7 Best Oils for Natural Hair

• Jun 4, 2012

By Dr. Phoenyx Austin

You don’t always have to buy fancy, big name hair products for your hair. Sometimes the best products are actually very simple and found in your local Whole Foods store. What are these simple hair products? Well they’re natural oils. I’m a natural haired woman and know first-hand that natural oils are amazing for hair. They work wonders on my hair. And I’ve been using natural oils for years to make my hair softer, shinier, and even stronger. Basically hair needs oil. So be sure to check out these 7 fabulous natural oils for natural hair.

Avocado Oil

Avocado oil is particularly great for natural hair. It’s loaded with nutrients, amino acids, essential fatty acids, as well as vitamins A, B, D, and E. And it’s excellent for moisturizing, deep conditioning, improving hair strength, strengthening hair, and boosting shine.

Castor Oil

Castor oil thickens hair, promotes hair growth, prevents thinning, moisturizes, helps reduce split ends, helps to tame frizz, and prevents scalp infections.

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is great for preventing dandruff, promoting hair growth, moisturizing, strengthening hair, thickening hair, and preventing damage.

Olive Oil (Extra Virgin Olive Oil)

I LOVE using olive oil. And olive oil, which is also referred to as the “godmother of hair oil,” is great for moisturizing, deep conditioning, improving hair strength, eliminating dandruff, and also has powerful antioxidants that can help fight hair loss.

Rosemary Oil

Rosemary oil is great for stimulating hair follicles for hair growth, preventing hair loss and greying, preventing dandruff, strengthening hair, and boosting shine.

Safflower Oil

Safflower oil protects hair, nourishes hair follicles, moisturizes, and stimulates blood circulation to promote hair growth and thickness. And it is extremely beneficial for natural as well as dry chemically treated hair.

Sweet Almond Oil

Sweet almond oil works great as a “sealant.” This means that it “locks-in” moisture. Sweet almond oil also nourishes hair, smoothes hair cuticles to control shedding, promotes hair growth and thickness, prevents hair loss, and boosts shine.

Ladies, which of these oils do you use? And which are your favorites?

I use EVOO, Coconut, Rosemary, and Peppermint oils. I love them. I think I’ll reintroduce Avocado oil to my mixture.

And macadamia nut oil! I use it as a gloss and after a little while my hair feels so silky. It’s especially good whn mixed with avacado oil and applied on damp hair. It’s my miracle soft leave in conditioner.

I’ve used every oil on this list except for Safflower and Rosemary and I’ve LOVED THEM. Castor oil and coconut oil are my current staples.

I use Avocado, Olive and Cocunut Oils sometimes, but I wouldn’t want to live without my Argan Oil. It seems to moisturize my hair the best and makes it soft.

Avocado oil makes my hair feel amazing. Its also great for skin!

Have you ever tried Hibiscus Oil? My hardresser (who mainly deals with only natural hair) makes it herself, and it’s great!! Fantastic at repairing damaged hair, and promoting/maintaining healthy, strong hair.

Castor Oil!! Jamaican Black is my fav. Its amazing how you can use these oils for many different purposes. Hair, skin, cooking “huge fan of cooking with coconut and olive oil. The oils are really good for self body massage for the circulatory and lymphatic systems. Oils are very ancient have been used for thousand upon thousands of years…

Actually would I love to look some other natural oils that are great for hair but are relatively new popularity even though they been used for hundreds of years.: Camellia oil (aka tea seed oil), and Argan oil. The general consenses I find lots of women seem to love Camellia oil for its benefits of olive oil and ability to leave the oil very soft but not oily also it believe to be the hair oil of choice for Geisha of the past and currently sumo wrestlers as well. Though Kukui Nut Oil has also get mention as well. Personally… Read more »

Wheat germ oil has natural ceramides! so if you have fine and/or porous hair check it out!

Tyler

I can’t believe tea tree oil isn’t on this list! I would have the itchiest scalp without it.

Bernadette
Guest

I love me some Olive and Coconut oils. Occasionally, I will use castor oil and I also have Vatkia (which I think is coconut mixed with other oils? — not sure).

