Treating Dry Hair With Natural Oils

Keeping your hair moisturized is critical! When it comes to women of color, especially Black or Biracial women, hair tends to be naturally dry and sometimes brittle. Dry hair leads to breakage from the hair shaft. Split ends are a result of dry and damaged hair cells. Many times the relaxing process, which involves harsh and damaging chemicals aid in drying your hair out and leaving you with a head of hair that resembles a bail of hay. How do you stimulate and encourage the healing and repair process of your hair naturally? Follow these tips to begin the process and keep it going to see a healthy head of beautiful, shiny, and silky hair.

Before you begin to moisturize and restore vital oils for your hair, you need to avoid or take a break from chemical relaxers. I know that this seems somewhat impossible for some women, but know that there are some styles that you can consider while you are transitioning. Many women that set out to just take a breather from relaxers end up going natural. The one thing that will restore moisture is to eliminate the chemical inducing damage that you are exposing your hair shafts to. Consider wearing the wavy look that you can achieve by just washing and thoroughly condition and allowing your hair to air dry. While your hair is still wet, you can take your fingers and swish your hair all over, adding essential oils. Trim your ends to rid split ends that only lead to more brittle hair.

Carrot oil can be used on your hair to replace moisture and revitalize your hair’s healthy state. It promotes the development of healthy hair cells.

Another option is to apply to hair and brush to distribute to ends of hair, paying special attention to split ends. Organic Root Stimulator makes great carrot oil.

Rosemary oils are known for replacing what your damaged hair has lost over time due to chemical processing, neglect, and heat. Stay away from rosemary if you are pregnant!
