How To Use Hair Oil

In a world filled with trendy hair products, sometimes the classics reign supreme. Among them is the hair oil—an age-old secret to nourishing and nurturing your strands. While it may seem daunting at first, incorporating hair oil into your routine can work wonders for your locks. We’re here to demystify the magic of this multitasking elixir. 

10 questions about hair oil, answered

1. What are the benefits of using hair oil?
Hair oil is a powerhouse of nourishment for your scalp and strands as it seals the cuticle, strengthens hair, prevents flakes, and smooths frizz. From promoting hair growth to enhancing shine, its benefits are abundant.

2. What should you look for in hair oil?
When selecting a hair oil, prioritise moisturising and hydrating ingredients tailored to your hair type and needs. This could differ by hair type and needs so do your research first.

3. What types of oils are best for the hair?
There are a range of types of hair oils and they can be used for different reasons. For example, vitamin E is great for boosting scalp health and stimulates hair growth. Sweet almond oil is good because, depending on your hair type, it absorbs quickly into hair, adding moisture, and healing breakage. Argan oil protects your hair from heat but will also nourish and moisturise. Additionally, it reduces dryness and unwanted frizz. 

4. How much hair oil should you use?
A key part of understanding how to use hair oil is knowing how much your tresses need. This depends on your hair length and thickness. To avoid overdoing it, you should apply a small amount to start. You can then add more oil to achieve your desired result if necessary. 

5. Should you apply hair oil to wet or dry hair?
Whether you apply hair oil to wet or dry hair depends on your desired outcome. For a deep conditioning treatment, massage the oil into your scalp and distribute it evenly to the ends of your hair before shampooing. Alternatively, apply oil to dry hair for added shine and moisture.

6. What is the best way to apply hair oil when doing a hair treatment?
Our Sweet Hair Booster is a deep conditioning treatment pre-wash treatment, so the best time to apply hair oil is an hour (or so) before you shampoo.
Step 1: Apply the oil to your scalp (either with a dropper or with the tips of your fingers) and massage into the scalp.
Step 2: Distribute the oil down to the ends of your hair.
Step 3: Once you’re done applying the oil, you can wrap your hair in a towel or use a shower cap.
Step 4: When you’re ready to rinse out the oil, shampoo and rinse thoroughly, then condition your hair as normal.
For an even deeper treatment, another option is using hair oil as an overnight mask. Apply it before bed, leave it on while you snooze, and shampoo your hair the next day.

    7. How often should you use hair oil?
    You should use hair oil two to three times a week, depending on how often you shampoo your hair. Consistency is key to reaping the long-term benefits.

    8. What is a common hair oil mistake that people make?
    Less is often more when it comes to hair oil. People sometimes use oil every day on the scalp, which can cause product buildup and clog pores. Unfortunately you really can have too much of a good thing 🙁

    9. What hair tools can you use with hair oil?
    Use a scalp massager or your fingertips to ensure even distribution of the oil throughout your scalp and hair. These help to maximise absorption, increase blood circulation at your scalp and ensure every strand receives the nourishment it deserves.

    10. Can you use hot tools with hair oil?
    If you plan to use heat styling tools, opt for an oil with heat protectant properties and a high smoke point, such as argan oil. These oils provide an added layer of protection against heat damage while nourishing your hair.
