4 Essential Natural Oils for Afro Hair Growth
Natural afro hair oils come from different sources, and the type you choose depends on the afro hair problem you are trying to solve. Choose from Sta-Sof-Fro's Coconut Hair Oil, Lavender Hair Oil, Rosemary Hair Oil or Black Castor Hair Oil.
Coconut Hair Oil
Coconut hair oil is regarded as a favourite among other natural oils as it can moisturise your hair from deep within your strands. The oil deeply penetrates within your scalp rather than just sitting on top of it. It can do this as it consists of a high concentration of vitamins E and K as well as saturated fatty acids.
As well as banishing dry and dull hair, our Coconut Hair Oil can also reduce dandruff, split ends and thinning of your hair. For best results, use Coconut oil as a daily moisturiser for your scalp or add one or two drops of it to your existing shampoo.
Lavender Hair Oil
Massage our Lavender Afro Hair Oil into your scalp to nourish and improve blood circulation. Consequently, blood circulation improvement gives more oxygen and nutrients to your hair follicles which will result in better afro hair growth.
Its soothing effect also makes it a great anti-itch agent as it can calm an inflamed scalp. Disinfection is another role taken by this oil as it cleans your scalp getting rid of dandruff, viruses, lice, fungi and any other microbes.
And that's not all. Our Lavender Hair Oil can also treat insomnia and Alopecia when it's combined with our Rosemary Afro Hair Oil.
Rosemary Hair Oil
If you want to reduce the effect of grey hair, then look no further. Mix five to six drops of our Rosemary Afro Hair Oil with your leave-in conditioner. Massage this mixture into your scalp. Leave it on for at least 30 minutes before rinsing it off. Repeat this deep-conditioning process at least once a week to darken your hair gradually. Rosemary oil also comes infused with vitamin A that is necessary for hair growth.
Like Lavender oil, it increases blood circulation to your scalp, thereby improving the growth of your hair. It has both anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial effects to soothe dry, flaky and itchy scalps. You can also add Rosemary hair oil to your shampoo to soften your hair naturally.
Castor Hair Oil
Our Castor Afro Hair oil can act as a scalp cleanser as it helps promote hair growth and remove toxins. This oil has antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties with its high omega-9 fatty acid ricinoleic acid content. It acts as a natural moisturiser that can preserve and retain the moisture of your afro hair.
Moreover, the moisturising properties of the oil promote hydration not just to your hair but also to your scalp. Castor oil is best when used once or twice a week. If you want to reap the benefits of this afro hair oil, massage five to six drops of this oil into your hair and then leave overnight under a satin scarf. The next day, wash the mixture out with your shampoo and conditioner. Use this type of treatment once a week.
