A curly haired girl might not start off with much but, your oils? Extremely essential.
First of … Let’s just touch the subject in a general way.
Curly hair is naturally dry. Why, did you say? Well, our hair is coil-shaped right? Right. Our scalp naturally produces oil that goes from our roots to our ends, so imagine all those turns our coils form. You can already imagine that it’s not that simple.
Thus, there is a need to add on to that naturally produced oil. With not just any oil, vegetable oil. Yes, yes. Like for example olive oil and such. And no, not just any olive oil, that extra virgin one, now that’s the good one, which is pure olive oil.
So what are the benefits of oils for our hair;
Vegetable oil that is 100% natural, serves as a powerful moisturizer, can be used to combat frizz, hair loss and breakage, can encourage hair growth, fight and prevent dandruff. Yep, all that good stuff from just oils.
Examples of other oils that could be used for our hair would be:
- Sweet almond oil
- Coconut oil
- Jojoba oil
- Argan oil
- Castor oil
- Carrot oil
- Linseed oil
- Sunflower oil
- Macadamian oil
- Avocado oil
I think you get my drift. With time we will talk about the oils one by one and look at their benefits. Not all, but most of them.
Below are some oils that I use from a brazilian brand called Salon Line. I managed to buy a mix of different oils and oils beneficial for the summer. In summer, especially here in Mozambique, our hair becomes dry not just because of the scorching heat, but also because of the sun. And the best part is they smell really good.
