What is dry hair oil?

When you first hear about the wonders of dry hair oil,  you may be thinking “that sounds like an oxymoron?”. After all, the first thing that comes to mind when you talk about oil is a wet, slick substance that you assume will leave your hair feeling greasy and weighed down… quite the opposite of what it promises on the bottle!

So what is dry oil and why is everyone raving about this reviving hair moisturiser? The term ‘dry’ hair oil is not actually referring to the hydrating substance itself, but instead it is actually describing how it leaves the hair feeling. When you apply dry oil to your beautiful strands, the oil is instantly absorbed into the follicles, leaving your hair feeling dry to the touch, but moisturised within. This is opposed to ‘wet’ oil which for example is used to massage with. Instead of being absorbed into the skin instantly, it sits on top leaving the skin feeling oily to the touch until it slowly sinks in.

Best hair oil for growth and thickness

Hair is one of the important ways we can express our unique selves and show off our beautiful personalities. However, with stress, age, pollution and build-up of styling products our locks can be left feeling a little lack-lustre. Just as we have a regular skincare routine, our hair needs a bit of regular love too. This is where dry hair oil comes in!

If you incorporated the use of dry hair oil consistently into your hair care ritual, you will be helping to maintain a healthy scalp and roots, fighting dandruff and dryness.

How to use hair oil for dry hair

Our rejuvenating and award-winning dry hair oil ‘Grow Strong’ can be used in a number of different ways, each of them gracing your locks with a dose of hydration and protection. 

  1. Overnight hair mask: If your gorgeous locks are in need of a heavy dose of love and hydration, we recommend using our Grow Strong Dry Hair Oil as a night-time hair mask. Start by gently brushing your strands into parted sections and apply 2-3 drops in each section. Work the dry hair oil into your roots and through to your ends. Simply go about your usual night time ritual and get a restful sleep. When you wake up the next morning, your hair follicles will have deeply absorbed all of the nutrients so that when you wash your hair as normal, your hair will be left feeling deeply nourished and protected. Top Tip: Cover your pillow with a towel to protect your bedding!
  2. Quick hair mask: If you are a little short on time but still want to benefit from the nutrient rich formula of your dry hair oil, you can repeat the process of applying the oil through your scalp and ends just 2 hours before washing. This will still give your hair follicles plenty of time to fully absorb the rare amino acids and rejuvenating actives. Leaving you with hair irresistible to the touch after washing!
  3. Styling oil: One of the reasons our Indian inspired dry hair oil is so well loved is for its versatility! If your strands are looking for a quick and long lasting dose of nourishment before you dash out for the day, apply a few drops to the end of your hair for an anti-frizz treatment that will keep your hair feeling and looking glossy all day long.
