A guidebook for beginners! Do you make the same mistakes while hair oiling?

Including natural oils to day-to-day beauty routines can bring many benefits, such as increasing moisture, smoothness, elasticity, softness and healthy shine. However, the most important thing is to conduct hair oiling the right way!

Hair oiling is an easy and – more importantly – all-natural way to take care of your hair. Unfortunately, at the beginning, it might be difficult to distinguish which oil will be more suitable for a particular hair type or which method will work well for us. Hence the most common mistakes during oiling, which we commit unconsciously.


» intermittent hair oiling – we wrongly count on that just a one-time application of oil will make the hair regain health and former splendour. Unfortunately, if you want hair oiling to bring benefits, you must do it on a regular basis. Applying oil only occasionally from time to time without a specified schedule is the worst idea.

» inappropriately matched oil – it is the most common mistake that has a significant influence on the effects of the procedure. Only the right oil will bring the desired results, while a mismatched one can weigh the hair down, increase oiliness or cause frizz. How to match oil to the needs of our hair? It is best to define hair porosity – how it is built. The easiest way is to assess the degree of porosity of the hair is by taking a hair porosity test that will help specify its condition and choose the right oil for the problem.

» excessive haste – the process of hair oiling requires time, and in return, we receive something very precious – long-lasting and in-depth hair regeneration. The minimum of time necessary for the oil to stay in the hair is half an hour. However, it is best to do the procedure during the night, then you give it a good few hours to work on the hair structures before the morning shower.

» lack of variety in regard to the methods and oils – hair loves diversity and changes. It is worth using different methods of hair oiling (dry, wet, warm, conditioner, etc.) and choosing different oils or oil blends. Insisting on one method is a bad decision.

» inaccurate shampooing and rinsing – the remaining oil must be thoroughly washed from the hair and scalp. If the oil remains in the base of the hair and on the scalp, it can overburden the strands, clog pores or cause dandruff. Use delicate shampoos without SLS to wash the oils off. However, it is worth washing your hair at least twice to make sure that it has been cleansed thoroughly.
