Hey, do you happen to have a good web address for where to purchase these online, that would ship to CH without costing an arm and a leg? Thanks
I did see hair oils in the Asian shops (Svenson) in Basel - most common oils used in india would be mustard seed, coconut, sesame so you could get these in the shops (usually with beauty products - not with the food). The companies I use are in the UK - this one does ship overseas but you don't see the price until you go to checkout - but you could email them:

Any cold pressed, virgin vegetable oils can be used for hair/massage so you can check the healthfood stores as well. Even if they seem expensive you only need a tablespoon at a time so they will last - especially if kept in a cool dark place.

So many thanks for all of you! You give me very good advices. She is coming to visit me next month and I'll try somethings with her , Thanks
I guess your mum has arrived by now. I wouldn't experiment around with too many things too much it might make her hair fall out.
Perhaps just go to a pharmacie and get some good solid useful practical advice and a get a good product which has proven to be good.

I agree, I was at the local Drogerie, Sf17 for 100ml Jojoba oil.
Avocado oil was not to be found.

Re: question for girls, thin hair?

I was thinking of that Monoi miracle oil from the Body Shop...it does smell wonderful . If not, I do have olive oil and walnut oil at home in impressive quantities )

Also, do these make your hair greasy? Like on the long term, does it become greasy faster after you wash it?

Olive and walnut oils are perfect.

My hair only looks 'greasy' while the oil is in it - it washes out perfectly - if you do feel it is oily - try applying the shampoo while your hair is dry - then rinse it out. Also, what is important to note is that the oils should be massaged vigorously into the scalp primarily and then the excess oil that is on your hands can be stroked through the hair, especially the ends. Its about nourishing and stimulating the roots so that the new growth will be thicker and healthier.

I LOVE monoi oil!! I didn't know it was at the body shop. As this is normally a coconut oil base it would be perfect for your hair. You can also blend this with some of your olive & walnut oils so that you get the nice smell but don't use as much.

You are wonderful, great tips, thank you so much! I have good hair for the moment, but it never hurts to keep it shiny and healthy

Avocado oil is in Coop, 17 Sfr for 250 ml. I find that quite ok, I think I'll grab a bottle and use only that for the moment

Re: question for girls, thin hair?

Onion juice is very helpful. Atleast that is what many of the Asian countries use. Best
