We cannot even begin to mention the benefit of organic oils.
Just know you need them if you ever want beautiful healthy long hair. They have tons and tons of benefit and it depends on the particular oil/oils being used and how they are being used. Below is a list of their benefits.
1. Olive oil (extra virgin).
It is a natural conditioner: It penetrates the hair shaft better than some other oils and nourishes, softens, and strengthens the hair. Olive oil also has an anti-inflammatory property that helps rid the hair of dandruff and product build-up on the scalp. It also assists in reducing hair loss by fortifying the hair against any kind of wear and tear. Add it to your spray bottle mix to help keep your hair moisturized throughout the week.
2. Coconut oil (pure & unrefined).
This oil contains monounsaturated fatty acids and vitamin E, which both help promote hair growth and length retention, decrease breakage, and strengthen the hair. It also consists of hydrophobic properties that help prevent the swelling of the strands and also aids with keeping moisture sealed into your hair by creating a barrier.
Use as a pre-poo or mixed into your favorite conditioner because it will naturally help melt the tangles out of your hair.
3. Avocado oil.
Jam-packed with vitamins A, B, D, and E, protein, amino acids, magnesium, iron, copper, folic acid and fatty acids, avocado oil is superb for protecting and preventing damage to the hair. It also helps the hair lock in moisture and protects your strands against sun damage.
Add avocado oil to your shampoo will treat dry, itchy scalp and adding it to your conditioner will give you excellent slip to make detangling a breeze.
4. Castor oil (Jamaican black)
Castor oil consists of unsaturated fatty acids, vitamin E, protein, and minerals that work together to make it one of the best oils for boosting hair growth. This unrefined and nutrient-rich oil increases blood flow to the scalp, resulting in thicker, stronger, and longer hair.
This oil is super thick so a little goes a long way. Apply it to your edges to get them in tip top shape. If you find that your hair is dry, brittle, prone to breakage, or balding in any areas, Jamaican Black Castor Oil is a great natural way to combat all of these issues.
5. Jojoba oil (pure & unrefined)
Jojoba oil doesn’t always get as much “shine” (no pun intended) as it deserves. It is great for addressing dry scalp but also hair loss, and in preventing split ends. What’s great is that jojoba mimics your hair’s own natural oil (sebum) which causes your strands to respond quite positively by absorbing it into the hair shaft, which results in more moisturized and shinier hair.
Excellent when used in deep conditioners because it helps the hair bounce back, especially from heat styling. Since it is a lightweight oil, it may be a good choice for low porosity naturals.
6. Tea tree oil.
A lifesaver to disinfecting the scalp so that hair doesn’t smell bad and sweat isn’t trapped in my scalp’s pores.
Best for keeping post-workout hair extra clean when you don’t have the time or desire to co-wash during the week.
The best thing about oil for natural hair is that you don’t need them all at the same time but the more you have, the better! All of them are versatile and beneficial for the hair. Try one, try them all, and watch your hair prosper.
