Does anyone even use hair oils anymore?

In an age where beauty trends flicker and fade with every passing season, the question arises: are hair oils still relevant in today's hair care routines? 

Hair oil, an age-old remedy steeped in tradition, has been the cornerstone of hair care routines for centuries. But with the rise of modern hair care products, you might wonder if hair oil still holds its status. We dove into the latest hair care trends and gathered data to determine if hair oils are still relevant. 

Despite many new hair care products flooding the market, hair oil remains a staple. It's not just about tradition; it's about results. Oils like argan, coconut, and almonds continue to be famous for their nourishing properties.

According to our findings, many individuals across age groups—particularly those between 20 and 25—still turn to hair oil as a trusted ally for fighting a range of hair concerns. (UB Insights) 

Serums, leave-in conditioners, and hair masks are gaining popularity, especially for those seeking a less greasy feel. However, these products often serve different functions and may be used along with oils rather than as replacements.

The Do's and Don'ts of Hair Oiling:

Do: Choose the right oil for your hair type. Lighter oils are for fine hair, and denser oils are for thick or curly hair.

Don't: Overapply. Too much oil can weigh hair down and make it look greasy.

Do: Warm the oil slightly before application to increase absorption.

Don't: Ignore your scalp. Massaging oil into the scalp can promote blood circulation and hair growth.

Do: Leave the oil for 1-2 hours before washing. 

Don't: Use oils on dirty hair as this can trap dirt and cause buildup.

How to build a haircare routine? 

Start with a cleansing shampoo, followed by a hydrating conditioner. Incorporate hair oiling once or twice a week for deep nourishment. Supplement with a weekly hair mask and daily leave-in products to protect and maintain hair health.

Surprisingly, the younger demographic shows a higher interest in hair oiling practices, showing an openness to incorporating traditional elements into their routines. (UB Insights)
