      What is Oil Rinsing and Is this better for Natural Hair types?

      My hair had been really dry and since I had run out of my deep conditioner, I think my hair was having withdrawals. Well, I stumbled upon a blog where a woman was talking about oil rinsing and how it had given her hair shine and moisture. She showed before and after pics of her hair in a bun and the difference was amazing!!!

      Oil rinsing is a step taken in caring for your natural hair. Some compare it to doing a hot oil treatment in the shower. It is a step between washing and conditioning in which you rinse your hair with oil.

      Why include oil rinsing in your haircare routine:

      • It makes detangling easier.
      • It smooths and softens the hair
      • It adds shine to the hair.
      • It helps the hair retain moisture.
      • It eliminates frizz.

      Here are to methods for natural hair oil rinsing.

      Oil Rinsing after shampoos and before conditioning

      1. Wash or Rinse your hair
      2. Apply your oil of choice from the root to the tip of your hair
      3. Rinse hair
      4. Apply conditioner
      5. Finally, finish up using your normal hair wash routine

      Although I recommend that you use your oil of choice, I want to point out there are essentially three oils known that are capable of penetrating the hair shaft. They are olive oil, coconut oil, and avocado oil. Personally, my favorite oil for rinsing my hair is olive oil. It is thick, it goes on easy and I like the smell.  Another oil that I love is Keravada SuperEgo. It is an herbal oil that is designed to reduce hair breakage and promote hair growth. However, I suggest you experiment with different oils to determine the best oil for rinsing your hair.

      Rather than rinsing after the shampoo and before the conditioning, you can also do an oil rinse before you add your leave-in conditioner.

      Oil Rinsing after conditioning and before leave-in conditioner

      1. Apply conditioner to hair
      2. Rinse hair
      3. Apply your oil of choice to hair. 
      4. Rinsed about 50% of the oil out. 
      5. Apply leave-in conditioner
      6. Finally, finish up using your normal hair wash routine

      A word of caution when using either of these techniques; you may need to shampoo your hair more often to prevent your hair from being oily and weighed down.

      Try both methods and let me know which one works for you!!
