Your mum told you to do it so it must be right, right?
Now before you all decide to spam our inbox keep reading.
Oil & water don’t mix right? No they don’t and hair is dead keratin right? Yes!
Oil doesn’t absorb into the skin does it? No!
You can’t replace the moisture inside your dead keratin you can only protect it!
Oil coats the hair even after washing it multiple times, later upon layer of build up of that oil and it accelerates the heat created by sun, air, wind, Ac etc. the heat seals the oil on your hair and the heat is increased sucking the last bit of moisture out of your dead keratin hair!
Later upon later of oil ( because your mumma said it’s good) now your hair feels like a Brillo pad and tougher than concrete but super shinny ( from the oil coating )
Your mum is wrong!
If you think that oiling you’re hair is right and makes your hair grow, stand in a bucket of water and absorb the water next time your thirsty!
The temperature is on the rise and as a community announcement we thought we needed to remind you of a few hair care FACTS
It’s true, we all believe what we want to believe but there is fact and fiction.
Here are a few more common things that do more harm than good and you should not do!
Oil on your hair, leaves a film which accelerates heat dehydrating the hair causing damage like split ends, color fading and possible scalp bacteria hence actually could lead to hair loss!
Onion juice, no seriously apart from the smell ( which FYI is disgusting for days! ) doesn’t nothing for your hair, the thought that the juice somehow penetrates into the skin through to to the root of the hair and does anything is beyond realistic!
Rubbing ginger on your scalp, again 🤐 it creates warmth on your scalp which makes you think it’s beneficial but nothing
Fish oil………creates and breeds bacteria and is possibly the most anti social DIY Ever heard of
Egg 🍳- hair outside your scalp is dead keratin. Fry it put it in between two pieces of hair and eat it!
Beer 🍻 the yeast in beer sweeps the cuticle making it appear shinny hence you think it help. Yeast is bacteria, bacteria breeds infection so drink it.
Hope that helps in understanding the facts when it comes to Summer hair care!
Start summer with a trim, remove the split ends, rehydrate using a linseed treatment ( which your hair will love! ) and repeat process every 6-8 weeks.
We are writing this, because everyone who knows hair will tell you it’s wrong, every ones who thinks they know hair will tell you it’s great!
Coconut oil is an oil, oil and water don’t mix right? Right
Hair is dead keratin? Right
If hair is dead and growing hair is inside our body, oil doesn’t soak in does it? No it doesn’t
The hair is made up of three layers? True
Oil residue is left every time you apply oil in the cuticle layer even if you wash it several times? Correct
Putting oil on your hair will make it shinny? True
Putting oil on your hair will
Dehydrate the internal structure
Coat the hair and cause internal moisture to evaporate
Make your hair feel like concrete
Leave your hair limp
Possibly cause hair loss due to change of ph level of your scalp
All the above are facts! So before putting any oil on your hair or head think twice if you want healthy hair. If it’s a condition problem then use alternatives like linseed treatment by Alfa Parf or if your hair is that damaged Olaplex.
