Grape Seed Oil Review

Hey Everyone!

I just wanted to give you some feedback in regards to a post from July 18, 2012 on the benefits of using Grape Seed Oil (GSO)

I have been testing out this oil for about a month now.  Prior to using GSO, I was a huge fan of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO), and still am.  However, I have had some pretty great success with GSO and will continue using it as a part of my regular hair regimen.

The GSO I purchased was NOT organic.  It was $4.99 for a 750mL bottle and was found in the cooking oil aisle of the grocery store.

In the original blog post, I stated as per my research that GSO is odorless.  I do want to confirm that this is 100% true.  I am very sensitive to odors, and I can honestly vouch for the fact that GSO does not have an odor.  I think this was a big selling point for me, because even though I love EVOO, I am not crazy about it’s smell in my hair, and usually mix it with essential oils like lavender, or tea tree oil to disperse the smell.

I used the GSO by itself as a hot oil treatment which entailed greasing my scalp and locs, and then covering my head with a plastic bag for about an hour.  It went on greasy, but was very quickly absorbed by my scalp and my locs.

After my last wash, I mixed 2 parts GSO with 1 part EVOO, 15 drops of Tea Tree Oil and 5 drops of Peppermint Oil in a 60mL plastic bottle.  I used this mixture to oil my scalp, and locs, and re-twist my roots.

So far, I have noticed that I have not had any dry or itchy scalp.  These two issues  have been an ongoing battle for me.  As I continue to use GSO as a part of my regular hair regimen, I will keep you posted and let you know if the success continues!

Please let me know if GSO works for you!
