Cooking oil On Your Hair

Have you tried cooking oil on your hair? Well,  I have.

I remember just doing so out of curiosity. What I used was frytol cooking oil- the one made from peanut or groundnut butter. I had run out of coconut oil, I think and needed to prepoo before using a shampoo which contain sulphates. I remember scanning my brain to find out which oil I could use. I went to the kitchen cabinet and frytol cooking oil was the first thing I saw! I poured some into my hands and it was quite thick. I prepooed with it for some hours . Unfortunately, I don't remember if I shared the results on this blog. What I recall is having very oily hair after the prepoo. It was worth trying though.

Now, after all these years, my definition of cooking oil goes beyond what we use in the kitchen. I don't use frytol again; I've switched to a healthier one, the sunflower oil. I might even move to coconut oil very soon for some basci frying eg omelettes. Most of us limit our understanding of cooking oil to vegetable ones including frytol- a very popular brand. I haven't used frytol in ages but I know you may have it in your kitchen.  That means you can easily grab a spoon and use this kitchen oil! Why? Because peanut oil can be used on the hair. Apart from frytol, I think you can extend your curiousity to other cooking oils. Most often, the alternative options are the sunflower oil, coconut oil, palm kernel oil, and palm oil. Palm kernel oil is very effective for prepoo and hot oil treatment. There are some palm kernel oil products already prepared for prepoo and hot oil treatment at one of the online shops. I might grab a bottle to give it a try. You can also purchase palm kernel oil at the market as some women use it for commercial fish frying. Yes, the kenkey fish you've been taking is most likely done with palm kernel.

Therefore, don't hesitate in using cooking oil including Palm oil.l


  1. I haven't tried vegetable oil or palm oil on my hair. I'm sure it would work well.
