Especially superior in dealing with split ends. Moisturizers penetrate the hair shaft and condition the scalp. These oils work best in water and water-based leave-ins. Sealants Castor oil has natural antibacterial and antifungal properties and is high in Vitamin E, minerals, proteins, and Omega 6 and 9 beneficial fatty acids. Its unusually high ricinoleic acid ratio which all aid in hair re-growth and thickness.

Can also be used as a moisturizer. Moisturizers: Coconut oil rich in essential fatty acids and vitamins nourishes the scalp and helps to remove sebum build up. ´ ´ Olive oil’s primary chemical elements are oleic acid, palmitic acid, and squalene.
