Oiling Hair – Recommended or Not

Oiling hair is an age old recommendation, but as time went by, the recommendation took a deviation. Today, there are a percentage of hair experts who believe hat oiling is good for hair and there are a percentage of hair experts who believe that oiling is not necessary for hair.

My personal suggestion is that it is alright to use hair oil (trusted companies like Marico have the eternally popular Parachute range of coconut oil which is superb) once in a while, say once every fortnight or once every two-to-three weeks. It is also a suggestion to not leave oil on overnight as this could make the roots of your hair oily or over absorbent. Keep oil on for an hour or two, at most and then wash it off with a good shampoo that is effective. This time, use less conditioner as oil itself acts as a good, conditioning agent and softener. When you use oil, the hair gets greasy, and to remove the oil, you would use extra shampoo and this, at times, can rob your hair of its essential natural oils/secretions.

So, there is a conflict of interests when it comes to whether or not oil is recommended in today’s day and age. For those who want a definitive advice, read the above and indulge in oil sessions, but only once in a way! This way, you will be providing your hair with the needed supplement or nourishment, as one may like to refer to it as, and hair does not get robbed excessively of secretions because oil is applied sparsely as opposed to frequently.
