Waves are becoming the trend once again in 2023! Many, such as myself, have had 360 waves for a while. But to keep and maintain them, you need the perfect oil to keep your waves healthy and happy. There are so many oils on the market, from coconut, castor, and argan, that it becomes difficult to figure out which one is the best.

So I searched the market and tried these oils and based them the best on certain categories! Read on to see which would suit your wave the best.

Best Overall – Mielle Organics Rosemary

Mielle Organics Rosemary Mint Scalp & Hair Strengthening

Specification

  • Product Benefits: strengthens hair, gets rid of split ends, and soothes the scalp
  • Hair Type: all; best for curly and wavy hair types
  • Material Type free: paraben free
  • Liquid Volume: 2 fl oz.
  • Scent: a minty smell with a rosemary undertone

Description

For stronger, thicker, and shinier hair, the Mielle Strengthening Oil is the best. Gives your waves the perfect shine and gets rid of those frizz and split ends.

Features

Strengths and nourishes: your hair will feel thicker and shinier with this product

Split ends gone: says bye to split ends and frizz

Soothes the scalp: combat dandruff and itchiness, especially for sensitive scalps.

How to use

So for oil, the first instruction is to make sure you brush your waves are nice and moisturized. You want the moisturizer to be set in your hair and then layer it with the oil to keep it there. You should always moisturize your hair before applying the oil, that will be the same way you use any other product I have reviewed here. Then you want will have to make sure your hair is brushed against the grain and raise it. That way you can apply the oil by massaging it into your scalps.

I know some of you either put it directly into your scalps or use a brush to get it in there, but that either uses too much oil or ruins your brush. Instead, I take it by hand and rub the oil all over my hand. Take enough so you have just enough so you create a little puddle in the middle of your palm, rub it all over your hand, and then massage it into your scalp. After that take your medium or hard brush and style your waves. Then take a little plastic Ziploc bag, place your hand in it, and rub your hair to get any excess oil off your hair. Last but not least, wrap your hair in a silk durag and you are done!

Expert Verdict

I want you to know, that hair oil is to nourish your scalps and give your hair the shine it lacks. Anything extra, and it’s just added benefits. And Mielle Organics Rosemary Mint Scalp & Hair Strengthening Oil gives way more than that! I have noticed how shiny my hair has become with just a few drops. And all those pesky frizz was gone! My hair is dry so it’s nice to have an oil that helps soothes the itchiness and takes away dandruff. Thankfully, this does it all. It is why I consider it to be the best overall oil for your 360 waves. The only thing I would say is that in my limited use, I didn’t really find it that strengthening. Maybe extended use you would find that benefit. Otherwise, use it for any type of wave possible!

Pros and Cons

ProsCons
Hair stays shiny for daysDidn’t feel the strengthening effect
Soothes scalp and gets rid of itchiness 
Split ends and frizz are gone 

Best Coconut Oil for 360 Waves – Oliology Coconut Oil 10-in-1 Multipurpose Spray

Oliology Coconut Oil 10 in 1 Multipurpose Spray

Specification

  • Product Benefits: detangles hair, moisturizes, and gives a shine
  • Hair Type: all
  • Material Type Free: paraben free
  • Liquid Volume: 8.5 fl oz.
  • Scent: coconut

Description

A nutrient-rich, 10-in-1 coconut oil spray that will serve to benefit your waves by detangling them and giving them a bright shine.

Features

Leave-in treatment: simply spray, rub, and then cover to get your desired shine

Coconut oil: one of the best for 360 waves

Hydration: acts as an oil, but still moisturizes the scalp and hair.

How to use

As this is a spray, I have used it both directly on the hair and spraying it on my hand. But I have found using it on my hand better. Just spray twice on your hand and then rub it all over. Of course, your hair has to be pulled against the grain with a comb so you can directly get at the scalp. Massage it well, medium brush to style your waves, and then use the Ziploc bag trick I talked about before to get rid of any excess. And then use a silk durag to cover your hair so the oil doesn’t evaporate.

Expert Verdict

You have probably heard of how good coconut oil is for your hair, and it’s no exception for your 360 waves. It gives a great shine and helps trap the moisturizer you use before. The cool thing about this, after a few applications my hair was silky, and detangling my waves became much easier! It does not feel greasy at all and is great for the scalp. However, my only complaint is that the bottle doesn’t spray that well. May it is because of the oil’s consistency, but otherwise, it is great.

Pros and Cons

ProsCons
Best coconut oil in the market for 360 wavesThe spray nozzle does not work as intended
Detangling hair for each use became easier 
Great and long-lasting shine

Features

Non-greasy: Doesn’t give the sticky feeling that other oil products have

Fast-absorbing: quick and easy application

Easier brushing: leaves your hair nice and soft to the touch, very easy to brush through as a result.

