Heavy & Flat Hair Care – Nanoil Test – Oil for Low Porosity Hair [reviews, effects after 3 months]

nanoil hair oil review - low porosity

I often hear that my hair is nice, thick and dense. Yes, it looks great when it’s loose and freshly washed – silky smooth and shiny in the sunlight. Still, those who have a different hair type don’t know how difficult it is to care for heavy and easily weighed-down hair.


Heavy & thick hair – the brutal truth

I can’t do much about styling because this hair type is totally unrewarding and curl-resistant; curls last 3 hours tops, then my hair looks like a disaster. To make things worse my scalp goes wild because there’s bad circulation due to thick strands. Using a joke – the ventilation doesn’t run smoothly. That is why the scalp doesn’t get enough oxygen so hair roots get greasy in no time (the sebum balance is disturbed). There is one more demon of heavy and thick hair; choosing the right products is a challenge. Hair masks, styling primers, conditioners don’t want to cooperate, leaving my strands weighed-down, flat and heavy. Although there are special shampoos for oily hair, I’ve spotted such shampoos have nothing to do with the scalp care. They cause dryness so the scalp tries to replenish the sebum by producing more and more… the sebum secretion is intensified. In other words, you must be careful with this hair type: it looks pretty but has its demons. If you have the same type, you know what I mean.

What’s best for thick, oily hair? New Nanoil Hair Oil

I’m sure you’ll be interested in an extraordinary product – Nanoil for heavy, thick, easily weighed-down hair. I came across the product while searching for a suitable one for my hair; have I mentioned that thick hair is also prone to thinning? Especially, when the seasons of the year are changing. A nightmare.

Nanoil is specially designed for heavy, thick, weighed-down and greasy hair. The product hinders hair loss, promotes hair growth, lifts the roots, adds volume and balances the sebum secretion on the scalp… well, well, well 🙂 The description is great. I was curious about the reality. Bought it, used it, the half of the bottle is gone. Today, I know everything about it 😉 Are your curious about Nanoil effects?

Nanoil Hair Oil – description & ingredients

Nanoil for low porosity hair is one of the tree oils in this line. Each one is for a different hair type. I didn’t have a problem with choosing the one that suits my hairdo. The division is quite straightforward. I’m giving a short description of each version so you can choose the right one 🙂

– Nanoil for low porosity hair – thick, heavy, easily weighed-down, greasy strands.

– Nanoil for medium porosity hair – I would call it normal which is often frizzy, static, sometimes falls out in excess, tends to lose moisture, hair ends often need an intensified care, you easily face up to overproteined hair leading to dull strands.

– Nanoil for high porosity hair – dry, brittle, damaged, over-processed hair that requires a special care, protection and full repair.

I guess none of you is going to have problems with choosing the proper oil. A hair porosity test https://nanoil.co.uk/hair-porosity-test on Nanoil website is a huge plus. You won’t have any doubts about the choice of the right version and hair care that is necessary for your hair type.

Each of the three oils has a different list of ingredients. Oils match the hair type; their molecules go along with the hair structure. Apart from the oils, Nanoil is rich in hair-enhancing, anti-hair loss and growth-boosting substances. In the oil for low porosity hair I can find:

Pine Oil, Coconut Oil, Argan Oil, Castor Oil, Shea Butter, Maracuja Oil, UV filter, Kerastim, Soy Seed Extract, Wheat Shoot Extract, Babassu Oil, Monoi Oil, Cupuacu Butter, Panthenol, Vitamin E and Vitamin A

The ingredients are truly impressive – oils, vitamins, sunscreen and an extra 😉 Let’s move on to the most important part – how to use Nanoil hair oil, how to do a hair oil treatment, what are the Nanoil benefits and reviews.

Nanoil Hair Oil – application in 4 steps

Heavy hair hates leave-in products. I never use cosmetics that don’t need rinsing. That’s why I’m happy Nanoil belongs to the ‘washable’ products. The application is extremely easy:

  1. I apply Nanoil to damp hair after washing because hair scales are raised so more nutrients are absorbed more quickly and easily.
  2. I leave Nanoil on hair and scalp. The oil is free of parabens and silicones so it’s scalp-friendly – after all, it’s designed to nourish and strengthen mostly the hair bulbs. I put a turban on and wait for an hour (when I have no time, it’s 30 minutes).
  3. Before washing it off, I apply a hair mask for five minutes – it emulsifies the oil so I have no problems washing it off.
  4. I rinse the oil and mask out, wash hair again, and … voila! I blow-dry or air-dry.

