This is what I found on a hair website http://www.curlyhairsalon.com/homerecipes.html

To keep your curls healthy, try the following natural essential oil moisturizers:

  • Patchouli Oil - Adds moisture and sheen to dreads.
  • Sage Oil - Stimulates growth and is said to kill bacteria.
  • Rosemary Oil - Adds sheen to hair, stimulates growth is said to be good at fighting dandruff.
  • Sweet Almond Oil - Great for fighting a dry, itchy scalp. Contains vitamins E and F. Also good for itchy scalp.
  • Primrose Oil - Conditiions and moisturizes hair.
  • Jojoba Oil - Great for adding moisture to a dry scalp. Jojoba oil smoothes and conditions hair.
  • Avocado Oil - Contains vitamins A, D, and E.

  • Birch Oil - Great anti-dandruff scalp soother.
  • Calendula Oil - Light astringent. Is said to soothe the scalp and eczema problems.
  • Olive or Extra Olive Oil - An excellent leave-in conditioner.
  • Emu Oil - Natural & non-toxic, non-comedogenic (does not clog pores)...fights dandruff.

    These essential oils are great at adding moisture and sheen to locks and other natural styles.

    I love to use those essential oils (jojoba, almond, shea) to do a hot oil treatment on my hair before I shampoo and condition. For everyday use I love Parnevu (spelling?) T-tree oil it conditions my hair and leaves it shiny and healthy without leaving my hair feeling heavy.Also Motions CPR daily moisturizer is great!

    The only time i use pure vitamin E is I wash my hair. I put some on my edges when it's wet but not on the rest of my hair b/c the oil is too thick. I use to use the kind straight out the capsule but I have some in a 1oz bottle and it's really thick when if I try to warm it in the palm of my hands.

    Olive and Clove Oil Therapy by Organics Africa's best.  It has all the great oils.  It stops hair dryness and split ends.  You don't need a lot...cause too much could weigh down the hill but just a little and it goes a long way and it smells nice.

    tgurl,

    Does this Kemi Oyl keep your hair very moist?  I have such dry hair.

    Thanx

    HG

    yeah the kemi oyl does keep your hair moist.you can do hot oil treatments with it to moisten hair.also the kemi oyl keeps my hair moist for about 2 days then the third day it's dry.you may want to use it every 2 days to keep hair moist.

    i recently 'rediscovered' coconut oil, and it worked surprisingly well on my hair.  I typically use olive oil for my deep conditioning...but i'm gonna try coconut oil the next time i wash because i like the results so much when i'm just applying it to directly to (relatively) dry hair.

    I've got a question about castrol oil. How exactly would you use it? And how does it affect your hair? I wanted to buy some but I've got to make sure theres a use for it.

    Sakura-Castor oil- I apply it to dry hair , scalp and concentrating on my ends- the nite prior to shampooing- apply a thin, plastic cap and go to sleep-shampoo in the a.m.- It thickens, softens and moisturizes your hair. Hope this helps.

    I have been using sweet almond oil for over a year.  I may be in the minority on this but I like the results of this oil over jojoba.

    I haven't used Sweet Almond oil in a while...Lately I have been using extra Virgin Coconut oil. The scent is wonderful and it seems to work wonders, especially for a pre-poo treatment.
