    I found it at Walmart, in the hair section (next to the "ethnic hair" section, my walmart has a small section with products from South America/Mexico, I found it there) - it was under $3, pure sweet almond oil, nothing else added

    Sorry for my long reply, lol, I guess I like online shopping :D Plus, I'm on an island that you have to take a ferry to get anywhere and when we do get to the mainland I am always rushed through the grocery store by hubby. I've learned to love ordering things online, but I avoid shipping costs at all cost, lol.

    I have some of this left over from when my threading lady told me it would help my eyebrows grow thicker. Didn't work for that. Is it supposed to help with hair growth or conditioning?

    Like all oils, it's moisturizing. Almond oil has similar properties to olive oil. It partly penetrates the hair shaft and it's good for reducing frizz and tangles. It has less scent though.

    I've never heard of it increasing growth or thickness. I don't think any oils do that.
