What does hair oil do?
Whether you’re equipped with a hair oil in your haircare arsenal or you’re reading this to know if you should buy one, you might be wondering about the benefits of oiling hair. And, along with the benefits, what exactly does a hair oil do to our tender tresses? and why is it integral in achieving Aussome hair? Let us help you out with this one…
Hair oil is the staple product we can always rely on to revitalise thirsty tresses from the depths of despair, it works to make strands less brittle and more supple at the same time. What else could we ask for? We’ve compiled the most noticeable benefits you’ll see from oiling your hair, just to remind you what hair oil does and reiterate why we all need one in our haircare routine:
- Hair oil helps to strengthens strands. We subject our tresses to harm every single day, from a quick blow-dry to a tight-back pony, we wreak more havoc on our hair than you may first think. Hair oil works to protect the hair from these damaging factors by oiling strands, which in turn forms a protective outer layer around delicate strands. Hair oil functions as a sealant against heat damage caused by styling, which we are all guilty of (sometimes at least!).
- Hair oil works to hydrate strands and fight frizz. The unequivocal benefit of oiling hair is that dry strands are hydrated and frizz is tamed with a coin-sized amount of hair oil. It does this by creating a physical barrier around the hair strands, preventing moisture loss which is what causes strands to appear dull and dry.
Why use hair oil?
Whatever your haircare worry, there isn’t a problem that hair oil can’t solve and smoothen out. From the finishing shining touch to an up-do to a deep hair oil treatment on days when you find yourself stuck at home, Aussie has a hair oil for every occasion. But why use a hair oil? We can think of a few reasons why, let us help you out...
- Hair oil gives strands added shine, smoothness and protection against frizz. If dryness, dull strands or frizz are a problem for you, hair oil could be your knight in shining armour. It not only strengthens hair, but adding a little Calm the Frizz Lightweight Oil into your daily haircare routine will help to protect hair from frizz-causing humidity and dryness.
- Lightweight hair oil is perfect for thin or fine hair. Some hair oils are so light that you can use them every time you wash your hair! Even if you have fine hair, Aussie’s Reconstructor Lightweight Oil is your best partner in crime. It’ll help strengthen those strands for free-flowing locks from morning to night.
How to use hair oil
So now you’re all clued up on what hair oil does to your tender tresses, and why we should all use a hair oil, let’s talk how to apply hair oil.
Step 1. First off wash your tresses, following the usual steps. Shampoo, condition, and, if you feel like it, use a hair mask (much needed ‘me time’ anyone?) aka deep condition. For very troubled tresses in the depths of despair, try Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor Deep Treatment.
