5 oils you should try on your natural hair

Hey naturalistas,

How is the week going?

It's been really busy over here. Anyways, here are 5 oils I think you should try on your natural hair and why.

1. Coconut oil: This oil is just the best. From the smell to the fact that it penetrates into my scalp easily. I know many people use this already, but if you have not, you should definitely try it. It's my favourite oil after peppermint. It softens hair and conditions the scalp. It also reduces hair breakage.

2. Castor oil: This oil helps in stimulating hair growth. If you have tried any oil for hair growth to no avail, you should try castor oil. Great for hair growth and sealing in moisture.

3. Jojoba oil: This is another oil that you should have. It is similar to our natural hair sebum and does not interfere in the scalp's natural balance. It is great for all hair types as it penetrates down into the scalp easily and strengthens the hair follicles.

4. Tea tree oil: This is ideal for those with dandruff or itchy scalp. I remember when my scalp suffered from dandruff. This was part of what helped me. It keeps the scalp free from bacterial and fungal problems. 

5. Peppermint oil: This oil gives one this tingly feeling that you would want to last for so long. It helps get rid of itchy scalp and increases the flow of blood on one's scalp. It nourishes the hair too.


That's about it all.

  4. I have oil minus Peppermint and Tea Tree. Funny enough, I prefer using the Jojoba on my skin cos it's soooooo light.

  6. Yet to try Jojoba and Peppermint Oil. Can't wait to make a peppermint infused hair oil since Eucalyptus oil, which I use does almost the same thing.

  7. Coconut oil is a no for me because I'm probably the only person that reacts to it and that is annoying. Yet to try peppermint oil.
