Lightest Oils For Hair

RoswentheRoswenthe Posts: 66Registered Users
I have extremely fine, 2b wavy hair. I'd like to use an oil or mix of oils to keep the frizzies at bay. I tried coconut oil yesterday, and maybe I got too much, but it didn't sink in and looked greasy, plus being solid at room temp makes it harder to get the right amount.

Suggestions for a very light oil?
Averages out at 2b, ranges from 1c to 3a, very fine
Mane 'n Tail co-wash + leave-in

Clarifying shampoo every few weeks
Lavender Allergy

    I think almond, grapeseed, and apricot oils are light. I've only tried the grapeseed. Hope I helped some!

    i use tones of oils for my hair for lots of different things. while my hair is pretty crazy, 3c i can use heavier oils as well though when i leave it in, for sealing for example, i like to use light oils.
    coconut is one of my favs, though i know not all curlies, particually wavy girls, can use it. try melting it in your hands, or put it on a heater first, use less. that is if you want to try it again.
    if not, same really light oils are: grapeseed oil, aprecot oil and my personal fav, argan oil. try argan oil, though it has to be pure. it is reather expensive though its very well worth it, you only need a little bit.
    hope i helped a bit.

    my hair: 3b, high porosity, high density and coarse hair (i think i finally figured that all out)
    my hair loves conditioner only styling!
    Oils and my own procuts are my hairs best friend
    my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.

    You should try hazel nut oil, argan oil, grape seed oil, camellia oil, and one you would really like is fractionated coconut oil....its very light

    I like olive oil, argan oil and coconut oil. Grapeseed oil makes my hair look greasy but it works on my daughter's hair.
