Oil for hair: Natural care for Afro hair

Oil is probably one of the oldest hair care products known to mankind. Natural plant oils have numerous benefits. They make dry and brittle hair supple again and ensure that moisture remains in the hair. In principle, you can use most plant oils for hair care, but there are big differences.

Some oils are particularly good for hair because they do not weigh it down or make it look greasy. Moringa oil is one of the most interesting natural hair care products. It also supplies the hair and scalp with valuable vitamins and antioxidants.

In this guide, you will learn which oil is best for your hair , what benefits Moringa oil in particular offers for hair and how to use hair oil correctly on Afro hair.

Why does my hair need oil at all?

Our scalp naturally produces oil to care for and protect the hair. The longer the hair, the less of this natural oil reaches the ends. Afro hair is particularly prone to dryness. This is due, among other things, to its special structure; curly and frizzy hair has a more open cuticle layer and moisture can evaporate more quickly.

Oil is perfect for caring for frizzy and curly hair. It forms a protective layer over each individual hair and prevents it from drying out. Irritated scalps also benefit from an oil treatment, especially if it contains anti-inflammatory substances such as moringa oil.

Which oil is best for hair?

Which oil is good for hair? There are various vegetable oils that are excellent for hair care. Here are some of the best oils for hair and their specific benefits:

  1. Coconut oil : Coconut oil is rich in valuable fatty acids and has moisturizing properties. It penetrates deep into the hair structure and helps to strengthen the hair from within. Coconut oil is particularly good for dry and damaged hair. Coconut oil has a pleasant scent and makes your Afro hair look well-groomed but not greasy.
  2. Jojoba oil : The valuable jojoba oil is similar to the natural sebum of the scalp and is therefore particularly well tolerated. It moisturizes without making the hair greasy and improves the combability of curly and frizzy hair. Jojoba oil also contains valuable fatty acids that can have an anti-inflammatory effect and is therefore also recommended for scalp care. Jojoba oil also has natural UV protection.
  3. Argan oil : Argan oil is one of the dry oils because it is particularly rich in unsaturated fatty acids. This has the advantage that it is less viscous and more fluid. This makes it feel light and absorbs quickly.
  4. Moringa oil for hair: Moringa oil is a true superfood for hair. It is rich in vitamins, minerals and fatty acids that intensively nourish and strengthen hair. The effect of moringa on hair is particularly remarkable as it promotes hair growth while soothing the scalp. So let's take a closer look at this phenomenal oil.

Moringa effect on hair: Superfood for your curls

Moringa oil is extracted from the seeds of the moringa tree, also known as the "miracle tree". This oil is particularly rich in nutrients that intensively nourish both the hair and the scalp.

Benefits of Moringa Oil for Hair

Moringa oil acts as a protective layer over each individual hair, preventing the moisture contained in the hair from evaporating. This is particularly important for dry and damaged hair.

The vitamins and minerals contained in moringa oil strengthen the hair from the inside out and make it more resistant to damage, for example from styling or environmental influences.

Moringa oil contains zinc and iron, which can stimulate hair growth and reduce hair loss. This is why moringa is often used as a treatment on the scalp to stimulate hair growth.

The smoothing properties of moringa oil make hair smoother and easier to comb.

Moringa oil forms a protective layer around each hair that protects against harmful environmental influences such as UV rays or heat during styling.

Moringa oil contains a particularly high amount of antioxidants that have an anti-inflammatory effect. The oil is therefore one of the best natural remedies for irritated or inflamed scalp.
