Using Grapeseed Oil On Your Relaxed Hair

Grapeseed oil is an oil that I'd see in the store but didn't know much about so I ignored it. Reading hair blogs and looking for some natural products that I can use on my relaxed hair grapeseed oil popped up a lot. A whole lot. Despite that, it took me several months before I tried it. I have to say I really like and plan to continue using it.

So what is grapeseed oil? As you'd expect it's an oil derived from the pressing of winemaking grape seeds. The oil itself is non-greasy, light and odorless. The best types to use are pure organic or organic cold-pressed grapeseed oil.

Benefits of grapeseed oil

  • It's a light oil so it doesn't weigh down the hair making it good for those with thin hair
  • It's odorless so there's no lingering scent in the event that is a reason you're not using natural oils
  • It has a high smoke point of about 420 degrees and can be used as a natural heat protectant
  • It can be used as a carrier oil for essential oils. In fact, I've started using it to dilute my Jamaican Black Castor Oil
  • Better hair health from the Vitamin E and linoleic acid it contains
  • The oil contains high levels of ceramides which are very beneficial for strengthening chemically-treated hair 

Ways to use grapeseed oil

  • As a hot oil treatment
  • A heat protectant
  • Conditioner enhancer
  • Part of a natural homemade conditioner
  • Scalp massages
  • As a finishing or sealing oil
  • As a shine enhancer
