Oils for Natural hair
You don’t always have to buy fancy, big name hair products for your hair. Sometimes, the best products for your hair can be found in the kitchen.
My rule of thumb is if I can eat it, I can put it on my hair. When used correctly, hair is softer, shinier and stronger after being coated with natural oil from your kitchen. Regardless of your hair’s texture, it needs oil to survive. Try out any one of these 6 oils that you might have lying around in your kitchen:
1. 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. Avocado oil also acts as a natural sunscreen, and helps to protect your hair and scalp from the harmful UV rays of the sun.
2. Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is great for preventing dandruff, promoting hair growth, moisturizing, strengthening hair, thickening hair, and preventing damage. It’s also a good detangler.
3. Castor Oil
Castor oil thickens hair, promotes hair growth, prevents thinning, moisturizes, helps reduce split ends, helps to tame frizz, and prevents scalp infections.
4. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Olive oil is great for moisturizing, deep conditioning, improving hair strength, eliminating dandruff, and also has powerful antioxidants that can help fight hair loss.
5. Grape seed oil
Grape seed oil is light and odourless. It seals, moisturizes, conditions and prevents dry a scalp.
6. Sweet Almond Oil
Sweet almond oil works great as a “sealant.” It locks in moisture, nourishes hair, smoothes hair cuticles to control shedding, promotes hair growth, thickens hair, prevents hair loss, and boosts shine
