The benefits of oiling your scalp

Heard of oiling your hair? Let's take it one step further and look at oiling your scalp! If you reflect on your self-care routine, you may come to the realisation that you've been neglecting your scalp when in fact, if you give it a little extra love - you'll reap the rewards!

There's a variety of scalp and hair oils you can use to suit any budget or lifestyle. When worked into your existing hair routine, it can really elevate the manageability of your hair, ease frizz and often even help with hair growth. 


Depending on the oil you choose, the application method will vary. Some scalp oils are applied as a pre-wash treatment. For this, you would typically apply an hour or so before you plan on washing your hair. Alternatively, if you have a post-wash treatment we recommend you washing your hair as normal with your chosen shampoo and conditioner then following with your scalp oil. 

To apply, the method we find works best is to part the hair and apply the oil directly to your scalp. If you have one with a nozzle top, you'll find this super easy. Otherwise, pour the oil into your hands, warm it between your fingers then massage into the scalp using circular motions.
