Ever wondered what your hair goes through in a day? It faces heat, pollution and sweat. We put our hair through the ringer with hair styling tools and dyes that strip our strands of much needed nutrients. Then we wonder why our hair looks dry, limp and lifeless.
Our mission at Obsessed Hair Oil is to help you say goodbye to dry hair and scalp, hair loss, hair breakage, hair damage and hair thinning naturally. The information on this site will get you on the road to gorgeous, thick, long, soft, shiny hair.
Unfortunately, not everyone cares about your hair health. A recent study revealed that many hair care products targeting black women contain ingredients that are hazardous to our health. Parabens, fragrances, nonylphenols, cyclosiloxanes, and diethyl phthalate are commonly found in root stimulators, hair lotions and hair relaxers.
Black women are over-exposed and under-protected from toxic chemicals. That’s why at Obsessed Hair Oil we disclose our all-natural plant-based ingredients because you deserve safe products.
Our Ingredients In Obsessed Hair Oil
Jojoba Oil: Moisturizes and hydrates your hair and its follicles without leaving residue

Weekly Wash Day Routine
Save yourself time and frustration. Check out our favorite hair products that work:
Obsessed Hair Oil Pre-Shampoo: Before you wash your hair. Bathe your hair in Obsessed botanical oils. First, dampen your hair with water. Next, apply the hair oil on your hair until it is thoroughly covered. Cover with a shower cap and warm towel or heat cap (recommendation is below) for a half-hour to an hour then rinse and shampoo. This will lock in moisture to keep your hair healthy, soft, strong and shiny.
Shea Moisture Sacha Inchi Clarifying Shampoo: Product buildup is a real issue. If the pores on your scalp are clogged, the follicle underneath the skin is being stifled. If you need extra scalp cleansing, use this product as needed or once a month.
ArtNaturals Organic Moroccan Argan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner: This duo is infused with essential oils and extracts mixed into the formula to help naturally clean and hydrate your hair. They not only work to help improve your hair’s health, but also leaves your hair smelling wonderful.
Briogeo Deep Conditioning Mask: When you need extensive repair and deep hydration, use a hair mask instead of regular conditioner. It’s a creamy treatment that will restore essential hydration and enhance your hair’s resilience and strength.
Delivers an optimal blend of transformative nutrients that range from B vitamins to rosehip oil, argan oil, collagen and silk to transform damaged hair into shiny, healthy hair. The mask imparts moisture to your hair and penetrates deep down.
It will help replenish moisture levels in your hair and keep it healthy. For best results, massage a generous amount through your hair. Sit under a bonnet, hair cap or hair dryer for about 20 minutes then rinse it out for silky, soft hair.
Shea Moisture Strengthen & Restore Leave-In Conditioner: This is a must if your hair is natural or transitioning. A luxurious leave-in treatment with vitamins and proteins that gives hair a real shine. While your hair has slip, gently detangle your hair to remove any knots or tangles.
Detangle using fingers, wide tooth comb or a Denman brush (see recommendations below). Detangle from the ends working your way up to the roots.
Obsessed Hair Oil For Hair Ends and Glossy Shine: Rub the oil between your palms, then smooth it through the ends of your hair for instant sleekness and a way to instantly curb and condition brittle, flyaway hair. Or you can squirt a few drops in the palm of your hand and smooth it through your hair for fabulous shine.
Hair Must Haves
DuraComfort Microfiber Towel: A secret to healthy hair is to always use a microfiber towel on your hair to keep from damaging your hair strands. This is my favorite brand because it’s super absorbent and dries your hair fast, gently and without friction. Wrap wet hair gently in a towel and let the cotton absorb the moisture for a few minutes instead of rubbing. This helps protect against split ends.
Satin Wrapping Scarf: Protect your hair from harsh pillow fibers while maintaining the natural oils in your hair.
HIS Ceramic Tourmaline Flat Iron: The temperature range settings go between 240 degrees to 410 degrees. The tourmaline ionic plates provide you with silky, shiny hair.
Wide Tooth Detangler Comb: The wide spaces between the teeth keep your hair from breaking and preventing split ends.
Denman Brush: Talk about cutting down on detangling time. It works wonders for Type 3c and Type 4 hair when wet.
Heat Cap: Using a heat cap when doing a deep conditioning mask is a no-brainer. The heat will help open up the cuticle to allow a deeper penetration into your hair strands. As mentioned, Obsessed Hair Oil treatments works great with the heat cap as it seriously increases moisture, prevents breakage, reduces split ends and nourishes your hair. Simply place in microwave for a minute and you’ll have a warm cap for about 30 minutes.
Humidifier: Use a humidifier at night in your bedroom, especially in cold weather. Your home heating probably keeps the air very dry, which can dry out your hair.
Daily Hair Tips
Healthy Eating/Nutrition for Hair: Charmaine Jones, MS, RDN, LDN is the owner of Food Jonezi. Her areas of expertise include nutrition counseling, child nutrition, nutrition education, food labeling and more. Also, check out these foods for hair growth.
HairAnew Hair Vitamin: You can’t achieve beautiful hair or faster hair growth without nourishing your hair from within. If you eat healthy, you’ll be fine. However, if you know you are not getting all of the vitamins and minerals that your body needs, take a hair vitamin that includes Biotin for faster hair growth.
Water leads to hair growth. Much like a plant needs water to grow so does your hair. Water is a key ingredient that supports vitamins, which contribute to your hair growth. Learn more.
Daily or every other day, hydrate your hair with water then lock the moisture in with Obsessed Hair Oil. This extra layer of protection slows down the inevitable evaporation of moisture from your hair.
Use Obsessed Hair Oil on hair ends before wrapping hair at night: Apply a thin layer of hair oil to the shafts of your hair. Focus on your hair tips. No need to over apply. Remember, a little goes a long way.
Scalp Massage: Two to three times a week for four minutes for blood circulation; consider a good old-fashioned, scalp massage using the very best essential oils. Yes, I’m talking about hair oil that mimics the natural oil sebum that is produced in your scalp. You know, the type of natural pure essential oils that nourishes and moisturize your hair and follicles while maximizing the rate at which your hair grows.
Breo Portable Mini Scalp Massager: If you don’t mind splurging on yourself, this handheld, electric, rechargeable mini scalp and head massager is perfection. It feels like you are at a luxurious spa getting a massage. I use mine all of the time because it feels so good and it helps to keep my blood circulation on my scalp in peak condition. It doesn’t tangle or pull your hair either!
Natural Hairstyles and Protective Hairstyles
The only living part of the hair is the root that is under the skin. Therefore, when you are ‘growing’ your hair you are preserving the length of the follicle, which is why protective hairstyles matter, while internally taking care of the root. Low manipulation styling will help your hair to grow.
Remember, stretched hairstyles like braids, twist outs and roller sets help to decrease knots and breakage. Protective hairstyles like braids, twists, buns, extensions and wigs can help retain length and reduce breakage.
Also, avoid tight hairstyles, which can cause hair breakage as well as balding. Finally, avoid direct heat, instead opt for air drying or using a bonnet dryer.
