did you use it as a hot oil treatment or just put it on? i saw the same stuff @ sallys and was wondering if i could just use it for a regular hair oil and have the same results. let me know!

I used it as both. I liked it better as a hot oil treatment because I think it penetrated my hair better when the hair was wet.  When I used it when my hair was dry- it made my hair feel a little dry.  Also the first ingredient is water, so you can't use too much or your hair will "go back". Hope this helps.

ive got organic roots carrot oil and olive oil. the carrot is good on the breakage on edges of hair  i suffered over xmas thats started to grow back well and the carrot oil helps it. also i was very very indecisive about olive oil and jojoba oil. i ended up choosing olive because my hair does get really dry and thirsty. olive oil is lovely. its making my hair feel soft and its not heavy at all. not to mention giving it shine. but after skinbeauty mentioned this:::

I agree with Ryansgirl.  Jojoba they say is the closest oil to sebum, our naturally produced body oil.

im thinking hmmm....maybe i should have got jojoba. but ill see how olive oil goes, i like it to be honest.

I use Moisture in Control by Berry Flecter which main ingrediants  are  Jojoba oil and B5 vitamins. I put a drop on my hand and smear it in my hand and apply it section by section. It is very light cuz any thing heavier would weigh my hair down;and I would not have any body in my hair.

 

I found a definiton of Jojoba Oil from my Natural Ingrediants Dictionary

Jojoba Oil

This rich extrach helps the jojoba desert plant retain water during the long summer drought.Similarily, when used in cosmectic preparations,it not only acts as a humectant, but actually creates a protective film over the skin and hair shaft that helps kee moisture in. Highly effective on dry or sun-damaged hair and skin.

So, I guess we can not go wrong with Jojoba Oil.

Are there different types of Jojoba Oil? The only type I've seen is the one that is a hand moisturizer or something. Is that the one everyone is useing?

Also, does Jojoba Oil leave your hair all greasy like Mineral Oil?

I read about coconut oil on Medline.  It can actually absorb into your hair shaft.  The tests proved that it has "an affinity for proteins" and can prevent protein loss.  I plan to use it as a pre-wash and post-wash treatment just like the experiment.

If you're going to go for an oil that's not coconut oil, maybe use another essential oil (one with fatty acids) like sunflower oil.  Just a suggestion from what I read on a different site.  I'm on a hunt for coconut oil.  I will worry about all that other stuff later.

I just use plain cooking olive oil. I  heat it up slightly, slather it on my hair (making sure I hit the broken areas really well), put on a plastic cap, wrap a towel around that, and go to bed.

When I wash it out the next morning, my hair is very soft.
