Which are the best oils for the hair

Although there are many oils with a multitude of qualities we consider that there are some that are especially beneficial for the hair.


We will see which are the properties and benefits of each one and for which problems they are indicated.

Jojoba oil


Jojoba oil has a chemical structure similar to the sebum produced by our scalp. By being accepted as a natural part of our skin has the opportunity to nourish deep hair follicles, moisturizing to the inside. It also penetrates the inside of each hair, hydrating and repairing any damage it may have. That’s why it softens and brightens hair. It also helps the dry scalp to regain its natural lipid balance.

You can use jojoba oil as a serum, applying it only to the tips to treat forks or split ends.

You can also apply it to all hair and scalp and leave for a minimum of 30 minutes or more.

You can even put a few drops of this oil on your usual mask to enrich it.

Coconut Oil


Coconut oil is a wonder. Among all its virtues we can highlight that it eliminates frizz, softens, protects from heat, repairs, prevents falling, boosts growth, hydrates more deeply than any other oil, retaining moisture inside the hair so that it does not evaporate.

For these reasons it is one of the most effective hair treatments available.

In order to obtain all its benefits it is important that you buy a virgin coconut oil, which is not refined because refined oils have lost much of their properties.

Apply the coconut oil, in liquid form, to the hair and let it rest for a minimum of 30 minutes. You can leave it overnight, if you want, to optimize the results.

If your scalp is dry, you can also apply it to the roots to moisturize and moisturize the scalp. In addition, applied in this way it also helps to stop hair loss and promote new hair growth.

Castor oil


100% pure virgin castor oil has many beneficial properties for hair. Contains antioxidants, vitamin E and minerals, which helps hair to grow healthy. It also has antifungal properties that help eliminate the causes of dandruff. Softens and hydrates hair, prevents split ends and controls hair loss.

Before applying it you must mix it with another more fluid oil, such as coconut or olive oil, because it has a very thick consistency. You only need to mix two or three drops with two or three tablespoons of carrier oil. However, the amount may vary as needed.

Apply to all hair and scalp. Put on a shower cap and leave it on all night. Wash your hair in the morning.

You can use this treatment once a week.

Olive oil


If you want your hair to be healthier, stronger and shinier, olive oil is the right one. It covers and disguises the most damaged parts of the hair, making your hair look elegant. In addition, it is a good heat protector, which at the same time hydrates it.

Apply the olive oil on the length of the hair and let it work for about 1 hour. Then all you have to do is wash your hair with shampoo and plenty of water.

Argan oil


This wonderful oil is rich in vitamin E and antioxidants that fight and protect hair from the sun’s harmful rays. Contains ferulic acid which is a natural antioxidant that, at the same time, enhances the effect of other antioxidants. Helps improve collagen and elastin production. It also has a powerful protective effect against ultra-violet rays. It also nourishes, hydrates and eliminates frizz.

Distribute a few drops of this oil throughout the hair. You don’t have to apply it to the roots. Although if you do it nothing happens, because it does not have a consistency as greasy as other oils. No need to rinse your hair.

What you should know before using hair oils

Choose organic oils. If they are not organic at least make sure they have only natural ingredients.

Remember that all oils are greasy. That’s why it’s best not to use too much, because you’ll have trouble removing it.

Be consistent if you want to see results. If you use it only once, don’t expect miraculous results.
