This is a Japanese oil with a sweet, herbal aroma. It is made from the seeds of the Camellia flower and is a great source of unsaturated fats (similar to Olive oil and Grapeseed oil). When used on hair, camellia oil helps to condition the hair shaft, stimulate scalp circulation, and promote healthy hair growth by preventing breakage and split ends. Camellia oil is commonly used as a leave-in, best when applied to damp hair such as after showering. Geishas and Maikos apply a lot, for the distinct Japanese traditional glossy hair look they prefer.
This oil contains Vitamin E, which is necessary for hair growth and health. The extensive proteins, minerals, and the linoleic acid it contains also offer a lot of benefits for our hair. A hot oil treatment using Grapeseed oil will help your hair look shiny, but not feel greasy.Avocado Oil
Being an edible oil, Avocado oil is pressed from the avocado fruit and not the seed. It is high in monounsaturated fats and Vitamin E, and is quickly absorbed by skin and hair.
