I’m still figuring out this sealant thing: I’ve learned all about the importance of sealing moisture into the hair, but what confuses me at the moment is the conflicting information:

According to the Scienc-y Hair Blog article/post “Oils: Which Ones Sink In versus Coat the Hair,” oils that have a sealing property include jojoba oil, rice bran oil, etc.

But I hear all these naturals vlogging, blogging, etc. about how they use coconut oil to seal, etc. People don’t seem to be distinguishing between PENETRATING OILS and SEALING OILS.

I have jojoba oil, but I tend to just seal with my usual styler: gel.
