I am so sorry for the mini hiatus. Its been a busy month and honestly I have been slacking a little but I am trying to catch up with everything including blogging. I hope I am forgiven.
So I unintentionally began to use grapeseed oil on my hair a few months back and now that I realise how great it is, I am surprised it is not used as much as coconut or olive oil by ladies on a hair journey.
I hope that this post will encourage you to try it.
What Is Grapeseed Oil and Why It Is Good for Hair
Wine is made from grapes and the seeds of the grapes are usually unwanted by wine manufactures.
Grapeseed oil is obtained from these unwanted seeds. Because grapeseed oil is a by-product of the wine making industry it tends to be relatively cheap.
Grapeseed oil is rich in Vitamin e and ceramides. It is light weight and does not have a strong odour. Some of the great things that grapeseed oil does for hair includes
- The ceramides helps to smoothen the cuticle layer making hair look less frizzy.
- It blesses our hair which a shine!!!!
- It is a very good at keeping moisture sealed in but does not weigh hair down like many oils tend to. It not sticky or greasy
- It has antioxidant and contains fatty acids which some research has claimed promotes hair growth, strengthens hair strands and minimise thinning.
- It helps in the fight against split ends.
- A little off point but its great for your skin too.

My Experience with Grapeseed Oil
I used to use olive oil as my sealant and although I liked it I felt my hair was a little weighed down by it.
I switched to using coconut oil for a few years and although it had a lot of benefits I did not think it helped me seal in moisture for long enough. I decided olive oil was better and went back to it.
I actually purchased grapeseed oil for use on my skin but I tried it on my hair when I ran out of both olive and coconut oil. My, my, my……the difference I saw in my hair that week made me a convert.
My hair retained moisture a lot better but my hair was not weighed down at all. It honestly made my hair look more vibrant and it felt smoother too. Over time I noticed that my hair strands felt better.
I have been using grapeseed oil as a sealant for about 6 months now and my final verdict is that it has made my hair a better version of itself. I honestly wish I had tried it sooner
I should say that I have been more consistent with my regimen and have been drinking more water for a few months now and this probably also contributed to the improved state of my hair.
What do you use to seal the moisture into your hair? Have you tried a new sealant lately?
The next post will be a bun of the month post.
