There are many hair oils on the market and seems it is not easy to choose that which will deliver promises to fix your hair.
What to look first when you are choosing any hair oil treatment?
The most common mistake ladies are falling into is choosing the hair oil treatment depends on hair type overlooking the scalp health issues. For example, if you have “greasy” hair your decision is avoid providing your hair with any oil treatment though your hair is dull and still addicted to breakage and tangling. “Greasy” hair is directly related to the overproduction of sebum, a waxy type of substance naturally occurring in the body which is designed to keep hair supple, soft and waterproof. Without taking control over this problem, chronic greasy hair can lead to other long term hair problems including potential hair loss or some forms of scalp a breakout which leads to hair loss as well.
Regarding to hair oil treatments there are two types of hair care which will make your hair looks great: scalp treatment and hair shaft treatment. Scalp oil treatments are usually designed to stimulate hair regrowth by supplying the hair follicles with enough moisture and regulate the produce of natural hair sebum oils. Hair shaft treatment are designed to provide hair with extra shine and elasticity by gluing in hair cuticle layers, so that prevents hair from dull frizz prone look and eliminated hair breakage.
What should be in hair care oils?
Look at the percentages of carrier and essential oils in the product. Carrier oils are the foundation of the product, have much heavier consistency and usually come from seeds, vegetables, nuts and fruits (Argan/Moroccan, Perilla Seed Oil, Grapefruit Seed Oil, Rosehip Oil, Evening Primrose Oil, etc). Essential oils are much lighter, evaporate quickly and usually added to the product to provide therapeutically stronger effect, besides that many essential oils have very pleasant aroma (Ylang Oil, Cedarwood Oil, Geranium Oil, Rosemary Oil, Tea Tree Oil, Ginger Oil, Thyme Oil, Peppermint Oil, Yarrow Oil, Cypress Oil, Lavender Oil, Lemongrass Oil, Lemon Oil, Chamomile Roman Oil, etc) Learn about our Green Touch Beauty hair care.
What to avoid in ingredient list?
Buying hair care oil you should read whether the oil is synthetic or natural. To reduce the manufacturing costs, many manufacturers are using synthetic ingredients as a base (up to 98%): mineral oil, cyclopentasiloxane, dimethicone (silicon oil), cyclomethicone, butylphenyl methylpropional, etc. and just 1-2% of natural oils are used in the product. Synthetic ingredients might give instant relieve to over processed hair, but because synthetics builds up in between cuticle layers, eventually hair strand becomes much vulnerable and fragile as never before.
The other trick many manufacturers are using to reduce the production cost is using cheap grade oils like peanut, olive, canola or almond oils as a base, so this hair oil treatment is no better than if you will use any oil from local groceries as a homemade remedy.
