Is anyone using Jojoba oil?

Hi there,

I found that 100% Jojoba Oil product: "Desert Essence Jojoba Oil for Hair, Skin and Scalp," and it sounds promising. Are any of you using something like that with your CG routine?

If you are, do you use it for your scalp, your hair, both? How do you use it? What are the results? Can something like that cause a build-up? Does it really deal with scalp itchiness?

Thanks!

Edited:

Oh, and could it be somehow used for hot oil treatment?

    It can be used as a leave-in on wet hair. But only use a few drops rubbed in your hands, then smoothed and raked through, or your hair will look greasy. It can also be used to smooth canopy frizz on dry hair. But again, only use a few drops.

    Thanks! Does it mean you wouldn't use it on the scalp? Using it as a leave-in sounds good, but I wonder what it takes to wash it off (if I used more or used it on my scalp).

    A cowash should get the jojoba oil out.

    I love it. Even though it's an oil it doesn't seem too greasy, if that makes any sense. It's great for skin too if you have dry patches or flaky skin.

    It comes out easily as well.

    I love using oils in my hair treatments. I will frequently rake a few drops of oil (usually avocado) in my hair after I partially rinse out my conditioner.

    My absolute favorite oil is avocado because my hair responds wonderfully to it. I wind up with soft, shiny,and bouncy curls. Coconut oil also works well for my curls. Jojoba oil, however, left my hair a bit frizzy. I still haven't been able to diagnose exactly why it does it, but it's something to watch out for when using it.

    All these oils work well at a DT also. I will normally comb about a tablespoon or even 2 through my hair and leave it on overnight and co-wash in the morning. Leaves my hair very soft and shiny.

    I use Jojoba oil, after I cowash. Just a few drops to moisturize my hair. Always on wet hair.

    Or I use this oil as a deep treatment every 2 weeks, with some drops of essential oils.

    Also, I use it in my home made recipes (home made creams, balms...).
