There are a lot of reasons to use hair oil. It can help encourage new hair growth, nourish your hair, and moisturize it for starters. Oiling your hair also helps combat all the harsh environmental factors that traumatize your hair. And if heat, pollution, and sunshine aren’t enough, habits like over-washing or brushing too vigorously can cause damage. Regular hair oiling offers a great boost to your hair. It has its own unique way of strengthening and nourishing your beautiful mane. Here are a few tips to help you make sure you get the most out of every hair oil massage.
Avoid Combing or Styling Right After Applying Oil
Immediately after applying hair oil, your scalp is relaxed and your hair more fragile. Avoid hair breakage or hair loss by waiting a while to comb or style your hair. Some knots can be removed gently while oiling as you move from your scalp to the ends of the strands. If you still notice some knots, gently and slowly work them out from the tips to the top. This helps detangle your hair as well as spread the oils evenly across your strands.
Less IS More!
When it comes to hair oiling, try to spread the oil around more instead of increasing what you are using. Once you have it on your hands, spread it evenly so it covers every strand. Using more oil will mean using more shampoo later and that can end up stripping your hair of its natural moisture and oils. You can end up with damaged, dry hair. Use as little oil as needed to cover your strands.
Don’t Put Your Hair Up in a Ponytail or Tight Bun
Tight hairstyles can damage or break your gorgeous hair period. But it’s especially damaging after you’ve oiled your hair. Remember that your hair is vulnerable after oiling. If you tie it up in a tight ponytail or bun the added pressure can cause breakage and split ends. There are a lot of benefits to hair oiling, and you are doing it for healthier, fuller hair. Constricting your oiled hair can be counterproductive. If you need to pull it back, try tying it in a loose braid or bun.
Don’t Layer Hair Products
When you use hair oil, stick to it alone and don’t combine or layer it with other hair products. After you wash your hair and remove the oil, then you may choose to use other hair products. However, remember to avoid chemical-laden hair products that ruin the texture and quality of your hair. Many popular products dry your hair out making it rough and dull. That’s the exact opposite of what you want to achieve by using natural hair oils.
