What Is the Purpose of Hair Oil? We Give You All the Answers

There probably isn’t a person on the planet who doesn’t want to grow hair that looks healthy, shiny, and strong. Unfortunately, the ingredients in many hair care products contain harsh chemicals that are harmful to you and the environment. That’s why at The Earthling Co., we offer products made with natural ingredients and no harmful ingredients.

One of the proven methods of repairing your strands is to apply hair oil as part of your regular beauty routine. The results can be transformative, and the technique is easy to perform. Below, we’ll map out the benefits of hair oil and how to use it to reap all of its amazing perks. If you’re looking to start swapping to earth-friendly products, you can complement our Hair & Body Oil with products like our plant-based body wash bar.

Benefits of a Hair Oil

You may be wondering about the purpose of hair oil because you might imagine it would weigh down your strands and make your mane look limp and greasy, but that is far from the truth. The  right oil formula can deliver various nourishing results for your unique hair condition and type. You can expect glossy strands, a fortified hair shaft, and an infusion of vitamins and minerals that can remedy a head of damaged hair. Hair oil can also balance your scalp’s sebum production.

Think of hair oil as a protective coating or layer for the hair. This is especially necessary when you want to use a blow dryer, flat iron, curling iron, or other hot styling tools to achieve your look.

If your beautiful curls are sometimes hard to tame, you are certainly not alone. Our hair oil can do wonders to keep those frizzies away and make your strands look polished and neat. Not only that, but our hair oil, with its super moisturizing vegan keratin formula, can also be used on your face and body for superb hydration and a smooth, soft skin. The purity of oil comes from nature and is a clean product that locks in moisture and provides an enviable glow.

Key ingredients in our hair oil include vegan keratin and a gentle blend of desert date oil, jojoba oil, and prickly pear oil. The vegan keratin helps with hair fortification and reparation while the oils work to moisturize, soften, nourish, increase suppleness, and maintain your natural moisture barrier. 

The Application

You can use hair oil in a number of effective ways. Often, just a little dab will be plenty. For example, before you head out the door, you can spread a drop or two of oil into the palms of your hands to smooth down flyaway strands on already-dry hair. If you have curly hair, scrunch your curls with the hair oil to enhance your curls, add shine, and break up any styling products you used.

Creating a scalp moisture treatment is another way to use hair oil. Massage the oil into your scalp and let it sit for 15-30 minutes. After the time is up, use our low-waste shampoo bar and conditioner bar to wash your hair.
