In practice, oil is simply applied throughout the hair, from the ends to the scalp. As it turns out, this method was chosen by women hundreds or even thousands of years ago.

The method has survived to this day, although the means necessary to do so have changed, the goal has remained the same. The purpose of oiling the hair is to replenish the hair’s cuticles, restore its elasticity and healthy look and protect it from the sun.

In their composition they have a negligible amount of oils, the rest is, among others, silk and silicone. These solutions are effective, however, they have limited effect. They protect hair from damage but do not regenerate it in any way.
