We asked the question “What are your favorite oils?” on our Facebook page and these oils ranked top 5

Coconut oil was the number one choice of our curl friends and it is honestly one of my favorites. Sometimes our hair needs a little extra tender loving care beyond what we normally do. There’s no doubt that moisturizing is already a part of your regular routine, but allowing coconut oil to sit on your hair for a lengthy time will do wonders for issues with dryness.

Extra virgin olive oil is rich in high levels of mono-unsaturated fatty acids and vitamin E, an antioxidant important for hair growth.  Olive oil is a fantastic conditioner for hair.

Jamaican Black Castor Oil is a miracle oil for hair growth. Massage castor oil on your scalp and it can help to increase circulation. The strengthening effect it has on hair follicles can stimulate hair growth in cases of alopecia, or hair loss.

Jojoba Oil has amazing properties that can prove extremely useful for most of the modern day hair problems, such as dandruff, hair loss, dryness of hair and split ends. Jojoba oil is an effective scalp cleanser. Use it as a hot oil treatment before shampooing to give your hair a moisture boost.

Sweet Almond Oil works great as a sealant because it locks in moisture.  Almond Oil nourishes hair, smoothes hair cuticles to control shedding, promotes hair growth and thickness, prevents hair loss, and most importantly it BOOSTS SHINE.
