For dry and brittle hair, for growth and dandruff - we talk all about the best hair oils and, of course, about where to look for them.

Natural oils moisturize the hair and add shine to it, relieve itching and peeling of the scalp, normalize (and even activate) the growth of hair. Choose your oil and begin restoration work. 

Argan oil

It is one of the most expensive oils and is rightly called "liquid gold": those who use it know that every drop is worth the money spent. Argan oil (also called Moroccan) contains a lot of vitamin E, omega-3 fatty acids, and antioxidants that can do amazing things with dry, coarse, and naughty hair. Take note that argan oil is excellent hair protection against harmful UV radiation. It is also not fat at all (compared to other oils, of course), and you can use it quite often. 

Olive oil

Surprisingly, the same Extra Virgin olive oil, which usually found in the kitchen, can be used to moisturize your hair deeply. Massaging the scalp with olive oil will stabilize and ─ ideally ─ work to improve the health of the scalp, and combing the strands with it ─ make them more lively, soft and smooth (here the secret is that oil fills the damaged areas of the hair, skillfully "patching them up). Olive oil can use 1-2 times a week: apply a couple of tablespoons to the hair and scalp, evenly distribute and wrap in a towel for half an hour, then rinse thoroughly (even without using an air conditioner). 

Coconut oil

It has a potent therapeutic effect. Many love him because of the smell a la "just returned from the Caribbean," but of course, this is not the main thing in him. Coconut oil has a high concentration of vitamin E, which dry hair rods will absorb with pleasure to the last drop, after which the length will become vibrant and shiny, and the roots will be healthy and active. Coconut oil also contains lauric and capric acids with antimicrobial properties. You will regularly rub it into the scalp (followed by washing, of course) ─ get rid of minor infections and irritations, which, among other things, cause an annoying itch when you always want to scratch behind the ear. If you are buying a natural product, not a cosmetic one, make sure that it is unrefined organic coconut oil.  

Rosemary oil

Damaged hair is very susceptible to environmental negativity ─ dust, soot, and toxins that settle on them daily. To solve the problem, we use rosemary oil ─ it has excellent cleansing properties, and also, contains proper doses of vitamin B, iron, and calcium. Rosemary oil is ideal for strengthening thin and brittle split ends and prevents thinning. Before use, rosemary oil best diluted with base oil ─ for example, olive ─ in a 1: 2 ratio. 

Jojoba oil

Jojoba oil, strictly speaking, is not fat ─ it is the liquid wax of the seeds of the same-named shrub growing in the southwestern part of the USA, which is extracted by cold pressing. Jojoba oil contains a large amount of vitamins A, E, and D and is perfect for all types of hair. It is so convenient and standardized that often included in shampoos, conditioners, and masks (and this is not bad!), But, of course, jojoba oil is more effective. Use it to nourish and moisturize hair, strengthen its roots, stimulate growth. It is best to make a mask of oil: apply it all over the hair and scalp, leaving it for 30 minutes (and even at night), but you can add a couple of drops to your favorite shampoo just before washing.  

Avocado oil

Avocado oil, like the fruit itself, contains proteins, healthy fats, essential amino acids and vitamins (A, D, E and B6), due to to which it fills the voids in the hair shaft caused by various mechanical damages and closes the cuticle flakes, preventing hair from tangling and their trauma. Avocado oil is quite intense and dense. Therefore it is recommended for hair of medium density and length ─ thin and short it will make it more substantial. 

Castor oil

Castor oil is an ideal remedy to stimulate the growth of new hair. It is rich in vitamin E, minerals, and proteins. The oil also contains antioxidants that maintain an average level of keratin in the hair shaft, make it strong and smooth. Plus, it takes control of the process of hair loss and, thanks to its antifungal properties, perfectly protects against dandruff. Buying castor oil yourself is better than cold pressing (similar to olive) and using the popular scheme ─ make a 30-minute or hour mask.
