What are Carrier Oils...And What is Sealing?

Another group of oils besides Essential Oils are Carrier Oils (CO). CO's are usually extracted from seeds or nuts and are best used unadulterated and natural as possible. CO's can serve as moisturizers and strengthers for hair. Individuals also use CO's to seal hair. Sealing is when you first apply a leave in into damp hair and then following up with CO on the ends of your hair, to trap in moisture and nutrients. 

Three popular Carrier Oils include: 

OLIVE OIL 

 JOJOBA OIL

COCONUT OIL
