Hair oils help provide your hair with nutrients that may have been stripped off while washing your hair, and therefore, depending on your hair and scalp type, are an important addition to your hair care routine. The action of massaging hair oil into your scalp also helps increase blood circulation and improve health of the hair.
What do hair oils do?
Hair oils provide your hair and scalp with essential nutrients and minerals that may have been stripped of while washing it. They also provide extra moisture and nourishment and so help in making your hair healthier and more voluminous.
What is the difference between a hair oil and a conditioner?
Hair oils protect the hair from losing moisture while conditioners coat the outer cuticle of your hair to help it retain hydration and nourishment. Depending on your hair type, you can use both for healthier hair. Dry hair will benefit from the use of hair oils more than oily or fine hair will.
Can frizzy hair apply oil on their hair?
Yes, hair oil will maintain the moisture in the hair shaft, thus reducing frizz. Be careful, though, not to step outside after oiling your hair and scalp, as that will attract dirt, sweat and pollution, and clog your pores.
How many times should we apply hair oil?
Depending on your hair type and texture, you can oil your hair once or twice a week. You can also opt for a hair spa or hair oil massage at Lakme Salon for extra indulgence once every fortnight or once a month.
