Does hair absorb oil?


Yes, hair can absorb oil.


Yes, hair does absorb oil through the cuticle scales. For dry, porous, rough-feeling, or coarse hair, you may love the penetrating oils which will penetrate to the inner layers of your hair. If you have fine or soft hair which is easily over-conditioned, those same oils may make your hair feel greasy. Lower porosity hair may do better with less-penetrating oils or just sealing oils. It is important to try out the right type of oil that is suitable for your hair such that is would not be too greasy while offering the shine and the required level of repair and protection.
