What Do Hair Oils Actually Do?

In the past few years, hair oils have become big news and almost every brand has one in its range. Whether it's lightweight, for adding volume, repairs damaged hair, shine enhancing etc. etc. There's a lot of positives to using hair oils and choosing the right one for you can make or break your hair.

Hair Oils can be used for a multiple of ways:

  • To de-tangle hair
  • To protect against heat
  • To seal split-ends
  • To encourage hair growth
  • To strengthen hair
  • To add shine
Whatever you want to get out of your hair oil, make sure you pick the right one. Coconut Oil/Water is my favourite to use as it's so light and smells gorgeous, whilst adding shine to my hair. Argan Oil is a classic one and all-rounder if you're not too sure which to choose. A lot of brands mix different oils in their hair oils to target various hair-related problems, so pick whichever suits you!

Application is essential for hair oils, apply too much and you will end up in a greasy mess and too little and you'll get little to no results. I always apply hair oils to the bottom 3/4's of my hair as anything too near my roots will turn them greasy and horrible! Personally, I prefer pump dispensers as I can get just the right amount out into my palms. Then I'll massage into my palms and comb through my damp hair evenly, concentrating right at the ends. If it doesn't look like there's enough, I'll add more - you can always keep adding but you can't take away once it's on!

Some brands even recommend adding a few drops to your shampoo and conditioner, if you're not that confident at applying oils to damp or dry hair. I think it's a great idea but I much prefer using them separately and controlling how much I use! Sometimes I do add more oil to my hair after drying it, but this is mainly at the ends as they're so dry. 

Have you used hair oils before? Which is your favourite?
