How to prevent oil shine from hair oil

A dab of care oil – and the hair feels much velvety and soft. But depending on the consistency, the hair oils are not for every hair structure – you have to be careful with heavy vegetable oils.

Berlin – hair oil can care for brittle, damaged, breaking hair. And it helps with styling hard-to-tame hairstyles. But: An oily shine often remains on the hair after use – it can look like you have unwashed, greasy hair.

This is sometimes due to the hair structure. This is how a very rich base oil weighs down fine hair, explains the magazine “Öko-Test” (issue 2/2022). Especially here, but also with other hair structures, it makes sense to feel your way around every new hair oil brand: First you only knead two or three drops into the tips and then, if necessary, extend them drop by drop.

In addition, the experts who have tested hair oils advise putting the oil on wet hair. It can be used to add shine to the hair, define natural curls and protect straight hair from frizzing – i.e. prevent the so-called frizz.

Die richtige Menge


To try out how much hair oil the hair can absorb, you should first put the care product drop by drop into the tips.

Apply hair oil to dry hair at the end of styling. But not all hair oils are well suited for this. Heavy vegetable oils, in particular, would be harder to absorb into dry hair and can leave an oily shine.

Some hair oils contain questionable substances

The magazine “Öko-Test” tested 20 hair oils from drugstores and supermarkets: Specialized laboratories examined the products for allergenic fragrances and preservatives – and sometimes found what they were looking for. For example, there were paraffins in two products and eight silicone oils.

The grade “very good”, three times “good”, two times “satisfactory”, four times “sufficient” and one “poor” was awarded ten times. dpa
