Jojoba oil is an ingredient in many hair-care products because of its ability to strengthen and moisturize hair. Dry hair types benefit most from this oil. It can be used as a hot-oil treatment or a conditioner after shampooing. It’s nontoxic, nonallergenic and doesn’t leave a greasy buildup behind, so it’s safe to use on a weekly basis.
Jojoba is considered a moisturizing oil since its molecules are small enough to penetrate the hair cuticle. Jojoba oil is also the oil that is considered to be most like natural hair oil or sebum that’s produced by the sebaceous glands.
Jojoba oil also works well on the scalp and keeps it from being dry. This is a great oil to treat dandruff, dry scalp, and psoriasis on the scalp. It also promotes a healthy scalp with its antibacterial properties.
Jojoba oil helps keep the hair moisturized so that it doesn’t break and can retain length.
How I use it: I use a teaspoon amount in my hair after shampooing and conditioning. I apply it from the roots to the ends and leave it in for 1-2 mins and then rinse really well. It hasn’t left my hair looking greasy at all and I have noticed a huge difference in how shiny it’s been. I am really loving the results so far! A little goes a long way.
