Should You Use Engine Oil on your hair?

 


In many natural hair groups, people are suggesting using engine oil, YES you read that right, Car Motor Oil, on the scalp and hair.


You should not use engine oil in your hair because:


1. Toxicity: 

Engine oil contains toxic chemicals like petroleum distillates, heavy metals, and additives that can be harmful when absorbed through the skin or scalp. Some of these can cause heath issues that are terminal. 


2. Not formulated for hair:

Engine oil is designed for lubricating engines, not for human hair. It can strip your hair of its natural oils, cause build-up, and lead to dryness, brittleness, and breakage.


3. Clogs pores: 

Engine oil can clog your scalp's pores, leading to irritation, itchiness, and even hair loss.


4. Not hygienic: 

Engine oil is not sterile and can contain contaminants like dirt, dust, and other debris that can infect your scalp.


5. Damage to hair structure:

Engine oil can alter the structure of your hair, causing it to become weak, brittle, and prone to breakage.


Instead, use gentle, hair-specific products that are formulated to nourish and protect your hair. If you have hair concerns, consult a dermatologist or hair care professional for advice.
