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 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
Hmmm that's interesting; I just bought some jojoba oil today after searching long and hard for it. I may have to try that next time I wash.

Are you serious? Wow! I have very fine hair that gets overwhelmed easily but I can safely rub 2-3 drops on my hands to remove gel crunch from my hair without ever getting the slightest oily feeling...

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.

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.
