How To Choose The Right Oils For Your Curls

Trying to decide which oil you want to start using on your hair and scalp next? Oils are super important for our hair care regime, keeping our tresses moisturised and locking in moisture while we LOC (Leave-in, Oil, Cream) or LCO (Leave-in, Cream, Oil). There are so many to choose from so here we've picked a few popular oils and what hair type suit which oils. All oils are also great when added to your deep conditioners for that extra goodness.

HAIR GROWTH

Castor oil is a thick oil which is rich in Vitamin E and carries anti-fungal properties. Aiding in hair growth. Lavender and Peppermint Oils can also aid in hair growth by invigorating the scalp increasing blood circulation. Giving yourself a good scalp massage every wash day will help with hair growth. As it is thick, it is great for thicker hair types but also great for thinner hair types when mixed with a thiner oil like Grapeseed or Jojoba Oil

LIGHTER OILS

Grapeseed oil is a very lightweight oil and is best used as a carrier oil for thicker hair types or on its own for relaxed and thinner hair types. It helps prevent frizz, split ends and helps lock in moisture.

FRIZZ FREE

Argon Oil is great for hair that is prone to frizz. It also helps give hair a healthy shine and great softness. It is loaded with vitamins and healthy fatty acids to help lock in that moisture and is light enough to use daily on your tresses.

POPULAR OILS

Coconut Oil and Olive Oil are both great for pre pooing and mixing in with your favourite deep conditioner because of their moisturising properties. Coconut Oil is super moisturising and helps protect and nourish your hair strands easily penetrating the scalp helps with dryness. Olive Oil is a heavier oil yet super penetrating. As it is heavier, it is nourishing, soothing, gives softness and is great for thicker hair types.

Mini kit

I really love the leavein. My hair feels so soft but i still have the volume. I love the mist. I love the oil. I am really in love with the smell of all products. I also recieved a mini butter. The first time i used it my hair looks very good. Second and third time it didnt. Maybe i buy it because the product gives a lot of volume and soft hair. I like that combo! Maybe i need to use less or a different way. I also like it because i dont need a gel on top.
The clay i only use it one time en the shampoo i didnt use yet. But so far i like the clay to.

The packaging is soooo cute.

Mystical Mist

The hair mist is one of the best products i have tried, it makes my hair moist and super soft in the mornings when it is dry from the whole night

I used this for my daughter's naturally curly hair, but also on my hair, which was chemically processed but now going back to my natural state. The product was immediately moisturising and hydrating, but without leaving a residue in the hair. Works well to protect the hair from heat styling as well, and smells wonderful.

So far so good. Used these products when i had my first curly cut. Purchased the travel bag to see if i liked them and i will be buying the full range when payday comes around. Love how easy the leave in conditioner is for my busy life.
