Hair oils see no gender, the benefits of hair oiling apply to both men and women. In fact, men are missing a trick by not adding this to their grooming routine. Rather, oiling hair regularly can be extremely beneficial. But many of us seem to have forgotten about that, thanks to our busy schedules and of course, India’s hot and humid weather that demands a dry, oil free hair care regimen. Here, we have compiled a list of 4 extremely important benefits that oiling your hair regularly can provide you with – the ones you won’t get with shampooing and conditioning alone.
1. Contains essential nutrients
Natural, unprocessed hair oils contain several vitamins and micro-nutrients that shampoos and conditioners cannot provide us with, mainly because of the way their functionality is defined. Your hair needs those essential nutrients to grow and sustain its strength, volume, sheen, and overall health.
2. Promotes healthy hair
You’re supposed to leave the oil on for an extended period of time for a reason. Oil is designed in such a way that it penetrates the skin tissue – thereby enriching and revitalising it in such a way that shampoos and conditioners are unable to. Also, shampoos and conditioners are meant to do their job superficially. So, if you want deep nutrition, oil is the only way.
3. Promotes a healthy scalp
When you massage your scalp with oil, it boosts blood circulation in your scalp in a way that no other procedure can manage to. The nutrients in oil are distributed evenly all across your scalp, and of course, your hair. Only shampooing and conditioning won’t be able to do that.
4. Prevents frizzy hair
Regularly using hair oil will prevent frizzy hair in a sustainable manner. Yes, using serums and hairsprays can help you with that too, but only temporarily. Regularly oiling your hair will ensure that you never need to use any of these products to counter frizz or unruly hair (except for styling purposes).
