What's the Diff?!

There are so many different kinds of oils and serums to put in your hair. So hmmm... is there really a difference and what kind is best for you? Let's start at the top and work right.

Pin It

This stuff is FANTASTIC. I would highly recommend MoroccanOil to people who have naturally dark, thick, coarse hair. That's right dark hair. MoroccanOil is a pretty heavy serum, a little bit goes along way. I would not recommend it to people who have fine or blond hair. The oil has a yellow tint to it and I have seen it yellow peoples hair over time. It is made for people who want to keep a nice golden shine on their dark/ black hair. For Blondie's who are die heart fans there is a Light version.

Suave Moroccan Oil

This oil will make your hair noticeable silky & shiny  in an instant and has a yummy fragrance. If that's all you’re looking for then this stuff may be for you. No need to read more. But, personally my mama always taught me you get what you pay for. So yes, it adds shine to your hair but it won't soak into your hair or offer healing qualities. There are other products that offer a lot more with better quality and is healthier for your hair

Neem Serum

My personal favorite, neem serum. It is all over great stuff. It is a thermal protector, offers UVA UVB and UVC protection, helps add shine to hair it also has  anti aging  properties  that restore your hairs youth natural radiance. Neem is great for people with coarse to fine hair. This serum uses nano technology so it will actually soak into the hair shaft not just sit on top of the hair. Just a WARNING a little little bit goes a long way. Where this oil soaks into your hair and doesn't coat it or just sit on the outside you can use neem on a daily basis.

CHI Silk Infusion

CHI Silk Infusion is fantastic for people who use CHI styling tools. They are made to work hand in hand. This is a lightweight oil that works great for fine hair. It uses wheat protein to help strengthen distressed hair. Words of caution  those who are about using all natural products, this is not for you it has lots of silicone oils in it. But where it is so light weight it can help keep volume in your hair while taming frizz.

Cooking Oils

Ok, Ok I know this may have been a little "no duh".  But for anyone who didn't know already cooking oil isn't meant for your hair. If you want to add coconut olive oil to a DYI hair mask that's fine, just make sure it is a high quality product.  I do not  use them on a daily basis because it is way to heavy for my hair type.


  1. Hey! I just found your blog and it is great! hair tips, yay!!! Just one tinyyyy thing.. the font. I really don't want to be rude, but you gotta pick a different body font, meaning, while I love the personal flavor you have in the one you chose, reserve it just for the titles. Try georgia, helvetica, something clean and simple because it kills my eyes to read the paragraphs of this title font. Thanks!! <3 a graphic designer :)

    1. Chelsea, thanks for checking out my blog. I am really grateful for your opinion of the font. I am definitely a hair designer not a graphic designer. This blog thing is alot of guessing and trial and error for me. If you have any other suggestions please shoot me an email at Thanks again!

  2. I am loving this blog...I have a hair question...I have waist length hair...a ton of it...but it is very fine textured. I have a oily scalp so I end up washing it daily. My hair is healthy and I don't dye it. My issues are the daily washing (dry shampoos don't seem to help) and it wont hold a curl to save its life. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    1. Christy, thanks for visiting!! Here are a few things to try--

      - I know this might sound crazy but this has worked for my sister and me. Try not washing your hair everyday. Start out washing your hair every other day. The first week might be a challenge, but just throw your hair up in a top knot and no one will even notice your hair is oily. Not washing your hair everyday will teach your body to not produce so much oil.

      -The other thing is try switching out your shampoo and conditioner. Your hair might just be immune to the product.

      I hope this makes sense if you have any other questions feel free to email me at
