I am yet to come across any information regarding percentages of actual ceramides.


About percentages.. I found this online::


I was googling ceramides online and I ran across a link to a thread on The Long Hair Community Forum. It shows which oils are high in ceramides, and how much of a percentage of ceramide content they have.

Safflower oil 78%
Grape seed oil 73%
Poppyseed oil 70%
Sunflower oil 68%
Hemp oil 60%
Corn oil 59%
Wheat germ oil 55%
Cottonseed oil 54%
Soybean oil 51%
Walnut oil 51%
Sesame oil 45%
Rice bran oil 39%
Pistachio oil 32.7%
Peanut oil 32% [17]
Canola oil 21%
Egg yolk 16%
Linseed oil 15%
Lard 10%
Olive oil 10%
Palm oil 10%
Cocoa butter 3%
Macadamia oil 2%
Butter 2%
Coconut oil 2%

Some of the things listed aren't oils, but it's still good to know that egg yolk contains ceramides, especially for those of us using the egg treatment.

I'm not going to join this challenge because I know I wouldn't "check in" regularly but I began using ceramides regularly last year and it literally changed the life of my hair. Its so much smoother and accepts protein EXTREMELY well. Lastly, its helped preserve my ends better, which is the reason I started using hemp oil in the first place! The information in the various ceramide challenge threads over the years was invaluable to me getting started on my quest to understanding the science behind ceramides.

Since it has been such a help for me, I wanted to add to the list a couple of newer products that contain ceramides that are staples in my regimen now:

Kerapro shampoo for dry to very dry hair
Kerapro Intense Treatment for dry to very dry hair (deep conditioner)
Kerapro Anti-Frizz Elixir
Rapunzel Hair Silk oil

I love all of the above and even posted about Kerapro here on the forum. Good luck ladies!!! I'll be stalking the thread every now and again!

DCed last night with AOGPB. I did something I shouldn't have done afterwards. I mixed some WGO & GSO into some cheapie Suave coconut conditioner & used it as a leave it. It seemed to zap the moisture right from my hair. I did my normal moisture routine w/my AV/WGO/CO mix this morning & had on a silk scarf under a wig. My hair still was feeling dry.

So I'm under my heat cap now DCing w/some AOHR. Hopefully this will turn things around.

Would it lessen the effect to add one of the listed oils to say, Hairveda's Cocasta Shikakai Hair Oil or would it best to use it by itself in a pure form?

chelseatiara thanks for the speedy response. So you still prefer Hot Six? Also do you use to seal? Do you put on scalp? Actually how do you use it?

Geminigirl I do for the smell and my hair prefers it. I use it for hot oil treatments and oil rinses and the olive oil miracle is my back up for those things. I seal now with castor oil and put that on my scalp.

I'm in! I went to Whole Foods and picked up some more grapeseed oil (works well but I think it might be too light) and sunflower oil.

What ceramide oils/products will you be using?
Grapeseed! And sunflower now that I have it. Will also use WGO and hemp when I'm not going anywhere.

How will you be using them? (pre-poo, shampoo, DC, leave-in, sealing etc)
To seal and pre-poo. Also in my scalp massage mix.

How often will you be using them?
Every day when I seal. Maybe every other day in my scalp massage mix (before cowashing). Once a week when I pre-poo.

What ceramide oils/products will you be using?
I am using an avacado mixture, sesame oil seems to work the best but I cannot do the smell. :) So I will be switching between the two.
How will you be using them? (pre-poo, shampoo, DC, leave-in, sealing etc)
I have been using my oil for sealing
How often will you be using them?
Everyday on my ends and scalp.

So last night I wanted to clarify, but didn't have my ORS. So I used my Hemp moisturizing shampoo, and used my oil mixture. I have not rinsed the oil yet, just been chilling with a plastic bag on my head. I will rinse then use WEN.

Here I grow again!
I'm 100 yrs late to the party but, count me in, please!

What ceramide oils/products will you be using? Wheat germ oil, Crece Pelo Leave-In, Silicon Mix Conditioner, Silicon Mix Bambu Leave-in

How will you be using them? (pre-poo, shampoo, DC, leave-in, sealing etc). I add wheatgerm oil to my DC and to seal. The rest is self explanatory.
How often will you be using them? Daily

This reminds me. I'm out of wheat germ oil. Gotta re-up.

OK ladies, I need some help. I realized I'm having breakage due to too much protein. So, I need to figure out which oils I can use while I up my moisture. I know I need to take out Avocado, Wheat Germ & Hemp Oil (that one is going to hurt). What oils should I use in the meantime that won't overload me more with protein? TIA
