I have really thick, coarse hair, so when I was growing up my mom would massage oils into my hair to stop it from getting dry and lackluster. We used natural oils like almond oil, coconut oil and even olive oil! I’d keep it on for a couple hours and then wash it out. My hair felt so soft and nourished afterwards. To this day, I still apply oils to my hair every couple weeks.” –Ramsha, Digital Merchandiser
