Hair oiling is a procedure suitable for all hair types – regardless of color, thickness and condition. You can oil even strong and healthy strands – they also require protection. Of course, hair oil should be proletariaty matched to hair porosity. The more damaged hair is, the higher the porosity. However, is you do not know the level of porosity of your hair, you can reach for an oil that suits all hair types, that is castor oil or jojoba. Additionally, you can also go for an oil that is recommended for medium porosity hair, mainly because this type is most common worldwide. This is a list of oils, suitable for medium porosity hair:
- Sesame oil
- Sweet almond oil
- Rice oil
- Avocado oil
- Macadamia oil
- Argan oil
Oiling dry hair is the most comfortable way of conducting the treatment. All you need to do is to go to the bathroom, carefully comb your hair and… apply oil. What is more, if after oiling, you are planing to wash your hair, you can freely perform full hair oiling which includes applying oil on scalp. The best results will be achieved if you conduct a few-minute scalp massage. This will improve blood circulation and ‘force’ hair bulbs to work. In consequence, strands will grow stronger and healthier.
Oil must be left on hair (the best duration of the treatment is a few hours, however, 30 minutes will also provide wisps with an adequate amount of nourishment), then, washed off with a gentle shampoo.
Whoever thinks that oil will increase greasy scalp or weigh hair down, couldn’t be more wrong. Its action starts inside hair, under scalp skin and in the bulbs. Moreover, a gentle shampoo should deal with excess oil and perfectly wash it off.
Furthermore, hair oil can also be used as a leave-in serum without rinsing. It is the most comfortable and least time consuming form of oiling dry hair. Simply apply the oil of your preference on dry hair before styling or after – to protect the hairdo and tame any unruly wisps. Moreover, many women use hair oils only on the ends – thanks to which, they are secured from drying, mechanical damages and unfavourable weather conditions. Oil is absorbed and at the same time it protects hair throughout the day and ensures beautiful appearance and resilience. Dry hair oiling with an oil as a serum can be used even several times a day (especially if you have extremely damaged and dry hair that requires regeneration).
