Oiling your hair has been practised for years; hair needs some level of natural oil to keep its colour, gloss, and lustre, as well as to help protect it from the damaging sun.
“Oiling your hair improves circulation in the scalp and promotes the hair follicle. While there is no direct link between oiling and hair growth, regular oiling can protect your hair and keep it from becoming dry “The Esthetic Clinics’ Consultant Dermatologist, Cosmetic Dermatologist, and Dermato-Surgeon, Rinky Kapoor, believes.
Hair oiling aids in the following ways:
* By keeping the hair from drying out * By sealing the cuticle and assisting the hair strands in healing
Oiling must be done correctly in order to be beneficial to your hair. Make sure you don’t rub the oil in too hard and that you don’t leave it on for more than an hour. If you leave the oil on your hair for an extended period of time, it can clog the pores and prevent oxygen from reaching the hair, resulting in damaged hair, boils on the scalp, and finally hair loss.
Furthermore, oiling is not recommended for persons who have dandruff or a naturally oily scalp. Excessive oil application brings dust and debris to the scalp. Varied hair oils have different benefits, and you can choose one based on your hair issue; nevertheless, don’t overdo it.
