Jojoba Oil? For Hair?

Jojoba oil is an organic oil derived from the jojoba seed. It is said to believe that this oil has many great benefits for all hair types, such as:

·         Moisturizing the hair

·         Soothes dry, itchy scalp

·         Strengthens hair

·         Prevents hair loss

·         Tames dryness and frizz.

I personally use the NOW Foods Solutions brand and I have to say this oil is one of my favorites. It is very lightweight and non-greasy, which I love. I hate my hair being weighed-down and oily feeling. Yuck! It also doesn’t have much of a smell when first applied, another plus for me. I also like how easily this oil washes out of my hair. I typically use this oil when I am re-moisturizing a style during the week. It gives a nice, healthy shine to my hair. I have also used this oil when doing the LCO (leave-in, cream, oil) method and also on some of my twist-out styles and I loved the results.

Of course, with the good comes the bad. Well not really, I only have one issue with this product. So I mentioned how it doesn’t have much of a smell when first applied, which is true. But after the second or third time of applying this product I start to notice a very hard to describe smell. It doesn’t stink but it also doesn’t smell good. It’s kind of like an outdoors kind of smell. You guys get what I mean.

Now although I do like this oil and it has become a staple in my regimen, I do want to point out that this oil does NOT soothe my itchy scalp, prevents hair loss, or tames my dryness and frizz! Lol. To be honest I am unclear if it’s even strengthening my hair either.

For my hair, it is just a good moisturizer. Some added shine. That’s it.