Olive oil is used for detangling and removing shed hairs.
Coconut oil is used in my pre-poo and sometimes sealing my hair.
Castor oil is in my leave-in conditioner.

I many need to give avocado oil a try!

I use Mustard seed oil to nourish my hair. I wasn’t really looking for anything that would help it grow just to help protect it from everyday damage. But since I’ve started using it my hair is the longest its ever been. Mustard seed oil is loaded with vitamins and minerals such as zinc, selenium, and beta carotene. Beta carotene converts to vitamin A, which is excellent in stimulating hair growth. The oil also has a lot of fatty acides, iron, calcium, and some magnesium. Thus, it conditions and helps encourage hair growth in all hair types. You can get… Read more »

Hi Lara, I’ve heard a few people swear by mustard seed oil. How do you use it?

Iara
Guest

If I’m wearing my hair curly after washing, conditioning and towel drying my hair I just rub some into my hair and style. I’ve also read about people using it as a hot oil treatment and then washing it out, but I like to leave it in. Its also great on the skin!!!

My hair HATESSS coconut oil! It’s been sort of a drag finding products without it. I mainly use Castor Oil and Avocado Oil to massage my scalp and to help growth. I started using the mix on my scalp after seeing how quickly both helped to grow in my eyebrows ALOT quicker than usual. I will check out Mustard seed Oil also thanks to the post above! I use EVOO and Grapeseed Oil (AMAZING also!) to deep condition and seal…I usually mix either with Jane Carter’s Nourish and Shine butter to make it smoother. One thing I’ve noticed is that… Read more »

Dear Editor:

Where can I find these oils @ ?????

mangomadness
Guest

You can purchase various oils from health food stores [WholeFoods, Vitamin Shoppe, GNC, etc.], online vendors [amazon.com, iherb.com, etc] and grocery stores [big mainstream chains, African, Caribbean, South Asian, etc]

Rou
Guest

You can purchase most of them at Vitacost.com, too! They have great prices and the shipping is reasonable!

skb natural
Guest

coconut, EVOO,almond, rosemary.…i also use tea tree, peppermint, argan …i totally love the way my hair feels

Nbwhite
Guest

These are all good suggestions, but when it comes down to it you must use what works for your hair best.

mangomadness
Guest

Coconut oil and castor oil are my staple oils for hair care. I use coconut oil as a pre-shampoo detangler/conditioner and castor oil to seal my ends and edges.

ladyluo
Guest

Castor oil is a staple. Really love it for my hair. Sweet almond does nothing for my hair. Rosemary oil is also necessary for my hair to stimulate my scalp in addition to peppermint. My hair hates coconut oil. I would like to try avocado oil, apricot kernel and macadamia nut oil.

Alecia
Guest

You can purchase some of these oils at http://www.outerbeautysupply.com. Coconut Oil, Jojoba Oil and Jamaican Black Castor is my staple oils.

brenda whaley

Iuse vatika oil, mustard oil, almond oil castor oil and evoo. Makes my hair thick and soft.

Annetta
Guest

I’ve heard that some oils can make the hair break! Anyone heard of this?

Ashes
Guest

yes actually. Coconut oil does nothing for me. my hair did indeed break. but I have good results with extra virgin olive oil and jojoba oil. some oils are thicker than others, it really is a trial and error type thing.I found that jojoba and olive are just heavy enough, but not too runny. hope this helps.

Earth Angel

LOVE! All of these oils are available at Mountain Rose herbs—one of my fav sites for Carrier Oils and Essential Oils! The first is for the carrier oils—the second is for Rosemary Essential Oil 🙂 Enjoy!

Oils make my hair hard and dry when used on wet hair. I have to use an oil based butter like Qhemet Amla and Olive Heavy Cream.

Fernanda

Here in the Amazon, we use the local oils such as cupuaçu (cupuassuh) butter and babaçu (babassuh) oil. Makes workers to curly hair and are deep moisturizing!

Am I the only one who feels like all oils are the same?? I’ve used a wide variety of oils (from cocoonut to avocado, rosemary, sweet almond, apricot, jojoba, castor and many more) but I don’t feel like any one of them stands out or gives me better resultst han the other…they’re just there.

