Do you know the benefits of using oils on your hair?
Oils provide your hair with tons of nutrients and vitamins. I find that different oils work great for different purposes. Some oils I only use on my hair depending on if it's straight or curly. I've also heard of some people switching the oils they use depending on the seasons.
Below is a list of healthy oils for your hair.

Castor oil is really thick! Many people use it for their hair to promote healthy hair growth. I've even heard of many people using it on their lashes too!
Personally, I like to add Castor oil to shampoos and conditioners. I add oils to shampoo because otherwise shampoo can be extremely stripping towards my hair. Oil in conditioners is great because it adds to the moisturizing ability of the conditioner.
Grapeseed oil is moisturizing and great because it's lightweight. I typically use lightweight oils on my straight hair and heavier oils on my naturally curly hair.
Try mixing grapeseed oil into your deep conditioner or applying after a steamy hot shower!
Extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
Avocado oil is not an oil I use often, but it's great for your hair. I'd recommend using it if your hair is dry, brittle and in need of nourishment.
Avocado oil provides many nutrients like vitamins A, B, D, E, protein, amino acids, iron, copper, and more!
Argan Oil originates in Morrocco and comes from the Argan tree.
I mostly use this oil on straight hair, but it's slightly thicker than Jojoba oil and would also work well on naturally curly hair too! It really keeps your hair well moisturized.
Do you use any of these oils? If so how do you use them?
I love to add oils to my other hair care products and many of these oils double as other body care items!
