How to Make Sure You Have the Best Oils for Natural Hair

The quality of ingredients in hair products is more important now than ever before. Buyers are more conscious of what is placed in their hair and the benefits that will enhance the health of their strands over time. Brands proudly boast of their products being free of sulfates, parabens, and mineral oil to appeal to the newly savvy buyer.

High quality vs. low quality oil

Curls CEO Mahisha Dellinger states there is absolutely a difference in quality when it comes to hair oils and always suggest sourcing organic oils whenever possible. Here are a few warning signs she suggests looking for when shopping for oils for your hair:
