The Benefits Of Using Apricot Oil On Relaxed Hair

There are so many natural oils out there. Many of them I'd never heard of.

Others come from vegetation that I never dreamed could be made into an oil. The apricot is one of those. I'm not a fan of apricots. In fact, I don't like the taste of them at all. That may be why.

Though I don't claim to be a fan of the apricot, I was pretty intrigued by the oil produced from it and how it could be beneficial for relaxed hair.

Apricot oil is considered a non-penetrating oil. It's pale yellow in color and 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 relaxed hair.

Some ways to use apricot oil and get the most benefits for your hair include:
