My only experience in using oils on my thin, straight hair is with argan and pequi, and store bought hot oil treatment. Does anyone have recommendations for this type of hair? My boyfriend on the other hand has very long, curly hair...

I want to try Ojon, and it looks like Murumuru is great for curly hair. Any advice on how to use or apply these? Should it be mixed with anything, applied to just the ends, on dry or wet/damp hair?

Hi, 
Ojon is very heavy, more a treatment oil than an everyday kind of thing. Why do you use oil on your hair? Is it chemically treated or too dry? You need to be careful with it.
For thin straight hair, I would just make sure that the ends are healthy and maybe get a light oil or murumuru for a finishing product for flyaways, that would also work for curls.

If your boyfriend's hair is thicker then it could take pracaxi mixed with the murumuru for a leave-in.

How did the pequi and argan work out for you?

Thank you, this is very helpful! I liked Pequi oil on my ends and lightly all over as a finishing product, and the argan I used as treatment for pre-poo. Just reading about the various oils made me wonder if treating my hair more regularly would complement a no-poo or reduce my use of conditioners. I tried going the baking soda/apple cider vinegar route to break up my routine and my scalp didn't cooperate - hair got too oily looking after a few washes. I don't know if my follicles started overproducing oils because I wasn't getting enough, but generally if I use regular shampoo and conditioner then I need to wash almost every day to keep it from going super limp and greasy looking. Guess I'm just curious if using some oil methods will improve the texture and appearance of my hair.

I'll have to try murumuru and get the pracaxi for my bf also.

I bought the buriti here last year for my skin, and I love it, planning to order others soon. Thank you again, your products are amazing!
