Hair oil: Leave-in treatment for healthy, shiny hair
Have you got unruly, dull or dry hair? A hair oil gently coats each hair shaft without weighing the hair down. As a result, the lengths look wonderfully silky and shiny. The conditioning oils replenish moisture and provide the hair with beneficial and nourishing ingredients. They help to prevent split ends and repair the hair structure. At parfumdreams you can find a selection of products for different hair types and requirements.
How do hair oils work?
Hair oils are primarily composed of botanical oils that are immediately absorbed by the hair without making it greasy. They also cover the hair shaft like a protective coating, making it look shinier and silkier. At the same time, they shield the hair from external aggressors such as heat or cold that can damage the hair structure. The beneficial substances in the oil penetrate deep into the hair shaft, providing it with nutrients and moisture. The botanical oils contained in haircare products are suitable for different types of hair and needs:
- Coconut oil prevents the hair from drying out.
- Jojoba oil makes the hair stronger.
- Olive oil helps to repair brittle hair and dry ends.
- Grape seed oil stimulates the blood supply to the scalp and can promote hair growth.
- Almond oil hydrates dull hair with split ends.
- Argan oil restores shine and silkiness to brittle hair.
If you have oily hair, there’s no need to avoid intensive hair oil treatments. But it is important to select a product for your hair type. Hair oils that contain tea tree oil regulate sebum production. They prevent oily build-up on the roots shortly after washing.
Which oil for hair is best?
The hair oil should contain high quality ingredients that are specially formulated for your hair type. We recommend hair oils without any silicones. While synthetic polymers might make your hair appear healthy and feel silky at first, they create a barrier that actually prevents the natural ingredients from penetrating your hair shaft. After a while the hair starts to get dehydrated and brittle.
Hair oil: How to use it
Simply apply hair oil to damp hair to complement your styling routine. Depending on the length and thickness of your hair, you’ll need one or two drops for the lengths and ends. Use a wide-toothed hairdryer. The oil makes the lengths easier to brush through and facilitates styling. Hair oil such as argan oil also coat each individual hair, sealing in moisture and making the hair look much healthier and shinier.
The oil’s protective properties take effect in dry hair. It coats the hair without weighing it down, providing effective protection against UV damage. At the same time, it prevents frizz and static load. To apply, put a few drops in the palm of your hand and rub your hands together. The warmth from the friction makes the oil easier to distribute. Then slowly and evenly run your palms through your hair. Leave out the roots and the scalp to prevent them getting oily too quickly.
If the lengths and ends are very dry and brittle, use a hair oil as an intensive treatment. It contains lipids that attach themselves to the hair shaft, making the hair softer and giving it a silky sheen. To apply the oil, massage three to four drops all over your hair before washing. After around 30 to 60 minutes, wash the oil out with your regular shampoo.
