What is your favorite hair oil?

Hair oil is an essential part of maintaining natural hair moisture. And everyone that is natural has their favorites.

Mine is Coconut Oil. I love love love coconut oil. I love how it smells and how versatile it is. I mean, I can cook with it (haven’t done that yet..but my mom made popcorn with it once..AWESOME!), use it on my skin and of hair. I literally go from rubbing coconut oil in my hair to putting it on my legs in the same application. It leaves my skin feeling amazing and after I spray some perfume on…irresistible.

I usually apply it to my hair when it’s wet daily. I rinse my hair in the shower every morning. Towel dry (but still damp..not dripping) and then apply Giovanni Leave-In Conditioner. After the leave in, I put the coconut oil (about a quarter size). Then I let it air dry. With living in FL, having a cool head feels great. Once dry, my hair doesn’t feel greasy at all. It feel soft!

The coconut oil I use is EfaGold Coconut Oil, I get from the health food store. It’s not coconut oil for hair, or coconut conditioner, it’s the actual coconut oil. You’ll probably find it near the supplements. It runs me about $15 but it lasts just about all year. It comes in a container as a solid but melts very quickly in your hand. The only problem I’ve had with the coconut oil is the fact that when it partially melts in the container, you’re left with little white balls of oil that takes longer to melt when you’re emulsifying it in your hands. What I’ve found that works, is to completely re-melt the coconut oil and let it cool back to a solid. Just like new!

If you were stranded on a desert island and could only take one hair oil…which one would it be?

Naturally Clueless more than a year...

So, it's been over a year since in first BC'd.  My dad is still trying to convince me to go back to 'normal'   But I love my natural fro! 

Me with the big cousin with dreads
The only thing I can't stand is detangling my hair!  I try to do it about once a week..but then it's a cumbersome task.  I load up on conditioner and get to work. Does anyone use a product that helps with detangling??

However, I know that one thing that I NEED to get done a trim.  Since I first cut my hair last year, I have not gotten a trim.  I don't know why.  Trusting someone with my hair and a pair of scissors is hard right now.  I wish there was an easy way for me to do it myself.
