Grapeseed Oil

I’ve been using grapeseed oil on my hair for the last 3 weeks and I’m both happy I finally tried this oil and mad at myself that I did not grab a bottle sooner. The strands of my hair are fine but dense – because they are fine, my hair is easily weighed down and stick together when my hair is dirty and oily causing it to appear thin and limp. Needless to say, products and heavy sticky oils are a no-go for me. I’ve been enjoying sealing my moisturizer and oiling my hair with grapeseed oil because it’s such a light oil, non-greasy oil.

How I’ve been using grapeseed oil:

  • As a hot oil treatment, warming the oil up in the microwave, applying to my scalp and length of hair, especially the ends, and leaving in for anywhere between 30 minutes to 2 hours.
  • To seal my moisturizer
  • Applying to my ends before I leave for work in the morning

Benefits of grapeseed oil:

  • Grapeseed oil for hair can also be used for hot oil hair treatments. Since the oil is light and quickly absorbed, heating grapeseed oil and applying it to the scalp and hair ends greatly helps to make hair shiny, reducing brittleness.
  • Dandruff problems as well as seborrheic dermatitis can be reduced by regular application of grapeseed oil on the scalp.
  • The best thing about applying grapeseed oil for hair is that it can be safely applied on all hair types, be it normal, dry or oily.
  • Using grapeseed oil for hair growth is also recommended since vitamin E and linoleic acid present in grapeseed oil helps to strengthen hair.
  • Dry, rough and frizzy hair can also benefit from the use of grapeseed oil as it smooths the hair cuticles, sealing in the moisture and making each hair strand strong.
  • Use as a heat protectant as it resists temperatures to 450° F.

I’m currently using Heritage Products brand of grapeseed oil. I purchased my 16 oz bottle from vitacost.com for $6.79. I think I want to try and mix a little grapeseed oil with my deep conditioner and see how my hair responds to that. We’ll see.

  1. Is it safe for color treated hair?

  2. I USE EVERY OIL THAT I HAVE AND MIX IT WITH EGG, HONEY, LEMON, COCONUT MILK, BANANAS. …AND NOW MY HAIR IS TO MY BUTT AND I AM 44 YEARS OLD! I HOPE THIS HELPS YOU LADIES! :))

    1. How long do you leave this in your hair. I will try this.

  3. I`ve ever heard about grapeseed oil, but i will try it for sure. Now I`m using the Pro Naturals argan oil and its really good to nourish and moisturize my hair. highly recommend it!

  4. I am going to run to Walmart to get some grape-seed oil, I have been looking for something that won't weigh my hair down. I am tired of using the curling iron on my hair, it leaves a smell. Any thoughts on this anyone? I am starting to roll my hair with this silicone solution on my hair that I bought from Walmart, but it only weighs my hair after using it for about twice a week. I have fine and thin hair, but it grows, LOL

  5. I just tried it for a week and I definitely like it better than EVCO, for some reason it never really sealed in my moisture and when I pre-poo'd with it my hair was soooo oily even after washing. I still keep a stash of EVCO because I like to add it to DC's and I'm hoping that it was operator error, it usually is lol. Any tips in using EVCO?

  6. Beautiful,I have just started using it I'm aiming to have as beautiful,healthy and long hair as yours..so here it starts .lol

  7. I have thick coarse hair that looks great when it is relaxed. I have been experimenting with other products and forgot how much I love the Shielo Restoration Oil.

    I use the Shielo Oil on my hair for conditioning every few days (depending on hair dullness). My hair looks amazingly shiny and more manageable. It also helps me prevent split ends. Recently I was in a wedding and we used it as a finisher for my upsweep. The hair stylist was amazed, she commented she had never seen hair with so much sheen.

  8. just bought my bottle from walmart yesterday. so excited about this oil! i hope i got a good guy. it's the pompeian brand you mentioned. i originally wanted hemp oil but upon further research i found grapeseed oil contains more ceremides &I also couldn't find hemp oil lol.

  9. just depends how often you massage the scalp after you apply grape seep oil.

  10. How long will your hair grow in a month if you massage grape seed oil in your hair once a week?

  11. Use grapeseed oil, water and veggie glycerin. You can purchase from amazon or vitacost. Put in a spray bottle, use everyday. Shea moisture line is good as well, available at Walgreens. My hair is natural. It's so soft, wavy and much healthier.

  12. Does Grapessed Oil help with partially bald spots? It's growing SSSSLLLLOOOOWWW and U can see the spot. Just looking for something that will help this bald spot to fill ut. Based on what I'm reading, learning… grapeseed oil on that spot with massage helps.

    Also, does this help with men's vald spots alsi?

    I've been natural since October 2012, been in cornrows and currently in a double strand twist praying for longer stronger hard.

  13. This is great! I brought some today but unsure if I brought the right one. do you know if 100% refined is okay?
