    Default Different Camellia oil types?

    Funnily enough despite being very into oils I never tried Camellia oil before. As I'm giving this hair growing thing another go I thought I'd invest in some. I ordered what I thought was Camellia Japonica but when I looked again I realised I had ordered Camellia Oleifera. Is there a huge difference between the two? Is this version still useful? I tried it on my hands and did really like the effect, it left a very nice kind of film making my hands feel extra soft and smooth but not coated and oily.

    I have both at home, to be honest, I have 4 different Camelia oils, I tried all of them and compared them.

    C.oleifera is in my opinion a tiny bit heavier than C. Japonica, but when it comes to their moisturizing properties, there is not a huge noticable difference. I have hair similar to yours, so it should be similar on your hair.

    C.oleifera added more shine to my hair so, but was more difficult to not overdose.

    So in a nutshell, they are both great and I will rebuy both of them.

    I have been researching camellia oil today, and I read that C.oleifera is food grade camellia oil. It's the kind that I have in an oil mix and I like it. I am going to order the C. Japonica this week so I'll be able to do more of a comparison.
