Some Good Oils??

I just stated working on my hairs length & im looking for some good oils that will help w. my frizzy ends and that I can moisturize my hair w. ???
i love using oils, i use them everyday and all different ways and different oils. i have a massive collection. if your a fine heard curly then i would go for the lighter oils, (argan, jojoba, grapeseed oil, apricot oil) i have used all these. right now i use apricot and macadamia oil, my hair seems to be really happy with them. coconut oil would have to be my fav. it just seems to do somthing else that the other oils dont, although argan oil does come close to it. if you can handle heavier oils, then olive oil and caster oil is good as well. though i can use a bit of olive oil i feel like it just sits on my hair so i stick to the lighter ones and can use a heavier hand with them.
but if my hair needs a bit more moisture, then i go for hemp seed oil, and if i think it needs somthing more "special" (not just moisture) then i go half half, argan and evening primrose. now all these oils are great for sealing or as a pre poo or as a hot oil treatment or as a DT. ive tried all these things with all these oils but i tend to seal and use them in DT's the most.
same curlies can leave the oil in, like i do, same need to wash it out. you just have to see how it goes with your hair how it feels, if its greasy or what ever. i also use an oil mixture to help with my growth. i use it everyday and have really find that my hair shoots out when i message it in my scalp every day .

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
My hair is super fine, and I have argan oil, but it's a little too heavy for my hair for daytime use. I only use it on the ends at night before bed a couple times a week.

If your hair is thick or coarse, it might work well, but it does have a strange smell. I kinda like it, but some people don't.

One 'n Only Argan Shampoo

I have fine hair and have had luck with several oils. I use or have used:

Safflower
Sunflower
Argan
Jojoba
EVOO
EVCO
Vatika (overnight only)
Grapeseed

I think that's it (I also use a few EO as well.)

Anyway my favs are safflower, evoo, evco, grapeseed (to me I can only use a bit of this or my hair gets too greasy) and jojoba. I think of all of those, safflower is the lightest for me.

You can use any oil on the hair, and everyone likes something different. "heaviness" doesn't really have any meaning for oils, what is a heavy oil for one person is a light oil for another. Oils do have different penetration abilities though. Saturated solid oils penetrate the deepest into the hair, monounsaturated oils like olive oil are semi penetrating, polyunsaturated oils and waxes like jojoba are not very penetrating, and mineral oil is not penetrating at all. I like coconut oil for a deep treatment, because it's so penetrating. I like olive oil as a sealer because it's not so penetrating, and it's cheap and always on hand.

idk if you were partially responding to me but the heaviness or lightness is based on the oils own consitution, having nothing to do with hair or personal bias.

I disagree. I see different people describe the same oil differently all the time. How do you measure heaviness?

Well I don't meausre it. That's the way certain oils are described on their own packaging. I've also been reading a lot of natural heath books that describe oils as heavy, medium, or light. I know that people have their own biases but I think that these labels have some general truth to them