How to use

With almond oil, make sure you have warm hands! This will make the application even better for your scalps. Take one squeeze in your hand and then rub it all over your hand. With your hair let out of its waves, gently rub it all over your scalps. Really get it in your scalps too, it will make it give it a nourishing effect on the scalp. Then brush to style and cover it up in a silk durag for a couple of hours so the oil sets into your scalp well.

Expert Verdict

Don’t be surprised by the statement that this product is for the skin and face because this is multipurpose and is one of the best almond oil. Because it has no other oils and other additives, it is great! My hair is dry, so applying this made my hair feel soft and very moisturized. My scalps appreciated it too. However, a big disclaimer, almond oil is best used for thinner hair. So if you have type 3 or type 4 hair, you would need to use more of the product to really get that shine on your hair.

Pros and Cons

ProsCons
Hair soft to touchBetter for thinner hair, so be aware of if your hair is thicker.
Brushing becomes easier with silkier hair 
Fast absorbing so no greasy feeling 

Best Weightless Hydrating Oil Hair- OGX Nourishing + Coconut Oil Weightless

OGX Nourishing+Coconut Oil Weightless Hydrating Oil Hair Mist

Specification

  • Product Benefits: gets rid of frizz,
  • Hair Type: all types
  • Material Type Free: alcohol-free
  • Liquid Volume: 4 fl oz.
  • Scent: coconut fragrance

Description

A lightweight formula blend infused with coconut oil and bamboo extract, the OGX Coconut Oil Weightless Hydrating Oil Mist helps damaged hair and leaves it nourished, while coconut oil helps lock in moisture.

Features

Defrizz your hair: stay bye to frizz and tame any flyaways on your 360 waves

Moisturizes with coconut: coconut oil helps moisturize your hair

All types of hair: the coconut oil in this helps with all types, especially dry and coarse hairs

How to use

As always, don’t spray it directly on your waves. This would leave it on top of the hair and not the scalp which wants the oil. Comb out your hair and then massage it gently into your scalp. Brush to style your waves and then get your silk durag to wrap it up for a few hours while your scalp receives the coconut goodness.

Expert Verdict

Coconut oil is great for split ends. Add the weightless formula to the mix and you have an oil from OGX that gets rid of any frizz that would otherwise ruin a clean 360 wave! Not only that, but it also provides great hydration for your hair and especially for your scalp too. For some, the smell might seem too overpowering so use it very carefully if you are sensitive to smell. Also, if you use too much, it might flatten the waves too much, so do be careful of that as well. But I feel like that with all weightless oils, this one does it to a lesser extent than other products and that is why I chose it as the best weightless oil on the list.

Pros and Cons

ProsCons
Gets rid of all the frizz and flyways on the hairSmell might be overwhelming for some
Doesn’t weigh the hair downMight flatten your hair if overused
Great for dry hair 

Best Deep Conditioning Hair Treatment – Garden of Life Coconut Oil

Garden of Life Coconut Oil

Specification

  • Product Benefits: raw coconut oil for your 360 waves
  • Hair Type: all, especially for types 3 and 4
  • Material Type Free: completely vegan product
  • Liquid Volume: 14 fl oz.
  • Scent: coconut

Description

Cold-pressed raw coconut oil for all your conditioning hair treatment. Extra virgin coconut oil is certified USDA organic and non-GMO.

Features

Raw coconut oil: solid coconut oil which is easy to melt and apply to your hair

Conditions your hair: this gives deep conditioning that your 360 will need from time to time

Versatile: can be used as a liquid or a solid

How to use

Here is the thing, this product will become solid if you leave it in the cold. So there are two ways to use this. One, turn 2 tablespoons back into a liquid and the usual apply it to the scalp, style with your brush, a plastic bag to get rid of the excess oil, and silk durag to wrap it. Only this time, you have to leave it overnight to really get that deep conditioning treatment.

But, you could also use it as a smoothie! Take the solid coconut oil and mix it with a big scoop of shea butter. You could also add additives. For example, I added a tablespoon of lemon juice to the smoothie to give deeper conditioning. Next, you will have to blend the mixture until it becomes a smooth creamy texture. Take it out and then rub it all over your damp hair, really massaging into your scalp. And then of course, the brush to style into silk durag wrap and leave it in overnight.

Expert Verdict

Don’t be fooled by the nutritional facts on the jar, this can definitely be used for your hair, especially when you want to do deep conditioning treatment! It enriches your hair so much that you only need to do deep conditioning maybe once a month at most. Trust me, you will love how your hair feels and looks after having done deep conditioning. Your hair will fresh and healthier, not to mention it will give a long-lasting shine. Mine lasted a week! But, the solid coconut oil might not be for everyone so you would have to melt it before use. And the fact that it has to be covered for at least 8 hours means you need to make some time to use it. That is why it is best to leave it overnight.

