There are a myriad of products on the market that promise to nourish, hydrate, strengthen and protect your hair. They’re laced with ingredients that can be detrimental to your hair and are churned out in factories. While those buys keep the billion dollar beauty industry buzzing, they’re not always the best option for women looking to get ideal care for their hair.

Sometimes, the best products can be found in the kitchen. If a product is edible, that doesn’t mean it won’t work wonders on your strands. In fact, if the products we list are safe enough for you to eat, then you can fairly assume it should be harmless when applied topically to your hair (using our tips).

When used correctly, hair is shinier, softer and lighter after being coated with an oil from your kitchen pantry. Not every oil will give you saturated, stringy hair and regardless of it’s texture, your hair needs oil to survive.

    OMG thank you so much for this info. I did my big chop about 3 months ago and I just ran out of Olive oil. After moisturizing I used only coconut oil to seal my hair and thanks to you I now know THAT was my BIG mistake. I have the tightest afro ever and that’s not even the bad part. The bad part is, it’s feels like a DRY brillo pad. Thanks so much for spreading the knowledge. I’m going straight to the store after I post this! lol
