Has anyone tried monoi or jojoba oils on their hair?

AVG is aloe vera gel
ACV is apple cider vinegar

If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!

well I got my jojoba and monoi oils in the mail today, and I can't wait to try them out!! I got the monoi oil scented with vanilla, and it smells pretty good....the only thing is that the monoi has solidified. The bottle says to put it in the sun or warm water to liquefy. Looks like I'll be experimenting with the jojoba first! lol.
FYI, I received my "free" ($4 s&h) sample kit from California Gold. They are all 1 oz sizes, not 2 oz like others received.
I put jojoba oil in dry hair. I just put 2 drops in my hand and scrunch it in, or smooth it over the canopy. It softens my hair, and adds a bit of shine.
i used jojoba oil on my hair one time and it made it too oily and i only used a drop or two halfway down to my ends , but i find that its a great mousterizer for my face and hands

I got my jojoba from drugstore.com too. I mix it with my conditioner on dry days with low humidity. I also scrunch some in if my hair isn't clumping too well due to the dry weather.
I can add it to my regular conditioner and use it as a DT too.

Jojoba and now Peach kernel oil are both great on my hair in small quantities

I use shea butter, never tried jojoba oil. I've got some in the closet...
I think I like my shea butter too much to switch. hehe

I think they both have the same hair benefits though.
Only you can make the right decisions for yourself.
Hey, whatever works!

I use jojoba oil as an actual styler. It sounds like I use a lot more than other people here - about 4-5 drops at a time. I smooth it over wet hair and let it airdry, and it both emphasizes my curls and eliminates frizz. I have to watch it, or else I put too much in my hair. I am using sulfate-free shampoo these days - I noticed when I tried doing this on CG, my hair got really weighed down because of all that oil.

I use the Desert Essence stuff from Trader Joe's. A bottle lasts about a month and a half for me.
Hair type: 3A. Almost chin length with Bettie bangs. Currently using GF Curl & Shine S/C, leave in and jojoba oil. Colored black. Check out my curly journal on this site!
