Jojoba oil should be used to treat hygral fatigue, which refers to the process of swelling and shrinking of the hair fibers as the hair undergoes wet-dry cycles. It is used to treat thinning hair, since it adds volume.
Jojoba oil serves as an efficient treatment for dry hair. Additionally, it promotes hair growth when mixed with other essential oils and massaged into the scalp. The oil can be safely applied to any type of hair, due to its moisturizing effect and similarity to sebum. It has been commercially grown and sold since the 1970s, after the United States imposed a ban on importing whale oil.
