There are several myths about using Hair oil on Black hair or scalp: It Clogs your Pores; It causes your hair to become greasy; It does not promote hair growth. Let's talk about it! If you use too much of anything, this may be quite possible, but overall, using natural hair oils such as Castor oil, Argan oil, Peppermint oil, Olive oil, or other 100% organic/natural oils can actually have its benefits, and especially on Black Hair a.k.a African American hair. When used properly, Natural hair oils can:

1. Strengthen hair strands

2. Retain hair length

3. Soothe Itchy scalp and irritations of the scalp

4. Promote healthy hair growth

5. Reduce hair breakage, split ends and dryness\

6. Reduce hair friction in between strands

7. Reduce Hair Frizz on color treated hair

8. Locks in hair moisture, conditioning and shine

9. Helps to protect the Scalp's Microbiome

10. Keeps out environmental impurities such as pollution, sunrays and heat

Black hair, whether it is Kinky-Coily (Afro-textured), Curly, Wavy or Straight would greatly benefit from Natural Hair oils because it protects the hair follicles from everyday wear and tear-which can prevent healthy new strands from growing out of the scalp. It is important that you understand what type of hair that you have so that you won't overuse hair oils. For instance, if you have Afro-textured hair, it will most likely soak up the oils within a day; therefore, it is okay to oil your hair every day or at least 5 days a week. For thinner/Finer hair you may only need to use hair oils 1-3 days a week.

Whether you like it or not, your hair needs constant moisture. Let's think about it this way, if you don't water a plant, then what happens? It eventually dies! Your hair is a like a plant, if you don't keep it moisturized, it will become damaged and break off/shed, and may never come back. Keeping black hair moisturized with the right hair oils is important to healthy, long lasting hair growth; therefore, it is highly recommended on Black hair. For those who may think otherwise, Good Luck on keeping your hair!

When looking for the best type of hair oils, you should look for ingredients that can help your hair to become stronger, longer, thicker and is able to remove hair dirt and impurities so that your hair can continue to grow.
