Harmful hair treatments and harmful chemicals constantly put our hair in danger. The shampoos, conditioners, styling gels and even the simple act of combing and blow-drying can leave curls looking and feeling dull, lifeless and damaged.
Now you can return to nature and use these miracle natural oils to transform your hair. Some of these oils can even be used to enhance hair growth.
1. Coconut Oil
Not only does the sweet smell of coconut oil instantly transport you to a tropical island beach, it also has incredible benefits for transforming your hair.
The most effective way to apply coconut oil is to massage it into the roots and scalp and then run your fingers all the way through to the tips of your hair approximately 30 minutes before you shower. Rinse out with warm water and a natural shampoo.
2. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
We’ve all used olive oil for cooking and dressing salads, but did you know that extra virgin olive oil can also transform your hair?
Much like coconut oil, olive oil nourishes, moisturizes, conditions and strengthens your hair while also minimizing hair loss and dandruff.
Try this simple olive oil treatment for achieving beautiful hair at home.
3. Argan Oil
Argan oil is one of the most expensive oils for our hair, but it’s certainly worth every penny. It is extracted from the kernels of the argan tree – an endangered tree native to Morocco.
Application is similar to that of most other oils. Place a tablespoon of the oil into your hands, rub together and apply to hair starting at the scalp working through to the tips of the hair. Use a brush or comb for even distribution if necessary. Wrap your hair in a towel for an hour, rinse thoroughly and shampoo.
The essential fatty acids present will strengthen your hair proteins resulting in stronger hair with fewer split ends. In addition, the rich sources of vitamin E will repair hair damaged by destructive agents and the non-greasy argan oil will add shine and moisture without the horrible greasy feeling.
So the next time you want to repair or improve the appearance of your hair, try one of these natural oils or a hair oil blend instead of spending a fortune on over-the-counter chemical-laden hair products.
