Of course, to the pantry I went! I was out of olive oil — my go-to oil for anything dry in general– so I reached for the grapeseed oil. From previous research, I knew about some of the benefits of grapeseed oil on your skin, but I wasn’t 100% convinced that this was going to help condition my desperate “hair”-of-affairs!
The grapeseed oil is essentially odorless and lightweight and left my hair feeling thicker. Each strand felt as if it was coated with another layer of hair so it felt like my hair was heavier and healthier and was easily absorbed by my scalp. Grapeseed oil helps to restructure and regenerate damaged and stressed hair.
Grapeseed oil has regenerative properties which makes this great for using on your body –especially your hair:
It helps normalize the pH levels of your scalp, which is important because if your pH levels are off your hair will break and fall out more easily. It leaves your hair cuticle smooth, sealing in moisture and giving your hair a smoother and shinier finish.
Also, if you have any dandruff problems, grapeseed oil is the treatment for you.

Take some grapessed oil and warm it up until it is a few degrees warmer than room temperature. Massage the oil into your scalp using your fingertips in circular motions. This massages the oil into your scalp which in turn also helps the circulation on your head.
Once you are done massaging the oil into your scalp, make sure the rest of your strands are covered and then take a warm towel and wrap it around your head. You can leave this for 30 minutes or overnight.
Keep the towel on your head for about 30 minutes and then take off the towel before going to bed. Wash your hair using a mild shampoo. You may have to wash it out a couple of times, but it is well worth the effort!
