5 Reason's Why You Should Pick Darker Oils In Your RegimenSaturday, July 19, 2014
Ever notice how two of the same oils can be in two different shades?
I always have Extra Virgin Olive Oil in my arsenal; but one day I started using it to seal in my moisture just to switch things up a bit. I couldn't stand it! My hair felt dry, hay-like and crispy. I said "forget this", I'm only going to use this in my deep conditioner.
My sister then started raving about how she found a new love in Extra Virgin Olive Oil as a sealant. I was quite shocked but when she showed me her EVOO, it was vastly darker than the EVOO I had. I tried her darker Extra Virgin Olive oil, which was more "greenish" in colour, on my hair and I loved it! My hair felt softer and retained moisture much better than the one I was using.
Ah ha! That's when it dawned on me - again (discovered this Dark Oil Benefit with Grapeseed Oil)! Darker oils tend to be more potent, thicker and overall healthier in nature for your hair.
Benefits of Darker Coloured Oils:
- Unrefined/ Not filtered
- Potent with nutrients
- Thicker in consistency
- Tend to be dark green
- Holds/retains moisture
Be sure to look out for those darker oils that appear "greenish" in colour (Olive oil, Avocado oil, Grapeseed oil etc.) Your hair will thank you!
