There are 3 essential oils that anyone with natural hair can’t do without. These oils are avocado oil, coconut oil and olive oil. They help to strengthen hair by preventing damage.
Avocado Oil is very effective moisturizer for dry, damaged and brittle hair. It is packed with healthy hair vitamins such as vitamins A, B, D, and E.
It also has protein, iron, amino acids, copper, magnesium, and folic acid. All nutrients that make it ideal for use to help prevent damage to the hair.
The vitamins aid in protecting the scalp thereby feeding the hair follicles while the amino acids promote healthy cell growth to restore or maintain scalp health.
Avocado oil is also filled with fatty acids which help to make hair feel soft and imparts shine
Olive oil is a great conditioner for hair and also one of the top emollients that can penetrate the hair better than others, and its lightweight nature makes it great for moisturizing.
Olive oil is also filled with anti-inflammatory properties that promote scalp health and prevent dandruff. Olive oil is not likely to cause an allergic reaction, making it ideal for sensitive skin and hair.
Coconut Oil is antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral due to the presence of medium chain fatty acids.
It can prevent hair loss or scalp conditioners due to bacteria or fungus build-up on the scalp.
Coconut oil treatments prevent combing damage in hair when applied both prior to washing or and after washing.
Out of the three oils, coconut oil has proven to reduce the amount of protein loss in hair.
