Hair oils

I am down to 5 products and i need a good hair oil recommendation. I want something to use for scalp massages, something that is light and has no smell or a very light smell, Something that is nourishing to the lenght of the hair and will seal in moisture?
You have lots of choices and ways to use oil:

Pure coconut oil
Castor oil (good mixed with another oil)
EVOO
Avocado Oil
Sweet Almond oil
Ones I want to try - macadamia nut oil & meadowfoam seed oil

Hi happy 4b

All of Suburbanbushbabe's™ suggestions are great I would like to recommend another one that I brought to my attention upon a fellow Cg's recommendation. Olive oil I have it in my cabinet. Some times if my hair or scalp feels dry I rub a little in my hair. I heard that sesame oil is good to but, that I haven't tried yet. I hope that this helps.

God Bless

I really like the Meadowfoam Seed Oil there was an article from naturally curly (in October 2006) that talks about it. I'll post it below. After reading about it I bought some. And I really like it a lot. I put it in my hair roll my hair up in a bun and wear it this way to bed. In the morning when I wake up and shower its soft and silky.

MSO is pretty hard to find in health food stores so I bought some online. I have quite a bit (much more than I'll ever use, I found a gallon goes a long way) so if you want I'd be willing to swap or sell some of it.
I have shoulder length 3c curls thanks to my grandfather who is french and bohemian.

This is part of that article I was talking about. A lot of it was the backround of of MFSO but if you want to look it up its from October 2006.

The beauty of meadow foam

October 2006
By Stephanie Rose Bird
Not long ago I wore my hair in a naturally curly tiny ‘fro about 1” in length. With a no-nonsense hairstyle like that, little refinements go a long way. I had been working to clarify my curls using a product that didn’t flake onto my clothing, turn white (a hideous look on dark brown hair) or harden my hair. I also was looking for a product that delivered what its packaging promised. Low and behold I came across an exquisite gel in a spa, which has since (unfortunately) gone off the market. What I remember about it is that it was all-natural and contained very few ingredients. The key active ingredient was meadow foam oil. For many NaturallyCurly.com readers, products containing meadow foam oil may also be just the ticket to simple, healthy, sexy-looking curly hair. To begin to understand why it is such important oil for us, let’s explore the plant that yields the oil.

Now that you have meadow foam on the mind be sure to check for products that contain it — you’ll find plenty of natural products that do. There are many reasons for its popularity including the following list of meadow foam oil’s attributes:
    1. Adds stability to beauty formulas containing less stable oils such as sweet almond oil, kukui nut, evening primrose, borage and hemp.
    2. Makes a good addition to soap (combines moisture with cleansing action)
    3. As a binder it anchors scents and fragrances when used in bath salts, soaps, massage oils and other personal care products.
    4. Prevents moisture loss in skin and hair
    5. Emollient
    6. Has good slip (grip; molds well to hair and skin)
    7. Conditions hair
    8. Adds shine and luster to hair
    9. Non-greasy
    10. Reduces wrinkles and other visible signs of aging
    11. Lubricant
    12. Stable regardless of heat, cold or other environmental conditions
    13. Resistant to oxidation
    14. Its medium to thick consistency has properties of a carrier oil
    15. It's a mild oil that works well on sensitive skin
    16. Has higher quality triglycerides (fats) than most other vegetable oils
    17. Lightweight
    18. Add fullness and body to fine or thin hair

Hi there,

I recently started using Hollywood Beauty Olive Oil and it works very well on my hair; it's easy to find and doesn't cost much.

I hope you find one that works well for you.