Pros and Cons

ProsCons
Great deep conditioningSolid coconut oil is hard to store and maintain
Hair feels rejuvenated and healthierHave to leave it in for a long time to get the deep conditioning effect to work
Shine lasts for a really long time

Deals with frizz: leaves hair feeling soft, helps with brushing, and deals with frizz, split ends, etc.

How to use

With a rinse-out conditioner, all of the application is done in the shower. You can either use it after shampooing or straight use the conditioner. You want to use gently rub the top of your hair with this conditioner and leave it there for 5 to 10 minutes. Don’t listen to the 3-minute instruction on the label, for wavy or coiled waves you need the extra time to actually make the conditioner work on your hair. After the time, just wash as you normally would. You can take a wide-tooth comb to the shower so you can train your waves better. Don’t need to do anything extra afterward, maybe you could wrap your hair but it’s not necessary.

Expert Verdict

The good thing about the product is that you will get a lot of hydration from the oil. It conditions and moisturizes your hair and makes it softer so you won’t need to brush as hard as you would have used to do so. This product works well for straight and wavy hair the best because of its lightweight nature. However, if you have curly or wavy hair, you might find the oil to be too thin for your hair, which means you would have to overuse the product. If you have thinner waves, then this is the product for you.

Pros and Cons

ProsCons
Great for moisturizing and a quick conditionNot that good for thicker hair
Makes hair softer so brushing is easier 
  

Best Oil for Multi-Vitamin Scalp Specification – The Mane Choice Multi-Vitamin Scalp

The Mane Choice Multi Vitamin Scalp Nourishing Hair Growth Oil
  • Product Benefits: multivitamin for hair growth and loss prevention
  • Hair Type: better for thicker hair types
  • Material Type Free: no sulfates, no parabens
  • Liquid Volume: 4 fl oz.
  • Scent: a mixture of different oil

Features

Promotes natural hair growth: helps you grow back hair naturally

Enriched with vitamins: vitamin C and D rich which benefits hair in many ways

Reduces shedding and breakage: less hair loss as a result of using this

How to use

Don’t apply it directly to the scalp as advertised on the label. It is better to control the amount you need on your hands first. You only need a few drops on your hands and rub them all over, then gently massage them into your scalp. Make sure that you are using this product before you will wash your hair. Wrap it up in a hot towel this time for an hour at most and then wash the oil off your hair.

Expert Verdict

This is another of the products that have a misleading label on it but is still the best in its category. I don’t know why they labeled it as a daily-use oil. Never use oil on a daily basis! You should use oils about 3 times a month at most. This is too greasy to use on a daily basis. But otherwise, I have immediately noticed a significant lack of hair on my combs after using this oil. Maybe I would have to use the product for a longer period to get the hair growth part but my scalp felt a lot better and cleaner after using this. So if you are experiencing a lot of hair shedding, treat your hair with this multivitamin and you are sure to get the benefits instantly.

Pros and Cons

ProsCons
An instant impact of less hair lossNot for daily use or direct application
Cleans your scalp very well 
  

HASK Repairing Shine Hair Oil Argan Oil – Best Oil for Repairing Shine Hair

HASK Repairing Shine Hair Oil Argan Oil

Specification

  • Product Benefits: nourishment and restored shine
  • Hair Type: best for dry hair
  • Material Type Free: no sulfates, no parabens, no phthalates, and alcohol-free
  • Liquid Volume: 2 fl oz.
  • Scent: similar to hazelnut

Description

Argan oil has been used for a long time, and HASK brings the argan oil you need to regain your shine for your 360 waves. Gives definition to the waves and is good for the scalp.

Features

Shine restorer: if you have dry waves, then this is the best product to help you regain your shine

Alcohol-free: your hair won’t feel like they are dry after using this product

Soothes scalp: if you have a dry and itchy scalp, then this product will help relieve your problem

How to use

You want a shine so what you want is to apply it so that the shine lasts longer. For that, you definitely need to keep the oil overnight for the best possible result. It took me three tries before figuring that out, and a fourth one because I forgot to wipe off excess oil. My durag was left with a few oil stains on it because I overused the oil.

Right after a wash, bring out your hair from its waves and then apply the oil by massaging it into the scalp. You can brush to style and then wipe off the excess oil with a plastic bag. Then wrap it up with a durag for the whole day or overnight. The shine will last until the next time you wash your waves.

