This is a wonderful product. I used to suffer from severe acne. I was on accutane twice, once when I was 19, and again at age 26. Until just a couple of years ago, I constantly had to treat with a dermatologist to keep me face from erupting. But I've found some natural products that have given me beautiful skin for the first time in my life. This is a wonderful product. I've used it for a couple of years. It has great anti-aging properties as well as keeps your skin clear. I used to suffer from severe acne. I was on accutane twice, once when I was 19, and again at age 26. Until just a couple of years ago, I constantly had to treat with aner. I do this morning and night. Second I use a witchhazel/tree tea oil toner. I buy a bottle of witch hazel and then add a 1/2 oz. or so of tea tree oil. Third I use benzoyl peroxide. You won't need this if you are not acne prone.Fourth I use a face cream with glycolic acid. Aqua Glycolic and [@] have good products. The glycolic acid encourages rapid skin growth and helps keep your skin clear. Supposedly it is a good anti-aging product. In the morning I then apply sunscreen, at least 50 SPF.If my skin still needs it, I apply moisturizer. At night I mix a couple drops of jojoba oil in my moisturizer. I don't add the oil in the morning because it's a little greasy. And my makeup won't stay on if I have jojoba oil on my skin. But the JO is an amazing make-up remover! This is the best regimen I have found - when I tell people who haven't known me for years that I used to have cystic acne, they can't believe it.

I love Jojoba Oil! To me it's a miracle oil that is great for EVERYTHING! Skin problems, hair, cuticles, wrinkles, moisturizing, ANYTHING! This specific brand has a different smell than all the other brands I have purchased. It smells like dry coffee beans or toasted nuts. Very strange when it's supposed to be 100% natural. Not sure. The uses are still great but the only thing that turned me off was that smell. I will finish it but I doubt I will buy this brand again.

      Comments about Desert Essence 100% Pure Jojoba Oil for Hair, Skin & Scalp, 4 fl oz:

      This oil has multi-purposes. It is loaded with vitamin E so you can use it as a natural preservative for homemade products. It is great for hair and skin. Instead of buying expensive toxic water-proofer for leather you can use this oil. I use coconut oil to clean and moisturize it. On my shoes/boots I let the coconut oil absorb for several hours and then apply a small amount of jojoba oil.

      Bought for hubby's peeling, easily broken fingernails. He's only been using about a couple of weeks, so it's too soon to tell if it's working on his nails, but he commented about how soft it makes his hands. I started using a week ago & product has done wonders for my cuticles.

      Glowing skin and healthy hair

      By RY

      from AFG

      Comments about Desert Essence 100% Pure Jojoba Oil for Hair, Skin & Scalp, 4 fl oz:

      I bought this with the intention to repair and protect my hair. I wear my hair in a tight bun for 16+ hours a day, 7 days a week for work. My ends are a rough. I apply this to my damp hair after the shower from about the middle of my hair on down, focusing on the ends. I use my fingers to comb it through. I avoid the roots to avoid any greasy look. It detangles and gives a nice, healthy shine to my hair. It also works as a frizz serum. My hair is naturally very curly, but I slick it back for my work bun. My ends seem healthier. At one point, my scalp where my part is got sunburnt and I applied this. The itching and flaking went away immediately. I started using this on my whole face to include under my eyes and it is giving me a really nice glow and does not look greasy at all. I still put my moisturizer over it (for SPF) and my skin looks so healthy and even clearer. I do have combination skin and acne-prone on my cheeks and chin, and this has not triggered any breakouts. I was worried about my mascara running because of the oil, but it hasn't! The environment here is hot, but not very humid so I don't know how it would work in humid weather, but it's worth a shot. You can use this on your hair, face, or body (made my elbows very soft). I am very happy with this purchase.

            I use this as the base oil for my hair treatment. It works great. I do have more oily than normal hair the day after the treatment, but that is to be expected. After the second wash, all is back to normal.

            I use this for skin and hair. I combine it with a moisturizer and sunscreen. On my hair I put it on at night and wash normally in the morning. Use lightly on thin hair as a little goes a long way.

              Comments about Desert Essence 100% Pure Jojoba Oil for Hair, Skin & Scalp, 4 fl oz:

              This is a great, light-weight oil that quickly absorbs into your skin. It doesn't have much of a fragrance at all, and the best part is it has so many uses! Where do I begin?

              Hair:
              It works great as a deep conditioning treatment for your hair. I apply it before washing, leaving it for at least 20 minutes, or sometimes overnight wrapped up in a bun or braid and covered. It washes out clean, does not leave any residue behind, and makes your hair soft, shiny, and healthy. Sometimes, I also add a little to my ends before putting my hair up in a bun (I am in the military) and I feel it keeps it moisturized and protected from the damage caused by scrunchies. I have drastically reduced the amount of split ends I have since using this.

              Skin:
              It is an amazing body moisturizer. Use this after the shower, at night, if you want amazingly soft skin. It absorbs fast so you don't have to worry about making a mess. Sometimes I add a drop or two to my normal body lotion when I want extra moisturization.

              Face:
              I alternate between this and 100% Organic Argan oil on my face, after washing, at night. I wouldn't recommend using it in the morning since it is oil and doesn't have SPF, but as a nighttime moisturizer it is awesome. It doesn't clog my pores or cause break outs and it makes skin super soft.

              The only downside to me is the bottle. I wish it had a pump of some sort that dispenses smaller amounts and that didn't require you to turn it upside down to get it out. I mean, it is oil, so it can get a little messy at times, but that isn't enough of a downside to not use this great product. I already have a second bottle on hand so I don't run out!

                Comments about Desert Essence 100% Pure Jojoba Oil for Hair, Skin & Scalp, 4 fl oz:

                I love jojoba oil! My hair is very damaged from too much coloring and styling. Its also very long. The only way I keep it from being a tangled frizzy mess is with this oil. I just rub about 3 drops between my palms and them smooth is through the ends of my hair. If I put it on while my hair is still damp, I may use a bit more. Beware of using too much though, it will just look like you didn't shower.

                I highly recomend this for people with sensitive skin or perfume senstitivities.

                Jojoba oil is superior to much more expensive products in terms of smoothing, detangling and adding shine.