Rou
Guest

Until I tried both avocado oil and castor oil, my hair was as dry as the Sahara desert. Since then, my hair does not look or feel dry anymore. Moisture balance problem solved! 🙂 If your hair is extremely dry, try castor oil or avocado oil. They are magnificent!

luminous
Guest

My favorite is jojoba oil. But I also use coconut, castor, and argan oils.

napturallyM3
Guest

Coconut oil makes my hair hard & caused my skin to break out. I didnt find Vatka oil nourishing for my hair. Qhemet Castor oil/serum provides shine & controls frizz. Qhemet hydrate & twist butter does a great job sealing in moisture & providing shine.

Theresa
Guest

Coconut, olive oil and castor oil.…I just purchased some sweet almond oil and will have to add rosemary oil to my list.

KaraJ

Well coconut and castor oil are great for my hair, I also started using grapeseed oil and olive oil.

lillian mae

I have used all but the avocado oil and use primarily castor, olive, and coconut oils. I like to use olive and coconut oils the must because they are versatile and can by use for the skin and hair. I also make rosemary herbal hair oil infusions by taking fresh rosemary and combining it with 1 part olive oil, 1 part coconut oil. I let the concoction sit in a dark place for up to 6 weeks and I shake it once weekly. I then strain using cheese cloth. Thus an awesome oil is born, right in my kitchen. I… Read more »

I use castor, coconut, olive and sweet almond oil. I love them all. I have never used rosemary oil or safflower oil, but of course I’ll have to try them out. I’m loving my natural hair journey so far, it’s been a year now since my BC.

wow. for my part of the world, some of these oils are obscure. i have a rule if i can’t get it in the supermarket, i’ll have to do without it. on a time and money budget and availability and quantity are the two main factors.

I’ve only used coconut and EVOO but I want to try others, especially argan oil. Just don’t know what brand to use

You can try Sunny Isle Organic Argan oil or Tropic Isle newly released argan oil, which contains Jamaican Black Castor Oil. I list the check for you to check them out:

Sunflower Seed Oil
Safflower Seed Oil
Avocado Oil
Sesame Oil
Sapote Oil
Jojoba Oil
Macademia Nut Oil
Coffe Essential Oil

Alexandra
Guest

Coffee essential oil? Hmmm (tapping my chin thinking), that’s new. I’m assuming it may be a stimulant because of the caffeine. Have you ever mixed with a carrier oil by itself to see the actual benefits of it?…I guess what I’m really trying to ask is what are the benefits? I may have to try this.

J

Hi Alexandra! I use Creamy Cafe Latte by Anita Grant and Coffe Essential Oil is in there and works great for my hair! I hope that helps.

It can be purchased in the US :

As a 8 month natural (woohoo!), I have tried many products. I have found that my 4a/4b hair can only take very light amounts of oil. I LOVE coconut oil to use in an oil rinse and I prepoo with honey, castor oil, olive oil, and grapeseed oil. During the week, I primary moisturize with just water and whipped shea butter. If I use oil, it will be just a drop on each section.

There’s nothing worse than having overly greasy hair that leaves oil stains everywhere! lol

thank you for the info, very useful, I use a good product to repair my hair, it’s Pro Naturals Moroccan Argan Oil which works amazing, it protects my hair, makes it stronger and keeps it soft, shiny, frizz less and healthy. 😀

I am going from using perms to natural without doing the big cut. My question is are these oils good for my hair as my perm has not grown out yet?

Thanks

Marie
Guest

Hi Rochelle J, Well done on transtioning! 🙂 All the oils above a great for you.They can be used as a pre-poo before you wash you hair to prevent your hair being stripped, as a sealant on a daily basis and also to add shine.
What i woould suggest is having two oils your hair loves my top two are Olive Oil and Coconut Oil. HTH 🙂

I’m a HUGE fan of EVOO. I cook with it, use it in body scrubs and my hair sees it by the gallon. I have recently fallen in love with Sweet Almond oil. I use it for massage and it’s really nice. I am just now starting to get back into using coconut oil. I am not sure why I stopped, but my hair is loving it. I can totally vouch for castor oil and growing edges.. HELLO! My edges were just starting to slowly come back when I BC’d, and after I started putting castor oil on my edges…… Read more »
*Muffin*
Guest

My staple oils that I can’t function without are Coconut oil, Castor oil, and Olive oil. I use coconut oil as a sealing oil, glosser, and scalp oil, Castor oil I use on my scalp after washing, and I mix olive oil in my deep conditioners.

