The 7 Biggest Mistakes YOU Made When Choosing a Hair Oil

     Hello beautiful! 💁🏾‍♀️ Are you on a quest for that perfect hair oil to give your luscious locks the love they deserve? We’ve all been there, and I mean all of us. Everyone of every hair texture and hair length has tried to navigate through the endless sea of products and promises. But don’t worry; I’m here to guide you through the 7 biggest mistakes we often make when choosing a hair oil.

So, Let’s dive in…


  1. Not Paying Attention to the Ingredients

     We've all seen those hair oils claiming supernatural hair growth powers. They promise to turn your TWA (teeny weeny afro) into waist-length curls overnight! But if you flipped that bottle around to check the ingredients…guess what? Surprise, Surprise – those magical components are nowhere to be found or are present in such tiny amounts that they might as well be invisible. Always read the ingredients list, Queen! If you don’t see the key ingredients, they mentioned to promote their oil, it’s time to move on. Your hair deserves honesty!

  1. Not Considering Allergies

     This one is crucial. Some natural oils can cause allergic reactions. Some oils have essential oils and herbs that can cause an allergic reaction. Before diving headfirst into a new product, do a patch test. Apply a small amount to your skin and wait 24 hours. If there’s no reaction, you’re good to go. Better safe than sorry!


  1. No Patience. Expecting Overnight Results

     I get it. Everybody wants Rapunzel-length hair by tomorrow. That is, until they have to manage it on a daily basis. But sis, real talk: hair growth takes time and consistency, especially if you are starting over with your hair journey. Don’t let impatience lead you astray. Stick to a routine, be consistent, and give your hair some time to soak in all the goodness. Be kind to your hair and the stage it's in. Love on that teeny weeny afro if that is your stage. Your patience will pay off, trust me.


  1. Chasing Hair Length Over Hair Health

     Long hair is beautiful, but healthy hair? That’s a whole other level of gorgeous. Focus on keeping your hair healthy, and the length will follow. Prioritize hydration, strength, and overall hair health over chasing inches. Whether it's short, mid-length, or long, healthy hair always wins!



  1. Comparing Your Results to Someone Else’s Results

     Comparison is the thief of joy. Your hair journey is unique, just like you. What works for one person might not work for you, and that’s okay. Celebrate your progress and focus on what makes your hair happy and healthy.

  1. Chasing Trends

     One minute, it’s coconut oil; the next, it’s moringa oil. While trying new things is fun, constantly switching up your hair oil game can confuse your hair. Find what works for your curls, coils, and kinks, and stick to it. Just because something is trending doesn’t mean it’s the best for you. Stay true to what your hair loves! If it isn't broken, then there is nothing to fix.


  1. Wasting Money on Low-Quality Products

     We’ve all been there – spending our hard-earned coins on a product that becomes a flop. Don’t be swayed by fancy packaging or big promises. Invest in quality products with proven ingredients and good reviews. Your hair will thank you!



     So, there you have it! Avoid these seven mistakes, and you’ll be well on your way to finding the perfect hair oil for your gorgeous curls, coils, and kinks. Check out Totality’s Hair Elixir and Hair Power as you consider hair oils for your curls, coils, and kinks.  Remember, your hair is a crown – wear it with pride and take good care of it.
