How do you guys feel about oiling (greasing) your scalp? My scalp is very dry. This is because my hair and scalp is moisture deficient. However, I am working on resolving that issue. (Thank you guys for all your tips on moisturizing) Do you think oiling (greasing) my scalp will help also? My scalp is very sensitive to petroleum and mineral oil. Most hair oil (grease) is either petroleum and mineral oil based. Does anyone know of any hair oil (grease) products that doesn't contain any of the harsh ingredients? Preferably, a product that has all natural ingredients.

The only hair 'grease' I really like is Dax Supergro. it melts in your hand. It has an awesome ingredient list too!

Petrolatum, Sweet Almond (Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis) Oil, Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis), Avocado (Persea Gratissima) Oil, Sunflower Seed (Helianthus Annus) Oil, Jojoba (Simmondsia Chinesis) Oil, Sesame (Sesamum Indicum) Oil, Wheat Germ (Triticum Vulgare) Oil, Safflower Seed (Carthamus Tinctorius) Oil, Peanut (Arachis Hypogea) Oil, Cottonseed (Gossyplum) Oil, Fragrance.

Other than that I only use natural oils. Wonder 8 original (with spout not sprayer) is a really great combination of oils as well. You can also do your own blend of Extra Virgin Coconut, olive, and castor oils.

BUT most importantly, you MUST apply moisture to your hair BEFORE any oil or 'grease'. Your moisturizer can be a water-based liquid or a water-based cream. Just make sure that water is the 1st ingredient.

Water= moisture
Oils/grease= moisture sealant Wink

This is one I use :

Nubian Heritage it is blended with pure Shea Butter, Aloe Vera, Vitamin E, nourishing Coconut Oil and vitamin-rich Papaya. It is provides luster and sheen to hair.

Ingredients: Coconut oil, Shea Butter, Vitamin E, Papaya Extract, Rosemary Extract, Aloe Vera Gel, Cocoa Butter, Jojoba Oil, Sunflower Oil

I also make my own mix of shea butter w/ olive oil, or flax seed, castor oil, jojoba oil, grapeseed oil or vegetable glycerin.

This sounds like it is all natural. No petroleum or mineral oil? Where can I purchase this?

I grease my scalp 3-5x a week with Dax Supergro. I love the smell.

I find that just a little grease or oil goes a long way when conditioning the scalp. I use either a creme hair dress, avocado butter or a light essential oil to massage my scalp. If I use too much of any product, it weighs my hair down and looks greasy.

I've tried the EVOO and coconut oil method for the past month and it is the best results I've ever had.
