Hair oil. Who uses it? Who thinks they should but doesn’t really know why or how? Adding hair oil to your, or your kids routine, can make a lot of difference. It can make detangling easier, hold in moisture, and also help prevent lice!

Hair Oil – Why You Need to Add it to Your Kids Routine
- Moisture – Hair Oil aides in sealing in moisture. This helps to keep hair healthy and prevent breakage. This is an important step in the LOC/LCO method. Plus moisturized curls are happy curls!
- Detangling – Using hair oil to pre-poo before (co)washing hair makes it easier to detangle. It also helps add some moisture and protect the hair from drying out as much when washed. We personally love Righteous Roots Pre-Poo oil (we use this for the LOC/LCO method too!).
- Lice Prevention – Using a hair oil with tea tree oil / extract in it has been shown to prevent lice. With my son starting school I have started incorporating tea tree hair oil in our wash day and refresh routines. (DISCLAIMER – some oils must be mixed with a carrier oil. I am not an oil expert but please make sure to only use oil that is meant to be put on hair/skin. Otherwise you could cause burns and /or other issues.)
- Hair Growth – We personally incorporate this step in our pre-poo step, but a lot of people swear by daily head massages with hair oil to encourage hair growth. Plus – it just feels good! (That’s why I do it on my daughter after having her hair in a protective style for the week)
There are more positives to adding hair oil to yours, or your kids, routine I’m sure but these are the top ones that keep me making sure its a priority. What are some reasons you have added hair oil? Anything stopping you from doing so? If not go buy some!
