Hair Tidbit: Oil Solutions for the Hair

To start the week off, I have listed some of my favorite oils to solve some of the most common hair issues that we have. As we speak, yours truly is stocking up on hemp seed oil and shea butter. I love the two mixed together for a twisting balm! Indulge your hair this week and try one of the treatments below.

Hair Problem: Frizzy, dry,coarse strands

Oil Solution(S): Avocado oil or Shea butter. These oils have very moisturizing and softening properties. They smooth the hair and make it less prone to frizz. Use a little straight from the bottle on wet hair to smooth down flyaways.

Hair Problem: Hair thinning or hair loss

Oil Solution: Coconut oil. Coconut oil is chocked full of vitamins and minerals, It also has antifungal, moisturizing, and softening properties. Try a hot coconut oil treatment with a few drops of an invigorating essential oil (tea tree, rosemary, peppermint).

Hair Problem: Hair that lacks shine and elasticity

Oil Solution: Hempseed oil. This is my favorite oil of all time! It is full of ceramides which are great for restoring elasticity and shine to the hair. It also has a very smooth texture which aids in detangling. Try adding a few tablespoons to your next deep conditioning treatment. You will definitely notice a difference.

Enjoy your day!
