If you've been browsing hair care tips and tricks on TikTok, chances are that you've encountered content creators enthusiastically sharing hair oils on your For You page. While there is a range of oils that you can pick up for hair, one of our personal favorites at Desert Essence is  jojoba oil. This replenishing golden oil is a  botanical powerhouse  for nourishing hair, and you can always count on it for a good hair day. After you try it out for yourself, it’ll go from a fun hair oil trend to an integral part of your hair care routine. 


Benefits of Using Hair Oil

Jojoba oil is one of those  multi-tasking botanical wonders, so you can get many uses out of one little bottle. You can use it to treat your cuticles, remove makeup, moisturize skin and so much more.  But if you're wondering, is jojoba oil good for hair? The answer is absolutely. 

The benefits of jojoba oil for hair are abundant. It's infused with vitamins and minerals such as vitamin C, B vitamins, vitamin E and more for hydrating and replenishing strands. So why do we think jojoba oil is the best oil for hair? Here are just a few of our favorite reasons. 


 1.Nourishes the scalp and hair

Jojoba oil can deliver non-greasy hydration to the skin, which includes the skin on your head. You can pamper your head with jojoba oil to help relieve dryness and tension. Those who experience flakes may find it extra revitalizing and hydrating to use in a scalp massage. 

 2.Adds shine and improves texture

For those lackluster hair days, jojoba oil can add a touch of glossiness to dull manes. The perfect deep-conditioning treatment, jojoba oil nourishes your strands for silky, touchably soft hair, leaving no greasiness behind.  

 3. Reduces frizz and tames flyaways

Dryness, breakage and split ends can make hair difficult to tame. A small amount of jojoba oil can help hydrate and smooth hair for effortlessly manageable results.  


How to Select a High-Quality Hair Oil

When you’re looking for a hair oil, consider what your hair needs. Along with pure jojoba oil, Desert Essence also carries jojoba oil blends. Pamper dry strands with a moisturizing and lightweight coconut oil blend. If your scalp could use extra TLC, massage a coconut and coffee oil blend into your scalp for a hydrating treatment packed with antioxidants. 

Along with good-for-you ingredients, consider looking into good-for-the-earth blends. Desert Essence's jojoba oil and jojoba oil blends are extracted without chemicals and come from sustainable desert farms in the sand dunes of the Peruvian desert. After growing jojoba sustainably, farmers hand-harvest the nut-like seeds and cold-press the golden oil. When you're using Desert Essence jojoba oil, you can be confident that you're treating your hair and Mother Nature with kindness. 

If you couldn’t already tell, jojoba oil is one of our flagship ingredients at Desert Essence. But in addition to using jojoba oil and oil blends, you can also pick up hair care products featuring jojoba oil — think go-to's such as Desert Essence Smoothing Hair Primer and Desert Essence Coconut Hair Defrizzer and Protector Spray


How to Use Hair Oil

Where exactly does hair oil fit into your hair care routine? If you're wondering how to use jojoba oil for hair, the answer is actually pretty flexible. Generally speaking, you'll want to use it before washing your hair. Here are a few ways we like to use our hair oil: 

  • As a conditioning treatment or scalp massage oil: To use jojoba oil in a deep conditioning treatment or a scalp massage, you want to work it into your hair before you shampoo and rinse your mane — you won't need more than a quarter-sized amount of oil. In order to let jojoba oil work its magic, let it sit in your hair for 5 to 10 minutes before you wash it off. 
  • As a conditioner add-in: You can also put a few drops of jojoba oil into your conditioner for extra nourishing hydration if you want to manage dry hair. After conditioning your hair, you can rinse as usual!

    Healthy, soft, manageable hair is just a few drops of oil away. To give your hair care routine a botanical boost, check out Desert Essence shampoo, conditioner and hair styling favorites in addition to pure jojoba oil.
