Dry hair? Dry scalp? Damaged hair? Need some hair TLC? Hair oils are the perfect solution. Depending on your needs, there’s a wide variety to choose from including coconut oil, avocado oil, olive oil, Argan oil, and more. However, when considering applying oil to your hair, it’s important to know how much and when to apply.
Know Your Hair Oil
What kind of hair oil are you using? If it’s 100% natural oil, you should apply this to dry hair, let the hair absorb the oil and then wash out. If it’s silicon based, apply to wet, freshly washed hair, before you style it.
Help! I applied too much!
It’s more common than you think. If it’s your first time using hair oil, there’s a good chance you’ll apply too much. To soak up excess oil, try a using a dry shampoo like Rusk Deep Shine Invisible Dry Shampoo near your roots and use a brush to move it down the hairs. Not doing the trick? Style hair up in a sleek pony or bun or better yet, tell people you were going for the wet hair look.
Prevent Excess Oil Use
A great way to make sure this doesn’t happen to you is to start with a dab of oil in one hand and a little bit of water in the other. Rub your hands together and then comb through hair. Based on that “experiment” figure out how much you need to use the next time. It’s better to be safe than sorry.
As with any hair product, if you’re applying on a regular basis you should occasionally use a clarifying shampoo like Rusk Sensories Clarifying Shampoo (which smells HEAVENLY!). It’s going to help make sure your hair retains its natural shine and beauty.
