Hi All! I am Danni and I am a staff writer here at BHI. I am a Graphic Design major and a long time resident of Washington DC. I have been on a healthy hair journey for 3 1/2 years. Within those years , I have went through a relaxed hair journey, a natural hair journey in which I big chopped twice(2nd big chop occurred in November 2013) texturized and now I have big chopped a THIRD TIME! I am 100% natural and here to stay. I am super excited to share information that I learn along the way to those who are just as into healthy hair care as I am and wish everyone best wishes on their healthy hair journey!

    Coconut oil is NOT a sealing oil! I’ve seen numerous different articles on this website claiming that coconut oil is a spectacular sealing oil when in fact, it is not a sealing oil at all! Coconut oil is a PENETRATING oil! Meaning that when you put coconut oil into the hair, it goes inside the hair shaft providing moisture to the inside of the hair. It DOES NOT seal the moisture inside of your hair you need a particular sealing oil (such as grapeseed oil, almond oil, castor oil etc.) for that! Just wanted to clear that up because there are sevaral articles providing the same misleading information. DO NOT seal with coconut oil, it will not seal your moisturizers in!

      I’m afraid I don’t agree Tiara. Coconut oil is indeed a penetrating oil but if your hair is already ‘full’ of leave in conditioner/water then because oil doesn’t mix with water it has no choice but to remain over the top of the water hence ‘seal’ the moisture in. It may not smooth the cuticle the way other oils do but it will certainly seal.

      You may not agree but some of us fine haired ladies find that coconut oil is the only thing that works at keeping moisture in without weighing our hair down.

    Shielo is my new holy grail shampoo! It leaves my chemically treated hair very clean, very moisturized, fuller looking and softer feeling, no matter which conditioner I pair it with. I use the Shielo Hydrate Shampoo & Conditioner and I seem to get fuller and healthier looking hair with each and every use. It’s the best shampoo I have ever used. In addition, it’s sulfate free.
