I just read a post about Crisco and its hair and skin benefits. I wanted to know if the oil would work and is it safe for relaxed hair? Also i have horrible eczema, so if any of you have any tips for that it'd be greatly appreciated.Big%20smile

Don't have any tips for eczema, you may want to try the skincare section.  But Lordy I never heard anything about Crisco. I don't think I want to put Crisco on my head. Makes me think of fried chicken Disapprove

This sounds like an urban myth. Crisco is extremely dense, I would probably stay away from this one...

In the 40s 50s and 60s before the influx of products for woman of color thats what some poor folks had to use to press their hair with. If its harmful I dont know but chicken taste real good cooked in itLOL

I read the posts about using it on your hair and face.  I just had to give it a try and since it is made of soybean and cottonseed oil and contains antioxidants I didn't see what damage it could do - it is edible.  
 
I been using it on my face over an acne product for less than a month and I've hardly had any breakouts on my face.  My skin feels soft and just yesterday someone said my skin had less dark spots - I can't say it's the Crisco alone that helped the spots.  I will keep using it until the weather gets warmer and then I'll switch to something lighter for my oily skin. 
 
As for what it did to my hair I wasn't feeling it.  Mainly because I followed a post that said to mix it with Eco Styler gel to make a curling pudding.  It was clumpy and I believe it left white spots in my hair or something.  
 
I normally wear my natural hair in a two strand twist with a butter or oil to seal moisture in followed by Eco Styler olive gel.  I'll give the Crisco one more try on my hair, maybe this weekend.  Will report back if I'm happy with the results.

I couldn't really say, but I have heard of ladies using it as a substitue for hair grease (petroleum free)

I thought I was the only one using this LOL

I am natural and as a child my mother used to make our hair grease (trinidad)
before I jumped on the prostyle gel bandwagon I would use pure crisco to grease and gel my hair...
 
I love crisco... my hair was very healthy and I feel that it grew as well.  I used to use it to press out my hair with the pressing home since thien I dont use it because I prefer a BOUNCE and it will weigh your hair down.  but its rather good... dont sleep on it!

No its not an urban myth ....there are tons of people using it on other message boards...it works as a good sealant. but you will need to clarify if you use it
