How Often Should I Put Oil In My Hair?
Using quality oil as a hair treatment is an excellent method to keep hair in tip-top condition. However, for the best effect, it’s necessary to follow a reasonably structured approach as opposed to slicking any old oil on your hair day after day.
The first thing to determine is the best type of oil to use. Without a doubt, this has to be argan oil, a very specific type that comes from the kernels of the argan tree that grows in Morocco. It contains a rich source of vitamin E, as well as essential fatty acids, melatonin, CoQ10, and plant sterols that together hydrate the individual hair shafts, reduce split ends and damage, and have powerful antioxidant properties.
There are many different ways to use the power of argan oil to stimulate beautiful locks, but let’s first look at the direct use of argan oil on your hair.
1. Determine your hair type
Those with dry hair will benefit from the regular use of argan oil, perhaps using it up to three times a week. Massage it into the scalp as well as combing it through the hair. For dry, frizzy hair a little can be used as a daily styling product to help your locks remain smooth and shiny.
Those with normal hair probably want to keep oil use to around twice a week. Smooth a little through your hair when styling.
If you’ve got oily hair then it makes no sense to use oil as a styling product. However, you can still benefit from an overnight treatment once a week as discussed below.
2. Overnight oil treatments
All types of hair can benefit from the overnight use of argan oil and once a week is ideal for a good hair routine. Massage into your scalp, comb through, wrap in a towel (or use a hair wrap or sleep turban), and sleep on it. In the morning wash your hair with a good quality shampoo. Condition and style as usual.
3. Hot oil massage
Gently heat a little oil until it’s warm to touch, and then massage into your scalp. Even better, get someone else to massage it in for you! Continue for at least a couple of minutes—the longer the better. The massage helps the oil penetrate and the warmth and movement stimulates the hair follicles. It’s ideal to carry out such a treatment once a week (or maybe twice for really dry hair).
You can also use argan hair products to further benefit from the oil’s potent effects. The Moroccan Gold Series is the ultimate range for beautiful hair, using only the purest unrefined argan oil from the Sous Valley in Morocco. Their innovative collection of spa-quality treatments has quickly become the go-to range for those who want the softest, silkiest hair possible, and is suitable for all hair types.
Using the power of argan oil in everyday hair care means that your crowning glory benefits from not only from the oil but a crafted combination of other fortifying natural products. This results in strong, manageable, beautiful hair that shines with health and remains that way even with environmental stresses and those caused by everyday styling.
