Grapeseed oil doesn’t get as much love as it should because it is not as trendy as jojoba, coconut, olive, Argan, or even castor oil. However, it is one of the most lightweight oils available. Its ability to condition and seal moisture into the hair is top-notch. Also, grapeseed oil is non-greasy and absorbs easily into the hair, skin and scalp. In cold seasons, grapeseed oil is a great alternative to coconut oil, which can solidify and leave little lumps on the hair due to cooler temperatures.
Now let us look at the properties of this liquid gold (amazing oil ;-))
- It has no odor so you won’t have to worry about layering on perfume to cover it.
- It is light, so it won’t leave your hair feeling weighed down. This property makes this oil great for people with thin hair that is easily weighed down or people who like to layer on many different products.
- It has antiseptic properties and is a mild astringent which are both help keep the scalp healthy and fight dandruff. Hot oil treatments with grapeseed oil leave hair shiny and fight scalp dryness.
- It contains Vitamin E, a natural antioxidant that helps to heal and build tissues. Vitamin E reduces inflammation, heals the scalp, and promotes healthy hair follicles which, in turn results in healthy hair growth.
- It is hypoallergenic, which makes it a perfect choice for everyone, including curlies with sensitive scalps.
