Jojoba oil is perfect for all skin types
Jojoba oil is a botanical extract taken from a plant that is native to the Sonoran Desert, which is located in Northwest Mexico and the US’s Southwest. Experts within the beauty industry believe that it is an amazing moisturiser that can soften the scalp and skin.
Both men and women can take advantage of this golden nectar as it can make the skin emollient, even areas that are shaved often such as the face and legs. This versatile oil can even be used to make hair more shiny and manageable.
Using Jojoba Oil for the face
Jojoba oil is a universal beauty treatment as it works well with any skin type. The resplendent liquid works well with the oils - sebum - that naturally coats our skin so it is able to replenish and revive dry skin and also gets rid of the excess oil that causes greasy skin.
You may not know that it has anti-bacterial properties as well as the power to perfectly moisturise. Before the invention of topical medicines Native Americans used it for centuries to prevent and treat infections that appear on our bodies.
As it also contains elements that make give it an anti-inflammatory, making it a natural treatment for skin conditions like acne. Other products designed to rid the face of spots and blemishes can actually worsen the problem, but as Jojoba oil is an organic, non-greasy remedy and a naturally occurring antiseptic.
The perfect body moisturiser
Due to the fact that it is a waxy substance, Jojoba Oil can act as an effective barrier for parts of your body that are exposed to the elements, such as the face. Below are a few best practices for using this oil on the skin.
If applied to the body just after a bath or shower it has the power to make even the driest skin smooth and silky.
Many people suffer with dry and cracked feet and calloused hands - two conditions that can be combated with Jojoba oil.
You can use it to boost the effects of your regular moisturiser or you can use it on its own as an intense treatment. Try coating your feet with a few drops and sticking in your socks. Leave for at least an hour, or overnight to let the oil deeply penetrate the skin. Your feet will thank you as they’ll be soft and smooth once you release them from the socks.
How to use Jojoba oil for the hair
This essential oil can be used in a few different ways to condition the hair, making it lustrous and manageable. You can add a few drops to your regular conditioner to moisturise and boost your tresses, making them shiny and, more importantly, healthy. Rubbing a little of the oil through the hair before drying will also help add a glossy quality to your locks.
If you’re planning to go away this summer, don’t forget to pack the oil as it can protect your hair against damage from the chlorine in swimming pools and the high levels of salt found in the sea.
It can be used to moisturise the scalp as well. The oil is able to clean away crusted sebum residue, that can block the pores causing dandruff. Try massaging a couple of drops into the scalp to relieve any dryness.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
