All the Different Types and Benefits of Hair Oils in Malaysia

One would say that hair is a woman’s (or man’s) crown so it’s important that we take proper care of it. Due to pollution, heat exposure, sweat, and other factors, your hair can be easily damaged, brittle, and faded. With the addition of hair oil into your hair care routine, you can reverse the damage and really nourish your hair back to health.

The Most Popular Hair Oils

These are the most popular hair oils available in the market today. They’re easily accessible, either raw or as a main ingredient in a hair product, and are relatively affordable. Here are the 5 best hair oils that are abundant in beneficial nutrients.

  • Coconut Oil - contains plenty of lauric acids that can penetrate the hair shaft and repair the damages.
  • Argan Oil - originated from a tree in Morocco, it has fatty acids that can deeply moisturize the hair.
  • Olive Oil - similar properties as coconut oil, high in monounsaturated fats that can strengthen the hair.
  • Jojoba Oil - this type of oil is extracted from the seeds of the jojoba plant and is high in fatty acids as well as liquid wax.
  • Avocado Oil - has plenty of vitamin E which is an essential antioxidant to help fight hair loss.

Best Hair Oils for Your Hair Types

Straight, Flat Hair

For people with this type of hair, lack of volume is your biggest enemy. Introduce argan oil into your hair care routine so it can grow healthy and voluminous. Argan oil won’t leave an oily feeling after application and it won’t weigh down your hair. One of the best argan oil product is Moroccanoil Treatment.

Dry, Coarse, and Damaged hair

When you think nothing else can save your dry and damaged hair, try using coconut oil that can repair your hair from within the shaft. You may not want to use coconut oil as a leave-in treatment as it can weigh down your hair. Instead, use it as a hair mask before or during washing. You can easily grab a coconut oil from the grocery store and begin this DIY hair mask treatment. We recommend brands like SheaMoisture and Majestic Pure.

Frizzy Hair

Living in a humid country like Malaysia can sometimes be a nightmare for people with frizzy hair. To tame your mane, try adding argan oil or jojoba oil that is high in fatty acids. The essential fatty acids will deeply moisturize the hair, prevent flyaways, and protect the hair from becoming frizzy again. We recommend the Frizz Finish Serum from L’Oreal for best results.
