Keeping up with all of the natural hair trends and products can be difficult to do. To keep your your hair healthy, it may be tempting to want to try it all, but how do you know what will really work best?
If you haven’t heard of or started using grapeseed oil in your healthy hair care routine, then you may want to consider adding it in. A cheaper, lightweight oil to use to keep your hair at its best, grapeseed oil is extracted from the seeds of grapes and is rich in fatty acids and antioxidants. And, there is little to no smell associated with it.
Still not convinced that it’s a great fit for your hair? Here are a few ways that grapeseed can be beneficial and why you should consider adding our Grapeseed Collection to your hair care regimen.
You’ll be able to use it for your hair year-round.
Unlike most oils, grapeseed oil does not clump up in the colder weather. Although it’s a gloss-like oil, it won’t leave your hair feeling too weighed down or greasy — which can happen when trying to moisturize during certain months of the year. A great grapeseed oil product to use all year would be our Shine Boss Refreshing Sheen Mist.
It’s a good way to fight dandruff.

You’ll slow down the aging process of your hair.
If you’re not hip to the term “free radicals,” you may want to know that they can do some serious damage to your skin and hair. If you’ve started using grapeseed oil or other grapeseed based products, however, the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties found in them can become a natural remedy to both cleanse and nourish your mane. Grapeseed oil also contains active leucoanthocyanins — which have been identified as the most potent antioxidants to fight the damage that free radicals cause the body.
It helps your hair retain moisture.
Anyone in the natural hair community knows that keeping your hair moisturized is one of the most important things that you can do for its health. Though there are plenty of products that can add or help your hair retain moisture (like our Quench Moisture Intensive Leave-In!), the high level of fats found in grapeseed oil will help replenish the moisture your hair requires. Our Rescued! Thirst Quenching Recovery Conditioner is perfect for helping you with that.
You’ll see improvements with your hair’s growth and strength.
Containing both antioxidants and Vitamin E, grapeseed oil has the potential to aid in hair growth and build strength in your tresses. To achieve maximum results, administer the oil in the form of a hot oil treatment for 20 minutes and then proceed with your wash day routine. Our Balance — Grapeseed & Avocado oil will work great for this.
It’s a great heat protectant.
Since grapeseed oil is known to be a lighter oil option than most, applying it before you add heat to your hair (or even before you spend time outside during the warmest months) can be helpful to keeping it healthy. And the best part is your hair won’t be left feeling heavy or greasy.
