A few Reasons You Should Add Oil Rinsing To Your Wash Day Routine

hqdefault

Have you ever heard about Oil Rinsing? Well it is quite interesting, so interesting that we have talked about it on the blog a couple of times in the past. Oil Rinsing is an additional process that you would do on wash day when washing your hair.

The process is simple, after shampooing your hair, you would add oil to all sections of your hair and let it marinate for just a bit. Rinse the oil out with your shower stream, then condition and deep condition as normal.

If you want to try this method, you can apply your conditioner on top of the oil and rinse both out together (I prefer this way). You can also let the oil sit on your hair for as long as you want before washing it out. It is literally up to you and what your hair needs.

Oil Rinsing is supposed to lessen single strand knots, help your hair to retain moisture, give you smoother, softer hair, give you shinier hair, and make detangling much easier.

Let’s talk about the oil

Castor Oil is a great oil you can use for oil rinsing. Others include: Olive, Coconut, Avocado, Grapeseed, and Jojoba Oil (if you prefer something a bit lighter). For fine hair, light oils are perfect, if your hair is coarse Castor Oil might just be your ace.


The video below, lets you in on a YouTuber’s thoughts and experiences with Oil Rinsing. She gives you honest feedback and observations before and after her oil rinsing experience. She did mention that her curls were popping way more than usual after oil rinsing, check it out:

African Export from YouTube claims that Oil Rinsing has made her (and her daughter’s hair) dramatically soft! She says it really has helped with dry hair. Check out her video below:

My last hot oil treatment did not work for me so this slightly different method may be just what I need.

Mocha B Williams

I hate that herbal oil crap

Joyce P Grandison-Spencer

My new hair dreser uses oil rinsing and it works wounders

Tamera Anderson

I may try next time, but that herbal oil i hate and weighs my hair down even with a little bit of it. Avacado i shall try or grapeseed!

Nisha Coles

I don’t see how this could be helpful… Why rinse it out? What’s the diff between this and a hot oil treatment?

I will try oil rinsing. I really like pre pooing and hot oil treatment. My tresses respond well to coconut oil and castor oil. But I don’t like the herbal oil stuff. No Ma’am

Monica Thornton-Anderson

JUST did this, but not with that crap….EVOO or JBCO only….

Terri Poindexter Patterson

Use grape seed oil.

Gayle Toler

That oil smells like a wet dog. My sis uses it and I gag when she’s in close proximity.

What is the diffeence between pre-poo and oil rinsing, besides when the oil is applied? Can I do both or is that excessive? Thanks.

I did this my last shampoo, and my hair was easier to comb. Going to do it again.
i used olive oil. Going to try coconut oil today.
