Hair Oils for Healthy Hair
All hair needs moisture and with all of the styling techniques that are common today, dry damaged hair has become exceedingly common. The good news is that it is very easy to add moisture to the hair and it doesn’t mean you have to use the heavy oily products from the past.
Good news! There are some great new products on the market that provide excellent moisture and really help to protect the cuticle of the hair. So you might ask, what is the hair cuticle?
The cuticle is the part of the hair that looks like scales on a fish. When the hair is healthy, these “scales” lay down flat and the result is shiny, more manageable hair. But when the cuticle gets damaged, the “scales” can peel up and flake. This causes the hair to look dull and rough.
Using a lightweight oil before and after styling can help to smooth and protect the cuticle. One of my favorites is Palmer's Olive Oil Formula Hair and Scalp Oil. It comes in a convenient spray which is lightweight and easy to use. Remember, all hair needs moisture and one of the best ways to add moisture to your hair is by using a lightweight oil daily.