*Muffin*
Guest

Oh, I forgot to mention I also use coconut and olive oil on my face. I usually mix a little olive oil in my f racial treatments and coconut oil is what I use as a facial moisturizer. I also cook with those oils. Love ‘em!

askvivi
Guest

Thanks for the info! Argan oil is great for your hair, I use Pro Naturals Moroccan Argan Oil and my hair is looking shiny, smooth and healthy, plus this stuff has a heat protector to keep my hair safe when I heat style 🙂

Bridget

I like coconut, grapeseed, jojoba and olive oils; they really make a difference.

andrea
Guest

I use a combination of Coconut Oil, Grapeseed Oil, EVOO, and Emu Oil

staciejo
Guest

Peppermint oil works the same as rosemary oil.

Chrysanthemum
Guest

Coconut oil and castor oil work wonders for my hair. I mix castor, jojoba and grapeseed oil and use on my skin. Helps keep the cost of hair products down and much better for your hair than all the manufactured products that claim to have all these ingredients.

ALushie
Guest

Olive Oil, Castor Oil, & Coconut Oil are my three faves! I also love using Jojoba and Peppermint Oils as well.

Love.

Lin
Guest

I use tea tree, coconut, lavender and rose oil. I never see anyone talking about rose oil, and I just don’t know why. When I use it correctly, it kills my frizz, plus it smells nice. (If you’re like me and think smelling like a “grandma” is wonderful.)

Chantel
Guest

I use an Extra Virgin Olive Oil/Extra Virgin Coconut Oil mix (50/50) as a deep conditioner, twice a month. These are the only oils I use, since I’ve found out less is more with my hair. Love them!

ShaiLov
Guest

What if i mixed all these together into one bottle , has anyone ever done that ?

Recie
Guest

I am on alot of medication because I am on dialysis, recently my hair has been thinning alot, do you still recommend using one of these oils, and if so which do you recommend.

bspycee
Guest

I mix all of them together and use it to seal after I spritz my hair with water. Naptural85 mixes her oils also and Blackonynx sells a 17 essential oil similar to all oils posted.

J
Guest

Hi Recie,to be on the safe side it would be best to check with your Doctor as some of these oils are stimulants like Tea Tree,Peppermint,Rosemary,Castor Oil(is a laxative when ingested).I hope that helps 🙂

Rochelle J
Guest

Hello Ladies,
Yesterday was the first time I used EVOO as a deep conditioner on my hair.. I must say it feels good.. so I will continue to use it and try the other oils to see what works best for my hair…

QUESTION FOR YOU, WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON WEN HAIR PRODUCTS? Anyone try this

Steph
Guest

I’ve never used it but I’ve heard of a lot of people having hair loss issues from using Wen

BERLY
Guest

excuse me ask, but how can to use oil as a deep conditioner? i mean.. do u wash it out?

william
Guest

I a male with a shoulder lenght hair i used wen conditioner in my hair over thanks giving holiday i added no extra product to my hair for five days layed down so nice my hair was flowing its pricey but worth an experiment typically i wear my hair as an afro i was easily using a paddle brush to style

Adri
Guest

Wen is awesome bit kind of expensive

Maranda
Guest

I tried Wen on my permed hair & it left it dry & kinda stiff. … My mom tried it on her natural hair & said it is so sticky & heavy that I need to throw it away.

Natalie
Guest

The only two oils I don’t have on that list are safflower and avocado but I do have avocado butter, product junky alert, lol.

I don’t really notice a difference with the oils I use, my hair doesn’t like coconut on it’s own so I’m using that up by adding it to my deep conditoners. I’m worried some of my oils will go off before I have the chance to use them.

