The big elephant in the room that no one discusses in the natural hair world is that the organic oils we place in our hair, should be used according to the appropriate season. Not every oil will respond the same way to your hair in every season, and this is the same for other hair care products but that’s another blog for another time. Nonetheless, with regards to our oils, We should pick the ones which nourish our hair according to the levels of humidity and dryness in the air.
So, with that in mind we have created a list of the top 3 oils as well as unsuspecting hydrating products for Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer.
#1. Argan Oil
So let’s start with Fall & Winter which can be very drying seasons, and sometimes very rainy. We have found that argan oil is best for both seasons. It’s a very nourishing oil that works well in weather that tends to leave our natural hair very dry and dehydrated. One of the central factors to why argan oil is so nourishing is because it is jam packed with vitamin A and vitamin E along with antioxidants, omega-6 fatty acids and linoleic acid. All of these components enable your hair to be weather resistant to the dry and cold season.
#2. Grapeseed Oil
Grapeseed Oil is a light oil that works really well with Spring weather which can often have a lot of water in the air, perhaps due to the April showers that bring May flowers. The weather tends to be warm allowing there to be a precursor to Summer. The lightness of the Grapeseed Oil is able to absorb the water in the air and use that to further hydrate your hair as oppose to holding the water which would in turn cause your hair to frizz. So, grapeseed oil is your hair’s Spring fling.
#3. Ancient Cosmeticz
Whew chile the Ancient Cosmeticz Dark Spots & Blemish Cream is actually an amazing natural hair hero packed with essential oils. This nourishing product is an all organic handcrafted cream made with: Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Coconut Oil, Lavender essential oil, Turmeric essential Oil, Lemon Essential Oil, and Geranium Essential Oil. It is absolutely amazing for the hair during the Summer. The coconut oil along with the cocoa butter is like pure armor for the Summer’s dry season and keeps the hair shiny and well feed.
All of these oils work really well with the top natural hairstyling products such as your leave-Ins and gels, and let’s not forget our highly coveted natural hair stretching tool the ‘Hair Weight.’ We will always shout out our hair stretcher, it works well with any quality hair care products that we of course hope to shed more light on down this future blogging road.
