This layer can be broken down as a result of swimming in chlorinated water, living in a dry climate, chemical straightening or perming, or using hot styling products. When the hair breaks down, it will feel dry and look dull.

In essence, oils do not moisturize Hair. That’s why you should never put oil on dried out hair.  What oils do is a trap in moisture. Here are the best oils to remedy dry and dull-looking hair 

Coconut oil 

Coconut oil naturally conditions dry haïr caused by protein loss. Since it contains lauric acid it is able to penetrate the hair shaft, nourishing the hair with vitamins, minerals and fatty acids.

Avocado Oil

Avocado oil is an edible oil extracted from the pulp of avocadoes. Using avocado oil on your hair can moisturize, repair, and strengthen your hair. The minerals in avocado oil can help seal cuticle cells, which can prevent your hair from breaking.

Carrier oils like castor oil, argan oil and jojoba oil.

Argan oil is very moisturizing since it contains vitamin E and fatty acids. Castor oil is also very thick and viscous which makes it useful in locking in moisture.

Jojoba oil is also great for dry hair because it is easily absorbed. It also doesn’t clog pores and is perfect for sealing moisture. 

Try these oils and watch your hair flourish. 

Have a great hair day!!
