Let’s talk hair oil. Because honestly, it sounds kinda counterintuitive, right? Yeah, we feel you. But we’re here to tell you that it’s one of the best products that the hair gods have ever sent us. You see, hair oil can be a miracle worker that does wonders for your hair. But that’s only if you know how to use it properly.
Lucky for you, we’re breaking down this beauty wonder worker today. Here’s everything you need to know about hair oil, including how and when to use it.
Hair oil is exactly that – an oil-based product for your hair. But not every type of oil will get the job done. And hair oils aren’t one size fits all – which means it might take a little trial and error to find the best one for your hair type and texture.
The magic of hair oil hides in how it interacts with your hair. When we wash (and sometimes overwash) our hair, it can strip away essential moisture that keeps your hair looking and feeling its best.
Using a hair oil will not only help add moisture back into your luscious locks, but it will also help by filling in any gaps in your cuticle cells. And errrbody knows that protecting and nourishing your hair cuticles is one of the best ways to crush all those hair goals for a great hair day – every day.
Using hair oil regularly comes with so many benefits you’ll wonder why you hadn’t started using one sooner. From boosted moisture to that sought-after shine, here are a few of our fave benefits of hair oil:
Sure, it might sound too good to be true, but we promise you won’t regret making hair oil your new BFF.
Most hair oils should either be applied before bed or washing your hair. This is when you’ll get the most benefit from it. However, some hair oils are also great for daily use – or between washes to infuse a little extra moisture into dry ends.
Generally speaking, each type of hair oil has its own recommended routine. But, if you ever have questions, just ask your stylist! We’re here to help guide you to the products that will work for your unique hair type and style.
