Following the launch of our trio of hair treatments and styling products, we’ve decided to dive deeper into the benefits of hair oil - increase moisture, lustre, shine, protection and strength - examining our Frizz Tamer Smoothing Oil. Formulated with a plant-based, vegan and cruelty-free formula with natural ingredients like Argan and Brazil Nut, we’ll demonstrate how, in combination with our Conscious Haircare, you can introduce hair treatment oil into your hair care routine - no matter your hair type, even if you have oily hair!
What is hair oil?
A centuries-old Indian practice derived from Ayurvedic medicine, hair oil is a collective term for various hair treatment oils intended to improve your hair's condition. The main benefits of hair oil are hair growth, protection from heat and heat styling tools, improved hydration, reduced dryness and increased hair strength.
Even if your hair is on the oily side, it will benefit from the added hydration and protection hair oils bring. To use hair oil on oily hair, just make sure you add the hair oil from the mid-section to the ends of your hair rather than starting from the scalp. If you have an oily hair type, your scalp is already producing enough natural oils to keep your roots from drying out and causing more problems.
With the help of our Frizz Tamer Smoothing Oil, you can reduce split-end formations and strengthen your hair's defences against damage caused by styling appliances like straighteners, curling irons, and blow dryers. No matter how frizzy your hair is, our Smoothing Oil will control it since it can shield your hair from heat up to 230 degrees Celsius (that's how hot styling tools get). With our specially formulated hair oil for frizzy hair, even keratin-straightened flyaways won’t stand a chance.
But curly girls shouldn’t worry about being left out of all the hair oil fun. While we have not been officially curly girl-approved, many customers have shared their fantastic feedback on our social media pages and the wonders our conscious haircare products do for their curls.
What are the best hydrating hair oils?
Our hair products are made with Australian ingredients as often as possible. When Australian produce can’t be sourced due to climate or supply, we turn to other countries where we can ensure the ingredients are of the best possible quality. Various modern and conventional hair oils are made from mineral and vegetable oils, with the most common including Argan Oil, Coconut Oil, Avocado Oil and Brazil Nut Oil. Our Frizz Tamer Smoothing Oil is the perfect hair oil for frizzy hair, made with Argan Oil and Brazil Nut Oil.
Argan Oil Benefits
More commonly known as Moroccan Oil, Argan Oil is rich in antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamins A, C, and E. Argan oil for hair strengthens the follicles and serves as a natural conditioner.
Brazil Nut Oil Benefits
Brazil nut oil readily absorbs into the skin and scalp because of its high affinity for human sebum, thanks to its selenium content, a vital mineral for healthy hair. It is a significant source of phytosterols, vitamin E, squalene, and unsaturated fatty acids, all of which are good for the skin and hair. In a nutshell, brazil nut oil for hair moisturises, guards, and imparts a lovely glow.
Pro tip: Avoid hair oils made with Palm Oil!
Although several of the ingredients in our products are derived from sustainable palm oil (so we are not relying on any petrochemicals and animal-derived ingredients), we never utilise palm oil directly in any of our products. As a responsible company founded on caring for the environment, reducing plastic consumption and avoiding animal cruelty, we have a strict palm oil policy. Please visit our company website for our Palm Oil commitment statement.
How to apply hair oil
No matter your hair type, here’s how to apply hair oil for the best results:
- Pump a modest amount of hair oil into your palm.
- Go through your hair with your hands from the middle to the end.
- Use your fingertips to massage your scalp with oil in a circular motion (skip this step if your scalp is naturally on the oily side)
- Make sure you use up all the oil in your hands.
- Leave hair oil overnight, and cover with a towel or shower cap.
- Once dry, use My Soda Smooth Shampoo. Rinse thoroughly.
- Condition regularly with My Soda Smooth Conditioner.
Oh, and you can use our hair oil on dry and wet hair!
