    I'm an oil junkie and own & have many favorites: EVOO, Virgin Coconut Oil, Avocado Oil, Hemp Seed Oil, Castor Oil, Jojoba, Grapeseed Oil, Bhringraj Oil and Organic Rosehip Seed Oil (for healthy skin & hair). I especially love to infuse EVOO and Castor Oil with herbs that stimulate hair growth & health. I deduced just this past year to start studying herbs and natural substances along with their healing properties so that I could create my own natural hair & beauty elixirs as oppose to spending exorbitant amounts of cash on trying out the myriad of natural product lines out there that exist. My hair and pockets truly appreciate the dedication of my education, LMBO…

    I love Kemi Oyl. Fairly on the expensive side but it smells great, it's lightweight, and leaves my hair SUPER soft.

    1. Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, my hair loves it so much. Like someone said earlier it does solidify in the colder months, learned that the hard way this past winter. lol
    2. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    3. Argan Oil this is good when I'm flat ironing my hair. It's light and gives hair a good sheen.

  • ggrox says:

    #1 on my list is EVOO! Amongst many already named oils above.

  • Anonymous says:

    emu oil because it doesnt give you that oily feeling, it makes your hair feel super soft, and most of all it ACTUALLY aids in hair growth

    I love coconut and evoo for deep treating my hair before a wash. I love jojoba or sweet almond oil to seal. My hair loves oils!

  • babyu21 says:

    I love moroccan oil (also called argan oil) and hemp oil (especially good for scalp problems) mixed together. I also love camellia oil. Check out my site for a whole list of the best hair oils!

    Coconut for everyday use and as a pre-poo mixed with olive, olive mixed with honey as a deep treatment. Avocado, castor and hemp and jojoba oils mixed together for detangling. It's hard to pick my favorites, I love them all!

  • honeybrown1976 says:

    Coconut, EVOO, peppermint, rosemary, and avocado (only in the colder months for the avocado).

  • Elle says:

    Castor oil and peppermint oil:
    mixed together to retwist my locs.

    Tea Tree oil (hollywood beauty brand):
    use to combat dandruff and mildew (i air dry my hair after washing, i have never had mildew, bbut i dont want to chance it) I love this stuff.

  • predestined010 says:

  • BKelz says:

    Right now my favs are jojoba oil and grapeseed oil although I use alot of others as well. I use jojoba oil in my leave-in. I like that it is light and doesn't have much a smell. I use grapeseed oil to seal.

  • Anonymous says:

    Extra Virgin Olive Oil, always, lol. It keeps my hair so soft, smooth, and hydrated!

  • KeetaRay says:

    Oooh I forgot coconut oil! Lawd, I alternate between all of the above. Lol You did ask for our fave, I done named 'em all. Smh

  • KeetaRay says:

    My fave oils are: jojoba oil, olive oil, grape seed oil, and argan oil. Lately I've been sealing my ends with argan oil or olive oil. I put grape seed oil in my spray bottle when I spritz my hair.

    Probably just about everyone's standard Jojoba oil. I don't touch Ms Sheila(my hair) without it! I also use coconut oil for shine.

  • Arti says:

    Depends on the use:

    1. Grapeseed oil – daily under styler for a wash & go

    2. EVOO – to revive curl after a flat iron (added to a co-wash)

    3. Vatika Oil – 3 times a week @ night after a co-wash to soften/moisturize

    Coconut oil- ends and DT
    Macadamia nut and kukui nut oils- DT

    I'm currently using:

    Safflower oil- an amazing moisturizing highly absorbant oil

    Avocado oil- full of vitamins and great for skin and hair

    I use both as sealers and to add in my favorite concotions or conditioners.

  • mangomadness says:

    Olicoco Oil (50/50 mix of EVOO and EVCO)– I use it on damp hair for detangling or with honey as a moisture treatment. I also it as a body oil.

    Castor Oil–I use it mixed with aloe vera gel for detangling or with honey moisture treatment.

    I use Carol's Daughter Lisa's Hair Elixir

  • AusetAbena says:

    Great post, I have a lot of recommendations and here's what I use for what:

    Coconut Oil — penetrates the hair shaft, adds shine, great pre-poo treatment, great addition to deep treatments. Unfortunately, it solidifies in colder temperatures. Not recommended for protein sensitive individuals.

    Olive Oil — penetrates the hair shaft, adds sheen, great pre-poo treatment, won't solidify in cold temperatures, but doesn't smell as good as coconut oil.

    Castor Oil — very heavy, if that's what you want. Great mixed with olive oil as an oil rinse.

    For something lighter than the three listed above, I use jojoba, grapeseed, or sweet almond oil.

  • Jeneen says:

    I am a true lover of extra virgin olive oil and lavender oils. I put them in all my smell of the Lavender is amazing!!



  • Carla says:

    Coconut, castor, olive, and jojoba oils mostly.

  • Candace says:

    I'm currently using a mixture of olive and grape seed oils. Each has different properties that my hair needs minus the high cost. my hair looks great!
