6 Best Hair Oils for Healthy Hair

12 Dec

Girl Applying Hair OilYou don’t always have to buy fancy, big name hair products for your hair. Sometimes the best products are actually very simple and found in your local store. What are these simple hair products? Well they’re natural oils.

Hair oils are a great way to nourish and hydrate your hair. Not to mention the perfect way to give your hair the exact vitamins and minerals it needs.

Not only are natural oils excellent emollients, but they can act as sunscreens, cleansers, protectors, and nourishing agents for our scalps, skin, and hair. They form films on the surface of the hair or skin and act as a barrier to the environment and hold in moisture. They can provide antimicrobial benefits to products used on skin and hair as well.

So make sure to check out these 6 fabulous natural oils for your hair.

Argan Oil

Argan oil, or Moroccan oil, is produced from the seeds of the Moroccan argan tree. The benefits of this oil for damaged hair are tremendous. It works to moisturize and strengthen hair and make it soft, shiny, and healthy. Argan Oil is the latest natural cure-all ingredient that’s appearing in every beauty product right now.

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is one of the best natural nutrition for hair. It helps in healthy growth of hair providing them a shiny complexion. It is effective in reducing the protein loss  for damaged and undamaged hair. Regular head massage with coconut oil ensures that your scalp is free of dandruff, even if your scalp is dry.

Avocado Oil

Avocado oil is excellent for the hair because it is rich in proteins and amino acids, and it has high levels of vitamins A, D, and E. The proteins help fill in all the crevices in your hair’s cuticles, so each strand is stronger and better protected from future breakage. Since it’s a thicker oil, it works best on medium- to coarse-textured hair.

Olive Oil

Olive oil, which is also referred to as the “godmother of hair oil,” is great for moisturizing and  deep conditioning. Not only is olive oil ultra-hydrating but it is packed with nourishing antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids that improve elasticity and restore strength and shine. Olive oil is very heavy and works well with thicker, coarser hair.

Almond Oil

Like most nut oils, almond has high contents of vitamins A, B, and E. The oil heals split ends, improves circulation in the scalp to produce stronger hair, and can add luster and shine to dull hair. The fatty acids add UV protection by reflecting harmful rays.  It is very lubricative and gives a nice slippery feel to the hair and is moisturizing, but is not as thermally stable as olive oil.

Castor Oil

Castor oil has been used for generation and even today there is a huge demand for this oil in the market. The simple reason behind the popularity of castor oil is due to its curative and medicinal properties. Castor oil thickens hair, promotes hair growth, prevents thinning, moisturizes, helps reduce split ends, and helps to tame frizz. The Ricinoleic acid found in castor oil help in getting rid of bacterial and fungal infection on the scalp that causes hair loss.


Complete dependence on hair oils  but ignoring a healthy diet can only give disappointing results. Best hair oil treatment coupled with a protein rich diet is considered to be the right combination to regain thick, luxuriant hair. Hair is composed of 85 – 88% of proteins, hence having foods high in protein is essential to restore those beautiful locks of hair.

Although, hair oil mentioned above work do miracles with your hair, don’t expect results overnight. A time period of 6 to 7 weeks is generally required to see noticeable improvement.
