4 Simple and Effective Tips for Using Oils on Fine Hair Types

How to make it work for you!

Not everyone can accept the fact that certain products or hair care trends aren’t for them. It’s hard to see others benefit from a hair product and you are missing out in the action. Some women can’t seem to take no for an answer and that’s totally ok. With a bit of trial and error, you’ll know what works for you and what doesn’t. Take oils on fine hair for example. Oils can leave fine hair limp and weighed-down, but there is a way someone with fine hair types can benefit from using oil on their hair.

If you’re in knowing how to use oil on your fine hair type. Read on to see how you can implement this popular hair product into your hair care or styling routine:

oils on fine hair: hair application
Add a small amount, or coat hair with a generous amount of oil before washing. Rinse well with a shampoo to remove excess oil.

1. Use a pre-wash treatment.

Since you may not prefer to use an oil on your hair after washing, you can certainly use it before shampooing. Love Beauty and Planet Hope and Repair Coconut Oil & Ylang Ylang 3-In-1 Benefit Oil is formulated to use on hair before washing. Adding a few pumps of this oil will help prevent split ends and damage. If you think about it this way, detangling super dry hair before washing can wreak havoc on your strands and cause breakage and split ends. Coat your hair with the oil first to prevent any damage.

2. Use oil to add shine.

Don’t have a shine spray on hand? Use a small amount of a lightweight oil to finish your hairstyle and add shine. One of our go-to lightweight oils for this purpose is argan oil. One drop goes a very long way. After applying, finger comb it through to spread it throughout your hair.

3. Supercharge your hair mask.

Oils can be used to create a more intense and super effective deep conditioning session. We only recommend this if you feel your hair is in need of it. How can you tell? If you’re suffering from seasonal dry hair, an oil like coconut oil, which has the ability to penetrate your strands, can moisturize your strands from within. Be sure to rinse well with a shampoo if needed.
