How to use jojoba oil

You can use this product on your face. It is easily absorbed, it does not leave your skin oily and also prevents blackheads. You can apply it pure, dabbing some drops on your wet skin, or you can add it to your daily face cream.

Apply it on your body right after showering: it’s perfect for people with dry skin who don’t like heavy oil or products which don’t easily absorb.

Jojoba oil will also help reinforcing and hydrating your hair, other than eliminating fizzy hair. Just apply it on your wet locks before the shampoo, and let it set for at least 30 minutes.

You can also apply it on your scalp, to regulate the sebum production and fight dandruff. If you use some drops of this oil before blow drying your hair, it will prevent fizzy hair and protect it from hair dryer damages.
