Curly hair needs moisture…period. Water is the best and cheapest natural moisture known to man, but aside from water there are other natural sources that can moisturize your tresses and give your hair what it needs to thrive and stay healthy. Jojoba oil has several benefits for our body and hair.

Jojoba oil comes from the jojoba plant, Simmondsia chinensis and grows in the western United States.  It is considered an oil but it is actually a wax ester full of fatty acids. According to the Gale Encyclopedia of Alternative Medicine, jojoba oil is similar to sebum, the natural oil that the scalp secretes. When used as a hot oil treatment, it mimics the natural conditioning of the hair. This magical oil is organically close to human skin oil. Desert Essence lists it as great for scalp massages, deep conditioning, and protecting your hair from chlorine and salt water. Now, if you are not into using the pure oil by itself, do not fret because I have a list of ten amazing moisturizing products that have this wonder oil in it!
