From my experience & the general consensus,  I’ve found these oils to be excellent for natural hair. They are listed in order of quality:

  1. Coconut oil
  2. Jamaican Black castor oil
  3. Olive oil
  4. Argan oil
  5. Jojoba oil
  6. Avocado oil
  7. Sweet almond oil

Coconut Oil ~ is the best moisturizer, conditioner, protect-er, protein producer, & manager of natural hair that I’ve seen & experienced across all races..  Black, Indian, Middle Eastern, Native American, Asian, you name it.

Jamaican Black Castor Oil ~ Moisturizes and strengthens hair with nutrients for your
follicles as well as fosters hair growth at a faster rate than normal.

Olive Oil ~ penetrates your hair to give it moisture while protecting it from weather  elements or conditions. Also softens your hair.

Argan Oil ~ a hair smoother and high source of antioxidants. Moisturizes your hair too.

Jojoba Oil ~ the most similar to your natural hair sebum, this moisturizes your hair as
it gives antibacterial properties to keep it healthy.

Avocado Oil ~ penetrates your hair shaft while feeding amino acids and other nutrients
to your hair. Add luster to every hair type by its strengthening properties.

Sweet Almond Oil ~ provides healthy hair growth, hair shine, a moisture sealant, and a
strand and ends strengthener.

Vitamin E Oil ~ stimulates your hair’s growth while repairing any split ends and
prevents premature graying.

Shea Butter Oil ~ heavier oil than the rest aiding to fortiy your strands of hair. But
best of all, it shields hair from UV Rays and other sun damage.

Babassu Oil ~ strengthens and moisturizes hair simultaneously. It helps to restore any
skin ailments underneath the hair too.

My Secrets to Growing LONG Hair

Then vs Now..

I use to really hate my look…  beach shot because I was stuck in a wrong thinking. Funny how the inner always reflects what you and others see on the outside. I felt I really couldn’t do anything about it and that pretty girls were born pretty. This was a time before YouTube, Pinterest, and Instagram. Now it has become so popular to alter your look, almost daily, due to the flood of reality shows, entrepreneurial-ism, and a new philosophy of creating the life you want.

Over many milestones of some desired and some undesired change, a family member challenged what I thought of my look, especially my hair. I was strongly encouraged to let go of the relaxer (a staple in my community’s household back then) and embrace consistent care. She invested money, time, and research on the concern of my hair. It didn’t happen overnight, but I began to examine how I could best wear and care for my hair.

After dating a young gentlemen who loved seeing me natural in a picture one night, (it was after I washed my hair and let it air dry), I decided to try being natural. I started off being natural 25% of the time. Then I met another man and he liked that look too, so soon I became 50% natural. After dating him, I decided I wanted to explore more of my natural look and was next 75% natural. A couple of years later and I don’t even remember the last time I got a blow out or a press n curl. I’ve been natural for 100% of the time and I love it! Those two men really helped to push me to fully embrace my natural look. IMG405
