Peanut Oil Mask for Most Amazing, Super Long & Strong Hair
Peanut oil is derived from peanuts and is available in various varieties such as refined, unrefined, cold pressed, and roasted. The varieties are not created equal and serve different purposes outlined below:
- Refined Peanut Oil: This oil has been refined, bleached and deodorized. This process eliminates the component of the oil that causes allergic reactions.
- Roasted Peanut Oil: This is specialty oil similar to sesame oil. The peanuts are roasted before processing to enhance the flavour and aroma of the oil.
- Unrefined Peanut Oil/Cold Pressed: This type of peanut oil has been processed mildly to retain as much of its natural qualities as possible. The aroma in this type is softer than roasted peanut oil.
HOW TO USE PEANUT OIL:
This is not hard to do at all! You can use peanut oil as a hot oil treatment, which is excellent for dry, dull, brittle, damaged hair, or you can add it to your deep conditioning treatments as well. This oil is on the thick side, so if your
DIY: Deep Conditioner seem to be too runny this oil, as well as a little bit more conditioner or your conditioning base, will help thicken it up.
Here is the one story, we shared from you:
You’ve probably heard of using peanut butter to get gum out of hair, but have you ever heard of using it get longer hair?
That’s exactly what an American missionary living in Micronesia claims has helped her grow and maintain 64-inch-long strawberry blonde hair that touches her ankles when dry and reaches the floor when wet. She enjoys a spoonful of it every day – and this is apparently, the result:
“I have done this faithfully for years, and can honestly say that peanut butter makes my hair healthy and strong, and also makes it grow fast,” 33-year-old Andrea Colson writes on her blog. “Peanut butter is a miracle hair-grower!”
As for what she does coat her hair in, Colson says she has become a big fan of coconut oil in just the last couple of years.
“A few hours before washing my hair, I take it down from my hairstyle for that day and apply coconut oil to the length,” she writes. “When I get in the shower I rinse the oil out of my hair in cool water, then condition-wash-condition as usual.”
She’s referring to her method of cleansing her super-long hair, meaning she uses conditioner before shampoo, and then again after – and she’s very loyal to Herbal Essences Long Term Relationship Shampoo and Conditioner.
“I use a fistful of conditioner and a small not-quite-palm-size amount of shampoo,” she writes. “I rinse all that out with cool water, then condition the bottom again. I leave that conditioner on for several minutes before rinsing my hair one last time in cool water.”
That doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy peanut butter every day (as long as you’re not allergic to it). Just don’t expect miracles from it!
