Hair Oil vs. Hair Deep Conditioning

Good hair days and bad hair days are a myth. If you take care of your hair with simplistic treatments to beat daily lifestyle problems, everyday will be a great hair day!

Here we throw some light on hair oil & deep conditions treatments. As we always suggest - once your done reading it, take your own call.



When was the last time you gave your scalp a great ‘champi’ (the Indian household term for a relaxing oil massage)? Some chemical hair treatments rob our hair of its natural oils and nutrients. Basic unhealthy habits are excessive hair washing and not adding enough conditioner, thus stripping your hair of its moisture without adding any back. A simple way to enhance the lost sheen & hair health is through natural hair oil extracts to moisturise the scalp and smoother the hair cuticles. A variety of oils like vitamin E, Olive, coconut etc have been used over centuries and the result has always been lustrous hair. However given the lifestyle & environmental changes, oil treatments may not be a fit for all.

To help you determine if oiling your scalp is for you, here are some pros and cons.


1. Stimulating blood supply and calming the body by massaging oil into the hair

2. Oil offers additional brilliance to hair

3. Oiling and applying humidity to the scalp development

4. Oiling the scalp can alleviate dry scalp and dandruff

5. Oil affects and keeps the hair from becoming brittle and dull.

6. Some oils encourage hair formation, such as castor oil and coconut oil. Treatments of hot oil seal in extra moisture, increasing light, body and bounce.


1. Oil absorbs surface toxins and dust if left long.

2. Over-oiling can produce hair that looks greasy and might need more shampoo to remove the oil from the hair strands pricing counter productive.

3. Heavy oils will weigh down hair.



Based on the type of hair conditioner you pick, the label you prefer and what concerns you are seeking to solve with respect to your hair, there are both strengths and drawbacks when it comes to deep conditioners.

Some deep condition weekly, while others deep condition their hair bi-weekly — the choice is really up to you. Leaving the conditioner on for a longer period helps to penetrate your hair strands and treat and repair damaged hair.


  1. Deep conditioning contributes to reducing breakage and split ends, and it also improves your hair’s health.

  2. Deep conditioning allows you to improve the elasticity of your hair so that you can prevent breakage.

  3. Deep conditioning your hair helps to smooth the shaft of your hair and gain back the natural shine of your hair.

  4. Coloring is a chemical process that can sometimes alter your hair strand’s structure, which can sometimes weaken the hair and leave it open to dryness and breakage. You can help avoid damage by deep conditioning your hair on a regular basis.

  5. Moisture is the key to healthy hair. If you suffer from dry scalp and dandruff, then deep conditioning can assist in that department.


  1. May make very fine hair limp. Rinse-out conditioners will weigh down delicate strands until a very light product is chosen.

  2. It should be rinsed out completely to avoid scalp build up.

  3. The wrong formula will lead to sticky hair strands.


The essential properties of deep conditioning and hair oil are essentially to make hair softer,cleaner, healthier and easier to manage and style.

Having given you all the information we think relevant to hair care, we surmise you should choose what works for you.
