The Key Step Your Haircare Routine is Missing

Oils are a key step in proper hair care. Here’s all you need to know. Your hair care routine is on point, but are you adding key oils to get the most out of your hair? Adding Oil to your hair care routine is a big secret that salon owners have been using for years to bring a new level of life and shine to their client’s hair. It helps to keep your hair healthy and more easily styled. So, if oil is so vital to our hair’s health, why do we associate it with greasy and dirty hair? And why, oh why do we spend so much time trying to remove it?!


Why our hair needs oil

Why our hair needs oil Our body naturally produces oils to protect our hair from the elements. As a result, it keeps our hair feeling smooth and looking shiny. It is what makes our skin soft and our hair feel nice and smooth. And then...puberty hits. As we get older, our bodies tend to overproduce this luxurious coating, leaving us with skin blemishes and oily (lovingly called “greasy”) hair. Combine this with dirty environments combined with artificially balanced shampoos, and your hair simply won’t look as vibrant as it once did. The less healthy your scalp, the greasier your hair feels. 

As you go through endless hair products, your hair’s cuticles split open and invite dirt, salts, and grease to make themselves at home. The products which promised you rejuvenation have left you worse off than when you started. This is why, in the modern environment of cities, offices, and air conditioning, it is important to properly clean and nourish your hair with a quality shampoo that contains key oils, as well as treat your hair regularly with an oil treatment.
