Oils Haul: Got My Coconut, Grapeseed & Avocado Oil

Saturday, June 20, 2009

I went to Planet Organic food store and found some Avocado oil (finally), Organic virgin coconut oil, and grapeseed oil.

I can't wait to add these oils into my regimen. I'm thinking about adding them to my protein conditioners and using EVOO (Extra virgin olive oil) and Honey strictly for my moisture deep conditioners - we'll see.

Side note, I'm so glad I found non-deodorized virgin coconut oil close to home and for a reasonable price ($11). It's so rare!

  9. @ InOtherWords - There's 2 locations, 1 at Bathurst & center I beleive - near Promenade Mall and the other is at Bayview and Hwy 7. The Avocado oil was approx. $16, Coconut oi was $11 and the Grapeseed was about $7-8.

    @ Charisse - EVOO and Honey is a great addition to any moisturizing DC. You should try it out. I use EVOO on my skin daily and it's so soft and moist. I see a huge difference.

    @ Traycee - Hey Traycee, long time no chat. Thanks for stopping by. I can't wait to try it out...I'll let you know how it goes.

    @ Shacurra - Well I did a little bit of research. From what I gather, oils in it's purest form perform best (more potent), so I just shopped around for oils that were 100% pure/organic/unrefined.

    @ Vanessa - Thanks girl, man...now I'm really itching to try it out. How do you like to use it?
