What are some really good oils?

Hi!

I love Knot Today, but it isn't the most moisturizing, so I combine it with argan oil I got as a gift. The problem is that I'm running out and don't know where to buy more, plus it's $10 for 1oz.

I have tried coconut oil before but blehhhh. So greasy! Does anyone have any others recommendations? Which do you think I could add to Knot Today that would moisturize without greasiness? I'm wanting to try grapeseed or sweet almond

Try apricot or jojoba oil. They're light and won't leave a greasy residue.
Whoop whoop!

Apricot kernel oil or sweet almond oil are good choices! Nice and light but still moisturizing I have sahara desert hair though, I mix straight-up dollops of coconut oil in with my rinse-out conditioner hahahaha. I use oils like these and Argan to seal, so I think they're light enough to mix with Knot Today!

Also, Shea Moisture makes an elixir that has several oils in it (including argon). Just don't spray it directly onto your hair - the nozzle is too generous! Spray it on your palm or mix it with your LI or gel.

ive tried quiet a few oils, argan oils great, if ya dont like coconut oil, then i second apricot oil macanut oil is great as well, it matches our own oil that wee produce naturaly so its nice and light, im just starting to use that one, hemp oil is good too, its really rich so i tend to mix it, and emu oil is the other one, it can be greasy for same curlies, but if your just using to seal with it, then it should be good

my hair: 3c, high porosity, high density and coarse hair (i think i finally figured that all out)
my hair loves conditioner only styling!
my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.

I also blog about my hair journey, please feel free to read and comment/ask questions http://www.naturallycurly.com/blogs/...air-blogs/2494
Avocado oil , is one of the few oils that penetrate your hair. It makes your hair shinny and moisturize .
Mac nut oil hands down!

How do you use an oil as a sealant? How much/ how/ when to apply....

Thanks!
Good question about the sealant and I'll be watching the answers since I'm not sure about it, but meanwhile, my favorite light oil is Beautiful Curls Shea Butter and Neem Nourishing Curl Oil, available at Whole Foods.
2/c and some 3A.
Protein sensitive but can use occasionally
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Stylers: Mix Curls in a Bottle into everything for shine. Terrible pj
Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
Every day is a gift
