A Strengthening And Nourishing Oil Mix For Your Healthy Hair Journey

Pages: 1 2

African american woman with natural hair smiling with eyes closedThere’s nothing more gratifying in your hair growth journey than when a random stranger stops you in the street to admire your hair and ask you about it.

This happens to me on occasion, except when I go out in my Miss Celie braids (I wonder why that is?). Aside from the wonderful confirmation of all the hard work I’ve put into my hair, I actually really enjoy a little chinwag about all things hair with perfect strangers!

If it ever happens to you, you will notice a few questions that tend to pop up more often than others. An FAQ of hair care if you will.

You are likely to get the standard How long did it take you to grow your hair, Are you mixed?, So how do you get your hair curly like that etc. You are also likely to get What do you put in your hair?

Now as a black woman, you will understand that this particular question has little to do with which shampoo or conditioner you use.

Nope, the average unenlightened black women doesn’t think that anything as ‘useless’ as conditioner ever made a difference to anyone’s hair. They want to know which grease you use gurl!

I will pause here a minute to reminisce about a time when I was about 15 years old. I was so convinced that greasing your scalp was the absolute best hair care practice that my friend and I resolved to grease our scalps every night to grow our hair long.

I don’t remember how long we actually kept it up for but my hair never did get longer than shoulder length throughout high school so clearly it never made much of a difference.

Now that I’m all grown up and after doing away with the myth that you need ‘certain products’ in order to grow your hair long and healthy, I certainly know better. Many of us however are still left with trying to wade through the confusing world of hair care products.

Trying to decide between the winners and losers of the hair oils can be extremely daunting for those unused to reading ingredients in hair products or those who simply don’t know how these oils benefit our hair.

As your knowledge about hair products increases, you may find yourself yourself in possession of a fair few oils but still wondering how exactly to use them in your regimen. Should you use the coconut oil for pre-pooing or sealing? How about the JBCO, EVOO, and which oils exactly penetrate the hair shaft?

Well, the following simple nourishing oil mix is a staple product in my hair regimen. The recipe combines three of my favorite oils in a convenient way so that I am able to use it for pre-pooing, oil rinsing or sealing in moisture without resorting to using a different oil for each activity.

Because of the oils contained in the mix, it is also one of the best oil mixes you can use on your hair for strength and elasticity.

    I use EVOO and peppermint oil as my mixing oil stable and my hair is moisturized and healthy. I always wanted to try coconut oil, so will coconut and peppermint oil work good together?

    Hi. I was wondering what other product can I use if I can’t find wheat germ oils? Thanks for the information. I love using EVOO but never thought of combining with coconut oil. Will definitely try out. Thanks :)

    I’ve actually had this same problem. The coconut oil I purchased was virgin oil from a health food store but still it would dry and become white when put on my hair. This is even after melting it. Once the oil returns to room temp I notice that my ends are left hard with the white oil.
