hair oil HOW-TO {so you don't get the greasies}


or when used as a leave-in, they give you the silkiest and smoothest locks ever BUT there are a few rules you must follow to get the maximum effect.

Here’s what to ‘do’ and ‘don’t’ – so you’re not left with ‘the greasies’:

1. DO: Use it as a treatment before you wash your hair. Apply a generous amount to hair the night before you shampoo and condition your hair. Make sure to concentrate on the ends and work up to the scalp. You should brush, braid hair, and sleep with the oil in. It’s also very hydrating for the scalp, so for people who have seasonal dry scalp, this will help!

2. DO: Use it as a leave-in treatment after you’ve washed your hair. For a leave-in, apply a 3-5 drops to freshly washed hair and again concentrate on the ends and always apply to them first, for they are the most porous. If you have an oily scalp, don’t apply past the midstrand of your hair.

3. DON’T: Forget to use all natural products.  Just a few drops at the ends of your hair after its dried will get rid of any flyaways and will add the most amazing sheen that isn’t oily to your locks.
