Dr. Niraj Kakkar here wanted to break a big myth about hair oil, he says “Hair oil doesn’t help to grow hair. The living portion of hair is inside the skin, i.e. 3-4 mm deep inside the scalp. When we apply oil, it never reaches inside the hair. Hair oil only gives us shiny hair and no growth benefits. No, oil is able to penetrate 3-4 mm inside the scalp.
But if you want to apply Hair oil you can do so because it helps make your hair shiny and smooth. If your scalp is extremely dry, doctor recommends you to use coconut oil. We advice the use of hair serums instead of hair oil because the chemical composition of serums match with the chemical composition of hair.
