Oils: New and Old

Hey HHJ loves I hope all is going well, this post is really about oils I recently found a place in Jamaica that sells some really cheap oils both carrier and essential oils and I’m excited to go there and try some. Now my dilemma is this I wanna try so much oils I already know that I love castor oil love love love love the stuff. I love coconut oil I use it and a mixture of olive oil and castor oil to oil my scalp and I have tried jojoba oil but it was the one from ORS and contains mineral oil and alla that stuff so I’m excited to try the all natural version. Now I have been researching down the place I have been watching youtube videos everything to find out which oils are the best and the ones I wanna try. Now what I wanna do is use each oil one at a time to determine if my hair likes it or not and not just make this big concoction like everyone else does and then not know what wat does. So what I have decided to do is buy JBCO as I really love the stuff like love love love it and my old bottle is finished. I have coconut oil for days I bought this big one that I keep in my fridge and I have not even halfed it as yet not even quarter. So the oils I wanna try is I wanna get some more EVOO as it is almost out. So I wanna get some JBCO, EVOO, Avocado Oil I researched a great deal on it and I like what I have found hopefully my hair likes it, Grapeseed Oil and Vitamin E oil. I also wanna get some Aloe Vera and some vegetable glycerin. Now what I decided to do is just oil my hair with JBCO to get that thickness out there and I will make a mixture of all the oils and use it to seal my hair. And then to determine the benefits of each oil to my hair is to use them differently when I’m pre pooing/ doing hot oil treatments each time I wash my hair to determine if my hair likes it or not.  Here is just a little info I found on the net about the oils I am currently trying or going to try. I am realy not gonna try any essential oils as yet like Tea Tree oil or Lavender or Eucalyptus I’ll try that later on in my hair journey I just need to find out which oils I love first.

  • Avocado Oil – Avocado oil is a sweet and nutty oil that has a thick consistency and green color. It is full of vitamins that your hair loves like vitamins A, E, D and potassium. It is said to be nourishing to hair and is great for sealing moisture into our hair or as an additive to any conditioner for an extra boost.  oils and you will definitely feel and see the difference.
  • Jojoba Oil – Jojoba oil is a golden yellow medium consistency oil that has a light and pleasant scent. Jojoba is one of the only oils that can penetrate the scalp and hair shaft and can be used to add moisture to your hair and scalp. Jojoba is very identical to sebum – the natural oil that lubricates our skin and hair, and can be applied as sebum replacement for individuals with dry scalp issues. It can also be used on people with oily scalp to eliminate excess sebum and accumulation from the hair.
  • Olive Oil – Olive oil is a thick green or golden-yellow oil that has a distinct olive smell. Extra virgin olive oil is preferred for hair use, since it is cold pressed and does not contain any chemicals. Olive oil can be used to treat dandruff, tame frizzy hair, add shine, increase manageability, and soften hair.
  • Coconut Oil – Coconut oil is a fragrant oil that is solid at room temperature and liquid when heated. Coconut oil is one of the best oils for hair since it can be used in many different ways. It can be used to treat hair loss and dandruff, mend split ends, condition hair, helps retain moisture, and helps to reduce protein loss in hair.
  • Castor Oil – Castor oil is an extremely thick vegetable oil that is colorless to very pale yellow liquid with mild or no odor. It nourishes hair and helps to seal moisture, softens, and visibly thickens hair. Castor oil is also said to stimulate growth, so many naturals use it to regrow problem areas such as bald spots or their hairline by doing scalp massages.
