Now you have my top 7 amazing oils to try on the market,Ii also wanted to give you very important helpful tips on using these oils as not to be put off.

Ritual of the oil:

  • Place one or two drops (read instructions) evenly into palm rub both palms together, rake it into hair, then comb hair through.
  • Make sure to distribute evenly through your hair.
  • For thicker  hair you will need more oil drops, put the hair into 2 sections, do the front section 1st, then drop some more oil onto your palm and then do the back section, you will find this will help a lot.
  • Apply oil at least 4 to 5 inches away from the scalp if you have long hair.
  • Whilst I have very short hair I too want to enjoy that lovely luxury feeling and smell of oil in my hair , so I really massage that oil into my palms and I gently rake my hair with the oil, then follow with my finishing styling products.

Hope this topic has helped to make oils sold in salons more user friendly , don’t be scared, try some oil on your hair, some oil companies sell minis, try them first so you can be sure before you commit to a large size.