LWalker
Guest

put the stuff in the fridge 🙂

Natalie
Guest

Hey Maranda,

I wanted to say don’t throw out that oil just mix it with a lighter oil maybe 80% light oil and 20% Wen. No need to waste it, I’m sure it was expensive or at least give it away.

Tab
Guest

I have unrelaxed hair. It is a fine,spongy, soft, kinky texture. I’ve been wearing my hair braided for a long time and wearing wigs. Well I just had my hair washed, conditioned, blow dried and straightened with a flat iron. I notice thinning/maybe balding in the front and top of my head. Depressing and sad because I love natural hair and haven’t had a relaxer in over 10 years. I want to try the oils to see if they work. Has anyone tried any of the oils for thinning/balding? Did they work and which ones did you use if so?

Merinofro
Guest

@Tab… Castor oil is the one to get hair growing in thicker/ fuller… You can even put it on your lashes. Women have been using it that way for centuries…

Tab
Guest

@Merinofro…Thank you! I will try the Castor oil. I pray it works for me. 🙂 (i’m going to try it on my eye lashes too)

Erica
Guest

My favs for my hair are jojoba, coconut and rosemary essential oils. My skin loves coconut, jojoba and avocado oils. I have made a mixture of oils including a few not mentioned here and added to Shea butter to use as a sealant for my hair. Oils for the body and hair are a Godsend and have greatly reduced my eczema outbreaks. I customize oils depending upon the season and my needs.

Latitia
Guest

Hi, I also have eczema as well and recently found the Moroccan oil Argan is amazing in the sun, keeps you moisturised and is feather-light but I’m always interested in hearing other peoples remedies, can I ask what oils do you have in your mixture and how long have you been using it?

Andrea
Guest

Hey everyone, I have dreads and olive oil is the only product is use in my hair other than shampoo. But when I do oil my hair it messes up my sheets and this discourages me from oiling my hair. Do you all have any problems with this? Sometimes I put a towel by my head so that my sheets don’t mess up but the texture is not comfortable on my face. Any suggestions?

Bree
Guest

try wearing a bonnet or wrap around your hair at night, make sure its satin or silk, cloth ones will suck all the oil you just put in your hair right out.

Kim
Guest

I use a combination of Jamaican black castor, extra virgin olive, and rosemary oils. Sometimes I put it on just as I am about to shower, put a plastic cap on my head and use it as a hot oil treatment;other times I use it as a styling oil…

i started using coconut oil two and half wks ago on my frontline hair dat is receeding and i ve notice a little improvement which is impressive but d new growing hair is nt full/thick. I plan to get castor oil but i can only get d one for laxative, can i go ahead to use it?

vivienne
Guest

Permalink, castor has different uses. The one use as a laxative is the same as the one for the hair. Do not hesitate. Castor oil is one of the oils that grips or penetrates my hair. It is thicker , more elastic and the new growth is massive. Do not hesitate to use on hair and scalp and thin eye brows and short eyelashes. Hope this helps

LWalker
Guest

Castor oil definitely has different uses and yes if its all you have then use the laxative one but if you can swing it try to get the cold pressed castor oil or the jamaican black they are better because they are pure the laxative does not have all the nutrients left in it 🙂

I am “middle-aged”, early 50’s actually, and am experiencing menopause. On the female line of my family we women begin the process of male patterned baldness… most unfortunate when at the time of your life you are trying to maintain what you know of yourself as woman. So not only is my hair completely gray, but it is at least 1/2 the thickness it ever was and receding along the crown, def the temple and at the top middle part of my head.

I think you should talk to your doctor and have your hormones checked Catherine. Sounds like you need to be on a short-term course of hormone rebalancers until you are through menopause and your body equilibrium has restabilized. Certain herbs might exacerbate the problem since there is no way of knowing which hormones are out of balance — though it sounds like estrogen has decreased and testosterone has increased. Make sure to check your diet: think about going RAW (raw foods, 75% of diet) or VEGAN (fresh fruits and vegetables). Americans eat too many animal products which are loaded with… Read more »