Expert Verdict

If you have dry waves like mine, you definitely need this product! Using it every other week has kept the shine on for a longer time. Not only that, but it also helped soothe my scalp of its itchiness because they are always dry. The only complaint I have, it’s only 2 ounces! Good argan oil is hard to come by, and you will find out that you need to rebuy the product every 2 months or so because the bottle is so small. Also to note; not a big con but your hair will start frizzing up in about a week after use so you would have to use another product

Pros and Cons

ProsCons
Restores your shineSmall bottle
Soothes scalpHair will start frizzing after a week, earlier in more humid climates
Gets rid of dryness in hair 
Shine last until you wash your hair again

Best Hair Oil for Strengthening – Hollywood Beauty Castor Oil Hair Treatment

Hollywood Beauty Castor Oil Hair Treatment

Specification

  • Product Benefits: hair strengthening properties
  • Hair Type: best for thicker hair
  • Material Type Free: dairy free
  • Liquid Volume: 7.5 oz.
  • Scent: unscented

Description

Hair and scalp moisturizing, healing, strengthening, and conditioning. Use daily to condition, moisturize and restore natural sheen to your 360 waves and scalp.

Features

Strengthens hair: leaves hair fuller and stronger

Prevents frizzing: hair feels less frizzy

Good shine: hair has a shine for a longer time

How to use

This product is thicker than your usual oils so you only want to take a small amount and have it on top of your hair. Make sure that your hair is brushed out from the waves and then apply it lightly on top. The thicker consistency would clog your scalp. After applying, you then brush your hair with a medium or hard brush to style your 360 waves. Leave a durag on for a few hours before washing out the oil again.

Expert Verdict

The only problem with castor oil is that it is thicker and heavier than your usual oil. Therefore, it leaves a residue on your hair. This product is also definitely not for regular or daily use, so if you are using this to get fuller or stronger hair, then make sure to use it once every two or three weeks for the best result. That way you will have a 360 wave that is not too greasy from the oil and your scalp is happier as a result. Otherwise, your waves will be stronger than ever before! You will also notice the effects immediately, and your hair will have less breakage and less fall. Not to mention it gives a decent shine that lasts for a bit.

Pros and Cons

ProsCons
Hair will be stronger and fullerToo greasy for daily use
Less breakageLeaves a residue if too much is used

How to Treat your Hair and Scalp for 360 Waves?

For 360 waves, your hair and scalps are both important. You want both the look, but also need the hair to be in the best condition possible. That is why the Mielle Organics Rosemary Mint Scalp & Hair Strengthening Oil has a mixture of different oils in the product that works well together making it the best overall oil for your 360 waves.

To treat your hair and scalp, you need to:

  • Keep your hair clean, shampooing and conditioning when necessary
  • Use natural oils that penetrate your hair follicles and do not leave residue
  • Keeping your hair moisturized so your scalps and hair follicles are hydrated
  • Deep condition once a month
  • Avoid using bleach or colors on your hair
  • Massage your scalp with oils, especially coconut oil
  • Wear a durag to define and protect your 360 waves

Is Coconut Oil Good for 360 Waves?

Is Coconut Oil Good for 360 Waves
Is Coconut Oil Good for 360 Waves

Coconut oil is one of the best, if not the best, oil for your hair! Once the oil is able to penetrate the hair follicles and roots, it will hydrate the hair and scalp. You will also feel a noticeable softness to your hair after using coconut oil, and it has strengthening properties that will both increase the volume and strength of your hair. It also penetrates the hair follicles unlike mineral oil, which makes it way better than those synthetic oils.

The other reason that makes coconut oil good for hair is that it has no additives, making it all natural. The protein that binds hair together is also present in coconut oil, which is why it is so compatible with hair. In short, coconut oil does everything for your hair that natural oils from your body cannot (mainly due to constant washing).

FAQs

Does olive oil work for waves?

Olive oil is great for 360 waves as it will give them a shine and keep your hair moisturized. However, avoid olive oil on the scalp as it will clog the pores.

What should I use to moisturize my waves?

Products that have shea butter and coconut oil have the best moisturizing effect on your 360 waves.

How do you get 360 waves deeper and wider?

When washing your hair, use a brush to style your hair while shampooing and conditioning. This will allow the product to be spread across the hair and help you have fuller, deeper, and wider waves as a result.

How can I make my 360 waves more visible?

Regular haircuts, brushing to get the wave, putting on a durag, and using oil that gives off a good shine will make sure that your 360 waves are clean, defined, and more visible.

Is oil good for wavy hair?

Yes, oil is great for your wavy hair! It helps keep the ends from breaking and having split ends and gives it a natural softness when it dries up.

Final Thoughts

Well, there you have it! Oils are essential to keeping your 360 waves shining and keeping your scalps hydrated and nourished. Without strong roots, your 360 waves would look dull and not as defined. Make sure to follow the steps I have mentioned in my review of the product to get the best out of them. Keep waving!
