Choosing the right products for your hair can be a daunting process. As a self professed kitchen beautician, I walk the line between natural and off the shelf products. In some instances only natures gifts will suffice. Natural oil is one of those cases. Instead of buying a product because it has my favorite oil on the label, I chose to use the pure oil itself.

The good part about natural oil is, in moist cases you really can’t do damage. You will see that coconut oil is not listed, my reason is, it dries my hair out. I have mostly low porosity hair and coconut oil actually locks the moisture out of my hair.
