Dabur Vatika enriched coconut hair oil is my favourite too,it includes ingredients such as henna, lemon, rosemary oil and amla which strengthen the roots of your hair to help maintain health and thickness.  Dabur AMLA hair oil is quite an ancient hair remedy lol and works a treat because it promotes hair growth more and the healthiness. Dabur JASMINE hair oil makes hair really silky and smells gorgeous, but can turn hair a lighter shade gradually.
 
where i sometimes buy them when the stores have run out.

Emu oil is my favorite because its creamy, increases the moisture level and makes my hair feel very rich and emollient. It also helps other oils deeply penetrate. I love it.

Next up is coconut, which not only smells good but adds moisture, shine, and prevents against hair protein loss.

I know people like to say oil only seals but doesn't moisturize. That's not true with these two oils, especially emu.

My favorite oil is Virgin Coconut Oil.  I also like EV Olive Oil, though.  Coconut oil is great for promoting hair elasticity and improving the cuticle and shine.  If taken internally it will make hair more manageable, soft, and shiny and also reduces your bodies need for Vitamin E.  The benefits of this oil are endless.  It's the only saturated fat proven to lower bad cholesterol levels and improve good ones.  It also works as an anti-oxidant and blocks free radicals that can damage skin and hair.  I can go on and on about coconut oil, but here's a website that can tell you more about it if you're interested.

Oh no, that's not the name.  The virgin coconut oil that I use is by spectrum organics.  I buy it at Whole Foods for around eight or nine dollars.   Most people who are coconut oil fanatics like myself use Tropical Traditions.  They say it's the best, but I've never tried it.  To me any organic coconut oil should be good enough.  I don't think a brand makes a major difference.

So I live near a health food store, should I just ask them for organic coconut oil, and there is a difference in the edible kind as opposed to the kind for skin and hair...right?

My favorite oil would have to be coconut oil. Supposedly camellia oil is really good, but I havent bought it yet so I'll let you know what's up when I buy it.

MY mother bids me bind my hair
With bands of rosy hue,
Tie up my sleeves with ribbons rare,
And lace my bodice blue.

I use the edible kind for both my hair and to cook with because it's 100% organic coconut oil.  I don't know what they do for the coconut oil to be just for skin and hair.  In my opinion if it's safe enough to eat it's safe enough to put on my hair.  But yes, you can go to a health food grocery store and ask for organic coconut oil and they should have it.

Coconut oil have alot of healthy benefits if used for cooking or taken internally.  Google coconut oil and you'll see some of the benefits.  It is said to help diabetics control sugar levels.  It is also said to help lose weight and control appetite and craving.  Drinking the coconut water and eating the fruit itself is also very good for your body.

It is also very good for hair because it's easily absorbed into the hair staff and strengthen it.  It offers all of the biotin, protein and omega 3s that your hair needs to be healthy.

Do some research and you will see some of the benefits.

No, the coconut oil used for cooking isn't flavored in anyway.  It even smells like coconuts.  I use it in my deep conditioning treatments by mixing a portion of it with my deep conditioners and also I use it to lightly coat my hair.  You don't want to use too much.  A little bit goes a long way with coconut oil since it is a very rich oil.  Your hair will look super healthy and shiny and also if you take it internally, your skin will reap the benefits as well.  It's also been shown to help with maintaining a healthy weight.  All I can say is that this oil is that this oil is too good to be true.  In Africa they call the Coconut palm "the tree of life".  I think it's fitting.

Hello all,
 
For those interested in purchasing sheabutter and essential oils, I came across some websites that may be helpful. Also I have included a website for perfume bottles for the oils. I like pretty bottles. The prices are ok, if someone knows of a cheaper place please let me know.
