Let me first say, OIL IS NOT A MOISTURIZER. Many times, people mistaken the use of oils in their hair care regimen as a moisturizer. This is wrong. Oil should be used as a sealant, and when coupled with a liquid and moisturizer, it can aid in the retention of moisture in the hair.
Oil can also be used to cure a lot of scalp ailments. For example, dandruff, hair loss, itchiness, and so much more. Click here for some remedies for itchy scalp. It can also be used for a scalp massage to promote hair growth.
In addition, you can use this as pre-shampoo treatment or a hot oil treatment.
CREATING AN OIL MIX
When creating an oil mix, you should always do your research to make sure that oils that you mix together do not conflict with each other. Always start with having a carrier oil such as Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Avocado oil, Grapeseed Oil. Although Extra Virgin Coconut oil is a carrier oil, I do not mix it in our daily oil mix, I use it separately, because it has a tendency of solidifying in colder temperature. After adding your carrier oil, which should be the larger amount than any other oils added, include some essential oils that have purpose. Always create oil mix depending on what is going on with your hair.