Nanoil Hair Oil – effects after three months

I must say… it hasn’t let me down. Nanoil gives amazing effects and made my hair and mostly my scalp much healthier. The effect of voluminous hair was striking after the very first oil treatment but after three months I can confidently say that a lot has changed for the better:

  • my hair’s silky smooth and very soft
  • it’s got body and freshness
  • the scalp is clean, neither oily nor dry
  • hair roots are lifted
  • hair’s more manageable (recently curls survived an entire party)
  • no more falling out, nice growth
  • effortless detangling
  • a stunning shine! <3
  • baby hair appeared on my temples, I didn’t expect that but it’s a nice surprise to see these tiny hairs growing 🙂

Nanoil Hair Oil – price

I don’t know how much you’re able to pay for a GOOD hair product. I think Nanoil’s price is fair. No other product has ever enhanced my hair as much as Nanoil. It isn’t just a simple oil. It enhances the bulbs, strengthens and stimulates them, improves the condition of the scalp and increases the blood flow, working from within and on the outside for the maximum beautifying 🙂 Stunner! It is long-lasting at the same time; I used up a half of the bottle within three months. That is why, to me, the price is fine. Such a product is worth much more. It is priceless 🙂 I think you can gift yourself with such a treat once in a few months.

Nanoil Hair Oil – reviews 

I’ve checked some Nanoil reviews for you. I haven’t noticed any super-negative ones. Generally, these are good opinions. Most of all, famous bloggers, hair maniacs and vloggers recommend it – I always value their reviews. The most popular downsides of Nanoil involve a bottle with greasy marks (have you seen a bottle of oil which isn’t greasy?) and a scent. Personally, I’m stunned by the aroma – there’s no suffocating smell of extracted nuts. The scent is unusual and pleasant – I treat Nanoil as a hair (aroma)therapy. 😉

Last but not least…

… my boyfriend is stealing my Nanoil!

The last thing, it has surprised me: my boyfriend uses my Nanoil for his beard care 🙂 I have one hot woodsman at home now 🙂 His beard looks really cool – softer and manageable (his words) and not as dry and stiff as it used to be (my words lol).

Do you know Nanoil hair oil? Do you use it? How does it work for your hairdo? Don’t your boyfriends need a beard oil? Leave your comments 🙂

    Same here. Curling my hair is a complete waste of time. The hair is straight again after 2 hours

  2. Ole!

    It is hard to do anything with such hair

  3. Luna

    I had nanoil for high porosity hair and I managed to regenerate the hair after bleaching

  4. Justine

    I have already used a number of oils but no other smelled as good as this one.

    • Karo1214

      The scent is beautiful and very gentle. Before, I had one of the Indian oils that were to boost har growth but I couldn’t stands the smell of it.

  5. AlexAlexanda

    I tried applying castor oil a few times and I was completely disappointed. The hair still reasy even after a few washes.

  6. Aria

    My hair doesn’t like leave-in cosmetics at all, my hair is flat even without it.

    • Camile

      I have a similar situation, every leave-in conditioner overburdens the hair. I have this oil for a while now and I liked it at first..use. After shampooing you don’t have the feellig that the hair is heavy, on the contrary the hair is soft and lightweight.

  7. Annie

    I have low porosity hair. It’s a disaster! I am bound to straight hair for life.

  8. MK

    the price as for a professional cosmetics is reasonable so I think I’ll give it a go 😉

  9. Katherine

    For me, aplying coconut oil is enough and it gives a nice effects

    • miss_piggy

      I’m using coconut oil too but I think it’s not half as good as this one. Out of all the oils I had, nanoil turns out the best

  10. Pattie

    I use passion fruit oil for hair oiling…but I am going to try out other oils too. This one seems promising but the price a bit discourging

    • miss_piggy

      in this case, the price is adequate to the quality

  11. Missy

    I had this oil just the version for high porosity hair and I was amazed with the results. I’m sure I’ll buy it once again! it did a great job at saving my split ends

  12. Agnes

    I uses an oil once and the effects did not knocked my socks off. I more of a traditional conditioner and regular masks kind of person

  13. Ivy

    For me hair oiling is the best way to regenerate the hair. I think that hair conditioners do not do anything special with the hair and that thanks to oils, hair becomes soft and maintain fresh for longer

  14. Alice P.

    For me the one for medium porosity should be perfect.

  15. Caroline29

    I have nanoil for a month now and so far I can see that after the application, my hair is weightless and softer:) in general, it looks great and does not need washing so often.
