After a long hard day at work, nothing makes me feel better than my mother’s classic hair champi. I’m certain that I’m not the only one who feels much more relaxed and at peace after a head massage with some warm hair oil. Let’s be real, amidst the gazillion haircare products out there, we’ve kinda forgotten how beneficial hair oils are for your precious tresses. That’s exactly why we’re here to give you a quick refresher on the importance of oiling your hair. 

A practice that traces its roots back to centuries ago, hair oiling involves the application of oil to your scalp and to the lengths of your hair in order to improve the health of your hair. Now, you must’ve noticed your mum massaging the oil deeply into your scalp with her fingers. Ever wondered why is it that she does this? Scalp massaging nutrient-rich hair oil ensures that there is ample blood circulation taking place right from the roots of your hair. This is an activity that boosts hair growth and fortifies your locks on a whole new level. Using these ultra-nourishing oils contributes to a variety of benefits depending on which oil you’re opting for.

We’ve rounded up a few hair oils that you should definitely be trying out for your weekend champi sesh.

Plum’s newest launch is their Onion and Bhringraj Hair Growth Oil is packed with a blend of science-driven ingredients and homegrown remedies. Onion as an ingredient has been known to contribute to hair growth and strength. Often, external aggressors cause our hair to become brittle which is an indication of sulfur deficiency. This hair oil combats that and strengthens your hair from its roots and improves hair density by copious amounts too. Also, did you know that it comes with a comb applicator that makes scalp application oh so easy?

We’ve already spoken about argan oil (link prev article here) being a magical ingredient for your hair, almost like liquid gold. The Moroccan Argan Hair Oil from St. Botanica is practically liquid gold in a bottle and we’re gonna tell you why. Unlike most hair oils that tend to have a heavier-than-thou formulation, this one is actually extremely lightweight. If frizzy and lifeless hair is an issue you’ve been dealing with for a while, it’s best to incorporate the usage of argan hair oil in your haircare routine. We promise you that your tresses are going to be feeling so soft and smooth after using this one!

In order to get the formula of a hair oil right, it’s extremely important to have the correct combination of essential oils and carrier oils. The Rosemary & Jojoba Hair Oil from Neemli Naturals is one such hair oil that has the perfect combination if you ask me. An itchy, irritated scalp is definitely something we deal with more often than we’d like. Ingredients like rosemary and jojoba both help in soothing any inflammation on the scalp and get rid of any flakes forming on the scalp. What this does is, also reduces the oiliness on the scalp, leaving it as refreshed as ever.

Just as the name suggests, the Luscious Treatment Hair Oil from Ras Luxury Oils is quite the luscious one fosho. It’s a multi-tasking hair treatment oil which solves every hair concern out there and also ensures prime scalp health. Because of its unique formula that’s created using jatamansi, amla and rosemary oil— this hair oil offers deep conditioning to your hair and provides relief against any and all flakiness. What we love about this hair oil the most is how it can be used as a pre-wash treatment to oil your hair and even as a post-wash one to add some shine to dry hair!

The mother of all hair oils out there has got to be the quintessential OG, coconut hair oil. My fondest memories with my mother are when she was massaging my hair with some coconut oil right before school! Anyone else? Kimirica’s Cold-Pressed and Extra Virgin Coconut oil stands apart from all of the other coconut oils out there because it’s 100% natural and ethically sourced. Organically farmed without the usage of synthetic chemicals and pesticides, it’s a great pick. For a coconut oil, it’s not too greasy but is extremely hydrating and moisturising at the same time. And this little one happens to be a great multi-tasker too! You could use it on your body and your skin too.
