3 Top Natural Oils Which Penetrate Your Hair Strands | For Healthier Hair Care

Natural oils are one of the best gifts from nature, therefore it is no surprise that they are used more and more to enhance many hair and body products today. One thing that natural oils are especially good for is promoting the health of all hair but especially dry hair. In this post, I share three top oils which have been found to be more helpful in enhancing healthy hair, promoting hair growth and moisturising hair and skin.

Natural Oils
There are a good number of natural oils with a lot of good properties and benefits. Some oils are great as sealants, which means that they coat the hair strands in order to lock moisture in and increase shine. Others are good moisturisers as they penetrate the hair strands and increase moisture and elasticity.

Why The Hair Benefits From Penetrating Oils
Oils which are able to seep into the hair are great to use as a pre-shampoo treatment as well as deep conditioners. Using these types of oils as a treatment before a shampoo step could control cuticle expansion and the amount of water that the hair soaks up.

During a hair wash, hygral fatigue occurs. This is just a 'fancy' phrase for when hair strands swell up from water, causing the cuticles of the hair to lift and lower when letting water in and out. Happening a few times, this can cause splits and damage eventually when drying the hair. 

As explained in this previous post about the hair structure, hair has natural oils as part of its makeup. Though these oils help moisturise the hair naturally, some people may lack it while others may have too much of it. This is part of what causes dry hair and greasy hair problems. A penetrative oil enhances the condition of dry hair especially in curlier, coilier and kinky hair types such as 4c.

The following three oils are part of the few which have been found to have molecules small enough to actually penetrate the hair shaft and skin. Saving the best for the last, lets begin with:

Avocado Oil
Rich in vitamins, avocado oil also has a very high penetration ability for skin and hair. Therefore it is great for scalp and hair use for healthy hair growth. It can also be mixed with your favourite essential oils or other penetrative oils for added benefit. Try using it as a pre-shampoo treatment, in your deep conditioner or to moisturise your hair.

Olive Oil
Olive oil may also penetrate and moisturise hair strands. It has been used in ancient times as an antimicrobial treatment agent and for cleansing. Use this oil in your deep conditioner treatment, as a pre-shampoo treatment and as a hair sealant.  Get 1Litre Here or 500ml Here.

Coconut Oil
Saving the best for the last, this is the most known for its penetrative, moisturising and sealing properties. Whip coconut oil to make a coconut oil butter, or mix it with other good oils, like I did in this previous post to make a home made hair and body butter. Coconut oil is the best oil known to be readily absorbed into the skin and hair. Used in ancient times to groom hair, prevent hair loss and damage, it is also excellent as a hair conditioner, to control dandruff, for hair styling and for dry hair treatment. It works very well in preventing split ends and restoring moisture back to the oldest parts of our hair, our ends. It also strengthens the hair by decreasing protein loss.

If your hair is already prone to producing to too much oil, you can still pass a tiny amount of these oils through it to add some slip and sheen. However if your hair is dry or prone to dryness, well these oils are holy grail! As long as you are not allergic to any.
