What’s the deal with Hair Oils?

Hi there Lovely!

Hair oils entered the scene a couple of years ago and they entered with a bang. Suddenly every single hair care brand had one and for good reason. Hair oils are here to stay!

But which one is the best and how do you use them to get the result you want?

Having naturally curly (or maybe I should say frizzy…), dry hair I swear by hair oils in order to give my hair enough moisture to not look like a bird’s nest.

So here comes my list of favourite hair oils and how I use them.

Coconut Oil

This oil is my holy grail and I use this oil for pretty much everything, but my favourite way to use it is as a treatment for my hair. I use this oil as a deep conditioning treatment once a week, leaving it in for at least 3 hours but most of the time around 6 hours. It’s a great way to nourish, strengthen and mosturize your hair. You can also use coconut oil as a remedy for problems with your scalp such as dandruff and it allegedly helps your hair grow faster (take this with a grain of salt, it largely depends on the natural growth rate of your hair). However, like I said, I use this mostly to deep condition by doing a hot oil treatment, as well as a moisturizer for my face on days I feel my skin needs a little extra loving. If you haven’t tried coconut oil, please give it a try and find your favourite ways to use it.

Moroccanoil Light Treatment/Morrocanoil Original Treatment

So, this is the oil that started it all. Honestly, up until only a couple of months ago this spot belonged to our number 3 of this list but once I started experimenting with this particular hair oil, I fell in love. There are two versions of this oil; the Original one and the Light version. I personally prefer the light version, simply because I have fine hair and I find the original treatment to be just a tiny bit too heavy. This oil works as both a leave-in treatment (be careful with how much you use thought) and as replacement for an ordinary hair mask. I prefer to use it as a pre-shampoo oil or add a couple of drops in the developer cream as I dye or bleach my hair to get a more even result.

Wella SP Luxe oil

This oil, oh my god! It has been my absolut staple product for so many years and the number one on my list up until Moroccanoil took the spot. This oil is amazing. It’s sole purpose I would say is as a leave-in treatment. However you can use it both in towel-dried hair as it contains heat protection for blowdrying and you can use once you hair is dry for moisture and tons of shine. The oil is really light so your hair will soak it up really well and it won’t leave your hair feeling greasy. Also it smells like liquid candy, literally!

I hope this list might help you find the oil that works best for your hair. Naturally, if your favourite brand has an oil of their own try it out and see what you think about it. The only thing I recommend you watching out for if you’re after as much moisture as possible for your hair is silicones.

  1. I was looking forward to try Wella SP, but after knowing that MorrocanOil has taken its spot, then I will have to reconsider as MorrocanOil has been a staple of mine since the last four years.. I go for the Original one though!!😚💕
