What is a Hair Oil?

Hair oil. From beauty bloggers to hairdressers and even international stylists, it's become a go-to product for healthy-looking luminous hair. But what is hair oil, how do you use it, and which hair oil is the best for your hair type? All the answers for you to make the best decision, here.

Hair oils are oils extracted from a variety of plants, herbs and fruit. Highly concentrated in natural nutrients, different types of hair oil have been used over the centuries to promote healthy-looking, shiny hair.

What are the benefits of Hair Oil?

Applying hair oil on a regular basis can help prevent hair breakage. As well as preventing split ends, the right hair oil can also provide radiant shine, enhance hair colour and detangle.

Will Hair Oil Make My Hair Greasy?

 A common misconception is that hair oil will make your hair look and feel greasy, which it actually won't, unless you apply too much to the roots. The real cause of oily-looking hair is usually the scalp's overproduction of sebum. A hair oil with the right properties could even help rebalance this overproduction and reduce greasy hair days.


Why Use a Hair Oil?

The right hair oil depends on your hair type and concerns. The most common problems are dryness, a loss of shine, greasiness, a lack of volume and damaged hair.

How to use Hair Oil:

There are different ways you can use a hair oil. On wet hair, you can lock in precious moisture by applying a few drops along the lengths and ends, making sure you distribute evenly, before drying. On already-dry hair, hair oil can help smooth down any frizz or flyaways, and is particularly good for adding shine to curls and waves. 

How often you should apply hair oil depends on your hair type and needs. Some people apply a few drops every time they wash their hair, whereas others only reach for the oil if their hair is feeling particularly dry. Only a few drops are necessary thanks to hair oil's high concentration.
