Hey Ladies,

I am looking for the best oil to buy permanently for 4c type hair. What would you recommend and where to buy it online?


Thanks in advance!

Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Avocado Oil, Castor Oil, Grapeseed Oil and Jojoba Oil. I use the first 4 all the time (pre-pooing, deep conditioning, sealing and styling). Most importantly, I use "extra virgin" or "cold-press" of these oils because they have not been altered chemically, leaving the nutrients intact.

A couple of questions for you. When you feel one strand, can you really feel it like a frayed piece of thread or is it feel light weight? Second question, is your hair dense, lots of hair in one square inch (creates nice full twist outs)?

The answers will help me suggest different oils. Great places to purchase are Whole Foods, The Vitamin Shoppe & grocery stores. Online sites include Camden Grey, Texas Naturals & From Nature with Love (FNWL). FNWL is having a great sale now.

1. Thread
2. Creates full twists out

... it is really coarse and thick

like since I have a little color it is kind of hard at times.

Thank you so much @ChrsLvsBks ... you were very helpful and I will take a look at the sites.

JBCO - Mostly use it on my scalp. I get it from Amazon.com or http://www.ayurnaturalbeauty.com/

Jojoba oil - Its a light oil that's great for everything IMO. I usually get it on the ground at my local co-op in bulk.

Coconut oil - Its a great pre-poo for me. I also like to mix it with conditioners to give it a little kick. Usually buy this online: Amazon.com, Vitacost.com or on the ground at Whole Foods - organic.

Hemp seed oil - I like to mix this with my pre-poo and conditioners. I buy this in the refrigerated oil sections at Whole Foods or natural food stores. Its usually organic.

Cocoa butter/castor oil blend - I made this up to use on my skin, but its great for my edges before I sweat at the gym. When I melt the cocoa butter in a double boiler, I mix it 50/50 with castor oil.

EV Olive Oil - Another all-purpose hair oil for me. I usually get the big bottles of organic olive oil from Costco.
