    I know it's OT, BUT: Does anybody else find this title weird? Or is it because I'm not a native? Ö.ö

    Hahaha. I completely got the wrong impression about this thread title! I'm sorry I don't have the answer for you, but I just wanted you to know you made me chuckle. I believe coconut oil has been proven to get inside the hair shaft.

    My hair does well with coconut oil. EVOO was as good, but I didn't like the scent.

    Coconut oil, palm kernel oil and babassu oil can all penetrate hair to the cortex level and are the easiest to find.

    Other oils that can too are murumuru, cohune and tucuma kernel oils.

    Babassu oil is a kernel oil.

    More proven Oils that penetrate the hair shaft
    "[...]I remember a question I asked about hair oils, and whether there were other oils that penetrated the hair shaft other than coconut oil, and they promptly answered that coconut oil was one of the few that did more than just sit on top of the hair cuticle.

    It turns out, there were more even THEY didn't realize! Today, they posted some information regarding some research done on the penetrating properties of certain plant oils on the hair shaft, Olive oil, Avocado oil, Meadowfoam seed oil, Sunflower oil, and Jojoba oil were tested.

    It turns out that olive oil and avocado oil also had very penetrative properties, as well as meadowfoam seed oil (to a certain extent). They also said it would be even MORE effective if they were mixed together![...]."

    Hope that helps.

    Olive oil and the others can penetrate hair to a degree but not that much. Mixing the oils with coconut oil may not get you the results you are after.

    I was also amused by the title.

    And I'd suggest coconut oil.
