7 best afro hair oils

Many of us can clearly recall memories during childhood of heavy oil-based lotions and potions being applied to our scalps.

However, whereas oils of the past were often heavy in consistency, and made from cheap ingredients that would do nothing for the health of your hair – today’s choices are much more promising. 

Ranging from pure natural oils that can be used on other parts of your body, oils made from sustainably sourced super fruits that contain magical qualities, and oils that can be used with other products to create a super intensive deep treatment – there is a wide range of choice out there.

With options for every budget, we’ve rounded up the best of the bunch, from oils that promote growth and ward off grey hairs, to oils that relieve itchy and dry scalps.

Afrocenchix Seal 100% Natural Hair Oil: £10, afrocenchix.com

The scent of lemon and grapefruit eagerly awaits you as you pump from the dispenser bottle of this wonder oil.

What our tester particularly loved about this product is that you can really feel it doing the job immediately. Whereas some oils tend to dissipate minutes after you apply it, Seal 100% Natural Hair Oil penetrates the hair shaft and leaves your strands feeling hydrated and super soft, and it remains that way for hours afterwards.

Better still, you can rest assured knowing that it doesn’t have any unwanted chemicals, it’s 100 per cent natural (with mouth watering ingredients like coconut oil, lemon essential oil, grapefruit oil and orange essential oil), contains no mineral oil and parabens and is free from artificial fragrance.

This works well when applied after adding a leave-in conditioner to act as a sealer.

Charlotte Mensah Manketti Hair Oil: £48, charlottemensah.com

Charlotte Mensah’s Manketti Oil is a deeply concentrated product with a unique musky smell that exudes quality and luxury. It comes in a 100ml glass bottle with a pipette applicator – and it’s definitely needed, as you only need a tiny amount. 

This oil comes from a mongongo tree, commonly found in parts of west and southern Africa, and is prized for its nutritional value and high emollient component that nourishes the skin and hair. 

It’s excellent for hair treatments. Our tester applied after cleansing and conditioning their hair and left on for around 20 minutes and the results were incredible – soft, and fluffy natural curls.

KeraCare Essential Oils: £7.60, lookfantastic.com

This is a great multi purpose oil, made from all natural ingredients (including sweet almond oil, coconut oil, castor oil, avocado oil, olive oil, and kernel oil), and another gorgeously scented buy.

If you’re a fan of oils with more of a lighter consistency, this is really suited to you. It’s light enough to use on a daily basis, as it absorbs easily and doesn’t leave a greasy build-up.

It’s also suitable for use as a post thermal styling sealant.
