Argan + Castor oil - Courtesy Curly Nikki's blog

Hi Friends!

Hope you are all having a fab weekend even though it is ending.

I read a post on Curly Nikki's blog and it is about moisturizing with Argan and Castor oils. You can read the blog post here.

For those of you in Lagos, Nigeria (or Nigeria), getting these oils may be a bit of an assignment. Please, I beg, share with us if you know where we can buy PURE Argan or Castor oil. Another thing to note is that in Nigeria these oils may be called something else so please I beg, share if you know the local name.

Also, we would love to know if there are other oils that work miracles for your natural hair. We all need a little inspiration!

Keep it natural!

Omozo.

I heard great things about palm oil for deep conditioning. a plus is that it is easily to buy in Nigeria. Only problem is that it is messy to use and stains clothing permanently so you've got to wear something you don't mind damaging when using (like an old t-shirt).

Castor oil shouldn't be a problem, just go to a pharmacy and ask, it'll probably not be cold pressed but hey it's better than nothing. As for Argan, I have no clue, maybe those upscale supermarkets, better yet if you have someone in jand or yankee.

@Ola: Thanks for the palm oil tip. Will look into it and get more info. Have you tried it? How did you use it and what were the results?

Omozo said...

@Omosi: I was told that pharmacies in Lagos carry castor oil - will def check it out. Hmmm ... Argan oil seems to be the one to look for. I wonder what the alternative could be?

Wow! Argan is expensive. I often use jojoba oil too.

Omozo said...

@Osayi: I have not tried jojoba oil. Will do some research and do a post. Thanks for the tip.
