    We’ve used olive oil on both my son & daughters hair and loved the results. I’m not a fan of using a lot of different products on their hair. Have heard a lot about coconut oil and will try to start using that as a sealant / protectant for their strands.

    the best hair growth oil is thd castor oil should be organic and pure mix one big spoon with 2 large spoons of coconut oil must also be pure and organic heat little on microwave but do not heat it.. massage your clean scalp with the mixer with massage and leave over night wash as usual second day should be used twice a week and leave the scalp neat and clean for the rest of days because much oil make the hair fall down. also use tonic for hair growth its wonderful and make the Hair follicles active and help hair growing. I tried sorcer with garlic tonic and Japanese kaminomoto tonic both are great i have also my home made tonic which great will tell how to make next time. kuku

    I just found this website 2 hours ago and I am beyond grateful. I have dry and damaged hair because back when I was around 6-9 my mom would use Just for Me hair relaxer every 3 months or so to relax my hair so it could be easier to braid my hair. About maybe 2 or 3 years later, the sides of my hair started to fall off badly and my hair was so damaged. Years passed and now I am 12 years of age. Thankfully the sides of my hair grew back thanks to my mother. I am still trying to get my hair to not get dried so easily so I will buy one of the products in this website.
