Pamela has just found out about oil rinsing and because my hair terminology video was so helpful, she wants an explanation for how to do an oil rinse on natural hair.


Hair Tip #1 Oil Rinse on Freshly Shampooed Hair and Rinse With Warm to Cool Water


Begin with product free freshly shampoo washed hair to give you your best results. To make sure that the result of your oil rinse was purely from this oil washing process, you have to wash your hair with a sulfate shampoo for a deep cleanse that will strip away and grim or possible product buildup from your hair. Do not regularly use a sulfate shampoo to serve as your regimen shampoo, only use a sulfate shampoo to deep cleanse your hair.

Hair Tip #2 Oil Rinsing Gives Incredible Moisturizing Affects Softer and More Manageable Hair


The oils that you decide to use for your oil rinse on natural hair or to oil rinse on relaxed hair will depend on how well your hair cooperates with specific oils. For example, if Shea butter is too heavy for your hair, Shea oil will also give you to heavy of a result when oil rinsing. Opt for light oils like coconut, jojoba and possibly castor oil depending on the nature of your hair as well!
