About Mineral Oil
There are numerous amount of rumors about mineral oils and silicon and is often used as a marketing techniques from “Organic” hair care and skin care companies.
Mineral oil is Sometimes referred to as paraffin oil or Nujol, white mineral oil is composed of a blend of hydrocarbons; it has been used in cosmetics for over 100 years.
Mineral oil is one of the most common ingredients available in skin, hair products and moisturizers, although the amount of it used in hair products is almost insignificant;
Mineral Oil is Perhaps the single most common used ingredient, because it has the ability to help the body to absorb ultraviolet rays without drying out the skin, and it has emollients suitable for hydration; helps prevent
water from leaving your hair; it seals in moisture. (Just as silicone does ) That is one of the main reasons baby oil is made of 100% mineral oil, enhanced with fragrance.
Most hair care products and skin care products will have Mineral oils, Silicone, and chemical ingredients. The main purpose is not to eliminate every ingredient ( that is almost impossible, even organic products will have a certain level of chemicals unless you apply the fruits and vegetables directly to your hair). The most important factor is to ensure that your products contain a high level of natural ingredients,
however, some people decide to use only organic or 100% natural products which is a great idea. You can also opt for totally natural products such as natural fruits and vegetables).
The reality is, that if we are doing everything we read in magazines and hair forums and our hair is still damaged, we must make a decision about which products to use in our hair; find out what really works for you. Don't judge a product by just its ingredients; judge it by the main components and the final results.
If there is a group of women using specific hair care products and most of them have long healthy hair, it is a big possibility that the products work. Make up your mind and decide what is your most important priority when it comes to your hair health.
For example, Miss Jessie's hair products are one of the best products ever created to enhance or define curly hair texture and these products also contains Mineral oil.
I have used Dominican hair products since I was a kid most of my family's hair is coarse and our hair has always been long and pretty much healthy, I have never experienced hair loss or dehydration, although some Dominican hair products contains mineral oil.
I honestly believe, that ultimately, the best product is the one that works for you.
