To keep your hair healthy, you need to oil your hair. It is a necessity, and you cannot expect to have good hair without oil. The list of healthy oils available out there goes on; however, you first need to understand the difference between them and then start making a hair oil massage routine.
Have a look down below at some of the best oils you can use for shiny and healthy hair.
1- Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is a holy grail, and you cannot say no to that. It is not only a hair protectant but also repairs damaged hair as well as breakage. Apart from this, the oil also helps prevent hair loss and helps with hair growth.
Coconut oil has incredible moisture-retaining properties, and it stays inside the hair instead of evaporating. This property is what makes it much more effective than hair treatments out there. Coconut oil also comes with fatty acids, which enable it to penetrate the hair much deeper than other regular conditioners. This leads to amazingly beautiful soft and shiny hair, which is something we all want, don’t we? You should consider using organic coconut oil for the best results.
If you are someone who has an oily scalp, then you should not apply coconut oil to your roots. If your scalp is dry, then you must apply it there. Now the thing about coconut oil is that it is solid at room temperature, which is why you should heat it in order to melt it since that will make it a lot easier for you to apply it. Make sure to leave it in your hair for 30-60 minutes minimum, and then rinse with an organic shampoo. You should do this once every week.
2- Argan Oil
Argan oil is basically extracted from nuts of the argan tree, which is found in Morocco. It is an oil that can do wonders for your hair, so make sure to use this one.
The oil comes with amazing ingredients, and all of them provide multiple benefits. For example, it comes with ingredients like vitamin E, fatty acids, antioxidants, and so much more. These fight UV rays and prevent hair damage as well. Using just a couple of drops of argan oil is not only going to protect your hair from heat but is going to nourish it as well, which will ultimately reduce frizziness as well as dryness. This is why the oil is called liquid gold!
My go-to oil is argan oil by JuvaBun. It is completely natural and free from chemicals, alcohol, etc. It has no fragrance and is not diluted at all, which is something I see a lot of other companies out there do. I have tried out a lot of oils by different companies out there, but nothing beats JuvaBun! In order to apply it, simply add a couple of drops to your palm, then rub your hands and add it to your hair, avoiding the roots. The oil is not as greasy as coconut oil which means you can use it often.
3- Castor Oil
Castor oil is another amazing oil that leads to healthy hair. The oil comes from castor beans and is known for hair growth since it has amazing qualities such as minerals, proteins, and Vitamin E.
The oil also has antioxidants that support the keratin in one’s hair, leading to strong and smooth hair. You should get the cold-pressed castor oil which has no heat involved when it is being extracted. This is completely pure virgin castor oil. It provides hundreds of benefits, such as helping with hair loss, fighting dandruff since it has antifungal properties, and so much more.
The oil has a very thick consistency which is why you should always mix it with another oil such as olive oil or coconut oil. Add it to your scalp and leave it overnight for best results. Use it once every week and trust me, you will start loving the results. You are going to love this oil!
These are some of the oils you can add to your hair routine and flaunt your beautiful hair.
