How to Use Jojoba Oil for Softer and Healthier Hair

Jojoba oil is commonly used with all kinds of health and beauty products, including shampoos, face moisturizers, body lotions, and even makeup removers. When using it on hair, we prefer using it as a carrier oil to gain better absorption into the scalp. To grow healthier and softer hair, we are about to find out its uses beyond being a carrier oil. 

 

What is Jojoba Oil?

Appears in the form of liquid wax, jojoba oil delivers almost all of the vitamins and minerals essential for our skin and hair, - vitamin E, B-complex, zinc, selenium, iodine, and chromium, to name a few. Colorless, odorless, and stable, jojoba oil stays good for years and can seamlessly pair with other beauty products, esp. essential oils. Being the oil whose molecular structure closely resembles human sebum, it is readily taken in by the scalp and maintains the scalp’s natural balance. 

 

How to use jojoba oil on our hair?

Applying jojoba oil regularly will leave our hair healthier, smoother, and more resilient. Its uses vary according to different hair types, textures, and purposes.

Jojoba as a leave-in treatment: Massaging some jojoba oil, separately or mixed with essential oils, into your scalp for about 20-30 minutes to stimulate blood flow. Wash it out afterwards or let it soak in overnight before washing. Leave-in treatment is mostly for healthier scalp that can add volume to thinning hair and encourage hair growth.

Jojoba oil as a carrier oil for shampoo or conditioner: The most popular technique so far to hydrate hair from the inside of the hair follicle! With 98% of monounsaturated fats and 2% saturated fats, jojoba oil prevents hair damage from constant wetting and drying, sealing moisture in hair follicle to strengthen hair fiber. Using jojoba oil as a conditioner can form a thin waxy coating to shield hair from sun damage, dust, and dryness while adding luster, elasticity, and softness.

Jojoba oil as a hair oil after shampooing: Coming in the form of wax ester structured similar to our skin oil, jojoba oil can be used as hair oil after shampooing. Unlike other oils, extended stay on the hair won’t clog pores or irritate our scalp but fill in the cracks of hair cuticle. Deep down, jojoba oil on the scalp keeps the hair follicle healthy and active. Thus it can be used to treat crusted sebum to restore healthy scalp and nourish hair from the root. Being antiseptic, anti-bacterial, and anti-inflammatory, jojoba oil is your helper to obtain a voluminous, shiny, and strong hair.
