Hair oil treatment has been known for hundreds of years, but it still does not lose its relevance. It is a simple and inexpensive way to nourish our hair and make it shine. What are the different oil treatments? What is the best oil to use? We explain below.

The success of oiling lies primarily in the correct choice of oil. We must match it to our hair type and needs. We distinguish between high, medium and low-poor hair.
Highly refined hair is rough, damaged, dry, brittle and often curly. They need very deep moisturizing. The best choices for such hair are argan, evening primrose, corn, cottonseed, sweet almond and grapeseed oils.
Medium Rough hair is prone to frizz and curls. It is best to use sesame, rapeseed, sunflower, sea buckthorn, hazelnut, or prune seed oils to care for medium-coarse hair. You may also use olive oil.
On the other hand, low-porous hair looks smooth, flowing and even slippery. To oil them, use shea butter, cocoa butter and mango, pomegranate seed, coconut, castor, palm and babassu oils.
You can oil your hair in several ways. Among the most popular are:
Washing your hair is the final step in oil treatment. Oil does not mix with water so it can be difficult to wash out. The best way is to first apply a conditioner or mask. Rinse your hair with warm water and leave it for 15 minutes. Then thoroughly rinse out the conditioner/mask and shampoo. Finish off the treatment by re-applying conditioner or a vinegar rinse.
How often should I use oil treatments? The frequency of treatments should be adjusted to the needs of your hair. Regularity is important.
