Hi, I'm Verna

product reviews

Listed are just a few of the benefits of the 11 oils of Righteous Roots Oils. I tried to cover some interesting things I found, but there is a vast amount of info. & benefits for each oil than what I’m able to list…to list them all would take up too much space. On another note, this product has a patent. I’ve been using this oil since Nov. 2016 and is my favorite oil product…if you scroll down my page you’ll see how much my hair and scalp has benefited. 

Note: Not all plats are created equal/ A properly defined botanical of an essential oil will include the Latin name of the genus or type of plant followed by a species description. It’s a better identifier than the simple common name. It’s important to identify the oil specifically by Latin name for safety reasons.

Scientists have observed that hair treated with oil eventually slowed both processes of absorption and diffusion of water from hair fibers, which means less hygral fatigue occurs, which means less stress on strands that could make them more vulnerable. Essentially, this means that, although oil treated hair can’t necessarily gain moisture, it’s able to retain whatever moisture is already existing very well.

Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil

Packed with rich medium fatty acids (caprylic, lauric, capric), vitamins, antiviral, antimicrobial, antifungal properties & rich in antioxidants. The molecules are quite small which helps with absorption for conditioning and moisturizing benefits. If you have dandruff or dry hair, the fatty acids in the coconut oil help improve these conditions.

When coconut oil is used on the scalp it helps fight infections, fungus, & supports hair growth. According to the Journal of Cosmetic Science, coconut oil out performs sunflower oil and mineral oil and is the only oil that reduces protein loss. The lauric acid has a low molecular weight and is able to actually penetrate the hair shaft. Coconut oil helps to tame frizz by penetrating into the curls.

Ricinus Commmunis (Jamaican Black Castor) Oil
Many of castor oil’s benefits come down to its chemical composition. It’s classified as a type of triglyceride fatty acid and is a mixture of several different fatty acids. The major component is ricineic acid with the remainder being comprised of oleic, linoleic, stearic and other acids.

Castor oil is known for its emollient and lubricant properties as well as film-forming capabilities. The chemical structure helps it act as a humectant, so that it attracts water to the hair. It contains antifungal, antibacterial properties that can clear up dandruff and scalp infections. It also contains omega-6 fatty acids to make hair shine. It goes to the root of the problem and improves circulation to the hair follicles.

Oleacea (Olive) Oil
It has omega 3 fatty acids, alpha-linoleic acid, vitamin E (an antioxidant & lipid protector with the ability to keep strands moisturized) oleic acid, palmitic acid and squareness. These are all emollients which are compounds that make hair soft.
Researchers have found that olive oil plays an important part in protecting hair from physical damage.

Persea Americana Mill (Avocado) Oil

It contains polyunsaturated fatty acids (linoleic acid), plant sterols (betasitosterol), palmitic acid (emollient properties, softens hair without a greasy or sticky residue, promotes the growth of shiny hair), stearic acid (has cleansing properties that purge dirt, sweat & excess sebum from hair and skin, condition & protects hair from damage), oleic acid (maintain softness, suppleness, stimulates growth, eliminates dandruff), alpha-linolenic acid , archidic acid and gadoleic acid (has emollient properties), beta-carotene, lethicin, minerals and vitamins A, C, D, B6 and E. It strengthens, nourishes hair.

Vitis Vinifera (Grapeseed) Oil
Researchers have discovered that this oil can help defeat the hormone dihydrotestosterone(DHT), which stops the hair follicle growth cycle. It can help stimulate hair growth. Contains more vitamin E than olive oil. Its components are: Vitamin E, Vitamin C, Stearic acid, Palmtic acid, Omega 6 & 9 fatty acids, Oleic acid, Linolenic acid, Flavonoids like oligomeric procyanidin (primarily known for their antioxidant properties)

Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Oil
It can help retain natural hair color and minimize hair loss. It can also prevent premature graying. It helps circulate the blood in the scalp and thereby promotes hair growth. It’s also highly penetrative which helps heal chemical damage and supplies nourishment to your hair shaft and follicles.

The anti-bacterial effects of the sesame oil can help eliminate pathogens or foreign bodies than can attack your scalp or hair. It helps relieve dry scalp, dandruff and hair loss. It has high levels of antioxidants. It’s components include minerals (such as magnesium, calcium, phosphorus and protein that strengthen the hair from the root and deeply nourishes), vitamins, phytosterols, polyunsaturated fatty acids, topcopherols and unique class of lignans such as sesamin and sesamolin. Properties found in sesame oil have been shown to protect scalp and hair from up to 30% of UV rays (ncbi.nlm.nih.gov)

Simmondsia Chinesis Seed (Jojoba) Oil

Its unique characteristic is that it closely resembles sebum so it acts as a natural conditioner. This oil can seep into the hair follicles and dissolve sebum build up, clearing up blockage and facilitating the growth of new hair. Contains vitamin E, vitamin B complex, antifungal & anti inflammatory properties. Replenishes the moisture and improves the texture of hair. Treats dry scalp and gets rid of dandruff. Adds shine and softens hair.

Argania Spinosa (Argan) Oil

Rich in essential fatty acids, vitamin E and other vital nutrients. Packed with antioxidants, omega 6 fatty acids and linoleic acid. When applied externally, tricopherol from the vitamin E helps to boost cell production while promoting healthy skin & hair. Helps to tame frizz and fly-ways.

    I’m still hesitating to try this out but I have seen some amazing growth results from other people. I guess I’m still on the fence because I haven’t used any oils in such a long time and my scalp tends to be pretty sensitive to certain essential oils. Thank you for all of the wonderful information that you work so hard to put together! My IG handle is floridianamber.

  32. I came here from your IG giveaway, but cannot believe what I’ve been missing out on! Just this one article is so thoughtfully well-written and informative.
    I have a question – can RR rx oil be used as a pre-poo treatment with similar benefits as their pre-poo oil? I have a couple of bottles of rx and was wondering if this a good use of it or just wasteful (given that the shampoo will wash away all RX goodness)?
    Thank you for doing what you do. I subscribed to your website and can not wait to read more interesting content. My IG handle is @tamali2009
