What Type Of Hair Oil Is Good For Your Hair?

You guys know how much I swear by the hair oiling treatment.

It’s because regular hair oiling with the right type of oil has made my hair what it is today.

It has the power to completely transform your hair. The regular hot oil treatment helps the oil to penetrate through your hair and the scalp. The heat actually helps to open the cuticles and helps in better penetration of the oil.

The best part is using the right oil according to your hair types can be a total game changer. If you have been using the same oil coconut oil from the blue bottle, then I would urge you to think again and experiment with different oils.

Just don’t decide your hair oil depending on the misleading advertisements and the celebrities endorsing them. In the early days, I was one of those who used to buy products on the basis of the ads, but trust me it is a really bad idea.

Coconut oil

We have all grown using the good ole coconut oil. But it might not be ideal for you to use.You should opt for Coconut oil if you have dry hair, mild dandruff, and itchy scalp.

Coconut oil also helps in promoting hair growth and is also well known for its anti-bacterial properties. My Favorite Coconut oil is St. Tropica's Hair Growth Oil and Max Care Virgin Coconut Oil. Try opting for extra virgin cold pressed coconut oil for best and quickest results.

Olive Oil

If you have really dry or curly hair with hair fall issues, you should opt for olive oil.

Olive oil contains Vitamin E and is rich in antioxidants. This makes the oil ideal to moisturize your dry hair and control hair fall effectively.

My personal favorite Olive Oil brand is Figaro Olive oil. And try opting for extra virgin olive oil for best results.

    Jojoba oil is my favorite for the hair because the molecular weight is perfect for hydrating strands! I don’t think I could use sesame oil, it smells too yummy lol.
