I used to use blue magic but it made my hair flat with no movement but it did give me shine.

Hey, have tried a cream type (pure) moisturiser and sealing with an oil?
 
it was the first thing i did when i started looking at the forum.
 
cut out greasing your scalp, moisturise your new hair growth and ends, then use an oil of your choice to lock it all in.
 
my hair is much  healthier than before.
 
i do that everyday and the condition of my hair has only improved.
 
And, i remember blue magic....it has nothing on this new regime!
 
i hope this helps.

I use it sometimes when I'm bunning on windy days. I like it better than hair gel. And I use it to seal my ends but not on my scalp so much.

i used to use grease but not anymore, it's not necessary and it generally makes my hair greasy.

you should mostly use greases to coat the hair, apply only a thin layer for shine. Other than that,it weighs down the hair. Stick to sprays (alchohol-free), glossers, and light serums.

please dont clog your scalp with that stuff...you can use it on your strands to seal in your moisturizer...

Moisturizing your scalp is not that necessary. Its your ends that will trip. Our scalps produce natural oils so when you put oil on it it makes it dirty quicker. When I used to oil my scalp before BHM and when I was relaxed I had to wash often because the oil would weigh the hair down which I hated Angry especially when I did a good roller set.

I would say not to grease it at all bcause blue magic clogs the pores in your scalp.

any overuse of any oil will clog your pores

You already answered your question.  IMO Mineral oil gets a bad rap.  I use dominican products laden with mineral oil and its works for my hair just fine.  I learned to listen to my own hair and its likes and dislikes.  i also use Nu Gro grease with petroleum mixed with Boundless Tresses 3x a week with no issues.
 
If youre concerning about the health of your scalp, just add some Jojoba oil to your shampoos to get rid of hardened sebum that can clog hair follicles.  You can have this condition without using grease.  Oil dissolves oil.

Man I haven't used Blue Magic in a decade.  But what I do remember is that it made my hair feel stiff and dry but greasy.  But back then I didn't know about water and using grease only to seal the moisture.  I thought grease was the moisture.  If it works for you, by all means keep using it.  For me I just don't have the urge to go back to it.  It is a bit heavy on my scalp.  Even though my scalp produces oils, there is an area on my scalp where it is just bone dry. Therefore I need to put some kind of emollient oil on there, after a rosewater spritz.  Good luck.

Weighted my hair long ago so stopped using it...my only use for it is emergency moisturizer after a shower. Or something to coat the perimeter of my or my boyfriends hair for hair dye days.

Wow, I hadn't thought about Blue Magic in years.  My mom used to use that in my hair back in the day.  You brought back some sweet memories... hot combs, sitting in the kitchen getting my hair done...  Good times.
 
As for using it now, I'd have to say "No."

I used it on my scalp in the past but stopped when I heard it clogs the pores. I used it on my ends while bunning and after about a week my ends were nice and soft. I think its probably good at sealing.

I had some BM just sitting on the shelf (so am trying to use up all the stuff that I don't like), so I mixed the BM with some leave in cond. that was yucky (very watery), added some sulfur and some mega-tek, got out my hand mixer, whipped it until is was real smooooth........love it! Then again my hair has always entertained BM/petroleum. I can tell you one thing for DANG sure, when my ma was taking care of my hair (back in the day we didn't know about no almond oil, argan oil, and natural oils that), she used hair-rep, coconut pomade and royal crown, (and there wasn't a whole lot of shampoo'ing going on either), my hair was past my shoulders and healthy. Negro got grown started with perms, colors, and all that other stuff, and my hair has been jacked up for the past 30 years, hair went straight in the tiolet! But I say, use what you like! I just love living in America...do what YOU LIKE AND LOVE Clap.

I spent the night at a friends house and had no styling products with me and we decided to go out to lunch so i had to make my hair look extra nice. My friend had some shampoo and hair grease and that was it. I washed my fro and finger styled it with grease then airdried it and honestly, that was the best wash & go fro I have ever had
 
i am back to the late 70s with most of my styling & beauty products and i have been having much better results than i have had with all the high priced new age stuff that is not tried and true. Im about to go back to using Ponds Cold Creme or Noxema on my face next lol

BM isn't that bad! I remember back in the day there was no "OILS" other than crisco (my aunt used crisco on her hair and feet), both were beautiful, and to this day her hair is still long and healthy. But again I'm guilty on jumpin' on the band wagon because somebody said this or that, I have decided to just do "ME" and be happy. I too was thinking about using some of the "old school hair products", heck, my hair was so healthy and long. As far as Noxema......I have spent hundreds of $ on face stuff............just a waste of money. Went back to Noxema and have stayed there. Just do "YOU", everybody is different and results are different. I love livin' in Amercia, do what "YOU" like and be happy Big smileClapBig smileClapBig smileClap.

Now you know I agree with this. I've been using my Ultra Sheen, Hindu Sheen, and CON and I get great results with my natural hair and weave. As far as I am concerned, if it works it works. Listen to your own hair.

My SO uses Blue Magic.

Honestly, if it it does more good than bad for your hair then I say keep using it. People say you shouldn't use certain products because of the ingredients and what have you but if something is working for you then why go switching things up.

IMO moisturizing your scalp is necessary especially if you do things like wash your hair frequently because certain products can strip your hair of it's natural oils. Also, you have to remember that, yes our hair produces oils naturally, but for some it may not be as much as others so that extra bit of moisture is probably needed to help their hair grow healthy and long.

Please try to  refrain from using products that contain petrolatum or mineral oil in your hair. It clogs your hair follices and makes it flat and lifeless. Coconut, Shea Jojoba and Tree tree oils are great and healthier alternatives.  Trust me you'll notice the difference. I make a blend of my favorite oils into a whipped consistency and my hair loves it. Wink

if your scalp it itchy and has dandruff you should try the kera care dry and itchy scalp glossifer! that stuff is amazing it gives you shine and movement! and it last for like 3 days unlike the blue magic but its like 13 and really worth it! as soon as you put it on your scalp you can feel it going to work!LOL

LOL You shouldn't have asked that question on this board cause grease is rule number one when it comes to what not to use on your scalp/hair if you want to keep it healthy. Every black woman should know this by now.

My mom used to use blue magic on my hair as a kid. She would slap it on my hair and take a wet brush to put my hair in a little ponytails. I hated it because it smelled awful. As an adult it just weighed my hair down and made it look a greasy mess.

i absolutely hate Blue magic grease!!! Angry It did nothing for my hair (because of the horrible ingredients of course) but weight it down and make it extremely greasy. Not to mention my hair still broke off. If I only knew then what I know now

I fell for the "grease is bad for hair" comment. But I am a new natural and I tried all the products and natural products that they claim that is better and natural. But my hair was like Angry. So I got some Blue magic castor oil hair grease and it has been the best choice since going natural. My hair is soft moisturized and growing. I had some breakage spot and its filling in. I dont care if it clogs pores. Thats what a shampoo is for to cleanse hair and scalp. Duh!!...lol Its not like it will be up there forever. But to each its own. Just sharing my experience.

i wasted alot of money on natural  products and my hair was dry and the shortest its ever been. i never had breakage and bald thin hairline as a child using grease and i dont have those problems as an adult using grease. i love blue magic hair conditioner. i think its better to keep it OLD SCHOOL and simple. marc's lano lustre and blue magic original are the best hair greases out.
