Hair Oil For Locs

This all natural hair oil is formulated for dreadlocks, sisterlocks, microlocs and can also be used for other natural hairstyles!

Avocado Oil

Is said to moisturize the scalp which helps reduce dandruff while boosting the shine and elasticity of the hair, and that in turn helps prevent breakage and hair damage.

Argan Oil

This is definitely one of my favorite oils for both skin and hair and is also referred to as “liquid gold". For hair it is said to fight dandruff, reduce frizz, boost hair growth and soothe the scalp while also adding shine.

Coconut Oil

The lauric acid in coconut oil is said to help nourish hair and tame frizz so you can maintain a glossy sheen and healthy texture and can also help prevent protein loss.

I decided to use regular coconut oil for this recipe instead of fractionated coconut oil because it has little to no lauric acid.

Black Castor Oil

Is said to stimulate hair growth and strengthen thin hair, preventing hair breakage which is imperative for long locs. 

Black castor oil is one of the most popular oils for locs (along with regular castor oil) and is often used as a standalone so you can definitely use more than what my recipe calls for.

Vitamin E Oil

Not only is it said to moisturize and protect the hair from damage but it helps prevent the other oils from going rancid.

Peppermint Essential Oil

May help increase blood flow to the scalp which positively impacts blood vessels, stimulating hair growth and helping prevent hair loss.

Rosemary Essential Oil

Can possibly improve circulation, prevent hair loss and stimulate growth. 

Other great oils to choose from include Jojoba Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Tea Tree Oil, & Grapeseed oil.
