair oils.
How should you apply a hair oil?
We would recommend keeping a hair oil with you when you’re on the go as it’s super light and can give your hair an instant health kick. It’s also amazing at taming frizz and flyaway when you’re on the run. It can be applied to both wet and dry hair from the scalp to the ends of your hair.
Rub four or five drops (a few will do for short hair) between your hands, and then gently run your fingers through your hair. You can also use your hair oil as a mask once a week by applying it to your scalp on wet, clean hair. Once you’ve massaged it into your scalp and all over your hair, wrap it in a warm towel. Then simply wash it off with shampoo an hour later or leave it overnight and wash it in the morning.
DIY to prevent damaged hair
Fortunately, it’s also one of the easiest problems to treat. This coconut oil mask adds much-needed moisture and nutrients to your hair, as coconut oil’s high levels of MCFAs (medium chain fatty acids) and lauric acid supports the hormone and cellular health of your hair.
Combine the ingredients and whisk together until well-blended. Apply the mask evenly over damp hair (think towel-dried consistency), paying particular attention to the ends of your hair. If you suffer from dandruff or a dry scalp, work the mix into the roots, too. Clip your hair up, so you don’t get oil everywhere, and cover with a shower cap. Let the mask sit for 30 minutes before rinsing with your daily shampoo and conditioner.
