Why Regular Hair Oiling is a Must for Kids and Teens


We believe that every kid and teen deserves to embrace their natural beauty. So in this blog, we will delve into an essential hair care routine that can transform the way your kid’s and teen’s hair looks and feels. 

We're talking about the power of regular hair oil treatment

Hair is a huge part of your identity. It's a reflection of your personality, and taking care of it is crucial. Hair oiling is an age-old practice that has stood the test of time for a reason. 

While it’s usually overlooked, the benefits of oiling your hair regularly are truly magical!

So whether you are a parent to a kid or a teen, teaching them the importance of hair care and understanding it yourself can work wonders for their hair health and overall confidence!

So let’s start off with the basics.

Why Hair Oiling?

Hair oiling involves applying natural oils, like Almond or Argan, to your child’s  hair and scalp. This traditional practice has been cherished for centuries for its many benefits. 

By nourishing the hair from roots to tips, hair oiling helps restore moisture, strengthen the strands, and enhance your kid’s overall hair health. It also provides a protective barrier against environmental damage and reduces frizz, leaving the hair smooth and manageable!

Here are some of the wonders of hair oiling.

Deep Conditioning for Stronger Hair

Regular hair oiling acts like a deep conditioning treatment, penetrating the hair shaft and providing vital nutrients. 

This helps in strengthening the hair follicles, reducing breakage, and promoting healthier hair growth. So no more pesky split ends!

Moisture, Moisture, Moisture

Dry, brittle hair is a common concern among kids and teens. Thankfully, hair oiling can be a big saviour! 

By locking in moisture and preventing excessive evaporation, hair oiling keeps your child’s hair hydrated and soft. That means no more dull, lifeless locks!

Taming the Frizz

Frizzy hair can be a major frustration, but regular oiling can help tame the frizz by providing a protective layer that smoothes out the hair cuticles. 

Your kids are sure to have no more unruly hair days!

Stimulating Scalp Health

A healthy scalp is the foundation for healthy hair. 

Hair oiling stimulates blood circulation, promoting a nourished scalp and encouraging the growth of strong, vibrant hair. Plus, it can help to alleviate common scalp issues like dryness, itchiness, and dandruff.

Sounds great, right? 

So how do we begin?

Incorporating Hair Oiling into Your Routine

Choose the Right Hair Oil

With a plethora of hair oils available, it's important to choose the one that suits your kid’s and teen’s hair type and needs. 

Consider factors like hair texture, scalp condition, and personal preferences. A hair oil with natural ingredients is your best bet.

At Tikitoro, we  offer a range of carefully formulated hair oils specifically designed for kids and teens, with safe and natural ingredients. We’ll delve into this later in the blog.

Preparing for Hair Oiling

Preparation is key! 

Before applying hair oil, gently brush your child’s  hair to remove any tangles and knots. 

Make sure you start at their tips, then work your way up to the roots to avoid any breakage or fall-out. This also makes sure that you’re evenly distributing the oil throughout the  hair. 

Also consider warming the oil slightly for better absorption and a relaxing experience!

Application Techniques

Mastering the art of applying hair oil is probably the most important step for optimal results. 

Start off by parting your child’s hair into sections and apply the oil to your scalp using your fingertips. Massage the oil in gentle circular motions, allowing it to penetrate the roots. Then, work the remaining oil through the lengths of your hair. 

Make sure you’re focusing on the ends!

Overnight or Pre-Shampoo Treatment

Hair oiling can be added to your kid and teen’s routines in different ways. One popular method is the overnight treatment. 

Simply apply the oil to their hair and scalp before bed, ensuring even distribution. Cover their hair with a shower cap or wrap it in a soft cloth to protect the pillowcase. 

Leave the oil overnight, allowing it to work its magic as they sleep. In the morning, wash the hair as usual to reveal nourished, revitalised locks!

Alternatively, you can also opt for a pre-shampoo treatment. 

Apply the hair oil generously to your child’s hair and scalp, focusing on the ends. Leave it on for at least 30 minutes to allow the oil to deeply penetrate the hair. Then, proceed with your regular shampoo and conditioning routine. 

This method helps to restore moisture and protect your hair from the drying effects of shampooing.

Results take time. But here are some ways you can seal the deal on gorgeous tresses for your kids and teens!

Tips for Successful Hair Oiling

Consistency is Key

For optimal results, consistency is crucial. 

Incorporate hair oiling into your children’s routines at least once or twice a week. By making it a regular habit, you'll witness the long-term benefits and transform their hair over time!

Gentle Techniques

Kids and teens, especially, have gentle and delicate hair.

When applying and massaging the oil into their scalp, it’s important to make sure that you’re being extra gentle. 

Avoid vigorous rubbing, as it can lead to hair breakage. Instead, use your fingertips in circular motions to stimulate the scalp and promote blood circulation.

Don't Overdo It

While hair oiling is beneficial, using excessive amounts of oil can weigh down the hair and make it greasy. Start with a small amount and adjust based on your child’s hair needs. 

Remember, a little goes a long way.


To protect your children’s hair from environmental factors and prevent moisture loss, consider using a wide-toothed comb or a brush with natural bristles. These help distribute the oil evenly while minimising the damage on their hair strands.
