How To Use Hair Oil For Maximum Result
Are you using hair oil but not getting the best results? The secret to getting the best out of any product is the right usage. The best products will be wasted if they are not applied right. Follow the four steps below for maximum results!
1. Choose the right oils
Yes, you heard right, oils! Carrier oils like coconut, almond, avocado, jojoba, or grapeseed oils can be used alone, it is best to use a combination of carrier oils and essential oils. While essential oils like lavender, peppermint, or sandalwood oils may be too strong for independent use, they can be diluted with carrier oils for effective use.
Best combination; 15 drops of any essential oil in 6 teaspoons of any carrier oil is perfect.
2. Heat your oil
When the oil is warm, it penetrates deeper through your hair cuticles and seal. All you need is a few seconds of heat and your oil is ready for use. Don’t apply too much oil, moderation is key.
3. Massage gently
It won’t do to simply pour oil into your hair and rub it together for a moment. That’s a waste of time, you have to make sure you massage the oil gently into your scalp for at least 10 minutes. Make sure it gets deep into your scalp for maximum effect. The best time to apply hair oil is at night, before bed.
4. Wrap and Wash
After massaging the oil into your scalp, cover your hair fully with a warm cloth but don’t bind too tight. The hair covering allows your pores and cuticles to open up and makes for deeper penetration of the oils. Leave the wrap overnight then wash the oil off with lukewarm or cold water in the morning.
