I'm in love with JOJOBA OIL!!!!!

Like Tree3Likes

I get mine at Trader Joe's. I usually add a few drops to their Refresh conditioner, I never use it straight.
Moisture = water. People people use oils to "seal" in moisture (water) after they wash their hair. I would not recommend honey for this purpose. Welcome to the boards, by the way! There's a lot of information around here to help you.

just got some at trader joes. can't wait to try it!
Style: Twists as protective style for winter, occassional bantu twist outs.
Weekly: Preepoo w/ rosemary water, honey, coco oil and castor oil. Wash w/ KBB conditioning poo, condition with KBB moisturizing conditioner. Twist with KBB Sweet Ambrosia, Shea and dab of castor oil.
Monthly:KBB Luscious Locks DT. Terressentials detox left hair significantly softer and shinier, now use to wash once every 2 months.
another great oil is argan oil, im in love with it! can be used EVERYWHERE as well, i use it on my hair, scalp, face, legs, nails, hands and i mixed it with olive oil to use as a whole body oil. never had smoother softer or shinyer hair/skin/face. argan oil is also great if you have a cut or blister, or anywhere there is broken skin. also great for scars n scratch marks
I have bought some online, cant wait to try it! I have very dry hair and a lot of problems with my scalp. Oliveoil has helped alot, but I still have hopes to eliminate the problem!
I always add a pinch of baking soda to my shampoo whenever I wash my hair to keep it shiny, smooth and healthy. This is also useful for people who use a lot of products in their hair (I don't) because the baking soda removes product build up. Make sure you only use a small amount of baking soda, because if you use too much, it can dry out your hair. This works like a charm for me!

I have been massaging my scalp with small amounts of jojoba oil at night because I had a lot of issues with dry scalp. I would get these scabs eveywhere and when I scratched they would bleed and aother scab would form. Even washing my hair didn't fix it. When I leaned that jojoba oil is the same consistency as the sebum made by the scalp, I decided to try it. Since doing my scalp massages, (about 10 days now) the itching isn't totally gone, but the scabs are. When I wet my hair before washing it, it feels silky and soft. I'm guessing that's from the oil running down my hair. Since I got such good results I started doing the same massage for my SO. He has scalp issues from washing his super thick 4a hair with sulfate poos everyday. I do his about 4 times a week. He says the itching was completely gone by the end of the first week. Now he is using my sheamoisture shampoo and his scalp is visibly better. Before, it was a very pale white color and look dry and cracked, now it is almost the same color as his skin and looks more healthy.

I made it! Tailbone length stretched, WL curly

Teri Laflesh's book "Curly Like Me" sits on my desk and everytime I get frustrated and an impulse tells me to shave my head, I look at it in hopes that one day my hair will graze the top of my butt.

I love the oil to and use it both for hair and skin!

I love this! I use jojoba oil alone on my scalp, and also use in my shea mix for my hair. This is really great. It feels so light on the scalp.
For the past couple of weeks I've been mixing about 15 drops of jojoba oil with about 7-8 drops of tea tree oil in a very small glass dish and have used my fingertips to massage it into my scalp after my morning shower. My scalp has completely healed...AMEN... Plus it makes my hair more shiny (not greasy looking) and less frizzy throughout the day...

I'm glad it worked for you. When it comes to skin and oils, I have found St.John's Wort oil to be good for my face. Had problems with acne too and it helped.
I love jojoba oil too! I use it in my homemade concoctions, to sotc, etc. I bought mine from whole foods, but there are lots of places to buy jojoba oil.

Jojoba oil could be one of the amazing product of hair. I have done some research on this. But after reading this thread I'm sure it's much more beneficial to hair.
I am loving jojoba oil for my hair too. I've been applying it on my hair for almost a month now. The results are amazing.
