Should I Put Oil On Natural Hair Before Or After Blow Drying

Protecting Your Hair

When using heat styling tools, you'll want to protect your natural hair. Africa Miranda, natural hair model and hair care writer, recommends using a heat protectant product with oil as a main ingredient. Smooth the heat protectant onto your hair before blow-drying to protect hair and give it a healthy sheen.

Oils and Natural Texture

Natural hair can be dry and water-sensitive. When caring for natural hair, it is best to apply a dab of natural oil, such as coconut oil, to your ends after you blow-dry.

Bottom Line

Using the right oils on natural hair is beneficial and causes no damage. Using a heat-protectant with natural oil as a main ingredient will help protect your tresses from drying out during heat styling.
