Product Wish List: Grapeseed Oil

Thursday, August 01, 2013

Over the past couple of years, there's been so much hype around this oil. I faintly remember purchasing and trying this oil out 3-4 years ago. I dont remember how my hair felt while using it. So I'm curious to try it out again.  Based on what I've heard, Grapeseed Oil is known for:
  • Strengthening the hair/follicles. 
  • Reducing moisture loss in the hair - great for sealing. 
  • Light weight oil. Quick absorption. 
  • High in Vitamin E. 
I would like to see how my hair reacts to it. I'll probably try it as a sealant, oil in my deep conditioner and hot oil treatment. Well I'm hoping it's great at reducing moisture loss which, in turn, helps increase length retention. Yay!!

Do you use Grapeseed Oil? If so, what do you like about it? How do you use it in your regimen?

  1. Well you're right about the reducing moisture loss thing because it will keep your hair from drying out too badly.

  2. I use Grape Seed Oil for sealing and I put it on my scalp occasional. It penetrates quickly and does not leave my hair feeling weighed down. I also use it when I flat iron.


  3. Hi Sunshyne, I follow you faithfully. I use grapeseed oil as a sealant. I like it bc its so light. It works really well after a wash & set. The only thing to watch out for is quantity vs quality, i.e. trader joe's grapeseed oil gives you more value in the 8oz (i think) for $5.99. But once I splurged on a gourmet 4oz for $8.99 and it was definitely worth it. But I still alternate btwn the two.

  4. So far i have only used it in my DC under the dryer & it seems as if it did NOT penetrate my hair because after DC'ing, I still seen white conditioner on my hair (as opposed to using EVOO or no oil at all, I see NO white conditioner which, to me, conveys that the products have penetrated through my hair). I'd even seen a girl on YouTube DC with grape seed oil & when she was done, I seen product on her hair too. Hope I made sense :)

  5. I learned that Grapeseed oil is one of the best for sealing so I use it as a sealant sometimes if I don't use coconut oil. I also add it to my conditioner.

  6. I like the napa valley one, you can find it at TJ Maxx.

  7. I first used to use Castor oil as a sealant ( pure, not JBCO) as found on your blog. I have recently started to use it as a sealant. I found it better than castor oil because it really penetrates the hair strand like coconut oil, it is very light but lasting, and it gives a subtle sheen. It has helped me retain moisture without weighing my hair down, and has helped to smooth the cuticle (it is high in natural ceramides).It does not seem to cause build up on the hair like Castor oil did.
    I give it a 5/5 and highly recommend it!

  8. its the!!! its wonderful for sealing...light but very moisturizing.

  9. I have used it and its fine, it seals so does the job

  10. This oil has been on my wishlist is not available in my country. It's really hard out here as far as finding top quality {"everything bad"-free} products are journeys are a new thing and hopefully with time, more products will be available here too!!

  11. I am not too crazy about oils, but I would love to try it.
    P.S: I have been following you for over 2 years now. I love the work you are doing. Keep it up!

  12. Hi Sunshyne! I love grape seed oil!! It's super light, hydrating and doesn't have a scent... I use it as a sealant and because it has a really high boiling point it is a great heat protectant before you heat style... Can't wait to see your review :)
