Anyone addicted to ruining my own brittle, dry hair (I refuse to take down a blow dryer, I can sue), I’m forever curious about something that would calm my split ends and control those wild, broken flyways Can help. Whether it’s a hair mask, bond repair treatment, or overnight cream, you name it and I’ve tried it. And when my hair is familiar with lots of oil, I hear rumors of a miracle oil for brittle hair. Meet jojoba oil. (You know, everyone’s favorite hydrating hair treatment olaplex? It’s rich in jojoba oil.)
I heard about the wonder that jojoba oil can work on the skin, but I needed some more information about using it for hair so I could dip my strands in it. So I finally went back to all of us expert hairstylists, brand founders and legend Guy Tang. Below, he breaks down all you need to know about using jojoba oil in your hair.
Is jojoba oil good for your hair?
Yes! “Jojoba is rich in vitamins and minerals that nourish the hair fibers that help keep hair strong and healthy,” Tang said. So if you are someone who needs a little extra love for her hair, this might be the best thing for her. “It has great moisturizing properties to prevent hair from becoming dry and brittle.”
Who should use jojoba oil?
If your goal is hydrated, beautiful hair, jojoba oil can probably work well for you. “Fragile hair types like curly hair or fine hair will benefit the most from jojoba oil because it will help prevent hair breakage,” Tang said. “These two types of hair are most well known for brushing, heating equipment and breaks from chemical services.” Also, if your hair falls out too much in your routine, it could be a sign that you may be benefiting from the vitamins in jojoba oil.
How should you use jojoba oil in your hair?
While you can of course apply the oil directly to your hair, there are some innovative ways that you can use it without overdoing it. “My favorite way is to add a few drops of pure jojoba oil to the conditioner, apply from the roots to the edges and leave for 10 minutes like a hair mask,” says Tang. “Then rinse well. This procedure will benefit both the hair and the scalp.”
You can also keep an eye on hair products that contain jojoba oil as an ingredient. “I have added jojoba oil to the #MidentityPermanent and Demi-Permanent dyes to improve the condition of the hair and keep it strong during the coloring process.”
