Hair serums or hair oil are used to moisturize and hydrate the hair, as well as smooth and protect it from all your styling tools. Just like our skin, we need oil to have healthy, strong hair. Oil lubricates the outer cuticle and strengthens the inner core by providing moisture to help keep the bonds strong. Applying hair oil is meant to replicate and supplement the natural oils that our bodies make. Applying hair oil can help give your hair a nice, natural shine.
It is especially beneficial if you have dry hair, as the oils coat the hair strands and absorb in for a smoother look. If you have fine hair, you can still use oil, just avoid applying it directly to the roots, as it can weigh the hair down and make it look heavy.
To use hair oil is as a styling product, apply it before blow-drying (or afterwards) to help keep hair smooth and free of flyaways. But be careful, you can apply too much hair oil! Start in the back where your hair is thicker and use whatever is left for the front. Remember, you can always add more if you feel your hair needs it.
Another way to use hair oil is as a moisturizing treatment. Apply before you wash your hair, I generally say 30-60 minutes before, or even if you can put it on before you go to bed and wash out in the morning. The best thing to do is give yourself a scalp massage as you’re rubbing it into your scalp to increase the circulation there. This allows it time to penetrate into the scalp and hair. Then, shampoo and condition as normal and your hair will feel amazing!

To Use: Drop 2-5 drops of oil onto your hand, rub hands together to warm oil and run fingers lightly through the ends of dry or slightly damp hair. To relieve a dry scalp, rub 1/2-1 dropper-full into the scalp and allow it to absorb for a minimum of 30 minutes before washing hair.
