3 Ways To Use Hair Oils

by Schwarzkopf AU

For a long time oils were feared because it was mistakenly thought they made your hair oily or lank. But oils are the best for my hair. My thirsty locks can’t get enough of the stuff. Thick, coarse or curly hair is happiest when styled with oils.

If you have fine hair, there are new formulations that are perfect for your hair and won’t weigh your hair down. You can even use them as a pre-shampoo to take extra care of your hair.

Check out these three simple ways to use oils in your hair.

As A Pre-Wash Treatment

Before you wash your hair, massage a few pumps of oil through your scalp and hair. It’s a great opportunity to give yourself a head massage and stimulate blood flow to your scalp and hair follicles. Using hair oils before you shampoo helps to protect your scalp so it’s ideal if you have fine hair, dry hair or a sensitive scalp.

To Control Frizz

Treat your hair, and help control frizz with a hair oil. Apply your oil or serum to your towel-dried hair after washing. When you hop out of the shower, add in a pump of hair oil to the ends of your hair. Use a wide toothed comb to gently distribute the product throughout your hair.

You can leave your hair to air dry, or add a heat protectant before blowdrying your hair.

To Finish Your Style

Smooth your finished look and add shine with an oil. Once your hair is dry, you can use a pump of hair oil to finish styling your hair. They can tame any fine flyaways and give your style that final polish.

I like to rub the oil between my palms first and then run my hands over the ends of my hair. Then, with only a tiny amount of product left on my hands, I smooth over the top of my hair to grab any fine hairs and keep them in place.
