Non-penetrating Natural Oils for Chemically-treated Hair: Apricot Oil

I'm not a fan of apricots. In fact I don't like the taste of them at all, but after researching apricot oil I may give it a try. Apricot oil is a pale yellow oil made by cold pressing apricot kernels or seeds. The best type of apricot oil is 100% natural, cold pressed and non-processed. This light oil is rich in fatty acids, Vitamins A, C and E making it good for dry, natural and chemically-treated hair.
