Anyone know a good blog or post on oils?

I'm looking for something that lists a bunch of different oils and what each one does forthe hair. More than just the usual olive oil and coconut and jojoba. So if you know a good site or can find a good post in here on it let me know. I did a search but couldn't find exactly what I was looking for. Thanks!

    There are some good links in this thread to companies that sell oils and list the benefits of each one.


    Also: A reliable source says that one of our own bloggers will be blogging SOON about Oils. :angel8: keep your eyes open....

    Check out this page I dug up today! I think it's just what you're looking for:

    Along with this thread that I started just today, asking about oils. I got some good replies and recommendations for specific oils. I guess we are thinking along the same lines? : )
