Here's how to use grapeseed oil on your curls. After you've given this amazing oil a try, let us know which treatment you prefer!
How To Use Grapeseed Oil On Your Curls
If your curls are very dry or brittle, a deep conditioning treatment might be needed. Take 6 tablespoons of grapeseed oil, 6 tablespoons of almond or jojoba oil, and 10 drops of lavender essential oils. Place in a bowl, and combine until blended.
Wash your strands with your favorite shampoo. This would be a great time to clarify your curls. Apply the product throughout your strands, from midshaft down. If you have very dry roots, you can apply there as well, but this can be heavy for finer curls. Cover, and allow the product to sit for 60 minutes. Apply heat if you'd like. Rinse out with warm water.
For curls that are sluggish or a scalp cakes with dandruff, a scalp massage can be just the ticket. Mix 6 tablespoons of grapeseed oil, and 12 drops of rosemary, peppermint, or tea tree oil together.
Divide your curls into 6 even parts to expose your scalp. Warm the oil, but don't overheat it. Apply the oil throughout your strands, and use your fingertips to massage it into your scalp. Work through with slow, even circles to help break up dandruff. This will also increase blood flow and circulation to your scalp.
While we try to avoid using heat on curls, sometimes its unavoidable. Therefore, having a good heat protectant is important. Mix 6 tablespoons of grapeseed oil, 8 drops of Vitamin E oil, and pour into a squeeze bottle or spray bottle. Mix all the ingredients together until blended.
When you're ready to use a heat tool on your curls, mix up the spray bottle again. Spray evenly throughout your strands, and allow to dry. This will protect your curls during the heat tool use.
