Coconut oil , Argan oil , almond oil the list is a endless. With so many different oils out there and benefits for each, how do you know which to choose? In this blog we outline how certain oils can combat dryness, frizziness and even dandruff! 

 

  1. Coconut oil.

The holy grail of hair care. It acts as a heat protectant, intensely moisturizes hair strands, prevents damaged hair and breakage, helps to prevent hair loss, as well as aids in hair growth. What more do you need for your hair? Because of its fatty acids it penetrates the hair more deeply than any conditioners which tend to just sit on top.

How to apply: 

If your scalp usually gets oily, apply coconut oil to your hair from the mid-shaft to ends, excluding the roots. If your scalp is dry, apply onto the scalp as well. Since coconut oil is solid at room temperature, we recommend heating it up slightly so it melt

 

  1. Argan oil

Also known as Morrocon oil, argan oil will do major wonders for your hair. Argan oil is packed with beneficial ingredients like vitamin E, ferulic acid, and fatty acids, as well as antioxidants, which fight UV rays, and prevent hair cell damage. Just a few drops of Argan oil will not only protect your hair from heat, nourish, and moisturise it, but it will also reduce dryness, brittleness, and frizziness. Perfect for those holiday adventures. 

 

How to apply: 

Apply a few drops to your palm, rub your hands together and distribute evenly on damp or dry hair, avoiding the roots. 

 

  1. Olive oil 

Olive oil is high in fatty acids like squalene and oleic acid, which are emollients. These emollients soften and smooth hair strands by creating a film and coating hair shafts. Olive oil is also high in vitamin E, which fights off free-radical damage from sunlight and pollution. This oil acts as a natural heat protectant, as well as conceals the damaged hair strands, giving a sleeker look. Olive oil for hair will leave it looking stronger, healthier, and shinier. But don’t use too much it will make your hair greasy. 

 

How to apply: 

Once a week, apply 1 to 2 tablespoons of olive oil to dry or damp hair, distributing it evenly and thoroughly. Wrap in a towel or shower cap and leave on for about half an hour. Rinse with cold water and feel free to skip the conditioner.
