The Benefits of Jojoba Oil
for Diverse Hair Types

Listen to the article


We know that not all hair types are alike, which is why we curate our products with diverse ingredients to meet hair’s unique needs. While we use a variety of ingredients, we always focus on the highest-quality brought to you by nature. No added parabens or dyes means no detours from your natural beauty! Here, we’ll show you the many benefits of jojoba oil for healthy, strong hair.

Who Should Use Jojoba Oil?

Curly and coily haired friends, rejoice, because jojoba oil is especially beneficial for you! The consistency of jojoba oil allows it to more easily be distributed throughout hair, reaching even the coiliest of coils. The best part is that the sky’s the limit. With thicker, coarser hair, it’ll be more difficult to overdo it. In other words, there’s no fear of weighing down your curls while getting the right amount of moisture and frizz control you need. It’s literally your time to shine.

While jojoba oil could be considered the curly hair whisperer, it’s still packed with benefits for all hair types. Rich in nutrients, jojoba oil can aid in the rehydration of any hair type by coating the strands and protecting them from things like hot tools and weather elements. As an oil, its properties can also reduce the appearance of split ends while preventing further breakage.

An added benefit of using jojoba oil is that it can reduce frizz, giving your hair its natural sleek and shine back. However, keep in mind that finer hair types won’t need nearly as much as curly or textured hair – too much oil can weigh down fine strands. Use sparingly and focus on the ends of your hair, where most damage and dryness occurs.

How to Use Jojoba Oil for Your Hair

Since it’s considered a hair protectant and moisturizer, jojoba oil can come to the rescue any time you need strength or shine. A quick way to incorporate it into your routine is by applying it to your dry hair before washing. This can be especially helpful for curly or textured hair that’s sensitive to shampooing. The oil will aid your strands in maintaining their natural moisture and texture, while still getting the clean they need.

If you find your hair is calling out for some extra moisture and repair, try adding a few drops of jojoba oil to your conditioner or detangling products and use as normal. Want even more benefits? Massage the oil into your hair from root to tip and leave overnight. Wash it out with shampoo in the morning and condition as usual for a total jojoba wakeup call.
