10 Benefits Of Jojoba Oil For Natural Hair 

  • Sebum’s Sista – Our sebaceous glands produce liquid gold naturally for our scalps. Jojoba oil is the closest oil to Sebum, the natural oil produced by our glands so it’s the perfect multi-purpose oil to add into your routine.
  • Moisturizes natural hair – Jojoba is the perfect oil to moisturize all of your natural hair because of it’s ability to seal off the hair shaft making it perfect for your LCO routine.
  • Adds volume to thinning hair – Jojoba is very rich in different vitamins that help natural hair be healthy and full. The biggest factor in healthy natural hair is moisture retention, so the idea is that jojoba moisturizes the hair enough to promote growth and volume.
  • Controls oil production on the scalp – If your scalp isn’t producing enough sebum, your hair is going to be dull and weak. If your scalp is producing too much sebum your hair is going to be greasy and possibly have flaky scalp. Applying a few drops of jojoba oil will help your natural oil production find a healthy balance.
  • Strengthens hair – Jojoba’s molecular make up allows it to get inside the hair shaft better than any other oil, healing from the inside out.

  • Makes natural hair shiny – Moisturized hair is happy hair. Happy hair is shiny. Got it? Good!
  • Cleans scalp – The antioxidants in jojoba oil fight bacteria and fungus that can plague your scalp. Also, jojoba oil cleans blocked/clogged hair follicles.
  • Aids in hair color retention – Coloring your natural hair is a fun way to switch things up but the upkeep can be intense. Jojoba helps close your hair cuticles and protects from harmful chemicals stripping the color from your hair. Add a few drops to your shampoo and/or conditioner to help keep your color and curls poppin’!
  • Treats dry scalp and dandruff – Jojoba helps heal dry scalp and dandruff. It penetrates deep into the scalp and helps keep your scalp happy and healthy.
  • Encourages hair growth – In order for natural hair to grow, it has to have a good foundation, i.e. your scalp. If you use jojoba regularly your happy scalp will lead to natural hair growth.
