Default Which oil do you prefer? OLIVE, JOJOBA or COCONUT

which oil do you prefer to use, i'm using olive now, jus want to know what the majority of you guys use to see if i should switch to that.

I use for moisture, and relaxing my scalp by massaging some olive on in it.

I personally prefer jojoba oil, whenever I do my hair straight or curly. I find that jojoba has the lightest consistency. It also does not leave my hair with that greasy-like texture. Unfortunately jojoba tends to be the most expensive of the three oils you inquired about, but itís worth it.

I totally agree. jojoba is the best of the 3.

I've never used Jojoba, because I haven't been able to find it. But between olive and coconut, I like coconut oil better because olive oil is too heavy.

I order my jojoba oil from this website http://www.jojobacompany.com/.
But you can also go to your local natural herb store. I'm from Connecticut, so there are many places such as "Edge around the woods" in New Haven, CT.

Thanks, I'll look around for it. I'm in Atlanta right now, so I have to search around for health stores.

I used some random mineral oil I found in the closet. Weird, because it said "laxative" and "intestinal lubricant" on the label.

But I know that babyoil is mineral oil + fragrance, and Ive always like THAT....soooo I figured it'd be great on my scalp.

Hey Kell...maybe you should read some of the old post but from what I know mineral oil isn't really that good for your hair and most curlies advise to stay away from products that have them because it coats the hair and builds up and locks out all moisture making your hair dry overtime. The best oils are natural oils from vegetables or nuts because there are more similar to the oils in our hair...(the most similar being jojoba) anyways hope that helps...

good luck with your new quest on becoming natural
this site has great information and you should also check out The long hair care Forum for women of color...

I like olive oil but vitamin E gel capulses are the best for my hair for great moisturing and get your hair a healthy beautiful gloss/shine. I buy a bottle of vitamin E (I like to get the long capsules and bust the gel capulses and apply to my hair when I do braidsets or loose curls.

That's a good idea

I like coconut oil for curly and olive oil for straight, but have yet to try jojoba.

I haven't tried Jojoba, but between Olive Oil and Coconut Oil, I definitely preferred Coconut. I feel like it absorbs into my hair better/quicker than OO. The few times I used OO, my hair just felt really greasy.

Jojoba all the way. I LOVE it. My hair generally hates oil, but this is the one oil that does not weigh my hair down or make it sticky. It absorbs really well. I use it daily.

Olive oil would be my second choice...but I can only use it for DTs. Same with coconut oil.

PJ alert: I admit I have all three of these in my stash!

Default Love Jojoba

I love Jojoba. It makes my hair soft, leaves no residue. But I also love using Grapeseed and Apricot Kernel Oil.

I really like Jojoba Oil for skin and scalp. Its the oil that is most similar to sebum so our skin loves it. It moisturizes but isn't heavy. I add it to every beauty product I own. Its good for hair if you want something light. As far as the other 2, I'm dying to try Olive Oil. I just finished a jar of Coconut Oil (in my DTs) and don't think I will repurchase. It was okay but I but not what I hoped for.

Yes, Vitamin E capsules! I used to use them on my dry skin.
