Hello people. Long time no blog! It’s been so long and I definitely have missed writing here. Do not blame me in anyway…blame our unreasonable educational system. One of the major questions I get every time from Naturalists is the question on what oils they are to use. Some would even ask: “Which one is the koko oil that I can’t do without? It is only that one I want to buy”. I must say this, there are so many oils out there and they all perform different functions. It’s the same way we have different types of food that do different things to the body. It all depends on how much value you place on your hair and how far you are willing to go for your hair. Today I’ll be talking about some of the oils we need. Not exactly that we cannot do without them, but they are all vital for our hair growth. You don’t need to have all of them. But three or more should do. Coconut Oil I would not dwell so much on this oil. We all know coconut oil. We all should have coconut oil. It is a must have. Apart from the fact that it is healthy it is also economical. It is the oil that just saves us from so much stress. Shea Butter The most economical hair moisturizer that is out there is Shea butter. We cannot do without this. It is not just used for hair treatment but also for smooth and beautiful skin. Shea butter helps softens our hair, enhance our curls, moisturize and give our hair the shine it deserves. Jojoba Oil So this is not your everyday everywhere oil. Jojoba oil is as old as time but not as common here in Africa as much as coconut or olive oil is. It is a thick oil, it can be waxy. It is used to seal in moisture which in turn repairs damaged hair cuticle in turn reduces breakage and encourages hair growth. Carrot Oil One of the most enriched oils you can lay your hands on is the carrot oil. It is rich in minerals and vitamins {if original though}. And when all that goodness gets into your hair, you can only but imagine how healthy your hair would get. Castor Oil This oil is very similar in function to the jojoba oil. Since it readily available and more economical than the jojoba oil. It is the best alternative to turn to. The castor oil is thick and rich in texture and content. I always recommend castor oil to every naturalist. Olive Oil And the lifesaver. Olive oil. Olive oil is gotten from olive seed. Olive contains essential minerals and vitamins which helps our hair to grow better. It has a lighter texture when compared to coconut or castor oil but nevertheless it is one of the most essential oils that you must own as a naturalist. Lavender Oil  Lavender oil is an essential. It has proven its value over time. Lavender oil is used for treatments of hair and skin. Most of the acute hair and scalp issues e.g. itchy scalp, dandruff and all sort can be treated with lavender oil. In conclusion I would say that there are so many oils out there, from Avocado to Tea Tree, Lemongrass, Argan, Orange, Peppermint, Rosemary and so many more. If you would love a part 2 of this post kindly state it in the comments. And if you would love a more detailed explanation on each oil, its functions and how to tell its authenticity when you are to purchase one. Kindly let me know in the comments. I’m looking forward to an awesome September with you. xoxo
