Hair is an important physical feature. Your hair is one of the first things people notice when they meet you. Did you know you can take care of your hair's body and health while growing it longer and shinier? You can create amazing natural hair masks with the following five oils to promote hair growth and to keep your mane healthy and shiny.

1. Avocado Oil

Avocado is an exotic fruit, and in some markets, it is considered expensive, but this does not diminish its importance and value. Avocado oil contains vitamins A, B, and E and is a good source of magnesium and copper as well. Avocados are rich in fatty acids and proteins, both of which are essential to fast hair growth. Avocado oil is also thought to increase hair's shine.

2. Jojoba Oil

This is the kind of oil you may find in Fresh Line cosmetics. It comes in a small bottle as a carrying oil and is often mixed with essential oils (which are usually a mixture of concentrated oils and can not be used alone/directly on the scalp as they will make the skin react badly. That is why we use jojoba oil).

Jojoba oil can be used alone and does not have any impact on the skin. It is a great oil to use when you want to moisturize and calm down your scalp. It is also a great treatment for eczema, dandruff, and psoriasis on the scalp. Jojoba Oil will leave you with softer, more manageable hair. This is because it is rich in vitamins E and B, antioxidants, silicon, zinc, and copper. It increases blood flow to the scalp, stimulating hair growth.

3. Almond Oil

Don't forget to consume almonds even when using almond oil. The thing is that you need to nourish from the inside-out first. Almond oil contains vitamin E, essential fatty acids, potassium, and magnesium. It will strengthen your hair, increase its shine, and protect it from breakage. It is a good moisturizer that can help relieve dry, itchy scalp and inflammation.

4. Coconut Oil

From Miranda Kerr to Candice Swanepoel Rosie H-Whiteley, there is no one model that does not use it. Coconut oil is a must. It seals hair follicles to prevent breakage while properly moisturizing the hair. It is packed with vitamins, proteins, and fatty acids, which are essential to your hair growing stronger, longer, and healthier.

Coconut oil helps eliminate hair frizz and dryness by creating shiny and silky hair. It can help improve your scalp's health too because it has antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. You can use it as a face moisturizer as well!

5. Olive Oil

Last but not least, olive oil moisturizes and leaves hair softer and more manageable. It calms the scalp and helps hair grow faster. It is reach in Omega 3s, fatty acids, and vitamin E.

Don't Forget!

Be sure to choose natural oils that penetrate the hair and the scalp when making a hair mask. All of the above oils do.

How to Get Rid of Split Ends in Just 6 Hours

I've got one last mane secret to spill. Have you ever wondered if there is a magical product that can turn your hair into Rapunzel's magical mane? It really exists. It does wonders and I am going to spill the secret in here.

A couple of weeks ago, I was devastated looking at all my split ends and trying to decide if I could walk the path of short hair once again. I did not want to, but those split ends were getting on my nerves, so I was ready to go have a good cut.

Later that day, I decided to soak my head in coconut oil around 12 am. I did not wash my hair until 6 pm. After I semi-blow dried my hair and checked my mane carefully, I realized I did not have any split ends. Not at all. Not even one! Ok, maybe one or two, but they don't really count. So, there you have it: my secret little hair trick. Coconut oil is really magical!

Caution: If your hair is bleached do not use coconut oil because it will burn your hair. Also it is better to opt out colored oils like olive oil, or strong essential oils like tea tree oil, because those will stain your hair and alter your color.

        It is best to use organic coconut oil, but you can use whatever you like as long as you are using it only for your skin or hair (externally).

        Does the brand of coconut oil matter? Organic/not organic and so on?

        aviannovice - You can also use these essential oils for your face too and skin in general. They do a great job at moisturizing your skin, preventing wrinkles and also preventing bacteria from getting into your skin. They may also help unclog the pores leading to a cleaner face.

        MsDora - you can use the oils in every type of hair, they are really phenomenal. I keep mixing the oils up to do hair and skin masks every 3 days at least.

        Good information, for different types of hair, I guess. Thank you.

        I would think that all these oils would be good for your face, too. Does that make sense?
