The Top 4 Natural Oils for Natural Hair in 2014

NUT-10010-6Hemp Oil

Hemp Seed Oil is pressed from the seeds of the Cannabis sativa plant and been named nature’s perfect food. This is one of the first cultivated and consumed crops and many wrongly assume it contains the psychoactive constituent of the cannabis plant but it does not.

Hemp Oil is high in essential fatty acids. Omega 6 and Omega 3 are two main families of essential fatty acids that have therapeutic effects. Great for conditioning hair and scalp, hemp oil also has quality proteins that will improve the feel and appearance of your hair.

Hemp Oil a a wondrous natural moisturizer that boosts scalp health, shoring up the inter-cellular matrix, and will protect your strands against moisture loss. Hemp Oil is being more widely used for tresses and will only gain more popularity in 2015.

Jojoba Oil

Jojoba Oil is another one of nature’s gold mines. This golden-colored liquid wax is extracted from the seed of the Jojoba Plant, a woody shrub that covers 40,000 acres of desert in the southwestern U.S and contains almost all of the vitamins and minerals essential for healthy skin and hair.

You get an oil that is really a liquid wax that contains nourishing substances such as vitamin E, A, D, and antioxidants. Thanks to its uncanny similarity to sebum, Jojoba Oil works in the same manner as well, and justifies why it is perfect for your hair.


Jojoba Oil is great for treating dry hair and promoting hair growth and with its molecular structure, it allows the liquid wax to easily penetrate skin and hair cells for better treatments. It is anti-bacterial, anti inflammatory, and non toxic, which makes it incredibly useful for the hair and your entire body.

Avocado Oil

Derived from the Avocado fruit, Avocado Oil is high in vitamin E and unsaturated fats and contains more potassium than a banana. It is great at lowering blood pressure and the main ingredient in Guacamole, but more naturals are finding it as a resource for hair growth. It is finally getting some notice in the natural hair world and rightfully so.

The monounsaturated fatty acid content in Avocado Oil is even higher than EVOO, and is one of the main reasons it is so good for your hair. With all the damage we inflict on our tresses with heat styling, chemical alterations from color and relaxing, the monounsaturated fats, when applied directly in a hair mask, can moisturize, nourish and strengthen hair strands, protecting them from damage. It is great for dry, brittle and damaged hair and lightweight, so it can be easily absorbed into the hair shaft and scalp.

It is time to try some new oils if you haven’t and these four should be first on your list, so start the new year off right!
