But before that, What is your hair type? Is it Oily, dry, normal or sensitive?
You should be very sure of your hair type before even proceeding further. It is very common that people with oily skin will have oily scalp as well, which leads to oily hair. Oily scalp have overactive oil glands which secrets oil more than required. Same is the case with dry hair, but the oil glands here are ineffective and thus does not produce enough natural oils to the scalp to hydrate your hair.

It is a common misconception that Oily hair beauties should not oil their hair. Oiling your hair will not make your hair or your oil glands to secrete more. Over washing your hair, your food habits and hormones are the ones which have huge impact on your scalp and thus to your hair.
Choosing the right type of Hair oils, carrier oils and essential oils for your hair type is the first and foremost thing to do in your hair care routine.
The right oils will not only help balance the oil secretion on your scalp but also reduces the excess oil secretion.
Light hair oils like Jojoba oil and Argan oil are well suited for this hair type. These Oils will provide right moisturization and hydration to your scalp without weighing down your hair.
Use not more than 1 tablespoon of hair oil to oil your hair (for medium length hair). The Oil should be distributed on your scalp, mid length hair and ends. Least on your scalp, Minimum on your mid length hair and generous on your ends of your hair.
Oil your hair prior to 3-4 hours of washing your hair.
How Often should you Oil your Hair if your have Oily scalp ?
Ideally, Oiling your hair once per week should be enough for Oily scalp. But, If you are doing it in the right way as I said above, You can in fact go ahead and oil your hair two times per week too. Despite of having Oily scalp, I like to oil my hair. Why you ask? Its because of the benefits of natural plant and nut oils which will enhance your hair’s texture to give naturally shinny looking gorgeous hair.
