Jojoba oil is derived from the seed of the jojoba plant. It is a waxy liquid commonly used in skin care products for its ability to mimic sebum, our bodies’ natural moisturizer. Filled with rich natural elements, jojoba is easily absorbed by the skin nourishing it with microelements and nutrients such as:

• Zinc
• Iodine
• Chromium
• Silicon
• Vitamin E
• Vitamin B
• Copper

Due to its antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties, jojoba oil is useful in treating many skin conditions including insect bites, eczema, rosacea, warts and cold sores. The oil is also very effective for treating minor scraps and cuts by fighting infection causing bacteria and fungal microbes while maintaining your skins youthful glow and elasticity.

The same nourishing properties that make jojoba oil beneficial to the skin also make it equally beneficial for the hair and scalp. Unlike other oils, Jojoba oil does not actually penetrate the hair cell membranes. Instead it seals the hair shaft allowing it to retain its natural oils and nutrients keeping the hair strong and pliable.

Crusty build-up of serum at the base of the hair follicles is a common cause of brittle, damaged hair and inhibits new growth as it blocks the flow of new serum into the hair shaft. Jojoba oil is extremely effective at disintegrating this buildup and freeing the hair follicle to grow and receive nutrients.

Jojoba is also considered to be one of the best treatments for many scalp conditions like dandruff and keeps your hair shiny, soft, thick and strong. Adding a few drops to your regular shampoo daily will generate amazing improvements to the look and feel of your hair and the pore cleansing effects help to promote growth and regeneration.

Like many other oils, jojoba is non-caloric and edible; however it is non-digestible and passes directly through the digestive system which can lead to steatorrhea (excess fat in feces0) causing several fecal incontinence. Topical use only is recommended.

One of the drawbacks to jojoba is that it can be expensive with organic jojoba sporting the highest price tag. Also excessive use can cause hair and skin to be too shiny, so conservative use during the daytime is best. With all the wonderful benefits that jojoba oil has to offer for your skin and hair, it is a must have for your skin and hair care arsenal and can be found most anywhere that skin and hair products are sold.

You can also buy jojoba oil online on Amazon and I personally recommend Now Foods Jojoba Oil. Alternatively, another way tojojoba oil shampoo experience the magical benefits of jojoba oil for your hair is with a jojoba enriched shampoo. If this is the route you’d like to take then I recommend Nature’s Gate Jojoba Revitalizing Shampoo. It’s only $1.89 at time of writing down from over $7!
