If you have curly hair or a sensitive scalp, use oil as a pre-shampoo treatment. Massage the oil into dry hair before you get in the shower. It will keep the shampoo from over-drying your scalp (which causes dryness and itchiness) and stripping the natural oil from your hair (which can make your hair dry and frizzy). For especially dry hair, you can do this at night, sleep with the oil in, and wash it out in the morning.
-Applying oil to damp hair before drying can help keep it healthy and shiny. It’s especially good for hair that’s dry or damaged (like from coloring). Work a few drops through towel-dried hair and then comb through with a wide-toothed comb to make sure it’s distributed evenly.
-If you have curly or textured hair that’s prone to frizz, use a little bit of oil once it’s dry to smooth it out and seal in moisture. Put a few drops in your hands and work it completely through your hair, paying special attention to the ends which tend to get dry faster.
-It is possible to apply too much hair oil, so start with a little bit and work your way up. If you put in too much, the only thing you can do to fix it is to get back in the shower.
-Using an oil on facial hair is the same theory as on the top of your head. It hydrates and smoothes the hair follicles and keeps them healthy. Apply it to your beard the same way you do your hair.
OILS FOR YOUR BODY
-Body oil can give you deep hydration without the sticky, greasy feeling of lotion. Apply it on towel dried skin, when it’s still a little damp, directly after the shower.
-Use oil on specific dry spots on your body like feet, elbows, and knees that are especially prone to dryness.
-It can be applied any time, but for extra deep hydration, use it at night.
