Oiling My Hair for the First Time

May told me that oiling will keep long hair soft and healthy. Her hair is very long (waist-length) and so is mine. What I hate about my hair is that the tip gets drier and drier, no matter the length. So I usually do some treatment, etc., but it never seems enough.

Anyway, I decided to oil my hair tonight. We’ll see how it goes. I’ll report the result tomorrow morning after I shampoo my hair.

BTW — I wonder if I should use conditioner after I wash out the oil. My hair tangles very easily. Hmmm.

Update (August 20): I had to shampoo three times. My hair’s finally dry. It’s very soft and silky. Much more manageable than before. I like. I used sesame oil last night. Will try olive oil next.

    I have long, course, rather dry hair and I have used oil, creams and the like and after I wash them out – I use a light weight conditioner sparingly, because my hair tends to tangle or knot if I do not. Not to mention get frizzy!

    Good Luck.

    I am not sure you can get them in Japan – but LUSH has some of the nicest products for dry hair – that I have found.

    I’ve never seen LUSH. I’ll have to ask my friends in the States. My hair doesn’t get frizzy, but I do want to keep it healthy. :)

    FWIW, I like Lush soap, but I don’t like their hair products. It’s just pain to use bar soap in long hair.

    Bar soap in long hair would be impossible…at least for me. :(
