In today’s blog, it’s all about Righteous Roots Oils.

I’d like to think of myself as a little bit of an oil connoisseur. I love trying new oils and experimenting with different blends, especially when it comes to my hair care routine. I use them for everything from cooking, skincare, and hair care. They are versatile and can be used in so many different ways.

Today I will be talking about the benefits of using Righteous Roots Oils.

I was introduced to this brand a few years ago and I have been loving their oils ever since. I love using it to massage my scalp, as a pre-poo treatment, and as a hot oil treatment. It has a really calming scent and helps me unwind after a long day.

If you’re looking for an all-natural, high-quality oil, then Righteous Roots Oils is the brand for you. Their oils are affordable, versatile, and best of all, they work wonders on all hair types.

The oils in Righteous Roots Oils are broken down as follows.

Coconut oil - benefit of righteous roots oils

Packed with rich medium fatty acids (caprylic, lauric, capric), vitamins, antiviral, antimicrobial, antifungal properties and 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, and 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 also helps to tame frizz by penetrating into the curls.
