Oil actually nourishes the hair and stops hair fall. Most of the ancesters applied for different reasons. But recently almost nong of the present day generation feels it necessary to apply. We have definitely become more fashionable, but applying oil atleast once a week is not a big deal, i suppose. Do you apply oil once in a while. We find even kids fighting with their moms over the issue of fashion. What is your view on this. Atleast do you feel like applying oil to your hair.

Well, I still use oil on my hair. Here in Thailand it's a very common practice for women. It's a special oil for the hair. Sometimes you see in on the sidewalk vends those encapsulated oils for various purposes i.e. hair grower, moisturizer, etc.etc.

actually my ancestors as well as your own used to use scented cones of wax in their coiffer's (hairstyles) and allow it to melt into their hair and over their shoulders in the heat of the African summers. Now we use hair pomades or bergamot oil most commonly.Though mulattos and hispanics should try using the more thin light oils of coconut or vegetable based natural formula oils for their own hair. Anyone with hair should try to at the least protect and treat it for styling stress at least once a week for optimum hair resiliance and shine.
