"Is Baby Oil Good For Your Hair?"

Is baby oil safe and effective as a sealant? Imani lets us know.

This month on Curly Q&A we're lucky to have a special guest answering your curly questions, Imani Dawson of Tribe Called Curl! Imani has been thoughtfully answering questions from our curly community, like this one from member LoveableAngel

Question:

"Is baby oil good for your hair?"

Answer:

Baby oil is essentially mineral oil with fragrance. And while I'm personally not a fan of it in my hair, there are a number of curly, coily and kinky girls who swear by products containing mineral oil.  Here's a Naturally Curly article extolling the virtues of mineral oil.  My advice would be to experiment with a little as seal once you've moisturized your hair, and see how your curls respond. Be sure and wash with a clarifying shampoo afterwards.

If you have your own questions you'd like answered by Imani, our community or any of our editors, post them here.
