What can oil do to your hair?

Contrary to popular belief, adding the right type of oil treatment to your hair will not leave your hair and scalp looking of feeling oily, but it will nourish and revive damaged/dry/frizzy hair. Instead of appearing “greasy” like most people would assume, applying oil to your hair will instantly add natural gloss and shine.

With the amount of benefits oil has, I’m surprised most people have not give oils a try. Adding oil to your hair up keeping regimen can completely change how your hair looks and feels. So, how do you decide which ones you should apply to your mane? Here are a few options to consider:

The following oils are best suited for the following specific hair types:

  • Oils for Normal Hair: (not dry/greasy):
    • Lavender Oil, Rosemary Oil, Lemon Oil, Geranium Oil, Cedarwood Oil, Thyme Oil, Clary Sage Oil
  • Oils for Oily Hair:
    • Lavender Oil, Rosemary Oil, Lemon Oil, Peppermint Oil, Cypress Oil

A good idea would be to buy a couple of different oils and then see which ones feel the best. Finding the right oil treatment for hair can be game changer. Personally I would highly recommend Jojoba OilMoroccan Oil, and Tea Tree Oil. What oils have you tried or experimented with? Feel free to share below!


  1. I love using olive oil! After leaving it in for at least 30minutes and after a good wash, my scalp feels proper, and my hair as soft as ever!

    • Olive oil is actually the first oil I ever tried. I had already bought it and had it in the kitchen for cooking, so I thought, “hey, what the heck, I might as well give it a shot. It worked great, but the smell is pretty bad and hard to get rid of.

    • I have yet to try coconut oil, how do you like it?
      Is it hard to wash out?

      • I get my Vitamin E oil at Dollar General, it is mostly Vitamin E as well as a mix of Cocunut oil and Soybean Oil, I put it thorguh the end’s of my hair and lightly on the top, especially when I am highlighting ! It work’s great and yes, messaiging it in your root’s will help it to grow, it stimulate’s the scalp ! : )

  2. Most essential oils are so ponett, they cannot be applied directly to the hair and scalp. You will need to mix them with a carrier oil such as olive oil, grapeseed oil, coconut oil, avacodo oil, safflower or sunflower oils. This is only a partial list. There are a lot of sites on the web that can help you find the perfect mix. BTW, the use of essential oils for hair growth is scientifically proven. It really works. I’m living proof!
