Sometimes It feels like I’m greasing up my scalp everyday, especially now that it’s winter. It’s more like every two days to be honest.
When it comes to oils I have tried a few, I’ve tried; avocado oil, coconut oil, olive oil and pumpkin seed oil. I still want to try black Jamaican castor oil and shea oil, to see if that does anything for my thirsty ass hair. But Olive Oil is the one for me at the moment.
I have the Deep Penetrating Oil from Mashooq, a UK based hair and beauty range, that is suitable for all hair and skin types.
The Deep Penetrating Oil is a blend of six oils;coconut, sweet almond, olive, sunflower, palm and wheat germ oil. This oil is specifically for afro-Caribbean textured hair that needs some extra mositure/hydration.
There are several different ways to use this oil. I just decided to use it as a styling oil. I went for a twist style for work, a combination of a few flat twists and some single twists as well.
I like that this oil smells fresh and natural. Smells a lot like sunflower oil, very subtle but nice.
How I Used It
When I finished all the twists I then poured some more oil into my hands and lightly worked it into my hair, mainly into my scalp and the single twists. I then put on my head Scalp and then my Softhood Hair Dryer Attachment and turned the hair dryer on for 20 minutes. I thought this would help the oil penetrate my scalp.
It was really easy to use and I didn’t get that sticky, nasty greasy feeling. There was no irritation, I did have a little flaking, which I am putting down to some product buildup. I should have worked on clean hair first.
Out of 5?
*Update: I might have to try this oil again as I only used small amounts when styling, which could have been the reason why my hair didn’t feel moisturiesed.
