Dry oils may be the answer to dry, damaged hair

By: Carla Snuggs 

If you’re looking for shine and frizz control, you may want try dry oil if you haven’t already. What is dry oil? Dry oil is a hair treatment oil  that helps rejuvenate dry, damaged hair. Unlike other hair oils, dry oil  is formulated to be so lightweight that it virtually disappears into the hair. It also evaporates from your hands. After trying a few dry oils, I knew I had to share the news with Posh Beauty Blog readers: dry oils really do moisturize the hair without weighing it down.

Dry oils are really easy to use: add a small amount of to the hands, apply at the ends and work up to the roots and then style as desired. And there you have it: weightless shine! We had a chat with Keila Rokkan, Lead Educator of Verb Products to learn more about how to use dry oil for softer, silkier, moisturized hair. Here are Keila’s dos and don’ts of dry oil:

1. Do use on both wet and dry hair.

2. If your hair is on the terribly dry side, apply from roots to ends while wet and blow dry for desired look.

3. When applying to wet hair, you can be more liberal with application, by pumping out 3-5 drops for long hair.

4. When applying to dry hair, focus mostly on the ends, and the top outer layer for shine and protection from heated styling tools. Also, use less, approximately 1-3 drops.

5. Some dry oils, like Verb Ghost Oil, can be applied to hands and face as well! For extra moisture during the winter months, add a drop to face lotion or your foundation.

Do Not:

1. If hair tends to be on the oilier side, do not apply dry oil to roots, just mid-shaft to ends.

2. If skin tends to be oilier, adding oils to your makeup routine can help skin to not produce as much oil on its own. So, you can add a drop to face right after cleansing, and see the improvement.
