    The main thing to consider when using grapeseed oil as a heat protectant is to not go above the temparature stated on the bottle.So this is a brilliant way to control the heat from your electrical tools.Using a silicone based protectant means you tend to use more heat.

    Just when I'm getting bored with my natural hair, I come on CN and find inspiration. The blowout looks fabulous!!!! You are rocking it chica! Thanks for the great video.

    i appreciate the grapeseed tip! I usually use coconut oil and two spritzes of a heat protectant and it works pretty well also. Your hair is gorgeous! I'm looking forward to sporting a blowout BAA this summer!

    Ohhh… I'm so excited about using Grapeseed oil now. I knew it was great for high heat cooking, and never thought to apply it to hair. That's the second time I've seen that blow dryer. What type is it? I need one.

    I think NikkiMae is a beautiful young lady, and I love exploring different styles and ideas. But the blow out afro is just not for me. I think it looks great on her….but it's not for me. I like my hair to lay down, and I like it curly, twisted and soft. CN has spoiled me too much with her beautiful twisted styles and TnC. Not to mention I do not absolutely put any heat on my hair, even on a cool setting. I don't own any flat irons, or blow dryers and don't plan on it. But for all who can rock a blow out. I say more power to you. Be Blessed!!!

    Hi and thanks you all! : ) Just want to clear up some things:
    1) Grapeseed oil is a type of oil that can withstand high temperatures without burning. It doesn't transfer heat very well.
    2) The temperature at which you use your blowdryer will definitely affect if you "fry" or cause heat damage to your hair. To decrease those possibilities, I ALWAYS use the lowest heat and intensity settings possible on my dryer. Essentially, it is just cool air. I've never suffered any heat damage using this method.
    3) Grapeseed oil is NOT an essential oil, but a CARRIER oil. Essential oils are very concentrated and must always be used in conjunction with a carrier oil when being used. You can read this article I wrote describing the difference between carrier and essential oils here for more info:

    Hope that helps! *Mae* aka Natural Chica

    yeah,i have that oil question too! can you use any essential oil? and will you fry your hair?

    I feel like I remember hearing somewhere that oil is not good on the hair when you are applying high heat to your hair…it would be like frying it. Has anyone else heard this? Just wondering.
