What is a good hair oil to use for acne prone skin – coconut oil / olive oil / almond oil ? Can jojoba oil be used as a hair oil? What about amla oil? What about sesame oil as a hair oil?

 Olive oil, almond oil, sesame oil, coconut oil are all comedogenic oils, especially in the formulations used in hair oils.

Safer hair oil options are castor oil and jojoba oil but they are both pretty thick to use alone. 

You do not need to keep hair oil all 24 hours in order to benefit from it. Maybe once a week give yourself a good hair massage with a hair oil of your choice and then wash it off after an hour or so.  If you do this, you will be able to use almost any oil you like because you are using it under “controlled conditions”. Three things to remember here:

– Make sure to tie the oiled hair up to keep it away from the face

– Wash hands thoroughly after massaging your hair

– Wash hair keeping the head tilted backwards, not forward

If you are afraid that hair oil may trickle down the face even during these 1-2 hours – before applying hair oil, use a thin line of Vaseline all around your hair line to prevent the hair oil from travelling.

If you use a hair conditioner, you will not need to use a hair oil on a daily basis. Rinsing hair with a  conditioner will provide moisture as well as keep hair manageable. Using a leave-in conditioner is not a good idea for acne prone skin.

If you are used to keeping hair oil on throughout the day and can’t do without one, a safe bet is Johnson’s Baby Hair Oil enriched with avocado and pro-vitamin B5. It is a very thin formula and contains avocado oil and olive oil.

Amla oil is usually amla extract suspended in vegetable oil and mineral oil. Mineral oil is not comedogenic, but the vegetable component may be.

Is mustard oil is comedogenic or not?

Mustard seed oil has anti-inflammatory properties and is rich in sulfur, an ingredient often used to fight acne. So it does look like mustard oil is non-comedogenic, although I would limit its use to hair only.
