Thistle oil

The first oil I ever had any success with, was thistle oil.
It was completely random: I had bought it for cooking use and on a whim, I put some in my ends and wrapped a plastic around it.
For the first time ever, my hair didn’t throw a fit over oil.
Up until then, it always felt like I was “missing” out on something. It seemed like all other longhairs had the whole oil-thing perfected and had amazing results with it and just couldn’t live without it.
Me? My hair turned into a horrible stringy mess if I tried to oil it.
Up until that very day where I put it in the ends like that day.
Since then I have made oils work for me.
I still can’t use any on the top half of my hair without irritating results, but I don’t feel the need to force it to work.
However, I haven’t been able to find thistle oil since then.
Not that I have put a lot of effort into it, I have just been checking the oil-sections of most supermarket I have been in.
Now, randomly I found it.
And I’m very excited to see if it’s actually any good… 


  1. Thistle is not one I'm familiar with although I assume it's made from crushed seeds. What was your experience with argan oil?
    It is reputed to be non-greasy and quite "magical" for hair usage.

  2. I like argan oil for sure, but I tend to use it more on my skin than on my hair, haha
