All About Hair Oils & Serums
Which oil is good for hair?
Argan oil is the best oil treatment for dry, frizzy or damaged hair. When your hair has been dyed using chemicals, whipped by the wind and exposed to the UV rays of the sun for years on end, it can become dry and brittle and needs special attention to restore it to its former glory. Similarly, long term use of heat styling products like a hair straightener or blow dryer can do real damage to your hair. Argan oil is fast absorbing and nourishes your locks. Try our Moroccanoil Light Oil, the Juuce Botanic Oil Serum or the RPR My Argan Oil Elixir. Our hair oil smells and feels divine.
Other oils like coconut oil, macadamia oil and Kalahari melon seed oil are also used to nourish hair and lock in moisture.
How to use hair oil?
If you are using hair oil as a styling aid, it is best not to coat your wet hair in the product. Oil should be applied to damp hair that has been wrung out and towel dried at the beginning of the styling process. Start by putting a small amount into your palm, rubbing your hands together, then applying to the ends of your hair first. As the product transfers to the strands of hair, you can run your fingers through your scalp. Just be careful not to apply it too liberally to avoid a greasy look. Don’t forget the golden rule of hair oil: it’s very hard to remove extra oil when you have added too much during styling but you can always apply more if your hair needs it.
For curly hair, follow with other curl enhancing products, as needed. To get that straight, smooth, flawless hair feeling, a light application of oil should be enough.
If you are using a hair oil treatment, follow the instructions on the treatment packaging. Some oils require heating before use while others can be applied directly to your dry hair. Some need only minutes to work their magic on damp hair, while others can be applied and left on overnight to really nourish and strengthen your hair.
The Muk Spa Argan Oil Repair Mask is a hair oil treatment which is a moisturising repair treatment for damaged, brittle and dry hair. This treatment can also be applied (sparingly) to curly hair once your hair is dry and styled, to add definition and to moisturise the curls.
Hair oil can also be used to protect your hair from heat during styling. The Olaplex No 7 Bonding Oil is a lightweight oil which adds shine to your locks while also providing protection from curling wands, straightening plates or hair dryers that are used to blow dry your hair.
How long to keep oil in hair?
It really depends on the type of oil you are using in your hair. Always check the instructions on the packaging and follow them. It’s a good idea to purchase shampoo and conditioner that will efficiently cleanse your hair so that your scalp does not get an oily residue. Hairhouse sells dozens of brands that will work in conjunction with the oil you are using.
