3 Hair Oils That Work For Natural Hair

Editor note: There will be a few more posts coming out about Natural hair coming up shortly. Shoot me an email or comment below if there is anything that you want me to cover!

When it comes to our natural hair, we have to be very careful when it comes to choosing the right products. We have to ensure that we are protecting our royal manes every day. I like to add hair pomade and oils to my hair in order to maintain its moisture and promote the hair growth process. My personal favourites are avocado butter, which contains avocado, shea butter and coconut oil. It smells really great and works well too! Usually when I apply the product 2 days back to back, I’m able to keep my hair moisturized until the end of the week. 

All of this depends on the type of natural hair you have of course!

To help you out with choosing hair oils for your natural hair, here are 3 that I believe to do the best job in locking moisture, protecting and promoting hair growth for most natural hair types:

Avocado oil
This is probably my most favourite type of oil out there! Apart from the fact that I absolutely LOVE avocados, they’re packed with amazing benefits for natural hair. With it’s super thick and rich texture, it aids in making your natural hair feel so much softer, smoother and healthier! It’s natural biotin, vitamins A, B-5, and E properties, keep the hair strong, promote hair growth and repair it as well! It’s the perfect ingredient for your natural hair care.

Jojoba oil
This oil is the BEST for scalp massages! I used to watch videos on Youtube of girls filming a 10 minute video of them massaging the scalp and thinking, “What is the point of that?”. It wasn’t until I tried it for myself that I discovered its benefits. Jojoba oil is great for scalp massages since it works wonders as a protective sealant when your hair is damp. It also helps with dandruff control! I heard from a little birdie that it can prevent hair loss and promote thickness -- sounds like a sweet deal! It’s best to use unrefined jojoba, which typically has a gold colour. Check Amazon or Walmart if you would like to purchase it.

Coconut oil
Coconut oil works WONDERS in my hair! At first, I thought that it dried out my strands, but as I kept using it, I discovered that it made my hair much more moisturized and manageable. Plus it smells amazing! *FUN FACT*: I absolutely hate the taste of coconut but I love it as an oil in my hair. Isn’t that strange?! Can anyone else relate? Apart from the fact that it smells great, coconut oil has quite a variety of benefits for natural hair. It’s rare in the sense that it deeply penetrates your hair strands, unlike most oils that simply seal in moisture. As it does this, the hair becomes moisturized and develops improved elasticity. It’s best to grab the organic oils rather than those that contain other additives. You can find these at your local drugstore or even at a store location that primarily sells natural products.


So there you have it! 
3 different hair oils that are perfect for your natural hair! 
Give them a try and let me know what you think! 
Which one was your favourite?


  1. Thanks for these tips. I use about 5 oils mixed together: coconut, tea tree, almond, olive and Jamaican black castor oil. I think I may swap out two for avocado and jojoba.

  2. I saw the most length retention when I sealed my ends nightly with coconut oil. I’ll have to try our avocado oil soon tho. Need to grow back my edges

  3. Wow I've never used jojoba or avocado oil on my hair, but i live by coconut and castor oil. I'm with Morgan I really need my edges back!
