When it comes to curly hair, they offer the most amazing texture and feel, but often their maintenance can be challenging. If you are struggling to balance between soft and shiny curls, there are several oils that you can try out for optimal results.
Here are five oils that make an excellent choice for curly hair.
#1. Coconut Oil
Extracted from the white flesh of coconuts, coconut oil is rich in natural fatty acids and nourishing properties, which makes it a great choice for curly hair.
#2. Jojoba Oil
If your curly hair scalp is dry and dandruff is a concern, jojoba oil makes the right choice for you. The non-greasy oil doesn’t weigh down thin curls and is great for sensitive skin.
#3. Castor Oil
For curly hair that needs some extra moisture, castor oil makes it its best friend. Castor oil possesses rich moisturizing properties, which strengthen and thicken hair. But, since it’s sticky and heavy, you only need to apply a bit of oil to the roots, and you are good to go.
#4. Argan Oil
Argan oil is rich in oleic acid and linoleic acid, which helps maintain your hair’s moisture while encouraging hair growth. If you have damaged or unhealthy curls, massage your scalp with argan oil, and you will notice the difference immediately.
#5. Almond Oil
For dry, frizzy curls, we recommend using almond oil which immediately leaves your hair feeling soft and supple. It makes your hair smoother and prevents tangling and breakage while strengthening and repairing your hair.
So there you go. Your curls will thank you for using these amazing oils!
