A Guide to Our Hair Growth Oil/Pre-Shampoo Scalp Treatment

Our Hair Growth Oil/Pre-Shampoo Scalp Treatment is a versatile, clean formula suitable for all hair types. It hydrates your scalp, nurtures the follicular ecosystem, and enhances hair manageability. This natural formulation was thoughtfully designed to provide immediate moisture and nourishment to your scalp and hair, improve the scalp microbiome, foster a balanced follicular ecosystem, and help with hair manageability. If your goal is to achieve healthier, more voluminous hair, our Hair Growth Oil is the perfect choice.

Before going over the application process, it is important to understand your hair’s porosity and its role in how you can correctly implement oils into your hair care.   

Understanding Your Hair's Porosity for Effective Hair Growth Oil Application

In the context of hair, porosity is determined by the hair cuticle's structure, the outermost layer of an individual hair strand. Low porosity hair has a tightly bound cuticle layer, making it resistant to moisture penetration and challenging for moisture to escape, leading to slow drying and potential product buildup. High porosity hair has openings in the cuticle layer, allowing moisture to pass in and out easily, resulting in quick drying, frizz, and a tendency to feel dry.

Our Hair Growth Oil/Pre-Shampoo Scalp Treatment includes ingredients like jojoba and castor oil which makes it the perfect oil for any hair type or porosity level. To enhance the benefits, it also features rosemary oil. If you have lower porosity, apply less hair oil and if you have higher porosity, you can use a larger amount of hair oil. 

Depending on what your goal is with the oil, you should keep its penetration ability in mind. Applying too much oil directly onto the scalp could potentially reduce the amount of natural oil production within the follicle so it is important to determine your hair’s porosity to know exactly how much oil your hair needs.

The Float Test 

To determine your hair's porosity, you can perform this simple test at home. The Float Test involves placing clean hair strands in a glass of water; if they float, it's likely low porosity, while sinking indicates high porosity. If the hair strands float in the middle of the glass, it suggests medium porosity hair. These tests provide insights into your hair's porosity level, although they may not yield exact results.

How to Use Our Hair Growth Oil/Pre-Shampoo Scalp Treatment 

Our Hair Growth Oil can be used in a variety of different ways. For maximum results our hair growth oil should be used 2-3 times a week.

Pre-Shampoo Scalp Treatment

When using it as a pre-shampoo scalp treatment, be sure to apply the oil on dry hair from your scalp down to the ends, including your hairline—a commonly overlooked area for hair oil application. Caring for your hairline is equally important as tending to your scalp and split ends. To achieve a fuller hairline, do not forget to give that area of your scalp some love. 

After applying the Hair Growth Oil to your hair, gently massage it into your scalp for 3-5 minutes to ensure even distribution. Then allow it to sit for 2 hours before washing your hair. If you choose to use it as an overnight treatment, rinse it off in the morning for deeper hydration and improved results.  

Post-Shower Application

For post-shower application, we recommend just applying the oil to your ends using only half a pump to a pump of oil. Gently massage the oil into your hands and then onto your ends when your hair is damp. This method of application will reduce frizz and enhance the natural and beautiful shine of your hair.

There is great significance in understanding your hair type and porosity levels when choosing the right hair oil for your needs. If you're ready to enjoy the benefits of natural hair oils, it's time to transition from your conventional hair care regimen to our Hair Growth Oil/Pre-Shampoo Scalp Treatment at Oil Divine.
