10+ Ways To Use Natural Oils

It’s no secret that we love oil. They add so much value to your hair care routine. Here are several easy ways to incorporate oils into your regimen.

Hot Oil Treatment
Place a bottle of oil in a cup of hot water to warm the oil. Apply the warm oil directly to your scalp and cover with a plastic cap. Allow it to soak in for at least 30 minutes. Warming up the oil allows it to be easily absorbed. This process focuses more on the scalp to stimulate growth.

Coat your hair with oil prior to cleansing to allow the healing elements to penetrate your strands.

LOC / LCO method
Try the LOC / LCO method and use the oil as a sealer to lock in moisture. L–leave-in conditioner, O–oils, C–cream.

Apply a thin coat of oil to your strands prior to detangling. Oils add slip to your curls for easier detangling. Using oils will reduce frizz and breakage and will help eliminate single strand knots.

Scalp massages
Apply oil (you can warm to oil for better absorption ) directly to your scalp and massage the oil in for 5 - 10 minutes. This increases blood circulation which will promote hair growth.

Boost your products
Add a few drops to your cleansers, conditioners, and moisturizers to give your products an extra boost.

Heat Protectant
Apply a light coating of oil to your hair before doing a blowout to serve as a heat protectant. This also works if you’re going to be in direct sunlight.

Other Uses
Soften the skin
Remove make-up
Massages with bae
Oil pulling for healthy gums
Whiten the teeth.
Prevent stretch marks.
Soothe diaper rash for the babies
