When the hair feels frizzy and the ends are dry, the rescue is hair oil. It works like nourishing, moisturizing magic for hair – but there are a few mistakes that many people make. We list them below – and how you should do it instead.
The range is large so the important thing is to choose the right hair oil for the right hair type. How you apply the oil also plays a big role. Treat your dry hair to some nourishment and enjoy fast results – below we mention three common mistakes that many people make with hair oil as listed by Bangerhead, as well as our twelve favorites that give love to your hair.
1. Using too much
Hair oil is mainly used to add shine and ease styling, which means that only a little of it is needed. Bangerhead advises to start with a very small amount and then add more if needed.
2. Choosing the wrong color
As we have written about before so hair oil can actually affect the color of your hair. If your hair is light or bleached, it can pick up unwanted golden or red color particles and thus make your hair look more yellow – then it’s important to use a transparent hair oil instead.

3. Applying it the wrong way
Hair oil should not be all over your hair, but is best suited to the ends, otherwise the risk of your hair looking greasy increases. To apply it in the best way, you take a few drops in the palm of your hand, rub it between your hands and gently pull through the tops so that the oil is evenly distributed up to ear level.
