Applying the best hair oils to your hair can help to hydrate your hair and fix damages to your hair. More so, some hair oils contain high-quality ingredients that promote healthy hair growth, prevent premature greying of hair, and relieve your scalp of bacteria build-up.

One way to get thick, long, and healthy hair is to receive a nice hot oil treatment. Hot oil treatment stimulates your scalp, enhances the look of your hair, and gives more nutrients and oxygen to your hair follicles.

More nutrients from hair oil also mean your hair will grow stronger and healthier and stronger. In this article, I have put together a list of the best hair oils for healthy hair.

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil offers lots of benefits for your hair. The oil helps to prevent hair loss, aids hair growth, prevents and repairs hair damage and breakage moisturizes hair strands and protects the hair and scalp against heat.

Coconut oil has moisture-retaining properties with which it improves the look of your hair.It does not evaporate from the hair but instead, remains inside the hair. These qualities make coconut oil one of the most effective and best hair treatments for healthy hair.

Using the oil regularly does not only prevent hair loss and give delicious hair smell but also promotes a healthy scalp and healthy hair growth.

Coconut oil contains fatty acids that work better than most conditioners. It sits on top of the hair, leading to shiny, silky, soft, and beautiful hair. You can apply the oil to your hair alone if your scalp usually gets oily. But if your scalp gets dry as well, apply the oil.

To apply the oil easier, I would suggest you warm it up slightly to melt it because it is solid at room temperature. You may rub the oil in-between your palm to melt it down, apply it to your hair, and allow it for about 30 mins to an hour before rinsing with a natural sulfide-free shampoo. Do this once every week for the best results.

Lavender Oil

Lavender essential oil is known to speed up hair growth. The oil has properties that make hair grow faster. More so, it has antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, both of which can improve your scalp health.

Simply add some drops of lavender oil into about 4 tablespoons of carrier oil, maybe coconut oil or olive oil. Apply the mixture directly to your scalp. Allow it on your scalp for about 10-15 minutes before you wash it off with a natural, sulfide-free shampoo. Do this several times a week.

Argan Oil

Argan oil, also called Moroccan oil, does wonders for your hair health. It contains useful ingredients like antioxidants, fatty acids, ferulic acid, and vitamin E. The antioxidants fight Ultraviolet rays and prevent damage to the hair cell.

Applying Argan oil will not only moisturize your hair, but also nourish it, and protect it from heat, but it will also reduce dryness, brittleness, and frizzling of your hair leaving your hair to look soft and manageable.

Moroccan oil is not as fatty as coconut oil, this makes it so perfect for more frequent use, or as a finishing oil after hair styling. If your hair is unruly, coarse, and dry, Argan oil will make it softer and shinier.

Apply a few drops of Moroccan oil to your palm, gently rub your palms together and apply the oil evenly on your dry or damp hair. Try as much as possible to avoid the hair roots. Do thisdaily to achieve the best results.


Oiling is an essential part of your hair care routine. It is also necessary if you want to grow your hair and make it healthy. Though the oils listed above are the best hair oils for healthy hair, everyone’s hair is different and requires different oil treatment.