Thank you Vivienne — I was about ask the same question — it has been 2 plus months since I started the castor oil challenge — everyday, I have been massaging regular castor oil into my scalp, particularly in those areas where there is male patterned baldness, this is after cowashing my hair, etc. Then I top off with African Shea butter in my hair. I have also been taking Hair, Skin Nail vitamins and Fish Oil pills daily. I have changed my diet — drinking more water, green tea, lemon water, ginger tea, or rooibus tea in the evening… Read more »
vivienne

There is a lot at play. First use the essential oils that have estrogenic effects on the scalp such as lavender or tea tree. Use castor oil shea butter and rosemary. Use shampoo with ketoconazole an anti fungal agent because fungal infection can destroy your hair. Massage scalp often. Try Follicure on scalp not cheap can use pure aloe vera as alternative. Change your diet to include more sea food add glucosamine 1.5gram . Try a good multivitamin B , D, may be lacking. Avoid alcohol like the plaque. Exercise over time will boost blood supply.Basically all is not lost… Read more »

Do the oil and leave in conditioner thing and do bantu twists. In the morning if the hair is dry it should be straiter softer and smoother. You must keep the new growth hydrated sof n free, stay sof fro when transitioning this is when the hair can break. Castor oil is good a softening hair

I use argan oil, I was hoping to find it on that list. I think it’s lighter than most oils and it just has more benefits for hair, or so I have read. Has anyone else used it? I’m using one called pro naturals moroccan argan oil, I ordered it online and it’s really made my hair softer and shinier, I don’t have to wash it out either. I mean it’s not even greasy!

Good Morning, thanks for sharing the above information. I’m newbie; I started transitioning from a perm to back to my natural hair in April of this year. How should the oils be used and does combining oils help or hurt? I would like to also know what’s good for thickening and getting my hair. I think my hair is curly/wavy/fine and seems to be thinner on the top. Thank you in advance for you help!

I’ve always wondered if being allergic to the real food would mean that I would have a reaction to the oil. I can’t eat almonds, so does that mean that I should stay away from the oil too?

I have Olive Oil, Argan Oil, and Castor Oil. Castor took out some of my hair(I hate writing that, makes it real). I had to stop using and grow back using only olive oil. I plan to buy Coconut and Avocado and some of the other oils soon. I really love Olive and Argan though. Olive is my friend, I used it for all of my needs. DCing, pre-pooing, scalp massaging, Hot Oil Treatments, sealing moisture daily, etc. It even moisturizes to a degree since it is one of the oils that penetrate the hair shaft(along with Coconut and Avocado).… Read more »

@donnab, how are you using the Coconut oil, castor oil, sweet almond oil on your hair? As a hot oil treatment, conditioner, daily moisturizer.…on wet or dry hair? I am currently using Coconut oil, castor oil, almond oil and extra virgin olive oil on both wet(as part of my wash and go)and dry hair(applied to scalp and ends)

I love coconut oil and olive oil for pre-poos and deep conditioning. For daily maintenance I use argon oil, grapeseed, and jojoba for moisture sealers. I use castor oil nightly on my edges which had thinned badly from braids and weaves.

I love Argan oil for my hair and skin. You can also add a few drops of an pleasantly scented essential oil (i.e., sweet orange, jasmine, Ylang Ylang, etc.) to the oil and massage it into your hair and your body. 🙂

Tamara

Hi Kenny, the oils can be left in. Some great oil mixtures are Cedarwood, Rosemary and Lavender. I prefer Young Living essential oils because they are100% therapeutic grade and can be taken orally. You don’t need to use too much; a few drops will help get the job done. I apply a mixture every day until I wash it out. It does not get heavy and washes out easily. But, everyone is different and you can wash it out when you believe it’s time for your hair to be washed. There is some trial and error but it’s fun and… Read more »

Tamara

Hi Sam, Young Living has many products that I think may help with migraine relief. They are Lavender, M-Grain, Panaway and and Peppermint. Here are the links to all four of these oils:

M-Grain: http://www.youngliving.com/essential-oil-blends/M-Grain. Another product is

