It’s no secret, the importance of conditioning and moisturizing your hair, but what about oiling? Oiling your hair is a MUST
While conditioning plays its role in maintaining health and moisturizing plays its role in reducing breakage, oiling your hair does both. HOWEVER you can not substitute one for the other.
So which oils can you get to protect your hair
I have charted the different level of SPF for UV protection
has a low level of SPF for those who may have skin sensitivity. Jojoba Oil is light in its odor as well. This oil is the cheapest in price out of the 5 listed.
has the strongest odor. Almond Oil also is longer lasting than the other 5.
is harder to find however it gives a greater shine than the others. It is also a stress reliever, who doesn’t love that
is one of the highest oils on the SPF scale that can be placed directly on the skin with no additives. Raspberry oil also has exceptional anti-inflammatory properties superior to any other oil
Carrot Seed Oil
is by far the strongest sun protectant of all. It can also be the most expensive as well but well worth the dollar.
Coconut Oil is definitely a God sent product. It is used in every natural and curly heads journey. Since the rise of demand in coconut oil has doubled in the last 10 years, our shelves have went from maybe two products in the supermarket to 15 types of coconut oil. So how can you choose which are okay to use? Easy
Let’s start with basic definitions.
Unrefined is non-bleached coconut oil freshly pressed and shipped, whilst Refined means bleached and chemically manipulated to remove coconut odor and flavor.
Since we are talking just about hair and not skin nor food, neither of these make a difference, so it all boils down to the end goal of your results.
|can be expensive||typically pretty cheap|
|strong coconut smell||odorless|
|pure unmodified||bleached and chemically altered|
|healthy antioxidants||antioxidants removed|
|expires faster||longer shelf life|
