What's your favorite?

Africa's Best Ultimate Herbal Oil
Amla Oil - Helps slow down shedding according to some reports.
Aloe Vera Oil
Apricot Kernel
Argan Oil - Exotic and tends to be pricey. Made from the nuts of the Moroccan argan tree.
Avocado Oil - Tends to be moisturizing. May prove to be better on dry hair than wet. Many find this better on dry hair than wet.
Babassu Oil
Baoabab Oil
Beautiful Hair Oil - Made from a 100% organic jojoba base with essential oil designed to add moisture and health to hair.
Black Current Seed Oil
Borage or Borage Seed Oil
Broccoli seed oil - This oil may mimic cones on some types of hair. Good as a conditioning oil but not as good as a styling oil. Leaves hair very shiny. Strong aroma.
Carrot oil
Camilla Oil
Castor Oil - Not recommended for most hair types. Very heavy and oily. It is recommended this oil be mixed with other oils to minimize the oiliness.
Coconut - Some people swear by this oil while others find it too heavy and/or oily. It's antibacterial properties are well documented. Results vary in a very wide spectrum.
Vatika's Herbal Coconut oil
Cranberry Seed Oil
Emu Oil - Although some find this oil very moisturizing, it is very controversial because of the methods used to harvest the oil from the Emu.
Evening Primrose oil (EPO)
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) - Very heavy and not universally helpful to all hair types and textures. This oil may be too heavy for hair that is thin or fine. It has a very distinctive aroma.
Flaxseed Oil
Grapeseed Oil - Is often described as light without scent. Not quite as moisturizing as sweet almond oil. For some it can provide a good balance of moisture.
HairTopia Beautiful Hair Oil - Made from a 100% organic jojoba base with essential oil designed to add moisture and health to hair.
Hazelnut Oil
Hempseed Oil
HobaCare Oil - A very high quality oil that is cold expeller pressed exactly once.
Jojoba - A popular basic oil, which is generally more expensive than other oils. Works well on both dry and damp hair to condition it. Also works well when mixed with aloe and glycerin as a leave-in and styling product. Excellent also as scalp massage oil and for skin moisturizing. Great on the ends. Blends exceptionally well with essential oils and fragrances.
Lindseed Oil -
Macademia Nut Oil
Meadowfoam
Mineral Oil
Monoi Oil - Too light for some hair, can feel drying. May work best for pre-shampoo treatment. Leave-in treatments may not be as moisturizing.
Monoi Pitati oil - Very strong tropical jasmine scent. just too strong
Monoi Sandalwood oil - Too medicinal smelling for me
Monoi Tiare - Floral gardenia scent. Rich sultry summer evening scent. A great summer oil.
Monoi Vanille- Delicious aroma. The oil blends well with any perfumes that have a vanilla base note.
Monoi Ylang ylang oil - Just yucky, also kind of medicinal
Moonchilds/Moonchaser's Sweet Success Oil - For some hair types and textures this oil can by quite oily. Many find this as a great leave-in conditioner. Works well as a detangler on dry hair. Also recommended as a scalp massage oil to enhance growth.
Neem oil
Olive Oil - See Extra Virgin Olive Oil above. A popular deep treatment involves mixing olive oil, honey and eggs. Can be heavy in a good way for super curly or wavy hair.
Red Palm Oil - Great for deep moisturizing treatments. Works especially well with mixed with honey and condish.
Rose oil
Sesame oil
Shea oil
Strawberryseed oil
Sweet almond oil - Care must be taken with this oil to make sure it doesn't become rancid quickly. For some sweet almond oil may appear to penetrate better than olive. How oils perform seem to be directly linked to the hair's type and texture.
Sunflower oil
Peanut
Pitta oil (Maharishi Ayurveda)
Quinoa Oil
Red Turkey Seed Oil
Rose oil
Tea Tree Oil
Watermelon seed Oil - May mimic cones on some types and textures of hair.
Wheat Germ Oil

I am going to kick your butt for asking that question. From that long ole list?
Let me see...

I have not tried these but would like to...

Amla Oil - Helps slow down shedding according to some reports.
Argan Oil - Exotic and tends to be pricey. Made from the nuts of the Moroccan argan tree.
Avocado Oil - Tends to be moisturizing. May prove to be better on dry hair than wet. Many find this better on dry hair than wet.


Oooh, how could you forget my favorite, Rosemary? I also love lavender and grapeseed, just about anything that has a herbal scent.

I know. Laughing

I hope you have started on your Guru Guidebook. You are well on your natural way with the wealth of information you have acquired within the past two weeks.

Maybe this can inspire you even more.

If you are not a member of Youtube, you should become one. I do not post videos, but I encourage people and post comments when I can. But most often, I find myself subscribing to a number of viewers.

Here is an inspirational song that I cannot get out of my head. And it reminded me of how I should not cut my hair.

I found out that argan oil at sallybeauty has cones in it! You have to get raw argan oil, it is actually cheaper I heard ...

If argan oil go thru processed, it will have cones! That is why Sallybeauty have them with cones.I thought it was same with all oil that go thru processed, I was told it depend on what is put there . I don't know about Africa Best Herbal oil because it always change their formula, I am getting suspicious and think it contains cones too.
