Hey all,

I've read some interesting things about Sesame Oil (http://beauty.indobase.com/carrier-oils/sesame-oil.html) and was wondering if any of you have tried it?

What did you think? And how did you use it? I've got a bottle so I might try it in some mixes but thought it'd be great to hear other peoople's experiences too. I couldn't find anything on it when I did a search.

Thanks x

I've tried it and its like a regular oil that just sits on top of the hair. I didn't like the smell of it though, too strong.

The sesame oil I use is Hain Pure Foods (http://www.amazon.com/Hain-Pure-Foods-Sesame-Ounce/dp/B000FH18WC) Sesame Oil and this oil doesn't have a strong smell at all; maybe because it's not organic, iono.

I use it as the base oil for my sulfur mixture and I chose this oil because of it's vasodilating action.
I've never had a problem with buildup.

Oh wow! Sounds like providing your not allergic it can give mix results.

The reports i read for it sounded pretty convinving though, suggesting it's a good oil for skin as well as hair?

Its a bit confusing but I'd love to hear what you thought of it when you tried it msjaim

And thanks for the replies so far everyone,

I've used the seasame oil and minoi oil from the Body Shop. I used it on my relaxed hair and on my skin and don't remember a strong smell. I'm not sure how it would feel on my natural hair though.

I'm using it now and I like it. It's one of the only oils that my hair likes and soaks up. And it's cheaper than most oils. I got a big bottle from the market for $4. Most others (just sit on top of my hair. The smell didn't bother me. I also rub some on my hands at feet at night when I am oiling my hair.

You know I eat so much Asian food with seasame oil now that and it seems so strong that I think I'd be hungry walking around with it on my hair ;)

Hi karaposa, have you noticed any softening/moisturising qualities when using it on your hands and feet?

decent moisturizer , but the smell is a lil strong( not too repulsive). i tried to mask it w/tangerine & clove eo... the "bad" smell doesnt last long though
