5 nourishing oils that work wonders for the hair

As an Indian kid, when you think about oiling your hair, the first (and probably only) oil that comes to your mind is coconut oil. Amirite? While coconut oil is filled to the brim with hair-loving properties, there are a bunch of other oils out there that can do a world of good to your hair too.

But, you’d be surprised to know not all hair oils are created the same or serve the same purpose. You need to pick one that’s suitable for your hair needs. Here’s a list of hair oils you can try depending on the hair woe you want to address.


Argan oil — for dull, lifeless hair

Vitamin E oil — for damaged tresses

Moroccan argan oil is known as an elixir for all your hair woes, and we couldn’t agree more. Brimming with nutrients like essential fatty acids, Omega 6 and vitamin E, this oil is the answer to dry, frizzy and unmanageable hair. The lightweight texture of this oil doesn’t feel greasy when applied and delivers your hair with a boost of hydration and unmatched shine.


Jojoba oil — for dry and damaged strands

Vitamin E oil — for damaged tresses

Jojoba oil is another top favourite for hair that is dry and damaged. This oil is packed with monosaturated fats, acids and natural alcohol, which helps to penetrate deep into your scalp and solve the problem of dry and damaged strands.


Avocado oil — for hair breakage

Vitamin E oil — for damaged tresses

One of the biggest sources of oleic acid, there are very few natural oils that are as moisturising and conditioning as avocado oil. Regularly massaging your scalp with this oil helps in strengthening the hair shaft to prevent breakage and hair loss.


Almond oil — for hair loss

Vitamin E oil — for damaged tresses

Almond oil is an excellent food for hair that is dry, damaged and lacks bounce. Almond oil is a reservoir of vitamin E, monounsaturated fatty acids, proteins, potassium and zinc, all of which come together to deeply condition your hair from the inside out and give it an instant shine. Regularly using this oil will help to stimulate dormant hair follicles, promote hair growth and make your hair more resilient to external damage.


Vitamin E oil — for damaged tresses

Vitamin E oil — for damaged tresses

Environmental aggressors such as dust, dirt, pollution, stress, sun exposure, etc. end up wreaking havoc on the strands. Therefore, it is really important to replenish your every once in a few weeks with something as wonderful as vitamin E oil. The antioxidant properties of this oil reduce oxidative damage, reduce scalp build-up and stimulate hair growth.
