I've learned the value of deep conditioning with various oils. Olive, grape seed and jojoba offer amazing results -- prevent split ends, breakage and add elasticity. Castor oil has anti-fungal, anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties and it seems to loosen my daughter's curl pattern at the root. And since she gets a good amount of shrinkage, the oils make detangling easier. I also like to spritz the oils combined with water when she has braids and twists.
I came across SIMPLICITY HAIR OIL on Instagram. The brand promises stronger locks and hair growth --who doesn't love that? The blend of all natural oils should keep dandruff at bay and stimulate hair follicles. The SHO site boasts of testimonials from customers with Alopecia and even has celebrity reviews -- women who suffer from their edges being destroyed by weaves and lace front wigs.
No matter if your hair is color treated, relaxed or natural, flowing down your back or cropped close to your head, a healthy scalp and healthy hair is the ultimate goal for us all.
