We all know how beneficial those weekly oil massages can be. You let the oil seep into your scalp, leave it on for a couple of hours, and wash it away for soft, lush hair. We've been there, done that.
Frequent oil massages have always been considered remedial for an infinite number of hair problems. Natural oils nourish your roots and stimulate hair growth. They’re often problem-focused, offering immense benefits from the get-go, apart from the obvious: relaxation, care, and comfort.
However, there are several concerns our customers had around those weekly oil massages. We’re answering a few common questions we get about hair fall, hair oils, and the benefits of regularly massaging your scalp with natural oil.
Does A Hair Growth Oil Really Work?
Yes, hair growth oils do work. The effects depend, of course, on the type of hair oil you apply. It’s always important to determine whether the oil suits your scalp. Choose your oil carefully, so that it really does help you out with whatever your hair issue is, be it hair fall, frizziness or textural problems.
Every hair oil works differently and the ingredients generally tend to vary. The way you apply oil can also make a big difference to the health of your scalp. We always recommend opting for natural, cold-pressed, and organic hair oils for long-lasting results.
Why Does Hair Fall Even After Oiling Your Scalp?
This is a really common concern. There could be several reasons for this. First, it could be the fact that you’re overdoing the oiling. A rigorous daily massage, followed by frequent shampooing, can aggravate hair fall. Moreover, if you’re leaving the oil in for too many hours, it accumulates dirt and dust particles, increasing your hair fall visibly.
Secondly, it could be because your hair follicles are slightly weak. This could be a hormonal issue or related to the balance of vitamins in your body. Most often, vitamin deficiencies lead to hair fall, so check your vitamins before you get into any hair fall-related routine. Your diet plays a huge role in the health of your hair (and body), too, so check in regarding the vegetables, greens, proteins, and healthy carbs of your daily diet. If you’re doing everything right, we’d say give your scalp some time. These issues can be seasonal, too, so patience is key to strong, healthy hair.
Of course, we have to remember to eat healthy foods, packed with fatty acids and rich proteins. A good dose of protein daily pumps your hair growth and is absolutely vital to the health of your hair. Yoghurt, salmon, eggs, and dry fruits should be a part of your daily diet.
Keep in mind that you shouldn’t overuse any oil or hair care products. Applying an excessive amount of oil really doesn’t yield any benefits. Most often, it does the opposite: it strips your scalp of the naturally nourishing oils produced by your follicles.
When you shampoo your hair, make sure you’re using a mild natural shampoo with luke-warm to cold water.
Is Overnight Oiling Good For Hair?
It really depends. If the oil is too dense or heavy for your scalp, you’ll wake up with greasy, sticky hair and no extra benefits. Moreover, keeping the oil in for too long just collects dust and dirt particles on your scalp.
If the oil is light and nourishing at the same time, you can leave it overnight. It’s crucial to keep the oil on for a while, so check out the natural density and oiliness of your scalp before choosing something super heavy.
Which Is The Best Oil For Hair Growth And Thickness?
Natural hair oils work best for hair growth. The nutritious ingredients they often contain give your hair the volume, thickness, and shine. A good natural oil can be like incredible food for your hair!
Thin hair can be a result of multiple factors, like ageing, poor nutrition, an excessive use of chemical substances, stress, and so forth. So first and foremost, keep your mind and body healthy to keep your hair and skin healthy.
The Arata Nourishing Hempocado Oil is a cold-pressed vegan hair oil designed to deal with hair fall, stimulate hair growth, and boost the circulation of your scalp. It contains two super-power ingredients: hempseed oil and avocado oil. These incredible natural ingredients work wonders for a range of problems, spanning all genders and hair types.
The oil combines the benefits of hempseed and avocado oil to give you the best of both worlds. While avocado reduces damage and dryness, hempseed nourishes and strengthens your locks. This unique blend is only provided by Arata.
Both the ingredients contain vitamins, minerals and fatty acids, which moisturize and condition your hair. Apply the oil for about half an hour or more, and cleanse your hair with a gentle shampoo. The best part is that the oil is super light. It washes out really easily, and it smells absolutely great. The oil really does soften your hair and protect it naturally as well. Unlike chemical-based treatments, this works WITH rather than AGAINST your natural oils.
