Grapeseed oil is great for moisturizing natural hair and to use as a heat protector, as it can withstand heat up to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. It's full of antioxidants that are good for both your skin and hair, and has a shelf life of approximately one year.

Grapeseed oil is the perfect oil to use as a hot oil treatment because of its thermal and moisturizing properties, and also as a deep conditioner for use with sitting under a hair dryer.

Grapeseed oil can be purchased at a local grocery store in the same aisle as other vegetable oils, and will cost you less than $9 a bottle. It's a light oil that won't weigh your hair down and it's great for treating dry hair, scalp, and dandruff issues.

You can add Grapeseed oil to your conditioner, deep conditioner, moisturizing oils/butters, use as a hot oil treatment, and of course when blow drying, heat styling or straightening the hair.

Grapeseed oil will seal moisture into the hair and will also work well for your skin because of its powerful antioxidants that are good at protecting your skin and hair from free radicals. It is also good for those with sensitive skin because of its non-allergenic properties.
