What is Hair Oil? A Guide For Men With Long Hair

In Educate by El Rubio18 Comments

What Is Hair Oil and Why Would I Use It?

As we grew long hair for the first time, we started learning dozens of long hairstyles for men, tips and techniques for twisting and tying your long hair, and all about men’s long hair products and accessories. This educational progression inevitably led us to the question…what is hair oil?

And why would I put oil in my hair?

Master hair technician and Chief Manetenance Officer for The Longhairs takes a deep dive into a proverbial cauldron of hair oil to answer this question in this action-packed educational video.

Not one to offer you a partial understanding, El Rubio starts with the basics of hair structure and chemical behavior, the importance of hair hydration, and the hazards of damage and breakage.

After a thorough breakdown with lots of hand gestures, he answers what is hair oil, explores some different types of hair oil (4:00), reviews their advantages and disadvantages, and demonstrates a step-by-step process on how to use it (7:35).

Be warned: this one gets oily. Get oiled up with El Rubio.

  1. Just received my 1st order of ” woodshop “. There is no “restrictor” on the bottle, and it appears partially full?

  2. hey guys,
    love your “training videos.”

    Now I’m all checked out on the biology of tresses, and am trained in the proper hair serum application tools and techniques. No more Castrol for me 🙂 Seriously, I would have over done it with the serum if I hadn’t watched this first.

    Great products and information. Thanks

  3. Best product in history. 🙂

    Christmas is just around the corner. Wood Shop would be a perfect gift to introduce short-haired friends to men’s hair care. I assume the serum benefits short hair as much as it does long hair, but the scent is uniquely masculine so anyone would enjoy using this. I haven’t tried the other scents yet; I’m sure they’re great too. I’m just saying Wood Shop would be a great man-to-man gift.

  4. Wood Shop is awesome. I was expecting a plain pine scent, but it’s more realistic than that. It has that mild burnt smell like when the saw gets too hot in the wood. Genius chemist. I can’t wait for ‘Axel Grease’ for the motor-heads and ‘Gun Powder’ for the ammo-sexuals. Seriously, this is great stuff; buy some for your short-haired friends.

  5. As you continue to experiment try clove oil or vanilla as a scent. A little goes a long way and is a head turner.

  6. endly your hair serum !!! but you’ve forgotten writing on the site the inci list…
    publishing it add confidence to the product; in Europe, it’s difficult to sale online without that list ( which is mentionned on the packaging)

  7. Great Stuff, Can’t wait to try.
    Thanks again El Moreno, Loving the “Hair Ties” but more importantly, loving being out of the awkward stage now. Just Letting It Ride!
    Hey, whats you’r thoughts on Leave in conditioners with “Argan” and other oils?

  8. They made this oil in three of my favorite scents. Oh the struggles of trying to decide which one to try first.

  9. I use all kinds of oils…. beer shampoo i make…. I will try this and let u know….. hey if i buy and dont like…. wtf… I think it will be fine… I do castor oil. Long hair dont care grow oil. So let’s see what u guys got. U rock dudes

    1. give us the recipe of your beer shampoo; it could interest other cosmetic homemade makers

      1. I just did a search for beer shampoo..everything in beer is great for your hair. 1 CUP OF your shampoo. 1 beer heat in pan MEDIUM heat 15 20 min cool and mix together….my wife has not stopped using….i like using a good belgian beer

        1. t’ as quand même pas osé mettre une Chimay sur ta tête !!!! une Jupi, ça le fait autant, et c’ est pas un crime…
          ( i hope you did not use a Chimay beer for making your shampoo; it should be a crime !!!, a jupiler or a budweiser is so convenient for that use…lol
