I'm in love with JOJOBA OIL!!!!!
 
I am now a convert to this "miracle" stuff... I had been having scalp issues (itchy/flaky/acne/sores/scabs - yuck, not pretty) and had read that jojoba oil was the closest to matching our regular scalp oils and a great treatment. 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...

Even better, I've been using the leftovers on my face instead of my regular moisturizer (also read it is great for skin, even skin with acne), and that has done wonders for my face as well...much less breakouts, plenty of moisture, and a decrease in the excess oil I used to produce! Woo-hoo...

And the third change I've noticed is that my fingernails are also actually growing (instead of being their usual splitting/peeling selves), and I believe this is due to using my fingertips to massage the blend into my scalp (and me massaging the oils into my cuticles)!!!!!

Hands down (pun intended), jojoba oil is the one multi-purpose beauty essential that I could not possibly be without ever again!!!!!

I'm going to have to try that. Three benefits in one! Thanks!

I used some for the first time just last night. I had forgotten I got some from KBB and came across it in my stash. My hair was dirty and was going to have to be washed this morning anyway, so I put maybe a total of 10 drops on mine. I was really surprised at how well it had absorbed into my hair this morning. I'm going to have to try that regularly. I had been using coconut oil occasionally, but it seemed to just sit on my hair and not soak in, plus it made it too soft even after low-pooing. The jojoba didn't do that. I'll have to try massaging it into my scalp next time since I have scalp 'issues', too. Will try it with tea tree oil, too. Thanks for this tip!

Using Jojoba oil will definitely bring back the shine, luster, and natural beauty of your hair in an inexpensive and natural way. Have you ever combined with emu oil and primrose oil? I have found this combination to be an amazing healing hair oil.

I love jojoba oil too. for skin and hair :love5:

I began using jojoba oil a couple of months ago and it's a keeper! Once a week, I use it in my hair as a leave-in conditioner for my ends. At night, I use it on my lips and eyebrows as a moisturizer. I began using it on my eyebrows because sometimes the skin under my eyebrows will become dry, itchy and flaky. Using jojoba oil when my skin is damp has completely solved that problem!

Jojoba oil is also the safest way to moisturize - if you are concerned about the mysterious list of ingredients in your lotion... Jojoba oil has only 1 ingredient!

Thank you for this tip! :wav:
I have battled a dry scalp for a long time, but its become worse since I began using CG methods.

For facial skin, sunflower oil is even better than jojoba - it's less comedogenic. That's what I use with the castor oil for oil cleansing.

I never thought to use it on my eyebrows and they are always flaky. I will def. give this a try. Thanks for posting about this.

afrosheenqueen 02-18-2009 01:32 PM

I've been using this for about a year. It's great!

hrgirl314 03-25-2009 08:19 AM

where do you purchase. sounds great.
thanks

That's awesome! I'm glad it worked for you! I haven't tried jojoba oil before. When I had scalp issues recently, I used a combo of olive oil + rosemary oil rubbed into my scalp and left in overnight. It got rid of my itchiness and flakiness.

If you like jojoba oil, you might be interested in the Komaza honeycomb hair treatment. I haven't tried it myself, but I've read some positive threads about it:

http://www.komazacare.com/honeycombhairtreatment.html

HoneyComb Hair Treatment Ingredients: Aloe Vera, Honey Quat, Panthenol, Pro Vitamin B5, jojoba oil infused with Nettles, Hibiscus, Gotu kola, Horsetail, Saw Palmetto, Amla (Amalaki), Brahmi, Sage, Green Tea, Licorice Root, Marshmallow, Coltsfoot, Passionflower, Yarrow, Chamomile, Pyguem, Burdock Root, Emu Oil, Rice Bran Oil, Pumpkin Seed Oil, Aloe Vera Oil, Vitamin E, Carrot seed oil, Bay Laurel, Rosemary, Peppermint, Chamomile, Rose Otto, and Lavender essential oil, Methyl-Sulfonyl Methane, inositol.

Places to purchase jojoba
 
I got some yesterday at Whole Foods, also available at Trader Joe's and Henry's Foods. Most herbal or natrual food stores should carry it. If you can't find it in the store, check with your local massage supply store...jojoba is used as a massage oil also.

Good luck!

Despite my earlier posts, I didn't end up liking jojoba in the long run - my hair just doesn't like most oils. But as far as straight oils, it is probably the best one for me.

However, I've since tried the Komaza Honeycomb Rejuvenating Treatment, and may hair and I much prefer it. It contains oils, but they're very light and easily absorbed in this concoction. I really, really like it.

I have a small bottle of KBB jojoba oil for sale over in the swap forum if any of you are interested . . . .

My hair loves jojoba oil. There are many different brands out there. I find they're all good. (I like the Desert Essence brands... not too expensive.)
http://www.vitacost.com/Desert-Essence-Jojoba-Oil

:idea1: I put several drops in a spray bottle of water. After I wash, I spray my hair until it's really wet, then use a leave-in conditioner.

I also use the water/oil mix to tame the frizzies in the morning. If you find that your hair can take more oil, you can just put a few drops in your hands and run it through your hair.

Depending on the brand, some have a very light scent, and some almost none at all.

There's also an inexpensive condtioner, Mill Creek Jojoba Conditioner, that makes for a great co-wash / rinse-out.

(My links are for Vitacost.com, because they have good prices and 4.99 shipping. You can probably find the jojoba oil in any vitamin or natural foods store.)

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.

stargazer613 12-11-2009 02:12 PM

I love it, too! It really seals in moisture and helps with a flaky scalp.

Jojoba Oil
 
I have used this for a few years but mostly for my kids acne. They bring it to me at night "mom put some jojober oil on me" LOL!! I also use it for a face scrub. I use a liquid cleanser , brown sugar and 2 drops of jojoba oil and it cleans my face well and makes me glow.

bfly36 12-16-2009 09:11 PM

jojoba oil
 
Just some info, jojoba oil is acually a wax not an oil, isnt that weird. I actually resembles the sebum we have on our face and skin. That is why it gets rid of acne for alot of people. So don't be scared if you haven't used oils on your hair.:icon_smile:
