Id like to join! I use safflower or grapeseed oil for an overnight preepoo. I've been doing this for a little over a month and can totally tell a difference in the condition of my hair. My hair retains moisture better than ever, stays soft and always has a nice sheen. I'm looking forward to trying some hemp oil!

Hi Ms Tiki
Is there a reason you are considering not using the listed oils?

Is it really true that grapeseed oil has a higher percentage of ceramides than wheatgerm oil? i'm really surprised.
Why da heyl have i been torturing myself with that awful stink???

Weekly wash today, will use grapeseed oil (it's cheaper too i think) to pre-poo.

Don't worry be happy
Hey miss cosmic and Coffee those percentages that are floating around refer to a lipid called linoleic acid, which is not a ceramide. I am yet to come across any information regarding percentages of actual ceramides.

I'm trying to make it a habit to use both Hot 6 oil on my length and castor oil on my ends and edges with every style I do (makes sure I stick to both challenges I'm in: ceramides and castor oil)

Last night, I massaged my scalp and hairline with CO, sprayed my hair with a mixed leave in (water, KCKT, and aloe vera juice), made 4 braids, put Hot 6 oil on the length, and put CO on the ends. Rocking the braid out until further notice!

In a few days I plan to pre-poo with olive oil, clarify with a diluted shampoo (brand to be determined), DC with AO conditioner, and braid out or twist out. But you all know how the saying goes about good intentions :look:

Just wanted to add that African Royale Hot 6 oil may be an under dog. I used it as a teen, I have no reason as to why I stopped using it, I just stopped, and gave it no extra thought until recently. Here's some info:

-it's 100% natural, just oils and herbs (minus the fragrance and one "cone")
-has ceramide content (wheat germ oil)
-has high linoleic acid content (safflower and sesame oils)
-has other high quality hair oils (castor, sweet almond, and olive oils)
-smells great
-and best of all it's CHEAP (I've seen $1.99 for a bottle)

If any of you ladies hate the smell of the oil you're using, running out because the bottles are small, frustrated at the low availability, overwhelmed by the expense of some of the other oils, I highly suggest trying Hot 6 oil. And no I don't work for them or stand to profit in any way :lol:

Almost forgot to add, I love how it makes my hair feel. I only use about 2 quarter sized amounts (one for each side of my head). It absorbs well and seals in my moisture. I've been using it every 2-3 days.

If I know you ladies, someone will want to know the ingredients:

Olive Oil , Canola Oil , Wheat Germ Oil , Sweet Almond Oil , Safflower Oil , Castor Oil , Sesame Oil , Vitamins E , Vitamins A , Vitamins D , Cyclomethicone , Sheep Sorrell , Yarrow , Wheat Germ , Slippery Elm Bark , Sage , Henna , Comfrey , Burdock Root , Goldenseal , Cherry Bark , Black Walnut , Chamomile , Alfalfa , Hyssop , Fragrance.

Once again it has a "cone" in it and a synthetic fragrance so if you're anti-cone and/or anti synthetic fragrances do not try this product. If not, and you have an extra $2, I say go for it!

Please add me to this challenge! I'm looking to incorporate more ceramides in 2012. Right now the only oil I have with ceramides is Silk Dreams Nourish. I'll be incorporating these through pre-poos and daily sealing.

Where are you guys getting your hemp oil for cheap online? I found an 8oz for $9 (with shipping) on Amazon but I don't want to press 'pay' until I've exhausted all options. :lol:

Edit to add other products I use containing ceramides:
Shescentit Okra Reconstructor - Wheat germ & hemp oils
Shescentit Avocado Conditioner - Grape seed oil

I'm definitely in!
These are for sealing, rinses, HOTs, and adding to DCs.
I'll be using:

Hemp seed
Rice bran
Wheat germ
SD Nourish
HTN Growth Oil


Products that contain ceramides:

Claudie's Tiffani Ceramide pomade
SD Aaliyah's blessing
Saravun Castor hair cream
Redken Anti Snap
Redken CAT
Shi Naturals creamy leave in

That's all I can think of right now. I'll be using them at every wash in one way or another. I'll be sealing with them just about every day. My hair did really well last year with ceramides!! :yep:

Hey Mische that seems pretty good, vitacost.com has good prices, but not as cheap they have Nutiva hemp oil 8oz for 6.27 with 4.99 standard shipping.
