I can honestly say that I have found a keeper. It's not as expensive as EVOO and EVCO, but provides just the right amount of moisture. Sunflower oil also has a great amount of Vitamin E, which is wonderful for us curly/natural folks.
Homemade hair conditioner:
Sunflower & Wheatgerm Oil
Mix 1 cup of sunflower oil and 1 cup of wheat germ oil. Warm the mixture and massage it on the head and hair. Wash off with lukewarm water in which one tablespoon of lemon juice has been added.
One thing I did read that it does not penetrate the hair like coconut oil, but I did notice that my hair did love this.
Ojon’s oil treatment consists of palm oil, fragrance, and a few extracts. It’s particularly interesting because recent research has shown that only SOME oils will actually penetrate the hair. Mineral oil and sunflower oil, for example, will not penetrate. But coconut oil (which is essentially the same as palm oil) will filter deep into the cortex because it is so similar to hair’s natural lipids.http://thebeautybrains.com/2006/05/24/is-ojon-restorative-treatment-any-good/
Try it for yourself, you might just like it!
