Yes! We found them! 7 natural oils every curly girl needs. We love them and we’re sharing them with you because our curls are everything and deserve to be treated as such! Behold, a whole list of 7 natural oils every curly girl, woman, (men too) needs to help keep hair nourished, beautiful, and lust worthy!
When you’re blessed with a bed head crown of natural curls, you’re also assigned to the task of caring for them, and all my curly girls know that shit ain’t easy. There are a ton of products on the market that claim to be the best for our hair type,…Lies! Usually, that only leaves us with curls that are either super dry, frizzy AF, or a greasy mess…Nope, keep it!
Instead of the curly hair (but not really) products, we’ve found 7 natural oils every curly girl needs in her life, like, now! What we love too, is that because they’re natural oils, they also do wonders for your skin, and overall health, and we’re always into that. Curls of beauty, and amazing skin? … Yes Please!
Here’s a quick showcase of the 7 natural oils ever curly girl needs, and a quick rundown of their awesome benefits, and our experiences with them, so you can add them to your curls, your skin, and just, your life!
Olive oil is one of the 7 natural oils that every curly girl needs, and is just a dream because it’s great for use with curly, and coarse hair. My curls are mixed up between 3a, 3c and 4a, but predominantly 3c, so it has a tendency to dry out easily in the scalp. I use all natural olive oil for hot oil treatments, or scalp treatments as it prevents dandruff, and promotes healthy hair and scalp. Because it’s rich in Vitamin E, it’s great to use to soften hair and skin. I technically am not a fan of using it on my skin, but drench my hair in it. A fave of mine is Squalane Italian Olive Oil by Botanical Beauty, which is a pure formulated olive oil, without any additives. You can find Botanical Beauty here.
Okay, so, sad to say, but I am allergic to Avocado’s, which is complete ass, because I’m missing out on the benefits that this oil provides. I mean look what it does guys, it revives dry, damaged hair. Helps retain moisture inside of hair cuticle. High in potassium, Vitamin K, Vitamin B-6 and C. Anti-Aging, for skin and amazing antioxidant. But if I go anywhere near it, I’m a body full of hives… NO! Jacquel loves to eat Avocado, and can use the products. Her natural oil choice is Pure Avocado Oil by Now Foods. It does make her curls feel like silk. So I’m jelly. You can get the oil here.
Coconut oil is literally my top fave, out of all of the 7 natural oils! I mean, it’s a curly girls dream for the way that it reduces frizz, and hair loss. When I found out that it increases hair growth, I was drenching my curls in it, and they have been so thankful!! I use coconut oil as a deep conditioner, once a week, and when I rock my bun, it’s great on my ends and edges. And let me tell you that we go through this stuff like crazy because we use it as an all over body oil, and leave in conditioner. We love this one.
Okay, so, Castor oil, is probably has one of the highest amounts of benefits of all f the 7 essential oils, and every curly girl needs it in her life because it is a miracle oil. For many of us curly heads, thinning can be an issue especially if you’re rocking braids, or weaves…(think Naomi Campbell) and because castor oil thickens hair and promotes hair growth, all the curly girls need to keep this in their hair care arsenal. Here’s the thing though, I’m not a huge fan of the smell of plain castor oil, so I have to use this in small doses, or when I can remove it without an issue. You can also add like a lavender oil to it, as it can aid as a carrier oil if it’s in a pure form. Still, it’s great to keep on deck. Try this one.
Jojoba oil gives me nostalgia. I remember my grams used to use it on her skin, and it used to smell sooo good. I would sneak and use it on my skin after a bath and I’d be all soft silky smooth. Ha!. Notice though, that Jojoba oil is in so many products, due to the fact that it prevents hair breakage, and moisturizes your hair with some soft ass super power! It’s everything! You need to have this oil, in your life, like today! We’re going for this one, by Now Foods, to use in pure form, because we’re about that natural oil life! Get like us!
Um, so Argan Oil, has been the craze for a minute now, and is great for highly moisturizing the hair, taming the frizz, and adding amazing shine to the hair. We have used a ton of different products infused with Argan oil, but when I heard all the rave reviews about Pure Moroccan Oil Co., I was a bit skeptical, until I actually added it to my hair, and it felt like it had been kissed and hugged by angels! It’s literally that good, not to mention it smells amazing! If you want to go for the splurge, and grace your curls with the heaven sent argan oil, you’ll need to try this one. Promise you won’t be disappointed.
Jamaican Black Castor Oil:
Oooh, okay so this one is my second fave, of all 7 natural oils, curly girls need this! We Love, LOVE Jamaican Black Castor Oil. We use, the hell out of this one by Mango & Lime, and it’s coconut infused, so honey when I tell you it smells uh-ma-zing! I am not exaggerating. I use this as a body oil and scalp treatment. It’s different from regular castor oil because it’s the highest quality. It It’s amazing for hair and skin, and assists hair, eyelash, and eyebrow growth. Personally, it’s a bit too thick for me to use daily in my curls, when i diffuse it, but in protective styles it’s key! I love it for my ends especially after a trim, or when it’s straight. Also amazing for hot oil treatments and to use as a post oiling agent after a wash. Curls, straight hair, or just being a human, you should own this!
So, now that you have been introduced, and schooled on all of their benefits, I hope you incorporate one, if not all of these 7 natural oils, because every curly girl truly does need them in her life. Your curls, need to be loved deeply, and these, used either alone or together, will definitely give your crown the gorgeousness of a goddess, in no time.
Okay luv’s so, It’s Friday, and so i’m going to be home in laze mode, doing a coconut oil conditioning treatment, while sipping on some warm turmeric milk, like a g’! don’t be jelly!
