Natural Oils Good for Chemically-treated Hair

It's time for another hair series! This one is about natural oils for chemically-treated hair. Natural oils can be a very important part of healthy relaxed hair regimen. Extracted directly from plants, they provide slip, help seal in moisture, soothe a dry scalp, add shine and can help prevent breakage. One important thing to note is most oils don't moisturize.

When it comes to adding natural oils to your relaxed hair regimen there are so many choices. As a way to help me select the oils I'd like to include in my regimen I think of them in three groups:
  1. Penetrating Oils
  2. Non-penetrating Oils
  3. Essential Oils
Natural oils can be a good add to a relaxed or natural hair regimen. This post outlines the three groups of natural oils, how they can be used and where you can find them. | arelaxedgal,com

While the oils in these groups have their own benefits, they can also be mixed into a oil cocktail for enhanced benefits. Upcoming posts in this series will dive deeper into the benefits of these groups and the specific oils that fall into these groups.

In addition to the many choices of natural oils, there are also multiple ways you can include them in your chemically-treated hair regimen - hot oil treatments, scalp treatments, oil rinsing just to name a few.

You can find these oils in grocery stores, health food stores and online. To find an oil or oil cocktail that works best for you and your hair takes experimentation. Not every natural oil works for everyone.

What natural oils do you use in your hair regimen?
