African Royale Hot Six Oil Review

African Royale Hot Six Oil

When you have thick, curly hair, it’s almost inevitable that you become addicted to oils. Olive oil, castor oil, jojoba oil–there’s so many to choose from. And I’ve tried just about all of them. The only that my hair loves more than water and conditioner is oil. Oils instantly moisturize, add shine and lock in moisture while conditioning hair over time. I live for moisturizing and sealing and adding oils to my deep conditioner so they’re a huge part of my haircare routine.

My holy grail oil is a rich blend created by African Royale called Hot Six Oil. It earns the name from its versatility as its suitable for the hair, body and skin and can even be used as a hot oil treatment. Which is totally believable because Hot Six Oil is formulated with pretty much every great natural ingredient you can think of. There’s a blend of oils including olive, castor, sweet almond and more. Plus other goodies, like Vitamins A, E and D as well as henna and ginseng. Basically, everything under the kitchen sink that nature has to offer to keep your tresses healthy and shiny.

A huge plus for me!
