Oils: What works best for you?
There are many oils out there for natural hair care. I’m one to try everything at least once and see how it reacts to my hair. However, when I first started my hair journey, I used a mixture of Jamaican Black Castor Oil 8oz and Doo Gro Mega Thick Growth Oil, 4.5 Ounce (Pack of 2). This is my staple product and I love it. I’m using it more now for specific places on my head that have not grown due to alopecia and hoping that it will help me in the long run and my hair will finally grow back. Its been more than a couple of years to say the least. Anyways, there are tons of oils on their for people and many will say combine this with that to make it do this to your hair. I think its all about experiementation and seeing how your own hair reacts to the oils you put in it.
