Jojoba Oil is great for many things: hair, stretch marks, acne and as a carrier oil. While I haven’t used this as a carrier oil, I have read other peoples experiences in that department. I can attest to it’s help with the three other things it helps with though.
My hair has been dry and brittle for a while, breaking off a lot whenever it’s messed with. When I started to use the jojoba oil in my hair, I noticed that it wasn’t as brittle and it started to look healthier. I used it in my hair by simply putting some in my hand and raking it through my hair making sure to get the roots. It did leave a wet look to my hair and sometimes a “greasy” look depending on how much I used.
For stretch marks, it helped me a lot. When I was pregnant with my daughter, I gained a lot of stretch marks across my stomach that were very vividly pink and some red. By using this and some lotion on my stomach, the stretch marks have lessened in appearance. They are all my skin tone now and can’t really be seen but they can still be felt when I’m scratching or rubbing my stomach.
As far as acne, I’ve always had a little here and there since I was a teenager. I would put some of this oil on a cotton ball and apply it all over my face. It not only helped to hydrate my skin and make it look healthier in that aspect, but it also helped clear up the acne I had. I have also noticed a lessening in the redness in my face that I have always had for as long as I can remember.
This stuff was always COLD! It didn’t matter how hot it was in my house, whenever I grabbed the bottle, it was always cold and the oil was colder. A 4 oz bottle goes a long way. One wouldn’t think with it being such a small amount that it wouldn’t last long. It lasted me two months while using it on my face and stretchmarks daily and my hair once a week.
If you’re looking for something that helps with acne, stretch marks, brittle/breaking hair and redness, I would definitely recommend this oil! A 4 oz bottle is $10.95 on Amazon. I received my bottle free in exchange for my opinion. I am definitely going to be purchasing another bottle once I have the amount in GC’s to purchase it with! This would make a great gift for teenagers who suffer from a lot of acne or for expecting mothers to use on stretchmarks or even mothers who have already had their child and have the marks.
