    Default jabakusum taila anyone?

    I used to used this oil very regularly but stopped when I started exploring other oils. Well, a couple of nights ago, I went back to it and now I'm regretting ever trading it!

    Anyone else try it? The name means Hibiscus Oil, but I can't find an ingredient list. It's pretty light, is red, and has a strong flowery smell.

    I've bought it in indian grocery stores.

    I used this when I was small ( my mom bought and put it on my hair,to be honest), but don't seem to find it nowadays even in India. It was a staple oil for Bengalis at one time. And also one called Cantheridine.

    There is nothing wrong with it containing mineral oil (it is part of the blend) and you and banglaminerva liked it. That is what counts.

    ETA: banglaminerva you obviously had no problems with it if you used it regularly and are now back to it. Great!

    Agree with the bolded.

    My hair seems to like Parachute Coconut Oil(which is my favorite coconut oil) and the Dabur Amla Oil which contains mineral oil. When I need something to make my hair feel soft and silky I reach for the Dabur Amla.

    I don't think what have been advertised on multiple hair boards as being evil(cones, sulfates, mineral oil, etc.) are evil. What matters most is how you take care of your hair and what your hair likes.

    Beautifully said! You did scare me for a second or two with the size of that type, lol. It is not hair boards that are the problem with these myths. They are promoted by marketers of "natural products" to sell more of their products. They are the truly evil ones.

    I have lost count of reports on these boards of people having problems with cone-free, sulfate-free, silicone-free, mineral oil -free, paraben-free products.

    Drying oils that leave a tough film on the hair when exposed to oxygen can be more problematic to remove than silicone or mineral oil.

    Oops, sorry to scare you with the size.
    I just wanted to point out what you said. I'm kind of tired of seeing people join various hairboards(not just this one), their hair is BSL-WL and healthy but they change all of their products over hoping for a miracle and they end up with dry hair, buildup, and/or breakage.

    I didn't know it was the marketers who started it because I never heard or saw anything about those ingredients being problematic until I started frequenting hair boards on the internet.

    Agree with the drying oils being more problematic to remove. I never had to clarify my hair mutliple times in a row and continue to shampoo and condition to get rid of buildup for days on end until I used walnut oil and hemp oil products. : Natural, cone, mineral oil, and paraben free, but a total nightmare for me.
