Hair oil gives your hair an added shine, smoothness, and even protection against frizz! Hair oiling is the practice of pouring oil onto hair and massaging it into the scalp to increase moisture, luster, and shine. Hair oiling may soften the hair and provide vitamins and minerals that get stripped from frequent washing. Here are a few reasons why you should add a hair oil to your daily hair routine.
Benefits of Using a Hair Oil
According to Healthline, Oils play an important role in protecting hair from regular wear and tear. Oiling hair regularly reduces hygral fatigue, or the swelling and drying of hair. Oils protect the follicle from surfactants by filling the gap between cuticle cells.
“Oil helps in scalp health. When you gently massage the scalp it helps in exfoliation and sometimes that helps in reducing hair fall,” says Dr. Khushboo Garodia.
Garodia is a certified trichologist, or hair and scalp expert. She explains that oils have fatty acids that help replace lipids in the hair. These are lost due to chemical treatments, styling, or even pollution.
“Lipids play a very important role in making the hair look and feel healthy. They help maintain the shine and gloss of hair,” she says.
What oil you use will depend on your hair needs. “Different kinds of oils have different vitamins… and with direct application of these oils, the shaft of the hair gets strengthened,” says Garodia.
Keep in mind, when using oil on your scalp, it may be worth testing to be sure you don’t have an allergy to an ingredient!
