What is the best oil for curly hair? What can be the best hair oil for dry hair out there? Here is a complete guide on the best hair oils!

Do oils really help hair? What is the best oil for your hair? Hair oil is a popular treatment for any hair woe but isn’t regularly used in most people’s hair care routines. If your beauty area is already packed with plenty of hair products, do we really need to add in another product? 

While it might seem like overkill, many hair oils can take the place of some heavy styling products that leave scalp buildup. That being said, finding the right hair oil for your hair type is key. Here’s a complete guide to the best hair oils and how they work for your hair needs. 

Coconut Oil for Curly Hair & More: A Guide for All Hair Types

Argan Oil

You may have heard of liquid gold, but does Moroccan Argan Oil live up to the hype? We are here to tell you that it really does! 

Argan oil is jam-packed with essential nutrients that help nourish and protect hair from dryness while repairing breakage. WOW Skin Science’s Moroccan Argan Oil Shampoo is plant-powered with argan oil, saw palmetto, and nettle leaf to provide some much-needed soothing moisture to the driest hair and most irritated scalps

Can I oil my hair everyday? If you have dry or frizzy hair and need an extra boost of moisture and smoothness, then try applying argan oil directly to your hair. 

Coconut Oil

A multitasking staple you’ve probably heard of is coconut oil. The best thing about coconut oil is that it can be used on all hair types with amazing results! Yes, you can absolutely use coconut oil for curly hair! Coconut oil (and even coconut milk) can help combat dry and brittle hair since it’s an effective moisturizer.

Which oil is best for hair growth and thickness? Coconut oil can also help promote hair growth and slow down hair loss by thickening and strengthening past the damage done by pollution, color treatments, and/or heat styling. Include the nourishing coconut oil in your hair care routine with WOW Skin Science Coconut Milk Shampoo And Conditioner

Jojoba Oil

Jojoba oil is another great hydrator that works for all hair types and is especially ideal for thin and fine hair. The relatively lightweight formula ensures it will hydrate without totally weighing your hair down. This makes it very useful for curly hair to lock moisture into your curly locks. Jojoba oil can even help you out if you have a dry and irritated scalp or struggle with pesky flakes! It is able to soothe the scalp and soften your hair with amazing results no matter what your hair type is! 

Olive Oil

Olive oil isn’t just for the kitchen -- it can be used for your hair as well! We recommend using extra virgin olive oil for thick hair that is dry and in need of moisture. This works amazingly for curly hair, as the slick is essential to coat the strands properly. Olive oil contains several different emollients that soften, hydrate, and seal your split ends! Focusing on the ends will ensure all your hair is hydrated since thick hair can prevent scalp oils from reaching the ends of your hair. That being said, those with thinner hair should generally try to avoid using olive oil as it can easily weigh down hair that is lighter. 

Castor Oil

Castor oil is known for its soothing properties that work for your hair too! Similar to olive oil, castor oil is quite thick and works best for curly and coarse hair that needs some extra moisture to promote healthy hair.

Does applying oil reduce hair fall? Since castor oil is rich in fatty acids and antioxidants like vitamin E, it promotes hair growth, and mends split ends until you can get back in the salon. WOW Skin Science’s Castor Oil is the go-to for nourishing dry hair, skin, and promoting head-to-toe hair growth! 

How to Properly Use Hair Oil

Now that you know which hair oils will work best for your hair type, you need to learn how to use it properly. The one-size-fits-all approach for using hair oil won’t work to best suit your needs. 

In fact, there are several different ways that you can apply hair oil depending on what you’re trying to achieve for your hair. So here’s a quick guide on a few different ways that you can use hair oil to benefit your hair whether it’s fine, curly, or damaged:

  • Apply hair oil 30 mins before you wash and condition your hair in the shower, as a hair mask. Using it as a scalp/hair treatment will condition your strands, and giving it enough time to soak and really work. Better yet would be to leave it on overnight! Just apply to dry hair, pin your hair up, and wrap with a hot towel (or workout) and allow the heat to open the cuticles and let the oil penetrate deep into your hair. Or simply put on a shower cap. Follow up with a proper shampoo and conditioner like WOW Skin Science’s Coconut Milk Set for amazing results! 
  • Apply hair oil to damp hair. This is a particularly effective method for those with curly hair types as it can help to boost the natural curls and let them dry into flawless frizz-less curls that everyone will envy. You only need a small amount, so be careful not to apply too much, or your hair will take ages to dry properly! 
  • You can also apply hair oil to dry hair. This works well for those who deal with split ends, frizz, or flyaways. Applying a bit of hair oil to problem areas can help improve the appearance of these annoying hair issues and leave you with perfectly shiny and sleek hair.
