If you have naturally curly hair, then you must be trying out different routines designed for curly hair care. It’s surprising how every curly hair care routine talks about oiling it. After all, there are many benefits of oiling your curly hair and that’s what we look at in this post.
Find out all the great reasons to oil your curly hair.
#1. Oil Moisturizes Your Hair
Curly hair is naturally more porous than straight hair. As a result, your curls tend to lose moisture quickly in dry weather and absorb a whole lot of moisture from the environment during hot and humid days.
The best way to prevent the excessive loss or gain of moisture from the environment is to oil your curls. During dry weather, the oil penetrates deep into your hair, preventing moisture loss and helping your curls get their bounce back. During humid days, oil acts as a barrier that prevents moisture absorption, so your curls maintain their shape.
#2. Prevents Frizz and Split Ends
As oil moisturizes your hair, it helps reduce frizz, a common concern for curly hair. By applying oil to your dry curls, you can look forward to a more defined hair look.
Moreover, oiling is a simple way to prevent split ends.
#3. Improves Blood Circulation to the Scalp
A nourished scalp is home to healthy hair, so why not nourish your scalp with oil? Massaging oil to your scalp improves blood circulation and keeps problems such as dandruff at bay.
#4. Promotes Hair Growth and Strengthen Weak Hair
We all look forward to healthy hair, and applying oil makes a great way to promote hair growth and strengthen weak hair. Certain hair oils, including castor oil, argan oil, peppermint oil, and coconut oil, all possess hair growth and strengthening properties.
So what are you waiting for? Get your favorite oil and give your curly hair a wholesome treat.
