What is the best natural/organic hair oil to use on hair? My hair is very dry, frizzy and poofy at the ends and I'd like something to help with this.

I heard coconut oil and argan oil. Are there any else?

Hi oasis, I have naturally curly hair but unless it's overly humid, it's relatively frizz free.

Because curly hair tends dry, I only shampoo every other day. Conditioner is applied on wet hair and distributed with a wide tooth comb while I complete the shower. When conditioner is rinsed out, I apply a quarter size amount of jojoba oil then a tiny bit of conditioner as a leave in product.

Once a month I deep condition with coconut oil and leave it in all night. Macadamia nut oil is another great leave in conditioner but if too much is used, it can leave hair a little heavy. Shea nut oil is another great leave in with the same caveat as macadamia nut oil.

I've tried mixing pure argan oil with the Sally Hansen's knockoff of Moroccan oil as a leave in as well. It works better for me than the overpriced Moroccan Oil brand.

Hope this helps,

Athena

I have thick yet baby fine somewhat wavy hair and use Shea butter (tiny amount) after massaging it onto skin. I am in Florida so it is humid and I do get the frizzies, This tames them nicely just not too much should be applied. I can apply to either damp or dry hair.

I've been really trying to look after my hair lately!! I am very lucky, my hair is pretty good considering all its put through I highlight every 5 weeks, straighten it with hot irons the works!!

I am really trying to grow it abit longer at the moment is just past shoulder length. I have noticed a very slight hair fall too, not much but I don't want it to get any worse either. I bought some argan oil and have been using that as a sort of leave in conditioner, after normal washing and conditioning. It smells really nice and my hair feels soft. I would like it to grow abit faster (there's my impatient side coming through again)

I was thinking of trying CP's, Folligen for Blondes to stop the hair fall. I did try taking mSM but my tummy just can't cope with supplements.

I also like to do a warm olive oil treamtment and leave it in overnight, just don;t think this is doing anything for the growth side of things. Can anyone recommend something for good growth please? thanks

What brand of argan oil do you all use or is it all natural? I used to use moroccan oil but it didn't do anything except add scent to it.

Macadamia oil is good. I apply a little bit to the ends while the hair is still a little damp after washing. I only use shampoo once a week or even once a fortnight. Shampoos with sulphates can be very drying. I use a silicone free, moisturising conditioner to wash my hair with, about every four days. Conditioner only washing is great for dry, coloured hair, especially wavy/curly hair. It leaves my hair less poofy & gives me nicer, more defines curls. I did need to try a lot of conditioners to find the right one for my hair though. A lot left it too dry & frizzy. Inecto is my favourite. The only downside to not using silicone products is that the tangles are harder to manage. A tiny bit of macadamia oil added to the ends each day or every second day helps immensely.

It depends on if you use heat on your hair or not. I find that a lot of the natural oils can burn more easily because they have a low smoking point. I use heat protectants with silicone in it if I am blow drying / flat ironing my hair. If I am not using heat, I will use jojoba, coconut, olive oil, vitamin E oils. I also wrap my hair at night or at least braid it up to keep it from drying out.
I also wash my hair once or twice a week to keep it from drying out. I also have very curly hair that can get dry and frizzy so I can relate. I hope that helped. Smile

Oh, don't forget to check the labels of the oils too. A lot of the 'hair oils' out there are not just natural oil, it has other stuff in it that is not so natural. (in case you are going all natural)

I have tried olive oil. I leave it on my hair for 5 minutes then rinse it.

It's great. Solved my hair loss problem, too.

the best hair oil to use on hair for me is the moroccan oil, i specially use Pro Naturals Moroccan Oil Hair Treatment with Heat Protector, because it Helps strenghten the hair that's prone to breakage, splitting or snapping off, Gently smoothes the hair and form a protective mist on surface, against heat damage. Reduces friction from brushing and helps prevent further damage. Leaves hair healthy, shiny and resilient. it works really well.

sorry for the late reply. I use a brand called Agadir. It's nice, but I'm pretty sure there is better things, especially for growth!

I love the kerastase elixir ultime. It's relatively new but it can be used in wet or dry hair. It's very moisturizing and sinks into the hair without looking greasy, feeling heavy or like buildup and helps hair to resist humidity.

For reference I have very fine blonde hair.

Rodin Hair Oil, hands down.
I've tried them all, from homemade to fancy.

Rodin hair oil not only moisturizes, adds luster, and doesn't cause the hair to look lanky and oily, it also had the most amazing scent ever--the only scent, in fact, that multiple men who don't like scents at all commented on.

I have found Broccoli Seed Oil to be the best for hair, however, I only use it for humid days. I use straight up 100% aloe vera gel from CVS as my hair gel/conditioner after I shower and shampoo and it dries clear, has a great natural looking hold.

Not really an "oil" cuz its mostly silicones, but MoroccanOil Light smells great, leaves my blonde hair blonde - not darkened like most oils do, and smoothes and protects against heat damage.

I've tried that before and all it did was just dry out my hair cause of the cones.

LightenNLift, do you just use it as gel or does it actually help improve the condition of your hair tooo?

I like Curls hair oil, you can buy it online- no silicone in it.

Also like jojoba oil and used to buy fractionated coconut oil from the chemist-it has the wax removed or something like that!

Macadamia nut oil really works for my hair. I use it as a prewash and I like Moroccan Oil Light.

I think we will find there is no "best" oil for hair, it is going to be quite individual depending on many factors, including hair type, condition, your climate (humid/dry) what else you use on your hair, how you style ect. All suggestions are good ones, it is just a matter of what works specifically on your hair.

The only product that has silicone I think that I liked is Bain De Terre hair oil.

not sure exactly what is in it as it is hard to find round here and price is so high compared to actual natural plant oils I haven't bought that brand in ages.

Moroccan oil smells nice, but left my hair more dry.

Initially I used it as a gel but it quickly became an all in one benefit kind of treatment for me - since the aloe vera held my hair style and dried clear with a natural look, overtime I saw healthy hair as a result. Who would have thought Aloe Vera on hair right? LOL But it works!

LightenNlift,

I don't know the length of your hair but as I do recall from the Osmosis thread you are a male, correct? If your hair is short compared to many women this may work beautifully for you but may not on a woman's longer hair, clarify if I am mistaken please?

I use some oils with silk proteins, but I just tried organic coconut oil and just adore it; my hair needs moisture and the humid weather conditions make it frizzy. Morrocan Oil ( Argan) really didn't do much for my hair except add a scent. I have used jojoba oil, and that's nice.
