Our hair is exposed daily to harsh weather, pollution, dust, chemicals, etc. Such things damage the hair, causing dryness, splits, tangles, and much more. Though our scalp produces oil and sebum naturally, it may be insufficient to moisturize the whole length of the hair. Regular hair oil application adds a protective layer on the hair strands and protects the hair from heat by reflecting the sunlight and heat. It also acts as a lubricant, making it easy to keep the mane free of tangles. Natural hair oils are rich in fatty acids and antioxidants that help replenish the lipid layer on the scalp. The oil act as a sealant and helps to smooth down the hair.

The Correct way to apply Oil

The hair oil should be applied at least twice or thrice a week. The best method is to massage the oil on the scalp and leave it overnight. Then, if it doesn’t suit you, you can apply it for about half an hour before washing your hair.


Regular hair massages with warm oil for five to ten minutes will help increase the blood flow to hair roots. Wrap the hair in a hot towel or tie it in a bun for proper absorption and seepage of hair oil.

The most important thing while applying oil is to distribute it evenly by sectioning off the hair into different parts. Long, thick hair may need more oil. The best method is to start at the tips and work your way up.

How to Choose the best hair oil for hair growth

Each person is unique, and their hair type also differs accordingly. One hair oil cannot satisfy the needs of all hair types. People are usually hesitant about applying hair regularly for an oily look. But the benefits outweigh the consequences. If you are not comfortable using oil outdoors, do it at night and wash it off in the morning.

When choosing hair oil, it is essential to assess the scalp’s nature, the hair’s texture, climate, and any hair infection such as dandruff.

Essential oils are used to boost hair health. They should be mixed with carrier oil and massaged into the hair and scalp as they may cause allergic reactions.
