Oil baths for hair

What are the best vegetable oils for hair care? Which oil to choose according to your hair type? How to make an oil bath?

Find out how plant oils can help you slow down hair loss, strengthen hair, coat and repair lengths and add shine.

What is an oil bath and how is it applied?

The oil bath is one of the keys to a good natural hair routine. It consists of applying a small amount of oil to the lengths and/or the scalp.

On the lengths: coat the hair with vegetable oil, make a braid if the hair is long and leave for 20 minutes to overnight.

On the scalp: massage the scalp with a few drops of vegetable oil, moving the scalp under your fingers, in a very gentle way, to activate the microcirculation in the skull. Leave it on for 20 minutes to one night.

Tip: If you leave your oil bath on overnight, wrap your hair in a safe cotton shirt or wrap your pillows in the shirt to protect them from the oil

Which vegetable oil to choose?

  • Dry hair: argan, borage, castor oil, avocado, wheat germ oil, olive
  • Oily hair or oily roots and dry ends: jojoba, hazelnut, macadamia, nigella
  • Curly hair: broccoli, avocado, jojoba
  • Frizzy hair: shea butter, coconut, broccoli, castor oil, avocado
  • Fine, dull hair: castor oil, jojoba, coconut, avocado
