The benefits of a oil bath for your hair.

Hair Care Tips
Jun 29 2018

Flashback of a few years ago: I’m in my bathroom, hair dripping with coconut oil. I had read, at the time, that it was THE product to integrate into your hair routine to have beautiful hair.

A few months before, it was with argan oil that I brushed my head, hoping to thwart the effects of a frenzied use of flat iron and my colorings every three weeks.

Yet the results were not very conclusive. Therefore, I learned two things from this. The first is that it is useless to put a pour a bucket of oil on your head to nourish your hair, if you then have to shampoo your hair 4 times to remove the oily residue, which will of course cancel all the benefits of the oil bath.

The second is that all oils are not created equal, and it is better to choose one adapted to your type of hair for the treatment to be worth it.

One moment … what is an oil bath?

An oil bath is a treatment … with oil, for the hair. It is used to restore their vitality and hydration, in addition to nourishing the hair and protecting it from external aggressions (sun, heating tools, etc.).

I would like to emphasize that the term oil bath is not to be taken in the literal sense. Indeed, it is useless, even misadvised to drown your hair with oil. Only a small amount is needed!

How do we proceed then?

It’s simple: you warm up several drops of oil by rubbing it in the palms of your hands, and apply it on the length and ends of your hair. Then we wait for at least thirty minutes, or preferably all night, before rinsing with warm water, then shampoo. I often do this on wet hair to seal in the moisture even further. 

Did It take two or three shampoos to get the oil out?
This is because you had too much of a heavy hand on the product. Try again using less oil.

What is the best oil to use?

Simply put, the best oil is the one that is right for your hair. Here are some popular oils and hair types on which to use them.

Coconut oil: For normal hair. Coconut oil is superb to give a little boost of radiance.

 

Castor oil: Use on scalp, split ends and damaged or brittle hair. Viscous, this oil is applied in very small quantities on dry or dull hair, but gives fabulous results when the dosage is controlled!

 

Sweet almond oil: For dry, brittle or frizzy hair. As an emollient, sweet almond oil brings a lot of softness to your hair.

 

Argan Oil: For very dry hair that needs a massive dose of moisture. Use as a mask that is left overnight.

 

Jojoba oil: The texture of jojoba oil is very close to that secreted by the skin, it is perfect for oily or mixed hair (oily roots and dry ends). The scalp is deceived, and secretes less sebum.

 

Sesame oil: For colored hair, because of its antioxidant effect. Be careful not to choose grilled sesame oil, unless you want your hair to smell like Chinese takeout!

 

Grape Seed Oil: Nourishing and protective, this oil is perfect for dry hair!
