5 Natural Oils For Your Hair

October 25, 2016 by Seymone Brutus

Dry hair is the biggest problem for women of all hair types. I used to ask my stylist not to apply oil to my hair so I can have body and movement, not wanting to weigh my hair down with oil. While she applied a small amount of oil, little did I know that thereafter I was not promoting healthy hair and hair growth, but breakage.

What's best for our hair?

Hair that is conditioned and nourished from the inside-out. Whether you mask a large amount of oil for a deep conditioner treatment or apply a small amount in your palm for daily use -- it is important to use at least one natural or essential oil for your hair.

1. Extra Virgin Olive Oil promotes soft and shiny hair and treats dandruff. Massage into hair after using your favorite shampoo and conditioner. Place a plastic cap on your hair for 15 to 45 mins. Rinse and style your hair as desired.

2. Orange Oil is a sweet smelling oil included in a wide variety of beauty products. The oil I mentioned earlier used by my stylist included orange oil. I just loved the aroma that lingered well into the week. At the time I had a relaxer and styled my hair into a wrap hairstyle. She used orange oil after my hairstyle was finished. A dime sized amount was smoothed onto my hair, then combed down.

3. Tea Tree Oil is a great cleansing oil for your scalp. It has an antibacterial agent that cleanses that eliminates dirt, oil and dandruff. It even treats acne for your skin. Use a Q-tip soaked in tea tree oil and run it along your scalp if you have braids or apply on finger tips to massage into your scalp.

4. Peppermint Oil is a wonderful spa experience. It's included in a lot of hair products like Paul Mitchell TeaTree Special Shampoo. Yes, it includes tea tree oil too! A "tingle of invigorating tea tree oil, peppermint and lavender." It is essentially a great cleanser and nourishes the scalp from itchiness and dryness.

5. Avocado Oil compliments the ultimate deep conditioning treatment. It heals dry and damaged hair with its numerous nutrients including "Potassium, Vitamin C, Vitamin B-6 and Magnesium". Use it as often as you wash your hair, along with your homemade avocado conditioner

Which one will you try? Happy hair days!
