jojoba oil. now what?

beeduhbeeduh Posts: 684Registered Users
So I have bought some jojoba oil to try. The question is, how do I use it? Can I add my own EO to it for smell? Do I dilute it? Use it straight from the bottle?
CG as of Feb. 2012
combination hair.
2c on top - low elasticity
3a&b scattered underneath - normal elasticity.
fine texture. thin density. A lot of it.
porosity: normal to high.
loves protein and moisture.
BSACV as needed.

products may vary. i'm a PJ.
loving Curl Junkie, Curly Kinks, and AS I Am.

    I use mine straight from the bottle as well as add mine to some conditioner to add sheen to my hair.

    So do you put it in when your hair is dripping wet? Towel dry it slightly and then put it in? Is it ok to add EO to it? What kind of products do you add after?

    I use it alone on my hair when it's dry normally to add some sheen to my 2nd day hair or third day... I've added EVERYTHING with EVOO and depending on the wether here (in dc) it's the greatest thing since sliced bread (in winter mostly) or too heavy (because of the evoo weighing my hair down) . I've also added the oil to soaking wet hair and slept with it in over night (as a dry DC or wet DC) and it works GREAT! Just do a little experimenting with it. I've found this oil is the one my hair and skin love the most. It doesn't make me feel like its "sitting" on my hair.

    I use mine for sealing (on very wet hair, over LI, under stylers) and in dry hair to touch up fly-always and add shine!

    In dry hair I put a few drops on my palm, rub, then smooth over.
