There's something undeniably enchanting about including natural elements into our beauty routines. It's like connecting with the Earth's wisdom and allowing it to pamper us from head to toe. And when it comes to curly hair, oils have been used for centuries for their incredible nourishing, revitalising properties. They are like tiny bottles of botanical love designed to embrace the unique beauty of our curls.
These natural oils are not only gentle and free from harsh chemicals, but they also possess bomb benefits that cater to the special needs of curls. Let’s kick things off with the question on your pretty lips: which oils are good for your hair?
Which oils are good for hair?
Let's get into the world of oils and embrace the wonders of nature, one curl at a time! Here are our favourite oils with hair-nourishing benefits:
- Baobab oil
Extracted from the heart of the Tree of Life's precious fruit, baobab oil is absolutely magic when it comes to conditioning your curls, babe. It's like a gentle whisper from nature, swiftly absorbed by your hair, leaving it softer than a cloud.
This oil is a treasure trove of nutrients that would make any beauty aficionado swoon. Bursting with the dynamic trio of omega fatty acids – the fabulous omega 3, 6, and 9 – baobab oil delivers a power-packed dose of hair-loving goodness. And that's not all. It also flaunts some rare fatty acids and a dazzling array of vitamins, making it a true superstar in the world of hair care. They don't call it the Tree of Life for nothing.
- Coconut oil
So, what about coconut oil? Is coconut oil good for your hair? It’s no secret that this sweet oil is great for sautéing anything from peppers to mushrooms, plus we all know it’s an incredible natural moisturiser for your skin — but did you know it has many benefits for your curls?
Coconut oil is a great natural home remedy for dry hair. This is because it’s a natural emollient, meaning it's a pro at sealing in moisture and preventing those precious curls from drying out. Think of it as a nourishing shield that keeps your strands hydrated, happy, and ready to dazzle.
This blessed oil goes the extra mile by penetrating the hair shaft, working its magic from within. It's a multitasker, tackling frizz with a fierce determination and leaving your curls sleek, defined, and oh-so-smooth. The 01 Shampoo is a genius way to not only keep those curls fresh, but ensure it gets its fair share of coconut oil.
Let's not forget the heavenly scent of coconut oil, babe. It's like a mini-vacay for your senses, transporting you to a paradise of sun, sand, and pure bliss. Not only will your hair look amazing, but it will also smell like a tropical dream. Talk about win-win.
- Jojoba Oil
Next on our list is the heavenly jojoba oil, derived from the seeds of the jojoba shrub. This versatile oil closely resembles our scalp's natural sebum, making it a superstar in regulating oil production and promoting a healthy scalp, which is a must.
- Rosemary seed oil
Rosemary seed oil is like a botanical game-changer for curls. It has potent properties that promote hair growth and stimulate the scalp, allowing your curls to flourish and reach new heights of fabulousness. Its unique composition, packed with antioxidants and nutrients, strengthens hair follicles and helps prevent breakage. So, this means your curls can retain their fullness and vitality!
Plus there are plenty of scalp-loving properties of rosemary seed oil. It has antimicrobial agents that help soothe an irritated scalp, combating dandruff and promoting a healthy scalp environment for your curls to thrive in abundance.
And babe, we can’t overlook the invigorating aroma of rosemary seed oil. Its fresh, herbaceous scent is like a fragrant symphony that awakens your senses and uplifts your spirit! Always a nice bonus.
- Marula oil
Time for one you might not have heard of. Get ready to be swept away by its awesome benefits for your beautiful curls. Marula oil is a lightweight marvel that won't weigh your curls down. It absorbs into your strands, leaving no greasy residue behind. Say cya to that weighed-down feeling and hiya to hair that feels as light as a feather.
Curly hair craves moisture like a desert thirsts for rain, and marula oil delivers one that one. Big time. Bursting with essential fatty acids and antioxidants, this heavenly oil hydrates your curls, quenching their thirst and infusing them with a radiant, healthy glow. It's like a refreshing drink for your hair, leaving it soft and supple. The 06 Oil Serum is a handy way to ensure you get the benefits of not only marula, but also jojoba oil, rosemary seed oil, and baobab oil.
Marula oil is a true powerhouse of nutrients. It is rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that fortify your strands, promoting hair strength and resilience. Say farewell to breakage and hello to a crown of resilient curls that can conquer any style with grace and confidence.
So, how do I use hair oils?
You might be asking yourself this question: How should I use oil in my hair? One of our all-time fave ways to apply hair oil to curls is with a relaxing scalp massage. Using a scalp-friendly oil like rosemary seed oil, these massages can really help to redirect blood flow to the head, which helps promote a healthy scalp and reduce the risk of product build-up.
If you find pure oil is a little too heavy for your hair, opt for a deep conditioning curl mask rich in baobab oil. In a weekly dose, this will give your gorgeous curls the ultimate hydration it needs — without adding any grease.
