summerfield 336672 640When we talk about oiling your hair, it actually refers to massaging your scalp and applying oil along the length of your hair. Both of these actions have their own benefits – scalp massage strengthens the roots and stimulates growth while oiling the hair shaft offers protection. Here is a more detailed look at the benefits of including oil in your summer hair care routine.

  • Coating your hair with a layer of oil keeps it nourished and moisturized, preventing the dreaded summer dryness
  • As you massage your scalp, you stimulate the hair follicles and encourage further growth
  • Oiling helps to prevent breakage – the massage strengthens the roots while oiling the hair shafts keeps them from becoming brittle
  • All that sweating can cause that annoying itching we all know so well, but regular oil massages can prevent this by softening the scalp and preventing dryness
  • For most of us with curly or wavy hair, frizz is our number one enemy during summers. Oiling the hair helps us control this to a great extent
  • If you swim in a pool laden with chlorine or sea water, the oil on your hair gives you an extra layer of protection, especially if you have treated or colored hair

Of course, there is another benefit – oil massages are incredibly relaxing too! You may find chemical products that offer the benefits listed above, but let’s face it – no cocktail of chemicals cooked up in a lab can match the penetration of pure, natural oils. However, you need to ensure that you’re using the right kind of oil – one that’s suited to your hair and the weather. And well, it promotes healthy hair.

Summer Hair Care Tips

Summer Hair Care

Coconut Oil

When you consider oils for summer hair care, you absolutely cannot do without the king of oils – coconut oil! With its huge range of health benefits, this is the first choice for most people trying to infuse new life into their tired tresses. Coconut oil has sun protection benefits and has excellent penetration. Nearly every recipe of Ayurvedic oil for hair growth includes coconut oil among its ingredients. Have you seen our collection of hair oils that are suitable for almost all hair types?

Avocado Oil

Avocado oil is another oil with SPF, and its light and smooth nature makes it perfect for hot weather. Just as avocadoes are great for your health, the nutritionally dense avocado oil also provides deep conditioning nourishment for your hair.

Jojoba Oil

If the thought of heavy, greasy locks is weighing you down, then Jojoba oil is what you need. This oil is easily absorbed into the scalp and hair, freeing you from any greasiness or stickiness. And it’s not just that; jojoba oil is also packed with Vitamin E, antioxidants and healthy fatty acids.

Almond Oil

Almond oil is probably the best hair oil for men, considering it’s the best in the battle against baldness! Almond oil is rich in Vitamin E and has been shown to promote hair growth. It also acts as a cleanser, cleaning the hair of dirt and dust.

Olive Oil

Olive oil is another common oil that is not just great on your salad, but on your hair as well! Being a light oil, this is perfect for muggy weather. It goes deep into the hair shaft and as a result, you get some high quality conditioning and nourishment!

Argan Oil

This is a Moroccan oil that has recently become real popular with everyone. This is your ideal frizz fighter for humid summer days, when everything else fails. It is so light you can use it like a leave-in serum and its high Vitamin E content offers extra nutrition for your hair.

What else?

Summer Hair Care

Besides these, essential oils like rosemary and lavender can also increase hair growth and nourish the scalp. Just mix in a few drops into your regular oil for sweet summer hair care.

Deep condition

The best summer hair treatment is a weekly deep conditioning routine. You can try any of these – coconut oil with castor oil, coconut oil with honey, olive oil and fresh aloe vera paste with any oil. Slightly warm oils spread more easily. Just apply, cover with a shower cap or hot towel for 30 minutes and wash off!

Use hair masks

If you have more time experiment with a hair mask that provides the nourishments to the tresses as well. Apply the hair mask and let it stay for a while to let your hair soak in all the nutrients from the mask. Wash off the mask with plain water and follow up with a shampoo and conditioner to lock in the moisture.
