How to oil your hair for best results - 5 Common Mistakes to Avoid

Your mom was right when she made you sit down and oiled your hair, oil champi as she would call it. Oiling has great importance for your hair and scalp health, and not just as a stress buster. When oiled regularly, your tresses retain their gloss, bounce and soft texture long after. Oiling nourishes and protects the scalp, given you use the right hair care products.

However, you may be making a few mistakes in the process of oiling, which may be counterproductive to all the effort. Do not worry. Check out these tips to be a total pro in hair care:

5 Things you should not do while Oiling Hair

1. Avoid washing off oil too soon – Let your hair feed on the nourishment of an oil massage – don’t just shower right away. Let the oil remain for at least an hour.

2. Combing or tying too tightly after oiling – Combing or tying hair into a tight pony or braid just after oiling hair will weaken the roots and damage hair. After a pampering dose of oil massage, hair tends to be relaxed and rigorous combing will cause knotting. If you have to comb, do so after a while and from root up to the tip of the hair.

3. Using another product right after oiling – Post your hair oil application, it’s advisable to avoid another hair care/ styling product. Most of these products include chemical ingredients. They will only end up ruining your hair, making it feel and sound rough.

4. Applying oil on wet hair – One of the most common mistake is to massage oil into wet hair. Wet hair tends to be prone to breakage and even gentle pulling and tugging can cause hair fall. Use only natural oils made with nourishing ingredient like Hemp with Argan Hair Oil and investing in the future of your hair wisely!

5. Using wrong oil You are probably not going to get the best results if you do not use the right blend of oils. Read the ingredients of your hair oil carefully. Do not use oils that provide no nourishment to your hair or have been through chemical processing. Oils that have been cold-pressed, made using best ingredients and ones that suit your hair type are going to give you the result that you have been craving for. Use fresh products, that are not meant to sit over the shelves for years as they will be more effective and nourishing.

How to Oil Hair for Optimum Results?

Now that you know the don’ts of applying oil, you need to know the dos to maintain healthy hair and scalp. The right product with the right technique always gives the best results.

Oiling is a time tested and proven method, and part of family rituals. Oiling relieves stress from the cranium and prevents fungal attacks, strengthening hair roots. However, because the scalp produces oil naturally, applying oil is a technique that involves the right quantity and product.

Follow these instructions for optimum results:

  • Use lukewarm oil to cover the area of your scalp smoothly.
  • You should oil hair once every week.
  • Just apply a little oil by dipping your fingers a little into the container, and apply on to the scalp.
  • Continue massaging your scalp for about 20 minutes. Keep rubbing your scalp in gentle circles, with your fingers. Avoid rubbing into your hair.
  • Wrap a hot towel around your hair for around ten minutes to aid in proper absorption oil into your scalp.
  • Apply shampoo the next day. You should always use organic, gentle, non – chemical-based shampoo.
