Those of you that have read TCC for a while know that coconut oil is my ride or die for natural moisturizing products. Recently, I’ve been tipped off to almond oil for use with my hair. My hair game has been struggling big time recently and i’m not sure why. I’ve never had my hair break off as much as it has this winter and so now I’m trying to play catch-up with it. Almond oil has definitely been helping and if you are someone that doesn’t like the strong smell of coconut oil, then almond oil is for you.
Here are some benefits:
-Almond oil prevents hair fall to a great extent due to the rich source of magnesium.
-Gets rid of split ends because it has antioxidants, vitamins, and essential minerals that restore and rejuvenate the hair follicles.
-It reduces scalp inflammation because of the content of fatty acids moisturizes and softens the scalp tissues and also improves blood circulation.
It has a ton of health and skin benefits too but I have not used it for those purposes yet!
Here is how I use it:
- Wet my hair And comb it: Almond oil gets absorbed very easily into wet hair. Remove tangles from your wet hair with the help of a wide-tooth comb before starting almond oil hair conditioning treatment.
- Wrap my hair: Cover my hair with a shower cap and allow the oil to absorb into my scalp and hair for about an hour. Sometimes I will leave it on overnight.
- Apply to dry hair: I apply the sweet almond oil to my dry hair tips whenever I feel them becoming dry.
