Embrace those curls of yours, they will treat you like you treat it! If you are reading this post, you must have curly hair! I want to share with you my favorite oils for curly hair and their benefits. Also, I will let you know where you can find these oils at an affordable price and making sure they are 100% organic oils.

Through my hair care journey, I have found what oils have worked best for my hair and I am here to share! Check out all my other hair care posts here! Let’s get into this post!

Experiment and Research

All curly hair is not created equal. With that being said, just because these oils work for me, they may not give you the same benefit. This is why it is so important to experiment and research with your curly hair. Let your curly hair do the talking. Trust me, your curls will show you what they love and what they hate!

 

Oils for curly hair (any hair type really) has been used over centuries from different ethnicity, probably since the beginning of time. Remember, there weren’t hair care products back in 1000 B.C, 1500s or the 17th century lol. Oil was truly the only miracle product for hair and over time, we have diversified oils to work as (or for):

  • hair growth
  • deep conditioner
  • detangler
  • leave in treatment
  • moisturizer
  • heat protectant

Curly hair: My favorite oils + benefits

Olive oil

The holy grail of all oils, in my opinion. For my curly hair, olive oil works as a great penetrating oil for me. I have low porosity hair, which means I can’t use heavy oils or it will weight down my hair. Olive oil is heavy, but in minimal amounts, works wonders on my curly hair without weighing it down. Benefits include:

  • strength and shine
  • penetrates hair shaft
  • frizz reduction
  • softness

Grapeseed oil

My favorite light oil for curly hair (especially for low porosity) is grape seed oil! My favorite benefits of grape seed oil are:

  • hair growth (all because it’s rich in vitamin E)
  • hair loss reduction (antioxidants that block DHT production)
  • strength

Sweet Almond Oil

This is a new oil I am starting to use and these are the benefits I love that it gives to curly hair:

  • high in vitamins A, B, D and E, magnesium, zinc, potassium as well as healthy fats
  • increases circulation to scalp
  • adds sheen

Avocado Oil

I hate the taste of avocado but I love it for my curly hair lol! Some benefits I am enjoying so far from avocado oil are:

  • detangler
  • dandruff remover
  • highly penetrates the hair (great as a leave in)

Castor oil

Yes, this is a heavy oil for my curly hair, but in moderation, it works wonders for my low porosity, fine hair. The benefits of castor oil I love are:

  • thickening properties
  • hair sealant
  • scalp stimulant for blood circulation

Macadamia Oil

This is also a new oil I am testing out and some of the benefits for curly hair includes:

  • antioxidants help with damaged hair
  • strength
  • shine

Argan Oil

Argan oil has been very popular in the curly hair community for quite some while now. For my curly hair, I love that argan oil:

  • awesome heat protectant
  • great barrier for salt or chlorine water ( I love to swim)
  • curl definition

Jojoba oil

The last oil, but certainly not least, I love for my curly hair is jojoba oil. I love jojoba oil because:

  • treats dry scalp
  • helps with thinning hair (creates volume)
  • Very high in monounsaturated fatty acids (98% of total fatty acids); also rich in Vitamin A, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B6, Vitamin E (very rich in), Myristic Acid (a saturated fatty acid), Plant Wax (similar to sebum).

Buying Natural Oils

 

Natural and organic oils are certainly not hard to come by. Some are harder to find than others and some more expensive than others. Just make sure when you are buying your oils, they are pure oils. Basically the ingredients should just read the chemical name for that oil, nothing else. I love to buy high concentration of oils because they last longer (and most specific oils are only sold in small ounces). Oils like olive, grape seed and, avocado, can be found in your local grocery store! The other oils mentioned in this post can be found at beauty supply stores like Sally’s (where I buy most of mines) or online at Amazon (the NOW brand is my favorite)

Love your curls

Happily ever poor,
