What is oil rinsing?

Oil rinsing is basically applying oil to your hair and allowing it to sit for 10-20 minutes. You can shampoo or co wash your hair first (I typically co wash first) then oil rinse your hair. Depending on how much time I have I may opt to sit under the dryer for 10-20 mins. I then wash the oil out of my hair then apply a conditioner. At this time you can choose to detangle or proceed to style your hair. 

The benefits of oils rinsing are:

  •  Makes your hair easier to detangle
  •  Moisture retention
  •  Less single strand knots ( those are the devil LOL)
  •  Softer and shinier hair

Oils to use:

  •  Avocado oil
  •  Castor oil
  •  Coconut oil
  •  Olive oil
  •  Grapeseed oil
  •  Jojoba oil