Panaway: http://www.youngliving.com/essential-oil-blends/Panaway-5-Ml

Peppermint: http://www.youngliving.com/essential-oils/Peppermint

Lavender: http://www.youngliving.com/essential-oils/Lavender

You can use these alone or altogether. There may be some trial and error to see which works better for you, but these oils have so many uses that they will not go to waste. Please let me know if you’d like to order. Thanks. Tamara

bsbfankaren
Guest
It depends on your hair type. My daughter’s hair is 2c/3a and produces more than enough of it’s own natural oils, unlike mine which is 3c/4a and very dry. She adds a little argan oil after she washes and conditions and that’s all she needs. Anything more, and her hair is oily and limp. The products I purchase are completely natural, and contain a mixture of the oils listed. There are a number of Latina’s on YouTube with naturally curly hair. Find someone who’s hair is similar to your’s and see what that person is using. Good luck!
bsbfankaren
Guest

Oh, and dry a pre-poo with coconut oil or my favorite Amla/coconut or safflower oil (I get mine on Amazon.com but other sites geared toward Ayurvedic hair care do as well). It’s helped me alot with dry hair, and applying castor oil directly to an area at my crown that was thinning daily, brought back the hair I had lost.

Avocados are commercially valuable and are cultivated in tropical and Mediterranean climates throughout the world. They have a green-skinned, fleshy body that may be pear-shaped, egg-shaped, or spherical. Commercially, it ripens after harvesting.

In regards to your daughter it sounds like you could possibly be over proteinizing her hair. The oils are great but you will have to find a way to add moisture and balance between the moisture protein levels. My girls and I are all natural. I have two different textures straight in the front and coarse in the back. The girls hair is natural curly but the middle of their hair is more coarse than the rest of their hair.

bsbfankaren
Guest

As long as your child is healthy and eats well, it’s not about hair growth as you child’s hair is always growing, it’s about retaining the growth. Low manipulation styles help a lot, as do very carefully detangling and not braiding the hair tightly or pulling the hair tight when in a ponytail. This will allow your daughter to retain the growth she is already experiencing. There is no magic group of products that do more than what tender loving care of the hair will.

Hi, I add coconut oil to my skin during Summer and it works nicely. Like gyanvee said, a little goes a long way. Just rub some in the palm of your hand, rub your hands together so that it melts all the way (just in case you get the “solid” coconut oil) and rub it onto your hair. But make sure you put just a little; if you need more, then add a little more. Tamara

Summer days is the best time to apply coconut oil to the hair! Coconut Oil is a natural spf. Not only is it great for protecting your hair from the sun, but if you put it on your skin it will do the same! You get a healthy glow and you are spf protected!

I hope coconut oil doesn’t cause thinning because I’ve been using it everyday, with rosemary oil, on the areas of my hair that’s thinning. I also use coconut oil on my skin, and the trick is to apply it before you get in the shower, so that you can wipe the excess off when you get out. You also have to be careful with the oils that stimulate growth, because not only will they run down your face and neck, they create a burning sensation!! I learned that first hand on a hot humid day.

Jade
Guest

Does anyone know if using these oils on wet/damp hair before heat styling will actually CONTRIBUTE to the damage? Im sure I saw it mentioned somewhere.

Reason being, I recently had my hair yuko anti-frizz treated, but since I have naturally curly hair Im still having to blow dry it straight of a morning. So I need to spritz it damp. Was thinking of combining an oil to my spritz for added benefit, but since I will then be blow-drying I just wondered if oil and water shouldn’t really mix with heat as far as hair is concerned.

myso
Guest

Hey Jade,

Just in my personal opinion, I would say no to the water. I’ve flat ironed my hair damp before (permed and natural) and it usually results in excess drying, I think. Smoking up and all. Plus, since oil and water naturally separate, I doubt that mix will prove to be effective. I would avoid the morning blow drying since it sounds like excess heat and stress on the hair, but if you haven’t seen any negative results so far… Have you tried wrapping it and tying it down at night? That may help keep it straight a little more.

My thoughts are, there is no real need to make a super oil. Each oil is so awesome on its own, that combining them would only dilute their unique qualities. Try out the oils individually and determine which ones are you ultimate favorites. You may discover some you LOVE more than others. Also, it will keep the cost more reasonable. I myself, am down to using coconut oil and almond oil. I love these two because they smell fantastic, you can cook with them, eat them, put them on your skin, or your hair. I love that!
