Hair oiling has been enjoying a major comeback in recent years, popping up on TikTok tutorials and gracing the shelves of trendy beauty stores. But for millions of people, particularly those with roots in cultures that have practiced it for centuries, it's an ancient secret to healthy, luscious hair. But what exactly is this trendy ritual, and is it right for you?
More Than Just Shine: While your hair will definitely thank you with a radiant shine, oiling goes way beyond surface-level beauty. It's a deep-nourishing treatment that penetrates the hair shaft, delivering essential fatty acids and vitamins that strengthen strands from the inside out. This is a blessing for dry, brittle, and damaged hair, giving it a new lease on life.
Scalp Savior: Don't neglect your scalp! A gentle massage with oil not only improves blood flow, promoting hair growth and preventing dandruff, but it also soothes itchiness and irritation, creating a healthy environment for your follicles to thrive. We advise using our Professional Paddle Brush after oiling your hair as it is gentle on the scalp and ideal for detangling hair
Frizz Fighter: Oiling coats the hair cuticle, sealing in moisture and creating a smoother surface, resulting in manageable, frizz-free locks. Say goodbye to bad hair days, hello to smooth, polished strands!
Split End Slayer: The ends of your hair are the oldest and most susceptible to damage. Regular oiling prevents and repairs split ends, keeping your hair looking fresh and healthy instead of ragged and dry.
How to Oil Your Hair:
Oiling your hair is a simple process that can be incorporated into your regular hair care routine. Here's how to do it:
- Choose your oil. Select an oil that suits your hair type and needs. One of the most popular at the moment is Hair Syrup.
- Warm the oil (optional). Gently warm the oil in a hot water bath until it's lukewarm. This helps the oil penetrate the hair shaft more easily.
- Apply the oil. Massage the oil into your scalp using your fingertips or a scalp massager, focusing on areas that tend to be dry or itchy. Then, apply the oil to the ends of your hair, working your way up to the roots.
- Leave it on. Cover your hair with a shower cap or warm towel, we would recommend our XL Luxury Hair Wrap to leave on and let the oil soak in for at least 30 minutes, or even overnight for a deeper treatment.
- Wash it out. Shampoo and condition your hair as usual.
