Natural Oils are a significant and necessary part of healthy hair care they have a variety of benefits and are so important to hair growth because they provide the slip and protection our hair needs to maintain its moisture and prevent breakage.  Oils can be categorized in many ways but for the purpose of this article the two categories used will be Penetrating oils and Coating oils.

Penetrating Oils – Put simply penetrating oils are oils that have the ability to enter the cortex of the hair shaft.

1. Coconut Oil – Penetrating

Once coconut oil enters the hair shaft it actually has the ability to patch and protect the hair from the inside out. It is light in weight and non greasy and one of the highest recommended oil for promoting healthy hair. It’s an excellent conditioner, helps prevent dandruff and is wonderful for scalp massages

You may want to check with Chinese women. There is an herb that they drink ( smells unpleasant) that is suppose to prevent grey hair. I know it works; but don’t have any more info. sorry.

I am eager to find out more about “tree-branch-loks”. I was told by a girlfriend that this is a style of loks whereby your hair looks likes branches of a tree with leaves ! It’s happening in Los Angeles. Can someone please send me a photo or tell me more. I have sister-loks and love them; but if I can design them in tree branches with leaves; that would be fantastic.

I use coconut oil almost daily (5-6 days a/wk). Avocado a few times a/wk well. Olive oil tends to work better on one of my girls’ hairs than coconut oil does (less protein maybe)…. My JBCO bottle has been catching dust for several months, but I am thinking of using it as of today, as a final sealant. Sounds good. These oils are my fave. But coconut oil hands down works in retaining length. I have been able to grow my hair to waist length as a result!

Oooh, I would love 2 see a pic of ur hair! Idk if I would like 2 grow out my hair that long(sounds like a ton of maintenance 4 me to deal w/ day-in & day-out, lol). Btw, do u have natural or relaxed hair? Also, I have a 3 yr-old w/ thick, curly hair(she’s in between 3b – 4a hair type) that has extremely dry hair w/ frizzy ends. The oils that u use on your daughters’ hair can be used to combat my issues, right?lol If not, what do u suggest? Thanks for letting us know what oils u use(will def. try the coconut oil for sure)!
